The good ol’ RTA (Rebuildable Tank Atomizer). A favorite of many vapers these atties meet a particular crowd’s needs. These vapers want the cloud production and flavor of a RDA, but don’t want to drip every 5-10 minutes. Unlike Sub-Ohm Tanks an RTA allows for building coils. Some of us would never dream to use a premade coil/head. We just love the act of building coils.

iJoy Tornado 300W Capable Two Post RDTA

iJoy Tornado RTA

A New Platform for iJoy

The iJoy Tornado is the newest platform from iJoy. They will be basing many more products off this base. The Tornado is said to be capable of withstanding and performing up to 300 Watts of power. That is a massive amount for an RTA. I suppose then it is safe to say they are working on or at least envisioning 300W devices in the near future.

One nice feature on the Tornado is the decks are replaceable. You can get the T4 (4 Holes in your posts) and T6 (6 holes in your posts.) (Fig:1) This allows you to choose between an insane 6 coil setups or a modest dual setup. I for one love the modularity of the design.

The tank on the Tornado holds up to 5mls of juice. But one thing I didn’t like about the tank and the whole design is you can’t take the tank off and play with the coils. You would need to drain your tank, then work on the coils. That is one downside, not exactly a deal breaker for me but still a thing worth noting.

Moradin RTA by CloudCig

CloudCig Moradin RTA

From the Makers of the Fishbone RTA & Widow RDA

The CloudCig Moradin is said to be the first RTA to have a “Pure Ceramic Chamber”. The base is all ceramic minus the hardware and uses ceramic to cover the coils. Ceramic is ideal for these types of uses because of its excellent heat insulation and anti-electrical properties.

One really nice thing about using ceramic to cover the coils is that if your coil ends up touching the cover nothing will happen. But if that was stainless steel like most RTA’s you would get a short.

The tank holds up to 5mls of juice that you fill by unscrewing the mouthpiece and filling via the fill port. The people who have used the tank have loved it. Saying the flavor and vapor production was fantastic.


22mm Overall Diameter

  • Stainless Steel Construction
  • Tank Capacity: 5ml
  • A ”No Leak Design”
  • Featuring a “Pure Ceramic Chamber”
  • Adjustable Airflow
  • Adjustable Juice Control
  • Adjustable Copper Center Screw
  • Dual Cyclops Air Slots

Wotofo Serpent Mini RTA

Wotofo Serpent Mini RTA

So Easy A Caveman Can Do it

The Wotofo Serpent Mini RTA is hands down the easiest RTA to build in this article. You run a single coil much like the kayfun. You install the coil using a “Lay Down Method” and by dropping the coil in place then tightening the screws. (Fig. 3)

The airflow on the Serpent Mini is fed by the dual adjustable 10mm X 1.5mm air inlets around the base(Fig:2). You also have a massive 4mm diameter gold plated center bottom airflow hole directly under the coil to help produce huge flavor.

The tank on the Serpent Mini holds up to 3ml’s of juice. Being a mini, I don’t think that is too bad. You fill the tank via the threaded top fill system that has 2 massive fill ports to choose from.

Serpent Mini Specifications

  • 22mm Diameter
  • Dual Post Build Deck
  • Unique “Lay Down” Terminals
  • Single Coil Only
  • Top Fill System
  • Dual Adjustable Airflow
  • Dual Cyclops 10mm X 1.5mm Each

Bachelor Nano RTA

EHPRO Bachelor Nano RTA

SMOK TFV8 Sub-ohm tank

The little Brother of a Favorite

The Bachelor Nano RTA is another postless deck RTA. Designed to be used with a single coil and extremely easy to build on. The way you put the coil in into place is almost like the Serpent Mini’s Drop in system. You just drop the coil in place and make sure the leads are in the slot and tighten.

Because it is a Nano you can’t expect a massive tank capacity. And they didn’t let us down. The Bachelor Nano holds up to 2mls of juice. You fill the tank via a secure hinged door system much like on the TFV4 tanks.(Fig:3)

Bachelor Nano Specifications

  • 22mm Diameter
  • Tank Capacity: 2mls
