Ehpro & NatureVape True MTL RTA
Ehpro has teamed up with NatureVape to create the True MTL RTA. The tank is named ‘True’ because it aims to produce a true mouth-to-lung experience aimed solely for MTL vapers.
It’s a 22mm diameter RTA that comes with a 2ml capacity and 3ml with the included bubble glass.
Also featuring an easy twist top fill, dual clamp/screw system build deck, and five step airflow.
It currently comes in either a black or silver finish.
Understated design, excellent build quality, smooth & defined airflow with plenty of options and brilliant flavor production.
White plastic on the top fill ruins the aesthetics a little.

The EHPRO True MTL RTA follows quite a natural path with its design. It’s an understated and extremely tidy 22mm diameter tank. In fact, it’s remarkably compact for an RTA.
The True MTL comes with a straight 2ml capacity glass installed, but there’s also a 3ml bubble glass in the kit. Even with the bubble glass installed the True RTA manages to keep its unobtrusive looks, and won’t look out of place on most small mods.
The other subtle design accents on the tank come in the shape of wavy engraved patterns along the bottom AFC control and the top cap. They offer just enough grip to be able to turn each without being too in your face like other tanks with gaudy knurling.
The True MTL RTA utilizes a unique twist fill system, so it’s vital that you can turn the top cap with ease. On the top of the tank, you can see two kidney-shaped holes. Rotating the top cap reveals the fill ports, or alternatively blocks them off. It’s easy to use with the right amount of restriction on the turn, and I’ve had no issues with it accidentally opening.
My only two gripes are that I’m not sure how it will hold up over time, and the plastic beneath the cap is white, which is always on show when the cap is closed. It kind of kills the aesthetics of the tank, especially when looking from above and with the black version we have for review.
Another thing to note with the styling of the True MTL RTA is it comes with a slightly odd shaped drip tip. It’s quite small for an MTL drip tip and curves out and then back in. It’s not uncomfortable to use, and I got used to it after a few days, but some will want to use their own 510. If that is the case, then you’ll have to bear in mind that there is a small lip that the drip tip sits on so it will look even more pronounced.
Overall though I think they’ve done an excellent job of keeping the tank looking simple and sleek. Even the ‘True’ branding on the chimney is subtly laser etched and barely noticeable.
The build quality of the EHPro True MTL RTA is excellent.
All of the threading is smooth and as I mentioned above the tip cap is easy to turn with the perfect amount of restriction.
The airflow control ring is a little stiff when you first use it. However, it can be removed as it’s only held in place by o-rings so a couple of drops of e-liquid or use over time will loosen it up adequately.
I much prefer that it comes too tight, so don’t really class that as a negative.
At first glance the True MTL RTA seems to have quite a straightforward GTA style build deck, it’s raised slightly from the bottom of the tank, and the wicking channels are open grooves on either side.
However, on closer inspection, you will notice that Ehpro and NatureVape have included clamps and screws to attach your coils. It’s something which makes a lot of sense as we are seeing more and more Clapton coils for MTL vaping, and this gives you the option to install them along with simple round wire easily.
It’s a design that’s been thought out and implemented well, and even though it’s a small build deck with a small chamber, it’s effortless to work with.
The coils supplied in the kit are actually 1.0ohm Ni80 Clapton coils. I installed them using the two Philips screws to clamp them down, and it went without a hitch.
I think even vapers new to building will find the build deck on the True MTL RTA simple to get to grips with.
Wicking on this build deck is as straightforward as with most other RTAs of this style. It’s merely a case of making sure you don’t have too much or too little cotton tucked into the wicking channels.
That being said I’ve never had a single issue with feeding juice and not even a hint of a dry hit. It has managed to keep up with 70 VG juice with no problems at all.
I would also say it’s quite forgiving with how you wick it, as even from the first go it wicked like a dream for me.
The Ehpro True MTL RTA has an extremely simple to fill system. You just quarter turn the top cap, and the kidney-shaped fill ports are revealed. Then just turn the top cap back to block off them off again.
The top cap doesn’t move on its own, so there are no issues with it accidentally opening. However, with this style of design, we will have to wait and see whether there’s any wear and tear over the long haul.
It’s an easy to use fill system and great to have on an MTL RTA.
There’s no question that the True MTL has performance which far outways its price point. I would say the vape experience that you get from this RTA is as good as some high-end premium MTL tanks.
This is all down to the combination of an easy-to-use build deck, nice reduced chamber and smooth airflow that is able to produce a true MTL vape.
I tested the tank with both simple round wire build and the 1.0ohm Ni80 Clapton coils included, and both were excellent. Here are my thoughts on the flavor and airflow:
The True MTL RTA is bang on for flavor, possibly as good as any MTL tank I’ve tried.
It produces a warm, flavorful vape with a perfectly defined throat hit.
There’s so much to love about the airflow on the True MTL, it’s silent smooth and exactly how you want an RTA designed for MTL to be.
You have 5 holes on the airflow ring ranging from 1.0mm to 1.8mm in 0.2mm increments. All of which work well, and provide the designated type of vape. I think the options have most MTL vapers covered.
Personally, I like it best on the 1.6mm hole, it gives the perfect amount of restriction but is still able to produce a great throat hit and ample vapor.
The True MTL RTA certainly does provide a ‘true’ MTL airflow, with the perfect draw. It’s now my go-to MTL RTA because of it.
- Elegant looking RTA
- Brilliant flavor
- Excellent airflow options
- Good build quality
- Easy to use top fill
- Simple build deck
- Decent Bubble glass option
- No leaks or dry hits
- White plastic on the top fill ruins the aesthetics a little
I really wasn’t expecting too much from this RTA when I first set eyes on it, let alone for it to become my favorite and even make my Berserker and Aries RTA’s redundant.
There’s not one major part of this tank that trump’s those others, but it’s more of the collective both from a design and performance point of view that makes it an excellent choice.
It has an easy to use build deck, simple top-fill, excellent airflow options and delivers brilliant flavor.
If you have either of those other RTAs should you rush out and buy this True MTL RTA, is it that much better?… Probably not. However, if you are in the market for a new MTL tank, then the True MTL RTA is undoubtedly one of the best on the market, especially if you are a true mtl vaper.
