Hi all

I tried a few searches here but came up empty. I'm not sure if this is a bug or maybe I'm thinking wrong about this.

In Escribe, under the screen tab, you have 3 fields you can change the display information and another 3 "charging fields". 

The problem I see is that the charging fields aren't working. The middle field for example shows "USB current" and I'm assuming that it will show the the USB current while the board is connected to a charger right? Well that isn't happening. I always only see the left side chosen fields. Never the right side ones?

Maybe this is a future feature, I don't know. If this has been discussed previously, I apologize.

Thumbs up for the DNA 200 [smile]

Regards
Tony

It takes a short time to go into idle after you plug in the USB lead for them to display, I have Pack V, Wh & USB current.

Thanks for the quick reply.

When I plug in my board, after a short time, the screen will turn off... If I click on it, I see the left field displays. Never the charging fields? What do you do to see the charging fields?

Thx

Tony

Charging Brightness must not be 0% you need to change it to say 75%.

HAH

That was it !!!

Thank you. I set charging brightness to 30% and it is showing the right side fields. Great.

I hope the oled screen won't wear out prematurely because of this though... It's going to be lit up the whole night this way.

cheers

I keep forgetting about the brightness as I changed it the first day, @John & @Brandon maybe an idea to default to > 0% as it keeps coming up.

Yeah, a default of 35% is probably a good idea.  Would certainly cut down on the helpdesk emails [wink]

Yeah, except the "my DNA 200 never turns off" helpdesk emails...

I left my v200 on a charger all night last night with the charge screen at 30%. After it fully charged, the screen stayed on all night and brought the charge to 94%. Any way to shut the board down after charging to 100%? Maybe a user defined delay?

It should have started charging again if it was still connected to USB. Do you have some sort of unusual battery curve?

That's what I thought. The only change I made was the wh was set at default and I changed it to 10.55.

Oh. Well, if you change the battery capacity on the fly you'll confuse the poor thing. Give it a charge and discharge cycle to sort itself out, and see if it still is doing it.

To clarify, I made the changes when I first got it last week (Thursday?) since it looked like no updates were applied to the board and all the settings were as if it was a brand new board. I've been vaping it and the screen issue came up. While I was replacing the screen I put the battery on a lipo charger (Imax B6). I buttoned everything up and vaped until it was about 20% and charged it overnight. I have Wh set on my charging screen and it showed up properly. 

I'll give it a few more cycles to see how it goes. I might just set the charging screen to 0% to see if that helps. 

I LOVE how I can customize this board and test different things. Thanks for giving us (the vaping community) such an awesome board!

If you plug it into a PC near the end of charge, what does it show for voltage and current? Is it charging to 100% and then slowly falling from there, or is it never getting to 100%

And, just so we're not chasing our tails, you have the battery set to "Maximize Puffs" rather than "Maximize Recharges" correct?

Because Maximize Recharges shouldn't get to 100%
