I'm very excited for this mod but also let down
It has the same issues as the capo squonker, where it's just kind of overpowered....now matter what watts I set it to, it's still too high....though with the 216 I can change the power setting to soft and that has seemed to help a lot...
there's no keylock per say on this mod, now it does go into sleep mode and while in sleep mode you can not press the + and - keys, to wake it up, press the fire button...
it's simply an on and off device, with very limited menu options
power mode with normal, hard or soft options
tc mode with ni, ti, ss, tcr
reset puff counter
and that's it for the menu, no brightness control, no key lock controls, nada....
pressing the + and - keys together just tells you what your coil ohm is, which is already displayed on the screen
pressing the + or - keys and the fire button together does nothing...
Is it worth it? meh....for $45 for a dual squonker, it's worth it...but are there better dual squonkers out there, yes...
for me well it's a dual squonker and orange
but it's funky...I don't know what they did with this and the capo squonker but they just aren't right...it's nice that they instant fire and all but they over shot the power on it, so it's always warmer than what the watts are set at...now with the 216 there is the option to set the power to soft mode and that has helped out a lot and made it a more enjoyable vape
the bottles that come with it, well they suck....very stiff and firm and, I don't have big hands....so that's an issue...when trying to squonk (which is difficult as the bottles are very firm) I'm also pressing the + and - keys.....um....hello ijoy, design flaw much....
and since there's no way to lock the keys, there's no real way around that...
yeah that's gonna be a real big issue!
aside from that and no real menu options...and the funkiness that they did to the board to make it instant fire....those are really going to be my own downsides, but those are some pretty big downsides!!!!
it feels good in the hand, nice big clicky fire button, fairly nice sized menu screen (could be a bit bigger would have been nicer, and a brightness control would have really been nice)
the kit does come with a (janky wanna be) rda...it's not an rda, you can not rebuild it...you can rewick it, but there's no way to put new coils on it....
some kits do come with 2x 20700 batteries, which is nice....apparently the kit I got the batteries are dead....we shall see if they actually work after being charged.
and well, that's really all I can say about this mod
+ it's a dual 20700 squonk mod
+ it's in orange
+ it was only $45 from Wet Vapes
+ it comes with batteries
+ it comes with adapter for 18650s
~ it comes with a dripper (not really a + or -)
~ no real menu options aside from basic (this could be a good thing or a bad thing...simple to use but no customizing it)
- the bottles are too firm
- no key lock
- no brightness control
- the way it is designed, when squonking you're pressing the + and - keys
so well there ya have it....
and if you want to watch a 40 minute video of me rambling
This comes courtesy of Usonicig
I really wanted to be impressed by this....unfortunately, we're not there yet...for all of the design thoughts put into it, it's on point; Small, lightweight, button activated, refillable pod, comfortable mouthpiece, not too tight of a draw but not airy enough for a DL hit, flavor is perfect...But the power is just not there. It takes 20+ seconds to "warm up" and even then the vape production just isn't there. After the video I allowed it to charge fully and try again, also after reading the instructions it does note to allow it to sit for 10 minutes after first filling to allow full saturation.... but sadly the results were the same, it does "warm up" a tad faster but still lacking in power to produce a satisfying draw. It's an interesting idea, a great design but just lacking in power. Hopefully this will be improved upon in the near future. If they could work out the power source kinks I could see this being an all day vaping device for me, but until that time unfortunately it's just a novelty for the collector.
After several hours of playing with it, it still takes too long to ramp up and is now flooding with mouthfuls of juice
it was suggested that it might work better with a 50/50 ratio, but even still that isn't going to help the ramp up time and the "umph" behind it....however with a higher mg nic salt this could suffice for a stealth vape but it is nowhere near going to be a satisfying vape
Hopefully with their next release it might meet this goal... as I said everything else about this device is on point and I could see it being an all day vape if it 1. didn't take so long to ramp up and 2. had more power behind it to get a satisfying draw off of it.
I'm mainly an rda kind of gal but the flavor off of this is enough for me to switch to a pod system, if they can get it improved power-wise.
Asmodus Spruzza 80w regulated squonk mod (kit)
"The Spruzza is powered by the GX-80-HUT chipset , which supports wattage (power) mode, a full temperature control suite, TFR, TCR, and a Curve mode"
This is a regulated TC squonker and has touch screen and stabwood doors
It's a nice looking mod and surprisingly not that heavy, though it is bulky even though it is only a single 18650 battery mod (due to the squonk box)
The mod itself seems nice however the atty is crap
For the normal retail price point I would be pissed
But at $35 for the black friday sales it's an ok kit
they have raised the price since my purchase and also have other colors available...still at $49.95 for a regulated squonk mod is a great price
again for the normal retail price point I'd think a better atty would be in order as well as some cotton in the kit for the coils and even preinstalled coils....a drip tip adapter would be nice but I could understand that not being in there but no cotton for the coils??
It also does not come with a cord for firmware upgrade...odd
