Is the Yup RDA an alternative to the Dead Rabbit?
Famovape kindly sent me the Yup RDA to review. Thank you for that 🙂
They are a reasonably new company with only a few products to their name right now but it seems the Fat Baby Mesh tank is going down well as I’ve seen a few people on the group asking where to get them from. Famovape are wanting to bring fashionable, reliable and quality goods to the market and have spent a long time developing each product. I will be reviewing the Fat Baby Mesh tank & Bit Box at some point in the future as well but on with the Yup RDA.
The Yup RDA is a post-less Y-shaped deck with top airflow. It has a clean design with a what I can only assume a Mickey Mouse hand doing the peace sign. It is an attractive piece of kit for all genders! With different colours available you will find something for you.
The only way I can describe the deck is it’s a bit like the Dead Rabbit but is the Yup any better?

How does it perform?
So easy to build on! You can pretty much stick the coils in and snip the excess off but I do it my way, put them in and guesstimate the length and 99% of the time I get it bang on. Putting the coils in and straightening them is very easy on this Y-shaped deck. The deck is not very deep and once you’ve got the wick in there is very little space for the juice to sit in. This well issue was always a problem for me with the Dead Rabbit, I would over drip it and it would just leak like mad. The Yup is no different. I either over drip, drip ever minute or dry hits. I find it very difficult to find the balance. My issues however don’t come up too often so this is just an over dripper’s problem but these wells are too small for me.
This deck will be perfect for beginners to building looking for a good quality RDA to learn to build on then this is perfect.
I think the airflow contributes to the great flavour you get from this RDA. The airflow is lined up directly at the coils and it works a treat. You can reduce the airflow and flavour becomes even more intense. It’s a great RDA for getting the best from a juice. So flavour is spot on from this RDA.
I have a set of Frailens in the Yup and I think about 3mm ID and 5 wraps, not small coils. So vaping at 115W and the clouds are amazing! Big thick plumes with each inhale. I think they have made a great balance between flavour and cloud chasing. If you love to fog a room out you will love this!
It is fantastic but it does have its flaws. Flavour and cloud production are excellent and I really think this is a selling point. However the juice well taints it a bit. It look’s great and performs well but I don’t think it would be in regular rotation, much like the Dead Rabbit.
