“If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it”, seems to be Kaees’ motto with this release.
Kaees Solomon RTA Intro
You would not be remiss for confusing the new Kaees Solomon RTA for Wotofo’s “The Troll RTA” – with both designs offering a short and compact tank reservoir and a 24 mm diameter base.
So what makes these designs different from one another? On the surface, maybe not a lot. But as we all know, performance from atomizers can always surprise.

Kaees earns no points for creativity on this one
The Solomon is referred to as both an RTA or GTA – depending on the user – with the “floating” build deck causing some confusion when it comes to the standard naming convention.
However, regardless of its acronym, this 4 mL, 24 mm diameter tank offers a simple, velocity-style build deck that caters specifically to dual coil configurations. (Unlike the Troll, which actually allows for single coil builds).
In addition to this, the dual Cyclops-style bottom airflow allows for full airflow control via the use of a “stopper”, which provides a flavor-centric vaping experience and exceptionally smooth vapor outputs overall. This basic AFC is further complimented by a wide chimney that ensures vapor is kept cooler at higher temperatures.
Objectively, there are no major design flaws within this design – with the primary gripe being the incompatibility with 810 drip tips. To be fair, this is more of a “nice to have” feature that an absolute necessity and let’s be real – you can’t keep everyone happy all of the time.
Kaees have kept things very simple with the Solomon RTA and incorporated various design elements that have a proven efficacy within this category. In effect, they seem to have recreated a popular design rather than innovating the next great masterpiece.
Thus, while it certainly isn’t extraordinary by any stretch of the imagination, it is really not too bad either and could serve as a solid “workhorse” for the brand in the months to come.
