    Depends. Some idiots are apparently charging hundreds of dollars on facetwitbook for RDAs. I got a couple of Achilles clones for $25 each... got an authentic Achilles II (which sucked!) for $98.

    I have seen some high end RDAs for over $100. Some even $150+. It all depends on what you want. I like rare and unconventional items so my RTA was over $200 with all the add ones. But I love it with all its quirks. I have saved more from not smoking so I can justify it in my mind to pay more for some items.

    But I know a ejuice guy so I do not pay for juice. That’s how I save a bunch of money

    IMG_0936.JPG This is my collection so far there's another picture but apparently the file is too large and I have 5 more bottles coming within the next 2 days and I forgot to include my pink punch lemonade flavor once I burn out the liquid in my tank I'm gonna try the pumpkin spice latte flavor cause it smells like it tastes better than I thought it would

    It depends, I have some that were around 30$ new and some that were over 100$ new... Some people spend and an insane amount of money on them. I have a friend from here with a 1000$ mech mod and a 500$ rda.
    My favorites are the hadalay, wasp, goon and recoil.
    The wasp can be had for 10 bucks new anytime. The Maddog is another good one for around 15$ on fasttech.
    If you go to fast tech and search for authentic rda pages pop up of some inexpensive options.
    https://www.fasttech.com/search?Authentic rda

    Nowadays you don't have to spend much money on good hardware.

    Yep they didn't keep up, there still is a small market for =<20W vaping but it is rather small. All they really needed to do is go up to 75W and they'd still be competitive.

    They did go up to 6ow as a last gasp. But to my understanding that was to dump stocked up hardware and help pay off creditors before shutting the doors.

    It's also to my understanding that they tried to make a deal with evolv for dna 75 boards, to make a dna 75 radius. That would have been a grand mod; but, provape wanted evolv to drop the price down below what they sell the boards to hcigar for. Needless to say evolv wouldn't lose money on their products and provape didn't get the comeback they wanted.

    Just start building, start with basic coils, then parallel and twisted. You'll move up from there but even basic coils are very simple to build but 100x better than factory coils mass produced in China.
    Yeah I still have a number of Crown V1 that I still vape on. Once you get the RBA deck build down it's simple
    That's a Reload Clone, decent but the Authentic is much better.
    100% VG lots of clouds but muted/soapy flavor, not worth it. If all you care about is clouds save time and money and just get 100% unflavored VG. It'll probably even taste better.
    I've got a number of $120+ attys, well worth it. You just need to be very selective. All my MCV RDA'S were over $120 but so worth it.

    Well more than likely if you can do a single build coil you could probably do a dual build. Also something i haven't thought of yet, when you build your own say you have a .3 ohm build does that mean you can only do less than 50w or whatever wattage you want? I'm just using that as an example because I have a .25ohm smok coil and the max wattage it can handle is 50w

    Its quite disappointing i'm trying to taste maybe even enjoy my vanilla custard flavored liquid which I've never had, but its being tainted by mostly spearmint with some vanilla cause the last flavor i had was Irish shamrock milkshake by vape wild and its not very good. it should be vanilla with a hint of spearmint yet its hot sensation spearmint vapor, with a hint of vanilla. i really don't like it id even consider giving it away but i feel like I'd be passing on a nuisance cause its like a mix of puffing on a pretty much shot coil, smoking a fuckin Marlboro menthol or maverick menthol only, it just might be worse with the feeling i get in my throat than what i got from smoking those 2 brands of cigarettes. I'd advise never even clicking the flavor if your on vape wild. What might be more disappointing is the fact that i still have like 28ml of the shit cause i only filled my tank once and normally I go through a tank of a flavor i like in 1-1.5 hours and this lasted me the past like 4 hours. Its like com'on even the pumpkin spice latte is better than this and It was just a bonus liquid that I didn't even choose the flavor of.

    that lady at the bottom calling it creamy mint ADV has got to be out of her mind she also went on to add that the mint is not overpowering when its all i can fucking taste also added that the mint is smooth , which it is if you like the sensation you get when your using a burnt out coil :poop: that emoji is exactly how i would describe it, a steaming pile of shit LOL.

