5 New Mini RDA Must Haves For 2015

Aside from wide bore tips and quad coil posts, mini RDAs have been keeping dripping alive in the vape culture. And what’s not to like about them? They are small, compact, and are really cool to look at.

But the mini RDAs aren’t just about being cool and compact, the minis were developed based on the “short chamber” theory which is, “the shorter the distance between the atomizer is to the mouth, the more flavorful the juice is.”

This does make sense so I decided to cover 5 mini RDAs that have vapers raving in 2015. Let’s take a look at these small but powerful rebuildable atomizers for all you builders out there!

lowpro rda


I give the LowPro RDA the top spot because it is currently recorded as the smallest dripper out in the market. It’s amazing how they were able to fit all of that in such a tiny RDA. Deep juice well, silver plated positive posts, and a delrin honeycomb protector from spit back and provides airflow disruption.

As you can see with the picture above, the deck gives you different options with how you want to do your builds. The wide bore drip tip and the simple airflow control is also a worthy mention.

Height: 14.5mm

Diameter: 22mm

Juice well: 3.5mm

2. HOBO V3.1 RDA

This might be one of the better deals here on the list. The Hobo V3.1 comes with two types of drip tips which are the standard and the adjustable competition wide bore drip cap. A good choice for vapers who aren’t fans of wide bore dip tips.

The two post configuration is supposed to make building easier. You can tell by the pictures alone that the big 3mm holes on the posts are geared towards vapers that are into twisted wires.

Airflow slots: 7mm x 1mm

Diameter: 22mm

Juice well: 5mm

poker face rda 1


The cube styled Poker Face RDA is another good mention of mini mods that gathered positive reviews online. It certainly is the most unique RDA due to its shape.

The 4 post deck is similar to that of the Orchid tank except much better built. I loved the Orchid tank but the center post’s peek insulator kept melting on me. The copper pin connector makes the Hobo a hard hitter.

Airflow slots: 10mm

Diameter: 22mm

Juice well: 4mm

snubnose rda 2


Just like its namesake, the Snubnose RDA is a small but powerful piece of vape weaponry. This three piece RDA has the most engravings on it compared to the others that made the list. The three post configuration gives you the ability to work with a variety of builds. It also has a copper contact that gives this mini RDA some serious power.

Another reason to get this RDA is it comes in different finishes. Brass, gun metal, copper and polished. The engravings are cool to look at too.

Height: 30mm

Diameter: 22mm

royal hunter rda 1


The Royal Hunter RDA finishes the list, a very well made mini RDA dedicated to cloud chasing. The silver T positive post gives the user different options on what he wants to build whether it’s dual or single coil configurations. It also gives maximum conductivity.

The honycomb protection is there to prevent spit-back, another innovation many RDA makers are doing. For those of you who don’t like wide bore drip tips. the Royal Hunter comes with a 510 drip tip adapter to fix this problem.

Former smoker turned vaper since 2013. I blog about questions that I and others might have about vaping. All I can say is it's a better alternative to cigarettes, nicotine gum, patches or medication, no matter what the Big Tobacco backed media says!

  1. Great players on the mini RDA field, love the article.

    I also wanted to mention that the smaller RDA to date is the Mikro by Adler Industries of only 8 mm tall, and it has an interesting post design as well.

    The next up in the scale is the Lepton RDA by Emperor Vap’East at 9 mm tall, in a 3 post design.

    Then we have a couple of small ones like the Derringer from Praxis Vapors, which I believe was the first small RDA at 17 mm or so, followed by the Bambino by JayBo (TOBH) which got inspiration from the Derringer.

    There’s also a couple more like the Vertex Jr by The Boss Mod, the Samurai Bonzai by the Cloud Society, the Mutation XS by Indulgence (Mutation X V4 minified), and there’s even a Royal Hunter Mini, Freakshow Mini, Mini Madhatter, Mini Haze… the list of small RDA’s is actually big.

    Great article, waiting to see the next one.

    1. Hey Eduardo, thanks for the comment and the additional info on mini rdas. I had fun doing the article but I admit I was only scratching the surface with minis.
      Thanks to you, I’ll do a follow up on this article soon.


  2. All of these are on my radar, except the Royal Hunter, it was ok, but performance wise, it didn’t do it for me. This was a great article though, and opened my eyes a little more to the mini rdas. Thank you. 🙂
