Alpine RDTA Review


The Alpine RDTA is produced by a company named Syntheticloud Tech  LLC. They are based in San Diego California. Syntheticloud was formed by a group of mechanical and electrical engineers sharing the same passion for vaping. Their vision was to introduce practical and innovative products to the vaping community. The team employed six months of research and development, revisions, and final prototypes. Their products are very user-friendly and maintain high standards.

Price Review

Syntheticloud Alpine RDTA’s price is only 32.99 USD. This is something I’m very happy about as it definitely is a big bang for the buck. Design-wise, it looks very expensive, especially with its 24K gold-plated internals.

Online Shop

I bought mine online at this site called I actually bought two items from them including this device. They have a great collection of different vaping paraphernalia, accessories, and e-juices.  I believe their site offers one of the cheapest rates online. I had no qualms purchasing from them. The service (especially shipping) was smooth and fast.

Design Review

This has got to be one of the best looking RDTA I have ever purchased. The silver and gold combo looks very pleasing to the eyes. Not only does it look and feel good, it’s very functional. The gold plated internals are designed for good conductivity of heat.

Just a few things to look into when you unbox and assemble this. When building, the parts are a bit tight so make sure to lube it. The main reason I like my Syntheticloud Alpine is how convenient it is to refill the e-juice. It has a 3mm center-top fill that’s just the right size. The size and the placement are so on point that there is little to no spillage at all. As a chain vaper myself, I find refilling very tedious, so Alpine’s design is very convenient for me to use.  Another feature is its build deck. It’s aesthetically built with an accent using the titanium screws. The deck is also wider than most atomizers, so there are no issues about the spit back. This can also accommodate a wide range of coils.  For those who want to experiment with the right flavor and vapor production, I would recommend this one. With its top and bottom airflow, one can easily adjust both the flavor and cloud.

Performance Review

Syntheticloud is known initially because of its Aeolus. Alpine’s quality and performance are on par with the former. This RDTA can give me the robust flavor I am looking for and the right thickness of cloud. I am in the middle when it comes to taste versus cloud chasing. I like it with a throat hit and a thick, dense cloud at the same time. Using a 73VG e-juice and adjusting power to 65w, I think I got the combo right.  I also prefer opening the top airflow halfway and closing the bottom airflow entirely. Also, try using thinner cotton and make sure that the wick holes are not stuffed with cotton. This way, you can get the right flavor. At the end of the day, getting your preferred results is just a matter of using the right techniques on the device you are using.
