Dream BT801 Rebuildable atomizer
Stainless steel body design
The atomizer consists of the ventilating cap as well as the heating base with the rebuildable heating coil and wick.
Air flow controller screws up and down to control airflow.
Resistance of included wick/coil about 2.2-2.6ohm (Tolerance:0.1-0.3 )
Compatible with 510
14mm Overall Diameter
26mm Overall Length (without drip tip)
Ok, good, same as Phoenix to me, but I am not all that into rebuildables and I am positive others will have a much better experience than I could ever get. The airflow controller is pretty cool, went from little airflow to a LOT. Seems like this might be useful to some people.
Direct From Rolygate at ECF... a Warning:
Please note very carefully that rebuildable atomizer coils and wicks have known risks.
Rebuildables are for experts, not average or beginner vapers with no multimeter or knowledge of how to use a meter, or when a meter must be used, or how electronic devices work. These materials cannot safely be used by the inexperienced or those without basic knowledge of electronics.
This is because:
1. A rebuildable coil/wick MUST be tested carefully with a meter before it is used.
2. If it is not tested it may damage the device it is used on.
3. Faulty wicks/coils WILL blow electronic devices.
4. New coil/wick units must be tested and then used first on a strong basic electrical APV such as a Silver Bullet, that will not be destroyed by a short circuit.
5. No new coil/wick assembly should be used on an electronic device until known to be safe.
6. These items destroy electronic devices if faulty. This is a known issue.
7. These items have inherent risks and may go faulty at any time even if they were originally in good working order. The owner bears the cost of equipment damaged as a result.
8. RAs or RTAs must only be used on equipment that cannot be seriously damaged or harm the user. In practice this could mean an electrical device with a hot spring (fuse) or an electronic device that will not activate if there is a short-circuit (a dead short). Unfused devices or unprotected electronic devices will suffer damage when used with a faulty RA or RTA.

I really wanted to like this atty, but compared to a Phoenix clone it just doesn't work well at all. First-off I had to scrap the included coil and soak ALL the parts in soapy water to remove the machine-oil residue that was in every nook & cranny of the atty, unless you like a vape that tastes like WD-40. Uhg! Then I had to add a very small piece of clear tape to the threads of the airflow control just to keep it from spinning to a different position with every touch of my mod. If you want lots of vapor you'll need a very airy draw, otherwise you'll have a harsh vape that nics you out quickly. I also tried the "donut" (circle) method of building the wick to help with wicking (found on YouTube) and it did help with wicking a bit, but the atty still didn't hold much juice so I was always dripping. I also found it even more difficult than even the tiny screws of the Phoenix clone in order to screw the coil down with my age-addled hands. I'll stick to my Phoenix and add this atty to my box of failed vaping gear.

Just got mine in today, and other than the air control ring moving around, this thing is a monster. Very impressed and think I might pick a few more up just to have around soon....well worth the cost and would recommend to anyone looking into RBA's. Pros: great vapor production, adjustable air control, adjustable center pin, looks like it can be outfitted with up to four wicks if you add some extra screws (it already has the screw holes) negatives: would rather see finger screws then eye glass screws, didn't come with a screwdriver (so if you don't have one buy a kit from walgreens or something) loose threaded adjustment ring (not a major issue however) This however is just a quick 5 minute jot of original thoughts within first few hours though so take with a grain of salt.

I really like the adjustable air flow but it was loose and moved all over....so what I did was just get a narrow piece of regular ole cellophane tape and placed a piece long enough to go about halfway around the threads, then put the ring back on and it was tightened up and works great!

At first I almost chucked it because I thought it was not working right. Since it was my first rebuildable, I started researching on how to set it up. I did chuck the silica and coil it came with. Could not get the machine oil taste out. Even with PGA. So I made a wick out of braided 1mm silica wick I had and made a loop out of it with 32g Kanthal at ~ 2ohms. This little device is incredibly awesome!! My juice flavor really comes through now. I love it, buy it, you will like it too. I just need to get something that will vape all day without having to refill it all the time. I go around 5 drops, any more and it will leak out the holes. I'm going to get a full size Genesis. I will definitely keep this little jewel for tasting my recipes!

Mine tasted like kerosene at first. I sprayed with watered down soft soap and rinsed several times...perfect. Just for drippin it makes great flavor vape. Very airy with 3 holes open. Really needs just 1 i would think. Looks really cute on those mini eGo 350mAh bats from DV. Great for testing flavors when your concocting juices.

not in love with the ring I plugged two of the three holes and it hits great try it and you will see . If I could lock the ring I would use it but moves to easy. It did have a oil like taste when new but after a half day of burning old juice in it taste fine now. I'm going to buy another one

First off out of the box you may or may not be able to use this. My unit still had a small amount of machine oil in it. I removed the wick and coil and cleaned the atty. That didn't quite work. Apparently the wick had absorbed some of the machine oil so I replaced the wick with cotton yarn made a new coil and it works very good. I still need to tweak my coil and wick set up but I cannot blame this atty for that. The adjustable airflow works very well. I am not a fan of the original drip tip that came with it. There is a small ledge inside the tip that liquid tends to gather on but hey its a free drip tip.

This Is my third rebuildable from DV and stands as the best right now. I love how easy it is to put a new coil in it and the spring loaded center pin works on any mod no matter how deep your 510 connection is. Takes any drip tip I throw at it without a problem. Word of caution though, if you over drip you will get a juice down your mod so keep a sharp eye on how much your putting into it.

The Dream BT801 Rebuildable atomizer is a perfect introduction for any vapor to try a dripping style rebuildable atomizer.. The build quality is amazingly nice and vapes quite well.. It really looks nice on any style of pv or mod as well, so don't be afraid to try this atomizer from Discount Vapers.. The customer service is 5 stars in my book, Eric is very professional and takes care of his customers.. Their shipping is very fast and is always on time..

This unit has simple and strong construction, produce great vapors. It is my favorite unit for batch testing trials, because of the small but not too small capacity, just right to do a third or half day vapping (depending on your habit) to fully test new e-liquid and mixes.
The adjustable intake is great to modify the air ratio, but you can use it even without it.
I raise the coil a little bit to keep it and the wick in it too immersed in liquid, fine tuning the heat/wet proportion.
Of course like any of this type of unit, and more so with the three hole, it would leak if tilted, but that is not what it is designed for.
Ultimately it is a great rebuild-able at an excellent price.

I'm impressed. I cleaned mine with Everclear. I smelled manufacturing oil on the atty. Heck, for 8.99 I didn't expect perfection. But the build is. Vapes like a monster. Nice addition to my RBA collection. I'll be back.

Unlike the other person who has left a review, I have not had any issues with a burnt taste with this atty.
I love the adjustable air flow with it. As I am use to using genesis atties I am use to an open draw so normally I would have to make the air hole bigger. Didn't have that headache with this one.

terrible burnt rubber taste, cleaned it like 3 times changed wick and coil etc etc etc.
All to no avail. still tastes bad. junk garbage dont buy. oh by the way mine shipped without the air ring but eric took care of it and send me one.
good service just poor design by the maker.
