Uwell gets into the RTA game

The Uwell D2 is the company’s foray into the world of rebuildable tank atomizers (RTAs). Uwell is known for its excellent sub-ohm tanks, such as the Crown and the Crown 2. Several Vaping360 staffers are gaga over these tanks, myself included. With that in mind, I was excited to learn about the Uwell D2. It has a pair of unique features that help intensify flavor, but shouldn’t be a slouch in the vapor department either. Here’s a closer look.

The Uwell D2’s double-walled glass tube is something I haven’t seen in a vaping product before. Air flows from the top of the tank through the space between the glass before hitting the coils. The novel design contributes to the Uwell D2’s flavor production and makes it extremely leak-resistant.

Adding to the intense flavor production is the Uwell D2’s unusually narrow chimney. While reduced flavor chambers are common in both RDAs and RTAs, I am unaware of any mass-market tanks that feature a reduced chamber paired with a narrow-bore chimney. When you add it all up, this RTA should produce brilliant flavor.

Aesthetically, the Uwell D2 resembles the company’s other 2016 products. It has an understated and classy design that I’m a huge fan of. Normally, I abhor knurling, but the company does in such a subtle way that I actually like how it looks on the D2. The atomizer is available in four different matte finishes — stainless steel, black, coffee, and iridescent black. The first two are standard choices that will match mosts mods, while the latter two are great for people that want something a little flashier.

Your thoughts on the Uwell D2 RTA

As a big fan of Uwell, I’m already sold on the D2 RTA. The company’s products have served me extremely well for the last year or so and I’m excited to see what it can bring to the RTA space. As a vaper that prioritizes flavor over vapor, this tank seems right in my wheelhouse.

How about you guys and gals? What do you think of the Uwell D2? Are you intrigued by its top-airflow, double-walled glass design? Or are you more concerned about blowing huge clouds? Please vote in the poll below and share your thoughts in the comments section.
