    Finally joined the squonking ranks with the arrival of my pulse mod. So far really liking it with the dead rabbit.

    Yes obviously I’ve nothing to compare but it is a soft silicone. Works well.

    Yes it is the soft silicon bottle and it's a big one that holds 9 ml.

    I just pulled mine out of my mail box. It's well made and has a make/break contact inside so you can pocket/purse the mod and not worry about auto-firing. The doors are held on magnet to magnet around the edges and not to the battery. The 510 is spring loaded so your atty will sit flush to the body. A 24 mm atty sits nicely on it with no overhang. It could take a 25 mm if your OCD doesn't freak out hanging over the body edge rounding.

    I put a Pulse 24 atty on it built with a pair of 2x28/38 SS316L fused Claptons in it at 0.25 Ohms. I filled up the bottle with some DIY Moose Pie and it squonks nicely. It vapes well and I'm not getting any heat transfer on the button.

    Well worth the $40 and I will probably buy some more.

    Yeah there are replacements available and with colors. Any vendor who carries the mod should be getting the bottles. I have a couple on backorder from thecloudyvapor.com. I think Vandy Vape didn't anticipate how popular this mod was going to be and short shipped to the vendors.

    What @gopher_byrd said ^^ mine didn’t ship yet from bradsvapor.com :( I didn’t preorder but his site said in stock when I ordered Monday. Vandy Vape didn’t ship the entire order 90% according to Brad. I guess I didn’t make the cut. Although he supposedly bought from other sources so he would be able to ship out all remaining orders yesterday & today. He also stated Vandy Vapes has shipped his remaining goodies, will receive next week. He has the extra doors & Squonk bottles in all colors coming in too.

    I may need to lop a little bit off of the feed tube (don yet know the proper term) as it's very soft and a bitch to get it back in the mod without juice all over.

    Tubing is right :)

    You definitely don't want more tubing than is needed to span from the stem coming out of the 510 to the bottom of the bottle

    Might take awhile to get your personal technique down to refill

    Also, they do make refill bottles so you can fill yours from the top through the 510 where the attie goes so you only have to remove the squonk bottle if you want to clean it

    3F had a bunch of 8mL silicone on the new page when I went there for the Aleader giveaway.

    All the 8mL silicone I've tried have been too squishy so far but these look different, maybe they'll be firmer like the SJMY ones.

    That's what I used to fill mine. Easy peasy and no mess.

    I would need at least 30 refill bottles to hold all my different recipes.
    With the Pulse it's easier to get the bottle on, with the battery removed.

    Yes I'm discovering this. I do wish that the feed tube was made of stiffer tubing.

    Also, at least on mine, the battery is a bitch to get in with the 18650 adapter. May need to get a few 20700's and see if they are any better.

    From what I have heard, they are not any easier.

    But what does help is removing both panels and instead of inserting one end at a time, you can put fingers through the hole in the back to guide the battery in and just slide the whole thing in at once.

    Just got mine today. It's very light. Bottle is super soft which makes it nice to squonk but messy to out in as others have said. The little switch didn't connect properly out of the box but with a little bending with pliers i got it to connect properly. My battery isn't that hard to get in with the adaptor.
    Not a huge fan of the button myself.

    I like it so far. Gonna have to experiment with what resistance i want to go with as this is my first mech in awhile.



    Now to see how battery life is gonna be.

    Added the pulse 22 to my collection too as I love the 24 I have.
