Fat Rabbit RTA: When Hellvape steals a reviewer’s design … again
Hellvape announces the Fat Rabbit RTA, but in reality he shamelessly stole the design of an RTA that was created by Vaping with Vic. The Chinese will remain Chinese.
With great marketing support, Hellvape announces the Fat Rabbit RTA, an atomizer with a capacity of 5.5ml and a diameter of 28mm. There is a deck that can support the dual or the single coil, but it is made for the double coil. The big problem is that Hellvape stole the design of an RTA, proposed by Vaping with Vic, called the “Wulver”.
The Fat Rabbit RTA, an outright theft from Vaping with Vic
Vaping with Vic is the UK’s most popular reviewer in terms of stats. He has created several atomizers in the past, including the Kelpie RTA and the RDA of the same name. These atomizers were manufactured by Ehpro which has gone bankrupt today. The Kelpie RTA is a single coil and Vaping with Vic wanted to offer a double coil RTA that could compete with the Ragnar from Steam Crave, but being cheaper.
He made a partnership with Hellvape and the reviewer created this RTA from a to z. And the proof is when several of these videos, Vaping with Vic is using the Wulver which was to be the original name of this RTA. The Wulver is a wolf-headed creature in Scottish mythology. While the prototype was 90% finished, Hellvape dragged its feet to take it out and then… 2 months later, the brand released the Fat Rabbit RTA with the same airflow, the same deck and the same capacity.
Only the airflow on the deck has been slightly enlarged so as not to be flagged. But it’s outright theft anyway. And especially since this is not the first time that Hellvape behaves like a son of a bitch and perpetuates the image that the Chinese are all thieves and that they are not screwed to have a single original idea!
Hellvape is used to reviewer design flights
Hellvape had previously stolen ideas from Grim Green and other American reviewers. And what Vaping with Vic explains is that the change that Hellvape made to avoid getting flagged risks removing all of the flavors. There was a reason the airflow at the bottom of the Wulver was restricted. It was to have the necessary pressure in the chamber, a prerequisite for having flavor in a cloud chaser.
On the other hand, by enlarging the airflow, the Fat Rabbit RTA risks being a huge chamber with air circulating without ever heating the coils sufficiently. The Ragnar has managed to be both a cloud chaser and good at flavor because its airflow is adjustable to the millimeter. In addition, between the Ragnar and the Fat Rabbit RTA, the former has a lot of advantages like the rather magical tank closure system, which allows you to change coils or cotton without emptying this tank.
And that the capacity of the Ragnar is monstrous with 18 ml in the advanced kit while we have a poor 5.5 ml in the Fat Rabbit. Of course, the price is in favor of the Fat Rabbit RTA ($ 40 for the latter while the Advanced Kit Ragnar is $ 80), but honestly I’d rather save a bit and buy the Ragnar rather than put 40 bullets in an RTA whose design I know was totally stolen from a reviewer.
Afterwards, if the Fat Rabbit RTA is a good tank, you can still buy it, but it still leaves a bitter taste. We have these Chinese companies that keep stealing ideas over and over again without any consequences. Considering the current vaping market, it would be surprising if this Fat Rabbit does good sales and it will be done well for Hellvape!
