Familiar and Focused
The Aria Terminus RDA is the latest product in Beyond Vape’s premium Aria line. It was inspired by the 528 Customs Goon — one of the most popular 2016 RDAs among enthusiast vapers — but adds several notable improvements. It has a lot of versatility, it’s very easy to work with, and it comes at an affordable price. Here’s a closer look at the Aria Terminus.

For vapers that dig colored atomizers, but are worried about paint — don’t be.

Great Features, Low Price
For a relatively low price, the Aria Terminus brings a lot to the table. Let’s start with the deck. Like the Goon, it uses plates to secure coils. The major difference is that it uses one screw per terminal, as opposed to two screws per terminal on the Goon. Using one screw per terminal creates four distinct slots, which makes precise coil spacing easier to achieve. Additionally, the hybrid screws can be manipulated with both a flat-head and a Phillips-head screwdriver.
The airflow control is also superior. The Aria Terminus features two large slits for airflow vs. three holes on the Goon. The slits allow for a finer degree of airflow adjustment. The sleeve is set up to work with both single-coil and dual-coil builds.
Aesthetically, the Aria Terminus is a very handsome atomizer. The lines are smooth and the branding isn’t loud. I was particularly fond of the rose gold and gunmetal finishes.
The six millimeter juice well allows you to take ample puffs before having to re-drip. The gold plating on the terminals and positive pin ensure strong conductivity while resisting corrosion. While I like the look and feel of the wide-bore top-cap, vapers that want to use their own 510 drip tip have that option with the second top cap. Between these features, as well as the aforementioned deck and airflow control, it’s like I said at the top of this section — the Aria Terminus brings a lot to the table.
The Aria Terminus looks fantastic and is easy to work with. It offers great versatility and ample features, which should combine for a superior vaping experience. Best of all, it comes at a very reasonable price. What do you ladies and gentlemen think of this RDA? Please leave a comment below and let me know.
