RDA stands for Rebuildable Dripping Atomizer and they are one of the three different types of rebuildable atomizers. The other two options available are Rebuildable Tank Atomizers or RTAs and Genesis atomizers. There are also RDTAs or Rebuildable Dripping Tank Atomizers and these were recently developed. RDTAs are a mix between an RDA type deck design and a tank that drips e-liquid. The coils used by rebuildable atomizers are made by wrapped wire and the most popular wire types are Titanium (ti gr1), Nickel (ni200), Kanthal A1 and Stainless Steel.
There are different types of RDAs available and the options vary in size and materials. In general, RDAs are considered as an ideal option for vapers who want intense flavor and high vapor production. They can produce thick clouds and give users the possibility of trying multiple e-liquids fast. All you need is a few drops to taste a flavor and decide if it is right for you. You can find cloud chasing RDAs that can be used with robust and large coils and they also sport big airflows that allow them to produce thick clouds of vapor. A Cloud chasing RDA is great for users who enjoy direct to lung (DLT) vaping. There are also flavor RDAs with reduced airflow that is better for mouth to lung (MTL) vaping. While many flavor RDAs offer good vapor production, as the name suggest, focus on delivering intense, enjoyable flavor. There are also RDAs that are able to offer the best of the two worlds.
If you are thinking about getting an RDA, or if you are looking for the next RDA device to take your vaping to the next level, you will find the best options in this list. There are new models being released on a regular basis so you can always find something to try.
