RDAs consume more liquid?
« on: March 13, 2014, 05:49:11 PM »

So, I am a bit curious about RDAs. RDAs consume more liquid compared to genesis and silica attys? Using cottos makes any difference?
I know that the coil build matters a lot.

efficiency is relative to consumption ...

therefore, if you have a well wicked ample coil, then you'll power through e-liquid at a rate.

I understand... It's just I have no idea how much liquid I would use in a RDA compared to a RBA.
Can you give me an example? Like in your own experience.

you'll use the same - liquid vaporises.

10ml of juice will produce  how ever many litres of steam/vapour - the viability of that vapour is down to the user.

an RDA will use precisely the same amount of e-liquid as a genesis - how efficient that vapour is, is down to you.

the markable difference is in how much each vessel can hold - an RDA, typically between half of one up to perhaps one full millilitre - wheras an RTA will likely hold anywhere upward from 2 millilitre

the two devices, if wound and wicked identically, would perform - identically

I see, that makes sense!

I asked because I am watching a lot of videos of RiP Trippers. He always make nano coils ad use RDAs. Always a lot of vapour. That makes me curious.

Yeah I noticed that the vessel of RDAs are really small compared to RBAs. I thought that in the end of the day a RDA would consume more liquid because You have do drip liquid constantly.


Sorry about the anglish and for booring you ):

you are fine --- 8)

an example - i vape somewhere in the region of 10 ml per day - if i use a genny with 2ml capacity, i will find i have to refill 5 times throughout the day.

if i use an alternative atomiser, say with 5ml capacity, i will refill twice throughout the day.

if i use a dripping atomiser, i will refill many many times as per its limitation being under 1ml.

10ml per day - the vessel has only temporary baring.


boil some water - first in a kettle it will hold about 2 litre - it might take 10 hours to boil the kettle dry.

now boil 200ml of water, but on a plate - it might take 1 hour to boil until dry.

200ml x 1 hour = 2 litre per 10 hour

I got it! Thanks mate!

Also, 10ml per day isn't too much? haha
I will use the EVOD first. It hold 1.5 ml. I think I will use at max 3.0 ml per day. Seeing in that way, yeah, makes sense that you use 10ml a day, considering that genny or silica attys will have a bigger and stronger coil and bigger vessel.

Great exemples!  ;D ;D ;D

10ml is my rough average - mostly a little less, some days maybe a little more.

i think average for everyone combined is more like 3.5 - 5 ml - :)

I tend to use more juice whilst dripping. Normally I tank between 7-10 ml/day but today ive been dripping a lot. Gone through 10 ml of homebrewed tiggers blud on the dripper,  about  3.5 ml menthol ice through a vivi nova and maybe 1.5 ml absinthe in the kraken.
 Could be the pg/vg ratio has a bearing on this,
my tiggers blud is 100% pg (homebrew)
menthol ice is LF premixed (think its 100%pg)
absinthe is 25/75 pg/vg (homebrew)
 or maybe its just me being greedy today, who knows?

Thanks!  ;D

So, I will buy some materials for my EVOD (and RBA in the future).
I don't know what kanthal I will buy. I am thinking of the 28 Gauge kanthal.
http://www.vape-atomizer-mesh.com/products/Kanthal-A1-Heat-Resistance-Wire---0.3mm--300-Micron-or--28-AWG----10-Metre-Spool-2435.html

But Stewrat sent me the flat kanthal http://www.vape-atomizer-mesh.com/products/kanthal-a1-ribbon-heat-resistance-Wire--03mm-01mm-10metre-2343.html

I am just curious - and im not saying that he say wrong - he's an amazing guy, he helped me A LOT! (:

So, what is the main difference between them? For building the EVOD coil heads and other RBAs in the future...

What kanthal do you use?

100% pg?! Isn't that way too thin?

I wish I had a Kraken.  :( In the future I will!  :P

you'll probably find it easier to use the rounded stuff in the evod - mainly as it uses up slightly less in the way of room

ultimately, you'll use whichever one works best for you - many of us only ever used 0.20mm when we began on the re-buildable atomisers. mainly as that was the only wire available to us.
