What To Expect From The ThunderHead Creations Elite Pro / Lite MTL RTA?

There are two versions of this the Elite Pro and the Elite Lite. From what I can tell the two have different kit contents – the Pro version having all the accessories and the Lite version sticking to just the basics.

As you can tell this RTA is designed for MTL (Mouth To Lung) vapers which require higher resistance coils, more precise and tighter airflow and generally are used with thinner e-liquids. We tell you more in our Guide To Vape Styles.

To achieve the required airflow there are inlet and outlet adjustments.

The airflow comes in through the bottom inlets which have a rotating control to restrict or open the airflow to your preference.ThunderHead Creations Elite Pro airflow inlet

This air then travels to the centre of the deck and exits through the airflow outlet under the coil.elite mtl rta deck airflow

The outlet is an insert which comes in various different sizes and configurations from 2mm to 0.8mm single holes and a multiple hole version too. The Pro kit includes all the inserts plus a 510 base for building the deck on.elite mtl rta inserts

Talking of the deck this is designed for a single coil with 2 posts which looks pretty simple to build.ThunderHead Creations Elite Pro deck

Capacity wise there are some variables too – the tank comes with a metal tank section (armour) with a small PC window (to make it less likely to damage), or there are also 2ml and 4ml glass options too. Which tank section you get depends on the kit you buy and also whether you are purchasing in a TPD regulated area.

Tank options – L-R: 4ml Bubble Glass, 2ml Straight Glass and 2ml Armour

This uses a 510 drip tip and the Pro kit includes a standard 510 tip and a longer one too. Generally the longer drip tips give a cooler vape and are often found on the Digiflavor Siren GTA tanks.ThunderHead Creations Elite Pro long drip tip

My name is Michelle - I am 46 and an engineer and Technical Author by trade. I started vaping many years ago in the days of Tornado tanks, Ego batteries and Variable Voltage. My journey in vaping began again a few years ago and have started to move up in the shiny shiny gadget department and love vaping! I have finally stopped smoking as of June 2019 and that is all thanks to vaping! 20mg Nicotine Salts are my hero! Oh and I am partial to a nice pod mod!
