Wondering what is a squonk box? Check out this week's featured blog post to learn about squonk box mods, and how to get squonking.
Squonking is a vaping method that usually involves using a Squonk mod and a bottom-feed rebuildable drip atomizer.
With this setup, you prep your vape by soaking your e-juice into the unit's cotton wick. This is done by using a built-in squeezable e-juice container.
Squonk mods are designed to meet the needs of all styles of vapers, especially those seeking an all-in-one solution, RTAs or RDAs.
One significant benefit to this type of device is that squonk modifications offer larger capacity tanks.
This removes the need to refill your tank as often throughout your day. And you can saturate your wick as needed to enjoy more robust, more flavourful hits.
What Are Squonk Mods?
Squonking mods are comparable to rebuildable dripping atomizers in terms of performance. You drip liquid directly into your atomizer as needed with an RDA or rebuildable drip atomizer.
RDAs are popular because they make switching between flavours a breeze, and the process produces much denser clouds and a more robust flavour than when using a regular tank.
However, the issue with RDAs is that they tend to be a bit messy and inconvenient. You have to keep a bottle of e-liquid on you at all times. And the dripping procedure might result in e-liquid all over your kit.
Squonking provides the same results as using a regular RDA atomizers but avoids the need to drip each time by incorporating a solution directly into the design of the mod.
How Does Squonking Work?
Bottom-feeding squonk mods carry your e-liquid supply inside the mod, allowing you to feed e-liquid directly to the atomizer when and as needed.
The squonk hole on the box mod is a tiny orifice that you squeeze, which will deliver a small amount of e-liquid directly to the atomizer and saturate the wick.
Any surplus will flow back into the bottle when you relieve the pressure on the bottle.
The Different Types of Squonk Mods
You'll sometimes hear of either regulated or non-regulated squonk mods.
Most regulated squonk mods use direct power from the battery. Just like any other traditional type of vape mod, they often include chip technology. This provides users with safety features like short circuit protection, on/off functionality, heat settings, and more.
On the other hand, some vapers prefer non-regulated squonk mods because they provide personalization, and vaping is more of a hobby.
If you're experienced with building vapes, non-regulated devices can be perfectly safe to use.
However, if you are unfamiliar with unregulated devices' lack of safety features, the regulated device is your best option.
What Is Squonking?
The atomizer on a squonk device is usually bottom-fed, which means you can deliver a solid shot of e-juice each time you want to vape.
Rather than needing to “prime” your device or allow your gravity-fed wick to soak naturally, a squonk device offers a more instant way to satisfy that flavour punch.
You'll receive the best flavour delivery and vapour densities as a result of this style of device.
Note that you can't usually use an RDA with any 510 connectors unless it's been converted or supplied with an appropriate bottom feed pin.
How To Squonk?
A squonk mod with a refillable squonk tank is required to get started with squonking.
Note that squonking doesn't work with standard RDAs.
Therefore you'll need to obtain a bottom feed RDA squonk style mod.
After filling your tank and pressing/squeezing the squonk bottle at the bottom of the RDA, your e-juice is forced into the RDA to soak your wick.
Take a puff after pressing the power button on your mod.
You're ready to start squonking now!
