RE: RTA or RDA? Many questions
I would suggest you go for an RTA. Once you master its wicking (believe me, each one of them needs some time to be mastered), you will have no issues with leaking and can be used fine when out and about. I am an MTL vaper and I use the likes of Tilemahos, Phenomenon, Kayfuns all the time with no issues at all. In fact, I don't own any non-rebuildable tanks.

I wouldn't go for an RDA for use out of home. I tried it for a while and despite the fact that the flavour you get is far more superior compared to most RTA's, it is very annoying to have to drip every 20-30 draws.

Decided to go with the Serpent mini 22.

Can't argue at that price.

As a total noob to building are there any other essentials you would recommend I get In addition to the tank?

Thanks so much for all the help people's.

Nice choice!
Extras: ceramic tipped tweezers, flush side cutting wire cutters, cotton! lots of cotton!
Spare coils or resistance wire and a coil making jig, an Ohm meter can come in handy too.

RE: RTA or RDA? Many questions
I've seen the jigs in a local shop. Looks a lot easier than buggering about wrapping wire around screw drivers and such.

I have an Ohm meter already. As I understand it, I need to get a device that fires the coils before I can use them on my mod?

I'm sure everyone has their own personal preference for wire but are there any that should be avoided when starting out?

You're fine with just your Ohm meter.

I just picked one of these up as my old cheapo ohm meter gave up the ghost, it's not bad at all, and much cheaper than other firing meters.

I tried a coiling jig once and promptly launched it into the bin.

good cheap wire snips:- https://www.fasttech.com/p/1243300

good cheap ceramic tweezers:- https://www.fasttech.com/p/4471906

i use this cotton mostly:- https://www.fasttech.com/products/3033/10014673/2675500

UD do good wire - all sorts of sizes and materials. i'd recommend sticking with kanthal to start off - here's some clapton wire... https://www.fasttech.com/products/3033/10014903/4259100

Thanks very much for the great advice. Can't believe I've managed to get so much great kit for so little money.
