Although I received a few more Wotofo tanks before this one, I had to skip the backlog and devote some time to reviewing this one. Why? Well, it has a deck with ceramic piece that pushes the cotton upwards for your favorite juice to be heated by - mesh! Just like their Profile RDA I had reviewed earlier.
Obviously, I was intrigued as the Profile Unity RTA is a collaborative result from Wotofo, MrJustRight1 and The Vapor Chronicles.
Is it worth your attention and the current price? Yes! Does it have all it takes for a yummy vape experience? It does! Are there any details that bugged me although I've been vaping since 2014 and have tried hundreds of atomizers and mods? Surprisingly, yes! Let's start with the box.
What's In The Wotofo Profile Unity RTA Box
The Profile Unity RTA comes in a new, redesigned package which enables you to see the exact color shade so that you can decide whether you like that one or you would prefer a different color out of the 6 total on the market: black, blue, gold, silver, gunmetal and rainbow.
- 1 x Profile Unity RTA
- 1 x 5ml Glass Tube
- 1 x User Manual
- 1 x Bending Tool
- 1 x Screwdriver
- 1 x bag with 2 pieces of nexMesh Coil (0.13 ohm in resistance)
- 1 x bag 6mm Agleted Cotton with 2 pieces
- 1 x bag with Extra Orings & Screws, Springs and 5ml Tube Adapter
I would also like to see one spare, taller drip tip and a more detailed manual with specs and more thorough instructions. In all fairness, I only took a glance at the manual but novice vapers would appreciate a more detailed instructions. Fortunately, there's no shortage of YT reviewers who are more graphic than the manual.
The Design and the Build Quality
Overall, there is a feel of good quality parts and apart from the threads which I wish were smoother, I've got no objections when it comes to the build quality.
Compared to the Profile RDA, the ceramic block could be firmer but that's the result of the (possibly) less firm springs of which you get extra in the spare parts baggy.
What I didn't dig, is the fact that the deck cannot be screwed onto the tank while attached to my mod. The deck has to be unscrewed and be able to rotate freely in order to be screwed back to the tank. This is a minor nuisance which (I'm afraid) is not mentioned in the manual.
So, unless a new owner has read a YT tutorial, they will have no clue why they cannot screw back the deck to the rest of the tank while the decks is on the mod.
The other thing is the position of the side juice fill holes which asks for the somewhat complicated trimming of the wicking material. The thing is, Wotofo has suggested one way of trimming cotton but soon afterwards shared different instructions with all reviewers. The wick (2 pieces that you get in the baggy) is pretty much similar to the wicks of the Profile RDA.
The Profile Unity RTA Parts
Here are the parts I got when I disassembled the tank plus the spare glass piece and the adapter you will need to turn the original 3.5ml configuration into 5ml.
Right to left, the drip tip is nice although a little too short for my taste. Still, it's great quality and fits the top cap perfectly.
Next to it is the half-turn top cap which enables you to fill the tank from the top. I suggest you close the airflow holes (five on each side with hard stops) before filling.
Why the filling ports (two on each side) are so narrow eludes me. This type of DL tanks requires thicker juices with 80% VG or more. However, you will need to use a bottle with a needle or a narrow filling part so as not to make a mess. I wish the ports were wider so I don't have to be that cautious when refilling the tank.
Once the tank is filled patiently, I had no leaking problems whatsoever, which is a plus. The inner diameter of the chimney (as seen in the photo on the left) is wide enough for urestricted DL style of vaping, which is another plus.
The Profile Unity RTA Build Deck And Wicking
The wicking process starts off easily by bending the mesh using the tool provided. You then screw it onto the deck inserting the mesh into the two slots on both sides of the springy ceramic block. Then you pull/push downwards the provided wick and trim it.
Initially, you just get rid of the excess cotton. Then you trim it some more to allow for the bottom part of the cotton wick to be tucked in nicely into the two slots which are fed from the bottom.
Lastly, you need to leave just about enough cotton on the sides to be fed from the side juice fill holes. This may be a little tricky for beginners. I had no problems although I do suspect possible frustration when a novice vaper tries to wick Profile Unity RTA. It does take a little patience wicking it but it's worth it!
The Profile Unity RTA Overall Performance
First off, for the mesh which is rated at 0.13 ohms, you can expect to find your sweet spot anywhere between 80W and 100W. This range means higher liquid consumption and for me the logical choice is to opt for a 5ml configuration. Once you screw in the adapter provided and the taller glass section, you'll be set for a few hours of genuinely tasty vape with no burnt taste and not too warm vape.
At 90W, I got a flavorful vape with 3 out of 5 airflow holes open on each side. The main flavor and the undertones are there!
How About The Vapor Production? - See for yourself!
As you can see, this RTA from Wotofo rocks when it comes to vapor production. The flavor is also very good and the overall impression is positive regardless of the few minor knacks I'd rather see changed.
Recommendation to purchase? Yeah, if you have solid experience with DL RTAs, the Profile Unity RTA by Wotofo will not let you down, for sure! I certainly enjoyed reviewing it!
