What the mean of Electronic cigarette atomizer by RBA, RDA, RTA, RDTA?


The DIY atomizer has a different name. So far, four of them are commonly used. Each abbreviation begins with the letter "R", which means "rebuild - rebuild". Next, I'll expand the four "reconfigurable" abbreviations to see what they mean:

What is RBA?

RBA is the abbreviation of rebuildable atomizer, which we usually call DIY atomizer. It represents the general name of all atomizers with heating wire electrode base. Users can install their own coils and cotton on them (called "builds build"). Any atomizer with a build suite, including the more detailed subcategories below, can be called RBA.

What is RDA?

RDA is the abbreviation of rebuildable driving atomizer - rebuildable drip atomizer, which we usually call "drip atomizer" or "drip atomizer". The utility model relates to an RBA with an electrode base, which can fix the coil and make the coil energized to heat the coil. There is an outer cover on the base, which is connected with the base by thread or rubber ring. RDA does not have an oil bin to store the oil. It is designed to drip oil directly from the top to the coil or cotton (usually by removing the top cover or dropping directly from the drip nozzle). RDA relies on cotton for oil storage, usually less than 1ml.

It is generally believed that RDA can produce purer and stronger flavor than other types of atomizers. Therefore, RDA represents a gold standard for measuring other atomizers.

RDA can produce very large smoke, especially when equipped with ultra-low resistance (0.05-0.2 Ω) filament and driven by high power (100 + W). A very typical example is when used on a mechanical pole without any voltage regulating circuit. In fact, RDA is the star of smog competitions held all over the world.

What is RTA?

RTA is the abbreviation of rebuildable tank atomizer, which we usually call "oil atomizer" or "oil storage". The invention relates to a DIY atomizer, which is provided with an electrode base wrapped by a metal bin, and an oil storage bin for containing the smoke and oil is arranged outside. The top cover is connected to the central airway, which leads up to the drip nozzle. Gravity and pressure will force the soot into the oil guide hole under the middle metal bin, and the end of the oil guide cotton will absorb oil at the oil guide hole. When the kerosene of the oil guide cotton is saturated, the heating coil can be atomized.

The difference between RDA and RTA is oil storage. RTA does not need to drip oil manually.

What is RDTA?

Rdta is the abbreviation of rebuildable driving tank - rebuildable oil drop atomizer, which is the most confusing one among several categories.

Three years ago, as shown in the above figure, rdta is an RTA (Reconfigurable oil storage atomizer) with base, electrode column, top cover and oil bin, as well as an additional component (such as a spring oil pump operated by pressing the drip nozzle), which allows the user to manually control the amount of smoke and oil flowing to the oil guide cotton. A certain amount of smoke oil will be added to the oil guide cotton every time the drip nozzle is pressed.

Another name for these early rdtas was "automatic drip atomizer.". This looks strange because the spring pump is manually operated, but the "automatic" part means that it does not have to stop and open the top cover to drip oil. It is "automatic" when dropping oil, which is very convenient, but it is manual automation.

Those early rdta are the rarest types of DIY atomizers, for a reason. Their design is complex and their reliability is often poor. Even if they work normally, no matter how convenient they are, they are usually covered by their complexity and instability. In essence, they are not easy to use. As of 2016. only a few of these "original" rdta have continued to be produced and sold, most of which are steam museum exhibits.

Recently, however, rdta has been revised and redefined. The manual pump of "automatic oil dripping" is gone forever. In your opinion, this is a brand new design, which uses wet oil guide cotton to guide the oil to the coil.

Starting from the second half of 2015. the manufacturer began to produce a new RTA (Reconfigurable oil storage atomizer), which did not use the "channel" of cigarette oil to place the oil guide cotton; on the contrary, these new atomizers set cotton holes on the electrode base, trim the end of the cotton and extend it to the lower oil storage bin through the cotton holes, and guide the cigarette oil by gravity and pressure, Saturate cotton.

Another subjective reason is that manufacturers name these redesigned atomizers rdta in order to highlight their so-called performance improvements. As mentioned above, RDA is considered as the best atomizer, so manufacturers will publicize that their so-called RDA can provide better performance than conventional RTA. It's a muddle because it's essentially a marketing strategy.

The former reason, the redesigned oil guide system, can really be used as the reason to rename some RTAs as rdta; the latter reason is obviously not tenable, but this is also the current situation of the market.
