    A new entry to the Topside squonker family: the Topside Lite. Single battery (I assume 21700) with the ability to convert from a squonker to a conventional mod by swapping out the bottle section, much like the Aegis squonker. Unlike the Aegis, the swapping doesn't appear to require tools.

    The menu appears to be the same as the current Topsides so I imagine it has the same board.

    The pics below are from TVC's (Brian Herb) FB page. Not a huge fan of the look. Granted, these are not great photos, but it looks very plasticy and not nearly as nice as the original single battery Topside.

    Scratching my head over this one. The Topside's whole appeal is the unique top fill setup for the juice. If you remove the squonking section, all you've got left there is a very ordinary mod.

    First, it does look plasticky, which isn't so terrible if it makes the unit much lighter. The shape is also more "traditional" also a plus in making it good for carrying around for out and about (for me a Topside single still isn't a pocket carry). The change to a plain mod is not an asset or liability, just a bit concerning as to whether it compromises the build issue of squonking juice trough 2 90 degree angles. Finally, it has to be be compatible with standard Topside bottle sleds or it's a non-starter to me.

    It kind of looks like the battery is accessed through that replaceable door (speculation obviously, I don't see hinge pins at the bottom like the originals have), and if that is the case then I hope that squonk connection between the door and the mod is super solid. If not it could be an issue.

    Vaping with Vic did a first look at the Topside Lite. The video is indexed to the start of when he goes over it at about 1 hour into the video. It's not a review but it does show (sort of) replacing the squonk side with the non-squonk side even though Vic was unable to figure out how to get it done and much of what he was trying is not in-frame.

    I hope the bottle to mod connection is better than the Geekvape squonker.
    After using it a week I'm getting some leaking at the connection.

    The SQ Topside shown before the topside lite in that video looks much more interesting IMO. The topside lite's door to mod connection looks a little weak to me.

    Is that the Aegis squonk? I was leery of it because of that very connection. This is the first I'm hearing of it actually being an issue.

    Yes, I haven't heard of anyone else having a problem.
    Seems to be an o-ring issue (not big enough). Of course they don't give any spares.
    I ordered a couple different sizes to try.
    Did do the dental floss trick, which is working so far.
    Might be I just got a undersized ring.
    What's good is you can take it apart and just run it under the faucet to clean.

    The Topside Lite should be called the Topside Cheap Moneygrab

    looks cheap on picture for sure, but i could see myself using one of these if they're any good.
    I tend to switch between squonking and dripping in summer/winter and i liked the dual. I would buy the aegis squonk but single 18650 aint enough for me.

    Just a service announcement. Anyone who is thinking you want one of these, Fastteck has the mod only for $42.32 when you use code MAP.

    That was enough for me to put one in the cart :w00t:
