Leaving them at the defaults will put it functionality on a par with other boards using swappable batteries, setting will get you a little more accuracy than other mods, not setting will cost you zero compared to other boards it all still works fine.  The curve is just to better match different models of battery, none should be far from the default curve and they would vary with the age of the battery and load.   Batteries can be tracked more accurately if they are fixed, but with removable batteries the board has no heuristics and has to go by a voltage to percent map, that's just life.

@asmodeous evolv is open to suggestions. post your idea in the feature request thread. i think a voltage based battery meter with sag would be a nice option for the DNA 75 and 60, especially. TBH, i find i never take the cells out of any of my DNA 133/167/200's. if the cells get low, i just plug in the USB to charge and rotate to a different mod. if i'm going out, i make sure the mod's charged or take a mod that i know will last the duration of...whatever.

Well I guess I at least have my original question answered. I gather there is no setting for the end user to curve or turn off the step down on the DNA's. [nono]

"turn off the step down"? what do you mean. i don't understand your question.

you either have poor/rewrapped/fake cells or a connection issue, or both. there is no option in EScribe to let the cells drain dangerously low so you can avoid the "weak battery" or "check battery" messages, sorry.

You would have to read my first post in this thread. The reason I started it was to try and find an answer to my question about whether or not I can adjust a setting in Escribe to control how the step down function works.

I think what you are asking is can you set it to have step-up as well, no the physical circuit is step-down only and that allows it to operate with 97% efficiency. It is a bit like asking if you can change your motorbike to a car by changing a setting, the hardware is too differient.

I'm not sure what wanting less interruption in my vaping has to do with 97% efficiency. If you mean it does well at doing what it was designed to do then I got ya. I'm not sure you know what I mean when I say I want to change the step down settings. I just want it to be less aggressive. If I have my device set at 120W with a .2ohm dual coil setup in my RDA, THAT is where I want it. If my batteries go down to 60% charge remaining and the DNA board changes automatically when I hit the fire button so that I only get say 87W's at maybe 3.78volts damn it that's not what I want.

If you want to be less aggressive lower the watts, unless you know a way around the first law of thermodynamics or get better batteries that's all that is possible, if I understand your question and I'm not positive I do.

I'm thinking the huge battery sag you are seeing won't let you achieve the 120 watts you want all the time...if the battery can't supply the 120 watts desired as the battery charge is reduced then yes you will achieve lower wattage only.   Is that what you are getting at?

Yes but at least it improved when I put a new pair of batts in. Part of it is due to the older batts and partly because of the board automatically taking over as it is designed to do with batteries that are not as strong/ holding enough charge. I got a reply from a tech at Evolv finally. It seems there is no way to change the step down on the board which is what I have been asking about all along?

I'm not sure what you mean The only power limit I find is in this pic. Besides I am running with 2 18650's.

just use common sense, if the cells are too weak to provide the power you're asking for, it's not wise to push them to the point where they become damaged or YOU become damaged. play it safe, use good quality cells that are capable of delivering the power you need. do that, and the DNA will happily pump out the watts you desire, accordingly. don't, and the DNA protects you......

Also, unless I missed it you never mentioned if you were also getting a "weak battery" message..... From the Datasheet it says:

Weak Battery: The battery needs to be charged, or a higher rate battery needs to be used. If this happens, the DNA 250 will continue to fire the atomizer, but will not be able to provide the desired wattage. The Weak Battery message will continue to flash for a few seconds after the end of puff.

Actually, the strange thing is the only error message I saw was the screen on the mod telling me the atomizer resistance was too high. I think it was "resistance too high". But as I stated before, it is alot better with the new batts. Just still get the step down with the battery drain.
