NCR Nicotine Reinforcer Preview | Heating Element With No Coil

NCR Nicotine Reinforcer intro

As a relatively new industry, vaping is subject to constant changes. Consistent research and innovation within this market has seen vape devices and atomizers change shape and form over the years.

The NCR Nicotine Reinforcer RDA is a dramatic departure from traditional designs. It has the distinction of being one of the first of its kind. So, what makes this RDA so unique? Here is a first look at exactly what this design has to offer…

Retail Price: $41 – $60

Color: White

We have been informed that heating up and inhaling on SST aluminum nitride (the material used on the NCR’s heating block) may pose unnecessary health risks. In light of these reports, we strongly advise against purchasing/using the NCR RDA.

The new kid on the block


When it comes to tank atomizers, there are many distinctive varieties; with designs suited to all vaping styles. Yet, typically what they all have in common is the use of a metal heating element that vaporizes ejuice, which has soaked into a cotton wick.

The NCR Nicotine Reinforcer RDA is one of the first rebuildable tank atomizers to revolutionize the standard wick and coil setup. It’s based on a similar design as the Altus Tank by Guo where the atomizer is completely coil free. Instead, the deck is fitted with a ceramic WAFER heater that slots into the middle of the base. The heater actually heats up the eliquid instead of the coil, and thus still requires a cotton wicking material. Moreover, the heater has a lifetime of 600,000 cycles and is built to deliver a resistance output of 0.4 to 0.5 Ohms.

A revolutionary self-cleaning, coil-less dripping atomizer.

The atomizer’s frosted, top cap includes small venting holes near the base for necessary cooling, but is otherwise unremarkable and notably plain and simple.

At this stage, little else is known about the performance or usability of this design as it has yet to reach reviewers. Nonetheless, it is an interesting and imaginative concept that could be a hit amongst non-building, dripping enthusiasts. Either way, we can’t wait to see how it measures up in practice! Is anyone else excited for its release? Will the Nicotine Reinforcer RDA will be a game changer?

A marketing manager by day and an avid reader - and vaper - by night, I came into the vape scene almost by accident and have never looked back. You will find me in sunny South Africa where I am mostly always curled up on the couch with a good book and a fruity vape. At other times, I am known to indulge my unhealthy obsession with musical theatre and live comedy shows, in that order.

I bought a new one NCR RDA, when i put in my Paranormal Dna 166 mod, its not working coz the ohms is to high..! Is there any solution how to solve these? Thank u


I’m not sure about the safety aspects of any of the materials being used (ceramic, aluminum, unobtanium and whatever else) but the overall concept is pretty cool. Success or fail, I’m glad to see manufacturers trying to come up with new and convenient ways for people to quit smoking.

I agree with your perspective.


Cool idea, but ceramic kills you. Hard pass.


Please explain in detail.


Please do your own research, or pay me.

You’re welcome.


So you don’t know what you’re talking about. I figured as much.

Robin Bartels

No need for being rude. Both of you. Uwell did a research on how dangerous ceramic coils can be. You can read it here


Maybe just a little conflict of interest on uwells part, as they make about 50% of the coils for china manufacturers and also produce their own non-ceramic coils? Just sayin, theres nothing scientific about the “research” they put out


Please, do the world a favor. Use only ceramic coils.


I’m not sure that aluminum is a great choice for a coil, seeing as how inhaling vapor off of hot aluminum can cause neural damage…


L’il more worried about the ceramic if it flakes at all. Interesting concept tho.
