Thank's for the quick reply.
Yes that is what I assumed it was doing but I thought it was just a bug in the DNA60 firmware; apparently it is not.

This sucks since there is no way for you to actually power down the DNA device so that it doesn't lose the cold reading on the atomizer.

the dna's have no on board memory to retain the stored cold resistance value so this is normal behavior of all of them really, just stick the new cell in and then wait about 5 minutes before firing it.... if you can't go 5 minutes without a vape then you should have 2 mods at any given time anyway really [smile]

Waiting 5 minutes for refinement to kick in is obviously not an issue. But the DNA has onboard memory for the profiles right? It should be able to keep value of the atomizer right?

You would think, but its kinda like a computer...anything not saved to a storage device, will be lost if power is disrupted...profiles etc. are written to the eprom & the res readings are on the fly..ram

yeah think rom VS ram... it would be cool if it did remember with a power loss, I agree, but it doesn't and all I'm saying here is this is just normal behavior for the dNA's

Option ROM and it would need a hearing aid battery to save settings like CMOS on computer lol. I would just set the resistance on a profile and it would be saved right?

So I've put the DNA60 in a 3D printed case that I made myself. It's the first iteration so I'm going to make improvements to it. It hasn't been polished yet and the front panel is taped because I haven't had time to place the magnets. Otherwise it works perfectly, it's very light and small.

Not sure if this is the right place to post this since there isn't a DNA60 dedicated 'Report Bug' section.

When I fire the mod, my screen lights up brighter. I've tweaked the settings to all be at 30%, tried to removed 'fade in' time, basically, changed everything, yet when it's fired, the brightness seems to go to max. I let go and it's back to the 30% it's set at.

My other DNA200s do not do this when firing, they stay at the same brightness when fired or idle. Is something different in this chip to where the screen goes to max brightness when fired or some setting I can tweak to get it to stay at a low light level?

Thanks

EDIT: According to the pdf "The screen will be at full brightness while firing." - Guess that solves my question.

yeah same issue with the brightness, I think a firmware upgrade may fix this in due time

Good to know I am not the only one. I've contacted Evolv and they told me it's a possible hardware bug/issue. Hopefully they try and fix soon, it's kind of annoying to get a flash of light everytime.

I just received an Epetite DNA 60 by Lost Vape. There are few problems with the device:
  1. When attaching a new atomizer, board asks new / old question, but reads the resistance much higher than it should be. But after choosing new / old the correct resistance is displayed on the rest screen.
  2. It doesn't sense the temperature control coils and goes to wattage mode (displaying OFF) when firing atomizers with SS 316l coils (the same atomizers working flawlessly on DNA 250).
  3. I also tried temperature controlled vaping with nickel prefabricated heads of Uwell Crown on Epetite and it showed atomizer short, when it worked perfectly on other mods.
  4. Display doesn't show Profile Name on temperature dominant screen when setting up through Escribe instead displaying power dominant screen.
  5. Display doesn't show current draw while charging, when I set it up through Escribe.
Does anyone have an idea what's the problem?

there could be a wiring or 510 problem. manufacturing goof on Lost Vapes part, possibly. what does atomizer analyzer read for resistance?

 do you have "profile name" selected in the screen options tab? it works on my DNA 60 when in temp dom.

just like the DNA 75, the DNA 60 cannot display USB current. only current draw from atomizer to board.

It seems you're right and it's a 510 issue. It has a hard time accepting coils, reading atomizer shorted or check atomizer many times before accepting the atomizer.

Atomizer analyzer shows ohms jumping between 0.75-0.9.

Yes, I have profile name selected and it doesn't show. I presume it's because it never enters temperature sensing mode.

Thanks for the USB current info.

Should I return Epetite to the shop or is there an easy solder job involved so I could attempt a repair?
