I received this RDA free of charge from cigabuy.com for the purpose of this review. Regardless of this, it will not color my opinion on this review in any way, shape or form.
This comes in a black box and when you open it up you find the rda on top together with the goodie bag containing a pair of coils, a couple of o-rings and a tool with a screwdriver and Allen keys on it.
This is a 2-piece rda that comes with a proprietary drip tip that you thread onto the top cap and no drip tips I have would fit into it and most likely none of yours either.
It has a 2-post deck with a Kennedy style airflow which unfortunately isn’t adjustable. The deck itself is easy enough to build on and it got a fairly deep juice well, however it has a bit cramped space for the cotton when its coiled so it is important to adjust the length of the cotton when wicking it.
The nuts that resemble the ones on the Druga RDA, that you tighten down the wire with is not bad at all and makes it easier to tighten the coils enough to hold them in place when you build.
One thing that really surprises me is that a company like VGOD that are well known for making hybrid mech mods doesn’t make sure their RDA is hybrid safe. If you ask me the 510 pin doesn’t protrude enough to be called hybrid safe and I wouldn’t use the one I got on any of my hybrid mech mods.
Compared with lots of other RDA’s the o-rings do their job and keep the top cap in place with a snug fit which is a good thing. You all know how much I detest bad o-rings on an RDA.
Vaping on the Elite isn’t really a life changing experience, it provides you with clouds and that is basically all it does. Sure there is some flavor but I can honestly not call it anything but severely muted flavor wise.
It clearly shows that this RDA is built for one thing and one thing only, and that is for making clouds and nothing else. Anyone calling this a flavor RDA clearly hasn’t used any RDA’s providing good flavor and got a big surprise coming when they do.
Looking at how VGOD does their branding I am surprised that it is so plain, I did kinda expect it to be overly branded like their other products but luckily it isn’t.
This was an actual disappointment to be honest, the build quality on the RDA is good enough and it was easy to build but looking at basic things like flavor it totally fails. Making an RDA these days with a proprietary drip tip is another fail.
Can I recommend it to others?
If you are after clouds and nothing else I see no issues getting this but if you wanna get an RDA that can provide you with decent flavor this is not the one to get since it can’t deliver on that at all.
