The Dovpo Topside is a squonk kit that has been designed for advanced users. Powered by either a 18650 vape battery or a 21700 vape battery (both sold separately) it's capable of a 90W maximum output. It features a hollow 510 connection and is designed for use with squonk compatible RDAs and other rebuildables.
A combination of Zinc Alloy and Stainless Steel make the Topside a durable piece of hardware, while the ergonomic design allows it to fit comfortably in the hand. A large firing button is located at the top of the device, below which you'll find the 0.96 Inch OLED screen that clearly displays information about output and battery.
Packaged separately are two bottle cartridges that can fit into the Topside, allowing it to act as a squonk device. When fitted correctly, eliquid will travel from the bottle to your rebuildable atomiser when squeezed. There's no need to disassemble the device to refill the bottle, simply remove the top cap to reveal two juice ports.
A number of advanced modes allow you to customise the performance of the Topside to your liking. Variable Wattage Mode allows you to directly increase and decrease power output up to 90W, meaning you can match power to the resistance of your coils while finding the sweet spot between cloud and flavour production.
Temperature Control Mode lets you programme a wattage output and a max temperature your coil can reach before the device will stop firing. This essentially means you can programme your perfect vape, be that a long cool inhale or a short powerful one. Please note only certain coil wire like Stainless Steel, Titanium and Nickel can be used in this mode.
Bypass Mode allows the Topside to act like an unregulated device. In this mode it will pull the maximum power from your batteries, with power output based on the resistance of your coils and condition of your battery. This mode is recommended only for advanced users with a thorough understanding of Ohm's Law.
Important Information about Sub Ohm Vaping:
This device is designed for sub-ohm vaping. It requires more vaping experience to use safely, and extra care should be taken when using a sub ohm tank. Sub Ohm coils will only work on a mod capable of firing sub ohm atomisers, and Ni200 coils will only work on devices capable of Temperature Control. Please ensure that your batteries can handle the extra power requirements and that your mod can handle the amps.
We also advise not to use any e-liquid with more than 6mg of nicotine, as your vapour may taste harsh. Sub ohm vaping produces a bigger throat hit than standard coils, and extra care should be taken.

Got this for Christmas, specifically to pair with the Profile. I've got a couple of Pulse boxes for everyday use (nylon construction, hard to scratch up), but wanted something nicer for home and thought this could be it. And it is! Looks and feels really high end, but even better, it works brilliantly. Too many pros to list, but the main ones for me are - 10ml capacity, no mess filling, instant firing, simple functionality and solid construction. Been using 30T batteries in it, and easily get a day out of it using the Profile at around 50/55W.

Ever since making the leap to rebuildables with the excellent recurve i have been on the lookout for a squonk mod - owing to the recurves relatively small juice wells requiring constant dripping - but had been put off by the apparent faff that other mods required to top up.
Having had the dovpo for just about a month i can find virtually no faults with it. The top fill mechanism is a joy and makes re-filling on the go simple and with no leaking. Make no mistake this is a hefty bit of kit, but it is so well built and solid that this is a happy compromise and despite the weight it is comfortable to hold and use. so far there is not a scratch on this despite being in pocket with keys etc most of the day.
If I have any gripe it is that, being a single battery mod, i have to change batteries at least once a day. That said this is probably more a result of the combination of 28650 batteries and my fairly heavy use.

This is best mod I have owned
Solid mod well built excellent if you have just made a jump to RDA’s and build you own coils
If you do want to run on temperature control you do have to download the firmware
This mod and the dead rabbit RDA excellent combo together and a 10ml sqounk bottle can’t beat it
0.6 coil on 40w with a 21700 battery last me all day

I bought this mod, primarily to get even more benefit from my Wotofo Profile RDA. (see my review) And I'm so glad I did.
The Profile works great in non-squonk mode but is outstanding on the Topside in squonk mode.
After much research, I chose the Topside for a number of reasons - the huge 10ml squonk bottle, easy no mess top fill design, safe (regulated), 21700/20700/18650 options, very simple to use, great screen, quality construction, spare squonk bottle provided & upgradeable if you want more mech style advanced options.
No wonder that all the reviews I read before purchase were positive. The Topside/Profile combo has, arguably for the first time, made squonking really easy & convenient for anyone,
Having vaped for many years using stock coils, I've never fancied the building/wicking processes required by an RDA. Now though it's really easy and the flavour & clouds available are a real revelation.
On top of that are the cost savings. A stock coil might last a couple of weeks so you're looking at around £80 a year. Even with the pre-built mesh & cotton for the Profile RDA, I still reckon I'll save around £60.
Probably just as well as I'll be using more juice!!
Dovpo have set the standard for squonk mods with this device & I'd say it's best in class.
