This RDA (Rebuildable Dripper Atomizer) was supplied by the kind team at Mech Mode for the purpose of this build and review.
This build and review was always going to be a bit tricky, due to the technical nature of the RDA deck allowing you to run four coils, and my lack of experience in building such a set up. So I passed the technical part of the build to my hawk eyed friend Kevin Chater, from Smokey Joes and the Facebook Rugby Vapor Lounge, who kindly agreed to build the coils and wick them for me. This allowed you to see the true potential of this wicked little RDA.
This dripper has a stainless Steele construction, with a hour glass shaped top cap, which has a hole
at the top which will fit a standard removal drip tip.
The top cap has two 3.8ml elongated holes on each side, which when the top cap is in place can be used to adjust the air flow, by lining them up over the two 2ml holes located on each side of the deck. By turning a adjusting how the holes line up, you can fine tune the air follow over the coils.
The Raid-A deck has a standard 510 connection. And five coil posts, which can allow, as Kevin did with this build, set up four coils, or run dual coils opposite to each other, which would then be nicely located in front of each air holes on each of the opposite sides. The posts are set with one slightly taller positive post in the middle surrounded by 4 negative posts. Each post has a small hole in the side of it to allow you to feed the coil wire through. On the
top of each post you have a small Philips screw to hold the coil in place.
When set up weights in a 40g. Has a diameter of 22mm and a top to bottom length of 31 mm. So it is a nice compact size.
The RAID-A as a quad build wasn't the easiest as I found there wasn't much space in between
each post, so I decided to build vertical coils.
I used a 2mm drill bit and used 10 wraps of 32 gauge kanthal. Standing the drill bit vertically in the gap and using tweezers to get the wire into each hole. Once I had done each one I very carefully tightened each screw down and checked they were all secure an the coils weren't touching the positive or negative posts.
I used my maraxus mech mod to fire all the coils to make sure they worked an heated from the inside out. I decided to use organic cotton for ease on wicking. Using a 0 nicotine jucie 80pg 20vg jucied the cotton and fired the dripper up.
When set up with the quad coil, this dripper works like a steam train, and produced tonnes of vapor (as seen in the video) with lots of strong flavour, and it is really nice being able to adjust the air flow to get the vapor production just right.
Great rebuildable dripper, with great adjustable airflow. With a multitude of coil set ups, from single
coil all the way up to quad coil. I would say the this style of RDA is for the more experienced builder, due to the size of the deck, and number of posts.
