The Vandy Vape Berserker V2 MTL RDA is as the name suggests the latest upgrade to the very popular original Berserker MTL RDA.
So what’s changed?
Firstly, the Berserker V2 MTL RDA is a 22mm diameter RDA, compared to the somewhat skinny 18mm original. This means there are obviously no beauty rings this time round to make it look like a 22mm.
It also has a far shorter appearance, measuring 24mm tall without the drip tip.
One reason for the increased diameter is that Vandy Vape has created a ‘dual shell chamber design’ which allows for a smaller dome to further improve flavor output.
There have been some changes to the build deck to make the whole thing more compact inside, with flat heads screws sitting almost flush to the deck to trap your coil legs, and the coil placement being out in the open, instead of between the two posts.
Perhaps the most significant noticeable difference is with the airflow design. The V2 has just a singular airflow inlet, and instead of using the rather fiddly and annoying airflow sticks, this time they are small inlet plugs that slide into the main airflow slot.
There are 4 inlets in total which vary from 1mm, 1.4mm, 1.6mm and 2mm in diameter. Unlike the original, there is no way to change the airflow hole beneath the coil.
There’s no mention from Vandy Vape of a bottom-fed 510 pin, but I’m pretty certain they will include one.
The Vandy Vape Berserker V2 MTL RDA is available in four colors; Matte Black, Gun Metal, Stainless Steel and Rainbow.
The original Berserker MTL RDA was incredibly popular due as it was one of the first budget MTL RDAs.
It provided an excellent vape and covered all types of MTL vaping with its multitude of airflow configurations.
However, there were a few things I really didn’t like about it. It was quite awkward looking with its thin diameter and tall drip tips, and the airflow control sticks while being very useful were also a pain to use.
While the V2 isn’t the most striking looking RDA, it certainly will look more in place on today’s mods than the original.
The change in build deck and airflow inlets looks like it will make it an easier RDA to deal with, but some may miss being able to control the way the airflow hits the coil from beneath.
Whether all of that makes a difference to the performance of the RDA, and if the ‘dual shell chamber design’ actually improves flavor….we’ll have to wait and see.
