The Black Carbon DLC Tripod is Atmizoo's durable hardened black iteration of the extremely popular Tripod RTA, now in a Diamond-Like Carbon coated finish!
This special edition Carbon Black version of the Tripod RTA is a dark shade of black, typical of carbon (coal) and closer to darker black shades, produced in nature from charring organic materials such as wood or bone. DLC colours typically range from anthracite to deep black. Atmizoo has preferred the deeper black treatment over lighter and more greyish colour options, and the dark matte result was enhanced with the application of sandblasting on all outer surfaces prior to the DLC treatment.
Diamond-Like Carbon coating offers a unique combination of high hardness and a distinctive durable finish. Due to its properties, it is widely used from functional high-hardness applications (such as with tool hardening and higher wear resistance on parts), to decorative lower-hardness but still high-quality applications such as on watches, jewelry, gadgets, etc. The design of the Tripod RTA and the parts it comprises, have allowed Atmizoo to only treat the outer visible parts, leaving the inner working parts untreated. inner parts that deal with higher temperature and strain through regular operation (such as scratches and bumps on the deck from rebuilding, friction of base when mating with mods, etc) have been left uncoated as natural SS316F. The treated components include the AFC Ring, Chimney, Seal, and Top Cap. This way, the visual result is ideal, ensuring a cohesive look with long term durability while at the same time protecting the aforementioned inner working parts.
new approach to 22mm RTA design for single coil setups. It offers an unparalleled vaping experience focusing on performance, versatility and ergonomics.

With its enhanced flavour and vapour production, potential for variable specs, instant real time access to deck, instant top refill system, easy rebuilding and attention to details, the Tripod is one step ahead of most RTA's on the market.
The deck of the Tripod is targeted for single coil setups with design details aiming to facilitate and improve rebuilding process as much as possible. Focusing on some of them, you can see high precision large pan head phillips post screws, conveniently placed rails to capture wire either between rail and screw head / body or around screw body (depending on wire gauge), cut-outs on outer deck rim for easier rebuilding, cut-outs on inner deck rim plus cotton wells to help proper cotton placement and liquid distribution along cotton body, sufficient liquid intake slots on deck sides (approximately 4.0mm x 2.0mm). The Tripod deck can literally host any size of single coil build, from classic small sized coils up to large complex/exotic coils.
The Air Flow
You may tune air flow via four MTL pin options (1.0mm, 1.2mm, 1.5mm, or 1.8mm) pinned inside a 4.0mm diameter nest. You may also regulate more "airy" flow via the external Air Flow Control System (AFCS) Ring located at the base of the atomizer, adjusting from zero to 4.0mm full open air diameter.
The Adjustable Chamber and Chimney
With the Tripod, we introduce the Chamber and Chimney (C&C) Reducer assembly. It consists of two parts that sandwich the upper part of the Chimney. When assembled, the C&C Reducer forms a vaporization chamber with lower volume (approximately 5.3mm chamber height) and a chimney with 3.0mm inner diameter, focusing on flavour oriented setups rather than vapour production. When removed, the chamber offers approximately 9.0mm coil height space and the chimney gets approximately 5.3mm inner diameter, with proper geometry to get all the clouds you want. The C&C Reducer actually offers you the potential of two different chamber and chimney geometries, thus two different single coil RTAs.
The Drip Tip
The custom drip tip that comes with the device is a two-part assembly as well, with its two parts sandwiching the Top Cap to ensure extra stability when removing top cap to refill. The drip tip is easily removable to let you use your own 510 drip tip.
The standard liquid capacity of the Tripod RTA is 2.0 mL, but can be extended with the >> Tripod Black Carbon DLC 3.4 mL Extension Kit <<, which increases the overall height of the Tripod by only 6mm while maintaining a match to the colour and finish to this Black Carbon DLC version!
Atmizoo has based the design of the Tripod on the concept of a threadless mechanism with twist and pull / push actions in order to design and manufacture high precision parts that make vaping with an RTA so much easier. Instant access to deck can't get any simpler and quicker. You just twist, align the small triangles that are located on the sides of the chimney and deck and then pull in order to access your deck very quickly, any time, even with a full tank of liquid. A similar concept is applied to the top cap for refilling liquid, simply align triangles on the side of the top cap with the dot on the rim on the tank and pull up to refill through the large liquid slots. No need to worry if the dots and triangles are difficult to see, you can twist while pulling gently until you feel with the tabs locate to the notches as the unlocking point of each mechanism.
