Introduction

Wotofo has recently added to their collection a MTL RDA. While possibly as a result of the merger with OFRF, nonetheless it is a first for Wotofo. The Wotofo STNG contains a few unique attributes that perform well. However, is the single sided dual channel airflow enough to bring that flavour home.

Box Contents

Instantly recognisable as a Wotofo product with the signature green inlay. The packing is simple and effective, with the RDA itself serving as the main feature. Typicaly on the front there is the logo of both the STNG and Wotofo. Additionally the Wotofo STNG is a cooperation piece with Uncle Stas. A Russian Vape Reviewer on the Youtube channel Vapor Place.

Meanwhile printed on the sides of the box are the usual contents, logos and a scratch and check authenticity sticker. While on the back contains the usual health warnings, and more logos.

Once the top layer has been removed, there are the usual spare o-rings, screws, springs, and a squonk pin. Additionally there is a 0.8Ω ohm Dual Core Fused Clapton N80 coil and a single wire 1.2Ω N80 coil. Furthermore in the bottom layer, is a Allen key for the centre pin, a screwdriver for the posts, some cotton, and a fold out user guide.

Build quality

Supplied with a Rainbow coloured Wotofo STNG for the purpose of this review. While not a huge fan of rainbow finishes, it works well with STNG especially when sat on a little black mod. Besides it certainly draws your attention straight to it.

Manufactured as a two piece RDA, comprising of the deck base, and top cap. Additionally there is of course the two choices of included drip tips to suit your particular preference. However they both have an inner diameter of 3 mm, while the difference is the outer diameter and curve. Moreover when it comes to the deck, while milled and cleanly cut, what we find isn’t particularly exciting. However when squonking the juice comes from the underside of the dual airflow outlet, making a clean finish.

Although not unique to the Wotofo STNG, a nice touch is the spring mounted, t-clamp post design. Allowing the coil to be positionable, either way around. Consequentially, no more building a coil and realising you needed to wind it backwards.

While some parts of the Wotofo STNG are superbly milled. There are a few areas however that are not up to the usual Wotofo quality, with either scrape marks or slightly less clean lines. A point of note this is of course pure aesthetic and do not hinder the performance in anyway.

Additionally the drip tips are not particularly special to look at. While they feel nice in the mouth, the shape, in theory should be especially suitable for a good MTL. However there is no anti-spit layers or walls.

Dimensions – How big is yours.

Discounting the drip tip the Wotofo STNG MTL RDA has a diameter of 22 mm and a height of 22 mm excluding the 510 drip tip. Making the STNG perfect for sitting on a smaller mod, for that extra stealthy vape. However MTL drip tips tend to be taller than DTL so the overall height with either of the enclosed drip tips is 39 mm tall.

Functionality

RDA Deck

Layout of the Wotofo STNG deck is a simple, yet affective setup with spring loaded low profile posts, that make coil placement super easy. Importantly, there has been countless times I have forgotten to wind a coil backwards to suit a certain style of deck. However with the Wotofo STNG MTL RTA, not having to remember coiling in a particular way is always a great bonus.

Coiling

With deck layouts such as the style used in the Wotofo STNG. Coiling leg tools are not needed and are especially easy to build on. Moreover, it is a case of simply inserting your coil through the posts, while ensuring that the coil is central to the airflow channels. Finally tighten down the posts and simply trim away the excess leg lengths.

Wicking

If you thought the coiling was easy, the wicking is even easier. Pull enough cotton through for your coil, and pull the ends of the cotton downwards. Now simply cut your cotton so that it lines up with the bottom of the deck. Finally poke you cotton into the juice well of the Wotofo STNG.

Additionally if you are using the STNG with a squonker (Highly recommended) while placing your cotton, ensure that it is not restricting the e-liquid outlet from under the airflow outlets. Now prime your coil and wick with you juice of choice and you are all set.

Refilling

While you can technically drip on the Wotofo STNG by removing the drip tip, it sadly has its problems in doing so and you are most likely going to want to squonk with the STNG.

Moreover with the 0.8Ω Fused Clapton, you will end up with an oversaturated coil, and a mouthful of juice through the drip tip. Additionally when dripping on the Fused Clapton, you end up re-dripping every other vape. Quickly this becomes tiresome and ultimately making the Wotofo STNG a squonk only RDA. Not to mention that the STNG is super easy to overfill when dripping, thanks to a relatively shallow juice well.

Is it a tight one SIR?

Furthermore the dual channel airflow is actually a single channel with two outlet holes.
At a first glance you would be forgiven to think that the airflow is going to be a very restrictive and not particularly smooth vape. However that is far from the truth. For a MTL RDA the Wotofo STNG produces a wonderfully smooth and flavoursome vape.

For a single sided airflow, the Wotofo STNG manages to surprise you, in just how tight or loose a vape the STNG can produce. Ultimately down to the shape of the airflow inlet on the dome, in the form of a tear or perhaps a pear on its side. Moreover as you close the airflow control by rotating the dome, the dimension of the airflow through the inlet gets smaller than most regular shaped holes. Consequentially as it approaches the tip or end of the inlet, the shape becomes more of a rugby ball than a circle.

Without a doubt Wotofo and Uncle Stas have nailed it the MTL airflow on the Wotofo STNG perfectly.

Niggles

There is but one niggle with the Wotofo STNG, the over saturation of the coil when dripping. Further worsened by the near instant condensation build up within the narrow 3 mm supplied drip-tips. As a result you could end up with a mouth of juice and the risk of a burnt tongue. Even pulling off the drip-tip, often ends up with condensed e-liquid flying across the room.

A point of note however, I often do not use the cotton supplied in tanks and atomisers, preferring Cotton Bacon V2 or Cotton Gods. For some reason or another, on the last re-wicking I used the Wotofo enclosed wicking material. While the over saturation was greatly reduced, it sadly did not reduce the condensation. However as the Wotofo STNG uses a standard 510 drip tip, you could simply swap it out for an anti-spit 510 drip tip, which should help.

Summary

One thing that always stands out with any of Wotofo’s products is usually the build quality. While I’m not sure if this is as a consequence of merging with OFRF or the sample received was just machined by someone having a bad day. However the quality of the workmanship, seems below the high par that Wotofo have held for sometime.

While Wotofo are new to the MTL game, they scored a hit with the Wotofo STNG and a tribute to both Uncle Stas and the Wotofo team.

Flavours come through crisp and strong, with the meringue in Lemon Tart coming through perfectly balanced making a wonderful vape experience. The kind of enjoyment not matched with any previous MTL vape I have tried.
