Today we take a look at the Warrior RDA from Wotofo. If you’re looking for a big, clamp-style BF dripper to add to your arsenal, this atomizer may have what you’re looking for.
The Warrior is was a collaboration project, designed by JMT Elite and Wotofo.
Before we start, let’s take a look at the devices technical specs.

- One spare 810 drip tip
- 510 drip tip adapter
- One piece single coil adapter

The Warrior has a utilitarian feel; everything on the RDA has a purpose, and nothing extra has been added (for looks…). The device is made out of a thick stainless steel, and has a decent weight to it. If you were to accidentally drop the dripper on the ground, chances are it would come out unharmed.
Clamps have never been my favorite post style. They’re can be a bit finicky, especially if you’ve never used them before. I found myself (as with other clamp style decks) turning the topper upside down during coil installation, to open the clamps.
The 4mm juice well seems a bit small for such a large RDA. The Warrior is built for large ID style coils which is always a plus, and installs are tightened down with beefy looking Phillips head screws.
Ease Of Use
From install to wicking, the Warrior was a breeze to build on. The RDA is assembled in no time after saturating all o-rings with e-juice. Disassembly takes a bit longer, due to the ultra smooth texture of the outer sleeve. However, I was not a fan of the airflow on the Warrior. The 1mm beehive-style holes seem like a good idea at first (more levels of adjustment), but ended up being a real pain.
Now let’s get right into the positives and negatives!
The Good Stuff
- Great flavor
- Great cloud production
- Easy to build on
- Well made
- Comfortable to use, knurled 810 is perfect
- Spare 810 looks awesome
- Stays cool to the touch, even after multiple pulls
- Spacious deck, for large ID coils
- Sturdy posts
- Gold plated 510 connection
- Beefy o-rings
- Spare colored drip tip
The Not So Good Stuff
- Airflow too tight. Adjustments are a pain to make, and sometimes require removal of the top-cap
- 25mm diameter really limits proper fitment to newer style mods
- Tool for adjusting post screws
- Can’t choose color of spare 810 style drip tip
- 810 drip tip is to short. Heat from the rda is transferred to the tip in hurry, making it uncomfortable to use after a short period of time
- Airflow leaks e-juice, either as a cause of a short juice well, the small size of holes, or a combination of the two
- 4mm juice well is too shallow to drip freely
- The AFC and sleeve have no contrast, making it nearly impossible to see how the airflow is currently adjusted
The Wotofo Warrior is a great dripper that suffers from a few minor flaws in design. The leaky airflow issue is a real disaster. And the 4mm juice well means one must drip with caution. The leaking could most likely be solved by a increase in juice well depth (moving the coils further down and away from the airflow holes.) Unfortunately, wiping e-juice spit-back from the airflow after every few pulls is not worth the effort in my book.
