So Insiders, let’s talk about this one a little bit. I got to admit. When I first got this, I look at it and I was like, “Jesus, really, an unregulated squonker?” I was like, “I hope this isn’t like the Druga.” I never really heard of Mass Mods. I never really reviewed anything from them. Apparently, they have a CS1 squonker that looks exactly like this with a different type of fire button. Apparently, it was a very, very popular mod and it’s also expensive for what it is. It goes for around $200. I guess what Mass Mods and Augvape set out to do was make a more affordable version of that CS1 because it was so popular. I guess they wanted something that they could bring to the masses. When you look at the two mods, you can tell. When you put them next to each other or you look at the picture, the CS1 was definitely the inspiration for this. I’m sure because of the price tag, the CS1 is probably made out of more premium materials. I really can’t comment on the differences between the two because that wouldn’t be fair because I don’t actually own a CS1. so when you ask me, “Deuces, is this thing just as good as the CS1 just at a more affordable price tag?” I can’t intelligently answer that question. I will say this, with the impression that this mod made on me, I might actually go out and buy a CS1. so basically, what I’m trying to tell you is if you were a fan of the CS1, if you always admire it, but you couldn’t justify that $200 price tag for it, you might want to check this thing out because it is a fantastic little squonker. I’ve been enjoying the hell out of this thing.
How are you doing today, Insiders? Today, we got a little bit of a throwback kind of mod. We’re talking about the Augvape and Mass Mods S2. The reason I say this is a little bit of a throwback is because this mod has a mop set in it. It’s an unregulated mod that you gotta build for. Most of the stuff we’ve been seeing lately has been fully regulated with a screen where you can adjust the wattage up and down. This isn’t that type of mod. Before we even get into the review, please remember, if you’re a beginner, this is not really a beginner mod. You gotta know what you’re doing. You gotta know your ohm’s law. If you’re going to buy something like this, make sure you watch some videos, make sure you get educated.
Before we get into the video, make sure you check out our new merch site. You can get my tagline on a shirt, or a hoodie.
What’s In The Box
Kind of neat, right? Kind of cool looking, almost looks like a graffiti type of S. A little bit of Mass mods branding over there, some Augvape branding over there. It’s balck on blac so it’s very subtle, it doesn’t bother me at all. There’s your squonk bottle, 8.5mls if i remember correctly. There’s your fire button. Of course you have the squonk pin in there, gold-plated, spring-loaded that I would say has a stiff spring with a medium throw to it. You do have this nice, little o-ring in there to keep things at bay. Stainless steel plate around that. I like that little o-ring. It kind of stops the juice from leaking out the sides. Nice job on that. Very tactile, hear that? Very tactile, clicky firing button. Awesome job on that. It is raised up off the mod like that. These little grooves right here and here, this thing is comfortable in the hand. It really is. Unbelievably comfortable, just a great job as far as the comfort goes.
Wanted to give you a quick size comparison. This is the Ehpro Iguana, here is the S2, and here is the original Pulse unregulated mod. Let me show you what we’re working with here. You can see, very, very similar. Definitely a little shorter than the Iguana but very, very close, as far as form factor, as far as feel in the hand, weight. The reason I wanted to show it next to the Pulse is because it’s my humble opinion that this is the mod that actually brough squonking to the masses. I give Tony B full credit for that. Nobody even knew what squonking was. It was a really specialized type of vaping until Tony B brought it to the forefront. And this is going to vape very similar to it because this has protections built in as well, but it’s unregulated. You got to build for it just like you have to build for this one. You can see the Pulse is squarer but it doesn’t have the same form factor. It doesn’t have the same feel in the hand. The Mass Mods one is definitely much more comfortable. This one is a lot squarer and chunkier. But you can see, that’s the type of form factor you’re working with.
From Top To Bottom
Let me pull the door off for you, show you the insides and the battery door. The first thing you’re going to notice when you get this, it’s got nice strong magnets right there, really nice job on that. Big, comfortable squonk hole. These are aluminum doors. They are beautiful, just a real, really job on them. They fit really tight and they do not wiggle which I’ll show you in a moment. On the battery tray here, you can see we got black on clack battery markings. They are deeply engraved in there but they still should be a different color. I gotta call them out on that, I really do.
Over here, you got gold-plated connections over here. There is your firing button. Nice, clean wiring going all the way down. This is your Mass *** right here. Not crazy about the board being on the bottom here just because in anything dealing with liquid, liquid’s going to seek its level and it’s going to travel to the bottom of the board. But they did come up with a kind of ingenious solution to that. Let me show you what I’m talking about. Here’s the squonk bottle, nice, soft and silicony. Look at the squonk bottle, see that catch cup? You can see, I actually got a little bit of juice in there. Just in case it leeks from here, it will fill up this cup first before it hits the board. So that’s kind of a nice job on that. Really, really ingenious. I’ve never seen that before. Very, very impressed with the squonk bottle, really.
