An atomizer known as an RDA or dripping atomizer is designed for use with thick juices which are dripped onto the atomizer deck a little at a time. You don’t fill a tank and keep puffing until the liquid runs out. RDA liquids are known to be generally thick owing to their high percentage of vegetable glycerin(high VG).
They are perfect for use with sub ohm mods like the SMOK Alien or VaporShark DNA. Tank atomizers with sub-ohm capacity were also designed for this purpose. How do you spot a good dripping or cloud chasing e-juice from the hundreds of available labels?
Top RDA Juices
Everyone’s list is a little bit different from everyone else’s but it’s likely your top 10 would not include liquids made by mini cig companies (except maybe Halo Purity or Apollo), cheap single-flavor blends from your e cig vendor, or Chinese juice.
Overall, you can expect a gourmet liquid to be ideal for dripping and any juice which is mostly sweet could be a good fit for this purpose too.
Expect a lot of e-juices for dripping to contain cream, custard, or baked goods in the profile, and even alcohol flavors too. VG carries the sweetness of a flavor better than PG but isn’t as great for getting that hit at the back of your throat which is associated with tobacco styles and propylene glycol.
Gourmet finds include Space Jam, Cosmic Fog, Gemini, Alice in Vapeland, and Five Pawns. There are loads of others too: Villain Vapors, Ruckus, and Kind E-Juice are just a few other options out of dozens.
Best E Juice For Dripping and Cloud Chasing
Firebrand’s regular line has been given quite a boost by a selection of eight high-VG flavors of which one, surprisingly, are tobacco varieties. We see this too rarely in the gourmet side of the industry, so it’s great when someone embraces the traditional, comforting flavors of pipe tobacco et al. You will find tobacco in Crixus, a nutty style of e juice.
Daredevil is a lot like Carnage by ANML, another great dripping juice. Their other flavor is Looper: similar to a fruity breakfast cereal. Both of them feature carnivorous beasts on their labels and there is hope they will come up with something new in the near future.
At CRFT, they are only interested in high-quality ingredients and come up with unique mixtures like Trail Mix. This one really tastes like seeds, nuts, and fruit. Their Strawberry Blonde is another winner bringing to mind thoughts of creamy strawberry.
At Namber, they came up with the Epiclouds line developed specially for cloud chasers. Pick up strawberry candy (Strawberry Circus) or Doughnut Pounder (glazed donut). Try the unique Glacier Banana in which you will discover what happens when menthol and banana unite.
At The Standard, vapologists like to keep their clients in the dark. You don’t even know what you are getting with some flavors. It takes a few brave souls to try out juices and report their findings in reviews. Alternatively, you could wind up with one of the mystery types in your subscription box. If so, see this as an opportunity to venture into the unknown. As for Tater, that’s a chocolate style unlike anything your mini cig cartomizer refill could ever produce. Do you like Banana without menthol? Curious Jorge would be just the ticket.
Cream-based juices are meant to be thick on your palate as though you really are drinking cream. The skill required to create this impression is impressive and they have lots of skill over and over at Vaping Birdy. Try an Empress Penguin or an Emperor Penguin. The Emperor is straight-up condensed milk. His Empress, being sweeter and more feminine, adds strawberries to hers. Bald Eagle blends toffee, chocolate, and coffee into a rich, bold e liquid. Try Crème a la Vanille or, in English, vanilla cream.
Melon Boba, Sour Burma, and Baja Breeze are all fruity, but they do not lack anything when it comes to clouds. At Goodlife, they also create several tobacco e juices so the tobacco fan doesn’t have to give up his favorite flavor to enjoy clouds. He can enjoy the best of both worlds.
Here is one of the most widely acclaimed e juices in the country, but not one carried by the same huge list of vendors as, say, Five Pawns. A frustrating lack of local supply might mean you have not tried this vapor juice before, but Adirondack makes excellent fruity e liquid that is well worth saving for a special occasion (like launching or adding a new box mod to your collection).
Spotting Good Juice
Making clouds is something you can do with any device using any juice, but some are wispy and some are meteorological phenomena. It is always best to go with a juice that has a high level of vegetable glycerin so your clouds are sure to thicken up no matter what type of mod you use from eGo to 50W box.
Several companies supply dripping lines side-by-side with their regular e juices. VaporFi, for instance, has created their Artisan e juice for this purpose and to cater to a cloud-chasing audience. These clients would probably be using the Rebel II tube mod or Vox.
Charlie Noble’s Admiral’s Reserve was made for this purpose and some entire brands are devoted to the sub-ohm culture. The label will indicate that this is a dripping juice or perfect for RDAs. Velvet Vapors offers the choice: select natural, regular, or vegetable glycerin e liquids. Most of their flavors are available in any format.
