[FAQ] Should I Buy an RTA?
Can't decide between an RDTA, RDA, RBA or RTA?

Click here to read PaulS's great article about RTAs.

An RBA is a rebuildable coil for a tank that normally uses pre-made coils (ex. TFV8, Crown, Atlantis, etc).

An RDA is a rebuildable dripping atomizer, which you use by building your own coils and dripping juice directly onto the wick, with no tank full of juice (ex. Twisted Messes, Velocity, Goon, etc).

An RDTA is a tank that's built like an RDA, with the coils on an RDA-style deck and the juice usually in a tank underneath the coils (ex. Limitless Plus, Iron Maiden, Big Dripper, etc).

An RTA is a rebuildable tank which usually doesn't have pre-made coils. The difference between this and an RDTA is that RTAs are designed like tanks, whereas RDTAs are designed like RDAs (ex. Aromamizer, Kayfun, Serpent Mini, etc).

Works for me!

I use tanks or drippers. And refuse to buy coils so the finer distinctions are wasted on me.
