The Suicide Mods Ether RTA is one other design by Vaping Bogan, AKA Sam, who might be probably the most potty-mouthed of the vape reviewers!

Beforehand we’ve checked out The Odin 100, the Blotto and the Blotto mini.

All of these have been designed by The Vaping Bogan, and so they scored fairly extremely, so I’m to see if the Ether lives as much as what he’s finished earlier than!

What Can We Anticipate From the Suicide Mods Ether RTA?

The Suicide Mods Ether RTA shares it’s title with a Billet Field suitable rebuildable, in addition to one particularly designed for Suicide Mods new Abyss AIO (sidenote: I might love to get my arms on that hype practice and see if it lives up).

That is designed to permit airflow from a decent mouth to lung, by means of to a unfastened restricted direct lung.

If you wish to be taught extra in regards to the completely different kinds of vaping you’ll be able to look right here.

By the way, Ether means “the higher areas of house, the heavens“.

Is it heavenly? I’ll let you recognize!

Suicide Mods say that that is designed to bridge the hole between inexpensive and excessive finish merchandise.

To my thoughts there’s not a lot that units aside “high end” tanks (apart from the worth!), they have a tendency to simply be effectively made, effectively constructed, and have attracted a little bit of a following.

So if the Suicide Mods Ether RTA can ship on that high quality, with out having to interrupt the financial institution, then I’m all for it!

This was despatched over freed from cost for the aim of this overview (thanks) as common freebies don’t have an effect on my opinion, and I’ll report again truthfully with what I discover.

Design and Construct High quality

The Ether RTA is available in 4 colors.

Stainless (which I obtained), Gunmetal, Black and Electrical Blue.

Suicide Mods Ether RTA Colourways

I’ve obtained to say, on first impressions it’s a sensible, stumpy trying little tank!

Suicide Mods Ether RTA – Drip Ideas

You get two brief drip ideas, and one lengthy drip tip.

The brief one which comes preinstalled has a wider bore, extra suited to direct lung, and the opposite two have a thinner bore.

The most effective I can say right here is that it’s good that they provide you choices! In all honesty, I didn’t get on with any of them.

Suicide Mods Ether RTA Drip Tips

I discovered the brief ones too brief for me, so I’d have my lips towards the highest of the tank.

And the longer one with a slim bore didn’t really feel focussed sufficient for the extraordinary mouth to lung that is able to.

Clearly it’s possible you’ll really feel in another way to me, but it surely does use an ordinary 510 connector, so for those who don’t get on with the included drip ideas, it’s simple to swap out to 1 that you just favor.

Suicide Mods Ether RTA – High Cap and Fill Ports

The highest cap is an easy bayonet match design.

Quarter flip and it lifts out simply, very simple to make use of, and I by no means discovered it laborious to open regardless of having nothing to present you any further grip on the highest.

Suicide Mods Ether RTA Top Cap and Fill Ports

Beneath that, you’ve obtained 4 fills ports which are all lots large enough.

Suicide Mods Ether RTA – Physique

There’s a few issues that stand out trying on the Ether., the very first thing to hit me was the full lack of branding!

Actually, when your RTA is on a mod, there’s no textual content, logos, or anything seen in any respect, so this can undoubtedly enchantment to the minimalists on the market.

Suicide Mods Ether RTA Front Shot

The construct high quality on the tank may be very excessive, all the things that’s threaded is tremendous clean.

The end of the steel is freed from any scratches, and it simply seems like a top quality tank.

Glass Part

The opposite noticeable function of it’s the uncommon bell form to the glass.

There’s a constructive and a adverse to this.

On the one hand, I actually like the way in which it appears to be like, I believe bell caps can look nice.

Suicide Mods Ether RTA Glass Sections

In addition they offer you a selection of the clear that comes preinstalled, or a smoked glass, or an ultem model, so you’ll be able to change up the look of your tank.

On the down aspect, for those who ever break it, it’s not the form of easy glass that you could simply steal from one other equally sized tank.

Additionally the bell form means there’s much less safety to drops than you’ll have have been it a straight glass.

So it’s most likely a superb factor that you just get spares within the field with it! But it surely’s one thing to concentrate on for those who’re a butter-fingered vaper.

Extension Glass

The usual glass offers you a 2ml capability, which is ok for a single coil mouth to lung tank.

Although it’s possible you’ll find yourself going by means of it fairly rapidly for those who’re operating a direct to lung coil.

Suicide Mods Ether RTA Glass Pack

You don’t get any extension glass within the field. That’s a separate buy for a pack of three in the identical colors as the usual glass referred to as the “Glass Pack”.

Alternatively you will get tall acrylic tank sections in black, clear, blue, inexperienced or purple.

Within the field you’ll get the extension piece in your chimney, it’s worthwhile to use the prolonged glass.

That is vital because it implies that it may be color matched to the remainder of your tank. Clearly don’t lose this for those who assume you’re going to need to broaden the capability sooner or later!

