Design & Build Quality: Dead Rabbit RDA ReviewDead Rabbit Design and Build Quality

The Dead Rabbit RDA is manufactured from 304 stainless steel and comes in a wide variety of colors. The paint used to coat the RDA is great quality and has held up well after weeks of use, with no signs of chipping or flaking.

Now, this RDA is already pretty, but with the included resin drip tip it looks even better. If that’s not your style, the Dead Rabbit also comes included with a black 810 delrin drip tip and 510 drip tip adapter so that you can use whichever drip tip you’re most comfortable with.

Engraved on one side of the RDA is a large Dead Rabbit logo, and there are two, well-machined, long airflow slots on the barrel. The airflow is adjustable by turning the knurled top cap, but we found it more than a little difficult to turn. You have to really use some force to turn the top cap and adjust the airflow, and that’s one thing we didn’t like. If it was a little easier to adjust, it would of been perfect.

Now, what’s unique about the airflow on the Dead Rabbit is that the airflow slots in the top cap are downward slanted. This means a more controlled airflow going straight to your coils when you inhale, and thus a more intense flavor. This downward slanted airflow is one of the main reasons why the Dead Rabbit delivers such stunning flavor and smooth draws, and can be adjusted for either single or dual slot airflow mode depending on your preference.

The build deck in the Dead Rabbit RDA features four posts with a single terminal per post and has gold plated positive posts and plain stainless steel negative posts. The rabbit ear design of the posts is not only stylish, but also practical. Because of this design, you’re able to easily insert your leads from the top and secure them from the sides. After securing your coils, you simply trim your leads from the bottom.

In the center of the Dead Rabbit’s deck is a squonk block, which will disperse your ejuice evenly when using the included 510 bottom feeding squonk pin and a squonk mod. The 5mm deep juice well can hold a lot of juice and this means less time having to drip, and less chances of over-squonking or over-dripping. In our whole time of using and testing the Dead Rabbit RDA, we’ve only experienced leaking once — and it was due to the coils being too close to the airflow slots.

Building on the Dead Rabbit RDABuilding on the Dead Rabbit RDA Review

Building on the Dead Rabbit is easy and painless thanks to the top terminal build deck as you can simply drop your leads into the posts, and trim the excess from the bottom. However, it can be a little tricky to cut the excess wire off if you don’t have a thin pair of wire cutters as the space between the bottom of the post and the lip of the deck is quite small.

Because of the mounted design of the posts, your coils will sit quite a bit higher than in other RDA decks. This will mean longer wicks and thus further for your juice to travel, however we haven’t experienced any problems with wicking yet, and the Dead Rabbit performs just as good as any other RDA in this regard.

Once seated, the screws hold the coils in place beautifully on the deck, with enough room for even the most advanced coil builds.

The deck design of the Dead Rabbit is extremely easy to build on for beginners, but more advanced vapers will still love the ease of use and spacious build space.


Vaping & Squonking Performance: Dead Rabbit RDA ReviewDead Rabbit Vaping and Squonking Performance

We vaped with the Dead Rabbit using various types of coils and resistances, and found that it delivered awesome performance, no matter the set up. However, we found that the Dead Rabbit performs at its absolute best when used with a dual coil setup.

Because of the higher position of the coils in the deck and thus their closer proximity to your mouth, the Dead Rabbit delivers a stronger, more flavorful vapor than other RDAs and the downward slanted airflow only makes it better.  The flavor that you get from this RDA is practically unrivaled, and definitely places it in the top ranks of flavor RDAs.

With 0.2ohm dual clapton coils, the vapor is warm and full and produces some magnificent clouds. The Dead Rabbit RDA seems to vape best when the airflow is around halfway closed, but you may have a difference in preference.

When squonking with the Dead Rabbit, it also performs great. The squonk block in the middle of the deck disperses the juice nice and evenly, and the 5ml deep juice well is great for those who over-squonk. You can squonk plenty of juice into this RDA and still experience no leaking or other issues. Plus, you can vape foreverwithout having to squonk again. With correctly installed coils and wicks, the Dead Rabbit will deliver great vaping and squonking performance without a hassle.


Final Verdict: Dead Rabbit RDA ReviewDead Rabbit RDA Final Verdict

The overall verdict on the Dead Rabbit RDA is overwhelmingly positive. While this RDA does have some minor flaws, such as the tightness of the top cap to adjust the airflow, it delivers great vaping and squonking performance for those looking to get the most flavor out of their ejuices. The top terminal, four post design is extremely easy to build on as long as you have some thin wire cutters to trim your leads, and the inclusion of a squonk pin makes it easy to squonk and go drip-free. The top slanted airflow on the Dead Rabbit delivers a smooth and flavorful vaping experience, and is adjustable to fit whatever type of airflow you desire. Just be careful not to sprain your wrist trying to turn it! Overall, an amazing RDA that is easy to build on and delivers exceptional flavor. You’ll be happy that you bought one.

iJoy Captain PD270 Mod Review

All right ladies and gentlemen, this time I’ll be reviewing the iJoy Captain PD270 – the device which iJoy created alongside their new 20700 batteries.

