Introduction: The Feedlink Revvo Squonk Kit from Aspire
The Aspire Feedlink Revvo kit is the first Squonk device from the huge vape brand Aspire.
The kit version includes the Aspire Feedlink squonk mod and the Revvo Boost tank.
The Feedlink mod is a semi-regulated device. There are no adjustments and it will only output the power of the battery – like a mechanical device. However there are some safety features which are not on a mechanical device:
- 10 second fire cut off
- Battery reverse protection
- Short circuit protection
- Over discharge protection
- Over heat protection
- Battery level indicator light.
The mod requires a single 18650 battery which is not included and it outputs 3-4.2V depending on the charge state of the battery.
Inside the mod is the 7ml squonk bottle which when squeezed feeds the bottom feed Revvo Boost tank.
The Revvo Boost tank is basically the standard Aspire Revvo tank but with a bottom feed 510 pin.
The tank uses the new style flat radial coils and has a 2ml capacity chamber too.
There are 5 colour versions available – Silver, Black/Blue, Gunmetal/Chrome, Silver/Sunset Red and Black/Nightsky.
I have been excited to get this beauty fired up – especially the Revvo boost tank! I struggle with my hands so not always up to building RDA’s and there are not many with stock coil heads which are also bottom feed.

Build Quality & Design
This is an absolutely stunning kit it really is. Together the match of the tank and mod is just beautiful. It has a real industrial rugged feel to it in the Gunmetal version I received whilst still being pleasing to the eye.
Sadly though the tank is a slightly wider diameter than the mod resulting in a slight but noticeable overhang – which is very very sad.
Aspire Feedlink Squonk Mod
So to look at this it reminds you of the handle of a gun or some kind of hard-ass tool. The handle of a massive logger’s saw or something.
The side panels on mine are metal and in a darker colour than the mod body. They have a textured feel with “Aspire” branding set into them. Both sides of the mod look exactly the same so perfect for left or right hand use.
On the top of the mod is a sturdy 510 connector but the size of tank you can use on this is limited – as stated above the supplied Revvo Boost even overhangs a bit. So really 23mm diameter is about the maximum size without overhang. However the side panels of the mod do extend beyond that to take the whole width to 30mm but you can see the overhang.
Also on the top is the fire button. This is a textured pivoted button which feels a bit sloppy but doesn’t rattle and always responds perfectly. Behind that is a light which changes colour for battery life and also illuminates for various other functions.
The squonk bottle and battery are inserted from the base via removable caps.
The squonk bottle cap has a latch so you only need to turn it 45° and it opens. The battery cap however is fully threaded and is a pig to grip and takes forever to screw and unscrew with a long threading portion.
The squonk bottle is nice and soft but doesn’t always return to its shape straight away – it can take a few seconds to suck back. It is also quite darkly tinted which I don’t like.
Aspire Revvo Boost Tank
This is a really pretty tank to be honest. The mixture of black plastic and metal to match the colour of the mod body make this look lovely.
The small glass portion of the tank is super easy to see through.
The airflow adjustment on the top is really smooth and easy but you do have to look closely to see what setting you have it in as it’s not always obvious.
The top cap includes the drip tip so it doesn’t appear to be replaceable.
Just like the mod the build quality is superb and it feels and looks so well made.
How Does the Aspire Feedlink Revvo Squonk Kit Perform?
- Press the fire button 5 times quickly to turn on or off.
- Press the fire button to vape
- Squeeze the bottle to fill the tank
The battery capacity remaining is indicated on the light around the fire button.
- 3.9-4.2V(50-100% capacity) = blue light
- 3.5-3.8V (20-50%) = pink and blue light
- Below 3.5V (0-20%) = pink light
The indicator light also illuminates when any of the following faults occur:
- Flash 10 times when firing = fire button has been held down for over 10 seconds and firing will stop
- Flash 2 or 3 times = short circuit
- Orange light flashes 15 times = battery level too low to fire
- Blue and Orange stays lit = mod temperature too high – over 75°C
How To Install The Battery
You are not able to charge the battery with it installed on the mod. You don’t even get a USB cable in the kit – so make sure you have a good brand external battery charger at hand and know all your vape battery safety.
- Unscrew the battery cap on the base of the mod.
- Install a 18650 battery with the positive end going into the mod and the negative end at the battery cap end.
- Replace the battery cap.
Aspire Revvo Boost Tank
The tank is filled via the bottom feed squonk pin – simply squeeze the squonk bottle and watch the tank fill.
Whilst using if there is liquid in the tank you can tip the mod/tank over to splash more e-liquid onto the base of the coil.
You can adjust the airflow of the tank to your preference using the airflow control ring. More of the airflow slot exposed = more airflow and less exposed = restricted airflow.
One other thing to remember is although you can use the radial coils from the original Revvo tank – they are a slightly different resistance. The ones in the Revvo boost are 0.1-0.14ohm and the original ones are 0.1-0.16ohm as these were coupled with more powerful kits originally.
How To Fill The Aspire Feedlink Mod Squonk Bottle
Oh god this is sooo messy. Gripping the bottle to unscrew or screw on the top cap results in e-liquid weeing out the top so have plenty of tissues on standby.
- Push the bottle securing cap in slightly and turn until the cap is released.
- Pull the bottle from the mod.
- Unscrew the metal cap on the top of the bottle.
- Fill the bottle to the level required.
- Replace the bottle top cap.
- Install the bottle into the mod.
- Align the tabs on the bottle securing cap and turn to lock.
How To Change The Coil Head
- Remove the tank from the mod.
- Remove the top chamber from the tank.
- Unscrew the coil retaining nut.
- Pull the ARC coil from the tank.
