DECKS AND SPARES FAQs
What is a build deck?
A build deck is the part of a rebuildable (RBA) where you mount the coils and wick. When you vape, the air passes through the coils on the deck, then goes up to the chimney and out of the drip tip. The shape, size, and type of the build deck have a huge effect on your overall vaping experience since it determines your coil setup.
What are the popular types of build decks?
Build decks can usually be differentiated based on their posts, which typically contain holes that you attach the coils to. Most build decks are double or triple-post, respectively allowing for a single or dual coil setup. A velocity style two-post deck goes further by having two holes on each post for more complex setups. There are also postless decks where the holes are simply at the bottom.
How do RDAs, RTAs, and RDTAs differ?
Build decks are found in rebuildables, which include RDAs, RTAs, and RDTAs. RDAs (rebuildable dripping atomisers) require you to drip or add the e-liquid manually, while RTAs (rebuildable tank atomisers) have a tank system that makes the flow of e-liquid automatic. RDTAs (rebuildable dripping tank atomisers) combine the two, giving you the option to both drip and use a tank.
Do I use a single or dual coil?
Single and dual coil remains the most common configuration. Single coil is cheaper and more conservative when it comes to e-liquid and battery power, while dual coil provides greater heat, vapour, and flavour intensity while consuming more resources.
How do I mount coils on a deck?
In general, you take the build deck and loosen the post screws so you can fit the coil into the posts. Each build deck has a certain setup, such that the leads of your coils have to face a certain direction. Simply thread the coil into the post holes and then secure it by tightening the screws.