A number of companies provide custom juice blending and the option to change your propylene glycol (PG)/vegetable glycerin (VG) base. Indicate if you want all PG, Max-VG, or a level in-between. Expect RDA e liquids to be bottled in glass, to be made in smaller batches than the usual stuff, and to cost a bit more than regular liquids. If you paid about $12 for 15 ml, that’s average.

From one vape store to another the definition of “starter kits” differs. At online cigalike shops such as Green Smoke, White Cloud, and South Beach Smoke these refer to kits for beginners; people who are literally just starting to vape. They might have barely given up cigarettes or still be smoking some of the time. At other stores these refer to kits which help a person get started with any sort of device, so they have all or at least some of the equipment required to operate and recharge a vaporizer at any level. Here are some configurations you could find.
This is the real newbie’s first set and it has to come with three things: a USB charger, a battery, and flavor cartridges. When you first start out, a starter set is also a guide to vaping, in a sense. You know that if stuff is in the box you are expected to use it somehow whereas later, when you know what you’re doing, some things go without saying.
Certain people would also say that a beginners’ kit should come with a second battery and an AC adapter and that a real starter kit contains at least 5 cartridges. You don’t really get a feel for what vaping is like and how convenient it can be without the second battery which provides a chance to learn timing and preparation. When your 3- or 4-hour battery runs out, you realize how much you need battery number 2.
You should probably go for a kit with at least 5 (but preferably 10) cartridges since they are used up so quickly. Some bundles also contain a case, a portable charging device, and a lanyard; a car charging adapter, perhaps a USB e cig, or maybe a disposable electronic cigarette. Couples’ kits simply double all of the basic equipment so two people can learn to vape side-by-side.
Prices for all of this gear vary so widely and customer preferences are so different it is hard to nail down the best price. V2 Cigs provides numerous options including a set that comes with refillable cartridges or tanks plus e juice. Halo provides one of the best value kits for their G6 and a lot of colors plus the option to select refillable cartridges, but juice is extra (though high quality and inexpensive). Smokeless Image probably sells the cheapest sets around. A few other brands of note include Vaporfi, Fin, 21st Century Smoke, and Vapor4Life.
An eGo cigarette goes beyond cigalikes to provide many hours of vaping per charge. Instead of recharging three or four times daily, a person can probably manage to recharge just once around midday with a 650-mAh eGo battery.
You might get away with just one battery and a single tank in this case as long as recharging can be done while you continue to vape, but that’s not always the case. You could revert to your cigalike while recharging an eGo. Many people do. There are also 1100-mAh sets plus several containing variable voltage e cigs and lots of color choices.
Top-value eGo starter kits are packaged in a zipper case with a syringe or dripper bottle for easily refilling the clearomizer also included. Usually, if there are two batteries, two clearomizers are also in this package plus a USB charging cable. The addition of a bottle of e juice sweetens the deal. Halo’s Triton is a good example. The Kanger EVOD and Joyetech eGo are two more. Vaporfi supplies the Pro series as their eGo offering.
Clearomizers could be disposable or come with replaceable atomizer heads. They have built-in or removable drip tips and are usually made from polycarbonate rather than glass. Their single coil configuration is best used with low-viscosity e juice (high-propylene glycol) and flavors that don’t crack or cloud tanks such as low-acid fruit flavors, some desserts, tobacco, and light menthol.
While vapers might turn to an eGo as their first electronic cigarette in preference to the dainty cigalike, they are unlikely to choose an Advanced Personal Vaporizer (APV) as their first step. In spite of that fact, vape shops and manufacturers will still refer to their advanced “starter kits” in order to indicate that you are not only buying a battery; you buy a whole package here which is why the price is higher.
In this kit you do not need a second battery since the 1100-, 1300-, or 2200-mAh battery will remain charged for an entire day if you remember to replenish it overnight. The battery should be bundled with a clear or glass tank capable of low but not sub-ohm resistance plus some extra atomizer heads, a USB cable, maybe a case, and possibly some e juice for good measure.
Really Advanced Starter Kits
Often these are referred to as “mini kits” comprised of the smallest versions of certain hardware. Examples are the Kanger Subox Mini Kit with their small tank. These kits contain a vaporizer base and battery, if that is not already built in, plus a cable and a tank. A few kits are comprised of all-in-one vaporizers (battery base and tank). Many other kits are just the vaporizer plus a battery and a USB cable without a tank. At this level, e juice is rarely included although some shops encourage vendors to customize their own kits to include adapters, extra tanks, spare parts, and e liquid.
Starter Kit Savings
Another reason people buy starter kits, besides convenience, is that they usually save money. Whether you just started, have picked up your first eGo, are on to adjustable airflow tanks, or are into sub-ohm cloud chasing mods, a kit costs less than individual parts bought all at once or over time. Not only is shipping added to small orders in most cases (you get free shipping at a threshold of $50 to $100) but a discount is applied to bundles automatically.
