    Not seeing a whole lot about the Squape reloaded on here, and moderators are welcome to edit the title if I'm not allowed to label my Squape thread as "official." I just want to get a good information database about it, since the initial thread is a "coming soon" thread, and I was hoping to get a more appropriate tribute to this illusive atomizer.

    So let's talk about it. What do people like? Dislike?

    It's really a clever design with the nonconductive build deck. I loved my genesis atomizers, and I always enjoyed mesh, and the build deck is a huge help for that. I personally still don't own one, but it's my mission to pick one up, and soon. The airflow control just looks incredible on this thing. Big huge 3.1mm draw and everything below that. Let's have a look at the specs from Stattqualm shall we?

    Rebuildable Tank Atomizer
     Diameter: 22 mm
     Height (without Squip Tip) : 59mm
     Weight (without Squip Tip): 79 g
     Connector thread: 510
     Airflowcontrol-Ring: SS - changeable (optional in brass and different colors)
     Adjustable centerpin stainless steel
     Volume: ~5 ml
     Material Tank: Stainless steel
     Material Base: Stainless steel
     Decks: Aluminium, ematal coated – non-conductive – convertible
     Chimney: Aluminium, ematal coated – non conductive
     Windows: Borosilicate glass, matt – cut - changeable
     Special SQuip Tip, spare screws, o-rings and hexagon wrench (to remove the chimney) are included

    22mm? Check.
    AFC? Check.
    5mls? Check.
    Glass tank? Check.
    Adjustable 510? Check.

    She's got almost everything. All the videos on youtube including those done by Pbusardo, Todd and RipTrippers indicate that this thing practically builds itself. Very, very simply. Wicking doesn't look like a big chore either. The apparent key is: No wick tails.

    Lets take a look at some cons real quick.

    It's a heavy sucker. This thing has to weight something like half the weight, or more of a Provari. Height is certainly a con too. While it does have a nano tank available, the nano tank is a solid steel tank with no windows. It's also very expensive. Expect to pay about 180 bucks for one of these bad boys, and that's if you can get your hands on one. The clones have had somewhat less than stellar feedback from what I understand, namely being that the clones non-conductive coating doesn't stay on very well or very long.

    So lets talk about it! Lets hear from some of the lucky owners and have them share their experience and DEFINITELY picture heavy. It's a beaut, and I personally can't wait to get ahold of one...

    GO!

    Received my second-hand Squape Reloaded today and holy heck, does it ooze quality, compared to the clones I already own (one of which is going back to SlowTech if they'll take it).
    Currently soaking in vodka and will make a build later, just so thrilled, since it really seems to be worth the pricetag, based on build quality alone.
    Vape is great on the functional clone, so if it's as good or even better than that on the original, I won't be leaving the apartment for a while :D

    Haha yeah Roxy, you and I both have wanted ads for one. Good luck to you! Next batch on the Stattqualm website is supposedly November 14th! If my Erlkonigin doesn't find a home swap for a Sqr before the next batch releases, I'll do everything in my power to pick one up. How do people compare flavor and vapor to things like the Erlkonigin and the Kayfun? I've heard about a muted flavor compared to the Erlkonigin, largely due in part (in my opinion) to the longer chimney. I bet the shorter tank would have better flavor than the full size

    Ok, I have clones of the SqR, Erlk and Kayfun, so let's bear that in mind for my answers :). I did use an authentic Kayfun of a friend's for a month as my first rba.

    When my SqR clone is vaping perfectly, the flavor and vapor are both excellent. Better than a Kayfun on both. Now that I know how good it can be, I want an authentic.

    I get better flavor, but less vapor from the Erlk over the Kayfun. Erlk has a very different flavor. Clean, pure describes it well. My clone is vaping quite nicely though, which is why I'm not pulling the trigger yet for the authentic. I can afford one authentic right now and the SqR clones have too many issues. So my choice on one authentic must be the SqR.

    I've owned the Kayfun Lite Plus v2 and the ErlPrinz, both authentics, and I've gotten rid of both, as I couldn't get them to work properly. Either they wouldn't hit right, or they would leak. I know, user error, but when 20 attempts all fail, it's not a tank for me.
    Got a Coppervape clone of Squape Reloaded and it's working really, really well and build quality is pretty much perfect as well.
    The SlowTech clone I already described, no need to waste anymore time and space on that ;)

    Just got done building my authentic, and holy sweet mother of Jebus, this thing vapes b-e-autifully!
    "Shut up Bulldogge, we don't care, we just want pics!" - alright, alright, sorry, here they are:

    [​IMG]
    Just a tad offset, but hey, nobody's perfect.

