First Impression out of the Box

DeucesJack: What’s up everyone? DeucesJack at Today, I have the Desire Designs Cut Squonk Mod and that cloud you just saw was courtesy of the brand new Digiflavor Drop. We’re going to be reviewing it real soon. But enough of that. Let’s get into the mod itself. We got a single 21700 mod here up to 180 watts. 0.96 inch, OLED display, it’s got an LED on the front there like that. Nice little subtle one. I’m kind of digging it.

Let’s cut downlow. Let me show you everything. We’ll go over the menu system. I’ll show you the squonk bottle. I’ll show you what batteries fit. Then we’re going to come back on top and we’ll talk about it a bit. See you downlow.

Here is your mod in a nice little plastic bag. We’re going to put that to the side for now. Here is your 18650 battery adapter. Inside that, you’ll find a micro USB cable for charging and updates. You’ll also get two 510 protectors that go on top of your 510 to protect the finish. Also included in the box is a Cut Squonk mod user manual and a product warranty card.

Let’s go over the mod real quick.

From Top To Bottom

On top here, we got a pretty clean-looking design. A little bit of a recession here. Not much. It won’t affect weather your atomizers has gap or not. Stainless steel threading on the inside, gold-plated squonk pin with what I would call a stiff spring with a medium throw to it. So far, all of my squonking atomizers have sat flush on it.

Different colored buttons here, triangular shape firing button. Digging the red on black. Minus and plus button over here. This is your screen. Micro USB port, and there is a light over here that I’ll show you when we out batteries in it.

Here is your squonk cut out over here. nice shape to it. A little bit of Desire Design branding over here. Here is where you put your fingernail to take the battery and squonk cover off. You’ll notice two nice strong magnets that coincide with two strong magnets here.

On the bottom, we don’t really have much going on. Here is your squonk bottle, clean battery tray, clear battery indicator markings although I wish they would have done in a different color. Gold-plated button style contact over here, gold-plated, spring-loaded contact over here.

In order to take your bottle out, you simply give it a little tug. You also have a gold-plated nozzle that your squonking tube goes on to. Nice job on that. Here is your squonk bottle. Nice threading on the bottle itself. Comes right off. Tube is pre-cut. I wish this ring, this metal ring was a little longer so you can get a better grip and you don’t make a mess while you’re screwing your bottle cap back on. Always put the positive side in first because that’s where the spring-loaded part is. You can see 20700s have no issue. Here is a Snowwolf battery. Really really tight but it gets in there.

Here is an AVB 21700. This one will not fit. I just can’t get it in there no matter what I do. Here is one of the batteries that came with one of my Tesla mods. This is also a 21700 and that one fits.

Like a lot of you may know already, not all 21700s are exactly the same size. Some may fit, some may not. I have been running my 20700s in it without any issues. It’s not a problem.

Here is your screen and because this part of the mod is so big, the screen is a little disappointing in size. There is your battery meter. A little bit of Cut branding, the mode you’re in, variable wattage. You can see your watts right there, your volts right there. Your amps and your resistance.

Menu System

In order to access your menu system, you hit the fire button 3 times. You’ll see variable wattage is not flashing. That will allow you to scroll between TCNI, TCTI, TCSS, TCR mode, Curve mode and back to Variable Wattage mode. If we co into Temperature control mode, you’ll notice now I can adjust in 10-degree increments and right now it says it’s at 50 watts.

In order to change the wattage in TC mode, all you do is click the button 3 times and use the minus button to scroll down. Do you see where the W was blinking? Now I can adjust my wattage up or down in temperature control mode. Hit the fire button to confirm. Go back to wattage now and that’s basically it.

That’s pretty much the whole menu system. If you hit the minus and the plus together and hold it for two seconds, you can clear the time. If you hit the plus and minus button together, it will lock the keys. Do the same thing to unlock the keys. And that’s it folks, that’s the whole menu system.

