Introduction – iJoy Limitless RDTA Plus
The packaging is a pleasant art-worked blue slip cover over a rigid plastic case. On the front we have the product name, the LMC logo and the iJoy/Limitless co-designed message.
To one side we find the iJoy and Limitless logos, the other a disclaimer/warning about coil ratings, proper building and centre pin adjustment.
On the back we have a product description, contents list and authenticity scratch panel.

Design and Build Quality
The iJoy Limitless RDTA Plus itself is imposing, standing at 61.5mm tall with a diameter of 25mm and liquid capacity of 6.3ml. It’s available in green, blue, red, black and stainless steel finishes.
As with the RDTA this is a Genesis style tank but the styling has taken a step forward from the original.
At the top the curved chuff cap has been replaced by a flat Delrin cap with knurled edges and two means of altering the airflow at the top: The wide bore drip tip can be removed to allow a wider flow directly from the raised lip on the cap or alternatively it can be replaced by a Delrin reducer allowing a normal 510 tip to be fitted.
The cap screws onto the airflow adjuster, which can be pulled free of the main tube. The main tube bears the Limitless logo and some tasteful scroll artwork, encircling it completely including the two massive cyclops style air slots.
The airflow can be adjusted both in terms of volume by rotating the cap and direction by rotating the main tube.
Pulling the main tube upwards reveals the deck. This has been reworked from the first version of this RDTA.
The velocity deck now has an 11mm post centre distance, with 2.5mm post holes. The screws have been altered so two titanium screws fix the upper post holes vertically while two stainless steel grub screws fix the lower post holes horizontally.
We can see the wicking holes leading to the tank, as well as the glass retaining collar which has the juice filling slot. Juice filling is achieved by pulling the main tube slightly upwards to reveal the filler, indicated on the collar by a small drip symbol.
Removing the glass retaining collar and the glass itself we see the complete central pillar and deck assembly.
On the bottom we have the serial number, iJoy and Limitless co-design message and a fully adjustable gold plated centre pin. This stands sufficiently proud to allow safe use with mech and hybrid mods.
How Does The iJoy Limitless RDTA Plus perform?
Using the supplied fused Clapton coils, it was an easy task to get the RDTA+ ready.
The deck is roomy, the posts sturdy and stable. The thick wire fitted easily through those bigger post holes and dropping the long wicks through the holes into the reservoir was easy.
That said, this is a Genesis style tank, so care needs to be taken to make sure the wick fills the deck holes sufficiently that leakage when tipped is not a problem.
Not so easy was filling the reservoir. The fill hole sits between the two legs of cotton, so a bit of wiggling is needed to fill it evenly.
Our reviewer said that the RDTA needed at least 50W to get going. The RDTA+ needs more, much more.
The supplied coils come out at 0.13Ohm and are thick, which means lag and heat soak.
The deck is encased with metal and sits on a solid metal pole, meaning the whole tank is a heat-sink.
At 85W we need several draws to warm the tank up and even then we have a lag of approximately 1 second before we hit peak production.
Re-fitting with thinner gauge coils did improve this and with lower air flow and the 510 adaptor fitted flavour production was good along with a good amount of vapour.
But it still takes a while to warm the body of the tank up.
The single coil plug fits well and straight away we get less lag and correspondingly lower airflow as the plug covers this.
But so far what I’ve described isn’t what the RDTA Plus is about.
Put the stock coils back in, open up the airflow, refill the ejuice and…. Well, the pictures say it all.
I kept turning the power up and even 215W is an achievable vape (albeit making sure you give the wick time to catch up and you keep the tank filled).
Huge, dense clouds not over hot but still some flavour. The only thing that marrs the experience (apart from the obvious e-juice bill!) is you do get some spitting and popping at times but I suspect a lot of this is due to the nature of the fused Claptons.
An anti spit-back might not have been a bad idea however.
As is expected with a Genesis styled device this is not one for leaving on its side or putting in a pocket, especially when warm.
Given any excuse this will leak unless you’ve wicked it incredibly tightly which would then compromise its ability to vape.
The other flaw… the juice bill. Flat out the 6.3ml tank is emptied in a few draws (so make sure you reduce your nicotine strength!).
Final Review Verdict
This iJoy Limitless RDTA Plus, in its default configuration, not an everyday RDTA.
It was never intended to be, this is the crazy muscle car RDTA+ that Limitless wanted and they most definitely got.
It can be tamed into a more flavourful, usable device but that’s rather missing the point.
This was made to be a cloud beast, a show off, an indulgence and its makers have achieved just that.
It needs a high wattage mod to achieve its potential and really only makes sense with one.
Would I replace it? Yes, but not for a day to day use but purely to please the playful geek in me 🙂
- Beautifully styled
- Well made
- Good fitting seals
- Good spares package
- Massive power capacity
- Capable of huge clouds
- Excellent 510 pin
- Usual Genesis style leaks
- Tank absorbs a lot of heat