    Don't give it away. You just need a new coil. Some flavors, like anything minty, are hard to get through when you change to a different flavor. That's another pro to building your own coils. If you can't get the flavor out, just throw some new cotton in there.

    Everyone has different tastes. Maybe it needs more steep time? I never had it so it might actually be garbage and time would have no effect. Hate to see when people have to waste juice, so maybe if you can spare some cash, grab a couple creams and vanilla s from bull city and doctor it a bit? If not I find with subpar or lame juice, I mix it with some other flavor that could go nice with it. Dragon fruit and strawberry would go good with mint n cream I'd imagine. Whatever ya do, just hope you don't have to pour it.

    Are you sure you want to order from China companies????
    I do order from Heaven Gifts,Fasttech and Gearbest and waiting for these to arrive can take weeks to months, very trying ordeal if you are not the patient type.
    Sometimes it is worth the few extra dollars to get it from a US vendor- I see above you sweating out a few days with a US vendor- nothing compared to a China Vendor.
    I usually use China vendors for stocking up on factory coils and odds and ends like drip tips,tools,wire- but I did break my rule and order the Ample Pixy RDTA from Heaven Gifts and it took over 3 weeks to get it- no US vendor has this and was a flash sale for $13.50.
    I am still waiting for GearBest to ship my OBS Crius ll since 11/23 they say shipped, but nothing shows up on any tracking- that is an XMas gift for a friend so I hope I get it by then- again great flash sale price!

    Save those flavors for when you are sick- the menthol(spearmint- koolada) has a nice cooling effect on a sore throat and those flavors may not be as strong then!
    Shake up all your new liquids really well and leave the caps off to try to get it to air out, maybe overnite helps, store them in a cool dark cabinet if possible.

    First and only time I ordered from Gearbest it took close to 3 months, needless to say I will not order anything from them again.

    China sites I stick with 3Fvape and Fasttech. The average time is 3-4 weeks, I can live with that.

    I thought about this cause it kinda broke up mucus in my lungs a bit (or created it) I'm not sure which, since everyone but me has been sick. so maybe I'm going to have to use it at some point in the near future cause I've been around them being sick for almost 2 weeks, and I think even though I only vape now, it's only a matter of time before it will get me, at the same time I hope it doesn't though cause I think it'd be like HAHA, I never got sick and was around them for an extended period of time

    I'm a bit agitated currently by a shipment I'm awaiting from Ft, and it's not even their fault -- it left Beijing on the 11th... and no tracking updates whatsofuckingever since then.

    EVENTUALLY, your body will encounter some cold/flu virus it hasn't encountered before, and you will get sick -- your young age virtually guarantees it. But, being a non-smoker means your immune system is in MUCH better shape to fight off and laugh at viruses that take smokers down completely, including the 6 wks of pneumonic coughing.

    But one of the very best things about getting older is that you've already encountered so many variations of cold viruses, you don't catch cold very often. :)

    My last order from FT got here in 12 days.... and I did the same kind of shipping with this one that's so tardy, so I have no fucking clue what's going on with it.

    That is why i would suggest to the op not to order from china if he wants parts now. It is hard to judge when a package is coming from so far. FT is a great company and im sure they will resend one if the order never gets here. That is why I only order part I don't need right away. I once ordered from japan and Miami, FL on the same day. The japan one came first. I was shocked

    Totally agree. I didn't order from FT at all, for a couple yrs, because my first order from them, I didn't know not to use their free shipping option, and it took 43 days. :facepalm: The stuff I ordered this time, it's just a few driptips, and an OBS Engine nano for an xmas gift for my son... so I'm really hoping they get their thumb out of their ass and get it here before xmas! I ordered it on Nov 8! It shipped on the 9th, and left Beijing on the 11th! Fuckers!

