Shado MGNT V.2 RDA by Shado Vapor

The Shado MGNT 2.5 is the latest incarnation of a series of RDA’s designed by Shado Vapor which are notable for having hinged magnetic lids to make dripping convenient.

The Shado MGNT V.2 is in my opinion a very well put together RDA. It’s only real issue is that it really seem to suit standard builds at all and for it to truly deliver the goods in terms of flavour and vapour production you really need to set it up with a low Resistance build, so ideally go for Clapton or Fused Clapton coils.

While it is a shame that the airflow does not cater to single coil builds it is far less of a problem than with some other RDA’s because the design of the deck effectively walls off the opposite sides airflow. Now providing you go for something a little exotic such as a Framed Staple coil or an Alien coil you can get an excellent amount of flavour from the Shado MGNT when vaping in the 90-120W region.

In some respects it is perhaps a little odd that you do have to set up this RDA with low Resistance builds in mind because the ease of use that the deck offers suggests it would be absolutely ideal for a beginner but to be quite honest when using standard builds I was quite disappointed and I wouldn’t want to see any rebuildable newcomer using coils very low Resistance coils simply to get a good vape out of this thing! If the Shado MGNT offered a solid vape with a 3mm ID 26 gauge dual coil build of 0.5ohm or above it would be less of an issue but I felt that setup resulted in a rather washed out vape and that is really the downside of this RDA not having adjustable airflow.

The hinged magnetic lid is a cool feature but perhaps a little bit of a gimmick especially when you consider there is more than enough room to simply drip juice straight through the drip tip but it might really appeal to many users who are looking for something different and it is a trademark feature of the various incarnations of this particular RDA.

All in all this RDA is worth a look if you are someone who likes low Resistance builds because it really does offer superb flavour with that kind of setup and very impressive cloud production!
