First Impression Out Of The Box:

I just want to start off by saying I did not receive these two items as a kit. The only reason I decided to review the two items together was because they both have the same name. They do look good together, so I figured why not do a review together. Also, I can actually see Wotofo pairing the two together in the future to sell as a kit. So, if that happens, I will be ahead of the curve. I did receive the RDA after I received the mod but I did make sure to spend some quality time with the RDA and I did use a few different builds in it in the time I have had it.

The mod comes package in a typical Wotofo box with its green accenting. Once you open the box, you will see a foam cover. Lift the foam cover and your mod along with a spare squonk bottle is sitting in the foam insert. Underneath the foam insert is where you will find all of the documentation for this mod. It’s a good looking box. As soon as you take it out of the box, it has a very light feel to it. The fire button is gold plated so it really stands out against the black carbon fiber look of the mod. One of the first things you notice when you lift the squonking cover off of the mod is that this mod actually has a 30 amp fuse in it. That’s interesting.

The RDA has a similar color scheme on the box but instead of a flip open box, it has a slide-out sleeve. Slide the box out of the sleeve and you will see the Nudge RDA sitting in the foam insert with a 510 drip tip adapter sitting next to it. The first thing you notice about the RDA is the absolutely beautiful drip tip you receive. It is a resin drip tip that matches the color of the RDA perfectly. It does have a marbleized type of look to it and it is taller than most of the chuff style caps that have become popular with today’s RDA’s. Underneath the foam insert, you’ll find all the documentation for the RDA as well as three bags full of spare parts, coils, and cotton.

Wotofo Nudge Mod RDA Review

From Top To Bottom:

The Mod:

On the top of the mod, we have a gold-plated 510 ring. The threading is gold-plated as well and so far, all of my atomizers have sat flush on this mod. The 510 pin itself is a squonking 510 because this is a squonking mod. The 510 is spring-loaded and gold -plated just like the rest of the pieces on the 510. It has a medium sort of spring to it and a medium sort of throw. This mod will hold a 24mm atomizer with very slight overhang on the sides. I have had no issues at all with any of my atomizers making a solid connection on this box. It’s definitely one of the better 510’s I’ve used on some of these mechanical squonking mods that have been hitting the market lately, even though technically, because of the fuse, this is not a true mechanical squonker. I do really like the way the gold plating contrasts up against the carbon fiber look of the box.

With the fire button facing you, on the right side of the mod is the removable panel with the squonking hole in it. The front of the panel has a carbon fiber look to it and it actually does have a little bit of texture to it as well. Take the panel off and on the interior, there is one large magnet that coincides with another magnet on the battery tray. The opening for squonking is what I would call just the right size. I have no problem getting my thumb in there or any other finger. There really is not a lot of play on the battery door. It stays in place pretty solidly.

Once the panel is off the mod, on the left side of the mod is where your squonking bottle goes and on the right side is where your single 18650 goes. In between the squonking bottle and 18650 battery, there is a slot for a 30-amp fuse. My mod came with the fuse installed already and four spares in the box. The squonking bottle is soft and it does have a stainless steel collar that is removable for easy cleaning. The tube in the squonking bottle is on the loose and you will have to readjust it after filling.

Wotofo Nudge Mod RDA Review

One thing that really bothered me about the spare squonking bottle is that it comes with no collar, tube, or cover. I don’t know what Wotofo was thinking but what good is a spare squonking bottle if I can’t fill it up with juice and have it ready to go at a moment’s notice. I guess the only reason for this spare squonking bottle is if you actually damage the one that comes with the mod. Otherwise, the spare is pretty useless. Bad move on Wotofo’s part, they should have included a full squonking bottle set up as a spare or don’t include one at all. What would have been a total win is if they included a bottle with a collar and cap. Then the user could fill it, cap it off and when they are ready to refill, all you would have to do is swap out the tube and cap of the installed squonk bottle and you are ready to vape. I think by not doing that, Wotofo missed an opportunity to distinguish themselves from the pack.

Wotofo Nudge Mod RDA Review

I know some people may not like it but I do like the fact that they included a 30-amp fuse in the box. I’m always for safety and if this can keep just a few people safe, I’m happy to go along with it. Wotofo did include a bunch of spare fuses just in case you do something stupid and blow the fuse. I would rather see the fuse blow then someone’s face blow up and have it plastered all over the news. I’m sure there is a little bit of voltage drop with the fuse installed but so far, I can tell you that that voltage drop is very negligible. I would definitely accept that little bit of voltage drop in the place of having a safer mod. Kudos to Wotofo for thinking about safety and putting it in one of their mods. I think this is especially important because squonkers are becoming very popular and a lot of newbies are starting to buy mechanical squonkers. These people that are buying these cheap mechanical squonkers may not necessarily have all the information they need to vape safely. This kind of mod with a fuse built in, at least provides those types of vapers with some sort of defense against their own ignorance.

