I have been using dna's a while but just got my first DNA 250 Boxer mod. I am noticing serious voltage and wattage step down when I want more. I can't find settings to adjust this or find anything that states that this is something which can not be adjusted. If I have an RDA with dual coils at .2ohms and want 120watts, why can't I have it? Can someone point me in the right direction for the settings or info on this? I'd like to curve or get rid of the step down?
THANKS

Are you using it in temperature control mode or wattage/power mode?

I see no reason that you shouldn't be able to achieve your settings providing the board is receiving correct power battery wise. What battery/type powers your mod.
If I have this figured right (looking at the data sheet/output power) you should be able to hit around 175 watts with that build.

Well it's a Boxer v2 DNA 167 with the DNA 250 board. I just got it in a trade/cash deal and the guy left 2 LG HE4's in it. I don't know how old they are or how many cycles they have had so I am charging 2 new Samsung 25R's to try in it. When they are charged I'll see what happens.

Well then my earlier posts were made thinking it was a 3S lipo pack.
Connection from batteries to battery contacts need to be considered as a possible problem perhaps, I'm not familiar with what they used there.

I just don't have good knowledge of what maximum wattage would be on the 2 cell powered version with your build.
But just going off the fact that 167 is 2/3rd of 250 then 2/3rd's of 175 watts is around 115, I'm just not sure if this is how it would work out or not.

I guess I was interested in knowing if there are settings for the step down in the DNA board first of all. If not it may just be the batteries that were in it.

You might check the Max Kanthal Power Limit... could be set lower than 120 watts...
