    Got one more thought that may be a money saver but it’s predicated on what equipment he currently has, which leads the big question:

    What equipment does this guy currently got?

    I'll second the reservation on the Topside. It's a great squonker, love mine, but it's not cheap. I'd hardly regard it as a "give this a shot" mod unless you have deep pockets.

    It does have the best adapter for 18650s on the market too. I use it in other mods when I'm short a charged 21700 and it fits in all.

    Don't give him a squonker. It'll drive him nuts. Better give him an AIO with replaceable heads. It'll warm him to vaping. My recommendation is any of the Cascade mods.

    If he's already using a Goon and a Tsunami are you sure a single coil rda is the way to go? Those have lots of airflow, not like most single coil rdas. I'm trying to think of one that would match but I'm struggling, so someone help out here. The Citadel the Squeeze 2 comes with won't compete with the airflow and cloud of those attys.

    He understands that all he needs to do is raise the nic level.

    My apologies. When I said "beginner" in the thread title I meant someone new to just the idea of squonking. He's been vaping for a while though and has been dripping for a while too.

    @bombastinator and @HigherStateD just a courteous FYI Mooch does recommend that exact battery. So all is well in batteryland.

    Unless of course my reading and comprehension skills have slipped some...could be, but not yet. ;)

    Good luck squonk hunting. :D

    Yes, a rabbit hole I've thought about and I know me well enough to know I would go far!
    Trying to ignore the urge for now but also thanks for the suggestions (which I've noted).

    Edit: My apologies and my mistake. I am sorry it is I who got it wrong and more than willing to admit it!

    24mm width. Too narrow. I was thinking maybe a aromamizer plus. It’s got a 10ml tank and vapes like an RDA. It’s too wide though.

    The Pico Squeeze 2 is a good choice for an inexpensive introduction to squonking. The Coral 2 RDA is actually quite good too with a deep juice well, good flavor, and a single coil design. Plus the Squeeze 2 is inexpensive and built like a tank. It is quite heavy, at least it surprised me with the weight, but it is very durable as a result.

    With being able to use 18650 or 2x700 cells it fits the criteria you listed, so a good choice all around. If your going to get bigger cells for this device, I would recommend looking at the 21700s instead of the 20700 cells for the mah increase if he is going to be using this device at relatively moderate power levels of 45 watts or lower. If he is intending to use this mod at high level power then a single battery mod would not be the best choice. A good battery for a moderate wattage vaper is the Samsung 40T (21700) at 4000mah, but be sure to buy them from a quality vendor from Mooch's vendor list. Just too many fakes or re-wraps out there to take a chance.

    I think the battery I got is slightly different than the one mooch recommended, his didn't say molicel on the wrap. And has a different code on the second line. They do hit harder than my mxjo though. As for the topside, I can't speak to how it compares with other squonkers, but for 20$ more, I'd get it again, if I wasn't waiting on the carbon.

    The question on whether that's the battery Mooch tested isn't clear. It looks similar but the markings don't match. Also no battery in the 18, 20x series we use provide a 35A CDR. Even the one Mooch tested came in a 30A, pretty much the best you can get these days. Note that for use around 45W, a 30A cell isn't needed and you're sacrificing capacity for a higher CDR than you actually need.

    My apologies for earlier calling the Squeeze rda the citadel. It is the Coral 2 as @Jazzman accurately identified.

    You are correct.

    Please accept my humble apologies for my mistake.

    I admit it...my reading and comprehension skills have slipped! :confused: Must be the green juice.

    Peace :)

    So I ordered 2 Pico Squeeze 2 kits, one for for my friend and one for me along with the Samsung 40T's. I hope this helps my friend quit. I'm hoping but even if he won't quit at least I'm doing what I can to help him out. I've known this guy for a while and I don't do this for most people but he's my buddy. Watched each others ups and downs you know, for years and it makes me happy to do a close friend a favor like this.

    Better watch out or you'll end up ordering things in your sleep and then forgetting you ordered it and what it's for. Really, I know someone who did that :D

    I saw that thread and loved it! Next time surprise order something for me and I'll PayPal you!;)
    $100 o-ring sounds like a DOD purchase at our expense.

    But as long as I understand from your post, you built the RDA for him. I mean, it's fine if it's ok with you, but motivation lacking is bad policy. Unless elderly or disabled, the easiest route to success is to let each person learn on their own. I don't build things for my husband, he has learned and now builds himself.
