Drippers were the only thing a self respecting cloud chaser would ever be caught with in public vaping on a few years ago. Now with high performance RTA’s and Sub-ohm tanks on the market Drippers are less and less popular if nothing more than for the fact you have to keep “Dripping” in order to continually vape. Don’t be mistaken, drippers are still here and better than ever. Here is a list of some amazing drippers (RDAs) to try in 2016

The deck features 4 huge posts with 2mm terminals. Also classing it up a bit with the 18K Gold plated center post and 18k Gold plated brass contacts for absolute great conductivity.
