    Sqonking is the way to go, I just bought the Luxotic BF mod with the Tohbino atty (comes with). I haven’t been able to put it down.

    Since you mentioned squonking... It's easy to fall in love with iJoy's combo SRDA. Besides easy re-wicking of its pre-built drop-in coils:

    a. Changing vape flavors is a breeze with its changeable heads. Tank system is still the best but for an RDA? No need to buy another one.

    b. As you advance, various types of rda heads are available for advanced coil designs, e.g., frame staple and fuzed clapton types.

    c. Lastly, its airflow system design. The space in between the rda wall and the coil head is actually an airway all around, with the top cover making a semi seal. This means we don't necessarily need to line up outside air holes to the slots of the coil head. When you draw, air travels around and eventually finds the slots of the coil head. Confining SIDE spitbacks from the air holes, I guess, is the main reason why iJoy designed it that way. Pretty impressive actually. No more e-liquid marks on our clothes.

    +1 on the learning curve. I've just started with an RDA (BONZA) and I'll say @christylh8 - Dripping is MUCH easier as far as if you make a mistake or if something isn't quite right with your coils then you have a much easier time of fixing them rather than having to mess about with removing the deck from the tank especially if they're postless. My GeekVape Zeus is an amazing RTA but given the size and dexterity of my hands it's a mission to change over coils and cotton. The Bonza deck is really open and as long as you have the right tools it is a real joy to install. I also splurged for a proper toolkit (highly recommend). You can get heaps of post designs as well, I've had a look at the HellVape Dead Rabbit up close and it has a different way of going about things so personal preference I suppose.

    Probably another thing that I would suggest just based on the last few days with my RDA and with my RTA is do yourself a favour and splurge for a set (enough to do your atomiser twice over) of REALLY good handmade coils, cost wise it's expensive but they do last a long time but the other advantage is that if you ever decide to make your own you know exactly what to look for as you've had premium gear inside to start with. Not to mention that if you're anything like me with this stuff my head would nearly explode with all the information out there, can get quite overwhelming. But I promise it's worth it.

    I'm also with Anna on this one - buying drop-in coils makes life easier no question, but the first thing I noticed when I got my first vape mod was when I was at the counter asking for replacement coils...

    "and can I get a packet of replacement coils?"

    "Yea we only have the GT2"

    "Ok, when will you get stock of the others?"

    "Really not sure at this stage"

    NB: It's pretty much the same in any store I went to either online or local

    First indicator that things can go south REALLY quickly unless you go full survivalist and have a shipping container full of them. So if nothing else it's a handy skill to have and to be able to make use of if your drop-ins supply suddenly evaporate and you have a deck that can handle it. It strikes a personal chord for me as I haven't had a cigarette since the day I started vaping.....and I'll be damned if I go back.

    I dont even take the wicks all the way into the tank on my limitless plus. Its like magic how it wicks like that, even when there is little juice left in the tank. Ive seen rdta's with wicking to the bottom of the tank but i found its not necessary.

    That is the same as my ijoy combo RDTA, when I did use it a lot I found it much easier to trim the tails to the point that they are just under the deck, but not visible through the glass. No dry hits and it seemed to wick faster as well.
