Squonk mods are very popular these days and the Eleaf Pico Squeeze 2 is one of the most beautiful we tested. The design has a retro vibe and reminds us of a 2013 iTaste VTR. It's sleek, easy to use and with the metallic finish feels great in the hand. This mod includes the Coral 2 RDA, a very good single coil atomizer that's perfect for moderate clouds and flavor.
Compatible with 21700/18650 batteries
Nice RDA in the box
Adjustment buttons are hard to press individually
The deck is a bit tricky to build on
Airflow is not that smooth
What you get with the Squeeze 2 squonker kit
The Pico Squeeze 2 squonker from Eleaf is beautifully packed and comes with everything you need. You will get the mod itself, the Coral 2 RDA with an 810 drip tip in matching color, the micro-USB cable, and the 18650 battery adapter. In the box you will also find spare post screws, a spare 510 pin, a spare squeeze bottle, a screwdriver, two Clapton coils and some cotton.
The kit is available in five different colors: Silver, Black, Red, Purple, and Rainbow â€“ with Red and Black being our absolute favorites.
The design of the Pico Squeeze 2
This petite box mod squonker has a very interesting design. It measures 97mm x 56mm x 28mm with the RDA on and weighs around 220 grams without battery. On the top we have the Coral 2 rebuildable atomizer with a beauty ring around it as well as the top cap for the 21700 cell. The knurling on the top cap and beauty ring helps with the overall retro vibe of the mod.
The display and adjustment buttons are placed on the face of the mod, while the fire button and micro-USB slot on the back. The squonk bottle is made from silicone and it's very easy to squeeze. It's protected by a metallic mask that snaps onto the device through powerful magnets.
To refill with e-liquid you will need to take off the mask and pull out the bottle. The cap is a bit offset due to the design of the rod system and this ensures a more pleasant squeeze experience. You will be able to fit up to 8ml of juice inside and that's more than enough for a single coil build.
The chipset and main features of the Squeeze 2 squonker
The Pico Squeeze 2 squonk mod is powered by the new Avatar chip. It's very responsive, intuitive and easy to use. It features variable wattage up to 100W in 1W increments, temperature control, bypass mode and TCR. There are predefined profiles for Nickel, Titanium, and Stainless Steel and you can adjust power in TC mode.
The mod fires down to 0.05 Ohms and maximum voltage is 9.0V. It allows for 2A fast charging and works with a single 21700 or an 18650 battery. You can also get away with using a 20700 without the sleeve but we recommend sticking to the cells indicated by the manufacturer.
Behind the e-liquid bottle there's we have an LED notification light. This will make the whole bottle light up when you turn the device on or take a puff and there are plenty of colors to choose from. The big pro is that you can turn off the feature completely in case you're not a fan of flashing LEDs.
The board also offers over-charge, over-discharge, short-circuit, over-current, and reverse polarity protections. It allows for future firmware upgrades and the change of the default logo via Eleaf software.
The Coral 2 RDA
The Coral 2 RDA seems to be a very good match for the Pico Squeeze 2 mod. It's intended for single coil build and comes with adjustable airflow. The posts sit at an angle and this helps maximize on vapor production and flavor.
The atomizer has a very generous juice well and it's great for squonking. You can also use it in dripper mode by replacing the BF 510 pin with the regular one. It takes some time to get used to the build deck but it's nothing out of the ordinary.
We really liked the acrylic 810 drip tip as well as the good quality O-rings used on this RDA.
Squeeze 2 squonker: Performance and final words
The Eleaf Pico Squeeze 2 is a very good squonk starter kit aimed at beginners and mid-range vapers. It's easy to use, feels well-built and the menu system is intuitive. With the kit you also get the Coral 2 RDA, which perfectly matches the 100W output. It delivers good vapor and flavor and it's one of the top squonkers you will find in this price range.
One con we have to mention is that the adjustment buttons are hard to press individually, especially if you have big thumbs. Another con is with the build deck. The leads need to be trimmed to position before placing the coil through the posts and this can be rather tricky at times.
