The Trident RDA clone came fully assembled, with a dual coil and wick already installed, so was ready to vape. For the purpose of this review I removed the ready made coils. And started by stripping it down to its component parts.


The deck comes with a standard 510 connection underneath, it features a copper contact pin, for improved conductivity.

The stainless steel deck consists of 3 posts, one positive centre post, and two negative posts, this allows you the flexibility of build either single or dual coils.
The centre post has a white plastic insulation ring around its base,  to help you avoid shorts when building.

The three posts, all have top nuts/caps with a flat head screw slot in the top. Once these caps are removed it exposes the threaded posts, which have a slot cut through the middle, as opposed to having small holes just drilled through them. So once the wire is placed through and the cap/nut screwed down, will allow excellent contact.

Around the outside of the of the deck, are located two fat o-rings, which ensure that there are no juice leaks once the body is in place.
The outside of the the body of the deck, has a kind of hexagon shape to it, which gives a nice look and feel to it.

RDA Centre Section.

The centre section of the RDA, fits snugly onto the deck, and tightly held in place by the two o-rings. It is best to rub a small amount of juice onto the o-rings when putting it back together, as it is a nice tight fit.

The centre section is made out of pressed stainless steel, with two embossed bands running around it, with some very fine groves cut around the top and bottom, which do assist when gripping the section to remove it from the deck.
The centre section has two 3mm air holes cut into it, on opposing sides. Just slightly off centre between the top and bottom of the centre section.
This centre section will only fit one way up, to the deck, so you just need to check that the air holes are closer to the top. As there is also a slight lip running around the inside, top edge that the top cap pushes down to.

Top Cap.

The stainless steel top cap, has a smooth top, with a wider hexagonal lip running around the top. Under this lip there are two white o-rings, the bottom o-ring lines up perfectly with the embossed ring on the centre section, so works well to hold the top cap lightly in place, whilst the top o-ring creates the seal to prevent any juice leaks.
The top cap also adjusted the air flow to the chamber, there are 6 holes around the top cap ranging from 3mm down to 1mm, and they are grouped around the top cap ring, to not only allow you to set the the desired a flow, but also to configure depending on if you are running single or dual coil.

Drip Tip

The Trident comes with a drip tip which is nice addition, and matches the look perfectly. It has a reduced mouth piece, and feels really nice to vape on.

Aesthetics & Build Quality

I love the barrel design, of this dripper, I think it has some really nice detailing around the centre section, which seems to pull the whole design together. All the sections seem well machined out of good quality food grade stainless steel. The deck and centre section fit together really well, although I did find the top cap a little lite fitting.

The Trident Build.

Once I had removed the pre-fitted coils, I gave the whole dripper a good wash out and dry, which in the case was not needed, as the unit did come sterilises, but it's just habit.


I started off with some 0.28 grade wire, which I wrapped eights around a small ended 4mm screw driver. Once wrapped, and whilst still on the shaft of the screw driver, pushed the whole coil back onto the handle of the screw driver, to concertina the coil together. Then removed it off the screw driver and gave it a good sqeeze with some tweezers. And simply repeated for the second coil.

Setting the coils

On the deck, I started by removing the 3 nuts /caps off the threaded posts, then put the coil back onto the screw driver, and laid it across the deck. Placing the wires through the slots on the posts. Putting the cap on the negative post only, then repeated with the other coil, finally, after a little tweaking you can put the centre posts cap on and tighten all three down. You can then simply adjust the position of the coils, by sliding the screw driver back through them. Once your happy you can 'wiggle' off the excess wire. And the check the ohms, this build read at 0.8ohms on my MVP. You can then attach to you mod, and pulse the coils, tweaking them until you are happy with the way the are glowing.

Wicking the coils.

Next simply pull off two equal sized pieces of organic cotton wool, and roll them between you thumb and fore figure until they are about 3 to 4mm wide. And just thread them through the coils. The trim and fluff.

Lastly you can fit the centre section and juice the wicks up.

Performance & Real World Experience.

As you may have seen I have been using the a dripper for last few weeks for conducting my ejuice reviews, due to the amount of flavour that this dripper seems to bring out in the juice, plus I have found it so easy to swap between juices, by simply pulling the cotton wool back through the coils, and giving the components a quick rinse under the tap, then dry heating the coils, until glowing red hot, to remove any trace of the old flavour.
Then simply re-rolling the cotton wool and re-wicking the existing coil, it literally takes about two minutes,  the coils that you can make following the steps shown in the review seem to last for ages, and it is only the wicks that you need to change out.
I found the build on this dripper really easy and a massive fan of the slots in the posts rather than the small holes to feed the wires through. With the slots you can simple lay your build out and lay the wires through the slots. Trust me a lot easier than holes, or washers.
My only real criticism of the Trident, is that I did found my self having to re-align the air holes, each time took the cap off to drip, as I prefer to drip directly onto the wick, rather than through drip tip hole. And I did find the top cap a little loose. And would be worried about it coming off in my pocket. But I do feel that I find myself dripping really at home in the evening, or when reviewing juices, so don't really think the top cap being loose would be a problem.


I would 100% recommend the Trident rebuildable dripper, I find it gives great level of detail in the flavour, a great variation in the level of air flow you can set it to, which assists in producing loads of lush vapor. Combine all this with the fact that it is really easy to build on, and simple to change out the wick, in my mind makes it the vapor best friend. Perfect as a first rebuildable dripper, for someone looking at trying their hand at building there own coils and wicks, due to the removable chamber wall, which gives really ease access to the deck, and helps build confidence whist building.
