A Chat on Vape Tanks: Picking Out Your Vape Atomizer - Part 2

In order to make an informed choice about vapes, knowing about things like the RTA (rebuildable vape tank atomizer) and RDA (rebuildable dripping atomizer) is key. We already looked into the advantages and disadvantages of the RTA. The previous blog also started to introduce the RDA, which we will now look into further:


A key difference between the RTA and the RDA is that the latter does not have a tank for holding onto the e-liquid. Instead, there is a direct liquid drip by the user onto the coil or wick. This is done through removing the cap and getting it replaced before vaping occurs. There are certain cases wherein a small reservoir is present under the coil assembly, generally holding <1mL or a rather small quantity of e-juice.

When the conversation moves to talking about the best vaping hardware unit, people always respond with the RDA. This is particularly relevant to vapour output being pure and intense. It is ideal for cloud chasers who are looking to blow major vapour clouds with flavour that's intensive. RDAs have turned into go-to equipment for more advanced vapers. That said, like everything else, there are both advantages and disadvantages to this tank.

Advantages of Using an RDA Tank

  • Cost-efficient because both the coils and cotton are cheap
  • Customizable coil options
  • Easily managed and maintained
  • Intense flavour
  • Sets a great standard in terms of experience
  • Solid, stable performance
  • Thick clouds
  • Wide variety of options

Disadvantages of Using an RDA Tank

  • Beginners will have difficulty and find complexity in wicking
  • Coil building experience is necessary for RDA potential to be maximized.
  • Small wells are the only storage capacity for storing ejuice in the UK.
  • Vape e juice in the UK must be dripped often, which makes it rather difficult.

People who are fond of tinkering with coil building and vapers who are particularly choosy will certainly see the RDA tank as one of their all-time favourite devices for vaping. With that in mind, it's not hard to see why the prices can be on the pricier end of the spectrum, even if you purchase from an online shop with plenty of options. All told, the RDA is essentially not a recommended buy for people who are just beginning to vape.

When it comes to a vaping machine, the atomizer is a crucial component. It's essentially a vape's engine room, which leads e-liquid to become vapour. There are three key categories that atomizers can get divided into: Disposable Atomizers, Replaceable Coil Head Atomizers, and Rebuildable Atomizers--the aforementioned RBAs.


Another atomizer that should be looked into is the rebuildable dripping tank atomizer, or RDTA. Put simply, it's a combination of the RTA and RDA. There's a tank for holding juice, but it comes with an "Auto Dripping" function.


When it comes to vape, there is a rather marked difference between the RTA and the RDA. The RTA is better for beginners when it comes to vape, while the RDA is better for picky vapers or people who like tinkering with coils. Another option is the RDTA, which combines the two.
