The Vandy Vape Phobia RDA gives you plenty of drip tip options. Not only do you get plenty of drip tip options but you get two different barrels as well. The Phobia comes pre installed with a regular barrel that accepts Goon or 810 style drip tips. This barrel will also accept an included 510 drip tip adapter. Also in the package is a chuff cap and chuff cap barrel. The chuff cap barrel will accept the included chuff cap.
Included Goon style drip tip is 6 mm tall and it has some ribbing going around the circumference of it. It is a wide bore drip tip. The ribbing gives it some texture and it is very comfortable. The included chuff cap is also wide bore and it has some ribbing on it as well. It is just as wide as the included Goon style drip tip but it is a little shorter because it is a chuff cap.
There really is no cap top cap on the Phobia RDA. There are two separate Barrel sections that we referred to earlier. You can run them both differently but they both have the same exact airflow setup. The Phobia comes pre-installed with the regular barrel and on the top of it there is some writing that says “No More Fear No More Phobias”. On the side of the barrel is an engraved skull with a flaming head. The bottom of the barrel has cutouts for your bottom airflow. Towards the top of the barrel there is a conical design for better flavor.
The second Barrel has no top to it and it is basically just a sleeve. The reason there is no top is because the chuff cap included in the package acts as the top cap, when it is installed. The interior of the chuff cap that fits onto this barrel does have a conical design to it. The bottom of this barrel has the same exact air flow cut outs as the one that was previously mentioned.
The Phobia deck is a postless deck system. It has 4 terminals with grub screws that are accessed from the sides, that make for easy building. The M4 grub screws are gold plated and beefy. When you look at the deck from the top, it almost looks like a bone. The deck has 2 airflow posts that come up and provide the user with side and bottom airflow. The air flow posts almost form a cradle sort of shape, that you can place your coil into, for superior flavor. The deck has a deep juice well. This deck can be run in dual or single coil mode.
The base of the Phobia RDA is 24 mm in diameter. There is a thick o’ring that runs along the interior of the base that keeps the barrel in place. The o’ring has a great tolerance to it. On the bottom of the base there are two, thin, rectangular shaped, air slots that feed the air flow posts on the deck. The airflow on the bottom of the deck is fully adjustable. On the bottom of the atomizer, there is some Phobia branding as well as a serial number. There is also some branding for Alex From VapersMD.
Alex From VapersMD is a very popular Russian YouTube reviewer. He has been doing a lot of work with Vandy Vape lately. He helped design the Berserker MTL Tank as well as the Berserker Mini. This Phobia RDA is also a collaboration between him and Vandy Vape. The 510 Connection:
The bottom of the base also has a gold-plated 510 pin that is fully removable. It can be replaced with an included squonking pin. The 510 pin has an insulator ring around it. The threading on the 510 is stainless steel as well as extremely smooth.
