Not a bath, just ran it under hot water.

I just noticed that now that you pointed it out - good eye! On rechecking - that is a metal lip, or burr I guess. As mentioned the machining is far from perfect on the base. But, I don't believe it will affect the performance at all.

I am going to do a build on it tomorrow if I have time. Will let you know how it goes.

I received this one last weekend, and I can't screw the RBA coil tight. It just spins at the end. Can't use it either because it doesn't make contact.

Just received. Looks and feels authentic. There are sharp edges at the metal edges of tank frame though, I just quickly sand off and fine now.

RBA deck looks good and screws nicely into base and make contact, tested with readings correctly.


Leaving it to soak before reviewing later.

First impressions after trying out the 0.5/1.2 ohm coils and rebuilding the RBA.

This tank needs a thorough washing/clean/hot bath to get rid of machine oil. Once done, you're in vaping heaven.

Love the RBA deck, the way it allows you to secure the coils with ease is lovely. Best design so far IMO. The slots besides the screw allow you to lock the coils and definitely reduce chances of damaging the screw heads. Once secured, you can easily twist to break off the coil, brilliant. (Not forgetting the Magic Blue screwdriver fits the screw heads perfectly, LOL.)

Prefer using the RBA as it is gives noticeably more airflow..

Drip tip fitment appears too tight initially. But once you lube it with e-juice and slot in, it becomes unmovable and sturdy like a rock, lol.

Cons depend on expectations. This is no RDA due to chamber and tube constraints, so it'll give a warmer vape with occasionally spit back at higher wattages.

The flavour is amazing and best vaped between 15 to 25W for a more enjoyable experience.

Overall, a value for money, highly versatile & excellent RTA.

Looking forward to future design with better cooling and reduction of spit backs.

You should fill out a ticket. Sounds like a defective unit

unrealistic expectations lend to disappointment

UK users - I ordered two spare RBA sections from myepack, they fit as they should and no more spinning.

Still not sure its worth submitting a ticket unless FT finally start to stock them, then i'll happily exchange the faulty one

The 510 threads on mine are too thin and won't screw tight on my Hana as it keeps coming loose and not making a good negative connection.
