Goon Vs Kryten: The RDA Battle


In this video I have some fun comparing the Goon RDA to the Kryten RDA! It’s not a full review on either one, but I thought it would be interesting to see the similarities and differences between the two.

In this video I compare the Goon 24mm copper with the Kryten, both authentic. However, you can get a Goon clone or a Kryten clone if you’re turned on by this video but cannot afford them.

Goon Vs Kryten: The Verdict

  • Build quality – Both atomizers have great build quality, but I think the Goon has a slight edge here.
  • Performance – The Goon with its copper center pin give me slightly quicker firing that the Kryten with its stainless steel center pin.
  • Building & wicking – I have to give this one to the Goon. The Kryten has a steeper learning curve for building and wicking, mostly dues to the posts being so far to the edge. With some practice you will be able to get it right.
  • Squonking – The Goon is squonk-able, but only with the bottom-feeding pin which is sold separately. The Hadaly comes with a squonk pin that works perfectly well, so the Kryten takes this one home. Its one of the top squonk atomizers I have on my list.
  • Airflow & flavor – The airflow is slightly better on the Goon at the half-open setting. Wide open, I noticed almost no difference between the two.
  • Clouds – Both can give you clouds, bro.

In my opinion, the winner is the Goon RDA. It is without doubt the best 24mm RDA I own. I have yet to try the 22mm version but I’m sure that will be crazy good as well.

The Kryten is solid, but I just wish the build deck as a bit more easier to work with. Of course, you’re not going to put a build in here every day, and you can always find tutorials online that teach you how to build on it.
