Can I go on the record and say that I can’t stand the term “squonker?” In an industry that continues a daily fight for legitimacy and public acceptance, how is a term like “squonker” going to advance that cause?
Consider this my first attempt to change the phrasing – things like “bottom-flow atomizer,” “pump-fill RDA” or even “squeeze fill system” all get the job done without sounding like juvenile onomatopoeia.
Let’s get to the item at hand, the HCigar VT Inbox DNA 75. This compact, single-18650 squonk box has a lot of nice things going for it, with only a few hiccups to get in the way.
Vapers around the world will tell you these Evolv DNA devices sell themselves. Apparently, HCigar took that to heart when crafting the packaging for the VT Inbox, because it is about as stark and pedestrian as can be, with only a mild black logo treatment atop a plain white box. This is clearly a device with its own selling power, because the packaging certainly isn’t going to turn heads, that’s for sure.
Opening the box, the HCigar VT Inbox device made an equally strange impression. This series of mods is touted for the replaceable magnetic side doors which allow fans to change the look and feel of their devices to such looks as carbon fiber, wood grain and more. However, my red test device had a candy apple hue throughout all the NON-replaceable sections of the frame, making me wonder how the colors would mesh with some of the other options.
The Hcigar VT Inbox has some flaws, for sure – most of which are related to the build quality. The buttons are far too loose for a device of this caliber, and the loose magnetic door is bound to cause some heartache for anyone who puts the VT Inbox in a pocket or purse.
But none of this changes the fact that the VT Inbox is a damn fine squonker for the money. With a proven, powerful DNA 75 chipset, nicely organized bottom-feed setup, and a smooth look and feel, I can see a lot of squonking newcomers making the jump to this style of vaping through the Hcigar VT Inbox.
