KAEES Solomon 2 RTA Introduction
The Kaees Solomon 2 RTA is the latest RTA from somewhat new vape manufacturer Kaees. They came onto the scene in 2017 launching a few atomizers and overall I’ve been pretty impressed with their output. They haven’t been popular though and the only reason I can think of is why they don’t make anything that stands out.
Most of their products to me, seem like improved versions of existing products. In the same sense, the Kaees Solomon 2 RTA reminds me of an improved version of the Geekvape Zeus RTA. It’s a single coil, leak resistant designed RTA with top airflow channelled down to the side. It’s available in 2 colours, black and SS both with a gold AFC ring.

When I first got this RTA, it reminded me of the Geekvape Zeus. It has the same metal blade-like design to channel the air from top to the side of the coils to make it a leak resistant design. They added some things the Zeus didn’t have though, like a different build deck and a bubble glass for a large 5ml capacity. I love that they include an 810 tip, 510 tips, and 510 adapters but all are plain black Delrin. Some may like that but personally, I like a little more flair on my tips. I’ll be comparing it to the Zeus quite a bit in this review.
Build Deck and Wicking
Let’s talk about the build deck now. It uses a dual post, 1 hole per post, staggered deck. This is good since there is a place for your top lead and bottom lead. It also means you don’t need to worry about coil position or pre cutting leads like the zeus RTA making it easier to build on. The Kaees Solomon 2 also has 1 air blade, not 2 like the Zeus and the air flow is directed lower than the Zeus.
It’s really easy to slap in a coil and since the screws are top down, it won’t twist your leads for flat coils like fused Clapton. My one complaint though is the negative post feels like the cut out for your lead is backwards and should have been cut out of the other side which makes the possible coil size smaller. You can fit a 4mm ID in there as the max, in my opinion, so the large ID can make up for the loss of a wrap or 2. The post screws are good quality hex screws which are my favourite.
Wicking is pretty easy overall. There are 2 holes to drop down your wicks to the bottom of the deck. It’s slightly raised much like the Zeus. You’ll really want to thin out your leads a lot and leave plenty of room in the holes for the juice to come in and air to escape. Using really thin leads didn’t give me any flooding or leaks, but if you don’t thin them out enough you’ll vapour lock the tank and it won’t wick well.
KAEES Solomon 2 RTA Performance
Performance wise, I used it as a single coil RTA only as intended. My max recommendation is a 3.5mm ID, however, 3.0-4.0 mm also worked well. I’d say 3.5mm is ideal. I ran mostly fancy wires such as fused Clapton and aliens but also ran one round wire build. All of them worked well but I prefer the fused Clapton personally. Overall the flavour was above average for a single coil RTA and better than I’ve had from any other top airflow RTA and better than the Zeus. I was very impressed with its performance.
Overall Impressions, Details, and Extras
It’s a dual top only airflow that channels the air to the sides of the coil and a little under the coil as well. AFC is easily adjustable and on a stopper both on and off the mod. Very smooth. The tank has texture on both the top cap and bottom base making it easy to grip and disassemble or remove the top to fill. It’s a full DTL vape but not too airy. It comes with a Delrin 810 drip tip, a Delrin 510 Drip Tip, and a 510 adapter.
The quality is really nice on this RTA. All the threading is smooth. There is no JFC. It’s just a well built RTA. It’s a 24mm diameter so won’t overhang on most mods. The airflow is pretty smooth and not loud. It has the standard top fill method where you unscrew the top cap to expose 2 large fill holes that can be filled with any bottle type or by pouring e-juice in. It comes with a 5ml bubble glass and a 3.5ml standard glass.

So with all that said, do I recommend this RTA? I don’t like to do a hard yes or no, this one I’m going to lean towards the yes. If you want a leak resistant single coil RTA this is the one to get. If you like your Zeus RTA, you’ll love the Kaees Solomon 2 RTA.
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.
