Hi All, Anthony Vapes back here with my review of the single 18650 sqounk mod VTinbox from Hcigar. Disclaimer: This product was sent from elementvape.com for this review. Introduction: The VTinbox is a single battery DNA75 sqounk mod from Hcigar. If you are not aware of what sqounking is, it’s using an RDA with a sqounk pin (which is a 510 pin with a hole in it) and the mod houses a bottle you fill with juice and you squeeze the bottle to make juice go into the RDA and wet the wick. Essentially it turns an RDA into a tank where you don’t have to drip but can squeeze a bottle instead to refill making it much more convenient. It was named “sqounk” due to the sound the bottle makes when squeezed for some reason. At least that’s the version i heard lol. It features replaceable side panels that can be purchased separately. The frame comes in 5 colors SS, red, black, gold, and rainbow each with matching replaceable panels. I have the SS one with the eagle panels.

It’s small and boxy but with rounded edges. The side panels have nice artwork and appear to be plastic with a glossy coating on them. The sqounk bottle has a nice 8ml capacity. It’s just an ok bottle. Not the worst but not the greatest. The tube is attached to the mod and is a really big one and the bottle has no cap or tube. It goes over what is attached to the mod. The spare bottle with a cap is a nice touch to carry a 2nd flavor on you. Finding replacement bottles is cheap and easy but they are all the same, i couldn’t find a different style or silicon bottle personally so it’s worth noting. Watt Mode Performance Let’s get into some data. Resistances for this mod’s testing were done at .1, .14, .2 and .53 for the high resistance test. The mod read resistance accurate. The wattage testing points were max watts (75), 50, 25 and 10. At .11 ohms the mod maxed out at 75 watts and 27 amps. During the tests it was very accurate, hitting 1 low at 50 and 10, but on the dot at 75 and 25. At the .14 test it maxed out at 76 watts. Outside of the max it was 3 high at 50, and 1 high at 25 and 10. At the .2 test it maxed out at 76 watts. It hit on the dot at the 50 setting, 1 low at the 25 setting and 1 high at the 10 setting. For the high resistance test of .53 it maxed out at 83 watts and 6.627 volts. At 50 it was 4 high, at 25 it was 2 high, and at 10 it was 1 high. My max wattage overall was 83 so it exceeds the 75 watts promised. The max amps (27) i got from my testing was close to the 30 promised but i was at the watt limit. Had i gone with a lower resistance coil the 30 is likely to happen. The 6+ volt output shows the chip has a boost circuit which is common in single battery mods. The mod never got hot in my testing or even warm. It did great at not overheating even when the chip was pushed to it’s limits and ran very cool. The output is smooth and consistent. Overall it performs excellent in power mode. Temperature Control Using SS316 wire with the default SS316 profile. I tested 5 builds ranging from single round spaced single and dual coils, to fancy single coils and 1 smaller Fancy dual coil build. With that said, there really isn’t much to say about this that people don’t know already. It’s a DNA chip so it’s one of the top 3 chips for using temp control. It was smooth and consistent with all builds and feels pretty accurate temperature wise and does a great job preventing dry hits. It’s everything you want in temp control. Other Usage Notes and sqounking No disassembly on this mod either, however The 510 pin on the mod seems really good. No issues using any atomizer. I only used 1 sqounk RDA (pulse 22) due to the 75 watt limit but i did test other atomizers on it as well with no issues. The sqounk/battery side plate has some wobble to it. The magnets in it use the battery to help secure it. The other plate has no wobble. The magnets are a little weak, i would have liked better magnets personally or i should say stronger ones. The sqounk bottle is just ok. It’s better then some like the drone but not as nice as the silicon one’s i have. It works well so can’t complain too much but it’s a little on the hard side. The spare bottle with cap was a nice touch as well. The battery tray is nice and easy to get the battery in and out (has a hole from the other side to poke it out, no ribbon) and the bottle comes in and out easy. Due to the tube being attached to the mod, you can get a little leaking when removing the bottle as juice left in the tube and on the tube will dribble out a bit but it’s easy to wipe off. It still has the basic drawbacks of the DNA75 chip such as small screen compared to other mods of late, not so easy to use menu system, the need for escribe to program chip (aka lack of on mod adjustments) and the default profiles from the factory aren’t very good. 5 Ni200 profiles, 1 SS316, 1 power, and 1 Ti. Pros: Build Quality Watt Mode Performance Temp Mode Performance Good quality 510 pin Looks and style Interchangeable plates Spare sqounk bottle with cap Battery Trey color options Cons: Battery Door Wobbles Default Profiles Need PC to program Bottle style makes it hard to find different options Conclusion So with all that said, do I recommend this mod or not? I don’t like to do hard yes or no. As a regulated single 18650 sqounk mod i’m gonna lean pretty heavy towards the yes. Not many options out there although a few new ones are hitting the market soon, neither company has a stellar record. Not to mention the top tier temp control performance if that’s your thing. Even as a power mode sqounker the performance is great and again, not many other options out there so yeah if you want a regulated sqounker it’s one of the bets on the market. It’s a really well built mod, it looks cool and performs well and accurately rated. Also evolv warranty service is one of the best in the business with a 1 year warranty and they actually respond. I’ll also be adding this mod to my list. This is Anthony Vapes just keeping it honest, hopefully you all can say the same and i’ll catch you on my next review.
