Look and Feel

Upon the first glance at the Moonshot 24 RTA, you can see that the unit is very well made and that all the parts fit perfectly together. The AFC ring presents the perfect amount of resistance and is easily adjustable, yet it stays exactly where it is after adjusting. The threading is smooth, and the outside is very attractive. Because of its transparent design, the tank looks amazing with any style and color of the mod.

Filling Your Moonshot 24 RTA

Sigelei Moonshot 24 RTA Filling Review

The device is very easy to fill, as it has two big top fill holes. With the 2ml capacity – which isn’t the biggest – it doesn’t need juice flow control, which is great if you plan on filling the device often.

The Huge Airflow

The Moonshot 24 RTA provides a huge airflow and won’t disappoint when the user who prefers a direct to lung device. The large airflow control ring slots feed 5mm air holes beneath each of the coils. The chimney stem’s large diameter helps with the airflow so that it won’t choke it off. It’s amazing how you can customize your overall vaping experience by simply adjusting the airflow.

It’s All About the Flavor

Because the 3.5mm diameter coils offer plenty of wick to fill the 3mm wick slots, it adequately covers the juice holes in the chimney. On top of that, the customizable airflow ensures the Sigelei Moonshot 24 RTA certainly doesn’t disappoint when it comes to flavor.

Sigelei Moonshot 24 RTA General Performance

Once built and wicked, the Moonshot provides unbelievable clouds. The wide-bore competition drip tip can cause a bit of ‘’spitback’’ now and then, but it is easy to correct by simply adjusting the airflow and wattage. When paired with a high-power mod, the tank can get a bit warm, but the airflow and advanced technology allow for quick cooling.

The vapor is smooth, and the flavor comes very close to what you might get when using an RDA device. Some users might complain about the tank size, but on the bright side, it is easy to refill, and it produces better flavor than a larger tank would have done.

Comparing Devices

The Moonshot 24 RTA has a unique aesthetic to it and boasts a compact design. It does have a similar build process to some other, more expensive RTAs in the same class – the deck removes from the base and is secured by the vapor chamber center barrel.

It sounds easier than it is, so expect to take some time when building the device. When you’re done, you will have one of the most powerful RTA systems on the market, which is easier to maintain and more customizable than most of its competitors.

Cleaning the Device

The best recommendation is to take the device 100% apart and cleaning it with hot water and dish soap. Alternately you can use rubbing alcohol and cotton swabs.

Paper clips are excellent to poke through the air slots to make sure that any residue is removed. Remember to rinse properly after cleaning, so there’s no soapy smell. Leave the parts to dry before reassembling.

Before the First Use

The Moonshot 24 RTA is an advanced user item. Always follow the instructions carefully and assemble using proper precautions and handling. Make sure that your Moonshot 24 is compatible with your set-up, which doesn’t include a hybrid or hybrid style device. Never use a short or flat 510 connection on such a device.
