A Vape Tank Battle: Disposable versus Rebuildable Vape Tanks

A Vape Tank Battle: Disposable versus Rebuildable Vape Tanks

When it comes to using a vape tank, there are various options available for most vapers out there to use. A primary question that arises is whether to use a disposable or a rebuildable one, and what this even entails. We are going to  explore disposable clearomizers, rebuildable dripping atomizers (RDAs), and rebuildable tank atomizers (RTAs). We’ll look at what they are, how they work, and the pros and cons of each.

* What are disposable and rebuildable tanks? *


Clearomizers: These tanks are very popular nowadays. They are cylindrical in shape and the tank itself usually either contains clear Polycarbonate plastic or a Pyrex glass tank. Through the tank, you can see the level of liquid inside of the clearomizer. Their usage is simple: the user fills it with liquid and subsequently can vape directly. Newer clearomizers allow for sub-ohm vaping.


Rebuildable Dripping Atomizer (RDA): Allows for sub-ohm vaping. Is a user-constructed setup with wicks and coils, in which liquid is dripped directly onto the coils then vaporized.

Rebuildable Tank Atomizer (RTA): Something of a hybrid between an RDA and a clearomizer, an RTA is a tank that the user can build coils on.

* How each works *

Clearomizers: The user adds liquid to the tank and can directly vape once a coil is added.
Rebuildable Dripping Atomizer (RDA): The user buys wire and cotton and uses them to create the surface upon which the
e-liquid is dripped.

Rebuildable Tank Atomizer (RTA): The user builds the coils using wire and cotton, and this is placed on the tank. The tank itself holds liquid in amounts comparable to clearomizers.

* Pros of Each *

Clearomizer: A clearomizer is the easiest to use of the above tank setups. Overall, they require very little vape knowledge. They can hold a considerable amount of liquid.

Rebuildable Dripping Atomizer (RDA): This setup easily offers the largest vapor production of all three setups discussed here. In addition, it allows for richness of flavor. The user can switch between flavors during a session without the taste of the last flavor lingering.

Rebuildable Tank Atomizer (RTA): This setup offers very solid vapor production and flavor. Because of the presence of the tank, it is able to hold a lot of juice, much like a clearomizer can.

* Cons of Each *

Clearomizer: Easily the priciest of the three setups discussed here, especially since it does not allow for longevity.

Rebuildable Dripping Atomizer (RDA): Does not have as much juice capacity as the other setups. In addition, this requires a fair amount of vaping experience and knowledge, since wicking is required.

Rebuildable Tank Atomizer (RTA): Vapor production and flavor not as good as an RDA. Similarly, to an RDA, requires a solid knowledge basis in vaping in order to be able to use.
We’ve seen what disposable and rebuildable vape tanks are. The disposable option, the clearomizer, was seen to be a solid choice for novice vapers and for convenience and liquid storage. This however, comes with a price tag. The rebuildable options, the rebuildable tank atomizer (RTA) and the Rebuildable Dripping (RDA), were both seen to be less pricey options than a clearomizer. Both also required extensive vaping knowledge to be able to use. The RDA was seen to be the more solid in terms of vapor and flavor but the RTA was better in terms of vapor storage and convenience.
