The Brunhilde RTA is a collaboration between Vapefly and German 103 and is easily one of our best selling atomizers. The attention to detail, both from an aesthetic and engineering perspective, is phenomenal. Let’s dive in and have a closer look at this atomizer.
The Brunhilde features solid stainless steel construction and a pyrex glass chamber. The glass is protected within the stainless steel housing, which is a nice attribute considering how easy it is to break some tanks. Technically, the Brunhilde is closer to an RDTA than a RTA: the deck sits completely separate and above the liquid chamber. It is quite a tall tank at 65.5 mm in height, so you’ll want to take that into consideration when deciding which mod to pair it with.
The Brunhilde has two separately controlled, independent airflow ports. The honeycomb airflow on the barrel sleeve has eight good sized (1 mm) air holes that direct air towards your coil. The secondary airflow comes up through a bridge between the posts themselves and is directed at the center of the coils. This allows airflow to wash over your coils from both sides providing just the right amount of turbulence to bring out the flavour of your vape.
You can adjust your airflow by simply turning the barrel. The airflow control to your coils from the bridge is located on the side of the barrel (single large hole). The honeycomb (external) airflow can be adjusted by spinning the barrel from the top of the cap. It is completely customizable, so you can leave the full eight air holes open or close it down to a single airflow hole.
The Brunhilde also makes use of four stainless steel rope-style wicks, that help to draw liquid from the generously sized 8 ml tank. If wicking tanks has been a problem for you in the past, this may just be the atomizer that changes your mind. The Brunhilde is exceedingly simple to wick. Simply trim your wicks to touch the ports of the tank- no messing about with determining exactly where your wicks need to be to keep them wet and your tank from leaking. The rope-style wicks will help to draw liquid from the barrel. As your e-liquid runs down, you can simply tilt the atomizer to help the wicking process along. A sizeable side port makes refilling easy, and is designed to fit Chubby Gorilla V3 bottles perfectly.
The velocity-style build deck has four individual post holes with side hatch screws for easy installation of dual coil builds. The deck itself is 25 mm and quite spacious. No need for tiny coils to fit this atomizer- it will handle all of your regular builds. My current favourite coils for the Brunhilde are our 3 mm ID Alien Framed Staples: nice beefy coils that deliver a good dose of flavour and vapour. Even though they are a larger coil, they fit very nicely with no crowding. Of course, you’ll want to choose your coils to suit your particular set-up but your options are wide open.
The Brunhilde RTA comes with an Allen key for tightening the deck screws, extra O-rings and screws, an extra stainless steel wick in case you lose one, and a set of factory made coils and Firebolt cotton to get you started.
