Smkon RVTA preview | A new vertical-coil RTA

The Smkon RVTA is a 25mm rebuildable-tank atomizer that's the first of it's kind.


Smkon… Smkoff?

Ok, let’s get this out of the way first and foremost. The company’s name is Smkon, similar to SMOK. That being said, the tank has a “cloud beast” vibe going on. However, the Smkon RVTA caught my eye, especially since I haven’t ever heard the term “RVTA” before. Well, until now….

Smkon may not be the most unique when it comes to branding, hell, they may not even be that proficient at English, but they just might actually have something special on their hands. If the vertical-coil deck proves to be superior to a standard one, then this could be a game changer…

Forbid the Phlegma Suck-back


Yes. The title of this section is literally taken verbatim from the website, next to the big and beautiful images of the Smkon RVTA. Don’t ask what it means, but if I had to guess, I would say it’s something that prevents spit-back. Very often these things can get lost in translation…

In any case, this dual-juice chamber system is another feature that makes this device stand out. This combined with those vertical coils just might make for a tasty, smooth and enjoyable vape. Last but not least, you gotta love the little skull with wings design that the tank has going on.

Game changer or gimmick?


The Smkon RVTA is 25mm in diameter and can hold 6mL of juice. You have a top-fill design with nice big juice ports and a deck that can be described as a sideways velocity-style deck. It seems like it would be fairly easy to build on and the top fill is supposedly quick and painless.

One last notable feature is the way the coil is directly exposed by the airflow path which should have a positive impact on both flavor and vapor production. We won’t know until we try it out. What do you think about the Smkon RVTA? Is it a game changer, or just another gimmick?

      @nathandematteis:disqus Thanks, I stand corrected. Was not aware of that particular RTA.

      And technically speaking, genesis atomizers are of course RTAs and they use vertical coils.
