thats amazing! where did you get that temp gauge?

im currently making a wooden DNA30 box mod and was wondering about battery ventilation holes and whether i need them. Is this the reason you have a big hole in the enclosure?

The temp gauge is made from two sections of brass pipe one slid over the other annealed and peened over with a hammer. Gauge dial face was designed and printed and cut out with a compass cutter, needle is from the second hand of a watch, glass is lexan cut with compass cutter, and guts/bimetallic coil are from a $2 plastic thermometer. time consuming.
The hole in the enclosure is to enable sqonking as it is a bottom feeder, but it would serve as a venting hole I suppose.
my box mods are never hemetically sealed as such, so even without the hole to squeeze the bottle through they would be unlikedly to explode  :D

Hi  breakstuff, pleased you like it. I used an  18350 battery, I wanted to keep the mod small, and have made it so the bottom plate is quickly removed to change the battery, it unscrews with the aid of a coin. See photo.

Hi mamu  it's called a TVS20. I find the 18350 battery is fine for my use, I only use it with low settings ie 1.8 to 2.0 ohm coil set at 8.0 to 9.0 watts with 18mg tobacco . Two batteries  gives me a days vaping.

Thanks for your  kind complements. My idea of publishing these mods is to show what can be done in the home workshop, with the hope of encouraging other vapers to have a go at mod making.
      Here are some pictures of another small DNA 20 mod I made. The box is made from some reclaimed mahogany and the white parts are reclaimed ivory with brass inserts. It has a 14500 800 mAH battery which with my preferred low settings works fine. I find this mod good for using when out and about with it being so small,and changing the battery only takes a few seconds using a coin to unscrew the bottom cap. The last photo shows two vent holes and a battery rattle adjusting screw in the slot of the bottom cap.

Hi  I have made a SS button and bezel which fits over the tactile firing switch, a lot better to use with this fitted. See photo.

Do you mind if I ask what the overall dimension are? 14500? It almost appears there'd be enough room for 18490? Yes/No?

Hi  littlefeather, Pleased you like the mod. The size is -  length 72mm x 22 mm wide  x  33mm deep. If you take a look at the pic above of it you will see I have fitted a tube to take the battery, so it will not take a battery of any other size. I did make another one with a 1200mAH round lipo battery and USB charger which are the same dimensions only the length is 90mm. Here is a pic of it . Hope this helps .

Yup! I see that now. I'm thinking about the overall dimensions of the DNA20/30 and your box @ 72mm overall height and being only 33m deep, did you have to make a pretty radical bend in the OLED ribbon to get that fit?

Very nice! That's some tight work! BTW I seem to remember something similar I saw on a video some time ago. Looked to have very similar aesthetic. The owner wasn't the maker and was just plain chuffed.  By chance was that some of your work? :yes"

Hi I was going to suggest you send it back to Evolv, they repair their DNA 20 quite cheaply, but  I don't think your  DNA 20 was made by Evolv, unless they have changed their layout of the board. Here is a pic of genuine one of mine for you to compare.

The quality of the parts used on your board is not as good as the DNA board pictured below.  I don't think the design would have changed that radically from one revision to another.  Where did you get your board?

In any case, that U6 part is a power MOSFET.  If you can get a number off one that isn't burned up, you could replace it.  That part is burning out due to overload which should not be happening under any conditions if the board is operating the way it should.

After reading about all the great DIY mods here, I finally got around to making one,

The eggplant is a compact DIY evolv DNA20D based 18650 battery mod, built out of carbon fiber / epoxy and aluminum

Dimensions : 74 * 44 * 22 mm ( h: 2 15/16? w: 1 3/4? d: 7/8? )

If you want to make your own DIY eggplant mod I've posted a how-to, pictures, the bill of materials, usefull DIY mod making guides I used, etc. here :

http://eggplantmod.wordpress.com/

Have fun :)

ps : Is there a way to embed videos in forum posts, and how can I create a topic in the modding forum ? thanks :)