    [​IMG]
    I like my coils only just dipping into the "well".

    [​IMG]
    Thar she glows!

    [​IMG]
    Cotton fitted. Just exceeds the edges of the deck and just enough for a slight bit of resistance when pulling it through the coil. I make sure to tuck the cotton down into the horizontal channels. Not tight, but just to make sure that liquid doesn't run underneath the wick.

    [​IMG]
    Soaked and ready to go.

    [​IMG]
    Just a smidge of cotton in the vertical channels.

    [​IMG]
    Vaaaaape on the water!

    [​IMG]
    Just about 1.5 ohms, vape is stellar and hey, looks gorgeous on the P3 too ;)

    Beautiful! Dang it's big though! How much was the good clone?

    Also, do you typically run your Squape at 10 watts, or in your experience, has it handled 20 watts to make full use of the Provari's abilities?

    Lastly, if anyone has any awareness on a precise release date for the next batch, please let us know here! We're all hoping this next batch is gonna be a big one =]

    That's the weird part: The good and the hopeless clone, are supposedly both by Coppervape. The good one is from a Danish shop and that one has a retail price of about $80. I paid about 55 though, as it was second-hand.

    And yeah, she's a fine, tall lady ;)

    I very rarely exceed 10 watts, as I like most of my liquids in that area and since I'm pretty much exclusively on 18350 batteries, it's also about finding a nice balance between power, flavor and battery life :)
    I can't imagine it being problem going higher though.

    According to squape.ch, the next batch is due on November 14.

    Yep that's what I've seen, I was just wondering if anyone had any additional insight on the EXACT time so I can attempt to break my refresh button

    This is a situation where the clones are actually helping the sales of the original. People are trying the clones, getting an awesome vape before the myriad of issues rear their head and they try and track down an original.

    Hopefully it will make stattqualm ramp up production as well.

    I'm just hoping to snag a wide deck in the next batch. The standard deck is really pissing me off.

    I personally given up hope on getting a Squape Reloaded anytime soon. I'll probably nab one sometime mid 2015 when and if the demand dies down. I'm banking on the new Kayfun if it ever releases.

    What's pissing you off about the S deck, if I may ask?
    Just curious, since it's working great for me :)

    I continually get dry hits and have to do primer puffs every few hits. I have gotten some feedback in another thread and have tried everything from less wick to more. Sorter and longer. Even different cool sizes. And it's always the same, either dryhits or flooding. Been trying to figure it out for a couple months steady. I've also checked my orings

    Hmm, have you tried a different coil height?
    When I got the first clone, I saw people setting their coils in the "well", copied them and got flooding constantly.
    Then I started setting the coil as in the pictures in my previous thread and it's been vape heaven ever since :)
    Worth a try at least, if you haven't already been there...

    The last time I rewicked I raised my coil up some. Not quite as high as yours in the photos above. I'll try higher. What about the tails of the coil? In your pics they are underneath the coil. I have always seen/done them over the top of the coil.

    Yeah try raising it some more, can't get any worse, right? ;)

    If I understand you correctly, my wick tails are pretty much both above and below the coil.
    Over, mostly just because the cotton puffs up like that, and under, in the horizontal channels, to prevent liquid from running underneath the wick and flood everything.
    I cut the wick so that it exceeds the deck by maybe 0.5 mm or something like that, just a tiny little bit, that way the cotton pretty much automatically makes it way down the vertical channels, allowing great wicking, at least on my setup :)

    Hope that makes sense?

    I'm hoping to get lucky and finding one second hand lol. I've basically come to terms with there's no chance I'll ever get one through retail, SQ simply doesn't make nearly enough of them and there's too much demand. And by the time SQ catches up with production, there will be something new and better on the market. I'm also hoping the new Kayfun has an improved design to allow more juice to flow to the wick. Something like the Erlk with a Kayfun spin on it would be terrific. Or something entirely new and innovative like the original Kayfun design.

    Not the wick tails. I mean the coil tails.
