The Mjolnir RDA from Cthulhu Mods: An Anxious Review https://ift.tt/2QiopDQ

Hey hey hey everyone!!! /u/AnxietyAttack2013 here again. How’s it going on this fine day? Hopefully you’re all well! Today we’ve got the mjolnir RDA from Cthulhu Mods which was designed by our very own /u/Anthony_Vapes. But I’m sure y’all heard of this RDA, so let’s wrap up the introductions and check this thing out!!

Disclaimer: this product was sent to me for review from Cthulhu Mods. I will not let that fact, nor my feelings towards them or Anthony_Vapes affect my opinions or thoughts on this.


whatcha got in the box?

mjolnir picture album

Okay, not a box this time. We’re back to tins again. Don’t make that face! Tins are cool. But inside this tin we have:

The mjolnir RDA (with 810 drip tip)

A 510 drip tip

A 510 tip adapter

Spare o-rings

Hex screws

Slotted screws

A BF pin

A manual

This retails for $29.99 directly from Cthulhu Mods.

so its not MTL? Well I guess you didn’t make this one! So what was your first impressions of this?

My first thought was “damn…it doesn’t have Anthony_Vapes face slapped on the side!”. But jokes aside, there is absolutely no branding on this. It’s pretty sleek aside from some knurling on the bottom and and some ribbing at the top. But it doesn’t detract from the aesthetics at all.

The drip tip is pretty nice in looks. The blue goes pretty well with the stainless cap. And from looking at it, the bore is quite narrow for an 810 tip. Surprisingly so. Almost to where I think I could probably use it as a 510 adapter.

(Side note: the bore of the included 810 tip is too narrow to be used as a 510 adapter. I did try)

The 510 tip on the other hand is an opaque, frosted looking plastic. It isn’t the most restricted or narrow tip out there, but it looks to be alright overall. And it does look pretty nice against the stainless cap.

The airflow looks pretty nice on this but without using it yet, I can’t exactly say how well it will be. It looks to be fairly restricted though.

Underneath the top cap shows that there is a sort of chamber reducer all the way at the top. So while on the outside this atomizer looks fairly large, underneath is actually smaller and more condensed than I expected. This should lead to some good flavor.

Onto the deck, it’s a fairly large deck that has room for some pretty big builds. And the juice well is massive!!! But this leads me to believe it will require a lot of cotton to prevent it from leaking if you are dripping as opposed to squonking. As with squonking, excess juice should ideally go back into the bottle.

But overall, it looks okay so far.

that does look like a massive juice well. But how about that first time use? How was it?

To start, I threw in a 24ga 6 wrap parallel build. Installing the coil was a breeze. The wire trapped with no problems. There is plenty of room for builds bigger than this. I could likely fit a 4mm version of this build with enough room to spare. I’ve never had any issues with throwing a build in this.

Wicking was a little trickier. It’s difficult at first to judge how much wicking material to use due to how deep the juice well is. Longer is better for this one. Fluffier too. You really want to fill the juice well with cotton in my experience.

Honestly though, building this brought about no issues. It’s a very simple atomizer to build on. Wicking is the only snag but it’s easy to get used to.

so this is where you get into the daily use, right?

Yup! So this features the same flanges on the side that the 1928 has to keep the airflow from spinning too much. And they have worked very well for me. I haven’t had the airflow spin around on me nor have I had the top cap pop off in my pocket.

The draw on this is a bit odd for me. It’s not ridiculously tight or anything but not super loose either while wide open. That doesn’t mean I dislike the draw in any way though. It’s a very comfortable draw. More restricted fully open with the 810 tip than other direct lung atomizers but too loose for what I would consider a restricted lung inhale.

Closing down the airflow a little bit does bring this into restricted lung territory though while using the 810 tip that is included. And it is still a very comfortable draw in my opinion.

For funsies, I did use a few other 810 tips on this that I have. Swapping that out did widen up the draw a considerable amount so part of the oddness of the draw comes from the included tip while it is fully open.

Using the 510 drip tip does tighten the draw but it is still fairly loose when wide open. I’m surprised this didn’t go with diffused airflow under the coil as it is an indirect bottom airflow atomizer, but the draw itself is still fairly smooth.

Squonking on this can be a bit iffy at first. Due to the massive juice well it can take a bit of use to adjust to. The first few days for me were very messy. It is easy to get over confident and over squonk it at first. And by doing so, I have flooded this multiple times the first week of using it. Even to the point of having it leak on me, causing a bit of a mess. But as time went on, I was able to better gauge how much I’ve squonked with it and have since avoided over juicing it.

Dripping is easier with this since you can see how much juice is going on better than when squonking. And removing the top cap is very easy, though not easy enough to have it pop off in the pocket.

Gauging how much time it takes for the juice to saturate the cotton is also a bit of a learning curve with this due to how long the wicks need to be. With most of my bottom feeding RDAs, it’s easy to squonk it a few times and be good to go almost immediately. With this, it takes a couple seconds for the juice to fully saturate the cotton.

I haven’t experienced any spitback or anything with this though.

well that’s all fine and dandy I guess. But what about performance? That’s the real kicker!

Yeah, performance is often what matters most to people I guess haha.

So let’s start with flavor. And with my builds, the flavor has been pretty damn solid. It’s nothing mind blowing, but it’s more than good enough for me to not be disappointed by it. Above average to say the least for direct lung atomizers in my experience.

When using other, less narrow, 810 tips, the flavor did not change much either. This leads me to believe that the flavor this is producing comes from the reduced chamber and not the narrower 810 tip.

Throwing the 510 tip on it really improves the flavor too. It does also restrict things a bit to decidedly restricted lung when the airflow is closed a bit.

As for the vapor production, it has always been fairly impressive for me. Looking at the airflow and the narrower 810 tip, I didn’t expect this to produce as much vapor as it does. But using a single parallel 24ga 6 wrap build at 50 watts it has been producing a large and fairly dense cloud every time. Changing it out to the 510 tip does restrict it more so while the vapor production is less, it does gain density in my experience.

well that seems good to me! Can I get a list of pros and cons please?

Why thank you for saying please! Okay, sure. Let’s get down to it.

pros

Above average flavor.

Vapor production is nice.

Airflow doesn’t move around on me.

Top cap stays on in the pocket.

Aesthetically pleasing (in my opinion).

Easy to build on.

Massive juice well.

No spit back.

810 and 510 drip tip compatible and includes both.

Pretty versatile draw.

cons

Gauging how much you need to squonk can take some getting used to due to the large juice well.

Due to the length the wicks need to be, it takes a bit of time for them to be fully saturated when squonking.

Can be a little messy/leaky when getting used to the juice well, especially when over squonked.

only the three cons? I’m guessing I know where this will be heading. What’re the final thoughts?

So there’s definitely a bit of a learning curve with this RDA. But it doesn’t take long to get used to it. The wicking and the juice capacity are the main things. And the performance of this has been pretty good overall too. So while the cons are annoying at first, you get used to them and the performance I would say makes up for it.

So of course, you know how I work. Don’t just trust one review. Do some research and become informed. As for me, however, I feel like this is something I can recommend. I haven’t had any negative experiences with it once I got used to using it after a couple of days. After that, everything was smooth sailing and it has been quite enjoyable to use.


So that’s what I’ve got for y’all today. Thanks again for reading! And I apologize for any absence that has come about and the delay on this and my usual postings. The next MTL guide has been an especially long one and is taking longer to write than usual. I’ve also got a couple of other things eventually coming out that have taken time away from those.

But thanks for reading this far! Hope to see you guys in the late night chat thread tonight!!!
