Finding the best RDTA vape isn’t quite as straightforward as finding other rebuildable atomizers.
Reason being that RDTA’s seem to have dropped off in popularity with many vapers opting for RTA’s or RDA’s.
Good news is there has been a few releases recently that will keep all RDTA fans happy.
What is the Best RDTA?
There are still a number of brands that continue to release RDTA’s.
Here are our top picks .
1. Vandy Vape Pyro V3 RDTA (Editors Choice)
Obviously when you see “V3” in the name you are aware this is the 3rd instalment in the Pyro RDTA series.
One of the main upgrades for this version is the airflow which is of course adjustable and features honeycomb style inlet holes on the barrel.
The airflow then travels to outlets below the coils and at the side of the coils to get air travelling around more surface area on the coils.
As for the deck itself this has a versatile layout for single or dual coil builds and on review was found to be easy to build on. During review the flavour was comparable with RDA’s and the airflow system worked beautifully.
For all you squonk fans the kit includes a hollow bottom feed 510 pin so you can fill the Pyro V3 from the deck fill port or the bottom.
- Solid and bottom feed squonk 510 pins included
- Adjustable honeycomb airflow inlets
- Side and bottom airflow deck outlets
- Single or dual coil easy to build deck
2. Oumier Wasp Nano RDTA (Best Single Coil RDTA)
The Wasp range from Oumier have really impressed all round and the Nano RDTA proved to be “Flavour and Cloud Dynamite” when it arrived with Laura-Ann for review receiving the coveted 10/10 in all aspects.
This is one of the smaller RDTA’s on this list having a diameter of only 22mm but still manages the standard 2ml e-liquid capacity so no skimping there.
Styling wise with clear or resin barrel assemblies this also has a built in drip tip so not much scope for customising that but you can always grab a different colour barrel to pimp things up a bit.
The barrel rotates and feeds the side airflow inlets which then direct the air through tunnels in the deck posts and right at the sides of the coil.
The posts have slots in so you can slide the coil legs under with ease which I find a huge bonus on rebuildables as it is so much easier.
To refill a dedicated port is located on the deck
- Single coil build deck chucking out the flavour and clouds
- Slotted posts for easier building
- Small diameter ideal for the majority of mods
3. THC Tauren BF RDTA (Best RDTA for Squonking)
The THC Tauren BF RDTA really impressed when it came to Ecigclick for review – chucking out the flavour and plenty of vapour.
The deck is for dual coils and has an angled post design – these posts make sure your coils are positioned perfectly in line with the 28 micro airflow outlets. Also being on an angle means the airflow is hitting the coils from the sides and below.
As the airflow inlets have a 45° angle pointing down as they enter the deck this should prevent any leakage through the airflow. You can also adjust the airflow by rotating the airflow control cap.
A 2ml e-liquid chamber is housed below the deck and the kit also includes a hollow bottom feed 510 pin if you want to use this on a squonk mod. If using with the solid 510 pin there is a port in the deck to add e-liquid. So this is in theory a top and bottom filling RDTA!
- Gold Plated solid and bottom feed squonk 510 pins included
- Excellent build quality
- Easy to build
- First class flavour and vapour
4. Vapefly Galaxies MTL Squonk RDTA (Best MTL RDTA)
Vapefly have kit appearing on a few of our top rated lists and for a new company they are really knocking out some quality items! The Galaxies MTL Squonk RDTA lives up to its pedigree for flavour and vapour!
As this is for Mouth to Lung (MTL) vapers you will find the airflow control to be more precise. There is the standard rotating barrel airflow control plus two airflow inlet valves on the deck. Adjust the screws to close or open these valves to tailor the airflow further.
The name says squonk and this little beauty works a treat for squonking with the 2ml e-liquid chamber below the deck and the ability to store more e-liquid in a squonk bottle should keep you going for a while. If you are not a squonky type you can still refill the chamber from the top via the spring loaded fill port.
Being an MTL device this has a single coil deck designed for the higher resistance style coils and although only being 22mm diameter uses the space really well with two gold plated posts making coil installation one of the easiest out there.
- Gold Plated solid and bottom feed squonk 510 pins included
- Easy build single coil deck
- Adjustable airflow via barrel and dedicated airflow valves on the deck.
- Easy to use spring loaded top fill valve
5. Dejavu DJV RDTA (Best RDTA for Flavour & Cloud)
The DJV RDTA was designed by the Vape Reviewer Adrian Lo Dejavu and received high marks in our review.
Our reviewer Laura-Ann found the dual coil deck a breeze to build on with different clamp options for clamping the coil legs at different heights.
There are two airflow systems – the bottom airflow which flows to the underside of the coils is fixed and the side airflow which is adjustable hitting the coils side on too! Again in review the flavour and vapour output from this system were impressive.
Another nice touch is how the base has a reverse thread so you can’t accidentally unscrew it when removing the RDTA from your mod.
The chamber will hold 2ml of e-liquid and refilled via a spring loaded port in the centre of the deck.
- 24mm dual coil deck
- Easy to build with coil placement options
- Dual airflow – side adjustable and fixed bottom inlets
- Centre spring loaded refilling
What is a RDTA?
RDTA stands for Rebuildable Dripping Tank Atomizer.
It falls under the RBA (Rebuildable Atomizers) category that includes RDA’s (Rebuildable Dripping Atomizers) and RTA’s (Rebuildable Tank Atomizers).
You can look at an RDTA as the result of an RTA and RDA having some funky time together. It offers dripping, like an RDA, and a tank that you can fill like an RTA.
How Do You Fill an RDTA?
It will depend on the RDTA you have. The majority are filled by removing the outer sleeve to access the fill ports.
Of course, if you have a squonk RDTA then it will be filled via the Bottom Feed (BF) pin.
How Do RDTA’s Work?
With RDTA’s, the build deck sits above the tank allowing your cotton to drop down into the juice filled tank.
As they also have a top cap similar to that of an RDA you can also drip e-liquid directly onto your cotton/coils.
So there we have it. Our Best RDTA vape list. It’s short and sweet but when the products are this good who needs a huge selection!
