Well Squonk My Badonkadonk

I am not a class act reviewer at any cost, certainly not in
any category near our own top-shelf @Steampugs
I have been involved in all things [vaping] for some time,
including commercially, and am still heavily invested in
hardware and it’s red-headed step-child(s).
Not too many moons ago, my dear friend @Rob62 and I
seemed to be very much the minority with any squonk
experience and knowledge in the USA in the circles we ran in,
and even in other areas of vaping. He and I had daily phone
conferences that lasted several hours, and we also created some
very nice juice recipes in real time…1000 miles apart from each other.
This post/thread will be in parts, as I get time to say what I plan to, as
I have other engagements on my honey-do list (long ass list), so be well
fore-warned that more jibberish will follow…it is YOUR FAULT if you
continue to read or follow., and decide you wish to hate on me…[asphalt]

No one can teach anyone these days, so it seems, because most have
peer pressure from friends, or have info-overload from research on the
w.w.w. [is that still legal to say?]. As usual, most comments are made about
hardware from folks that don’t own nor have ever used the product.
[same foolishness like 327 vs 32H&R]

Basics are simple, you can use any squonk mod with non-squonk atty’s
but not vise-versa. If you find a nice mod on sale, but it is a squonker,
some may pass because they don’t squonk.
Simple retro proverbs: Better to have it and not need it…blah blah

Hey, but I only MTL…ya, so what does that squonk out to mean?
Put a Kayfun on a Asmodus Spruzza , vape two tanks, and call me in the a.m.
How about a Chalice III or any of your fave MTL atty’s.

How many atomizers are there now ???
Can anyone even own/vape them all ???
Or…who cares, eh ??? [Rip Tripper sold half of his collection,
and built a new fabulous log home…]
I do own a few, from vintage to modern, and I have some tried and true
mileage reports, which always vary from person to person, depending
on how/what build one uses, including wicking habits.
I have had folks in the shop, sit next to me, and duplicate what I have,
all same stuff, and end up with different results, albeit usually minor.

Scarface said “let me introduce you to my leetle friend…”
Allow me to introduce you to the best versatile atty I have used yet,
covering all bases…build, flavor, etc. …the Nefarius.
You may prefer single coil, this is not. It may seem challenging to build,
but it isn’t, and when you hit it, single battery…18650-20650-20700-21700
dual batteries 18650 blah blah blah…then you will see the superiority
it delivers and the flavor it exudes. I believe it is beyond only my opinion.
Do I still use other atty’s …??? …hell yes…I mean, damn right I do…daily.

I have to get to work now, kitchen duty, to cook for the Queen, while she
reads her Kindle, God forbid I have no meal ready when she finishes a
chapter, or at least have some homemade hummus and celery sticks
for a [meanwhile] snack ready and delivered to her throne, eh?

More later, as I am allowed time to do so. You have been warned, previously,
and now again, that this jibberish is waxing…no hate mail from the peanut section, eh?

My uncle used to love me but she died
Chicken ain’t chicken ‘til it’s lickin’ good fried

They oughta take a rope and hang me
High from the highest tree
Woman don’t you weep for me

Chug-a-lug
Make ya wanna holler heidi-ho

The rosy red cheeks of the little children
Bobbies on bicycles two by two

Cain’t roller-skate in a buffalo herd
But you can be happy if you’ve a mind to…

@ozo did you have any leak issues on the Nefarius?
My son has leak issues on it and I’m still wondering on the cotton lengths… some say just the top, some to the bottom, but he got sick of the leaks and went on a TFV8 or whatever is its name… (and broke the glass tank)

Your thought please…

Sir Ozo…you still have one of the best collections I have ever seen, unbelievable :wink:

No leaks with the Nefarius, none ever.
I wick them just like an Avocado, tails just thru the deck, no longer.

They will leak if left on their side for any length of time, a siphon effect.

Just thinking…where was his Nefarius leaking,
glass, o-ring, center pin, ???

2 Likes

When he lays it on the sides, I guess it was through the air holes.
It was a test I did when I tried to put the cotton well inside the tank, instead of doing it Avocado style, just to see if that (wrong wicking) could be the issue.
I have to try again coz I personally think that the Nefarius is a far better atomizer then the TFV8…

I am looking around at over a dozen different types of atomizers
that I readily see, and I can’t think of any that would NOT leak
if left laying on their side for any period of time, like over a couple
of minutes…maybe a Kayfun or a Kanger SubTank…???

