RDTA is the titan of e-juice tank atomizer as it tower over other typical rebuildable tank atomizers like RBAs and RTAs. RDTAs take the best of both worlds and combine them into a single unit, which means they have both a glass e-juice reservoir and a removable top cap that also provides users with access to the coil build inside.

The option to switch up and change certain aspects of the best RDTA is one of the best parts of vaping them. It is also something a lot of vapers want and look for when they want to buy an RDTA, and these vape units do not fail in that area. They feature 510 drip tip adapters and BF squonk pins in their kits so users can convert them into squonk RTAs and use them with BF mods. Of course, these RDTAs all have standard 510 connections for use with every type of vape mod.

The Wotofo Profile RDTA boasts an all-stainless steel construction along with an innovative build deck that can accommodate several different coil builds. The Profile also comes with two pre-built coils made from a new coil material, nexMESH, which combines Clapton coils with all-mesh material. The tank atomizer also has a 6.2ml e-juice capacity and can easily transform into either an RDA or a BF squonk device with the 510-squonk pin included in the kit. The kit also contains several tools like a screwdriver and trimming tools to train novice builders on how to mount their preferred coil build.
The Steam Crave Aromamizer is the second version of the Aromamizer vape RDTA that can hold either 6mL or 3mL of e-juice. This vape RDTA has its build-deck underneath the tank section, which is a change from the top-mounted decks of other units. The build-deck is a Velocity-style (the best deck for beginners), two post deck with four lead slots on either post.
This type of deck can accommodate single and dual coil builds. The posts use side-screw to secure their leads, and there is a bottom-fill port for the tank. There are also bottom airflow vents, one on each side. The entire RDTA is stainless steel and glass, and the deck itself is also stainless steel.
The unit measures close to 23mm in diameter (0.9 inches), and it uses PEEK insulators at the bottom to protect against a potential charge from a mod. The base is knurled to give vapers a better grip when unscrewing the deck from the RDTA. There is also a 510 connection on the base and a heating chamber that caps the deck when users reinstall a coil build back into the tank section.
The Vandy Vape Pyro V4 is an updated version of the original dripper with an increased 5ml e-juice capacity. The Pyro V4 also boasts a redesigned airflow system that floods the chamber with air from all sides, thanks to the dual-sided airflow vents. In addition, the atomizer features a postless build deck that can support both single and dual coil builds. The build deck has a honeycomb design making it easier to mount even complicated coil builds, while the bottom section features an all-Pyrex glass tank piece.
The Hellvape Helheim RDTA is a versatile, adaptable rebuildable that comes with a single 4.5ml e-juice capacity and has multiple airflow options.

An RTA is a rebuildable tank atomizer, which is like an RDTA but is strictly a tank atomizer, with a glass section, whereas a rebuildable dripping tank atomizer (RDTA) can function both as a vape RDA and an RTA, that’s why RDTA.
Dripping atomizers have small juice wells under their build decks, but no separate tank section to hold e-juice. Users have to remove the top cap while vaping and “drip” e-juice onto their wick and coils whenever the build runs dry.
An RDTA can hold e-juice within its configuration (glass section), so vapers do not have to keep removing the top cap to saturate their coil builds, which is best for some people. So, RDTAs are RDAs with a tank section attached, maybe the best way to describe it. RDTA tanks can either have their glass tank section above or beneath the build deck.
Some RDTAs on this list can switch between the two styles, a “tank” atomizer, and a “dripping” atomizer. The one main thing that vapers need to do to make the switch is to remove the glass section and attach a top cap above the build deck, which is the best and the only way to access the wick and coils.
Why Use an RDTA?
Rebuildable atomizers, in general, offer vapers a 100% customizable vape, just like with regulated mods. First off, though, anyone who wants to vape on a rebuildable atomizer needs to know the following:
Ohms law to determine the ideal resistance of any build
Knowledge of battery capacity and safety
With pre-built coils, like those that come with sub-ohm tanks, pod mods and other e-cig setups, a vaper has limited options to change anything about the coil. They might be best for beginners, but if someone wants a different experience or a different style of vaping, they need to buy new ones to change the entire head.
With other types, vapers cannot change the wicking material, increase the strength or resistance of the coil, or add more coils to the build. The versatility and personalization that all rebuildable atomizers offer are what makes them so popular with certain types of vapers. One other essential reason vapers use RDTAs is for flavor production. RDAs, unlike sub-ohm tanks, do not have a chimney that directs vapor to a mouthpiece when vaping.
The top cap sits directly above the coils, so the vapor goes directly into a vaper’s mouth, which is the best to keep the flavor alive. An RTA and RDA combination blends two styles, maintaining the flavor quality of an RDA, while also offering the convenience of a tank atomizer.
Pros and Cons of Using an RDTA
More e-liquid capacity
Better flavor quality
Can be used as either a tank or a dripping atomizer
They are large in size
More upkeep and maintenance than with RDAs
Many different pieces needed to work than other atomizers
Best RDTA of 2022: The Last Word
Are any of these RDTAs vapes familiar to you? Have you gotten better flavor/performance from any of these units? Are you a dripper or a tank vaper? Would you ever buy or consider using the tanks on this list? Let us know your thoughts in the section below.
RDTAs offer the perfect balance between “dripping” and “tank” atomizers. They use several types of build decks that vapers can also find on RDAs. Only RDTAs come with the added convenience of having a higher e-juice capacity than RDAs, so vapers do not have to keep adding e-juice to their coils manually.
All the units on this list offer the best of both (or several) worlds since some of these units come with BF squonking pins so they can work with those types of mods as well. There are few differences between them, as not all of them can work as RDAs, while others are strictly RDTAs. Some vapers do not see the need to create a single device with both of those qualities and would prefer to use either/or with their mod.
But RDTA tanks are generally very versatile since vapers can change so much about them, from the coils to the e-juice capacity, to the build deck, and even down to something as small as the mouthpiece.
