For cloud production, we need plenty of airflow and we need the air fast to mix with the vapor. The tank also needs to be able to supply plenty of juice to the wicks quickly to prevent dry hits when taking successive drags. Here comes to the 5 Best RTAs 2018.
But first, what is RTA?
RTA stands for “rebuildable tank atomizer.” An RTA has somewhat of a similar setup as the RDA, because it is also manually made. The major difference here is that an RTA holds excess liquid in the tank. This takes away the requirement to continuously drip onto the coil. The tank will hold a specific amount of millileters below the build deck. When building your coil and putting the cotton on manually, the cotton must hang down far enough into the tank so that when you tilt the vape mod to vape, the cotton is catching and soaking up some liquid. This style tank normally would be the go-to tank when you first start building your own coils, coming from sub-ohm style tank.
The tank that we are going to pick for clouds need several important factors:
easy to use build deck
chamber that can hold bigger coils
lots of airflow
good juice flow for faster wicking
