An atomizer is the component of an electronic cigarette that makes contact with the battery, which heats the coil which ultimately vaporizes the e-juice. Vapor Authority offers a wide selection of atomizers, including Rebuildable Dripping Atomizers (RDAs) and Rebuildable Tank Atomizers (RTAs) for advanced vapers. Regardless of the type of rebuildable atomizer you are looking for, Vapor Authority is sure to have several choices to serve your needs.
RDA: The acronym "RDA" stands for Rebuildable Dripping Atomizer. These are devices that contain a building deck, positive and negative connector posts, chimneys, and bases. The user will build coils and connect them to the posts in order to allow for the coils to heat up from the power fed to it by the battery. Some filament material, such as cotton is then intertwined with the coils. The wick or cotton will absorb the e-juice and feed it to the coils. The RDA is then connected to a battery, and when activated, the battery will heat the coil causing the e-liquid that has been absorbed by the filament material to vaporize. When all of the e-liquid has been consumed, the user will then "drip" more e-juice onto the cotton or wick--hence the term Rebuildable Dripping Atomizer.
RTA: The acronym “RTA” stands for “Rebuildable Tank Atomizer.” An RTA is essentially a hybrid between an RDA and a clearomizer. That is, a rebuildable tank atomizer contains a deck on which you can build your own custom atomizer coils. The deck portion of an RTA functions identically to rebuildable dripping atomizers. However, similar to a clearomizer, an RTA is furnished with an e-juice reservoir (tank) that will continuously feed e-liquid to the coils. This makes building easier, as you are not forced to continuously drip e-juice onto the wick.
RBA: The acronym “RBA” stands for “Rebuildable Atomizer.” This term is used to encompass both rebuildable dripping atomizer and rebuildable tank atomizers. In other words, and RTA and RDA are both RBAs.
Dripping Atomizers: Electronic cigarette dripping atomizers, such as Boge 510 Dripping Atomizers, are basic atomizer units that allow you to drip a few drops of e-liquid into them in order to taste the e-juice flavor. It is a wonderful, inexpensive, and convenient way to be able to taste several e-liquid flavors without having to fill up an entire tank.
