RBA Plus V1 or V2 ?
Hey guys!

I've just ordered this SMT,but after a bit of reading,it seems that nowadays Minis are delivered with the smaller side hole/Toptank mini like RBA's. Can someone,who purchased recently and received his/her order confirm this?

Thanks in advance!

Note: There are at least 3 versions now! The first ones had small kayfun styled juice holes, without a peak insulator I believe! The second had a large juice hole in the side, and now the third one has a smaller side juice hole.

Thanks for the reply guys.Have to tell,i'm a bit dissapointed,but sure Kanger had a reason to change their RBA-s side holes.Leaking issues maybe?
Dan,i'd still appreciate,if u check back after u get yours,and let me know,which type it is,maybe FT still got the V1 ones to sell.Would be good to know,because mine is going to arrive just in time before TPD hits Europe,so if i want to order another one,i have to know,which version FT has in their inventory.

I recently ordered a fresh base and rba(along with a 5pk of bellcaps) and will compare the rba to my old one(mk 2 with side holes). If smaller i will just fire up the dremel.
Another option would be to build your coils vertically,i have run my Subtank almost always like that and never had wicking issues or dry hits where as with horizontals the wicking is more critical-too much/dry hit -too little/floods
Vote in haste.Repent at leisure.

I just got mine a few days ago. The RBA comes with the smaller side holes on it. Was worried at first, but no problems so far. It wicks like a champ, no dry hits when heavy chain vaping, and even with my poor building skills i can't make it leak. Have to say, i'm realy impressed by the quality, and how newbie friendly this stuff is.

what do you mean with "smaller"? is it like Toptank RBA?
can you please englight me:
1. RBA with small bottom holes
2. RBA with normal middle holes (for Subtank)
3. RBA with smaller (than in 2) middle holes (for Toptank)
Did I miss something?

+1 details
This version( let's call it RBA plus V2) has Toptank mini like side juice holes.But don't let that discourage u(i mean the smaller holes),these RBA's work like a charm:easy to wick,no leak so far,and pretty nice flavor i get from these.

So, basically now there is no reason to prefer Subtank over the Toptank anymore ? :)
I mean, if they have the same RBA head, the Toptank wins (not counting the complectation) because it has the top fill.
