I have been very reluctant to try Squonking so far because of my love hate relationship with drippers. I love the flavor but hate the wide open airflow. Even my velocity clone with a single coil build and the air flow closed down to the minimum amount possible would make my chest hurt and breathing difficult after a very short period of using it.
I have been reading this thread with interest but until recently I did not act on trying to figure out a way to do this. So a week or so ago I sent @Rob62 a PM asking for some help. He recommended the Chalice 3 clone to me and gave a link to a place that had them in stock. I posted this in the vape mail thread but I went a little further with the pics to share with you all in this thread.
So here we go down yet another rabbit hole in my vaping journey.
This one is so you can get a size comparison.
So here was my thoughts on how to best deal with finding out if I could vape this thing for extended periods of time without the ill effects that I have experienced with drippers in the past. The first step was to plug up the BF pin so I could use it as a dripper because I do not have a Squonk mod yet.
I used a common round toothpick and lightly taped it down in the center of the BF pin then cut it off flush.
The second thing I had to do was get the internal air hole lined up to hit directly on the coil. Seems the quality control of the Chinese maker was lacking the day mine was made. Here is a very short video showing you how to do this if you end up with one like mine.
I use Temp Control mods only so next was figuring out a build that would work. I went with what I normally use in all of my tanks, a 5 or 6 wrap SS326L 3mm ID spaced coil. It took me a few tries and watching a couple YouTube videos but here is what I started with.
Now wicked up and firing with juice for the first time.
I have been using this for a couple of days now and pretty much have not picked up one of my tanks since I got this going. It is a real pain to use as a dripper, 4 good puffs and 2 drops of liquid vape and repeat. Even given that I am constantly dripping 2 drops of juice at a time I just can not stop using this little gem.
Here it is on top of my VT133
Needless to say my next purchase is going to be a Squonk mod for sure. I am loving the vape quality and the flavor off of this little atty. It is definitely a MTL device but you can do a very restricted DL by allowing a little air flow in past your lips and the drip tip.
Here is a screen shot of the mod I am considering right now. It is the drip box 160 with a WUD skin already applied.
