Many times, I’ve been asking what the. Best device to use for flavour and holds a decent amount of e-liquid, when I say have you tried squonking I usually get looked at like I’ve just offended someone so here is what it’s all about.
Squonk mods are devices that contain a small, squeezable bottle that is designed to hold e-liquid. The idea is that the bottle, when squeezed, will push e-liquid up, through a narrow tube, and in to a squonk compatible RDA (Rebuildable Dripping Atomiser). Squonk compatible RDAs (sometimes also known as BF RDAs), will have a relatively hollow 510 pin. It is designed this way to allow liquid to pass into the RDA from the bottle below. This eliminates the need to re drip every ten to fifteen puffs or so, as all you must do is squeeze the bottle to replenish the liquid on to the wicking cotton.
There are many different squonkers on the market right now, in all shapes, sizes, colours and materials. There are mechanical squonkers (be careful when using a ‘mech’ as it has no regulatory features, nor in built safety features. They’re mainly recommended for experienced vapers with an understanding of Ohm’s Law). There are also an increasing number of regulated squonkers that are becoming extremely popular and affordable.
Also, there are an increasing number of RDAs being manufactured to accommodate a BF (Bottom Feed) 510 pin, creating lots of customisable opportunities depending on style, performance, and personal preference.
Drawbacks of squonking can include moderate leaking due to accidental squeezing of the in-built bottle, as many bottles only need a gentle squeeze to squirt out eliquid.
Also, the ability to quickly change flavours is somewhat hindered due to the fact one generally must vape a squonk bottle’s worth of eliquid before changing the flavour, however, this is not necessarily a bad thing as some vapers prefer to stick with one or two flavours anyways.
Lots of squonk mods (although not all) are single battery mods, this is usually down to the fact manufacturers need to accommodate space for the squonk bottle. This can cut your battery life down significantly, but there are due battery mods also on the market but bear in mind these maybe a lot larger that their single battery siblings.
There are many positives for squonking, they look stylish, are extremely effective and practical, and cuts down the need to constantly re drip your coils and a lot of them are customisable.
Many vapers enjoy single coil builds on a squonkers, this makes it possible to potentially conserve battery power by using a lower wattage. A huge positive is that many single coil RDAs designed for use in squonking have out of this world flavour.
Whether or not you think squonking is for you, I would recommend everyone tries one at some stage.
