Foment [review] – hope a 300 reference isn’t too outdated, This is Wotofo! The Warrior RDA! https://ift.tt/2ITrdk3

What's up today guys? Today I've got an atomizer to discuss with you, an RDA made for big builds and big clouds. The Wotofo Warrior. This RDA was sent to me by the folks at Wotofo for the purposes of this review. The RDA purports to be designed by builders for builders. The real question then is how it holds up in practice. So, is it as accommodating to the big meaty builds it's designed for? Let's discuss!

Atomizer Aesthetics


The top cap is domed nicely, the airflow is purely side airflow in a fairly large series of little holes in a rectangle. The branding certainly makes itself known though. The spartan helmet design works fairly well when the color is matched to the cap, though I feel it stands out a bit too much in the versions where it's silver against the blue or black barrels. The drip tip is fairly nice, 810 sized and acts as a reasonable accent to the barrel, and is comfortable in use. The o rings seem solid, if at times a bit too tight. I do also like that the cap has notches that lock in against the deck to assure the airflow is always aligned correctly. The airflow adjustment is a simple straightforward means of closing down and narrowing the airflow, but you cannot augment the height of the airflow, which will tie your hands a bit in how to build it.

Build Deck


The build deck is in truth, very much an updated version of the Goon's deck. There's nothing truly revolutionary here, the 4 screw set up and the fact that the clamps float and are pressed into place by the screws rather than being secured in some way to make the build deck easier to work with is unfortunate. The four screw design does lend a relatively even pressure to the builds being thrown between the clamps, and it certainly will accommodate a rather large build. I do however preferred aping the single screw clamp design that the Apocalypse Gen 2, and a fair handful of other RDAs, use more than the 4 screw set up. Having to move back and forth between two screws until pressure is evenly applied and the clamp is level isn't difficult but it's more work than it needs to be. It will allow for most any build you want to throw at it certainly, but it isn't a terribly efficient design.

Performance


Let's be straight here, this was designed for gigantic coils, high wattage, and big clouds. Everything it manages to do for flavor is a bonus. With that in mind, the build deck will allow you to slap some pretty monstrous coils in there, as you can see from the included coils (specs as per Wotofo: (26+36)x2+0.1×0.4 N80 ID 3mm 0.28ohm). There's still plenty of room to fit a larger build in the deck if you so choose. I don't know that I'd recommend going with any more mass than the included coils though. They are pretty beefy for sure, but the top cap does seem pretty happy to soak up heat and does get fairly hot if you're chain vaping with the 120-150w builds that the deck is hungry for. The deck is capable of handling bigger coils than the top cap will manage to play nice with, which is unfortunate. In light of the airflow design, the flavor is limited. There's no getting rid of the flavor outright, but it is a bit weaker than it should be because the airflow is both fairly high, and can't be narrowed to a lower position or to the center of the coils, so the airflow is never properly aligned when closed off.

Pros:
* Very Accommodating to large builds
* Solid construction and robust o rings
* Clouds are easy to come by

Cons:
* Outdated clamp design
* Top cap gets too warm
* Flavor suffers due to airflow design

Final Thoughts


There's some good here overall, though it's not perfect by any means. I'd like to see a V2 with a more thought out airflow design, a bit lower set perhaps, or able to close of row by row from the top down rather than closing off a side of the airflow. Similarly, I'd love to see Wotofo move toward a design that does a better job of dissipating heat rather than letting it build up in the dome of the top cap. For clouds, or monstrous builds, this may have a place in your arsenal, but the cap soaking up heat limits what you can do, and the flavor is going to fall short of some other high wattage and high airflow atties. It just feels like it falls to the middle of the pack in the end.