I was pretty excited to hear about these batteries, given their 40A continuous discharge rating and 85A max pulse.

I, for one, like to vape on tanks such as the TFV12 and, when the mood strikes me, RDAs, and both produce massive amounts of vapor and flavor.

The only problem is tanks like this tend to use coils (or builds) that require 150+ watts, and this will simply not do well for battery life in a two-battery mod. Often, my batteries are drained by dinner time.

This is where these new batteries come into play. Yes, they’re the same voltage range as a 18650, but the 20700 batteries can push the higher wattages more “safely” as the amperage is much greater.

Therefore, this increases the battery life by a fairly significant amount.

And you might think the 20700’s would be much larger, but in reality, the size difference is almost entirely in diameter – the length is only slightly greater than a traditional 18650 battery. Well enough about these batteries, let’s have a look at the device!

iJoy CAPTAIN PD270 REVIEW: DESIGN


First thing’s first: this device is GORGEOUS.

The form factor that the Captain manages to achieve while accommodating these larger batteries is impressive, to say the least.

The box almost seems… well, boxy, but once you grab ahold the brick feeling goes away as it fits nicely in the hand.

Like you get with VooPoo Mods. You know, reassuring heft.

Now let me be clear, it’s actually a pretty good size mod. It’s just that the proportion between the thickness and width of the box actually makes it very comfortable if you have average or bigger size hands. For those of you with smaller paws, this device might not be your best bet, but it’s still no SMOK xCube (the original was a BEEFCAKE) and could end up working out.

Just check out your local brick and mortar store to see if it’ll work, then go home and save (most likely) $30-$40 when everything is said and done, including shipping. The device goes for only $70 online, and I’ve seen it for $100+ in stores.
iJoy Captain PD270iJoy Captain PD270
The thickness of the box is 32mm, so you can fit those massive 30mm atomizers no problem. It still looks great with a TFV12 as well, but I think this is more of a trick on the eyes because of the smaller diameter the tank has at the bottom.

In addition to the nice form factor, the device comes in 6 different colors and there are 18 different stickers you can adhere to the sides of the mod. I rock the carbon fiber ones on my red Captain and it simply looks beautiful. But, does this beauty translate to within…?

iJoy CAPTAIN PD270 REVIEW: PERFORMANCE

iJoy Captain PD270
So, as I went through earlier, the whole reason for iJoy creating this box was to popularise their new 20700 batteries. This was interesting in itself, as currently I am unaware of another major hardware manufacturer (think SMOK and how MASSIVE the company is, yet they don’t have their own batteries) which has decided to make the batteries that power their devices.

There are a few benefits from using the batteries that a company would themselves create and specify for a device; the foremost being that the company has tested this device with the batteries the customer will use. This is HUGE as it helps to eliminate the variability between displayed wattage and actual wattage being pushed to the coil.

iJoy Captain PD270

If you haven’t heard of DJLSB Vapes on YouTube, check him out for more information on this. When he reviews a device, he tests this difference and displays it on a graph for easy interpretation. Oh, and I think this is the reason why the box goes up to a quite particular 234 watts- why else would they make it such a unique number?

The other major benefit is that it reduces variability in the product. If the customers are almost exclusively using the iJoy 20700’s they will all have basically the same experience. This is not the case for 18650 devices, as there are numerous big name battery manufacturers for the vaping industry- this means that one person could be running LG HE2 batteries while another could be running Samsung 25R’s but both have the same device.

iJoy Captain PD270

While they may have a SIMILAR experience overall, the performance will be different. This even holds true for different types of batteries within a manufacturer. iJoy hopes to remedy this by introducing their own 20700 batteries.

As far as I’ve been able to tell, iJoy did their homework and produced some nice batteries and a great device to go along with them. I can run the mod at full steam all day, and then just charge overnight and be good to go in the morning. As I said up top, often I end up needing to change batteries many hours before heading to bed, so this is a big improvement for a two- battery mod in my book.

iJoy CAPTAIN PD270 REVIEW: FINAL VERDICT

iJoy Captain PD270

With the introduction of the 20700 batteries from iJoy, the next generation of powerful devices will soon arrive.

The Captain PD270 is iJoy’s first release utilizing these revolutionary new batteries, and it does NOT disappoint.

The form factor, the power capability, and the battery life at that maximum power are all fantastic!

Honestly, had I been unable to review this device, I would have gone and bought it anyway.

So what is new about the Pericles RDA?

Well on first glance there doesn’t seem to be much – but if you look a bit deeper there are a few useful new features.pericles rda airflow

So the build deck is for dual coils arranged in a “Goon” style configuration. However as anyone who has built on a Goon style deck knows holding both coils and tightening the clamp screws is a bit of a challenge!

On the Pericles the one coil uses the bottom lift up clamp and has 2 dedicated screws and the second coil is held in the slots with the two other screws. Which makes it easier to position and keep the coils in place whilst tightening.

This is a standard RDA or can be used with the included 510 squonk pin on a squonk mod.pericles rda deck

In between the coil posts is a kind of “bridge” which basically disperses the e-liquid between the 2 juice wells when you squeeze the squonk bottle to avoid the liquid shooting up too quick.
