Cthulhu 1928 MTL RDA Review
The Cthulhu 1928 MTL RDA is the latest RDA from the well-known manufacturer Cthulhu Mods. The 1928 RDA is a single coil 22mm MTL RDA with a squonk pin included. It’s available in 2 colors; Black and SS. Let’s dive in a little bit deeper and find out more about this vape device!
Adjusting the airflow is easy. You just spin the whole top cap and the o-rings are a nice size to make it easy to do. There is no texture for grip but since it’s the whole top cap, it’s very easy to adjust on a mod but can’t be done on off a mod.
The top cap does lock into place as well and all the way one side is the smallest air setting and all the way the other side is the largest air setting so very well done there, and it makes it very easy to screw on and off your mod.
The top cap o-rings are good and it’s easy to pop off and on after you lube them up. Mine was very tight at the start and hard to get off and my o-rings also shed quite a bit. This should have been done better. After I cleaned up the shedding and lubed them up though they worked great so maybe just a little too thick at first. I will ding them for that though.
It comes with 1 standard 510 o-ringed fit Delrin drip tip and 1 standard 510 o-ringed fit tall metal drip tip. The Drip tip fits a little too snug as well and is hard to get out and in. The o-rings should have been a little smaller. Other oring 510 tips fit well though that I tried.
The quality on the Cthulhu 1928 MTL RDA is overall good. After lubing them up, the o-rings for the top cap onto the base feel right and the top cap is snug but not tight. Very easy to take apart with no issues.
The AFC is easy to adjust, the o-rings fit just right and everything is nicely done. The post screws are just ok quality though and 2 spare screws are included (all Phillips screws). It comes with a standard 510 pin and a BF 510 pin like most RDAs these days as well.
The juice well on this RDA is massive. Bigger than most 24mm dual coil RDAs. Plenty of room for extra juice so well done there. The over squonk protection is great. Thankfully due to the size though and being MTL you won’t have to refill the well often. I only used it as a dripper as I’m not currently working on a review for any squonk mods but I did put it on a squonk mod just to test it and it worked well.
It’s a 22mm diameter so should not overhang on most mods on the market today. Accessory wise, there is plenty of spare o-rings and 2 spare post screws, 1 Allen wrench, 1 extra 510 tip but no cotton or coils. Good amount of accessories overall.

So do I recommend the Cthulhu 1928 MTL RDA? I don’t like to say yes or no, but this one I would say yes. There aren’t a lot of good MTL RDAs on the market really. Mostly just the Galaxies and Ammit that I’ve come across. I don’t think it’s better overall than the Galaxies or Ammit but I think all 3 are similar. This one has the biggest juice well of the 3 and better over squonk protection than the galaxies, better flavor than the Ammit.
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.
