On paper, an RTA tank sounds like a great idea. But in practice, the VAST majority of RTA tanks are a serious pain to live and work with…. Thankfully, I have FINALLY found some decent RTA tanks that don’t leak…
It took me years to find an RTA tank that doesn’t leak – years!
It got so bad, back in the day, that I started to bloody hate them.
They were fiddly, they never worked properly, they leaked everywhere, they were often impossible to wick correctly, they’d serve up a near-constant stream of dry hits…
Long story short: I just couldn’t seem to find the golden goose: an RTA tank that didn’t leak – and I very nearly gave up.
Basically, by the close of 2017, I’d had enough.
RTA tanks were just far too fiddly for my liking. I enacted a shun on all things RTA.
But In 2018 Things Changed…
Yep. Big time!
I have now used a bunch of RTA tanks that are A) super easy to set up and use, and B) do not leak.
Out of these tanks, I have a few that I think are the best – and these are detailed below.
1) Augvape Intake RTA – My #1 Pick (It Is 100% Leak-Proof)
This is a new one, but a good one.
It has top-mounted airflow, so leaks are, quite literally, impossible.
It’s also super-simple to setup and is very forgiving. Basically, it doesn’t matter if your wicking game isn’t on point.
I spent AGES with this RTA simply because I knew it wouldn’t leak and I could take it anywhere and just not have to worry.
The flavor it kicks out is very impressive and I really like the overall design. Building on the INTAKE is a cinch too; just whack your coils in, wick it, and you’re away.
It’s a well-designed tank that ticks pretty much all my boxes with respect to how an RTA should function.
Why You’d Get The INTAKE RTA
It literally never leaks. Period.
Brilliant, Solid Design
Great Price ($29.99 via VaporDNA)
2) Wotofo Serpent SMM
Suck My Mod’s Serpent RTA is another favorite of mine. Always in circulation, this cracking RTA is a joy to build on and, with the right wicking, it’ll never leak.
I’ve had mine for a good few months now and I have had ZERO trouble with it.
It does whistle quite a bit, though – this is the only downside of this device. Everything else is bangin’.
3) GeekVape Zeus RTA
Like the Intake RTA, the Zeus by GeekVape DOES NOT and WILL NOT leak.
So if that’s all you’re looking for, you’re covered.
But it does WAY more than this. It also delivers truly excellent flavor and looks gorgeous – it’s a proper eye-catching tank and it looks superb on all manner of mods.
The airflow is brilliant as well; it’s smooth and focused and this, when combined with the deck’s engineering, produces some monumental clouds and flavor.
4) Kayfun 5 – The Mac Daddy For Flavor
The Kayfun 5 is the most expensive tank on this list by quite a margin.
At $119, it’s pretty darn expensive.
However, you do get market-leading flavor for that price, as well as the best MTL vaping experience around.
You can also run this tank LOW (and I mean below 20W) and still get an awesome vape, packed full of flavor.
If you wanna run a mod for days on end and vape higher PG E juice/Nic Salts, this is the tank you’ve been waiting for.
I own both the Kayfun Prime and the Kayfun 5, and they’re both excellent options.
Kayfun Too Expensive But You Still Want MTL RTA?
The difference? It’s WAY cheaper – like $80 cheaper!
I have one and I’ve been vaping with it loads recently. The flavor is great and I haven’t had a single leak yet.
If you’re after Kayfun-grade performance and flavor for a fraction of the cost, the Innokin ARES is the one to go for!
