With the positive hype around the RDA Squonking features, I had to do some research and found that this specific comprehensive vape blog below from Vaping360 was the most informative and is definitely a must read.
With an added bonus of having a comparison on the latest “Squonk kits and devices” available at the end of 2017 and also into 2018, I had to also add in the write up on the classic “Coppervape BF (Bottom Fed) 18650 Mech Mod at the end of the blog.”
Original write up/blog was Initially posted and supplied courtesy of the Vaping360 Team on November 2, 2017
“A look at the best Squonk mods at the end of 2017 (and also into early 2018)”
“So, what if you could drip without dripping and still enjoy the inherent performance of a conventional RDA?”
“Good news, you can!”

This squonk mod is a regulated device, unlike your typical mechanical squonkers out there. It goes up to 100 W, and features a big OLED screen.

“Regulated bottom feeder mods are rarer than unicorns. Not anymore. Sigelei has stepped up to the plate with the Fuchai Squonk 213. Don’t let the name fool you, this mod has a max output of 150 W when using a 21700 cell. Unfortunately, it doesn’t come with one. The kit includes the Fuchai RDA.
The Sigelei Fuchai Squonk 213 also works with a 20700 or 18650, which will give you about 90 W of power. The interface is very much like the original Fuchai 213 dual battery mod.

Designed for use with the Apocalypse RDA, but can be used with any squonk-ready dripper 25 mm or smaller in diameter. Constructed out of waterproof hard plastic, this box is truly Armageddon-proof.
