The Ubertoot UTA2 is one of the most sought after unicorn(hard to get) RTAs there is. Good luck finding one, and if you do it will cost an arm and a leg. Finally there is a clone worth owning that will give you the awesome vape experience that this design is known for. So what makes it so good?
This RTA was/is ahead of it’s time, it has so many features that many others are just offering now. The Ubertoot is about a year old by now and it boggles our mind as to why we haven’t seen more produced or a new revision released. It’s a MTL (mouth to lung) hit but if you build it right you can get a pretty awesome long haul direct lung hit. We think the popularity is caused by this attys draw and flavour, it’s one of the closest to an actual cigarette.
Flavour is very good, there are lots of subtleties brought out of your juices. It’s thanks to the very condensed vapor chamber and very tight chimney (half the diameter of most). The fact you can haul on this for a long time also helps with vapor condensing more and more over time, the flavour just keeps building.
Building is very very easy. It’s a two post design, you simple place your coil (single only), set it just above the airflow and forget it. We have found that spaced coils are what give you the direct lung hit ability. 26ga 4-6 wrap at 2.5 or 3mm is all you need. We like to run it around 0.5-0.6 Ohms at 24-28W, it’s a slightly warm luscious vape. This is strictly a Flavourchaser so forget about clouds on this one. The included building base is a rather nice touch.
Wicking is also ridiculously easy. Place the first of two rings over your build deck, feed the cotton through, fluff it so it fills the height of the juice flow openings, place the second out ring and tighten it down. finally trim your wick so they are just peaking out. Watch the build video we have linked to, it makes it all crystal clear. You will know when it’s time for a wick change, it will start gurgling slightly as the cotton breaks down and lets too much juice into the chamber (it can last a full 30ml of 6 tanks before it needs it).
As for juice flow control, it is accomplished by how wide you set your juice openings when tightening down the vapor chamber, we set ours with a slight resistance on the cotton (about 2/3 rds closed). We haven’t had a single dry hit or any trouble with MaxVg juices.
Airflow as we have mentioned is rather restricted, we leave it wide open (not that it’s that wide). Think of it like a draw on almost any other RTA with their AFC barely open. You will learn to love this draw, it’s so tasty and savoury, sometimes it’s nice to take a break from intense cloud producing attys.
Filling is one of the old school methods, unscrew the tank upside down and fill just before the top of the chimney. The threads as butter smooth and the tank design had an extra lip that helps guide them home. We run the 5ml tank which makes the atty rather tall but it lasts a couple of hours.
The Ubertoot UTA2 is all it’s cracked up to be. The design thinking is just mind-blowing, it’s unique and functions beautifully. There are so many details you will learn to appreciate and love. We dig the design aesthetic, it has a rather industrial flair going on (lots of knurled surfaces). At $30 to try/own a unicorn design it’s an absolute no brainer!
Try the clone, if you love it, buy the authentic.
