RDA stands for Rebuildable Drip Atomizer.

These types of vape tank are popular with vapers that like big clouds and maximum flavour. You have to install your own coils, wick them with cotton, and traditionally they do not have much juice storage capacity – hence why they’re called drippers (you have to drip juice onto the coil before using them).

However, things have progressed A LOT in the last few years, thanks to the rise of squonking, whereby Vape Juice can be stored inside a vape mod and sent up to the RDA via a simple squeeze. This negates the need to drip and solves one of the #1 issues levelled at RDAs – juice storage.

RDA tanks are designed to be simple: you have a deck, a mouthpiece, and a tank. And that’s pretty much it. You have postless decks and decks with posts, as well as new plug-n-play RDAs like the GOAT RDA that require ZERO building. You just plop a modular deck in and go.

The simplicity of RDAs is one of the main reasons they’re so popular with vapers. You get maximum flavour and huge clouds and, because they’re rebuildable, you can customise how it performs by augmenting your coils, their position, and also their resistance.
