RDA / RTA / RDTA
So you’ve finally arrived in the big leagues, huh? Rebuildables are some of the most advanced and rewarding systems out there, and we’ve got the biggest selection and best prices you’ll find anywhere, from Geek Vape to Vandy Vape and beyond.
For those who may be newer to the world of rebuildable atomizers, let’s take the time to discuss each option. The first acronym you’re going to run into is “RBA”, which stands for “ReBuildable Atomizer” and it’s just a catch-all including each of the subcategories.
An RDA is a “Rebuildable Dripper Atomizer”. These systems don’t have a “tank”, or juice reservoir, to hold your e-liquid. This means you’re going to be dripping juice directly onto your wicking material yourself in between vapes. That might sound a little bit tedious, but it is easily the best way to get those huge clouds you’re always seeing on social media and whatnot. It’s also a good option if you like to switch juices often.
RTA stands for “Rebuildable Tank Atomizer”. Unlike RDAs, the RTA includes a juice reservoir, or tank, to hold your e-juice. Just like with standard sub-ohm tanks, you just fill the tank with juice and vape until it’s gone before refilling. This is obviously more convenient, but you sacrifice a bit of performance and will also have to contend with a more challenging build process due to the extra parts included.
If you’re new to rebuildables, we definitely recommend that you begin with an RDA, a couple of tutorial videos, and a bit of patience. The learning curve can be a bit steep, but your effort will be well-rewarded.
