Great mod, crap 510. My RX200 also died on me because of this. Every manufacturer seems to skimp on the 510s. I totally don't understand it.

I can rewire fire, but wiring up the entire DNA200 has lead me to frying two boards. I'm not doing it again.


I hear you. I'm not the greatest solderer either. However, the right tools make all the difference. The contacts on the PCB are pretty small. You need a BGA rework station, some flux paste and some solder paste. Put a bit of flux paste on the tab, put some solder paste on the tab, put some solder on the bit then apply and you should get a first time, clean solder. 

My best mod is unquestionably the one I built myself. It's a boxer mod. A Fat Daddy V4 makes all the difference. It's light, has 18650s that I can change, and the form factor is fabulous. If you don't want to build it yourself, you can buy it pre-made. Ok, so it's overpriced. But I guarantee you'll be happy. Just suggest not dropping it, being 3D printed it's likely to break if dropped on a tiled floor.

HOWEVER, this is limited to 133W because it only has 2x 18650s. The only mod I am aware of with 3x 18650 is the Reuleaux. Your criteria are too stringent - there really is nothing out there that will satisfy your entire wish list.

Nowhere. i asked Joyetech to sell me one. They refused - even after I gave them the option of selling me one or RMA.

IMHO the Hotfire Hero ascetically basic beautiful USA built mod spendy but oh well.
Built like a tank and light weight as well.
Battery life not bad if your an average to above average vaporer.
Upgradeable to 1300mah as well but didn't need it yet.

I actually ended up with both the SMY SDNA200 (Updated Ver) and the BiGGeR DNA I replaced the 510 on. I also have a custom DNA that has a HUGE 6,200mah 20C Lipo in it that I absolutely love but the thing is massive. That new Player Mod looks baller. Swaps out with a 1,100mah Lipo and a dual 18650 133 sled. You can even buy spare lipos for it.
