RE: RDA or RBA
I prefer RDAs 100%. Tanks are annoying to build, while RDAs are very easy in my opinion. I've heard good things about the SubTank RBA deck, but haven't tried it yet myself.

RE: RDA or RBA
What's the difference?  They're the same thing, one just has an additional step to get it in the tank, lol

RE: RDA or RBA
There's a huge difference in most cases. RDAs often have post holes to make building easier, while tanks usually require you to trap the wire under a screw. That alone is enough to make up my mind. Also tanks require much smaller, tighter builds, whereas an RDA gives you much more room to work. RDAs have more airflow and create bigger clouds, where rebuildable tanks are usually severely lacking in airflow. I could go on, but the point is that saying they're the same thing is like saying a calculator is the same thing as a computer because they both have a screen and buttons and some microchips.

RE: RDA or RBA
I guess I define things strictly by functionality.  So as far as I'm concerned, an RDA is a small RBA.  They do the same thing in different applications.  So the question becomes - Drip or tank?  That's where the functionality difference comes in.

RE: RDA or RBA
That's an interesting way to look at it, I've never heard someone say that an RDA is the same thing as an RTA. I'm assuming the OP meant RTA, because technically an RBA is a broad term meaning rebuildable atomizer and encompasses tanks and drippers, so I'm pretty sure he meant tanks vs drippers. But there's just such a vast difference between rebuildable tanks and RDAs, to me it seems ridiculous to say they're the same. RDAs outperform tanks every single time without even trying. The only good thing about tanks in my opinion is the ease of use, since you don't have to drip every few puffs. I guess I just don't understand how you can say they do the same thing, that's like saying a cigalike does the same thing as a SubTank. Technically it's correct in the sense that they both produce vapor, but they're so vastly different in every other way that it just doesn't make sense to me to compare them. 
I don't mean this to be offensive or starting a fight by the way, I just genuinely don't understand the logic there.

RE: RDA or RBA
I am mostly a tank man
though I do like to drip when I am in the house
this has changed because of the better tanks available on the market
6 months ago I used to carry a tank and a dripper around with me

if at first you don't succeed ,call it version 1.0

RE: RDA or RBA
 
RDA -> Rebuildable Dripping Atomizer (you directly drip e-liquid on the wick/coil, it only holds a few drops at a time, silica wick is mainly used on these) examples are Igo-l, phoenix, nimbus, v5 etc. 


RBA -> Rebuildable Atomizer (these ones have a tank that holds e-liquid and are mainly used with vertical stainless steel mesh wick) examples are Cobra, did, ZAP, AGA-T, Ody, Ithaca, RSST, etc.


Though the point is the difference in functionality but that's the whole point itself. you cant say a vape and a cigarette has no difference as they both satisfies your cravings or something. Both have nicotine in major to make you feel relaxed. But they both work differently the same way RDA and RBA works differently.

RE: RDA or RBA
I prefer an RBA because the flavour from them is awesome and they hold more juice than an RDA. Good Although I tend to use an RTA more Scratch_one-s_head but who really care as long as you enjoy vaping whatever your using Dance2

Vaping Saves Lives. To vape is to advocate..
