Advken Manta RTA Review
So here we have the Advken Manta RTA. And it’s a good one!
Mine was sent to free of charge form Gearbest, so thank you Gearbest 🙂
However, this will not affect my review in any way.
Manta is a 24mm dual coil RTA made by Advken. This is the first ever product made by Advken I have used and I have to say it is a brand I will definitely be interested in trying all their new products in the future. That’s how impressed I am by the Manta RTA.
Packaging And Contents
The Advken Manta RTA comes in an average looking cardboard box with the Manta logo and manta ray background on the front. On the back, you have a list of the contents and the Advken company information.
Everything in the box is nicely presented. You get a spare glass, which is different to the one installed on the RTA ou of the box. It’s the “bubble” type which increases the capacity of the tank from 3.5ml to 5ml. I personally am not a fan of the “bubble” glass look so I will be using the straight glass instead, but that is a just a personal preference. You also get a little bag ox spares, which includes four gold-plated grub screw, a bunch of replacement o-rings, soft cleaning cloth and a rather nic “Doctor Coil” Hex screwdriver.
And of course the RTA itself. I have the stainless steel version and I have to say it looks gorgeous. Very good looking RTA indeed.
Fit and Finish
The Advken Manta RTA is put together exceptionally well. All threads are nice and smooth and I love the overall design. The RTA is primarily made of stainless steel.
It comes with Ultem 810 drip tip which has a Manta branded ring at the bottom, making it look shorter then it is. Not everyone is a fan of 810 drip tips and unfortunately, the RTA doesn’t with 510 adapter. That doesn’t bother me as I do enjoy using the drip tip it comes with, but it might not be for everyone.
The Manta RTA features a gold plated staggered velocity style build deck. Overall it’s easy to build on with plenty of room for bigger coils and massive coil holes big enough for any wire you might want to throw in.
The adjustable airflow features three holes on each side, which is more than enough. I have been using it with one slot open on both sides getting slightly restricted straight lung inhales. The airflow is nice and smooth and fairly quiet.
Wicking is pretty easy as well. I haven’t had any issues at all from the first build. No leaking or dry hits. The RTA doesn’t have juice flow control which had me a bit worried at first as I was sure it will leak when filling, but that has not happened once.
The Manta RTA is a top-fill tank with buttery smooth threads on the top cap and big kidney shaped fill holes. Be it a unicorn bottle or a dropper you won't have any problems filling it.
The gold plated centre pin is protruding enough to be used on a hybrid mod in my opinion.
Flavour and Vapour production
The Manta RTA is extremely flavourful. It is honestly one of the best flavour tanks I have ever used. The vapour production will obviously depend on your build, but throw a couple of Clapton coils in and you will be mistaken for a steam engine. The Manta RTA is producing lovely and thick vapour which is full of flavour. Well done Advken!
Pros and Cons
- Excellent build quality
- Ease of use (building and wicking)
- Looks (somewhat subjective, but it looks great in my opinion)
- Price (£15 in the UK or $21 in the US on Gearbest)
- Only dual coil
- No 510 drip tip adapter
If you read this whole review, I’m pretty sure you know that I really do like the Manta RTA. I honestly love it. If you are a cloudchaser, flavourchaser or even a beginner who wants to get their first rebuildable tank you wont be dissapointed with the Manta RTA. And for £15 (or $21 in the US) it’s a steal.

All the best and Keep On Vaping 🙂
