Why Do Vapers Use Rebuildable Atomisers?

Why Do Vapers Use Rebuildable Atomisers?

Unlike your standard atomiser, rebuildable atomisers require an individual to make/buy their own coil, install it and wick it using cotton. But some may wonder why go through the effort of doing all this yourself when you can buy a prebuilt coil with a sub-ohm tank? Well, the answer is rather simple, building your own offers a more customised vaping experience by controlling some of the following attributes:

  1. Coil Type
  2. Coil Resistance
  3. Wattage you wish to vape at
  4. Cotton Type

What is a rebuildable atomiser?

There are a vast range of rebuildable atomisers available in the market. The different types include:

  • Rebuildable Dripping Atomizer (RDA) - This kind of atomizer does not have a glass tank section to hold the e-liquid, instead the user must regularly drip liquid directly onto the coils to keep the wick wet.
  • Rebuildable Tank Atomizer (RTA) - This kind of atomizer does have a glass tank to hold the liquid, while still retaining a build deck for installing coils and wicks.
  • Rebuildable Dripping Tank Atomizer (RDTA) - This kind of atomizer has a build deck like an RDA with a glass tank section underneath. The user can fill the tank section with e-liquid and the wicks droop down into the tank stay absorbed.

Advantages of rebuildable atomisers

Despite the progression of the vaping industry and the vast range of sub ohm tanks available in the market, many still opt to use rebuildable atomizers. Below is some of the key advantages outlining just why some individuals are willing to take patience in setting up their own tank.

  1. Great Performance

Rebuildable atomisers gained immense popularity when they first appeared. People wanted to buy them because their performance was unquestionably superior to other vaping devices available. Rebuildable atomisers still have the potential to deliver the best cloud production and flavour compared to a sub ohm tank.

  1. Deep Direct-to-Lung Hits

The biggest highlight of a standard rebuildable atomiser is that its coil isn’t submerged within a tank of e-liquid. The recent vape tanks have exceptional airflow characteristics, but you cannot push a lot of air through an atomiser coil if the coil is submerged in e-liquid. With a rebuildable atomiser, this challenge is eliminated since there is almost no airflow resistance. A rebuildable atomiser is ideal for vapers who like to inhale very deeply during vaping.


Are you a vaper looking to achieve a tailored vaping experience unique to yourself, or just keen to blow big clouds and achieve great flavour, then a Rebuildable Atomizer is the one for you! It may seem like extra effort, but it is something you will not regret.
