Wotofo Troll V2 Intro
The Troll v2 is the latest RDA from Wotofo and the second iteration of the popular Troll RDA. This time around, it comes with a Velocity-style deck instead of a split center-post, provides an alternate airflow configuration and has a massive juice well. It’s a pretty simple and straightforward RDA and sometimes that is great. Let’s see if it’s simplicity is a gift or a curse.

Machining/Fit and Finish
The machining on the Troll v2 is pretty good, certainly on par with other atomizers in this price range. It’s nice to see that Wotofo has stepped up their machining to match the quality Vaping360 has seen from Geek Vape. There are no burrs to be found and the atomizer doesn’t feel cheap in the hand. Unlike some other Velocity-style decks in this price range, neither of the posts lean to the side and stand perfectly vertical as far my eye can tell. The o-ring tolerances on the other hand are pretty tight making it pretty difficult to take the outer barrel and airflow controller out for re-dripping. Fortunately, the included drip tips are wide enough to allow for easy dripping, but have your rubber gloves handy when it comes time to rebuild it, you’re going to need them.
The build deck is a typical Velocity-style two-post deck with large 2.7 mm post-holes. Not much else to say here since we’ve all seen this deck around for quite some time, it has replaced most of the three-post and split center-post decks for the most part.
Ease of Build
As expected with any Velocity-style deck, it is very easy to build on and can fit some pretty large diameter wire since each lead has it’s own hole. No lead bending is required since there are two holes oriented vertically in each post. It really seems like the Velocity-style deck has become the new standard. It goes without saying, but I definitely prefer this deck over the original’s split center-post deck.
The juice well is 10 mm deep and holds a ton of juice. It eliminates the need for constant dripping and can be considered a drip-and-go atomizer. In order to get my nicotine fix, I only need to drip twice per session which is pretty convenient. The wide bore drip tips allow for such easy dripping that you can literally do it while walking. As a matter of fact, I don’t even really drip, I just squirt an entire droppers worth of juice in it and call it good. Be careful though, even though the juice well is deep and holds a lot, if you tilt your mod when it’s full, it will most likely leak. On several occasions I had juice run down the side of my mod.
Airflow and Controller
The airflow controller is pretty straightforward but also provides a fair amount of options. There are two diamond-shaped cutouts in the outer sleeve and the slots are cut into the inner sleeve. You can choose between three offset horizontal slots or three diagonal slots and in each configuration, you can adjust the airflow by turning the top cap section which rotates the inner sleeve. When you close down the diagonal slots, you can choose a setting anywhere between zero and three open slots. When closing down the horizontal slots, there will always be three vertically-oriented slots offset in a diagonal fashion, but the length of each slot can be controlled.
The draw is smooth with plenty airflow. Wide open, there is very little restriction and will satisfy almost every cloud chaser out there. It can also be closed down for a restricted lung hit, but not enough to achieve what I would consider a mouth-to-lung draw. That is fine though because this atomizer isn’t geared towards mouth-to-lung vapers.
This is definitely the worst part of this atomizer for me, I cannot stand that hideous troll face engraved on the side; it just looks ridiculous. I know that is totally subjective, but if it didn’t have that engraving, I would’ve most likely bought one for myself had I not gotten it for free for this review. Troll face aside, I think everything else looks pretty nice. It’s tall, but not obnoxiously tall like the CLT4 RDA and the shorter stainless steel drip tip has the right width-to-height ratio to give it a nice proportional aesthetic.
This is where this atomizer really gets me, I was not expecting it to perform this good. Don’t get me wrong, the flavor isn’t on the same level as a high end atomizer with a small chamber and a tight draw, but for what it is, the flavor quality caught me off guard. It’s not quite as good as the Tsunami, but it’s close. I built it with the included twisted coils in a dual coil configuration with 6.5 spaced wraps around a 3mm screwdriver. I placed the coils so they were as close to the airflow as possible and centered with the middle horizontal slot. Firing this at 64 watts, the vape was dense and the flavor was certainly above average. I found the horizontal slots give off a little bit more flavor and the diagonal slots produce larger clouds.
- Good flavor
- Good vapor production
- Easy to build
- Deep juice well
- Comes with a comfortable standard drip tip as well as chuff cap
- Hybrid mod compatible center pin
- No single coil option
- Not very leak resistant
- O-ring tolerances are really tight
- The troll face engraving looks pretty dumb
The Troll v2 is a nice upgrade from the original with it’s new airflow options, Velocity-style posts and the 10mm deep juice well. The performance and quality is certainly worth the asking price, but you might be wondering whether this atomizer is for you. If you’re looking for something that puts out incredible flavor or want a new competition atomizer, this isn’t for you. However, if you want something affordable that is easy to build, holds a ton of juice, puts out above average flavor and clouds, this might be the one to look at; if you can get past that horrid troll face engraving.
