IntoductionThis rebuildable dripping Atomiser was sent to me for the purpose of this review from the kind team at eBuzzcigs, from their range of RDA’s
It is described on the eBuzzcigs website as follows:
“The TOBH Atty clone is a stunning state of the art product that is quite simply one of the best rebuildable three post drippers on the market. It has excellent air flow and an ingenious removable top cap design which makes dripping so much easier. The well on the Atty is deep which acts as a reservoir allowing more time between dripping”
Presentation.The TOBH Atty Clone, came in a nice little presentation box, with a window in to allow you to get a sneaky peak at what's inside. It comes complete with and complete spares kits, including o-rings and spare screws.

The TOBH RDA comes fully assembled and unwicked. For the purpose for this review I will start by breaking it down into its component parts.
The Deck.The TOBH deck comes with a standard 510 connection, with an adjustable brass pin, with a flat end screw driver slot in the bottom for adjustment. This centre pin is what holds the positive post in place. So you must ensure that when you get it out of the box you check that it is nice and tight, before you start the build, or you will have a wobbly centre post.
Around the 510 connection underneath the deck you have “TOBH Mods, V1, 2014 and 171” laser etched into the base plate.
The deck has around a 5mm lip running around it with two raised 8mm sections of the side wall 4mm wide, that are used to control the air-flow. This raised lip has two o-rings which hold the chamber in place.
The deck has 3 posts, two negative posts and one centre post that is 3mm taller set in the moddle. Each post has a 2mm hole through the side of it to allow you to feed the coil tails, again the centre post hole is set 3mm higher than the two negative posts. To allow you to set the top tail of the coil in place whilst still keeping the coil level, without having to kink it, or if the coils are reserved, allows you to angle them downwards towards the deck, again with kinks.
Each post has a small philips securing screw in the top, to hold the coils in place.
The deck is well machined and gives plenty of space to set the coils, and a nice deep drip well.
ChamberThe TOBH Atty, has a simply stainless steel tubular chamber.19mm tall, with 1mm thick walls.
Set about 5.5mm up from the bottom on each side you have 3, 2mm holes drilled out on opposite sides. On the front of the chamber you have the Atty logo, laser etched into the side.
The bottom edge of the chamber wall has a slight lip on it to allow it to fit flushly over the deck, creating a tight seal.
Top CapThe Top cap on the TOBH Atty is what gives it it's distinct looks, and makes it stand out from the crowd.
From the out side, it has a flat, well machined top. With the standard 510 hole for you drip tip.
The top section of the top cap is made up of the four heat-sink fins, which are cut deep into the top cap, all they way through to about the width of the 510 drip tip.
The bottom half of the top cap is recessed in slightly, to fit inside the chamber, and is fitted with a single o-ring to hold it in place when fitted.
AESTHETICS & BUILD QUALITYThe TOBH Atty clone is very well made, with a high level of machining. All of the engravings are to a very high standard. And it just fits together so well, the middle chamber just seems to snap into place, and held there tightly by the o-rings. The top cap, fits perfectly, with just the right amount of resistance to hold it in place, but can be easily removed, without completely taking it all apart.
The TOBH has a great look with its heat sink fins on the top cap, and stylish laser etched logo.
The only negative I could find in relation to the build quality, is the fact that the centre positive post seems to be held in place by the contact pin in the connector, and can become loose. And out of align. You then loose the ability to adjust the centre pin, as it has to stay tight at all times.
But as long as you remember to check it is tight, there is no problem.
The TOBH build.The TOBH was easy to set up with standard dual coils, and cotton wicks. But although very easy to build on it did take a few attempts to master, to ensure that the coils where in exactly to right place, and height of the deck.
The wicking the I found worked best was, to use a medium amount of organic cotton wool, pulled through the coils, with one end of each tucked under the coil, so the coil ends up sitting on a bed of cotton, and the other end fluffed up a little a pushed down Into the well, to suck up the juice.
You can then simple push the chamber firmly if place lining up the air holes next to each of the coils.
PERFORMANCE & REAL WORLD EXPERIENCEI have been using the dripper for the last few weeks, and as I stated it was really easy to build on and set up, but seemed to to a while to master, with a little bit a tweaking on the coils and with the cotton. I did find that if the cotton was not set just right, it would interfere with the air flow. And if the coils were set to low, you would not get as much vapor. But I do believe that this is what drippers and rebuildable atomiser are all about. The fact that the do take a little bit of mastering to get right, but once mastered give a great satisfying vape. As does the TOBH Atty.
The airflow is great, allowing you to set it fully open, or by twisting the chamber slightly in front of the pillar, you can reduce it down as desired.
The cone shed top cap seems to some how intensify the flavour.
When you have it running on full air flow, this thing produces a great amount of warm vapor. With loads of flavour.
I love the fact that you can fit the chamber set your airflow, and leave it alone, you simply pull off the top cap, using the fins as grips. And drip away, without having to reset or re-align the air holes, as you do with some drippers. Plus you get great access for dripping the juice directly onto the wicks. Less mess more vaping.
RECOMMENDATIONThis is a great little rebuildable dripping atomiser, well machined that fits together perfectly, and looks great on any mod.
A joy to use, and produces lots of flavour sum vapor.
Defiantly one to be adding to your collection.
