    This is an exchanged one i sent to Evolv back at the end of November...
    I've read a few others have had this problem too...
    However my battery indicator has just moved a little down....
    I'll keep an eye out for when it finally dies with the battery see what's what..

    There's no way I want to start taking this apart again....
    Maybe send the whole thing to Evolv and let them sort it...lol..they'll love seeing how I did this mod up....

    No that ones is in my ZNA and works just fine..
    This was from Bargain Vapor, it was one of the first batches but I had to send it back to Evolv last November as it was locked on 5 clicks locked...I got it back mid December and it's been waiting to go into this zero...

    I did read at one point they'd actually take in the mod and do the stuff for you..
    I'll shoot them an e mail tomorrow...

    Sorry to hear that -V-, now I understand why you said you still like the rDNA 30.

    I do think it will be easy to take it out again and switch it if you have another one laying around, but I understand how you feel after all the hard work!

    I still find it great that you do these projects and love reading about them!

    Keep on doing them!

    Yes, I was hoping once I had tightened down those 2 grub screws this afternoon that was that...
    I've just shot off the e mail to Evolv , i actually just continued the old e mail we had from before...

    I'll see what they say, I gave them a few options....
    Anyway, I can still use it so that's a good thing...

    Kinda good news, the battery level dropped a little more...
    Still nothing like it should be imho, I'll see what level it is when the battery goes to the 'check battery' part...which means time to replace....

    Midland Vaping FB group. I joined a while back looking to get on a pre-order for the VF40. I've since left because they are all vape snobs:D

    Just as my day isn't getting any better..
    I thought i'd build upon the Subtank deck a nice temp coil

    Here it is

    Then hit the fire

    button to vape it and it vapes really nice, although this happens

    The good news if it still vapes even though the screen is like that
    The better news is it only does it when in temp mode, if I use normal kanthal coils it's fine...

    E mail sent to Evolv...
    What a fooker....

    :not good:

    I was gonna say yesterday your board only needs to scramble in temp mode to have the triple whammy of Evolv defects.

    Bummer.

    When I read about the battery gauge not registering (like on my VF), I wondered about this...its one of the reasons I haven't messed with temp control coils yet since it's my only DNA40 device.

    Sorry to hear about this, V. Are you going to send the entire mod back? They might be able to do something with the USB port while it's in...

    Nice job on the build...really enjoyed reading the thread. But I'm also glad I have no desires in this direction!

    The vape quality with the subtank desk and nickel was really nice though...