- Install a new coil and make sure it is aligned with the side of the tank.
- Replace the retaining nut.
- Replace the top chamber.
- Place the tank on the mod and fill using the squonk bottle.
- Leave the tank to stand for a few minutes to prime the coil head.
Flavour & Cloud Production
This is a sub ohm tank so you will need high VG e-liquid.
I used one of my favourite IVG E-liquids the Blackcurrant millions which is 70% VG and I added nicotine to make it 6mg nicotine strength.
For an explanation of what VG and PG mean in regards to e-liquid read our handy guide.
The included coils are the radial ARC coils – the resistance can fluctuate but Aspire rate these at 0.1-0.14ohm and they are best at 70-80W.
Aspire Revvo Boost Tank Performance
So after filling I left this for about 10 minutes to soak up the liquid from the tank. You can only fill this via the Squonk pin I think – I am unable to get the top cap off anyway!
Straight away this blew my head off!
I had to close the airflow down a lot as it is super fierce with the airflow fully open! Wowee!
The flavour is beautiful too – am so surprised with this – I wasn’t really sure about these radial coils but wow I am a convert.
I only got 1 dry hit which was when the squonk bottle level was low and it didn’t seem to push much liquid up into the tank – so you simply just tilt the whole thing to soak up the liquid in the tank section of the Revvo Boost.
You can also leave re-squonking until the tank is almost empty – initially I kept the tank portion quite full but as I have been using it I keep forgetting and it’s quite happy to have the tank level pretty low. Don’t let it run dry though or you will damage your coil and your lungs!
I tend to use this with the airflow almost closed as to me it feels so powerful. Having recently reviewed the Horizon Falcon and used that at 100W this still feels more powerful.
I am on my 9th day of coil use and it still tastes as good as the first day.
Aspire Feedlink Squonk Mod Performance
In use it is comfortable, responsive and super powerful.
There is a battery life indicator – which although is difficult to see is very useful and as a bit of a novice I appreciate all the safety protections in something which performs and looks like a mech mod.
When the battery indicator light changed to the two colours (20-50% left) I felt the power weaken slightly. With a fully charged battery the vaping power almost blows your head off.
I thought this had a regulated power circuit (keeping the output stable despite battery power) but it is more like using a regulated mod but in by-pass mode. The output does drop as the battery level drops.
The biggest flaw of this whole kit is the battery life. It is quite frankly pretty terrible. As you can see below.
The battery life will depend on what batteries you are using, your vaping habits and also if you use a different tank or coil resistance.
This kit can be quite confusing when it comes to choosing a suitable battery. This is a semi-regulated device which has 0.1ohm coils and apparently can chuck out up to 80W. This means you need a pretty hefty battery to cope with that. In fact Aspire themselves state you need a battery capable of 35A output – which doesn’t exist.
I even asked the wonderful Mooch for his opinion and he was stumped and has contacted Aspire to see what battery they recommend.
Initially I used a Samsung 25R battery in here and got only 2 hours of vaping. This wasn’t my usual heavy vaping either as this blew my lungs out – so it was just regular vaping. The 25R is max 20A continuous output and 2500mAh capacity.
Beyond 1.5 hours the output was pretty weak anyway – which for most people would prompt them to swap for another battery.
After thinking some more we got some Sony VTC5A batteries thinking they might be more suitable being a 25A CDC (Continual Discharge Current) and 2500mah capacity.
With the VTC5A the output seemed slightly weaker – it wasn’t blowing my head off like with the 25R.
However the battery life was slightly better at 3 hours.
- Such a stylish looking kit
- Easy to change the coil for people with rubbish hands like me!
- Easy to use with one hand – and fine for left or right hand use.
- Rugged feeling solid mod
- Beautiful flavour
- Powerful mod
- Suits tank perfectly
- Full of safety features despite looking like a mech mod
- No leaks in normal use (except over-squonking)
- Responsive fire button
- No rattles or wobbles
- Appalling battery life – huge con!
- Matching tank overhangs the mod slightly!
- Hard to see the battery light when vaping – which is when it lights up!
- Over-squonk and the liquid pours out of the top airflow holes
- Can be messy to fill and replace squonk bottle
- When level low in squonk bottle it pushes air into the tank and liquid out of the airflow holes!
- Horrendous battery cap
- Tinted squonk bottle makes it hard to see liquid level
- Can only use designated squonk bottle
Final Review Verdict
When you are vaping on this it is just so perfect you almost forget the flaws it has.
I own a Wismec Luxotic and have paired that up with the Vandy Vape Maze tank. The Luxotic is a very similar device to the Feedlink and the Maze tank uses similar coils and has a similar capacity to the Revvo Boost – but I pick up the Aspire kit in preference now!
The epic performance however comes at a high price. Battery life is awful – really awful. I got around 2 hours of regular but not super heavy vaping from a Samsung 25R. After 1.5 hours the output was so poor it wasn’t really much use to vape on. Changing the battery for a Sony VTC5A improved the battery life slightly but the vaping experience was a bit weaker?
Sadly also there are quite a few design flaws…
I found the battery cap horrific, it’s hard to grip to turn and has about twelvety million threads on it so it takes forever to change the battery. When you couple this with how often you change the battery on this – it’s not good at all.
The squonk bottle is a unique design so sadly swapping it for another brand is not an option. It is too darkly tinted to see the level in all lights and it’s really messy to fill and replace. You end up squeezing it to replace the lid and when putting it in the mod – covering you and all your possessions in e-liquid. Well I am super clumsy though!
The looks of this kit are absolutely stunning but they are spoilt slightly by one silly oversight. If you have a matching tank for a mod and include it in the kit – try and make sure the tank doesn’t overhang on the mod it is designed for – bit silly that.
