What Are The Best RTA Vape Tanks To Buy In 2020?

A rebuildable tank atomiser, or RTA, is a special kind of rebuildable atomiser. Like all rebuildable atomisers they require you to build and mount your own coils, as such they are only recommended for advanced vapers. They combine the cloud and flavour producing abilities of a rebuildable atomiser, but with the e-liquid capacity of a standard vape tank, proving to be popular amongst advanced vapers who still like the aspect of refilling.

Sitting inside each tank is a build deck where a coil is fitted. This coil is covered by a chimney housing, which not only stops the coil from flooding but it concentrates the flow of vapour. A steady source of e-liquid is fed to the coil by a cotton wick, which you make yourself. If you’d like to know on How To Install and Use Premade Coils properly, check out our guide.

There are different RTAs to suit different vaping styles, from the single-coil Mouth To Lung models all the way to the multi-coil RTAs that produce large amounts of vapour. To help you find one that’s best for you, we’ve put together this list of the top 5 RTAs for 2020.

The Zeus X Mesh gets our top spot because it offers everything an RTA should, easy refilling, a sleek design and of course improved vapour production. Featuring a unique clamp deck which utilises modern ceramic technology, it uses specially created mesh rebuildable coils. This mesh design allows more e-liquid to be heated at a faster rate, for both improved flavour and vapour production. It also means you’ll never have to cut and create your own coils for this RTA, cutting out some of the main maintenance hassle of RTA vaping. 

The interior chamber of the Zeus X features a honeycomb airflow structure which reduces the chance of spit back, it sits directly above your coil so the vapour is channelled through the body of the RTA directly. Top adjustable airflow has been chosen as it allows for a warmer vape which in turn improves the flavour.