Another thing I did not like about the internals of this mod is the fact that there are no clear battery orientation markings. Yes, the battery will work, whichever way you put it in, but I think there should have been clear battery markings advising the user to install their cell negative side up. The other thing about the battery tray is there is no strap. You literally have to bang the mod up against your palm in order to get the battery to pop out. I would have liked to have seen some sort of cut out or battery strap in order to make getting your batteries out easier.

Once the battery is removed, you will notice that there are two gold-plated contacts. The one on the top is a lever style contact and the one on the bottom is a button-styled contact. So far, all of my batteries have fit in there nice and snug and I have had no issues with my wraps tearing. There’s been no battery movement or rattle.

On the front of the mod, we, of course, have the firing button. The firing button is gold plated with a gold ring around. The button is circular in shape and it does have a pretty long throw to it. It also has a really nice resistance to it that gives it a springiness that is not mushy at all. Every once in a while though, it does misfire but those are far and few in between. There is some texture around the edges of the firing button and that is there for a reason. This firing button does have a locking feature to it. You simply grab it by the textured part and turn it to the right. This locks the button and makes it impossible to fire the mod. It can be a little bit of a pain in the neck to lock sometimes because you really do have to get your fingers in there to spin the button but it is definitely a pro that this feature is built into the mod.

Wotofo Nudge Mod RDA Review

As I said before, the whole mod from top to bottom is done with a carbon fiber look. It’s a good look, that seems to have held up pretty well. There are a few little scratches here and there that you really have to look to see but for the most part, it has held up nicely. On the bottom of the mod, on the same side of the firing button, there is some Nudge branding. On the bottom plate of the mod, there is also a gold circular plate that is attached to the bottom battery contact. There is some branding on it as well as a star. This plate can tend to get a little warm if you chain vape. Not warm enough where you will burn yourself but you will definitely feel a difference in temperature on this plate versus the body of the mod. The rest of the body of the mod is done very plainly in carbon fiber with no branding.

The RDA:

This RDA is a collaboration between Wotofo and Matt from the Suck My Mod YouTube channel. Matt is a popular YouTube reviewer and this is not his first time making an atomizer but I believe, this is his best effort to date. He has partnered with other companies in the past and most recently, he has partnered with Wotofo on their very popular SMM Serpent single coil tank.

As I said earlier, the first thing you notice on this RDA is the absolutely gorgeous drip tip that it comes with. Mine has a resin, blue, marbleized look to it with a couple of touches of red in there. In my opinion, this is the perfect type of resin wide bore drip tip. It is not too thick and it is tall enough to keep your lips off of the top cap. I love these types of drip tips and I think this one suits to Nudge RDA perfectly. It is an 810 or Goon style drip tip. I have tried some of my other Goon style drip tips in the opening and they have fit just fine. There is also a 510 DT adapter included in the package.

Wotofo Nudge Mod RDA Review

This is one of those RDA’s that has a combination top cap barrel. In other words, the top cap does not separate from the barrel, it is all one piece. The machining is very nice and the interior of the top cap does have a very conical design to it. There are two airflow cutouts on the barrel part of this piece that coincide with two cutouts on the base of the deck. While this RDA does have side air flow, it all depends on your coil placement as to what part of the coil your air flow is going to hit. Mount your coils high and the airflow will hit from the bottom of the coil. Mount your coils lower and the airflow will hit on the side of the coil. The airflow on the Nudge RDA is fully adjustable by spinning the cap around the base of the RDA. It does have a nice tolerance to it but since there is no stopper, it can be a pain to get your RDA off the mod if you screw it on too tightly. Sometimes you actually have to remove the cap of the RDA in order to get a good grip on the base to remove your atomizer from the mod.

Wotofo Nudge Mod RDA Review

The base of the RDA has two o’rings with a very nice tolerance that do an excellent job of keeping the top cap in place. It is not too easy to pull the top cap off nor is it too hard. On the sides of the base, there are two walls that come up, that kind of form an arch around the sides of your coils. It is very reminiscent of a Wasp Nano RDA but instead of having a single coil, it’s a dual coil setup. It’s almost like having 2 Wasp’s decks in one with the coil placement on the outer edges of the RDA. On the bottom of the deck, there is some SMM branding as well as some Wotofo branding. I did install the squonking pin in my RDA in order to use it with the Nudge mod but it does come out of the box with a traditional 510. Both pins have a flathead slot to them and they are easy to swap out.

The deck on this RDA is very interesting. Wotofo calls it their Z post design. It is basically a 4-post design with two posts on the circumference of the RDA and two posts in the middle of the RDA. The alignment of the screws, if you were to connect them with a straight line, form Z configuration. There are 4 terminals and on each terminal, you are able to slide in your coil lead in from the side. This makes coil placement extremely easy and it eliminates the need to have to twist your leads especially on your flat wire builds, because they lay in there nice and flat.

