Initial Impressions

Well I’ve skinned a few but never vaped one. The Dead Rabbit V2 is meant to be an upgrade of sorts to the V1. Having never tried the V1 I can’t comment on what’s changed.

The packaging is basic, as are the bits that come with it, but you do get a sticker for your lunch box.

  • Hellvape Dead Rabbit V2 RTA
  • Dead Rabbit Sticker
  • 5ml Bubble Glass
  • Accessory bag inc spare slide top seal
  • Flat head driver
  • Hex Key and Hex Screws
  • User manual

The tank itself looks really good. The one I had been sent is Matte Black and has a Celtic type knurling around the AFC and base, it’s subtle but well machined.

Hell vape Dead Rabbit V2 RTA is the upgraded version of original Dead Rabbit RTA, which is built with precision machining with knurled top cap to create an efficient push style top-fill system for the 5mL maximum juice reservoir.

Upgraded adjustable top side diagonal honeycomb airflow is with a focus on flavour and to minimize leaking.

Measuring 25mm in diameter, it has improved Y style ‘Rabbit Ear’ deck design for cutting coil legs and square post holes for coil installation with ease, supporting both single and dual configurations.

Integrated deck with anti-rotation when screw the cap on make airflow directed to coils for great vaping experience.

Besides, to insulate mod from heat and prevent it from being scratched, Dead Rabbit V2 RTA comes with a PC thermal insulation plate.

It’s a slide top which I’m not overly keen on as the seals tend to wear over time. However, you have a spare seal which is a bonus. It’s a nice smooth motion to slide the cap. There is a kidney shaped filling hole which isn’t the biggest. I found with wider tip bottles the tip would fully go into the hole and made refilling messy.


It’s a top air flow which apparently draws the air diagonally down to the coils and then drags the air through the chimney. I found it a noisy one and to get any sort of restriction on the draw you need to close the AFC by 3\4 to make any difference.

Build and Wicking

I found that cutting the legs to 5mm worked for me, it left a little bit of the legs sticking so there was no need to trim the legs down but you can get some cutters in to trim the legs if needed. I did struggle with the flat head screws so it’s great that they include spare hex screws for the hex screw lovers.

Wicking-wise with this being a top flow it’s very forgiving as you can’t tell if it’s wicked badly because it doesn’t leak which is a trade off with top flow tanks. But as the picture shows I marked the cotton tails with some scissors just in line with the thread of the tank, then I combed the cotton a little and folded the cotton into the wicking ports. My first go was spot on and I got some good air bubbles coming from it.

Dual Build SS Clapton’s 6wraps 3mm ID

Pleasantly surprised it pulled some decent clouds but the flavour was a little lacking. It is, however probably the best flavour I’ve had from a top air flow RDTA. The draw is a little noisy and the drip tip does get warm.

Single Build Clapton 4mm ID 6 wraps

So It claims to be just as good as a single, and I will tell you what…It isn’t. I tried various IDs and they all sucked, flavour was non-existent, it was very airy and very noisy and a pointless venture on my part.

Final Thoughts

I love the look of the tank even the Dead Rabbit logo on the chimney and the knurling which looks and feels great. It’s a well put together tank. It is most definitely the best top air flow RDTA I’ve tried for flavour and to build and wick. It is, however a noisy one and a warm one which will not double up as a single coiler.

Cost In the UK around £24.99
