How much extra circuitry would it take to make it switchable so its your own option. Like who switches to stealth mode and vapes blind when in tc.

It does not take any extra circuitry. It's just a software change. Probably one that should be applied in the Profile.

While in temperature mode or a temp profile I'd love being able to adjust temperature versus wattage.

on an rta I adjust both upwards but only as the coil and wicking becomes blocked and codged up with use, to maintain the same vape so it makes no odds to me anyway. im so finely perfectly balanced I never reach the max value ive set, am allways a few degrease lower lol,,, each to their own,,, but if its only a programmable feature I think they should be adding and updating as requests and idears go in, like what els can we give them for their money, and other folk can see how dedicated we are and whant one ..........ect
don't want to be part of the temp debate over watts and heat but I changed my temperature protected screen, the wording never rely sat with me.

Well, it looks like Evolve are not interested in further developing and investing in DNA200 chip. With the speed they react to our requests DNA200 will be obsolete very soon if it is not already..... Just get RX200 and forget it...............

I see Wattage control vs Temperature control as being similar to Shutter Priority vs Aperture priority in Photography.

In Photography, Shutter Priority is where you set the Shutter Speed, and the Aperture is adjusted by software to provide the appropriate exposure given the ASA of the film.   Aperture Priority is where you set the Aperture, and software sets the Shutter speed to provide the appropriate exposure given the ASA of the film.

In Vaping, when in Wattage mode, you set the Wattage, and software adjusts the voltage so that you get the right amount of current through your coil given the Resistance of the Coil.    In TC mode, you set the temperature, and software adjusts the voltage so that you get the right amount of Wattage through your coil given the changing Resistance of the Coil.

It wouldn't make sense to give you control of the Shutter Speed when in Aperture Priority, or control over the Aperture when in Shutter Priority.   Just as it doesn't make sense to give you control over Temperature when you're in Wattage mode, or giving you control over Wattage when in Temperature Control mode.

I agree that when in a "Temperature Control" mode, that "Temperature" should be the primary adjustment of the up/down buttons  (Or at least an option to set this in a profile.)

I definitely think this should be a selectable option in Profiles because after carefully reading this thread, I've come to the conclusion that there are two different ways to use the TC mode.

1.  Set wattage to max, then let TC throttle your wattage once it gets to temp.   Adjust temp for more/less vapour.    (pre-heat isn't too useful when using this method, as the wattage is maximum until the unit determines that the coil is at/above temp, so should probably be turned off or minimized)

2.  Set TC to a temperature that will prevent dry burns.   Then adjust wattage to reduce/increase vapour just as you would in regular Wattage mode.  TC is more of a limiter to prevent dry burns.   (With this method, Pre-heat is a huge advantage as it helps get coil to temp faster when using lower wattages)

I think that method 2 is what Evolv designed the DNA 200 for, but they should make an attempt to accommodate those who use method 1.

I'm in the Method 1 camp, and would like to control Temp with the up/dn buttons, rather than Wattage.

""Yeh but no but yeh"" ""i think"" with your camera explanation the film can only ever be the juice as a medium for two exples..Its got to be for the decision of the user realy because: say bring a .25mm wire up to temperature with 12 watts, but to bring .50 mm wire up to the same temperature in the same time frame will need 24 plus..
which brings me to the bit about why was there a screen shortage for absolutly months. Surly if the dna200 was your flag ship device and main source or hopefull main source of bread and butter money in your pocket, surly one would procreate several other alternatives within days, possibly even of different sizes, with user programable format, like whats being disscused above,, the first thing i noticed was the themes are the same for all profiles, i thought there was a problem with my escribe program and over writ it anout three times.
The forum and programs got launched and adjusted and tweeked for a few months but nothing since. This time last year i said i wouldnt build any 200's main reason was because i didnt understand lipo batterys, but i was using the excuse that evolv move the goal posts so often theres no point because a 150 watt with fixed screen and twin 18650's would be moor practical and mod builder friendly and would probly be along shortly, dont get me wrong ive built six, two boards where basket cases so got sent back, which is anouther £10 plus a month waitng, calling it an early adopters forum and not working or comenting on idears that are coming up to the surface, compared to the initial first months, looks like the bosses have done a runner..

My point with the camera was more along the lines of... "When Cameras became sophisticated (computerized?), they gave you an easy method to control shutter speed when in shutter priority, or Aperture size when in Aperture priority mode.  The DNA 200 should behave appropriately and give you an easy method to control Wattage when in Wattage mode, AND and easy way to control Temperature when in TC mode."  

The current design assumes that you want to control Wattage when in both Wattage mode, AND in Temperature Control mode.   

That isn't true for all users, so it should be an option on a profile so users of this method don't have to jump through hoops every time they want to adjust the temp setting when in Temp Control mode.

I would love it if I had the option to adjust the temp on the main screen when in temp control mode.

I strongly agree with this.

I always have my wattage at pretty much max since in the end I want instant heat.

having to lock the device and hold + and - everytime is tiring as hell

I'm really hoping evolve hand their hands full going into the holidays. I think we may see these tweeks after the new year. I love my dna200 like it floated down from the heavens.

+1 on the wattage / temp swap on main screen option. It's a must have. Please.
