    Triade 250c wont go past 250 watts!

    Are you using US or International firmware, it will matter?

    Low resistance build

    Only when the material greatly differs for the known TCR values, but Replay should not be affected much by that, only TC. Keep in mind that I'm just a member like yourself (but forum moderator) and not an Evolv Tech. I just got my first color board last Christmas and only messed with Replay a few times in the last couple of months........but I do read the forum a lot.

    Are these pre-made coil?

    Low resistance build

    You might give this setting a try, change to "dubious coils" and upload to device. Easy to try and put back if it doesn't work out.

    Low resistance build

    The wire it's self won't but any wonky connection between the board and coil can show up causing a slight change. Replay under these circumstances will sometimes work with a non TC wire (sometimes)

    Low resistance build

    I decided to try replay in the SS316 profile. So I go into EScribe and check the box for Replay and upload the settings. I then try it out, no choice for Reply. I had checked the box in the wrong profile, That's corrected and Replay is working in the SS316 TC profile. Mistakes are easy.

    I think that maybe your wire isn't SS, might be Kanthal or Nichrome. But I wouldn't expect that much change from a non TC wire so I just might be wrong about that.

    Low resistance build

    While you seem to be getting slightly less change in resistance I feel it is enough for Replay to work. I was concerned that perhaps you were not using the International firmware so I flashed mine to the US version and Replay still worked. I'm not understanding that unless the Theme is allowing Replay to work. Here is a snip of Device Monitor showing firmware version anyway. It was my understanding that the International firmware was required for Replay but now it appears not, I'll be farther looking into that.

    I thought those Kanger coils had too much resistance change, here is SS316L Clapton on DNA250C. Also included is profile page. Replay is working.

    Low resistance build

    0.80 to 0.89 is hardly any change, here is mine, while the resistance is much higher than your note the % of change here. You are getting a 12% approx. increase and mine is around 18%, I'm thinking that Replay should work with that. Mine here is with Kanger SS316lL drop in coil heads, I see more of an increase than expected, I'll post a screen using a SS316 Clapton on next post in a couple of minutes.

    Low resistance build

    In EScribe's Device Monitor does it show the resistance climb from cold to hot? Also, if not already, choose "Watts" for your material even though your using ss316, give that a try. And choose that same "watts" profile on the mod as well. With TC working but not Replay something must be being overlooked.

    Low resistance build

    I have to ask, what kind of wire are you using for the coil? You did say TC worked so maybe not that good of a question I guess.
  13. dwcraig1

    Low resistance build

    Also enable Replay for the profile in EScribe that you intend to use.
  14. dwcraig1

    Low resistance build

    You should be OK at that resistance with most TC wire . Keep in mind that when using a wire like SS316 which has very little change in resistance from cold to hot any false/poor connections between the coil and board will start to show (interfere) with the lower you go down in resistance.

    silly question

    If you have nothing copper to use a small disc cut from a disposable aluminum pie pan would be good enough to experiment with.
  17. dwcraig1

    silly question

    keep after it, you should find it. Try the copper shim, I'm pretty sure it's going to make a difference.
  18. dwcraig1

    silly question

    Is there enough pressure against the battery to make a good connection? You might try adding a thin piece of copper between the cap and cell negative as a shim just to see if that makes any difference.
  19. dwcraig1

    silly question

    Ramps, I didn't know what to call them. Does the cap still get hot?

    silly question

    clean the ramps on the side of the cap and the corresponding areas of the mod. Did this problem start as soon as you received the mod or was it over time?
  22. dwcraig1

    silly question

    I have a VA 21700 DNA75C Spade, the battery cap and it's threads in the mod get oxidized quite easily. I was cleaning them with alcohol and they would oxidize rather quickly again. A couple of days ago when I cleaned the I applied a tiny amount of Noalox to the mods threads. It's too soon to know if this is going to work out but I suspect it will. Take note as to if for sure it's the battery cap and not the battery that's getting hot. A 26650 just isn't powerful enough for 100 watts, a 30 amp continuous 18560 or 2xxxx would be required. For sure it sounds like high resistance at the battery cap.

    Bump fire

    Does it fire longer than the maximum puff time that is set in EScribe? I would make it bump fire while connected with EScribe/Device monitor and see if it's the board that's supplying power to the 510 or if it's being powered directly from the batteries. I'm thinking that your 510 pin/wire is making contact with one of the battery wires perhaps.

    Lock screen

    Perhaps there's a setting in the theme that you are using that can control lock time.
  25. dwcraig1

    Lock screen

    Perhaps increase "lock time" (currently set to 240 minutes)
