What am I missing?
« on: July 12, 2017, 05:06:10 PM »
Ok boys.... So squonking.....

I have my dripper, with its squonk pin, atop of my dripbox 160w squonking mod thingy.... and I'm just not getting whats so good about it? I have tried to get into it, but its all so 'Meh' :( Doesn't taste any better than the same liquid in a tank.
Could it be cos I only have one coil? Should I try two? Maybe I should just try dripping again for a while and see how I get on with that.

Or maybe I just need to wait for my 'super special' ready made coils to arrive....  :think:

Well yes. A squonker
(Which as you say is just a lazy man's way of dripping)
will only be as good as the rda you have attached to it.

And yes. Dual coil all the way  :thumbs:

Well for me it has made a huge difference, not so much with the Kanger because I really didn't give it much of a chance. I also was going to use one coil but after Tids said to use two that's what I did, and I have to say I do think he was right. I did think that it would be too strong but as it happens it's spot on. The first day or so I did notice a slight difference but as the coils and cotton bedded in that's when I got full blown flavour, my ornate ect doesn't even come close. I've not tried making my own coils and to be honest I'm not sure I ever will, the ones I got from Amazon weren't too expensive and I'm sure that there are better bargains out there. My DNA is set to 45 watts and that's the sweet spot for me, any higher it does get too hot.

Well my new coils landed in the uk and are on the way to the postoffice, so might get them tomorrow. If so I'll stick a couple of twisted-coiled-braided specialities in and see if I can become a squonk-aholic like you guys.

You've got to remember (And I'm sure you don't need to be told this)
The squonker mod itself is only a tool to mount your rda on. Its the rda and how its set up that makes all the difference.
Put the same rda on another non squonker mod and it'll do exactly the same thing (Just without the convenience of the bottom juice feed)

Both Len and I have Goon V1.5 clone on its way and will be trying that out on my Kanger 160w.
If it's any good I'll let you know as that would be a good way of trying a decent dual coil set up  ;)

I have one of those..... Can't remember what its called hang on  :wonder:

HOP N VAPE Rashomon, so pretty decent RDA, authentic too. So I probably need a dual coil. I'll wait till I get my new ones and fit a couple of those.

Ok so have these dual thingies.... some kind of - supposed to be alien claptons - but not, in my hop n vape... squonk pin, 160w dripbox. Yesterday all was well. The vapour was great, the taste was good. Today, not so much! Vapour is still great, but the taste is kind of blurghhhh, like I've burnt the wick, but I haven't 'onest g'vner!

So how often do you guys need to dry burn and rewick, cos I'm thinking if it needs to be done daily, I just might not bother!  :no2:

Been using between 60w and 70w, keep changing to see if it tastes any better, and it really doesn't. Ohms are 0.12.

Any idea's before I retire this dripbox back to the shelf, take the squonk pin out and just go back to 'proper dripping'?

Never had that problem CK  :no2:
The only times I've re wicked is if I've inadvertently had a dry hit and burnt the cotton.

Other than that it'll depend on how much use it's had.
I could go a week + easily without even thinking about it.

maybe it's the juice you're using ... Dunno  :scratch:

I've been vaping mine for a week, admittedly only in the evenings after work and it's still going strong. After me saying a couple of days ago that I hadn't had a dry burn, well I had a few in a row the day after (sods law), but as I said, it's still going strong.
Best bet is Zim, he'll know :smile:

I think I might just have to say 'squonking isn't for me' and go back to dripping.... to be honest I really don't want to have spend money on silky squonking bottles, and clever refilling kits anyhow!! lol, might be a blessing in disguise!  :yes:

Well yeah ok, that's an option. 
Except dripping is the same thing as squonking. 
With squonking you're just delivering the juice from a bottle contained within the mod instead of a bottle held over the rda's drip tip.