Wotofo Nudge Mod RDA Review

Because of the way they did the airflow around the circumference of the base, it will limit you as far as the inner diameter of the coil you are able to use. Wotofo does include 3 very nice 3 mm ID coils. That’s another thing I just find very weird. Why include just 3 coils? Why not two, and if you are going to throw in the third one, why not go the extra mile and just include two sets for a total of 4? I don’t know, it just seems to me that sometimes, the little things are just not that well thought out all the time when it comes to Wotofo.

Building and wicking on this RDA is pretty straightforward even though the terminal configuration is a little different than most of us are used to. Your leads are held into place by 4 Phillips head screws. Screws are of decent quality but I would have liked to have seen some beefier ones. Once your coil is in place, the only thing you have to be careful of is that your coil does not hit against the airflow wall. If it does that, you will have a short. The coils that Wotofo included ohmed out at .15 ohms.

Wotofo Nudge Mod RDA Review

When I build on this RDA, I do like to mount my coils on the high side. I find that if I mount my coils so that the airflow hits the bottom of my coils that I do get better flavor. The airflow itself with the coils mounted that way is also a bit looser as well. If you mount the coils lower, you are definitely going to restrict some of the airflow because the side of your coil will be right up against the airflow itself. So, if you like a looser draw, definitely mount your coils a little higher and you will get an airier drawer. If you want to tighten things up a bit, mount the coils lower. Wicking is as simple as tucking your coil into the sides of the deck. There is more than enough room for your cotton and because of the post configuration, your leads are not in the way.

The Look, Feel, and General Aesthetics Of The Mod:

I really like the way this atomizer looks on top of this mod. I know, they both have the same name so Wotofo probably did develop them with the idea of using them in conjunction with each other. I just think they look really nice together. Yes, there is a little bit of overhang on the sides because the RDA is 24 millimeters but overall, I think the look is just fantastic. I like the carbon fiber look of the mod and the gunmetal atomizer that Wotofo sent me is a beautiful color that goes extremely well with the carbon fiber look. So far, the atomizer has held up fine as far as the paint and color go. Like I do with all of my atomizers, I did run it through my UC and the paint held up just fine. When you pair the Nudge RDA with the Nudge Box mod, you have a nice, short and compact squonking setup.

How Does It Vape:

Both the atomizer and the mod do vape very well together. I like to hit that I get off of the Nudge box mod even though there probably is some slight voltage drop because of the fuse. I love the flavor that I get off of the Nudge RDA. I think the airflow is very smooth and the flavor is excellent as well as consistent. I like using it in squonking mode but because of the way the airflow is, you do have to be careful that you do not over squonk. It is not that easy to over squonk but it definitely is possible and it’s something that you have to be conscious of. Wotofo also built in a juice splitter to the bottom of the deck that ensures your juice distributes to both sides of the deck when you squonk. I know I have mentioned it before but for this, RDA performs just like a dual coil Wasp Nano would. I get the same kind of airflow and flavor. As far as vape quality goes, when you pair these two together, you have a very flavorful squonking setup.

What Would Make It better:

Sometimes in life, it’s the little things that get you. It’s the lack of attention to detail that can make things significantly better or significantly worse. Most of the things that I am mentioning in this part of the review do not really negatively affect the vape quality of both items but they are enough of a concern for me to bring it up in this section.

  • No Battery Orientation Markings
  • No Battery Strap
  • Just A Spare Bottle
  • 3 Coils
  • Slight Overhang

I have covered all these issues in the actual review so I’m not going to go over them again for the sake of brevity. Needless to say, just some slight attention to detail on some of these issues would have made both items better. Not necessarily as far as the actual quality of vape goes but the overall aesthetics, looks and usability of both items. The overhang thing is a bit of a nitpick but they did name the RDA the Nudge, so it’s only practical that you would assume that it would work with the Nudge box mod and have no overhang.

Conclusion:

I have to say that I really do like both items. I like using both items together as well. I think the Nudge box mod is a very affordable option with a nice safety features built-in as far as the fuse and locking firing button go. It hits just fine and add its price point, it’s a very good value. I like the looks of it and I also like the safety features that Wotofo made a conscious effort to put into this box.

I do like this RDA a lot. I think it’s one of the better-looking, more flavorful RDA’s that have come out lately. I love the color schemes that Wotofo made for this RDA. The drip tip is a total win and the airflow is extremely smooth. The flavor is excellent on it and Wotofo does include three really nice coils.

If you’re looking for a nice little squonking RDA that will perform well in dual coil mode, then it would be tough to beat this combination as far as quality and price point go. If you want to get into squonking and you’re not too familiar with Ohm’s law, definitely check the mod out. It performs very well when you pair it up with the Nudge RDA. Not only will it perform but it’s got those safety features built in for the people who have never tried squonking before and may not be familiar with Ohm’s law. Both of these items are DeucesJack approved.
