The Project Sub Ohm Desire Cut Squonk mod, featuring a very ergonomic shape and built from top quality Zinc alloy, is a true thing of beauty. It takes full advantage of its 0.96-inch OLED display and works with one 18650 or one 21700 battery. Packed with electronics and powered by a very responsive board, this squonker is one of the most technologically advanced devices in its category.

What you get in the Desire Cut box
The Project Sub Ohm Desire Cut squonker comes packed in a top quality white presentation box. Inside you will find the device itself, a micro-USB cable, a 21700 to 18650 battery sleeve, the user manual and warranty card. It is available in a single color – Black – and we have to say it's definitely worth the $70 price tag.
Design and main features
First thing you will notice when holding the device is its impressive build quality and odd but ergonomic shape. The cross-section is almost like a rectangle but with a cut right near the 510 connector. It has a reasonable amount of weight to it and feels great in the hand. There's a big "Project Sub Ohm" logo on one of the sides and makes this mod look high end.
On top we have spring loaded 510 connector featuring a gold plated bottom feeding center pin. The fire button and the two adjustment buttons are on one part of the cut while the OLED display and the micro-USB slot on the other. The battery door is magnetic and it's also the access door to the squonk bottle.
The Project Sub Ohm Desire Cut Squonk mod works with a single 21700 battery, or with a 18650 cell as long as you use the provided sleeve. The squonk bottle is made from silicone and has a total capacity of 7.0ml. It's easy to use, easy to take out and clean and doesn't use a metallic probe.
A very capable chip and a cool display
The Project Sub Ohm Desire Cut squonker has a maximum output of 108W when used with a 21700 battery. Maximum current in this case is 35A and it will fire down to 0.08 Ohms. It features temperature control presets for Nickel, Titanium and Stainless Steel and the range is between 200 – 600F. There's also a PMG function, where you can adjust the power curves for builds with low ramp-up times.
The 0.96" OLED display shows output wattage or temperature, output voltage, atomizer resistance, battery life as well as a material and mode selection. It features a pulsating Project Sub-Ohm Logo in the color blue, right below the regular screen. This can be adjusted to flash continuously or just when you press the fire button. More detailed info about this in the user manual.
Performance and final words
The Project Sub Ohm Desire Cut squonk mod is nicely built, affordable, powerful and very responsive. It's intended to be used with bottom feeding RDAs and has great ergonomics. It's pretty bulky and the adjustment buttons are a bit hard to press but the build quality is very good.
The display is crisp and easy to read and the pulsating logo is a nice gimmick. You can use it with two types of batteries and we're pretty sure you can also fit a 20700 cell inside with no trouble. We had no issues with the device during our tests and it also comes with safety features.
