Squonking or bottom feed is a relatively old style of vaping. It will appeal to anybody that uses an RDA and drips. With a bottom feed device, there is no need to be dripping the whole time; you just squeeze the silicone juice bottle. Perfect for if you are driving, or out and about.
There any tens of thousands of different squonkers or bottom fed devices out there, and around the same number of RDA that are compatible with bottom feed devices
There are two main categories of Squonker or bottom fed device, Regulated or mechanical.
What does this mean? Well its simple(ish).
A regulated mod has a circuit board protecting the battery and devise and usually has various settings you can adjust Ohm’s, wattage, Temp control and pre-heat functions etc.
Mechanical mods supply power straight to the atomizer, without being passed through a board. This means you can’t adjust the wattage or anything actually. You control the type of vape, through the type of coil you build. This is my personal favorite type of squonker, I love it with the right build, RDA, mod and battery you have a hard-hitting device with flavor for days...
You require an Ohms reader(Or regulated mod) to check your coil resistance, you also need to be aware of battery safety ie battery drain, headroom etc. With the internet at hand, this is relatively easy, I use steam-engine to check my built against my battery, to make sure I am safe.

Unregulated modes are for more advanced users, but are still very safe as long as you follow some basic rules.
There are many different shapes, sizes and colours of Squonk bottles constructed from different materials.
Choices in Material:
Choices in Colour:
My favorite is 6ml round super soft silicone bottles,
Contacts can be made from any metal that conducts electricity well.Some examples
Dependant on the device, most common battery size is 18650. 20700 are now also more widely used as they have a larger capacity. You also have a choice of single or dual(Parallel or series) battery.
I prefer single cell 18650 as this ensures a nice compact device. I use Sony VTC5A batteries, currently one of the best on the market for mechanical mods.
I think Squonking came about as someone was sick and tired of dripping but loved the flavor an RDA. So they made an RDA you no longer need to drip on.
I love Squonking and I'm sure you will too! If you have any questions please let me know and I will be happy to help.Click to contact us!
