That's true, all the love seems to be going toward mechanical mods with very low resistance coils. I still like my VV boxes though. Have no intention of going the unregulated route. I have zero tolerance for battery fade.
I understand why they're ~more~ expensive since the production numbers are low and there's a lot of machine work involved, but if they're charging really high prices, that's just taking advantage of the high demand for them.People are doing crazy stuff like running dual coils for resistances of like a third of an Ohm. I've played with the sub-ohm coils and I actually get better performance with my VV using the same setup with an extra turn or two for a higher resistance which allows a higher voltage. With a good ultra low impedance battery (like the Sony US18650VTC3) in a mechanical running a sub-ohm coil, you get into into power levels upwards of 20 Watts and even into the 30's with the dual coils. Having a VV mod capable of 36 Watts output, I can say there's a limit to how much power a person can comfortably vape with. It ~is~ possible to get too much vapor. With those extreme power levels I suppose it would be okay if you vape very sparingly, but the human lungs can only tolerate so much vapor and if I use power levels like that regularly, it makes my throat and lungs sore. Though I can build a coil(s) that can run those power levels no problem, the flavor is fine and there's no burnt taste.
It's been a while since i last posted here. Hey, craig and dave! got same problem. Broke the oled. Now, I'm Trying to find a replacement here locally. Another prob is i dont have the exact part# anyone?
What is the part number for those little black buttons?
They look like a standard tactile switch. You can get them at any electronic parts distributor.The button tops come in different heights.
hi,saw your location/....where did you buy yours???A local online vape shop here in ph vapetime.net.
Welcome back poorboy. The first thing I would do is contact Evolve for a replacement. So far I haven't heard of a single person who was denied a replacement.
Thanks dave! It didn't came from evolve directly just got from a local vapeshop here in PH, and I'm not sure if they will replace it like evolve does. Is this the one? http://www.newark.com/densitron/dd-9616be-3a/display-oled-blu-96x16/dp/83R9566 like the one you used.
I see. I'll ask them. Thanks again dave.Zeus, I got it from www.vapetime.net
Hello guys,Im from Malaysia. Plan to build one small mods of DNA20. Somewhere i have notice that the DNA20 recomendded to use a 7A battery which is a 700mah battery if i am not mistaken.I try to build a really small mod on my hand(asian hand thou-their really small huh?). I plan to use a 14500 batteries with 750mah/700mah. But how long it will last since its only a small capacity...im afraid that using 14500 700mah would not last for an hour?

Thank you for a very good explanation on this Breakhru and CraigHB..this helps me a lot...i decide to take the turnigy 1200mah 15c as mention....thanks again and really appreciated... here is my prototype without the DNA20 with a single 14500
What is the "DNA30"?I'm calling it the DNA30 because he confirmed the specs. I was never given an actual name of the board. The new board is sitting in a new module that will work in conjunction with a certain mod "system". I'm being vague for a reason. I promised I wouldn't reveal what mod maker-- for now. The board looks VERY similar to the DNA20. At first glance you might think it is the DNA20, and many did, because it was shown off at VaperCon under everyone's nose.It was slated to be released on December 27th. I asked him to confirm it, and he only said, "there will be nothing before Christmas." Sounds about right?
I was thinking maybe they are using the dna to power an okr, he says it needs external components and I immediately thought that. Just joshin' in my own brain with lil knowledge about it all.. Like breaks okr mod --wonder if this isnt breaks mod lol woot
Certainly do-able if they increased the PCB size a bit, but that becomes a length issue for an 18650 tube. That's what the DNA20 is designed for, though plenty of people make box mods with them.
I read that you have to optimize each and every one you build, so I understand why its so badarse and not made for a factory production but close is good too.
Hi everyone! Another guy here from the Phil wanting to venture out into regulated mods. Mechs are ok but I know regulated mods are better.Hope all is well. Cheers!
Hi simon and welcome to the forum
Studiovape, that is one sexy mod! What are the switch buttons made of and how do you hold them into the case?
Been a while but I did finish my steampunk Dna20 here's a link to the pictures if anyone is interested http://forums.aussievapers.com/modding-technical/21854-steampunk-dna20-bottom-feeder-studiovape.html
