Rebuildable atomizers and tanks are the next step up in the vape world after sub-ohm vaping. Rather than replacing coils, you can rebuild them. These are considered specialist atomizers and are not suitable for use by those who do not have an understanding of battery safety, Ohms Law & rebuilding.
Those making the switch from Sub Ohm Tanks to either RDA’s RTA’s or RDTA’s would be able to rebuild their own coils and replace the cotton within allowing for better flavour and larger clouds.
What is Rebuildable?
At first these acronyms, RDA, RTA, RDTA or even RBA and others may seem daunting at first, however, each type of tank will deliver a different vaping experience. Learn more RDA tanks in our blog.
RDA’s are most commonly known for its versatility and drawing more flavour, larger clouds and delivering a smoother inhale. These tanks are the perfect introduction to take your vape tanks to the next level.
The benefits of an RTA Tank are similar to those of an RDA Tank with the added benefit of a tank to hold larger juice capacity, providing more room for single or dual coil builds without any juice leaking from the tank.
Finally the benefits of using an RDTA Tank is the best of both an RDA tank and RTA tank with the ability to drip extra E-liquid onto your exposed coil build for a more flavoursome hit whilst retaining the extra juice capacity of the tank. RDTA tanks are preferred for its versatility in dripping and holding e-liquid

What should I know about rebuildable atomizers before I start using them?
Rebuildable atomizers are designed for use by advanced vapers and it is always advised to ensure you have a full understanding of how they work and Ohm’s Law before using them. It is very important to know exactly how to rebuild the coils and you should always ensure that you check the resistance before using the rebuildable on a mod, especially a mechanical mod. Once you are sure that the coils are heating up correctly, then you will find that the way you vape may change for good as the amount of flavour and vapour that is achievable from a rebuildable is very hard to match with a normal style of vape tank.
what is an rda?
RDA is a rebuildable dripping atomizer which you may have seen when people used to do vaping cloud competitions. An RDA also known as dripper tank usually has either 2,3 or 4 posts and can house a large selection of different coils such as Clapton Coils, Dragon Coils or Twisted Wire coils. The sole purpose of an RDA is how you apply the e-liquid to the cotton. E-Liquid is dripped on to the cotton and coil, which can produce huge amounts of both flavour and/or vapour depending on the resistance desired.
what is an rta?
An RTA is a rebuildable tank atomizer which is similar to and RDA but once the coils and cotton are installed you would then cover these with the rest of the tank. Once reassembled, you would proceed to fill up the tank with e-liquid and this can use the e-liquid inside to saturate the cotton within the coil to provide great flavour and vapour production.
what is an rdta?
An RDTA is a rebuildable dripping tank atomizer which combines both of the key elements of an RDA and RTA. Usually, an RDTA will have a build deck near the top of the tank and the wicks will protrude into a tank drawing e-liquid up into the coil.
What is an rba?
An RBA is a rebuildable atomizer which normally is used instead of a prebuilt coil. An RBA allows the user to create and install their own coils and wick to the exact resistance they prefer to use. This gives the exact amount of flavour and vapour depending on the resistance of the coil and actually works out a lot cheaper than buying replacement coils.
How much do rebuildable atomizers cost?
This can vary quite dramatically between the brand and the quality of the product. You can get a rebuildable atomizer very cheap however, with prices usually starting around £4.99 - £9.99 but they can go up as high as over £100 in some cases! We have a selection of great RDA's at a reduced priced on our Vape Deals page.
What is the best rebuildable for beginners?
There is quite a selection of rebuildables that would be suitable as your first and one of the best options would be the Smokjoy Pyramid RDA. It is a very simple rebuildable vape tank to build on and has the option of single coils or dual coils and the performance is very good too.
How do I build a coil for a rebuildable atomizer?
We have had quite a few people asking this question in the past too! So our video team put together a great video on our YoutTube channel showing How to build and RDA. This breaks down the best way to rebuild coils which can be used across all rebuildable atomizers and shows you the best way to install them to get the most out of new rebuildable atomizer.
