What is Squonking?
Squonking is a method of vaping using a squonk mod, typically connected to a bottom-fed rebuildable tank atomiser. There’s a bottle inside the mod itself, next to the battery that is connected to the tank or RDA on top by a small tube. When you squeeze the bottle, juice travels up the tube to saturate the wick. When you stop squeezing, the vacuum created inside the bottle draws excess liquid away. Then, you just press the button and vape as you normally would. As you would when using a normal RDA, once the flavour isn’t as strong and you can tell the coil is drying out, just squeeze the bottle again to refresh it.
Generally, these mods are for more experienced vapers only. Particularly when it comes to combining them with an RDA as you’ll be building your own coils and a lot of these models are unregulated so you’ll need a comprehensive understanding of Ohm’s law.
What are the benefits of Squonk Mods?
- Squonk mods get around the TPD regulations because the bottle inside isn’t classified as a tank. This enables you to carry more juice without refilling. Some mods will have a 2ml tank on top but generally most squonk mods are designed for use with an RDA. The bottle inside can usually hold around 7ml of e liquid.
- These models can come in a kit with their own conventional tank but can also come with an RDA too. They’re a much more efficient way of using an RDA on the go because of the ability to top up the coil without doing so manually with a bottle of juice. The hassle of constantly dripping is taken away as when your coil starts to dry out, just squeeze your squonker to top it up.
- Using a squonk mod means the flavour is fresher too. It’s already enhanced due to the use of an RDA but because you’re only vaping small amounts of juice at a time and drying it off the coil quickly, there’s less condensation and residual liquid sitting on the wick.
- Regardless of whether you prefer a regulated sub ohm experience or a mechanical mod, squonk mods come in both formats meaning no matter your usual vaping style you can still try them out.
Is squonking for me?
If you already enjoy the benefits of RDAs and building your own coils, the convenience and tank capacity of a squonk mod could be for you. They’re easy to use, nicely self-contained and a more convenient way to get the benefits out of dripping without actually having to go through the usual process of topping up the wicking material with juice. They’re good when out and about as you can take a spare battery if you think you’ll be chugging through it all day, and the inner tank means as long as you don’t need more than 7ml of liquid, you’ll have enough to last you the whole time you’re out.
If you want to try squonking for yourself but aren’t quite at the coil-building stage yet, give one a go with a standard tank first to see how you like it.
