I can only assume if you are reading this article you can appreciate new RDA’s and want to see what the market has to offer. What new features will help me achieve cloud bliss. Maybe this next RDA will have that one unique feature that will completely change the industry like the Velocity RDA did for Posts.

Let’s take a look at some of the newest RDA’s and see what they have to offer.

After the article, It would be cool to hear from you to find out what ones you think will help in the evolution of the RDA.



The CIA BSC V2 is an RDA that has a lot of innovative features. If you are talking about airflow or innovative post design the BSC V2 RDA has them in spades.

Let’s start off with the airflow. I count ten ports that air can travel in and out of the BSC V2. 4 of these shoot air directly into the chamber. The chamber section features six slots three on each side. Near the top, you then have two more 9mm by 1.5mm air slots that enter horizontally from the top of the chamber.

Then on the very top of the top cap, you have eight 2mm diameter adjustable air holes that shoot air vertically downward into the chamber. (Fig:1)

All of these combined create an RDA designed for Clouds.

The deck on the BSC V2 features three unique “U-style” posts with a terminal free design. (Fig:3). To secure the coil leads into the posts you use a system, not unlike a vice. The leads are sandwiched in-between a flat plate and the bottom of the U-shape post. And is clamped down by tightening the flathead screw. This design gives you a ton of room to fit leads and all those crazy builds I see you guys making.

Lastly, the juice well is a deep 6mm allowing you to keep vaping for longer. The 510 connection is copper to ensure you get maximum conductivity.

Fumytech Cyclon RDA

Fumytech Cyclon RDA

The FUMYTECH CYCLON RDA is designed in France by Fumytech. The first thing you notice about this RDA is the cyclone pattern embossed into the side of the RDA. That is to play on the Airflow that you guessed it is channeled into a cyclone when the correct airflow settings are set.

For airflow, you have a few options. The first is by adjusting the upper airflow control ring.(Fig:1) Adjusting this will allow you to go from just side airflow to the Cyclone system. That will sorta “guide” the airflow down in a rotating or “cyclone” fashion. Or you can just shut the Upper airflow and just use the dual bottom airflow. Maybe get more flavor.

The deck on the Cyclon almost reminds me of an old school RDA. With the round posts and tall round bottom airflow tubes. The  posts each feature 2.46mm terminals with large 5.20mm grub screws to hold the leads in place.

The Juice well on this baby is massive. Because this is so new and not a ton of store have a Cyclone I can’t seem o find the exact number on how deep it is. But In one of the listings, there was a 6ml in the title. And that is what it looks like it could hold so I’m going with 6ml juice well.

Cyclon Specifications

  • Diameter: 25mm
  • Juice Well: 6mm
  • Adjustable Bottom Airflow
  • Close off Upper Airflow
  • Upper Airflow Control Ring
  • Dual Posts With 2.46mm Terminals
  • 6mm Juice Well

Now for something by Tobeco to finish out the list. The Stargate RDA. This RDA is a Frankenstein RDA. The Stargate takes the bottom airflow and deep juice well of the Tsunami, and the clamp design of the Goon RDA. The Stargate is coming hard with the features. Do they pay off?

Back to the deck. The posts feature no terminal holes but use a clamping system much like the Goon RDA. The big difference between the two are the Goon claims are gold plated and horizontal, and the Stargate claps are not gold and vertical. Not sure how that will work out but it could be nice or not so much. The negative post is milled into the deck for conductivity and strength.

The airflow is exactly like the new Tsunami 24mm. With four internal inlets that are positioned under the coils. These inlets are fed by two cyclops air intakes around the base of the RDA. You can adjust by rotating the top cap around to cover and reveal more of the openings.

Overall the Stargate takes some features that we love from some other popular RDA’s such as the Tsunami and Goon and mashes them together to create this RDA we have. For the price point of only $18.00, you won’t loose out on much if you Don’t end up liking it.

Stargate Specifications

  • Diameter:22mm
  • Juice Well: “Deep”
  • Dual Post Design
    • Clamping Terminal Design (Like Goon RDA)
    • Spring Supported Clamps
    • Easy To Install Coils
    • Philips Head Screws
  • Dual Adjustable Bottom Airflow
  • Quad Kennedy Style Airflow Tubes
