Let’s start the new year with a brand new RDA. Products from Digiflavor are always full of expectations, especially the release of RDA. In the case of many products of the same series with different designs and functions on the market, Digiflavor can still stand out among them. So what is the unique part that can make it stand at the front end of the RDA market for a long time? This is inseparable from Digiflavor’s unique design concept and continuous innovation and advancement of technology.
Every time Digiflavor‘s new product can whet people’s appetite, because you can’t imagine what kind of visual feast it is. The same is true for this new release. The whole body of Drop RDA V2 is made of metal. Instead of the smooth surface that tends to look cheap, it adopts a matte texture. With various colors, you will be pleasantly surprised. Compared with the previous version, I prefer the current shape, which reveals a very strong brand style in a low-key way.
The shape of Digiflavor Drop RDA V2 is a metal body like a space capsule. This is an RDA equipped with a double coil, which can provide unimaginably awesome DL Vape Mode and RDL Vape Mode. Inside the unit, there’s a two-post build plate with four oversized holes that will accommodate nearly every size coil you can think of. The airflow enters from the slots on both sides of the Digiflavor Drop RDA V2 without obstruction, and can directly enter the interior of the device, maximizing the production of pure and delicious flavor.
We start by updating the Wotofo brand, which has breathed new life into the Recurve line with renowned Western critic Mike Vapes. I suggest, without further ado, start introducing the Wotofo Recurve V2 RDA.
Body material: stainless steel
Atomizer type: RDA vape
Height: 35.5mm with drip tip and connector
Connector: 510, pin gold plated
We started out with the traditional look and immediately noticed the familiar corporate design. The fit can be tracked anywhere – from the skirt, all the way to the top cap, to the drip tip. On the sidewall, there is a longitudinal groove for the logo and air intake.
The dimensions are arguably standard, but fans of the brand obviously won’t appreciate the non-standard landing diameter. The line starts with a set of six almost standard colors.
The drip tip is traditionally unpretentious, and now there is no additional piece in the kit. The last one is made of plastic, the landing is naturally 810th.
The air supply channels are made inside a removable plastic insert, which not only “brings” these flows to the coils, but also directs them at a certain angle of attack. This part also sits rigidly on the base thanks to the keys.
Moreover, the Wotofo kit provides two options at once – for single-coil and double-coil use of the drip. I remember that the latter works very well. There is enough space for laying cotton wool, despite the massive internal structure of the deck.
Recently I’ve been doing some squonk vaping. Thereupon, I found some good pairs of squonk mods and RDAs. Today I’gonna share one.
Firstly let’s look at the Vandy Vape Bonza V1.5 RDA. It is 24mm in diameter and is 38mm tall from drip tip to the base of the contact point. This upgraded version of the Bonza has a dual post, quad terminal style build deck with top mounted slotted Phillips screws; additional Flathead screws are included in the accessories pack. Inner terminals of the build deck feature a revamped clamp system with expanded 5mm by 5.9mm by 2mm clamps with knurled patterning for enhanced for coil lead grip. The new Phillips screws have reduced threading to allow for a more convenient building experience. The stainless steel build deck has a raised build deck and recessed 9mm juice well.
Vandy Vape has modified the airflow adjustment of the Bonza to allow more precise control. They have retained the 15 air hole per side design but has moved on from the slotted top cap to a new segmented airflow control that allows the user to cover a single 1mm air hole at a time. The Vandy Vape Bonza V1.5 has a pre-installed gold plated 510 contact and a spare squonk pin. Included in this package is a pre-installed 8mm wide 810 bore resin drip tip, a spare 8mm wide 810 Delrin drip tip, and a 510 drip tip adapter. The Vandy Vape Bonza V1.5 24mm RDA is a redesigned atomizer with modifications made with an improved user experience in mind.
The matched squonk mod is DOVPO Topside Mod. It is made in collaboration with The Vapor Chronicles, deploying the first top-fill squonk mod design with 10mL max capacity, single 21700 platform, and an intelligent chipset with BYPASS and optional Temperature Control. The construction of Zinc Alloy and Aluminum Alloy makes it moderately impact-resistant in an ergonomic shape, with parts that have contact with eLiquid are made from food-grade Stainless Steel and silicone.
The Topside has a single battery bay for a high-amp 21700 battery (sold separately) while leaving space for a 10mL squonk bottle adjacent for today’s popular eJuice. Within the unit, the squonk bottle can be filled from the top, after unscrewing a knurled and threaded top cap. The squonking action on the Topside mod is found the opposite of the firing button and display face and is made from food-grade silicone for a truly unique design. The leak-resistant 510 base is useful that it will not allow juice within the internals. Furthermore, the 510 base is gold-plated and spring-loaded for the best possible conductivity.Squonk
When the pod system products occupied the market is a foregone conclusion, some designers have returned to the design idea of pursuing a small mouth-feeling smoke. Today we will make a comparison evaluation about such two RDAs which pursue mouth-feeling.
The first one is Digiflavor DROP SOLO RDA, which has a 22mm diameter, through a 24mm decorative ring allows the atomizer to be perfectly matched to a 24mm diameter mechanical vape pen. Moreover, the 5mm deep e-juice well provides an extremely practical experience for this RDA, which is extended by the side air intake design of the atomizer. Whether at the top filling blindly or bottom filling by squeezing, a deep enough well provides sufficient short-term retention space before the e-juice is sucked into the cotton.
The mouth-feeling of this DROP SOLO RDA is described in a word that is rich, and the addition of a word is smooth. Generally speaking, rich and smooth cannot be owned at the same time. After using for a period of time, in addition to the condensate accumulated in the vicinity of the tip drip needs to be cleaned regularly, this DROP SOLO RDA does not seem to have obvious problems.
The second one is Geekvape loop V1.5 RDA, which is an updated version of the Loop RDA, and many will be interested if it’s been improved and if so in what way. Firstly let’s see its appearance, the sleeve has some really well machined fine engraving on the top and bottom thirds, the centre third is a smooth move-able band which has “LOOP” engraved on the front and the other 3 sides have sets of 7 vertical airflow slits that are small towards the outsides of the 7’s then increase in size towards the center.
About the Loop V1.5’s performance. The design of the airflow does mean with a reasonable amount of care leaking while squonking isn’t an issue. If the flavor was an issue with the original Loop (no idea if that was the case) then this will not just be an improvement but a massive improvement as I found the flavor with the Loop V1.5 excellent.
