My list of best cheap RTAs 2018 includes: 

1. Vapefly Galaxies MTL RTA

Recently, Vapefly has achieved a huge success with their MTL devices. They pioneered the new field of Galaxy RDA and now they add a new rebuildable tank to their line-up.

Vapefly Galaxies MTL RTA has a lot of the same great features which make the best RTAs like Siren 2 and Fury Mini. This is a well-built but affordable RTA. Made for MTL low watt vaping, this RTA comes with a generous 3ml capacity and an even better 5ml capacity bubble glass. The tank offers tons of flexibility and options for a highly customizable draw. The throat hit on the Galaxies is satisfying and the vapor production is rather impressive too. More importantly, the flavor is great.

With great flavor and versatility, this RTA is definitely worth the money for it. I would recommend this RTA to anyone looking for high-quality but affordable RTAs. There is no doubt that this RTA should be included in my best cheap RTAs list!

2. Cthulhu Hastur MTL RTA Mini 

The mini version of the original Hastur comes next on the best cheap RTAs list. The RTA is an innovative single coil RTA design by Brian N. With 2ml e-juice capacity and 22mm diameter, it is very portable and looks good on a small mod.

Designed for the MTL vaping, the Hastur MTL RTA Mini features precise bottom airflow control with 3 air holes and a smaller chamber for better flavor. Together with the extremely slim drip tip and easy top filling design, this RTA is absolutely an excellent vape device for MTL vapers. Besides, this RTA has an affordable price.

Overall, this is an affordable and small MTL RTA which is easy to build and wick, has great flavor and does a tight MTL. I’ll be adding this one to my best cheap RTAs list.

MTL RTAs aren’t very common these days although in 2018 it seems like there are more coming, but there still aren’t many to choose from, and the 3Cvape Savour MTL RTA is one of the better ones for sure out there.

I started vaping in late 2011 to quit chewing tobacco. over the past few years i got a lot more into the hobby side and buying and collecting a lot of gear. Fed up with the lack of good fair reviews i decided to start doing reviews late 2016 and haven’t looked back. I enjoy providing people with technical reviews that are fair and unbiased and from a place of knowledge to help them spend their money wisely.
