Updated on: 2019-10-23

Intro

What’s up, Insiders? DeucesJack at VapingInsider.com. Today, I don’t have a mod for you. I don’t have a pod for you. What I got is an RDTA. Yeah, kind of nice to review an RDTA, right? A rebuildable dripping tank atomizer. We’re talking about the Vandy Vape Pyro V3. Is this the best Pyro yet? Make sure you watch the whole review. Find out all my thoughts and feelings.

From Top to Bottom

You can see, I got the sample packaging. I kind of like the way they did it, that window, you can see everything. Kind of cool. Right off the jump, you see, we get a spare glass in there. There’s your barrel section. There’s your deck section. So here’s the barrel section. Kind of has that Drop air flow on it. That’s what it looks like to me. Check that out. Got a nice goon style drip tip there. All your other goons will fit fine, nice and snug. I do like the red one. This is very tight. The air flow is very tight. I’m going to show it to you once I put the tank together. Inside, you can see, very condensed chamber but not much of a conical design.

Here is the deck, post less deck. You got air flow going through the middle. I kind of like that. You can see, nice, big, beefy gold-plated deck screws, right over there. I’ve got that honeycomb airflow in the middle. That’s kind of neat. You are going to lay your coils across this way and your wicks are going to dip into the tank this way. So right here, these holes, they actually get plugged up by these pieces right here so you don’t have to worry about turning the tank to its side and leaking. But those are also your fill ports, that’s where you’re going to fill the tank from.

What’s in the Box

Includes:

  • 1 Vandy Vape Pyro V3 RDTA
  • 1 Spare Parts Bag
  • 1 User Manual
  • 1 Pyrex Glass Tube
  • 1 Coil Lead Guide
  • 2 0.33ohm Fused Clapton Coil

Also included in the box, you get a blue Phillips head screwdriver, you get a squonking pin, a hex key, some spare o-rings, a 510 drip tip adapter, some spare deck screws. You get these rather nice Ni80 fused Clapton coils. They recommend that they’re good for 40-50W. They ohm out at 0.33 and you get this coil cutting tool. The coils are actually not bad. I’m going to use these for the build and I’m going to give this one away.

Building & Wicking

So the first thing you want to do when building this, you want to take your coils. Pop them out of the bag and you want to grab your coil cutting tool. Vandy Vape was kind enough to mark this at the six spot for you so you know where to cut your coils. That’s exactly what we’re going to do. We’re going to put it in the sixth spot right there. We’re going to turn it over and we’re going to clip our leads. Repeat the process with the other coil and now we have the perfect length of leads for our build deck. Now we take our deck section and we just simply pop our coils right in there, just like so. It’s so, so easy. Make sure you hold them down so they don’t pop out while you’re tightening them down. Repeat the process on the other side. Hold them down and tighten them down. And that’s it, your deck should look something like that. Now grab your rod, whatever you want, your screwdriver, and position those coils just like so. And you kind of want them as close as you can. Get them to the edge right here because you want them slammed up against that airflow. You kind of want them even so push them, pull them, do whatever you got to do and when you’re done, they should look something like that.

Now we’re going to pulse these coils and see what we’re working with. We’re ohming out at 0.14 right now. Let’s see what we got here. Get those hot spots out. Looks like we’re good. We’re glowing evenly from the inside out which is exactly what you want. Now we’re going to take our wicking material. Make it nice and pointy, pull it right through, just like so. Now when you cut on this one, on any RDTA, you kind of want to get it right by that second o-ring just so it’s going to hang into the tank. You’re going to see it past the glass, just a little bit. That’s how you want it. Now we’re going to repeat the process on this side and we’re going to use our other wick as a guide. Got it right there. And now on this side, we’re going to do the same thing we did on the other side. We’re going to measure it right up against that second o-ring and we’re going to snip it. Now what you want to do, very important, make sure you get that bottom side in first and just tuck those wicks in nice and gently. Now you see that, see how it hangs down just a little bit? That’s exactly how you want it. See how nice and loose that is? That’s how you want it. Same thing on the other side and you can see nice and loose. That’s how you want it.

So now you’re ready for your top cap. Top cap only locks in one way. Let me show you what I’m talking about. Locks in, just like that. So now you can see, your airflow, when you turn it, you can see it’s shutting off the bottom right there and starting to shut off the side. Turn it some more, shutting it all off till it’s fully closed. And now if you go the whole way along, you can see, you can open up just the top if you want to and then the bottom starts to open up. So that’s how the air flow works. Very similar to the Drop RDA.

Cons

So there we go, Insiders. There it is all put together. I’ll give you one last look around it. I’m not going to fill this one up because I’m actually going to give it away.

Alright, Insiders! Let’s go over those cons and pros. We’re going to start off with cons. I only got one real con on this RDTA, I really do. And it’s the only con I can really think of. The airflow on this one is a little wacky, the way it’s situated. When I showed you how it was closing it off and closing it down, it kind of brings the air flow off-center. I don’t like that. I wish they would have gone a different way with it. Another possible con is, some people are going to say it stole the Drop air flow. It’s just a configuration of air holes. I don’t list that as a con but I know some people are definitely going to point it out in the comments.

But that’s it, that’s the only thing I really got to complain about. Let’s go over the pros.

Pros

First pro is going to be, I get really nice flavor and clouds off of it. Let me show you what I’m talking about. I got it on the Uwell Evdilo, 85W, 0.12. Check it out. Absolutely nothing wrong with that. The flavor is there and the clouds are plentiful. I like the capacity on this one.

The airflow itself is very, very smooth and I like the range that it has. It has from a restrictive DL range to a wide open sort of range. It’s a nice range for people who like to direct-lung hit.

You saw it down low. This one’s easy to build and wick.

Love, love, love the squonk mode on an RDTA. It’s got a really nice drip tip included and I think the overall build quality on this one is really nice, as well.

So that’s it, Insiders. Those are my cons and pros. Let’s talk about this one a little bit.

Conclusion

Those of you that have been watching the channel for a while know that I really don’t consider myself an RDTA guy. I just never got into them. I know people love them in the past. I’m more of an RTA guy. However, I do really like this one a lot and I like it because of that squonking feature. That squonking feature works really well on this RDTA. Not only can you fill up the tank with 2mls and you can probably either, the average squonker have 8ml sitting right below the tank, so that’s 10ml. As you can leave the house with a typical squonking mod. I like that a lot. Bottom line is, if you squonk and you’re into RDTAs, you’re definitely going to want to check this one out and we’ll have a link down below.
