The Split atty is a great name for Drip n Vape’s atty. It’s hard to decide if it’s an RDTA, an RDA, or an RTA. What ever it is, it vapes pretty damn great and tastes damn good too. Oh and it looks pretty dope and has a really small footprint.
It’s one sleek looking number. All the right curves in the right places. It’s nice and clean with an integrated AFC with the adjustment ring on the inside of the top cap. The threaded chuff top feels great in the mouth and there is surprisingly no spit back what so ever. It’s crazy for how close your lips and mouth are to the coils. And being this close is what gives some pretty great flavour. The chamber is super condensed and produces some great vapor density. Got to give it to the designer, this is a unique design that bridges the gaps between an RDA, an RDTA or RTA. It has a tiny tank below the build deck that feeds the wicks super well, there is a problem though, there is no fill port. So if you want to use it regularly get used to carrying around a 10ml needle nose bottle, it is the best way to refill the tank. The Split is pretty popular on the squonking scene and the included BF pin (clone has it too) helps solve this refilling issue, even though it’s a bit weird to squonk to refill a tank on the atty (rather than just saturating your coils). It’s a tiny little thing too, making it look great on just about anything.
Flavour is good, even when rocking the chuff cap. It produces a nice warm vape at no matter what AFC setting you choose. Nothing to crazy, really just right. The Split behaves like a Genesis atty and each time you tilt toward your mouth you saturate your coils perfectly. It wicks extremely well.
Airflow is pretty perfect, a nice restricted draw fully open, just the way we like it about 2/3 open on the AFC. The AFC ring sits inside the top cap and is adjusted by sticking your finger up in there and twisting it to the desired setting. It holds it well, but once condensation gets in there it can be a bit of a pain to get moving if you are in the middle of a session and want to make an adjustment.
Building is easy but tight, it’s a small deck. You won’t get much over a 2.5mm coil in there. The centre post and outer flathead negative screws do their job well. We like a simple spaced, 2.5mm, 6 wrap, dual KA1 build coming in at 0.3 Ohms and run 45-50W. It’s a great vape. Set you wicks to hang about half way to the bottom of the tank and don’t make them too thick so they don’t choke off the wicking. They are easy to set, but again they don’t leave much room for filling.
The Split is a sexy looking little atty that performs well. It has it’s issues though, filling is a bit of a pain and we have had some issue with fitting the top cap, sometimes it needs a twisting action to get it seated right (could be just a clone issue, the o-rings on the authentic are most likely better quality). In the end, we recommend this atty, especially if you dig its looks. If you have the cash, go for the authentic, it’s a great design with lots of flexibility (Single coil builds with a chamber reducer, dual builds, BF pin for squonking, chuff or regular 510 drip tip action, etc…).
