Things to ask yourself before you ask "Which RDA?"
We see a lot of people asking "Which RDA should I get?" or "What's the best Dripper?". Before you do this, can I suggest you ask yourself the following questions and include your preferences in your post - this will help ensure that the recommendations other members give you might actually suit you!

Draw - do you like a tight draw or do you want massive airflow? If you want the draw adjustable do you want "tight to massive" or a less total range?

Mouth to lung or Lung inhale? - do you mainly do one or the other or do you want something that will do both?

Flavour or Clouds - not an absolute trade off, but people will need to know what matters most to you

Power - will you mainly be vaping at modest watts or might you be using a 200w monster box? Will you be wanting to do modest ohmage, mild subohming, or radical subohming? Will you be using a regulated device or a mech?

Size - nowadays most drippers are 22mm but do you want something bigger or smaller?

Coils - single, dual or multiple? Regular coils or BIG ones?

Experience and ease of use/build - if you are new to RDAs, have butterfingers, are cackhanded or have fists like hams, you will probably want to tell people this...

Budget - even authentic RDAs come in a very wide range of prices!

I won't slave for beggar's pay,
likewise gold and jewels,
but I would slave to learn the way
to sink your ship of fools

RE: Things to ask yourself before you ask "Which RDA?"
This seems obvious, but is really good advice. I am sure that if I had asked these questions first, I might have saved myself some disappointment. We live and learn...

RE: Things to ask yourself before you ask
With so many RBTDAetc on the market, how about a (sorry mods) thread for every RBTDAetc with a pic or two (open and closed), and a brief synopsis? Click to user opinion? Poll for +\- points from users? Leaky tight draw flavour lung hit thirst mouth to lung dribble recommended after two weeks use type stuff? would maybe save on samey questions?

RE: Things to ask yourself before you ask "Which RDA?"
there probably are threads on most rta/rda's ,thats where the search function of the forum is invaluable ,as time progresses threads get buried in a mass of other questions

Precisely, CC. One topic to cover all. First owner of the latest and greatest...? Start the thread! Need info..? Check the topic menu. Users add info, non ad hominem.
Rather than pointless to-ing and fro-ing with suggestions of kit, the bloke/blokette could be merely steered to a constantly updated, and updating, database.

RE: Things to ask yourself before you ask "Which RDA?"
its a great idea,but man ,that is a very big task ,it would also take a lot of setting up ,as forums go ,many threads go way off topic ,it would be a moderating nightmare too

RE: Things to ask yourself before you ask "Which RDA?"
With all the atties I have bought so far (which is substantial). The Derringer is by far the easiest, tastiest rda I have ever used. I would recommend this dripper every time.