Disclaimer. I purchased the extension glass out of my very own cash, as a result of I used to be to see the way it appeared and I’m a sucker for a bigger capability. It additionally means I can present you what the tank appears to be like like with it on!

Suicide Mods Ether RTA Extended Glass Added

Not dangerous, but it surely loses among the stumpy enchantment that it has in it’s customary configuration. On the plus aspect, I didn’t discover any loss in flavour.

Suicide Mods Ether RTA – Airflow Management

That is beautiful instance of one thing that Suicide Mods didn’t want to do, however they did it anyway.

The airflow management ring has click on stops, which actually provides to the texture of high quality.

Suicide Mods Ether RTA Wide Airflow

Does it add something to the vape? No not likely. However I prefer it.

At it’s most open you’ve got 4 holes open. Spinning the ring spherical you’ll discover there’s additionally two holes, and one gap on it’s personal, all the similar measurement.

The ultimate place is 1 tiny gap, for a brilliant tight mouth to lung.

Suicide Mods Ether RTA Smallest Airflow

The good factor about this design is that for those who prefer it with two holes open, you’re not reliant on closing down the 4 holes to 2 holes. That means that if it will get jostled and the ring strikes barely, you’re nonetheless going to be on two holes due to how they’re positioned, relatively than opening as much as 3 or closing down to 1.

The Base

So this is the place they put the branding! As you’ll be able to see it’s fairly… busy.

You’ve obtained your regulatory marks, the Suicide Mods emblem, and Bogan’s emblem.

Suicide Mods Ether RTA Base

You may also see the gold plated 510 pin, that protrudes sufficient that I’d be very snug utilizing this on a hybrid mech.

Suicide Mods Ether RTA – Deck

The deck jogs my memory loads of a Kayfun. It’s a easy, two screw deck, however there are a few issues that make it notably good to make use of.

The screws are cross headed, and they’re going to again out fairly a good distance earlier than popping out. So it’s simple to open up the gaps to slot in your coil legs. The screw heads additionally go proper as much as the side-walls, so they’ll entice even skinny coil legs with ease.

Suicide Mods Ether RTA Deck

You even have the choice of utilizing just a little insert (equipped) to limit the quantity of air developing below your coil. It’s a small steel disk, held in place by an o-ring.

How To Construct The Suicide Mods Ether

  • Determine whether or not you need to use the airflow reducer (I did on this construct) and put it in place, loosen the screws from the deck

Undo Deck Screws

  • Place your coil legs below the screw heads, and tighten then right down to entice it

Tighten Deck Screws

  • Use a coiling jig or screwdriver to straighten your coil and ensure it’s lined up over the airflow gap, typically the screws on this sort of deck will attempt to pull it out of place

Suicide Mods Ether RTA Straighten Coil

  • Snip the coil legs near the deck as you’ll be able to, fortunately there’s loads of house to work right here

  • Glow your coil and strum it with ceramic tweezers to take away scorching spots and get it glowing evenly

  • After it has cooled, feed your cotton by means of the coil

Suicide Mods Ether RTA Insert Cotton

  • Trim your wick so that it’ll attain down into the juice wells, I discovered that lining up my scissors to the sting of the bottom made them the right size

Trim Cotton

  • Relying on the inside diameter of your coil it’s possible you’ll have to skinny out your cotton, 2.5mm is just about good and simply required a light-weight fluffing. Then place your cotton tails down into the juice wells. They shouldn’t be stuffed in, too tight and so they’ll choke off the e-liquid provide

Place Cotton in Wick Ports

  • Prime your coil by liberally soaking it with e-liquid


Prime Coil

  • Reattach the principle tank part, regulate the resistance at this level, as if it jumps round massively, it’s possible you’ll be finding out towards the chamber. There’s loads of house above, however an extended coil leg may trigger a brief

Merely take away the highest cap with 1 / 4 flip, and refill together with your most popular e-liquid.


How Does the Suicide Mods Ether Carry out?

I’ve been utilizing this tank for a few weeks now, I’ve tried numerous builds and numerous e-liquids.

For mouth to lung, I used to be often utilizing my favorite Berry Ice by SVC labs, which is a 50/50 VG/PG e-liquid.


For Direct Lung, I’ve used thicker e-liquid, often 70/30. Like Bango Mango by Massive Juice, or Bule Bolu by Coilturd.

Suicide Mods Ether RTA As a Mouth to Lung Tank


Utilizing the airflow reducer makes an enormous distinction to the tank, and for mouth to lung it units it up excellent.

Having a tiny pin prick gap on the skin is nice for getting much less air in, however you probably have an enormous gap beneath your coil it disperses and isn’t concentrated sufficient.

I’ll say that not one of the included drip ideas actually go well with my type of mouth to lung vaping, so I rapidly changed it with one thing extra to my liking.

