Last month the notorious company Augvape presented another novelty – a drip with an extremely simple fastening of two spirals with just one screw and not so long ago it reached us. Meet, Templar RDA.

Packing and equipment
The device comes in the usual for Augvape small black cardboard tube, which contains brief information about the contents, certificates, warnings and scratch-code for checking originality.
On the black version at the top there is a sticker with the name of the color. Inside the tube we are immediately met by the device itself in foam rubber. Directly below it is another compartment, where there is a top-cap made of polycarbonate and a bag of dopa, among which you can find spare o-rings, an adapter for the 510th drip-type and squonk-pin.
At the time of release, the drip is available in two colors – matte black and glossy steel. In addition to these two colors, in the near future should appear a blue version with a glossy finish.
In the analysis the drip looks like this:
- Diameter: 24 mm
- Height: 21.27 mm
- Height with standard drip-type: 26.9 mm
Knight (this is how the name of the drip is translated and it is engraved on the skirt) is completed with an 810th non-dripping drip-type, and also an adapter for the 510th. They are held on one oring, located at the top of the top-cap.
The diameter on the landing is standard – 12.7 mm, which makes it possible to set the favorite 810s without problems, which I did, because the standard 810 is short, and its walls are rather thin, which makes its use at high power not particularly comfortable.
In the upper part of the top-cap is an engraving with the name of the device and small grooves, thanks to which it is more convenient to adjust the airflow, but in this place the top-cap has a smaller diameter and relatively low side – somehow the fingers touch the drip-type.
In the inner part of the top-cap there is hemispherical processing, which positively affects the taste, moreover, the inside diameter of the dome is about 20 mm.
On the skirt, the top-cap is held on one o-ring, which is well matched – the top-cap rotates with a little effort.
The base of the top-cap has a stepped shape, which allows you to fine tune the tightening. On both sides of the skirt there are three rows of air intake openings: wide openings 3.5×1 mm, and small ones 1.6×1 mm.
Inside the skirt is a groove, combining it with the key on the base, we get a situation in which the airflow is always opposite the spirals and we can block, for example, the upper row, leaving half the middle and bottom open.
It was not without drawbacks, familiar to many owners of drippers with similar in size holes. I’m talking about a condensate that can accumulate in these very holes.
In principle, this is by far not the most terrible problem, because when tightened, this condensate is sucked in, but on the black version of the drip track the state in which the current adjustment is not quite convenient, especially in low light conditions.
I used the top-cap of polycarbonate not for very long, but the fact that it is in the package is already good and will certainly please fans of this format.
Despite the lack of adjustment of the blowing, the tightening through these four small holes is pleasant, moderately free, moreover, the holes are at an angle and this imitation of the pseudo-bottom blowing together with the shape that converges to the top very well reveals the taste of the liquid.
I did not feel any significant heating, but the presence of a permanent condensate collecting on the inner walls of the dome – yes, and this personally exaggerates me a little.
As always, the most interesting is the base, and here it is represented by almost classic Velocity-like stands, with the only significant difference being that only one screw made of titanium is used for the clamps of the legs of both spirals.
Twisting this screw up the rack, opening two additional holes for the installation of legs. The maximum distance between the holes in the racks is 11.7 mm, and the holes themselves are 2.6×1.8 mm in size, which easily makes it possible to install almost any complexity and size of the spiral.
The bath with respect to the height of the sides is not too deep – only 5 mm, but somehow contains about the same amount of liquid as most drips with side airflow.
At the bottom of the database are certificates, logos and serial number of the device, as well as an adjustable pin, which can be replaced with squonk.
Installation of spirals and laying of cotton
I suspected that one screw must cope with the clamping of the legs of some flat fyuzes, so I decided to install a long-lying Fused clapton (Twist) from the set from Coil Master. Parameters of winding: 2х0.3 + 0.2 above, resistance after burning – 0.28 Ohm.
Yes, not the most beautiful winding on the planet, but what to do – such curves of the spiral should be harder to clamp. Nevertheless, the screw coped without any problems, and the spirals finally waited for their hour of glory.
Even on this winding the drip can generate a decent amount of steam, but as for the taste, it opened a little more brightly on the polycarbonate dome, but it was still far from the desired one.
Therefore, after a couple of days of use, I installed my usual fyuzes and then the drip began to play as it should, the taste spread revealed, and the steam became more dense and saturated.
However, with the ease with which this drip is served – the replacement of spirals does not take much time even for a beginner.
Templar RDA – a worthy candidate for the title if not the best drips, it is at least interesting for coil-builders and convenient for beginners, due to its insane simplicity in service.
I can not even point out any sharply negative moments, only a couple of fault-finding: not the most hygienic blowing adjustment and very small holes, through which the black version of the drip can not very clearly see exactly how the blowing is located.
