I have been looking for an RDTA for quite sometime now. I have to admit that dripping when you're out with your friends having a good time can be quite annoying. So, here I was looking for one when I chanced on an Avocado 22 at Vape King in SM Megamall.
It was the last one on stock! So before I went to church, I told the shop keeper that I would come back and purchase it after I go to mass. Seeing probably that I was serious as heart attack, he immediately put it in another case and took it out of the display shelf. Long story short, I went back and bought it.
The Kit Comes with:
- The atomizer
- 1 extra glass tank 3mL capacity
- Ceramic stopper
- Extra screws
- A Hex Key
- Extra O Rings
- 1 Wide Bore tip
- 1 510 type tip
I originally planned to pair it with my VW iStick Pico mod. After several uses though, I noticed that I go through a bottle of e-juice faster than I can say, "What the hell?!?"
- It's easy to build
- The deck has a good juice well that directs extra liquid towards the wick holes thus saturating the cotton thoroughly.
- The wick holes are big enough that it's so easy to put the cotton in it to go down to the tank area.
- The juice tastes better. This is probably because of the ceramic stopper that comes with its air holes making the chamber smaller thus concentrating the flavors better.
- You can choose to either use the tank as reservoir. Meaning you build it like how you would a regular dripping atomizer and just tilting the tank every now and then to saturate the cotton.
- Personally, the juice tastes better that it makes me chain vape a lot.
- Paired with my Pico, I noticed there were times that the mod would not recognize the atomizer. I had to tighten the screws (and I mean all of them) in order for it to be recognized again.
- Quite complicated to take apart. It comes in apart in about 6 parts. The deck, the base, the glass, the top cap, the drip tip, and the cap with the air holes. If you include the ceramic baffle/stopper, that would make it 7. So, it might take a while for you to take it apart and clean it so that you can use a different flavored juice in the tank. You also need to be careful with it because the screws are quite small. You need to make sure that you build it on a plain white cloth to see everything.
While it does take some getting used to, especially for those who are avid users of the much simpler dripping atomizers, getting an Avocado for a back-up RDTA is well worth it. I've been using it now for about a week and I have yet to experience any leaks from it.