With that finished, the smallest airflow offers a very nice, tight mouth to lung. On a 1 to 10 scale, the place 1 is unbelievably tight, and 10 is totally open, this can be a 2.5.

Opening up the exterior airflow it is going to turn out to be a looser mouth to lung, however upon getting two holes open that’s about as unrestricted as you’re going to get, because the air is bottle necked by the reducer below the coil.

Absolutely open and it opens as much as round a 4.5.

Suicide Mods Ether RTA Flavour

Flavour was excellent for mouth to lung.

While it’s not what I might think about completely prime tier, it was excellent. I did discover that utilizing easy spherical wire and really low wattage (10-20W) was most likely it’s weakest level.

Placing in a mouth to lung centered complicated coil like a fused Clapton, operating at 25-30W undoubtedly appeared to be it’s candy spot.

Flavour was undoubtedly punchier on this configuration, and up towards a few of my private favorite tanks, it might maintain it’s personal.

As a (restricted) Direct Lung Tank


I’ve obtained to make an admission right here, that I don’t really like restrictive direct lung inhales all that a lot. Give me mouth to lung, or large open, any day of the week!

Having mentioned that, the airflow is certainly within the restrictive class. On the 1-10 scale, totally open it’s someplace round a 7.

You possibly can simply shut this down additional, and more often than not I used to be utilizing it with out the airflow reducer, I really discovered it labored actually properly as a really unfastened mouth to lung vape.

The one factor I might say is that there’s actually no level closing it right down to the tiny pinprick gap.

1 or 2 holes open offers a pleasant unfastened mouth to lung vape. However there’s simply not sufficient air strain on the smallest gap with out the reducer, and all the things feels a bit flat.


Once more it’s managing to tug very nice flavour, the scale of the deck means you’re not going to slot in something large and sophisticated.

3mm is about your restrict.

Under is a photograph of a 3mm fused clapton and you’ll see that it’s simply becoming in there.

Suicide Mods Ether RTA 3mm Coil

Additionally for those who do use a 3mm ID coil, you’ll most likely discover that it’s worthwhile to skinny out your wick quite a bit, as in any other case it is going to completely choke off the juice stream.

The purpose is, that this tank doesn’t want a loopy complicated construct to present nice flavour. Working a single coil across the 35-45W mark, and I used to be completely happy as Larry. Good flavour in each fruit and desert type e-liquid.

Every other ideas or points?

I’ve been utilizing this tank fairly extensively and there’s solely two issues which have irritated me about it (which is fairly good going, I’m very choosy!).

Firstly, there’s various threading. The highest piece is threaded onto the chimney, the chimney threads on to the bottom, and can also be sealed with an o-ring.

Suicide Mods Ether RTA Air Bubbles

As a result of these are all threaded the identical means (I want reverse threading was extra common!) for those who attempt to take the bottom off to entry your deck, there’s a really actual risk you’ll find yourself unscrewing the chimney from the highest cap.

This isn’t helped by the additional o-ring down the place the chimney and base meet, because it simply provides just a little bit extra friction there and makes that bit much less prone to unscrew.

It’s attainable to mitigate this by ensuring that the chimney is admittedly tightly screwed into the highest cap, but it surely’s one thing to concentrate on. Clearly including the extension piece with extra screw threads, solely provides to the problem.

The opposite factor that I discovered is that, particularly with thicker e-liquid, air bubbles have a nasty behavior of getting trapped the place the liquid flows into the deck. It’s no huge deal getting one or two small ones caught there.

However once I was chain vaping on it with 80/20 e-liquid, I did find yourself getting a dry hit, because the cotton couldn’t be resupplied with liquid quick sufficient as a result of air bubbles chopping off entry.

As long as you’re tilting your tank once you vape although, it shouldn’t be a serious difficulty.


  • Nice construct high quality (and 0 branding!)
  • Goes from tight MTL to restricted Direct Lung
  • Good Flavour


  • Can typically unscrew the tank when making an attempt to take away the deck
  • Drip ideas are aren’t nice for MTL (subjective)

Last Evaluate Verdict

In order you’ll be able to most likely inform I used to be fairly impressed with the Ether.

It’s an especially effectively completed tank, that appears just a bit bit completely different attributable to it’s bell form.

Having the ability to present a correct mouth to lung expertise, and a (restricted) direct lung in the identical tank is all the time a problem. So I’m actually impressed with what Bogan has completed right here. Simply goes to indicate that controlling the air developing below your coil is admittedly vital for mouth to lung!

I’m certain some individuals will grumble about having to purchase the extension glass individually, particularly after they put the adapter for it within the equipment. #

However as I say, I believe this can be a intelligent means of with the ability to supply an extension choice for those who need it. While ensuring that the steel is color matched to the tank you’ve got.

It’s obtained luggage of flavour, and is an absolute doddle to construct on, there’s actually not a lot to not like about.
