    My first squonk mod was the Wraith POS. It worked but it was really clunky. Anyway, I only had to squeeze the bottle a little to get liquid into the RDA.

    I just got a HCigar Aurora. I have to squeeze the bottle really hard to get liquid into the RDA. Is this normal?

    A lot Depends on what the Squonk Bottle is made out of.

    A Thick PE Bottle can need a Squeeze similar to pushing a Thumbtack into Wood. Whereas a Thin Silicone Bottle might only need a Feather Touch else it will Over-Squonk.

    Thanks for the response. I don't know what material the bottle is made of. It takes no effort to squeeze it...not like pushing a thumbtack. It's pretty soft. It's just that the liquid doesn't go up into the RDA unless i squeeze the heck out of it. Seems odd to me.

    If the Bottle doesn't seem to be the Problem, then what about the Tubing or the Feed Tube itself?

    Try Gently pushing a straightened out Paperclip down the Feed Hole in the 510 connector to check for obstructions.

    The Aurora definitely has a silicone bottle.I haven't touched mine in several months,so i can't remember for sure,but pull the bottle out,put your finger over the hole in the tube,and squeeze the bottle a tiny bit.I think that was the bottle i noticed a lot of air coming out of the cap.I think that may be why i haven't used that mod in such a long time.

    Is the bottle half full when you " squeeze the heck out of it"?

    I would cover the 510 on the Aurora with my thumb and squeeze the bottle and checks for leaks

    @Vapemesilly ... additional things to check.

    Also you can have difficulty if your wick is blocking the squonk hole in your RDA.

    That is a Good Suggestion.

    Because a Flat-Bottomed Tube can case All Kinds of Problems.

    Actually...yes, half full. It's only a 7 ml bottle but I don't vape a ton and I like to change flavors a lot so I haven't been filling it.

    I will check the cap and the bottom of the tube. Thanks.
