if you can solder a board you could come off a dripper connection to a 40 watt light bulb, I think I read 40 watt being a good discharge rate

Just some questions I have.  Thanks


I was using mine for about a week before I connected it to a computer, they work great as is, no worries,
just buy your board from an evolve approved supplier.......

If people who do the reviews of these products on youtube would take the time to see how poorly these devices are setup from the factory and include that info in the review, the manufacturers would fix the problem expediently. If you really want to see a change, post a comment in a reviewers youtube of all the info he/she left out. If the owners of the products post solid info left out by the reviewer, the reviewers will change. Sample: I have an Hcigar VT200. I ran the Battery Analyzer and fond out it only has a 1000mah battery in it and the Case Analyzer info was never set up from the factory either. Why didn't you include that info in your review? I gave a thumbs down for this review and that's why. Please include this basic info in your future reviews.

Has the products performance changed greatly since you connected it to a computer and put all things right?
Personly i have never bought a mod i have only built my own, and with the dna 200 to be quite honest, i did set the battery peramerterd to what escribe calculated and only droped the boost punch wattage a bit, other than that just geeked around a bit but overall it performed perfectly straight off the work bench. But using ni200..to add..
i know exactly what you mean about some youtube reviewers.. they must all have alzhiemers, it takes them half hour to get the box open, laughable.. some just like to hear the sound of their own voice, look like theyve had their hair done specialy, look like theyre wearing make up turned their spare room into a studio and spent a fortune on broardcasting equipment..living a little fantasy..shame they dont review themselves. Try the vapin bogun, hes ok for about five minutes.. or les picken..

Well davemaxx, I have an Hcigar VT200.  Authorized vendor I suppose, since Evolv sold them their boards.  My mod was not set up at all.  Had to test it myself and set it up.

Hello,

I hope you don't mind me resurrecting an old thread, but I thought it was the most appropriate. I have some questions about the Kanthal test.

1. Won't the wire be annealled from the heat and collapse down, possibly damaging everything around it? I guess not, since many people had run the test, but in which cases could it happen? What gauge and length would be the safest? I have max 26 AWG. I think that there are two opposing situations here - the wire would need to be longer for cooling, but the danger of collapsing is greater with longer wire.
 
2. Also, wouldn't longer wire have too much resistance? What is the acceptable resistance range?

3. Would twisted wire help or not?

4. Please remind me what was the recommended starting battery level, I read it somewhere, but I don't know if it was for this test. And I forgot what it was.

Thank you

It depends on the power level, but with a 75 I get away with 4 parallel loops of 0.5 mm about the radius of a tennis ball, they don't get too hot the heat sinking back into the case is more an issue and I use an old computer fan that keeps the case & battery cool but it is not essential.  This is what I used to do custom battery test, I just use a single 3" fan now.

A long time has passed and I've still not done the test. Probably because I mostly use the SMY DNA 75, and that requires frequent battery changes, and I have different types, so I think it would be pointless.

Or not? That is my next question:

If I use different types of batteries, would I need to change the battery profile in Escribe every time I change the battery type?

And another one:

If I "dress up" my mod in a silicone sleeve, will I need to run Case Analyzer again?

Both questions apply to DNA 200 and DNA 75, I have both types of devices.

Thank you in advance.

The profile is only going to help the battery indicator on the device to be a bit more accurate. I rotate through 3 different brand of batteries, but only keep the one profile in the device.

If you are using TC, it would be a good idea to re-run the analyzer with the sleeve on. You can save a profile without the sleeve & one with the sleeve, and change them out depending on how you have your device dressed. Proper case thermal values are important in TC mode!