    That's kind of how USPS is at times but my guess it's still in transit and hasn't been scanned yet again because it hasn't been taken off it's original method of delivery from Asia

    Banggood.com I ordered some replacement glass for my smok baby beast on 11/23 supposed to arrive 12/12 so that's pretty quick for free shipping from Asia, international shipping most of the time takes a few weeks no matter what unless you pay like 20$+ for expedited shipping

    I have a sneaking feeling it's some FUBAR at the port of Miami; the last one that got here in 12 days, it was RIGHT after Miami re-opened after the hurricane, so I guess everyone was all excited about being able to go to work. Now it's just business as usual so they're just taking their usual sweet ass time. :facepalm:

    Yeah could be I remember the other day you saying it's hard to find a good chocolate flavor and I said chocolate sounds gross and forgot at the time I had some like "Cocoa Puffs" cereal flavor coming and remembered when it got here yesterday next time I fill my tank that's what I'm putting in if hoping it's good I got some fruity pebbles cereal liquid in the same batch which is made pretty accurately so maybe the chocolate one will be too if it is then it'll be pretty good

    Let me know if yours shows up, or you get a tracking update. I keep trying with 17track, and it just keeps saying the same old shit. :headbang:

    I sent some gear to another member of the forum that lives a few states away. It was never scanned once. It magically appeared at his house 4 days after it left here.
    USPS sucks.
    As to FT: like most people here, I only order incidentals (parts and extra doodads) unless there is a sale I can't pass up.
    3fvape has tended to be a little bit better on the shipping for me. Gearbest: I won't touch with a troll Weiner. I ordered a battery for a drone from them and it took 3 months for them to ship it.
    101vape, eciggity and element vape tend to have some of the best prices for us based vendors. Still some things like the wasp, and maddog can't be found easily in the USA. I figured at 10-15$ for someone to try their hand at building with a good performing rda, it's not much of a gamble.

    Never buying candy flavored liquid again bought Swedish fish flavor and it's nothing like Swedish fish nor were any of the candy flavors I bought like the actual candy only decent one I got was sour gummy worm flavor and even then idk if I'd get it again. Fruit dessert and certain breakfast flavors were made for me lol.

    Strange. Mine says "Beijing, leave Beijing to send to Miami" on the 11th. And then nothing at all since then.

    For mine the shipping label was put on it during the 12th, just departed from Beijing at around 5am est this morning, so I assume it's on the ship. That being said I have got fasttech orders before that never got updated and just showed up one day, so who knows?

    I was so fucking close to guessing vapewild s mystery flavor I guessed "mango tango" which is peach and mango but it was "techno mango" kinda hoping since I got my last package from them they sent me some of Decembers mystery flavor but I doubt they wouldve cause of the overstock of November which is probably why I got 3x10ml as a bonus of that flavor

    Yep, I've seen that with orders from Poland, so it's definitely possible -- like it just teleported here from Poland or something. :D Guess it just depends on how the customs/USPS in Miami feels that day. :D My last one, just as soon as it hit Miami, it was scanned, and then scanned again when it departed Miami.

    My package from Fasttech is sitting in New York right now. Says it'll arrive Thursday, I'll probably see it around Christmas.

    Are you shitting me? I've still got absolutely nothing after it left Beijing on the 11th of Nov. One of the items is a STM RBA head, for the Kanger toptank I got for my son, and since I already have the toptank, I just went ahead and ordered a STM RBA head from Sweet-Vapes, along with a Melo ECR head for the Melo 3 I won and passed on to my son. Apparently I passed the Istick Pico to him too, since he loves the thing; I find it a bit too small for my hands, so I'm not sure how he can stand it, but he really likes it. Go figger.

    I'm half the distance you are from FT and I've been waiting 3 weeks for squonk bottles. I only use FT when 3FVape doesn't have what I want.
