DotMod are known for premium designs with simple, easy to use features. When we saw photos of this great looking mod, we were very excited to get our hands on it for review.
Whenever a new mod comes out, you have to balance your excitement with a bit of apprehension. What if Dotmod released it prematurely to keep up with the squonk trend? Will the mod fire well? What will the bottle be like? I’m excited to say that despite our original trepidation, we were happily surprised- this is a great mod.
Design & Build Quality
DotMod makes great design choices and they always have great packaging. This mod is no different.
The dotSquonk has compatibility with both 20700 and 18650 batteries using the provided adapter. The measurements are 82 x 48.5 x 26 mm and the aluminium frame makes it surprisingly light and gives it a great hand feel. The removable magnetic side panels have very strong magnets and there’s no play or movement with either panel on our device.
The Squonk Bottle
DotMod has made an excellent design choice in making the bottle square in shape. This makes it look neat and tidy and gives you more room for juice. It has a huge 12ml capacity. You can’t beat that!
The bottle has a subtle dotMod logo on the front, combined with an Ultem top cap with very smooth threading. The material is soft but not too soft and a pleasure to squonk with.
It has enough firmness that makes refilling the bottle very easy.
The fire button and the 510 could perhaps be a bit better. While they are both aesthetically pleasing and are gold plated brass, they are not as practical as they could be.
The 510 has no connection problems at all and is spring loaded. With some atomizers, you may find that there is not a totally flush fit. To help with this, they have included some small o-rings that sit in the groove of the 510 and help seal the atomizer and prevent leaking. I have not had any leaking issues whatsoever now that I am using these.

Minor flaws aside, I have no concerns over the performance of this mod.
This mod fires well and hits consistently hard. There may well be a little voltage drop there, but it’s really hard to tell and is pretty negligible.
So performance wise the dotSquonk matches it’s excellent looks.

I still love using the dotSquonk, and it’s that one device that all my non-vaping and non-squonking friends always comment on. It looks and feels fantastic and performs well, and that’s what keeps me using it.
