Choosing the right tank or RBA is essential to maximize flavor and cloud production. Our choices all have maximal capacity and air flow for a nice flavor, and coils that last longer than just a couple of uses.
Vape tanks and RBAs are used to heat the vaping liquid into a vapor that can be inhaled. These components of the vaping device are highly customizable by the user so that the vaping experience is exactly what the vaper wants it to be.
Vape tanks, which are also called atomizers, is what makes the vaping experience what it is. The tank is where the coil and vaping liquid are stored. The size of the tank determines the amount of vaping liquid that can be used at any one time. There are a number of factors that must be considered in deciding which vape tank is best to meet the user’s needs. Here are the primary considerations:
Disposable or rebuildable
Plastic, Pyrex, or Stainless Steel and Anodized Aluminum
Cartomizers or wicks
Bottom coil design or top coil design
Dual or single coil design
Some of these choices depend on the vaper’s level of experience and interest in customization. For example, people with some experience and interest in building coils may choose a rebuildable tank. The different options have different features and capabilities. Choosing a vape tank requires that the vaper have an idea of what is desired and matches those desires with the products available.
Vape RBAs (“ReBuildable Atomizers”) are a specific category of atomizer systems that allow the vaper to build their own coil. The two main types of RBAs are the RTA (“Rebuildable Tank Atomizer”) and the RDA (“Rebuildable Drip Atomizer”). Another type of RBA is the RDTA (“Rebuildable Drip Tank Atomizer”).
Rebuildable Tank Atomizer
A rebuildable tank atomizer gives the vaper a chance to build custom coils. The RTA has a deck with posts covered by a chamber cap. The tank reservoir is around the build deck to store the vaping liquid. The tank prevents the user from needing to manually apply vaping liquid to the wick and/or coils every few puffs. This gives the vaper an uninterrupted vaping experience. The build deck has a chimney to direct the vapor to the right place. The vapor liquid saturates the wick, which moves the liquid to the coil to be heated into a vapor. The dripping in an RTA is automatic.
Rebuildable Drip Atomizer
A rebuildable drip atomizer also has a deck with posts for the coils. The deck is covered by a cap. However, the RDA does not have a tank for storing vaping liquid. Instead, there is a drip tip that allows the user to drip vaping liquid from the bottle onto the wick or coils. These types of atomizers are often used for people who want a more intense and purer flavor experience during vaping. However, they do require that, after a few puffs, the vaping liquid is manually dripped by the user in order to continue.
Rebuildable Drip Tank Atomizer
The RDTA is the most complex type of atomizer. This type of atomizer combines features of the RTA and the RDA. In this type of atomizer, the vaper controls the flow of vaping liquid. One difference between this type of atomizer and the traditional RDA is that the vaping liquid does not need to be refilled after a few puffs. This part of the process is automated to allow for uninterrupted vaping. Because these atomizers are more complex, they are rarer. Usually, they are used by experienced vapers who want a lot of power in customizing their vaping experiences through custom coils and controlling the flow of vaping liquid in the atomizer.
