Atmizoo Tripod RTA

11 DAY’s In…

What can I say about the Atmizoo Tripod? alot, but if you go and watch any of the YouTube reviews you will hear that it’s one of the best RTA’s out there right now. Every review is positive.

Now for my take on the device:

316L surgical or medical grade stainless steel devices are alluring to me, they always have been. It’s basically the best stainless steel you can get. The machining on this device is amazing. I purchased this batch 2 device #TR-768 from VapourArt the day it was released there, with the extension kit.

The Tripod is made for MTL or R-DTL style vaping. I would not call this a direct lung hit atomizer. The restricted air flow and condensed air chamber are all about flavor. Even if you remove the restrictor disk from the chamber, your air flow will not increase, only your flavor will decrease.

I like the design of how you can remove the tank to inspect your deck and it’s easy to remove. The top cap however (by design) is harder to rotate to its open position to fill your tank as you have to grip the glass tank (without wet fingers) to turn it to line up the small dimple. You have to wear your glasses (like me) to see the open points however as they are small triangles/dimples cut into the metal.

With the 3.4ml extension kit installed, you cannot secure the air chamber restrictor disk with the screw you can with the 2ml tank. It’s no big deal and it has not moved downward (yet) as its secured with an o-ring. Knock on wood.

The drip tip is proprietary but you can (as I did) put your own drip tip on it.

Other than these small niggles, this RTA is just about perfect, yes perfect.
If you can find one, buy it. You will not be disappointed.

DotMod Petri V2 Squonk Kit Install

As a preface to the video, the Petri is one of the best all around rda’s ever produced IMHO. Its well made, engineered for flavor and originally had no AFC which means they carefully thought out size and positioning if the air holes and tightness of draw of a single hole on each side of the cap. The press fit drip tip is still the best tip to use with this rda for draw and flavor. I have tried other drip tips but none compare to the stock drip tip the way its designed. The cloud cap came along afterwards only by demand of people interested in cloud blowing and competitive cloud blowing events at the time vs. flavor. As time passed, the demand for 24mm rda’s came about and so DotMod came out with a conversion cap for that purpose that includes AFC as well.

Before the $5 Squonk Kit came out recently, I thought there was really no need for the small hex tool that came with the rda and hence I never used it and never could figure out why it was included because it did not fit anything visible on/in the RDA. After I watched the French video on how to replace the French conversion kit a light bulb went on, even though the guy did not even use the included allen key. I did not remember that the rda did come with a tool until after making the video. I dug in my archive of empty boxes of vape hardware to find the tool, tore down my build to try it and NO it does not fit the hex screw that holds down the negative post, it’s too small. I just don’t know why they included the tool when it does not fit. Anyway, you will have to find your own H1.3 hex bit driver or allen wrench to remove the negative post screw as stated in the video.
