Conqueror RTA Intro
The Conqueror is the exciting new dual coil postless RTA from Wotofo. Wotofo (a Chinese company) has earned a reputation for bringing vapers innovative, well-made and affordable products. From the same makers that brought us the Serpent RTA, let’s take a look at what Wotofo has brought to the table with the Conqueror RTA.

Machining/Fit and Finish
Just like previous Wotofo products I’ve bought, the Conqueror is very well machined. The threads are all buttery smooth. The airflow control (AFC) ring turns smoothly, but stays where I set it. The outside finish is free or scratches or marks. My particular unit has a very difficult to turn juice control dial, but I could not find anyone else reporting this issue. Overall, this is a beautifully made atty for the price, and I can’t complain.
Build Deck and Ease of Build
The build deck of the Conqueror is perhaps its most intriguing feature. It is a native dual coil, postless design. Coils are inserted into 2 mm holes in the deck, and secured by grub screws located on the sides of the base. One must take care to trim coil leads to an appropriate length. Too short and your coil will short circuit on the raised airholes. Too long and your coils will short circuit on the top of the chimney chamber. Due to the extra care with coiling, the Conqueror may be best suited to intermediate to advanced builders. You can fit some pretty long coils in the spacious deck, however, and the wicking is a snap. I cut my wick tails short, and folded the tails to the bottom of the deck, right behind each wick slot. Running your tails through the slots will likely lead to dry hits.
Airflow and Controller
The airflow of the Conqueror is operated via a dual adjustable airflow control ring located at the bottom of the atty. Each slot has six 2 mm holes. The range of airflow may satisfy mouth to lung (M2L) vapers when turned down up to a slightly restricted direct lung (D2L) hit. One positive I noted on the six-hole design over the open slot of Wotofo’s Serpent is that it’s less inclined to produce vapor spittle on my mods. I still get a bit, but it’s a definite improvement!
The Conqueror features a metal sleeve over the glass tube with two trapezoidal windows. One is near the top to aid in filling. The window on the opposite side is near the bottom, and shows the user how far the juice control is open, as well as when it’s time to refill. The look is unique, and some will be fans while others will feel it’s unattractive. I personally appreciate the simple, sleek appearance.
The Conqueror has two reasonably sized top fill slots. Filling should be more straight forward, though, than it actually is. Close the juice control, remove the top cap, fill, open juice control, right? Well, it’s not quite so simple, unfortunately. Unlike the Serpent, Wotofo chose to make the dial for the juice control the same diameter as the top cap. Possibly my issues are due to the difficulty with turning my juice control dial, but I have had problems unscrewing my top cap without the juice control opening back up with it. Likewise, once I’m filled and try to open my juice control, the top cap unscrews, which may lead to flooding. I have been leaving my juice control open now and just filling quickly to avoid the issue. Thankfully I’ve been able to fill this way without any leaking or flooding. I think Wotofo should have either kept the same type of smaller diameter top cap the Serpent has, or they should have made the Conqueror’s top cap thicker to make filling easier.
I do have to give the Conqueror a huge thumbs up for flavor! It is quite the incredible RTA for thick, tasty clouds, and I feel that is its primary recommendation. Don’t get me wrong, it produces a nice cloud as expected from today’s dual coil RTAs, but this is an atty for flavor chasers primarily.
- Innovative build deck
- Ability to fit Clapton coils
- Ease of wicking
- Excellent machining
- Juice control/top cap difficulties when filling
- May be difficult to coil for some
- No ability to replace the glass if it breaks
The Wotofo Conqueror is a knockout flavor-producing RTA with a unique and interesting deck. I think it’s an excellent choice for the price for intermediate to advanced builders, but beginners should heed some caution. As always, though, I’ve met some determined new builders who won’t shy away from the challenge, and if you are one, it may be worth your consideration.
