    Thinking about accidentally purchasing another squonk..

    So many topsides, I don't think I can justify the dual batterie as I have a perfectly good drone for that, and am looking for 21700 single preferably.

    So the question is what do you think is better the new topside single or the old? (not into mech mods so I can rule that out).


    Or something else..
    I love the size and shape of the Pulse Dual... didn't like two of them having fire button issues and having to be sent back, so not ruling out a dual battery. But what I would ultimately like is squonk at the front and fire button either above the squonk or at the back. I don't want another side door squonk. I like the pico squeeze but too heavy.

    Smaller the better.

    Any suggestions?

    Nikola Niagara dual 18650 thou pocket friendly but heavy add dual batteries. I've got dual topside and now IRS only in home use as to bulky or in a long trip in the car.

    How about one of @vapesmarter squonks?
    That way you can get exactly what you want!

    I had an original 21700 Topside, it's not particularly small or light TBH - superb battery life with a Samsung 40t and class leading liquid capacity. A very good mod nonetheless, I just hardly used mine as it was too big for me for out and about as I'm used to a wee single 18650 mech squonker.

    I've just taken delivery of the new Topside lite, and it's surprisingly light with the 21700 battery and a full bottle, although mainly plastic it's looks and feels like a very well made mod.

    I've still got my original single topside & yes it's a cracking mod but to heavy for out & about, I got a topside lite just before Xmas & it is alot lighter in the pocket & lasts me most the day before it needs a refill, certain will be ordering another from Steve @ SR-VAPES IMG_20200108_175148.jpeg

    I think you're right not to get the topside dual if you have the drone, I hardly use my dual as I favour the drone every time.

    The new Topside Lite kit is a whole new beast to me and using that more than I thought, my Topside single again is now near retired, the gimmick of being able to turn it into a single 21700 regular mod is actually better than I thought though it's more of a novelty I've only used a few times.

    The mod is quite big though for a single cell squonker but it's so much lighter in the pocket and the 21700 gives a decent battery life.

    The chipset is my 2nd favourite after the DNAc series, it's so damn fast and easy plus it's great for TC.

    I reviewed it for POTV front end here:
    https://www.planetofthevapes.co.uk/reviews/squonking/dovpo-topside-light-kit.html

    The Nikola Viagra (Niagara) is still my favourite pocket squonk mod, more compact than the topsides and battery life is superb (dual 18650), though it is quite heavy but I like it that way.

    Just read you found the Pico Squeeze 2 is too heavy, the Pico Squeeze is around 300g and the Topside Lite is around 250g, The Topside Dual is 370g and the Niagara is 360g (the Drone is 310g) if that helps with your decision.

    In the hand and pocket I favour the Pico Squeeze 2 over the Topside Lite as it's far more compact (around 33% smaller).

    The only negative i can say about my Topside Lite is the height. It is quite tall. (Taller than the original but as has been said much lighter)
