    This certainly isn't a quiet RDTA.
    It definitely likes a LOT a juice.
    Emptied the first 5 fills in less than an hour.
    I normally go through about 45ml / day but I could easily see this causing that to increase.
    Since I DIY and mix a gallon at a time that normally last me right around 3 months I'm not overly concerned about increased juice consumption.

    Things I personally like:
    1. 5ml juice capacity
    2. Velocity style deck
    3. Airflow right next to the coil (is actually side but they call it top)
    4. Designed basically just like the Ijoy Combo / Limitless Plus / Classic (been favorites of mine)
    5. Easy fill
    6. 25mm
    7. This one adds a different style of anti-spit back
    8. Drip tip similar design to the Smok Minos or TFV4 Micro (worked really well for me)
    9. More than two simple color options
    10. Is changeable from RDTA to RDA.

    Things I didn't personally care for:
    1. A little on the noisy side
    2. Uses a lot more juice than many similar RDTAs
    3. Proprietary drip tip (there is nothing wrong with this drip tip, I just don't care for the fact I have no others nor could I find any alternatives that'd fit it)
    4. The bottom of the base needs refined a bit.
    I have never scratched the paint off a mod when threading any tank/RDTA/RTA/RDA on.
    This one REMOVED the paint on the outer ring of the top of my yellow Battlestar.
    I am NOT happy about that at all.
    Truly disappointed, not in the entire RDTA, just that it scratched my mod.

    I can't quite put my finger on it but even with the list of items I didn't care for, I really like this RDTA.
    It may be a bit weak on flavor but I just enjoy using it.
    I intentionally delayed posting this while I was trying to figure out what made me like it so much but I just can't figure it out.
    I'll keep using it daily because for me the likes out weigh the dislikes.

    The Vaptio Turbo RDTA-L certainly provides the capability for greatness.
    There is plenty of room for whatever coils you want to put to use.
    Flavor, clouds, combination, whatever you're after.

    Great review para!

    Still deciding which way to land on this for my review! I don't disagree with anything here except the flavour note I find it to be really impressive but that's always subjective and depends greatly on coil and wicking and juice

    Thanks KingPin!
    Oddly enough I think I'm going to need another one.
    It's like that one friend you have that is annoying at times but you enjoy having around.

    Yes perfect description!!! thing is though I keep going back to it because I love the flavour and how it vapes best RDTA I've tried in fact for those things Christ it's number two on my top flavour list .....yet there are other things that really wind me up in equal measure...my review is pretty much done just giving it another week to see if anything else crops up I haven't found yet

    been a little OCD on this never had that before I normally land one side or the other fairly easily
