I did search on forum but I didn't find information I was looking for so...

Where to heck could I buy Evolv USB charger for DNA60?

I do have 1A ones, but those are only charging boards and I need new one with EScribe compatibility.
And I cannot find them anywhere [frown]

Any sugestions? And I am looking for Evolv one because it will go into vaporshark vaporflask and easiest to do it is with original one

$34.15 shipping to Europe for something that costs 5$ is not really good.

I don't know why protovapor has such high shipping cost [frown]

@Rain I guess when you checked right here, the shipping was also high?

Protovapor ships with USPS.  How are items ships from your country?  How much does it cost to ship something from your country to Hawaii, USA?

They have always been ultra expensive to the UK as they only offer the fully insured USPS parcel service, I have looked at buying from them several times and could never get the numbers to work.

there are ways around having to use evolv's charging/data board. it's not an absolute must have. you can use the USB that is already inside the VS Vaporflask. the data pins might not be connected, but i guarantee you they are there. it all depends on your soldering skills and if you want to take the time to do it.

Yes I know about the high cost.... was wondering the costs I asked about to see if there may be a way to get it shipped cheaper by using shipper from his/her country???  Maybe you guys can get more of your vendors to stock some Evolv stuff...and maybe a repair center... Alot of Evolv devices are sold outside the US now days...

8$ tracked and ensured shipment to USA

Or, another example, shipping from modcrate is 15$ for their Silo950 which is about 30 times heavier then usb board and they are using USPS as well

I was taking a quick look to that today, original VF is using two boards, I am guessing one is for charging and another for protection, but I don't see any pins on boards for data transfer. I will try to find out tomorrow which boards are those exactly and how to solve data transfer via them

most likely one is the charging board, and one for the buzzer (does it have a RBP / buzzer?) and the other is the DNA 40 board. you'll have to most likely do what i did and solder small enamel coated wire directly to the USB pinouts.

This is how charger board in VF looks like. To be honest I don't have a clue where to look for USB  pins

one board has the RBP buzzer and one of the two charging IC's. the other board, on top of that board, has the second charging IC and the battery leads soldered to it. you would need to de-solder these two boards from each other and take a look at the USB pin out. you're going to have to do what i did when i decided to keep my VS DNA 40 daughter board. here's a photo of what i had to do to the USB (your USB socket will look similar to mine, our daughter boards are different but that is irrelevant). i will also personally help you through this if you decide to go this route.
