    Hello guys im new to this forum cuz i was banned on other vaping forum so hopefully i can be happy here and get all the infos i need. So first im looking to buy the vandy vape trident kit since its regulated and look like a mechanical mod and its waterproof but i want to know if i can use an rda on it and which rda do you recommend on this kit since i never used rda before so i dont rly understand ohm and resistance but i know very well how to build coils on rda, so back to my question can i use rda on this kit and which one you guys recommend i need answers fast! Thanks.

    Looks like you can use any rda you want. The most is 25mm diameter so, personally I wouldn't go larger than that.
    If it were me, I would look at either the goon 25 or axial.
    Now, its regulated for safety but you can't adjust power output. If that is something you want, you won't get it there. Additionally, you won't have the advantage of a larger battery than the 18650, so if you're running a lower build, you'll want to carry a few spare.
    Other than that, it is a nice piece of kit.

    You will need either a regulated mod with a screen on it or an ohm reader to test your coils before you use them in an RDA you put on this stick. Even though there are some protections, the vape you get from the device will be governed by the coil(s) you put in that RDA. Since you can't adjust wattage or volts, you have to set the vape by your coil resistance.

    The coils for the tank that comes with it go down to 0.15 ohms, which tells me that you'd be ok with an RDA that measures at 0.15 ohms, too. But I doubt you'd want to go any lower than that. Keep in mind too that the lower your coil resistance is, the faster you'll use up your juice and drain your battery. If I were using it, just personal preference for me would be a single coil at between 0.25 and 0.35 ohms.

    Yes it will work... and yes the 5a is a good battery.. probably the best battery available in 18650


    That said, I would repeat with everything @nadalama said above.

    A single coil Recurve wouldn't be a bad choice, or a Blitz Ghoul, an Asmodus C4, Drop Solo. The Recurve is going to come with a couple of Wotofo's N80 fused Clapton coils, which are really pretty decent. It's also an easy RDA to build.

    Hmm so the n80 fused clapton coils work well on my vape without the need for ohm reader? or still i need to check the ohm

    N80 is just another metal that we use to vape with
    Kanthal A1
    SS316
    NI200
    NI80
    NI90

    Are the more popular wires we use. My advice to people is to always check your builds on an ohm meter or a regulated mod. If for no other reason than to check for shorts, make sure the post holes have a good hold on the coil, check to be sure the coil isn't touching the topcap and to ensure the installation is not wonky in general.
    The simple ohm meters are not that expensive, and certainly cheaper than a doctors bill or cost to replace a good mod. If you opt for a regulated mod to use as an ohm meter, you've done double duty. You get a backup mod, which you may quite possibly enjoy using, and a building station.

    Yes, ^^^^^^^ This! You still need to check the coils. Even with bought coils things can sometimes go awry.