KST yes and the DWARF if proper built.

Bloody cool idea, an RTA with reserveTank.

I like Asmodus, and the Spruzza is good. Good board, good mod body.
It only takes a single 18650, it has a touch screen that takes a few minutes
to get used to, a weird juice tank that takes some getting used to.
The screen/board has a nice setting for a soft-normal-hard hit, kind of like
a pre-set curve mode.
I prefer dual coils, especially in old Velocity V2, but use Recurve, Oni-One,
Kayfun5, Avocado 22mm, and others for daily single coil attys.
The Spruzza works well with either, is built with quality, and at a $35 sale price-point
is wonderful for any atomizers I decide to juice up.
Stabwood or Mosaic resin.
Of course, it is excellent with a Nefarius on top.

Speaking of the Spruzza…
If you MTL, if you like a Kayfun, they pair very well.

Most of my coils ohm out about .25-.35 whether single or dual,
but my Kayfun5’s are all .5-.55 because I use them still on Provari’s.

Even DTL this pairing is great [I don’t remember how to MTL]

If a single 18650 doesn’t punch enough for you anymore,
there are some great options with mods receiving the larger batts.
[One] of my favorites is the Vandy Vape Pulse, now in three
different basic configurations…Pulse Mech, Pulse 80w BF,
Pulse 90w BF.
I use the [inexpensive] mech model when doing yard work,
with a Nefarius on top (bet you didn’t see that coming).
I only have the Purple and the Rose Gold Nefarius, but I have
a box full of them, and more on my desk. One helluva deal
for under $20 each.
Pulse Mech for $20…80W for $35…who wouldn’t dive head first
into the rabbit hole, eh?
Hits good with an 18650 [don’t buy cheap-ass batts], but the Pulse
also accepts a Sugar-Ray-Punching 20700.
Small enough for travel, big enough for serious vapes…gotta love it.
The Pulse Mech has a SIMPLE switch to turn it off for pocket/purse carry.

Now, to get seriously simple, or simply serious, eh?
Mike/Wotofo Recurve
Fits all four batteries 18650-20650-20700-21700
[well not at the same time…]
Don’t buy cheap-ass batteries…rule #! …you will pay for
them ‘in the end’…
No shit to set, adjust, forget, etc.
just get it, stick it, and go.
Pairs so, so well with the Nefarius [have I mentioned that atty?]
Great with a Galatek (dual coil), a Recurve (single coil), etc.
Maybe a bit on the heavy side weight wise, but a solid built mod.
Fits several silicone bottle mfg’s, ergonomically fits your hand,
soft to the touch finish, and resembles a penguin [a huge plus, eh?]
Have I mentioned a Nefarius atty? Can be had for under $20.
The Recurve mod can be had for $22, in five different colors,
one in that ‘g’ word color that I can’t mention.
Even with a no-nic juice this combo can give you a satisfying
throat hit and vape fun that will keep you smiling.
I keep/rotate/use at least 5 of these mods daily, with Galatek, Nefarius,
and more, and it never gets boring. Am I boring you?

Did I mention how well it pairs with the Nefarius?
This combo gives you 7ml+ in the bottle and 3ml in the S-RDTA
S-RDTA = Squonkable Rebuidable Drippable Tank Atomizer
The Nefarius has a small screw with an o-ring that goes in the
bottom of the center pin. Comes in it, for use as a non-squonk tank,
or remove it for use on a squonk mod. Very easy to remove and/or
put back, plus spares come with it in the parts bag.

Maybe you don’t squonk, but may wish to some day,
this is an example of a non-squonk mod and a squonk-capable tank.
Minikin Boost and Nefarius S-RDTA
Dual 18650’s for a nice punch [don’t buy cheap-ass batteries].
Plug is still in the center pin so no chance of leaking on the 510,
and can even be placed on a squonk mod and used as a tank
without removing the plug, and simply top-filled. Pretty versatile.
Plus it has great flavor, in my top 5 atty’s.
I only have one problem with the Nefarius…taking it apart the very first time.

@ozo Is there a specific location you pickup spare squonk bottles (the little bottles that go into the mod) for the Pulse? Or do you just grab them if you happen to see them at a site your visiting?
