The Wotofo Profile 1.5 RDA is the latest rendition of the very popular Profile Mesh RDA. The original Profile was possibly the RDA with the largest impact on the market. It brought rebuildable mesh atomizers back, and ranked as the top RDA in 2018 due to its innovative design and excellent performance.
Now Wotofo cooperate with Mr.JustRight1 again for the second RDA in Wotofo Profile series. The Wotofo Profile 1.5 is a 24mm squonk-first RDA, with a number of improvements that range from minor to significant. It features a larger build deck, wider mesh strip design and more adjustable and smoother airflow for better flavor. If you love the original Wotofo Profile RDA tank, you definitely need to try this newly-released upgraded version.

Build Quality and Design of Wotofo Profile 1.5 RDA
The overall construction of the Wotofo Profile 1.5 RDA is similar to the original Wotofo Profile. The bulk of the chassis made of stainless steel. The kit comes with 2 drip-tips, the second 810 is much lower in height, and also has a beveled top end, which is comfortable but it feels a little short leaving your lips touching the top-cap. The pre-installed 510 pin is surrounded by a German PEEK Insulator. The Wotofo Profile 1.5 RDA is suitable for most box mods but is primarily designed for a squonk mod.
The noticeable difference between the Profile and the Profile 1.5 is the airflow holes. Wotofo has moved away from a honeycomb airflow design that featured 19 small holes on either side in a honeycomb style. The Profile 1.5 uses two rows of 10 straight holes on each side, which is a lot more adjustable and allows you to use any amount of lower airflow holes and open up the top cap. The Profile 1.5 is more like an airier RDA compared to the original Profile.
When the top cap off, the differences between the build decks are obvious. The Profile 1.5 top cap is much thinner, allowing for a much larger build deck. The mesh stripes are much wider for intense flavor and massive vapor production. The new nexMESH strips in the box do not match the original Profile RDA, or the Profile Unity RTA as the new strips are 1.4 times wider.
Build Deck of Wotofo Profile 1.5 RDA
The deck of the Wotofo Profile 1.5 RDA is much larger for easier building and wicking. The clamps are 1.4 times wider and mounted at an angle, which will move to the sides easily when unscrewing the deck screws. The ceramic block with a stiffer spring is flat and ridged that can easily channel e-liquid to the sides.
The mesh strips measure at 17 mm by 8.5 mm, which are a little bit larger than the original Profile. If you want to use the older strip, you will need to use less cotton or you will end up with the coils. These huge cotton pieces cannot fit in the old strips, and the flavor will sacrifice too.
Building and Wicking of Wotofo Profile 1.5 RDA
If you have used the original Profile, the building on the Profile 1.5 is the same. If you haven’t built a mesh RDA before, read the following guide to learn how to build and wick the Wotofo Profile 1.5.
- Take a mesh strip and roll it on the thicker side of the included coiling rod, making it rounded and semicircular
- Unscrew the 2 Phillips head deck screws on either side of the deck, and check the coil has a well rounded shape
- Use the Mesh forming tool, slightly bend the mesh strip around the thicker end of the mesh forming tool
- Gently place the mesh strip between the 2 clamps, and tighten down the screws
- Take the included cotton and pass it through the mesh strip, gently push the ceramic part downwards
- The cotton strip fits much easier inside the mesh, and you don’t need to waste time on combing or cutting
- Cut the ends of the cotton at an angle, allowing e-juice to flow better when squonking. Leave the bottom part a little longer, hanging approximately 2 to 3mm outside of the deck.
- Gently tuck the cotton into the juice well and start saturating the cotton
This Wotofo Profile 1.5 RDA is primarily deisgned squonking. The squonk pin is pre-installed Squonking is a very reliable way to make surer that the e-liquid is fully saturating the cotton right in the middle, as apposed to dripping on top of the mesh strip and only covering the top of the cotton.
Attention: It is very important to saturate the cotton wick properly before firing or you may get a burnt hit out of the RDA. I recommend you to drip, wait and repeat, then fire at a lower wattage. Repeat at least several times until the cotton is fully saturated. Then you can vape at a higher wattage
Wotofo Profile 1.5 RDA Performance
There are three mesh strips included in the box:
- nexMESH CHILL A1 0.15 ohm, rated for 60-80 watts
- nexMESH TURBO A1 0.13 ohm, rated for 60-80 watts
- nexMESH EXTREME A1 0.16 ohm, rated for 60-80 watts
The 3 mesh strips are supposed to perform differently, but the difference are not obvious.
nexMESH CHILL 0.15 ohm:
The CHILL is extremely similar to the Wotofo mesh for the original Profile. The CHILL features the least amount of surface area. It is a somewhat cooler vape. The flavor is the same as the original 0.18 ohm Wotofo Strips at 55W.
nexMESH TURBO A1 0.13 ohm:
The TURBO modelled after the previous nexMESH strips is really different from the original Profile. It covers more surface area. TURBO is warmer and more flavorful. You will enjoy the warm vape and cloudy vapor production.
nexMESH EXTREME A1 0.16 ohm:
The EXTREME is a regular, old-school type mesh strip without the flat parts at the ends. It is an extremely tightly knit mesh. The EXTREME is the warmest, with comparable flavor to the TURBO.
Wotofo Profile 1.5 RDA Review
Overall, the Wotofo Profile 1.5 RDA is better than the original Profile. The improvements are minimal but noticeable. Profile 1.5 is much easier to work with. The deeper juice well allows for more time between dripping/squonking. The larger mesh area to saturate will result in more of a drain in your e-liquid consumption.
If you already own the original Profile RDA, you will not rush out to pick up the Profile 1.5. If you don’t own a Profile and enjoy using a squonk mod, the Wotofo Profile 1.5 RDA is the best mesh RDA for you.
