The Best RBA, RDA & RTA E Cigs

Newcomers to advanced vaping may have their work cut out getting to grips with some of the more exotic terminology, especially when it comes to different forms of atomizers. Atomizers and tanks can - with the appropriate setup - be configured to behave in particular ways, and consequently producing among the best vaping experiences to be found anywhere - so it's certainly worth learning about. There's three main definitions for different types of atomizer -RBA, RDA and RTA’s - which we'll now explain in absolute layman's terms for the confused and the curious!

RBA (Re-Buildable Atomizer)

RBA (Re-Buildable Atomizer)

This is a term often used as a 'catch-all' for atomizer/coil rebuilds yet serves as a good introduction to what we're getting at here. 'Re-buildable' is the key here and it works exactly as it implies, that the user can simply reconstruct and refashion their atomizer by taking it apart and changing the coils and wicks held within it.

Why do that? You may ask.

Well that's a fair question, and to understand why it's so popular we need to understand quite how important the coil and wick are. They are quite literally the beating heart of your vape setup, with the coil delivering the heat and the wick producing the vapour. By manually replacing these with crafted components (there's plenty of kits available to get set up with) it is possible to produce magnificent vape, basically by taking an existing highly configured product and improving it along the lines of personal taste.

By no means is it straightforward and it's essential to really understand what you're trying to do and the limits of the materials you have at hand when rebuilding atomizers. In a nutshell this is as 'hobbyist' as vaping gets - you need only check out one of the many websites devoted to rebuildables to understand this is a passions many people take very seriously indeed!

RDA (Re-Buildable Dripping Atomizer)

There's actually plenty of dripping atomizers commercially available (they're the most popular) and like all mods they can be absolutely amazing when correctly configured. A dripping setup basically means that there isn't usually any tank of spare e-liquid - all of the juice is kept within the atomizer. The user manually applies the liquid that typically will be good for between 10-20 full flavoured hits depending upon resistance etc.

It's easy to dismiss this as a waste of time - but this is as close to perfect, pure vaping as anyone will ever get as the liquid is absolutely perfect every single time.

Depending upon the model the rebuildable aspect is that users can replace, customize and add-to their wicks while still retaining the dripping method leading to amazingly powerful vapes.

RTA (Re-Buildable Tank Atomizer)

RTA (Re-Buildable Tank Atomizer)

These are more accessible that RDAs and much less 'showy' in that they produce less extravagant vapour yet are much easier to use and configure. As implied these use a tank that contains the spare e liquid and needs to be refilled much less often than the RDAs that as mentioned require near constant topping up when used for any duration!

This is done thanks to there being a small inlet from the tank leading to the atomizer/wick that keeps them saturated as long as there's juice in the tank. As such they are very accessible, low hassle and still produce an impressive vape - just don't get jealous of the person next to engulfing the room with their RDA!

As with all re-buildables these can be modified by altering/customizing the wicks to produce more vape, a very specialist pursuit that can pay off in the long term with enough application.
