Price Build quality ABS construction Supports 18650, 20700 an 21700 batteries Vape while charging function Semi regulated Spring loaded 510 Silicone bottle Frosted door panel Plug in USB charging port and cable Voltage, resistance, temperature range 18650 battery adapter
I'm really impressed with this semi mechanical/regulated squonk mod made out of ABS material. The overall build quality and finish is very good. It features chip protection, overheating protection and can support builds as low as 0.05ohm. Voltage range is 3.2V-4.2V with a maximum power output of 120W and 60A. It has led indicators when in use and while charging plus a vape while charging feature. You can use 18650, 20700 and 21700 batteries and an 18650 battery adapter is included. The silicone bottle is very good quality. The 510 pin is spring loaded, the fire button throw is short and instant and there is no sign of arcing. The frosted front and back door panels look great, they use 4 small but strong magnets in each corner and fit perfectly with no sign of panel movement. The contact plates appear to be plated copper, provide good conductivity and do not tear your battery wraps. Attys up to 24mm fit with no overhang and is comfortable in the hand. I cannot find any cons with this squonk mod and at this price it is a bargain. Hopefully they will offer the different coloured frosted door panels and other colours as a separate purchase.

Adjustable 510 pin Flavour and vapor production Easy to build
CONS
Non spring loaded post clamps No mesh strips included No mesh bending tool included Drip tip is loose fitting
This clone has one very important feature that the other clone and the authentic don't have, an adjustable 510 pin. Both the other clone and the authentic have a non adjustable 510 pin which will wobble and cause fluctuation in coil/mesh resistance and more than likely a short over time. Unfortunately the post clamps are not spring loaded, mesh strips and a mesh bending tool are not included. The drip tip is loose fitting so you need to either remove the o-ring in the top cap and replace it with a thicker one or find an 810 drip tip with a slightly wider diameter connection. Using a mesh strip supplied with the authentic the vape quality is on par. Wicking is much easier than on the Profile Unity rta and Profile rda. Normal single coil is possible but it doesn't produce better flavour or a denser vapor than mesh. Airflow is very open and smooth. Tank capacity is 3ml using the straight glass and 4.5ml using the bubble glass.

Flavour Quality machining and finish
CONS
Proprietary drip tip
What an absolute gem of a rda. This little talked about or reviewed single coil 22mm rda produces flavour which very few other flavour rdas can match. This stainless steel version has an adjustable inner air flow cap and a removable proprietary drip tip. The draw from the single air flow hole is an open dl type but it can be dialed down to suit your style and almost mtl vaping if you use the one piece PC cap/drip tip from the non stainless steel versions. The base has knurling which aids in removing the rda from your mod. The one piece insulator/air flow post looks unusual and I have not been able to confirm what it's made of but it works flawlessly and it has not melted or degraded when running it up to 75W. One post is intentionally positioned taller than the other post with openings for the coil also higher in order to make it easier to install your coil where the coil legs are not pre bent or parallel although the slits for your coil are a bit small, so trying to fit thick exotic wire coils is impossible without filing the slits to make them taller. A 4mm deep juice well is sufficient for the size of the rda and in squonk mode it's perfect. This rda really shines above most other rdas in the flavour department, for all types of e-liquid flavours and VG/PG ratios. For me it beats the Citadel, the Haku Venna, the Flave and other highly regarded flavour rdas. Pick one up and experience the flavour it produces for yourself.

When compared with current mechanical mods this 22mm SMPL style 18650 hybrid mechanical mod is very simple. It features stainless steel construction with a spring loaded brass firing switch, thin black coated finish and the threads are slightly crunchy.

The flavour on this clone is just as good as the authentic in mtl configuration using one of the four airflow inserts/plugs/discs provided. Overall look is very minimal, almost no threading and a sleek tank design. Airflow is very quiet, juice flow control works well, two piece proprietary drip tip is removable so you can use your own 510 drip tips, easy to build deck, multi adjustable airflow control. The biggest con for this clone is that there is no removable chamber reducer for a restricted direct lung draw. Other cons include the top cap is a little loose and far too easy to spin when the o-rings are wet, the base is very tight making it harder to separate from the chimney and you can hear metal scraping against the chimney as you pull it out. The clone is completely logoless. Tank capacity is only 2ml with no bubble tank or extension kit included. The glass tank measures 22mm od, 15.5mm high, 19mm id, 1.5mm thick. Airflow insert plugs are not labeled. I recommend buying the more expensive Ulton clone which is a 1:1 version of the authentic and it includes the removable chamber reducer, better fit and finish. Seek out the extension glass tank kit to increase capacity to 3.4ml.
