    I am looking at this RDA for quite a while now. I am deciding if I will buy this RDA or not. Anyone can share their experiences on this RDA?

    The best by far IMHO is the Ijoy limitless RDA. It has by far become my favorite tank. The best features I like is that you can buy a whole heap of various decks for it as accessories and your builds are limited to your imagination.

    nice! Thanks for an awesome reply. I have the Limitless RDTA Plus by iJoy and I think it is a pretty good RDTA. I just want to experience building and using an RDA that's why I am looking at this atomizer.

    Pros:
    1) center air flow...great for both single and dual coils
    2) spring loaded clamps make it super easy to install coils
    3) juice well that you can partially close after filling...it's not a massive juice well, so no worries there
    4) fantastic flavor...it really shines single coil at middle of the road wattages.

    Cons:
    1) uneven clamps with single coils...they're a little off center when you install a single coil
    2) screw down cap. but that can be a pro, it's really subjective...
    3) some people have experienced seepage from the seam at the bottom of the tank near the air flow

    Wick it right, and you have an awesome little pseudo RDTA. Great flavor, great air flow for those clouds, I really can't complain.

    This is not, technically, an RDA. It is closer to an RDTA (as others have pointed out by comparing it to the Limitless line). You wouldn't want to drip on this tank. The eliquid dropped into the top could easily go right down the air slots. For a first RDA, consider something like a Velocity or Troll V2.

    A Goon clone from FastTech would be a really good first RDA. It's 24 mm though, so make sure your mod is at least 24 mm wide. An SXK Kennedy 24 mm clone from FastTech is another great RDA.

    Pretty much spot on except for the seeping at the bottom of the afc. It leaks, not seeps. Love the tank but the leaking is nerve wracking.

    I have occasional minor seeping, but if it's leaking that badly from there, it might be a damaged o-ring or some unseen damage in the juice well.

    The o-ring was the first thing I replaced. When that didn't work I put a little beefier o-ring on it. Still no luck. It's clearly coming from the bottom side of the AFC ring. Not exactly sure where to go from here. Thinking about sealing the bottom of the AFC ring with some sort of epoxy or something.

    Maybe a little silicone. Have you tried contacting them? They might replace it for you.

    I'd use a silicone food grade/food contact safe rtv gasket maker...think it's inexpensive.

    I won it in a GearBest contest. Not sure if I should contact them or DigiFlavor.

    Ah, I'd get in touch with Gearbest first.

    thanks for the input guys. I also read that there are some leaking issues and the "tilt to drip" method is a con for somebody. I love the black pharaoh but I think I'll try first the Goon or the Velocity. :)

    Goon's awesome. Straight dripper, no muss no fuss.

    Check out the Reload as well.

    I have a leaking problem from the seam in the bottom too. Is there a way to take apart the bottom part where the air control ring is? I cant seem to find out how....

    I haven't figured out anything yet. It does ok for about 8 hours and then it poops juice all over the place. All from under the AFC ring.

    I've tried a beefier o-ring. Thinking of trying a good grade epoxy.

    Hmmm, where did you try the beefier o ring? I cant remove the afc ring, and I cant remove the base from the deck.... The only o ring I see, is the one on the threads that the top cap threads onto. Are you talking about that o ring?

    That's the one. At the bottom of the threads just above the AFC ring. The beefier o-ring just came out of a Total Hunter Mini rda I had. But it didn't help much and it doesn't give the outside a flush finish. If I get a chance I will take a pic when I get home.

    I got my pharaoh rda tonight. I've been making some crazy braided wire. I put a huge coil in this thing and it is awesome. Nice airflow. Great flavor and killer clouds. One drawback is it does get hot fast. It will be a fun RDA to play with for sure.
