The REMentry RDA is a new re-buildable dripping atomiser from REM Creations, previously responsible for the SMPL 2.0 mechanical mod, which was a best seller in the USA, and one of the shortest RDA’s ever produced, the REMatty.
The REMentry RDA promises to offer a straightforward 3 post RDA, that appeals to newbies and experienced users alike, complete with competition top cap to appeal to cloud chasers, large build deck and solid posts, at an affordable price without any compromise on the performance.
I think it is a really nice, simple looking RDA, but does it also perform??

- Spares kit with spare o-rings, screwdriver and post screws
Top marks for the packaging, the REMentry RDA comes housed in a very boutique perspex box with foam insert containing the RDA and the spares. The REMentry RDA is available in five different colours- black, stainless steel, blue, white and red. The design and finish is superb, a really clean looking and simple stylish design that belies its relatively cheap price tag!
The REMentry RDA Set Up
The REMentry RDA is primarily aimed at entry-level users with it’s simple three square post design with large post holes, the posts designed to ensure that the Phillips head screws won’t get threaded in the posts, and the posts won’t spin as well as being easy for beginners to build with.
Despite it’s short stature you have loads of room for your builds and a huge 5mm juice well that retains plenty of juice. The REMentry RDA was sparkling clean on arrival, not a speck of machine oil residue was found here, so I could dive straight into building!
Now the REMentry RDA despite being a three post RDA aimed at being user friendly to beginners is still a dual coil RDA, I found no way to close off the second airflow slot in order to support a single coil build.
Not to worry though, I pressed on with a dual 7 wrap clapton coil build with a 3mm internal diameter that came out at 0.35ohms.
Coil legs slotted in perfectly to the post holes and the screws trapped the legs down with no trouble, despite this being quite a thick build! I still had a bit of room to spare in the deck and probably could have had an extra wrap or two on either side.
The top cap was quite stiff when trying to remove it, there is a large section of delrin along with an o-ring holding the top cap in place which requires a bit of force to remove it.
The delrin wide bore drip tip is fixed to the afc ring, the airflow control is quite easily adjusted with this system allowing you to close right down or open right up the opposing cyclops airflow slots to suit your tastes. Happily this section comes out easily allowing you to drip your juice onto your build.
- Three post design with squared shaped posts and large holes for easy building
- 22mm in diameter
- Adjustable cyclops airflow
- Matching competition cap with airflow tabs
- PEEK insulators
- Delrin base to reduce heat
- Copper 510 pin for conductivity
- Four beautiful and vibrant finishes
How Does The REMentry RDA Perform?
Despite its relatively low price tag, the REMentry RDA is one of the best performing RDA’s I have ever used. For starters, the friendly build deck and posts allow for any number of different builds to be installed, and this can all be done easily even with the thickest of wire material used.
Flavour or cloud chasing builds can be installed and used with little issue, and there is plenty of space available. With the 5mm deep juice well you find yourself needing to drip juice less and less, as plenty of juice is retained in the juice well, meaning the REMentry RDA is ideal for those who like to drip on the move.
This is also easily done without needing to remove the entire top cap section, as the drip tip/airflow control ring combo can be pulled out and re inserted with ease.
Using one of my go to e-liquids, Wick Liquor Contra, flavour from this RDA is outstanding, with it measuring only 23mm from top to bottom you have less room for the vapour to travel to your palate, and thus less room for flavour to dissipate.
The delrin wide bore drip tip spreads flavour out onto your taste buds allowing maximum flavour delivery.
My juices tasted outstanding in the REMentry RDA, and this RDA has really started to become a go to for me when I have been using complex tasting juices. Even with the airflow wide open for lung hits, the flavour was excellent.
Massive clouds are definitely achievable here. With the combination of the delrin base and drip tip the REMentry RDA stays cool even at 100w, your vape is warm at this level but you have no worries about burning your lips on a hot drip tip! With the airflow wide open you can achieve huge clouds on par with just about any dedicated cloud chasing RDA out there, for a mini RDA this really performs superbly well on this front.
Seasoned RDA users and newbies alike will be right at home with the REMentry RDA as it’s very forgiving to build on and provides superb performance in general.

I would love to see a version that truly supports single coil set ups, but I have been really happy with this in dual coil. It is up there with anything that I have tried in the past!