Let’s cut back on top, let’s talk about it, we’re going to squonk on it and vape on it. Then we’ll go over cons and pros and we’re out of here as usual. See you back on top.

General Thoughts

Alright everyone, we’re back on top with the Desire Designs Cut mod. I switched atomizers up a little bit. i just got this Geekvape MTL RDA in, figured I give it a try, see what it’s like.

Desire Cut Squonk Mod Review

First thing I got to say about this mod is it’s got a nice form factor. It does feel great in the hand but it’s also got a very weird form factor when it comes to functionality. Let me explain. When you hit the fire button with your thumb in your right hand, it’s kind of hard to reach around and curl your finger around to squonk so if I turn it and I finger fire it, then I kind of got to do like a little finger dance to get my finger in there to squonk it. The best way to use it really is in the left hand. If you thumb fire it, you can kind of slide your thumb down and then squonk it like that but I think they should have taken the squonk bottle and put it in the other corner. Put it right below the buttons because I think it would have easier as a rightie to hit the fire button and then squonk. Hit the fire button and squonk. I just don’t understand why they laid it out that way. It’s kind of weird.

Desire Cut Squonk Mod Review

I do like the squonk bottle, the fact that they didn’t go with a proprietary one and it’s a 7 ml bottle, you can also replace it with the coil master gremlin bottle, it fits perfectly in there. That’s good.

Some batteries will not fit. I showed you that downlow. Some normal type, we all know that not all 21700s have the exact same dimensions so I just want you to be aware of that. TC on it is definitely on the anemic side. Very disappointing. I got to point that out.

Dimensions on this thing are 86 x 45 x 33. Like I said I can’t say it enough. It feels really comfortable when you’re in your hand. I just wish they would have went for that one-handed squonking a design better than they did this. I feel like I’m playing a piano when I went to squonk it with one hand. It’s kind of ridiculous.

Let’s get into the cons and the pros.


First one is going to be they definitely should have centered at 510. Look at all that wasted real estate up there. I hate when mod manufactures do that. Guys, we want you to put 510s on the mod so to maximize the atomizer that we could put on that mod. What the hell is so hard to understand. I don’t understand why China can get that and learn that lesson.

The other con is going to be that LED. While it’s nice and classy, it’s not programmable. It’s only one color. I can shut it on or off that’s it. Why are you giving me an LED when I can’t change the colors? Kind of ridiculous. I’m giving them a card for that.

I already went over the awkward functionality of the shape. They’re getting a con for that.

No extra squonk battle, big con on that. I don’t care, China, if you use a proprietary bottle or a regular bottle, you need to include to squonk bottles in a kit or in a mod packaging especially if it’s a proprietary bottle even though this one isn’t there still should have been two in there.

The last con is going to be one amp charging. Guys, really? In today’s day and age, that’s way you want to be? Come on, man. Two and charging is standard you guys need to get with the program.

Let’s go over to the pros because there’s plenty of them.


First pro is going to be, like I said, the functionality of the form factor is weird but the form factor itself, the way it feels in your hand, comfortable as hell. I’m giving them a pro for that.

Ramps up and fires quickly, pro.

Nice screen. I like that screen. I think they did a good job laying it out, pro.

Fires down to 0.08 homes, huge pro on that one.

Nice battery door. Look at that thing, man. It don’t move, pro.

Regular squonk bottle, pro. Simple menu system, they’ll get a pro for that.

Feels very accurate especially in power mode, pro.

Very subtle branding, yeah some people are going to say, “But Jack what about the light?” The light is, it’s not offensive at all. It isn’t. And the Desire Designs is white on white so I’ll give them a pro for subtle branding.

Let’s give them a pro because it’s firmware upgradable. You always get a pro for that on this channel.

Great paint job look at this thing. The white is just beautiful, they did a nice job on the paint. It’s almost got like a semi pearl look to it, great job on that.

No button rattle. This thing is solid as they come. The build quality is there. They’ll get a pro for that.
