The term RDA is a bit loose in the vaping world, what does this abbreviation actually mean? Some people call it a rebuildable “deck” atomiser, some call it a rebuildable “dripping” atomiser. Either way, it describes the same type of product. Actually, the correct term would be rebuildable dripping atomiser as this type of product is used for dripping e-liquid onto coils that you have fitted yourself.
How do I use an RDA?
RDAs were originally made to be used for mechanical mods only, but nowadays they can be used on regulated box mods as most now support the low ohm resistance coils and also provide sufficient power. Most RDAs are customisable, you can alter certain components depending on how you like to vape e.g. Cloud chasing or flavour chasing set ups.
To put things simply, using an RDA is pretty easy once you have sufficient knowledge. With a little time and patience you’ll soon be playing around with different coil builds. With these rebuildable products, you simply wrap your own coil, install it securely and then thread some cotton through so that it can soak up any e-liquid dripped on to it.
Using an RDA is more for the hobbyist vaper, and it does require some knowledge, time and patience. However, the use of an RDA can be more beneficial than the standard sub ohm tank.
Benefits of using an RDA
There are 3 main benefits to using an RDA:
- High performance vaping
- Build your coils to your desired resistance
- More affordable than purchasing standard coil heads.
Before pre-made coil heads were made available the only way you could get high performance vaping was by building your own coils. Although you can buy pre-made coil heads now, it still doesn’t compare to the performance you would get from an RDA. RDAs are used by hobbyists who want to calibrate their vape to their exact preference and for those who wish to vape as affordable as possible.
