Squonk Question
OK - All you squonkers out there - you are all experienced vapers and I need some advice. I have 4 squonkers and have never had a problem with any until I got the Hadaly RDA. Everytime I squeeze the squonk bottle I get juice leeking out the air vents. This is most certainly poor wicking on my part but try as I might I cannot correct this - all advice will be more than welcome. I really thought I was done with this kind of problem[Image: sad.gif].

RE: Squonk Question
It can only be that for some reason more juice is getting into it than the others.

Anything different with the bottle or dip tube?

If I remember rightly, the Hadaly is less tolerant of oversquonking than others as the air holes are very low down and close to the deck.

The only thing I can suggest is to squonk with less pressure.

RE: Squonk Question
And not knowing squonking but knowing RDA's, perhaps you could push the build below the air holes? Perhaps the juice is flowing over the cotton and out the air holes?

RE: Squonk Question
Thanks Don - I have tried to pack more wicking under the coil to soak up any excess juice but it still happens - I will try being a bit more careful with my squeezing[Image: smile.gif].

RE: Squonk Question
I don't think packing in more cotton will solve your problem.

Hi TW - as Don says the air holes are very low on the Hadaly - it is a great RDA for dripping but I am not so sure if it is going to be for squonking - thanks for the quick response guys[Image: smile.gif].

RE: Squonk Question
Well, some work and some don't. My thoughts are if you pack in more cotton, you're only giving yourself less margin for error.

That is a perspective I never thought about - I will try the careful squeeze and see how it goes. It would be a great pity if this issue cannot really be sorted - it is a great atty.

RE: Squonk Question
If the airflow holes are that low, you already may have too much cotton in there.

RE: Squonk Question
I do use a lot less cotton than I used to.

Personally I seem to get the best squonk results with only just enough cotton to reach the deck and only enough to fill the coil. If it wasn't for my using SS wire and much preferring thick wire to thin I'd be making 2mm coils instead of 3.
