So, now that the DNA chip is popularly used with removable batteries, maybe it's possible to make an update that doesn't delete the coil if you swap out a cell? It just seems weird to me that the Joyetech chip does this particular thing better than the DNA75 chip. (although the JT chips have problems with coil erasing. They downright cannot be used with TC unless you mod them to have manual coil delete. So it's not objectively better than the DNA in any case, except the one where it remembers non-locked coils without a battery)

Other than that, I can always charge it with USB when close to a PC, but sadly in many cases you do not have a USB slot around you and you have to swap cells on the run.

Yes it is pretty annoying to wait for your coils to cool down if it wasn't resistance locked beforehand. Although I have been known to set my temperature about 200ºF lower and adjust from there if I don't want to wait. Of course the temperature will change whenever the coils cools down and then the temperature will be too cool.

That was something I noticed last night, that the coil's reading actually corrected itself after I left the device down for 20-30 minutes. That was pretty cool to see. [smile] 

I can live with this issue, definitely. The compromises I had to do with some of my cheaper devices are much more annoying. 

Regardless, I would suggest to the Evolv team to add this little functionality, if possible - for the chip to remember coils after swapping batteries, even if the coils were not locked beforehand. This little change would go a LONG way with any DNA user that has external batteries. [smile]
