What is an RTA
An RTA is a Rebuildable Tank Atomizer. It provides you the vaper with the flavor of an RDA and the convenience of a sub ohm tank. Basically an RTA is a rebuildable atomizer with a tank that surrounds the build deck. Most vapers love RTA’s because of their convenience.
They come in many different forms as far as the deck configurations go. There are:
Single Coil RTAs
Dual Coil RTAs
Triple Coil RTAs
Some RTA’s excel in DL vaping while others excel in MTL vaping. Some have top airflow, Some have side airflow, and some are bottom airflow. RTA’s come in just about as many configurations as an RDA does. The best RTA for you will really come down to personal preference.
Differences between an RBA, RTA, RDA & RDTA
An RBA is any type of atomizer that can be rebuilt. In other words it is any sort of atomizer that you can install your own coils and wick in. The term RBA stands for Re-Buildable Atomizer.
We already know that an RTA is a Rebuildable Tank Atomizer. An RDA is a Rebuildable Dripping Atomizer. An RDTA is a Rebuildable Dripping Tank Atomizer. Since we already went over an RTA’s and RBA’s, let’s go over the other two quickly.
RDA’s comes in many different configurations. They also come in many different styles as far as airflow and coils go. Like the RTA, there are single, dual, and even triple coil RDA’s. There are many different types of decks that are available as well. There are also different types of airflows. The basic airflows being top, side, and bottom airflow. The thing that separates an RDA from an RTA is that there is no tank. Instead, you have a juice well that you can either squonk into from a bottom feeding squonking pin or you can drip directly onto the coils. In both scenarios, the excess juice falls into your juice well in order to keep your cotton wicks moist. Some RDA’s have shallow juice wells and some RDA’s have deep juice wells.
An RDTA is a Rebuildable Dripping Tank Atomizer. The name itself can be a little misleading because you really don’t drip directly onto an RDTA. You could if you desired to but it would kind of defeat the purpose of having a tank below the deck. The whole point of using an RDTA is to avoid the act of dripping. An RDTA is an RDA with a tank situated below it. You hang your wick(s) into the tank, therefore eliminating the need to constantly drip. While they may not be as convenient as an RTA because of their limited capacity, they are definitely more convenient than an RDA. You could think of an RDTA as an RDA with a super-deep juice well.
Things to Know When Building an RTA
RBA’s in general can be frustrating for many vapers. It does take a certain amount of patience and skill to be able to build a rebuildable atomizer and get some good results. That is not as true now as it was as little as three or four years ago. Back then, you really needed to have a great wicking game. Now, it’s not that important as most rebuildable atomizers have become easier to build and wick. The best RTAs to practice wicking on will be one with a nice big build deck and big post screws.
My best advice to you would be to watch a lot of videos where they actually build in the video and just be patient. Like everything in life, the more you do something the better you get at it. I remember when I first started building it took me 20 to 30 minutes to get an atomizer built and wicked properly. Now, I do it in about 3 minutes. In most cases RBA’s will give you much better flavor than any of the sub ohm tanks out on the market today. Hopefully, you will get into building your own atomizers and stick with it. If you do, you will be rewarded with a great vape, I promise.
