Vandy Vape makes A LOT of vape tanks.
In the past few years, the company has grown massively, following the release of multiple, critically acclaimed RTAs, RDAs and squonk mods.
Like SMOK, Vandy Vape is prolific – it pumps out tons of atomizers.
But unlike SMOK, the vast majority of its output is very good quality.
Vandy Vape mainly makes rebuildable atomizers; the bulk of which are RDAs, though there are plenty of RTAs too.
I haven’t tested ALL of them.
That’d be impossible.
But I have tested a pretty significant selection of them during the past couple of years, so I know what’s hot and what’s not in this respect.
And this means I have “my preferred” options – basically, what I recommend to friends and family.
Not ALL Vandy Vape Tanks Are Great…
This is the main reason I put this post together.
Vandy Vape has a solid reputation online, but a few of its RDAs and RTAs aren’t great…
Especially if you’re just starting out with vaping.
For this reason, this list of tanks is based around the following criteria:
- They have to be easy to use (especially the RTAs)
- The best tanks for flavor
- And, finally, they HAVE to be easy to use
Got it? Good. Let’s do this:
Best For Flavor
For flavor, you really cannot go wrong with a rebuildable deck atomizer (AKA: an RDA).
For performance and favor, RDAs are 100% where it’s at. But what is the best Vandy Vape RDA?
For me, it has to be the Pulse 24 RDA – yes, still!
I know this RDA is old, but it is still one of the best straight-up flavor-bangers on the market. Even now, a year after its release.
Why I Like It
- Great Deck, Simple To Build
- Great For Squonking
- Immense Flavor; Super-Precise, Dense & Detailed
- Easy To Wick
- Did I Mention The Flavor?
Best For Squonking
Again, you have multiple options for when it comes to BF RDAs from Vandy Vape, including the new Pulse X RDA.
I’m old-school though.
Once I get something that delivers, I stick with it.
The Pulse 24 RDA is that RDA for me right now.
I will test the Pulse X RDA, but it’d have to do something pretty spectacular to beat the prowess of the Pulse 24 RDA.
Bottomline? If you like flavor and you squonk, get the Pulse 24 RDA.
Best RTA Option?
RTA tanks are tricky beasts. You need to be precise, otherwise you’ll run into problems like leaking and/or dry hits.
Vandy Vape made its name with the Kensei RTA, a tank that needs very little introduction.
But for me, the #1 RTA it makes is the newer Kylin Mini RTA.
As the name suggests, it is a smaller, single-coil version of the original Vandy Vape Kylin RTA.
It features an innovative honeycomb airflow system which ensures buttery smooth vaping and super-intense flavor (as well as thick, dense clouds).
It wicks beautifully, though it isn’t quite as simple to set up as RTAs like the Augvape INTAKE RTA, which is so simple a two year old could wick it.
Once you get your head around the deck though, big rewards await you. The biggest and most significant is the flavor.
I honestly don’t think there is an RTA on the market right now that can match the Kylin Mini RTA for flavor performance.
And that’s it for my two cents on what the #1 Vandy Vape tanks are right now.
It’s not exhaustive, but it is my honest take on its current line up of tanks which includes about 20 options!
To recap, my two picks right now are as follows:
- Pulse 24 RDA – great for squonking; brilliant flavor performance; excellent deck; great value for money
- Kylin Mini RTA – superior flavor; simple to wick, providing you have a little experience; outstanding airflow; excellent build materials and machining.
- Bonza RDA – Created by The Vaping Bogan, this RDA is a massive-hitter that delivers tons of performance. The only thing I don’t like about it is the clamp-system it uses; I just find it too fiddly.
- BSKR MTL RTA – I love MTL vaping and the BSKR MTL RTA is a great little tank for those interested in mouth to lung vaping. I haven’t spent that much time with it, hence the honorable mention. But early indications are very good.
Ones To Avoid
- Capstone RDA – The worst deck I have ever experienced. OK, that’s an exaggeration… but it really isn’t fun to use.
- Mesh RDA – Nice idea, but the RDA produces far too many dry hits. If you want to go the mesh route, you’re 100% better off with the Wotofo PROFILE RDA.
