either way preheat, no preheat, tc or non tc, watts are watts. looks like at 55 watts you got some bad battery sag. what mod is this? what type of battery is this? 26650's are perform very poorly for vaping purposes. especially in the 50 watt and up range. if you're not familiar with battery mooch, i would look at his chart for vaping approved 26650 and 18650 batts. battery tabs/connections also play a role on how well a battery will perform when demands from it are high. make sure you have some good quality batteries to supply power to your dna 75. i'll post a link to suggested batteries.[IMG]

I didn't know something like this even existed, I can easily see a new vaper getting one of these to blow some clouds.
I would avoid this battery like as if it were the plague. In a regulated mod it wouldn't be all that dangerous but in a mechanical it has the makings of an accident looking for a place to happen.

Phil Busardo showed how Aspire lithium batteries are made. They bake their batteries in an oven for two months weeding out the dangerous ones.

I for sure rushed to judgement on my earlier post, been digging online some. It seems to be one of the more powerful 18650's going. But there's controversy as to whether it's an ICR or a hybrid. I shall dig some more.

IIRC they say they are using exactly the same chemistries as they do for their LiPos in the video, but it is very short on detail in that respect.  It may just be terminology and by LiPo they just mean batteries not in a metal tube, who knows.

i'm wondering with the new vt75 and dx75, if there is anodizing on the battery thread caps. that could cause a premature 'weak battery' message. i also have no idea what gauge battery wire they are using in these mods nor how or if they are achieving a solid ground connection from battery to board. 

if it's any consolation, i hear evolv is working on a dna 75 firmware update to make the 'weak battery' message less eager to appear on the screen.

that would be nice.  Hipe it comes soon because getting this message at 70% sucks and not being able to vape at 50% makes this a waste of money.  IMO

Hi! I'm a new user here. For almost 3 weeks using vt75 not even a single moment i had any weak battery message. Using some old LG HE4 gives no issue either since i vape at 20-25w set the preheat at medium punch not more than 2 secs. It depends on the battery amp and the calculation to make sure when using preheat the wattage doesn't sag the battery amp  too much. And also got my 26650 AWT 4500mah battery inside my dna 75 right now.. work like a charm, no issue either.

To Evolv,
Why didn't you build the 75 board capable of entering your battery MAH to get the correct watt hours? Or, am I missing something somewhere?

The DNA75 doesn't use mah for measuring battery capacity from what I understand. So even if Evolv added it to EScribe, it would be meaningless.
