Best RTA for 2018

Best RTA Wotofo Bravo RTA

Earlier this month I posted an article: Best Vape Pens for 2018 so far, and I decided to keep that trend going with this article. Today I am going to talk about the Best RTA of 2018 so far!

Best RTA of 2018 So Far

So you have managed to kick the habit of cigarettes and started Vaping, well done! Now you are looking to up your game and find something with a bit more of a kick to it and really enjoy those flavours you have seen at the local vape shop. The next stage is to start making or buying your own coils, and installing them into a rebuildable device. An RTA will give you that custom build feels, with a tank of juice to keep you going through the day.

Best RTA – Geekvape Blitzen RTA

The Blitzen RTA is one of the latest offerings by the powerhouse that is Geekvape. The Blitzen is reminiscent of the Aromatizer RTA that hit our shelves a couple of years ago but brings updated features and even better vape quality.

This 24mm atomizer comes with multiple glass options to give you between 2ml capacity and 5ml capacity with the bubble glass option. This RTA features a postless dual coil deck with slotted screws at the size of the deck. It features a honeycomb airflow that is as close to the coils as you can get, bringing a smooth airflow and superb flavor. The large wicking holes allow your liquid to saturate the cotton giving you a juicy, moist vape experience! It also comes with a unique “snakeskin” wide bore drip tip that varies in color depending on the tank color, that just looks awesome!

The build quality of this tank is phenomenal and provides you with the high standard that you expect from Geekvape!

Best RTA – Wotofo Bravo RTA

Wotofo is also well known for their incredible products such as the Troll RDA / RTA and the Serpent RTA, and they have now released the Bravo RTA. This is a 25mm RTA that comes with a “half turn” top fill system and a resin style 810 drip tip depending on which color tank you choose (are you noticing a trend?). The tank is capable of 4.5ml capacity as standard and a whopping 6ml with the bubble glass. Even with your juice guzzling builds, that’s enough to keep you topped up all day!

The deck on the Bravo RTA is something special too and features a clamp style deck that flattens against your coils when you tighten one of the 4 x Philips head screws. This is perfect for your flatter wire builds, and features a banked airflow to direct the flow directly underneath the coils.

The large juice flow holes will compensate your larger builds (tested up to 3mm fused Clapton) to deliver a constant flow of liquid to your cotton, to give you a dense vaping experience.

Best RTA – Blitz Intrepid RTA

My final choice for the best RTA’s so far is the Intrepid RTA by Blitz. I haven’t heard of Blitz before this product, so if this is their entry product to the market, they have done extremely well!

This 24.5mm RTA has a 3.5mm capacity (no extra bubble on this) and a unique postless deck. The deck is separated down the middle by a ceramic block that accommodates for either a single or a dual coil build. This is the first of the RTAs I have mentioned that can officially take a single coil.

The ceramic block sits between the positive and negative posts and provides the airflow underneath the coil. The block is press fit into the deck with an oring (time will tell if this holds up with regular changes) and means you can build the coil very close to the deck without a worry of shorting.

The tank features a pretty unique hinged top cap for filling and it locks into place with a satisfying click. The drip tip on this is also pretty unique, in so much that is doesn’t push into the body, but the drip tip is more of a resin sleeve that sits around the mouthpiece on the top cap. Unfortunately, this means you have to use the proprietary ones, but I really enjoy the airflow and feel of the “drip tip”

Final Thoughts

Moving into the RTA scene could be a new thing for you in 2018, but with the amazing tanks that we have seen just 3 months in, you will not be short of products to find your perfect tank. I have personally always favoured an RTA over and RDA, so seeing what is coming out already, it makes me excited for what else 2018 will bring!
