[Guide]The year of 2016 is witnessing the most flourishing period of RTAs. More and more RTAs are emerging in the market. This kind of atomizers share the same base structures with RDAs and have the feature of tank atomizers simultaneously. They have almost the same quantity of vapors as regular RDAs and are richer in flavor. The tank could store liquid, avoiding the trouble of frequent filling.

Besides RDAs and RTAs, sub ohm atomizers should also be included in big vapor atomizers. Sub ohm atomizers adopt processed coil heads, which could provide the joy of big vapor with no need for self-building, being very suitable for beginners.  

Cleito is such a big vapor sub ohm atomizer manufactured by Aspire. Its users are all impressed by the vapor effect and rich flavor. However, it is a pity that the cost of a processed coil head is too high, and the unified data decides that it could not be adjusted according to personal habits.

Recently, Aspire has launched the RTA kit of Cleito, which could transform the sub ohm atomizer into a RTA. However, the price is not so moderate, and then some may ask whether it is worth buying or not. Here I would like to share my actual experience of it. 


Cleito is packaged inside a paper box, and its coloring continues the traditional style of the brand. The main features of it are listed on the surface: easy for installation, four-hole dual electrodes building deck, strong airflow, dense vapor, pure flavor and support for composite coils.


The pack contains a main body, several sealed rings, standby screws, an Allen wrench and a bag of cotton.

The RTA kit adopts bottom liquid supply and airflow. The size of its evaporation tank is relatively large, far more than that of sub ohm coil heads.


Cleito kit has the same length, size and tube diameter as sub ohm coil heads, ensuring that the kit could be successfully installed. The evaporation tank has four large liquid flow ports on the bottom, which, seen from the structure, must has relatively excellent evaporation ability.

Because it is a RTA kit, and does not need to fix the coil and connect through the positive electrode like processed coil heads, the electrode on the bottom is changed into the shape of a tapered column, which extends the length of the kit and makes it more compatible with the atomizers.


Cleito RTA adopts standard RTA structure—bottom four-hole liquid flow and bottom two-hole air flow. Disassemble the evaporation tank and we could see that the inner electrode deck also adopts the prevalent U shape four-hole and dual electrode structure.


The base part of the kit equals to a scaled-down version RDA. It is pre-installed with a pair of loose winded Clapton double coils. The large-diameter coil holes provide support for installing trick and composite coils.


Loose winded coils do not need repeated adjustment to achieve even heating like close winded ones, because they are evenly heated once being directly connected to current.  The large heating power of Clapton could avoid excessive heat concentration in the small space of RTAs. Partly overheating will obstruct the liquid flow speed and probably burn the cotton.


After receiving the RTA kit, users could directly make the coil head by using the cotton included. The cotton should be cut to a bit wider to avoid liquid bursting. Twist the cotton into a rope-like strip and pass it through the coil, then press the two sides to the liquid flow port and cut redundant parts, and finally put them into the liquid grooves on the two sides using tweezers.


After soaking the cotton with the liquid and electrify the kit, I found that the vapor volume is relatively larger and its explosive power hasn’t been affected by the use of Clapton. The only deficiency is the problem of heavy liquid bursting. Maybe this is why the deck is directly connected to the tube, which could obstruct the burst liquid drop from entering the tube. 


After installing the evaporation tank and screw the cover, the installation is finished. The kit is equivalent to a RDA, you can drop in a small amount of liquid, soak the cotton and electrify it to taste the flavor and check the vapor volume. But it couldn’t bear long time use, otherwise will lead to burnt coils and hot tube. 

The building process of the coils is relatively simple even for beginners if using regular heating coils.

The liquid flow trace is relatively short, thus could enhance the efficiency of liquid flow. Pay attention to scatter the cotton inside the ports to increase the contact area to the liquid. 

The installed Cleito appears that the most area of the evaporation tank is taken up by the kit, then what’s its actual storage capacity? I‘ve tested using an injection syringe, and found that the capacity of the tank is around 3-3.5ml, being equivalent to mini RTAs. 


Actual Experience:

A. Vapor Volume

Cleito RTA, matched with the pre-installed Clapton coils, performs excellent in vapor volume, being even larger than sub ohm coil heads. By making coils by myself using the universal 25Awg, the vapor volume appears equivalent to mini RTAs.

B. Flavor. Cleito features special structure, and its vapor volume and flavor are all decided by the oil head. It continues sub ohm coil heads’ rich flavor, tasting very soft. And the flavor is richer than RDAs and RTAs under the same data. 

C. Ease of Use. Cleito adopts four-hole dual electrodes structure, which is very convenient for installing and cutting coils. The placing of the cotton is so easy that you only need to cut the redundant parts close to the bottom of the liquid groove, no need for excessive adjustment. The making of coil head is not difficult even for beginners. 

D. Others. When being matched with the pre-installed Clapton coils, Cleito could easily encounter the phenomenon of liquid bursting if the amount of cotton is too small. But the structure of the evaporation tank could prevent the liquid drop from entering the tube. By properly adding the amount of cotton, the probability of liquid bursting will be reduced. This trouble could be avoided by using self-made coils, which could also enhance the flavor. 

If leave the atomizer unused for too long a time and if the tank is stored with liquid, the liquid bursting phenomenon will be even more serious. This is not the sole fault of Cleito. Actually for most atomizers, the VG constituent in the liquid will absorb moisture in the air and condense them onto the coil head if left unused for a long time, and this is why liquid bursting will happen when the atomizer is electrified. Therefore, if your atomizer is lying idle, disassemble the coil head or clean the liquid tank to avoid liquid bursting. 


Summary: Cleito has excellent actual performance in both vapor volume and flavor, making it a cost-effective RTA kit. The making of coil head is easy for both beginners and veterans. As for the price, considering the long-tern cost, the RTA kit is more affordable than the consumable sub ohm atomizers. 

To conclude, the RTA kit is a perfect match for Cleito. Users who like Cleito could add it to your shop list.
