With a squonk mod, you won’t need to drip as the juice is built into the design of the device. Squonk mods are a bottom feeder, which means that the vape juice sits inside the device, next to the battery, and directly fuels the atomiser with liquid, eliminating the need to drip.
How do you use a squonk?
Each mod has a squonk hole which you squeeze in order to drip juice onto the wick, any excess flows straight back into the bottle, so little or even no wastage!
What is the best RDA for squonking?
The best RDA for squonking is generally the one you have :) But in truth there are some fantastic brands out there, with innovations such as heat reduction or more airflow. Sometimes it could be that you want an easier build deck to screw the fiddly coil in.
Some squonk tank brands to look out for include:
- Twisted Messes
- Vandy Vape

What's better RDA or Tanks?
If it's flavour and clouds you are after, then a Squonk RDA is the only way forward. But it's worth noting, you can't drop a conventional vape tank onto a squonking mod and expect it to work safely. They will work, but it's not what they are for.
If you want to read more on vape battery safety, we have a piece on that:
Does RDA use more juice?
It really comes down to the amount of power running through the squonk's rda, but as most operate them at higher wattage and have a large airflow intake, the hits are often longer and vaporise more fluid with each vape.
What coils do RDAs use?
RDAs use a range of either handmade or pre-made coils. Back in the early days of vaping you'd carry a tool belt around with you and have to make them yourself. While it was fiddly at first and then a bit of fun, it's a bit long winded and machines make them much faster.
The little pieces of vital metal are what connects the heating circuit and heats up the liquid in the cotton poked through. They come in Nichrome, Kanthal or Stainless Steel.
Can you get prebuilt coils?
Yes thankfully. As I mentioned above, we use to have to carry a drill around and reams of wire. Now you can just buy prebuilt coils online. This makes getting your hands on advanced vaping supplies for squonking, that bit easier.
How long do rebuildable coils last?
Generally, a Squonk rebuildable coil will last months, it's the cotton that needs refreshing. In fact, that's actually true for any vaping atomiser. With your conventional coil on a Smok tank, for example, you can't get to the coil to clean it, but with a squonk mod, you can. You simple rip out the cotton, and stick a fresh one in.
Squonk coils last ages!
