This rdta came in a fancy little box held shut firmly with a little band and nob. Upon opening the package I noticed it came with the tank itself, an extra 2ml glass, and a baggie fillied with orings, extra post screws, a 510 drip tip adapter, an Allen tool, and a squoking pin.
After tearing through the package to anxiously throw a build in the Gaia, I tore it apart to give it a thorough cleaning and noticed it broke apart into 5 parts including the drip tip. A bottom base, 2ml glass section, the velocity build deck/510 pin, a top cap, and an ultem drip tip (at least i think its ultem).
After pulling off the drip tip and top cap you can see that the velocity build deck is connected right with the 510 pin making it very easy to untwist from the base of the tank and separate from the glass section. All in all it is super easy to pull apart for an initial cleaning. Speaking of cleaning, I found next to no machine oil which made the cleaning process a whole lot faster.
I also noticed when taking off the top cap that it is similar to a velocity rda where the side airflow is changed by twisting the cap to open and close the airflow. It also has bottom style airflow. Personally I rock full bottom airflow, and a few turns open on the side airflow.
This tank also has a nifty fill port between the velocity posts where you can stick a dropper or unicorn tip in it and just push and fill. The smaller the tip the better. So far I have not had a problem filling the tank.
Being a velocity style deck, it's as easy as popping your coils in, tightening them down, and wicking your cotton correctly. I put in a couple of juggernaut singles at 3mm diameter, 5 wrap, reading around .22 ohms. I threw some cotton in the coils, cut it to the top of the glass section, fluffed it up a bit and just shoved it into the wicking holes. After having this build in for a few days I have had no leaks. Happy me I guess.
After spending a few days with this tank I've concluded that this will be my new daily driver. The flavor I get from this thing beats out all of my other atomizers. I did notice however that the more open the airflow, the more the flavor mutes itself. I'm more into flavor than clouds so this is no problem for me.
