Any real world reviews of the capo regulated Squonker?

Got the kit on the way, I've watched many mixed reviews, a lot about it being underpowered, then I watched another review last night by someone who's not as well know as the big time reviewers, down to earth guy and he said pretty much don't believe them, it's not underpowered. Figured I'd give it a shot
Same here,i have read and heard many mixed reviews,so i figure the only way i'll know for sure is to get one and try it.I had 1 on pre order,but cancelled because the date kept getting pushed back,since it is out now,i'll be ordering one in a few days.
Underpowered is a good word for it - using mine at 25 watts - it's okay, but doesn't compare to my little mechs
The bottle door is janky on mine - it stays on but very loose and makes noise
Have not used the stock attie -
Only paid $41 for mine - would have felt ripped off if I paid a dime more but it did come with a battery, which is nice and the 18650 converter does work on it
Well I guess I'll find out, one man's trash is another man's treasure
I got one today, won it. I have never used a squonker before, but the way everyone raves about the flavor from them, I am disappointed. I built a .50 ohm dual coil, and to me I get much more flavor from my tanks. Any help would be appreciated. I have tried adjusting the wattage to different settings, but the flavor just isn't there when compared to other atty's I've used.
try building a lower ohm coil? The reviews I watched all said you basically need to build it low like you would a mech if you want a warm saturated vape. I only just got into mechs/squonkers and have been building between 0.25 and 0.3 and enjoying the vape but I want to try going lower now that I have some fresh vtc5a for my boxes.
What wattage do you vape the lower ohm coils at?
I don't have a capo squonk. All my squonks are mechs. On a dual or triple battery regulated mod with a tank I vape 0.15 in the 70 - 80 watt range.
I only watched a few reviews of this but they all said it is buck, not boost, so higher ohm builds won't vape well regardless of the wattage adjustments. IIRC one of the reviews said ijoy told hom to build 0.10 - 0.15 for best results. 0.15 draws 25 to 30 amps so obv make sure you have a good high amp battery.
Will do, thanks!!!!
I have not built the attie that is included with the Capo - but my personal rule of thumb is that all atties included with squonk mods tend to suck balls
Built a dual coil that came out to .20 ohms, better, but still not as much flavor as my tanks.
Don't get me wrong, I like it, but I like my other setups better.
I'll fool around with it over the weekend and decide whether to keep it or give it away.
It's not the mod, it's an atomizer issue.
Recommend a better atomizer please, less expensive the better (spent a lot on Black Friday)
I haven't bought a squonk atty in about a year, been using the best from the past. Marquis, Stumpy, NarDa, NoName, etc, etc.
What kind of vape you like?
Double coil, single, lots of air, DL, restricted, MTL, big deck, 16mm, 25mm....
Lots of great choices these days without having to break the bank
A Goon (clone) is a good (cheap) atty.
this, or a bonza, is all I can recommend for recently released squonk atty's that I actually own so far. The Drop get's great reviews, as do the pulse's, and either in 24mm can do single or dual coil builds.
Dual - DL - Lots of air - easy to build deck
I just popped on a Hotcig X Rig Mod RSQ 80w with a Drop RDA that are on the way. I'll report back how that worked for me, if anyone knows about that RSQ I'd appreciate it. Reviews were kinda thin so I took a flier on specs and looks.
Dale's suggestion of the Goon is excellent for those requirements - one of my longtime favorites for sure
The Dead Rabbit by Hellvape is getting a lot of praise from vapers whose opinions I trust - and also meets those requirements - plus is less money
The Druga by Augvape is also a great choice for not a lot of dough - really love this one
So I went against the reviews and picked up one of these, not bad really, running the coils that come with the kit in the pulse 24, just gotta build below .2 ohms...now I’ve gotta find a dual coil build around .15 so I can change out the coils eventually....any suggestions?
