    Default Question for some of the older Reonauts.

    Hey reonauts! I'm looking at you older ones, no disrespect whatsoever! I'm not an old reonaut, but over the past year I've had increasing issues with my hands. I get swelling in my fingers, and off and on pain to the point where it can be difficult to hold things, even like a fork. Of course I have to keep using my hands to eat and vape, but it can be very painful.
    I already use my thumb to sqounk and that seems to help. Do any of you have some tips when it comes to filling your juice bottles? Or long periods of pressing the vape button and holding your mod?

    HRH will take the door off to squonk since it allows her more access to the bottle. You could also use a button cover if you use a metal Reo.

    You are what you eat? I don't remember eating a sexy beast this morning!

    Miarose, I think you will really, really like the buttons on the Wood REOs. They're very ergonomic. I have no trouble with my hands, but I always squonk with my thumb.

    I use my middle finger to squonk, it seems to hurt less than using my thumb. I wish I would have gotten the button cover sooner. I do have pretty bad arthritis in my hands.

    You can also tilt the Reo on it's side, slide the door up halfway, put your thumb on the bottle, then tilt upright. you can now squonk a bit easier and when you remove your thumb the door drops into place and the magnets grab it. with practice I can now slide the door up with my thumb without tilting.

    The button cover makes a huge difference imo! I"ve always squonked with my thumb - don't know how I'd do it any other way
