The Best RTAs for Beginners

Most people who start vaping will begin on a simple device that takes pre-made coils. Pre-made coils though over time wind up being much more expensive than building your own, so many people will often look to move into building their own coils using an RTA. The upfront cost of building is more because you need tools, wire, cotton, and preferably a meter to build on, but over time it becomes much cheaper than using pre-made coils so the only advantage you lose out on is the convenience since building takes more time to do and can’t be done on the go while swapping a coil in a tank can. So if you’re ready to make the leap into the building and are looking for an RTA, this list of best RTAs for beginners will help you pick the best ones.

There are 2 types of RTAs on this best RTAs list. MTL RTAs made for low watt MTL vaping and DTL RTAs made for medium watt DTL vaping. All RTAs on this list will be a single coil as it’s easier for a beginner to start with a single coil RTA than it is for a dual or more RTA. The list is in no particular order and I suggest checking reviews of each item to find what suits your needs best.

Best RTAs for Beginners – 2. Cthulhu Hastur MTL RTA Mini 

The Mini Version of the original Hastur (coming next on the list), this small well built affordable MTL RTA is very portable and looks good on a small mod. One of the smallest ones on the list. It only has a 2ml capacity but comes with a nice frosted spare glass tank to give it a unique look. Plenty of air options to tune your vape, a nice easy build deck to build on and good quality post screws means it’s a great starting RTA.

Best RTAs for Beginners – 3. Cthulhu Hastur MTL RTA 

The original Hastur MTL RTA is quite a bit bigger than the original and the biggest one on the MTL list. If you don’t mind the extra bulk, what you get is a well-built affordable MTL RTA. It has a nice 3.5ml capacity and also a frosted glass tank like the mini. The defining feature is a replaceable insert for the air under the coil to fine tune your vape. Despite its size, the air options, frost tank and easy to build on deck with good post screws make this a nice way to start.

It’s affordable and available in a wide range of colors. Lots of accessories and a simple easy to build on deck and affordable price make this a great choice for beginners.

Best RTAs for Beginners – 6. Geekvape Ammit 25 

The Ammit 25 is one of the best single coil RTAs on the market for flavor. It won’t give you the leak protection if you wick it wrong like the Intake. However, it will perform with the best of them flavorwise. It’s still quite easy to wick though and has a nice easy to build on deck and doesn’t take a huge build for great flavor. This RTA comes with 3ml and 5ml capacity options. Affordable and in tons of colors with tons of accessories the Ammit 25 is a real winner for beginners and more advanced vapers.

Best RTAs for Beginners – 7. Digiflavor Pharaoh Mini

The Digiflavor Pharaoh mini is very similar to the Ammit 25 and the Digiflavor is the same company as Geekvape so it’s essentially a very similar device as the one above but branded differently. The main difference is the build deck which features a spring loaded clamp system making building really easy and making it a great choice for beginners.

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.
