The Dead Rabbit SQ RDA by Hellvape

The Hellvape Dead Rabbit SQ RDA is a new single coil flavour based RDA.

dr sq viewsThe Dead Rabbit range have been a massive success and the Original Dead Rabbit RDA scored a huge 4.9 out of 5 here with our reviewer Neil!

The Dead Rabbit came first in the Ecig Click awards for the best RDA too!!

The range were a design collaboration between Hellvape and the vaping reviewer Heathen.

This new DR is the brainchild of the same collaboration. A video by Heathen below shows him introducing the SQ version.

The thought behind this SQ RDA is this is designed to be a single coil RDA and mainly for Squonking. However a standard 510 connector pin is included so you can still use this as a dripper.

This is a 22mm diameter – the reasoning to making this smaller than the original 24mm DR is to make the flavour stronger and to allow this to be compatible for DTL and MTL vapers.  Also the smaller tank according to Heathen will be cheaper to allow everyone to be involved.

dr sq componentsHeathen says the Dead Rabbit SQ RDA is almost a Mark 2 Dead Rabbit, in other words he modified a few things he wishes he had changed on the original. For instance the barrel will lock so you can unscrew this from a mod without the top cap just spinning.

Another little design change is the actual Dead Rabbit logo – note the squonk tube sticking out the top of his head haha!

However if you own the original version – I am not sure what the SQ can offer you that you don’t already have.

If you don’t own a Dead Rabbit this could be the one for you!

My name is Michelle - I am 45 and an engineer and Technical Author by trade. I started vaping many years ago in the days of Tornado tanks, Ego batteries and Variable Voltage. My journey in vaping began again a few years ago and have started to move up in the shiny shiny gadget department and love vaping! I have finally stopped smoking as of June 2019 and that is all thanks to vaping! 20mg Nicotine Salts are my hero! Oh and I am partial to a nice pod mod!


  1. I just purchased the dead rabbit sq tonight and I’m confident that this is my absolute favorite rda and squank tank I had the captain 316 or something and it was pretty great but this is more my style, the way that this tank is built it has all the little key qualities in mind it doesn’t leak(I’m a heavy squanker) its airflow is perfect, theres no hot juice splash..all in all this is the best tank out in my opinion. F.Y.I I’m set up on the vandyvape impulse.BAM!!!
