I could quite easily make this Wotofo Dyadic review a direct comparison to another well known Dual 18650 Squonk Mod. But no! I refuse to mention any other Dual 18650 Squonk mod in this review. Its on the tip of my tongue, but I won’t say it!
So Wotofo, who generally aren’t best known for making some cracking RBA’s, have teamed up with Mr Tony B. The man responsible for the Vandy Vape Pulse line, some nice looking Artery Products, and recently the very smart Vandy Vape Swell Kit, which I really enjoyed and gave a strong 8 out of 10.
For those wondering what Dyadic means, it’s simply a group of two..
What Can We Expect From The Dyadic by Wotofo?
If it wasn’t for the fact a ‘Top-filling’ squonk mod has already been designed, manufactured and released, the Dyadic right now would be seen as an extremely innovative device! A side-filling squonker, with a nice colourful screen and removable panels.
But there are a lot of nice features to this device, along with a couple of negatives.
So let’s Crack on and see what the Wotofo Dyadic is all about…

Design and Build Quality
I received the Black version of the Dyadic, which is more of a Matt black than a gloss.
The Dyadic’s 510 connection is located to one end of the top of the mod, and you can fit up to a 25mm Diameter RDA before you notice any overhang. There is a little spring to the 510 connection, however it is a little stiff when you first use it.
The Front of the Device
Well, the front of the device, is actually really on the side. With a big chunky fire button at the top which has the same smooth feel that the 2 panels have, it’s a little firm to press, but clicks nicely.
Below that is a fairly large 0.96inch colour screen, which is nice, clear and bright. It doesn’t give much information, but then this device is pretty simple with regards to options so it does what it needs to do.
As the bottom is your adjustment buttons and the USB port below.
Micro USB Port:
The Micro USB port located at the bottom of the ‘Face’ of the mod is ideally to only be used for firmware upgrades, however you can use it for charging if you get desperate. But I don’t personally recommend it. Always best to use an external charger such as the Golisi S6.
The Dyadic has 2 removable panels, which click quite nicely onto the device itself thanks to its strong magnets, once you line them up right, and they’re coated in something which makes them nice and smooth.
One panel will expose the squonk bottle and filling port, the other panel houses the battery compartment.
Clearly marked Positive and Negative and with some lovely self adjusting pins, it’s simple enough to fit your batteries, and the included battery ribbon makes it a lot easier to remove the batteries.
How long the ribbon will last before snapping off is something I always worry about however.
Hidden behind one of the removable panels is the 8.5mm Squonk bottle, its nice and squidgy but could possibly do with being a little firmer – if that makes sense.
The 2 bottles included in the kit are 2 different shades, one is darker than the other. And unless you’re using a very dark liquid, you’re really not going to see your e-liquid level.
Which is a shame, so I generally made use of the spare bottle, which is a lighter shade and you can see your liquid level a little better.
Of course you can take the bottle apart and on the ‘top side’ of the bottle, is a little rubber bung which you can pull out, but not remove – and fill the bottle.
The Mod – Overall:
It’s a fairly nicely planned out mod, surprisingly small for a dual 18650 squonk mod when you take into consideration it contains 2 x 18650 batteries, an 8.5ml bottle and a large colour screen. Impressive!
In The Hand
Is it possible this mod isn’t for left handed vapers? Because I’ll be honest, as I sit here typing, with my right hand in charge of the mouse, and my left hand in charge of vaping, I’m struggling to use the Dyadic with my left hand.
Purely because in order to fire the device, you need to use your thumb – leaving your fingers on the wrong end of the mod to squonk! Annoying.
Regardless of this minor, yet annoying problem, the Wotofo Dyadic is super, super comfortable to hold. Its perfectly curved at each end, and it feels nice and comfortable.
Of course its better in the right hand as your fingers are perfectly placed for squonking.
Being so compact for a 200w squonk mod I’m massively impressed with how the Dyadic feels in the hand and its not really that heavy.
Filling The Squonk Bottle.
- Remove the side panel
- Open the rubber bung
- Fill with desired e-liquid
- Re-fit rubber bung and panel
Simple right? In essence it’s simple enough, and in practice, generally it’s easy too.
However ask yourself, how many times do you ever fill any type of bottle, from the side?
A number of times when filling this mod, I’ve had major leakage, and not from overfilling – but if you don’t get that fill angle right, it squirts back out at you. Similar to when filling your car with fuel. If you don’t get that angle right, the petrol pump clicks shut and you have to try again.
It’s not exactly painstaking, but it can be a little annoying. So as much as its a new way to fill a squonk bottle, in practice its just not as convenient and simple as… another Squonker which is available…
The Dyadic squonks beautifully and pulls the e-liquid back as well as I would expect so I have no concerns there.
How Does the Wotofo Dyadic Kit perform?
The Front screen shows:
- Coil Resistance
- A and B Battery Capacity
- Mode Setting (Standard, Powerful, Powerful+)
Theres a small number of button sequences to remember to operate this device:
- 5 clicks of the fire button will turn the device on and off.
- Press Fire Button and + button will change from Standard, Powerful and Powerful+ modes.
- Press + and – buttons to lock/unlock all buttons
Standard Mode (Green)
Simply put, when you press the fire button, the device will fire to your desired wattage setting
Powerful Mode (Orange)
This is the same as Standard mode, however the device will put an additional 10w output through the coil for the first 2 seconds which may help with ramp up times
Powerful+ Mode (Red)
As above, but this time, you get an extra 15watts of power for the first 2 seconds.
Is the mode options noticeable? In my time with the Dyadic, the difference is minimal but there is certainly a difference between Standard and Powerful+
Other than that, there is no other menu options to worry about. Extremely simple.
The battery life is comparable to any other Dual 18650 mod I’ve used. Vaping at around 75-80w you get a good days battery life out of the Dyadic, considering the full colour screen thats pretty good.
I have no major concerns over the durability of this device. It’s highly probable the panels are going to take a beating and you may consider picking up a spare set of panels long term. Thats assuming that you’ll be able to pick up the panels on their own.
- Extremely comfortable
- Very compact for a dual 18650 Squonk
- Bright, Clear Screen
- Super Simple to operate
- Hits hard in Powerful+ Mode
- Removable panels can be a little fiddly
- Side-fill bottle isn’t easy to fill at times
- Cant see e-liquid level with dark bottle
- Lack of functions may be a con to some?
- Not as simple to use in your left hand
- One-ended 510 limits RDA Diameter
Final Review Verdict
I cant hold it in anymore! Sorry.
Is it as good as The Dovpo Topside Dual? Ive said it! Happy now.
Ergonomically its better – possibly the most comfortable mod I’ve ever used. Especially considering the 2 batteries and 8.5ml bottle inside. The panels are nice and smooth and it just feels right in the hand.
And the right hand is where it works best, which is a shame because flipping it onto your left hand causes minor operation issues.
Moving on to the side-fill system. It works just fine, but its just not as simple and convenient as The Dovpo TopSide system.
