Squonking vs. Drippers: Pros, Cons

SquonkingVS.     Dripping


As the world of vaping continues to expand, more and more vapers are getting creative about how they customize their vape experience. From cloud chasers to flavor connoisseurs and every vaper in between, it seems like everyone is trying new vape styles and techniques. Two of the most popular special vape techniques are squonking and dripping, both promising a next-level experience for vapers that are willing to learn something new.

We’re breaking down the differences between squonking and dripping so you can decide if either one is a vape style that’s right for you.

What is Dripping?

Dripping is a vaping technique that requires the vaper to manually drip e-juice onto their device’s cotton, saturating the wick. Using an RDA, you’ll be taking charge of the saturation process rather than letting the mod do it for you. Many drippers enjoy this technique because it gives them a highly-customizable experience, and also boosts both flavor quality and cloud production.

What is Squonking?

Squonking is similar to dripping in that it directly involves the vaper in saturating the wick, using a specially-designed squonk mod. Once you squeeze the mod’s built-in squonk bottle, e-juice is transferred to the wick, and you’ll be able to vape.

Overall, the results of squonking and dripping are fairly similar, but the process itself is different. You’ll enjoy the amplified flavor and increased vapor production with both methods, it just depends on how you prefer to get there.

Pros of Squonking

Here are just a few of the many benefits of squonking:

  • Less mess than dripping: Instead of holding a juice bottle and manually dripping, you’ll be using a built-in e-juice reservoir that eliminates spills and mess.
  • A simpler process: You won’t need to juggle a mod and bottle of juice, because squonking combines the two in a single, specially-built device.
  • Increased juice capacity: When compared with traditional mod tanks, squonk bottles can often hold considerably more e-liquid. While the average vape tank might hold around 5mL, squonk bottles are usually 7mL at minimum (with some holding up to 30mL!).
  • Fresh flavor: One of the biggest benefits to squonking: It cranks flavor up several notches, especially when compared to regular vaping.

Cons of Squonking

To be fair, squonking does come with a few drawbacks – it’s up to you to decide if they’re dealbreakers:

  • It can be expensive: Buying a special squonk mod doesn’t always come cheap, especially if you make a smart investment in a quality device. Luckily, the growing popularity of squonking has welcomed an impressive variety of kits at different price points.
  • Battery life is usually shorter: Since squonk mods have to leave space for the built-in bottle, you’re usually cut down to a single battery, which means shorter battery life.
  • There’s a squonking learning curve: Just like any vape technique, it might take a little practice to figure out how to squonk correctly.
