Design & Spec.
The Fat Rabbit Solo RTA by Hellvape is a single coil RTA with a 25mm diameter. It is 55mm high with a juice capacity of 4.5ml (2ml for TPD edition) and weighs in at 70g.
At the top of the tank is a removable 810 drip tip inserted into the top cap with knurling around the edge. This top cap quarter turns to remove where it reveals the fill ports for E-liquid. Below the top cap sits the chamber which is inserted into the middle glass tube. At the bottom sits the build deck and above is a side-airflow control ring. The deck also has airflow control, as the tank has both a bottom and side airflow system. The bottom chamber has an etched Fat Rabbit logo on one side with ‘Fat Rabbit’ etched on the other.
The dual airflow gives a few configurations during vaping. You can close off the bottom deck airflow and just use the side airflow or vice versa just using the bottom airflow. You can have a fully airy vape by leaving both the bottom and side wide open. The bottom airflow consists of the usual 2 air slots on the deck and the side airflow is 4 holes on each side of the AFC ring.
Hellvape claims that the RTA is anti-condensation by using an ‘innovative internal structure of 810 drip tip‘ which can prevent condensation.
You can buy the Dead Rabbit Solo in 7 colour options over at Sourcemore; Stainless Steel (as reviewed), Blue, Gold, Gunmetal, Rainbow, Matte Black and Matte Full Black.
The Deck & Build
The Hellvape Fat Rabbit Solo uses a postless deck. There are 4 holes for coil posts on the deck, so being a single coil you have two configurations on the location of the coil, held with flathead screws within the base of the deck.
Situated in the middle is a grilled area for airflow and on each side is a raised area for the cotton wick to sit on. Below, on each side of the coil location are recessed pits to drop each end of the wick into. There are holes at the bottom for the juice to be drawn into to saturate the wick from the other side.
The deck is a generous size so should have no problems using a larger coil. To install the deck, it simply pushes up into the main tank with a quarter turn to lock and secure in.
The Fat Rabbit Solo in my opinion is a very decent single coil RTA. It’s a good size at 25mm so no problems with fitting on the top of most mods without overhang. It cosmetically looks good and easy when filling due to the very large fill area underneath the top cap.
The build deck is easy to add a coil build with plenty of space to work with. Simply snip the coil legs with the coil tool guide in the box. This way there isn’t an issue with having the coil legs too long or too short when screwing them into the deck. Cut the wick long enough to comfortably fit the ends into the juice wells and screw back the deck onto the tank with a quarter turn.
On the vape, the Fat Rabbit Solo RTA is full of flavour close to an RDA and the vapour production is immense. The dual airflow works how it should offering from a restricted DTL vape to a very wide open vape with both airflows open. With an RTA that packs a punch as much as this for a single coil, you really don’t miss a dual coil RTA.
I have seen a few things online in the recent past about leaking issues, but I didn’t experience that at all from the tank. It has been wicked a few times during use without any leaks from the airflow. I don’t know if that is down to luck more than experience, but I didn’t find it too fussy with wicking at all while being generous with the Cotton.