Over here, you can see, everything is gold-plated. There is your switch, there is your wiring. The wiring is very clean. It’s in these channels. I don’t know if you can see that. Nice job. I kind of wish it wasn’t exposed. I wish there was some protection over here, I really do. But overall, just a clean job, it really is. You notice, if I take my coiling rod and poke all the way through, the back door came off. Know that’s by design but if you’re going to make the back door come off by design, since there’s no squonk hole, there should have been some type of fingernail tab to get it off. There isn’t. These are nice, strong magnets and just like the squonk door, this thing fits on there solidly. and it’s made out of aluminum, very, very solid feel to it.
The other thing, I’m really not sure how I feel about this tray because if you’re going to put a tray in like this, you should have put a battery strapping down here because it’s one of those moods where it kind of got a bang against my hand to get the battery out because it’s not easy for me to get that backdoor off and then push through because the tray is now here and I can’t push my battery through. So I would have like to have seen a battery strap in here. Even though I’m not a fan of straps, I would have like to have seen it on this mod.
I want to turn the back around so you could see all the wiring. Wiring is done nice and clean in these channels, just a really, really nice job. Very, very clean. Let me show you how the back door goes back on. You just pop it in, just like that. You hear those magnets? And then it kind of clips in. look at this. This thing don’t move. It don’t move side to side, it don’t move up and down. Bang up job, Augvape.
Let’s throw a battery in here now. We’re going to put it in, positive side up. You just pop it in, just like that. Now if we want to install our squonk bottle, you just take you squonk bottle, attach it to that tube and push it on, just like so. No, don’t hit me up in the comments and ask me if your squonk bottle in going to come with juice in it because it’s not, because you’re so clever. So, I know I’m going to get at least two or three comments like that everytime I do a video with juice in the squonk bottle. Some clever guy always hits me up in the comments like that. Put the squonk door on, just like that. It kind of snaps in. Again, no movement. Doesn’t move up, doesn’t move side to side. Awesome, awesome job. Just a phenomenal job all around with the build quality and the way these doors fit.
Let’s take one more look around the Augvape S2 by Augvape and Mass Mods. Just in case you’re wondering, I’ve been running my Wasp Nano on it and I’ve been getting a hell of a vape off of it. I’ve been putting like a 0.27 build in there and it’s just been fantastic.
That’s it, Insiders. Let’s go over those cons and pros.
First con is going to be the black on black battery markings. That’s a no-no. Augvape should know better. It’s a con.
I don’t like that Mass fed is sitting below the juice bottle. I know they made it water resistant but I just don’t like the location of it.
No second squonk bottle. Really, Augvape? You gotta be kidding me. You gotta put two squonk bottles in a package. That’s just the way it is.
No user manual.
And the last con is that back door, not the squonk door, the other door. Could have used the fingernail tab. I don’t like the fact that I gotta poke something through the mod to get that door off.
But that’s it on the cons. Real knit-picky kind of stuff. Let’s move on to the pros.
First pro is going to be, soon as you put this thing in your hand, it’s got an awesome feel to it. It’s comfortable if you trigger-finger fire it, or if you thumb-fire it. It doesn’t matter. When you trigger it, it’s a true one-handed squonker. You can fire with your trigger finger and then you can squonk with that finger. Conversely, if you put this in your left hand, it’s a true one-handed squonker if you’re a thumb-fierer. I like that. It’s a pro.
Solid doors on this one. These doors got no give to them. They don’t move.
Clean wiring inside.
Great 8.5ml capacity.
Listen, hear that? Hear that nice clicky fire button? It’s tactile, I love it.
I like that o-ring on the 510, keeping that juice at bay. Good job, Augvape.
I got to give them props for that squonk bottle. That squonk bottle with that cup design in it is so unique and so ingenious. It’s just a great job. I got to recognize Augvape and Mass Mod for that. It’s very, very ingenious.
This thing hits hard. I got my Wasp Nano on top of it with a 0.25 build in it. Check this out. Any questions? This thing hits. That’s a single coil Wasp Nano, can you believe that? This thing chucks. Check it out. Just fantastic.
I’ve been enjoying the hell out of this mod. I really like the subtle branding on it.
For its price point, at around 50 bucks, this thing’s got some awesome build quality.
