RDA’s vs. Tanks

Lets take a look at RDA’s vs. Tanks. Every since vaping became a thing and tanks and rda’s were around, people have been leaning one way or the other. They both are great and have their pro’s and cons.

Rda’s stands for Rebuildable deck Atomizer. You replace the actual wire coils and cotton. You can make tons of different coils and build massive clouds. You can use an unregulated device or a regulated device, both work great. Be careful and know how to builds and follow the build tutorials I have, so you do not burn your cotton. Also know, how low ohms your battery can take.

The flavor on RDA’s is the best hands down.  You’ll alway get bigger clouds with a RDA because you can build your own coils, wick the coils, and adjust the airflow to be right on the coils.

RDA's vs. Tanks Tank


Tanks are pretty great if you like not having to drip. My first vape was a Ego AIO with a build in tank. Tanks are great for the people who do not want to just vape. They are easy and perfect for going an everyday vape. Lets face it, Dripping all the time is not the most practical.  So, if you want a very practical vape, then get a tank.

You can rebuild coils on tanks, but it a lot of work and replacement coils are really cheap.

The clounds can be big, but will never be as big as a really good RDA build.

Macro Coil Build

This Macro Coil Build is my all time favorite build. It’s very very very simple and it blows huge clouds.  Just make sure your battery can handle this build. This macro coil build is so simple anyone can do it.

Macro Coil Build 2

All is used was 24 gauge nichrome wire, wire cutter, a 7/64 drill bit “for rapping the coils”, pliers, and a small screw driver.

I cut off about a foot of 24 gauge Nichrome wire and staightened it out with a drill. I use a drill because it gets really straight and I feel like it makes it stiffer.

Macro Coil Build 3

I did 4 wraps, but did not count the first wrap. I normally do not use the first wrap in single strand wire builds, because it is never as straight as I want.

Macro Coil Build 4
work out the hot spots

I had some bad hot spots on this build because all the coils were touching. I use some wire cutters to separate the coils just a little bit.

Macro Coil Build

After I got out all the hot spots, I just put 100% organic cotton in the middle of the coils.

Macro Coil Build

Even though this is a single strand build, It still chucks massive clouds. This build came out exactly the way I wanted it to, which is to have a simple build create big clouds. All in all, this build is one that anyone can do plus it makes clouds that a massive.

Vape safe my friends!!!

This Stove Top Coil is one of the most flavorful vapes out there. It’s reading at .18 ohms, so use a high drain battery.

I used 24 awg nichrome wire, a 3/32  drill bit, and wire cutters. I ended up using a screwdriver that was the same size as the 3/32 drill bit. And I also used 100% Japanese cotton, as always.

Start wrapping the coils, but wrap them on top of each other. Be careful, It’s really easy to not wrap the wraps on top of each other. I did 5 wraps per coils.

Work out the hot spots and put cotton below the coils. Then when you cotton on the sides of the lead post, when you install the Rda.

This Stove Top Coil- Vape Coil is a really warm vape. Be really care and have a good battery, so it does not blow up. The Stove Top Coil is a lot more vapable when the coils glaze over after a few hours.Thanks for reading about this Stove Top Coil- Vape Coil part 2

My Vape Set Up

Right now, my vape set up is my favorite. It is a Kanger DripMod and RDA running at .22 ohms. It is 24 gauge kanthal wire and I have 100% Japanese cotton on these bad boys.

My Vape Set Up

The battery is a Samsung 25r and it has worked for my coil builds so far. I always calculate my builds and make sure my battery can handle it.


I prefer RDA’s over tanks. The flavor is so much better and I get bigger clouds. Do not get me wrong, tanks are great for everyday use, but you cannot go wrong with an RDA and mechanical Mod.

Thanks for reading and see you guys soon!



I’m Mack and I just started this blog. It’s going to be all about vaping and getting people of the coffin nails. I’m going to try and post several times a week, but sometimes life gets in the way. So let’s get ready to blow some clouds.
