Aspire Feedlink Revvo Squonk Mod Kit: Introduction and Guide
Is the word "squonk” a part of your vocabulary yet? Squonk mods – also called bottom feeders – are some of the most popular devices in the vaping universe right now. Until recently, though, most squonk mods were unregulated mechanical devices best left to experts with plenty of e-cigarette safety knowledge. Now, that has changed. With the release of the Feedlink Revvo Squonk Mod kit, Aspire has entered the world of squonk mods with a protected bottom feeder that has a full suite of safety features – and that’s not even the part that makes this device truly unique.
A Squonk Mod With a Tank
There are plenty of squonk mod kits on the market today. The problem, though, is that most of those kits include rebuildable atomizers. Switching to a bottom-feeder mod, in other words, would mean that you’d have to learn how to build your own coils – and many people simply aren’t prepared for that change. To work for squonking, a tank would need a hollow center pin. The designer would also have to adapt the tank to receive e-liquid from the bottom. Using a squonk mod with a tank was virtually impossible – until now.
Aspire’s new Revvo tank has a design that’s perfect for squonking, and Aspire adapted the tank for use with the Feedlink Squonk Mod. The new Aspire Revvo Boost tank holds 2 ml of e-liquid. The included food-safe silicone bottle holds an additional 7 ml of e-liquid inside the body of the Feedlink mod. That’s 9 ml of total e-liquid storage!
What Are the Benefits of the Aspire Feedlink Squonk Mod?
If you’re a constant vaper, you know that even a large sub-ohm tank doesn’t provide enough storage for all-day vaping. You need to refill your tank several times every day – and although the Aspire Revvo tank makes filling easier, it would be a lot nicer if you could fill your device once and vape all day. That’s the benefit of the Aspire Feedlink. Is your tank looking a little low? Gently squeeze the silicone bottle to send e-liquid up through the bottom of the tank. A full squonk bottle can completely fill the 2 ml Aspire Revvo Boost tank three times – and you’ll still have a little e-liquid left in the bottle after the third refill.
The Aspire Feedlink’s Sleek Design
Having an e-liquid bottle inside the device means that the Aspire Feedlink is, by necessity, a bit larger than some other single-battery vaping mods. Aspire compensated for that fact by giving the Feedlink a small twisting battery cap rather than the thick, locking battery door that most box mods use. The Feedlink also has a slightly rounded pistol grip that makes it feel great in the hand. You might even forget that the bottle is there – until it’s time to refill your tank!
How to Use the Aspire Feedlink and Revvo Boost Tank
Preparing the Battery
The Aspire Feedlink uses a single 18650 battery. If you need some batteries, grab them here before checking out. Charge a battery in the external charger of your choice. Unscrew the battery cap on the bottom of the Aspire Feedlink and insert the battery with the positive terminal facing up. Replace the battery cap.
Filling the Aspire Revvo Boost Tank
The Aspire Revvo Boost tank has a filling nozzle in the center of the mouthpiece. You can fill the tank without opening it. Use an e-liquid bottle with a thin tip. Locate the cone-shaped object in the center of the Aspire Revvo mouthpiece. Place the tip of your bottle in the middle of the cone and push down gently. You should feel the cone move. Squeeze the bottle until the tank is full.
Filling the Aspire Feedlink Squonk Bottle
To remove the squonk bottle from the Aspire Feedlink, unscrew the round black cap on the bottom of the device. Pull the entire bottle assembly out. The assembly includes a black outer case and a cap with a long nozzle. Remove the cap. Fill the tank, replace the cap and push the bottle assembly back into the mod. Replace the bottom cap. Below is an image chart showing you how to fill and replace the squonk bottle.
Using the Aspire Feedlink
After you fill the Aspire Revvo Boost tank for the first time – or when you install a new coil – you should hold the mod upside down or place it on its side for a few minutes to let the cotton wick saturate.
Press the fire button five times quickly to turn the Aspire Feedlink on and off. The light flashes three times in response. That’s it! To vape, simply hold the button and enjoy.
Aspire Feedlink Tips
Monitoring Battery Life
The color of the indicator light on the Aspire Feedlink changes to tell you how much battery life is left. The Feedlink uses the full available power of the battery, so you’ll also notice that the vapor production drops as you deplete the battery’s charge.
If the indicator light is:
Blue: The battery’s charge level is between 50 and 100 percent.
Blue and red: The battery’s charge level is between 20 and 50 percent.
Red: The battery’s charge level is below 20 percent.
Below is a Diagram poster showing how to properly replace the battery on the Aspire feedlink Revvo kit.
The Aspire Feedlink isn’t a mechanical mod; it has built-in safety features to ensure that you can vape without danger. This device features:
10-second puff limit to control heat and prevent accidental firing
Temperature monitoring to shut the device down if its temperature exceeds 176° Fahrenheit
Battery protection to shut the device down when the battery’s charge level is below 3.2 volts
Replacing the Aspire Revvo Boost Coil
You can check the status of your Aspire Revvo Boost coil any time by unscrewing the tank’s top cap. If the coil has become very dark – and you begin to detect a burned flavor when vaping – it’s time to change the coil.
Unscrew the black top cap of the tank.
Unscrew the cone-shaped retaining nut.
Pull the current coil out of the tank.
Push in a new coil. Confirm that the silicone ring around the coil is firmly seated within the glass enclosure.
Replace the retaining nut and top cap.
Note that the Aspire Revvo Boost – and the original Aspire Revvo – are slightly different tanks with incompatible coils. A coil for the Aspire Revvo Boost has a blue o-ring around the edge. A coil for the original Aspire Revvo has a red o-ring and will not work with the Aspire Feedlink. Below is an exploded view of how to replace the Aspire ARC coil on the Asire Reevo Boost tank.
