Sapor RDA by Wotofo

From the manufacturer of the Freakshow and the Freakshow Mini RDAs Wotofo brings you the Sapor. This RDA features a split positive post with fully adjustable top airflow. Complimented by a smart look the Sapor is an RDA designed to make for a leak free vape experience.

Sapor RDA features

  • 22mm diameter
  • Four post design
  • Available in Stainless Steel and Black
  • Rhodium Plated Copper Contact
  • 6mm Deep Juice Well
  • 11mm Broad cap
  • Dual Adjustable Top Airflow
  • German Made PEEK Insulator

What’s in the box?

  • 1x Sapor RDA by Wotofo
  • 1x PEEK Friction Fit Drip Tip
  • 1x 11mm Broad cap
  • 1x 510 Drip Tip Adapter
  • Spare O-Rings
  • Spare Grub Screws
  • 1x Blue Screwdriver
  • Assembly Instructions Card
  • Authenticity Card

Take note! The infamous blue screwdriver included is designed for use with the included grub screws. I typically ignore the blue screwdriver since I never use them and for a minute I thought that the package was missing an Allen Key but that is not the case.  This is not your typical blue screwdriver, this is a blue handled hex key!

Sapor RDA styling and build quality

In terms of looks the Sapor is an attractive design. The stainless steel and black version which was sent for review is smartly presented and the RDA name is engraved in red lettering. The top cap overhangs and in some ways reminds me of a top hat.

The airflow is very similar to the Aeolus V1 RDA - the air comes in from the top slots at the side and is directed downward at the coils. Due to this the Sapor is practically leak free and you would have to turn this RDA upside down or heavily overfill to get any leaking.

The top cap is held securely by double O-rings. It is a little stiff the first few times you take it off but it does get better over time. I would suggest you remember to moisten the O-rings with a little juice to make things easier. The broad cap and the other drip tips and adapters are of a press-fit design and they do require a little bit of force to install or remove.

The top cap features adjustable airflow but once again it can be a little stiff to adjust if you don’t moisten the O-rings. I don’t consider this a flaw and it is really just down to the product being brand new and needing time to wear in.

The deck features a four post design with large post holes that should easily accommodate most typical builds. The posts use grub screws which work without issue. The juice well is 6mm deep so you can get a good amount of juice in there.

Sapor RDA ease of build

Building the Sapor is extremely easy but keep in mind that it is a dual coil only RDA. The post holes are large which makes it user friendly to newcomers. The grub screws work well and trap the wire without cutting it. The only thing you need to be aware of is that your coils have to be positioned correctly so they line up with the airflow that comes down from the top.

I used 26AWG (0.4mm) Kanthal wire and made two identical coils. The final resistance was 0.5ohm and I wicked the coils with Japanese cotton.

How does it vape?

I firstly used Element Mojito which is a favourite of mine. I started vaping at 30W on the Freakshow Tiny TC mod. I was initially using the 11mm broad cap and I found the flavour to be good. It is not really a flavour chaser RDA so in my opinion drippers such as Wotofo’s Freakshow Mini will still give you superior flavour but the Sapor does still give you a very enjoyable and flavoursome vape. The advantage the Sapor has over the Freakshow Mini is the fact that is pretty much leak free and it gives greater vapour production.

With the 11mm broad cap vapour production is very good and it results in some quite dense clouds. My only issue with the 11mm broad cap was that it did result in a fair amount of spit back so I replaced it with the standard 510 drip tip. This thankfully solved the spit back issue and resulted in a slight increase in flavour. Vapour production obviously dropped a little but for most users this would still be a more than acceptable vape!

Next up I tried Manabush Coyote Coconut and the Sapor gave me a very enjoyable vape with good flavour and a reasonable amount of vapour.

I really do enjoy top airflow RDA’s because I really hate juice leaking all over my mods which often happens with some of the more typical drippers. In many ways the Sapor is very similar to the Vector RDA I recently reviewed and they both have features that appeal to me. If you at all tempted to a top airflow RDA then the Sapor is definitely a good place to start. If I were to compare the two then I would say that I like the changeable drip tips on the Sapor but I prefer the adjustable airflow on the Vector. Both result in a similar vape but in terms of personal preference I prefer the hotter vape that the Vector offers. However if I were to purchase just one then it would have to be the Sapor because the price is far more agreeable and you could buy two of these for the same cost as the Vector.

Conclusion

The Sapor is a good quality RDA that has some very nice features. The grub screws ensure you get a good tight connection which would be useful to anyone running a Nickel build. The top airflow makes for almost leak free vaping and the flavour and cloud production is good! When you factor in the fact that the RDA comes with a 510 drip tip adapter along with two drip tips included it makes for a very worthwhile package.

The only real downside to this RDA is a slight lack of flexibility since it does require you to use dual coil builds. However that minor negative is greatly outweighed by the very reasonable price. For a well built and authentic RDA £24.99 is not going to break the bank, so the Sapor is ideal providing you are comfortable with dual coil builds.

Many thanks to Grey Haze who kindly sent this RDA for Planet of the Vapes to review. The Sapor is currently on sale at Grey Haze for just £19.99.
