With a vast collection available, how do I know which craft is best for my application?

When building an RTA, there is always one characteristic that's overlooked in recommendations; heat retention.

Any craft that's high in mass will require a lot of power to heat, and takes more time to get to temperature. If it takes a while to get to temperature, it subsequently takes a while to cool, thus has higher heat retention. 

This is particularly unfavourable in reduced-chamber atomisers as, well, you've a reduced chamber. Your chamber is, essentially, a permeable partition between your deck and tank, which means your liquid will discolour and wicks will continue to cook after you've released the "Fire" button. Eliminating these two hostile and destructive oddities simply means more time between a wick change, and your build remains flavourful and reliable. Cheers, science!

So, with our methods explained, our 3mm Series Aliens or Fused Claptons come first in our recommendations here; ultra-low mass, easy install, unequivocally vast power curves, and boundless performance. Remove a wrap from our Series Aliens if you're feeling saucy. If it's a lower resistance you're wanting, Framed Staples and our super-efficient Quad-core Aliens. Job job. 


Featuring the smallest atomisers of the industry, it's crucial that we scale your build accordingly. Big coils are a no-no here. Imagine maniacally stuffing the heart of an elephant into a dormouse - you may feel like you're filling the real-estate within, but considering the total area of the chamber, and even the thickness of the materials is imperative. See the above paragraph - this applies here, too.

With this, smaller crafts hold pervasive benefits; not only do they help your wicks last longer (as discussed above), thus reducing the frequency of the chore that is maintenance, they also hold the ability to eliminate condensation within the atomiser. This, again, increases the lifespan of your wicks. 


Our Nano Aliens are a fantastic option for MTL and RDL, not just because of their resistance or size, but ultra-low mass. Our Billet coils are perfect for any Boro bridge or AIO device, such as the Dot, as an RDL/DL draw. If it's wide-open airflow and 0.2 Ohms you enjoy, sell your AIO and get an RTA. An ulterior beneficiary with the aforementioned crafts is increased battery life!
Again, resistance isn't important here - all this will tell you is how many amps you're pulling from your cells. If you're using high-nic liquid, Nano Aliens. Mid-low, Billet. 


Ultimately, anything goes in this application.
Quad-core Aliens and SFCs have long been our favourite in this case - immense flavour and painless maintenance, all with a homely crackle when firing.

This one really is open to interpretation, but you can narrow this down by taking advantage of either our Classic and Advanced Packs, each providing an outstanding experience - just remember to leave a note at the checkout for us asking for your crafts to be tailored to suit a specific orientation or atomiser. Bish, bash, and bosh.
