    Nifethal 52 and 250c

    How old is the tank? I've had similar issues in the past and found eventually the tank was just done working properly. I use the same wire and have for a few years now. Prior was SS 430. I've had some issues with resistance reading high, but since I know what they should be and how they usually read on my mods, if it doesn't look right I just loosen and tighten that tank and re-read the resistance. Normally fixes it. Regarding the resistance of your coils, I have never been able to TC or Replay lower than 0.13 and have settled on a build that reads 0.18 on my coil master and 0.165 on my DNA 250Cs and DNA 75C. The discrepancy between the coil master and the three mods has never been explained and doesn't really matter to me. Or to my vaping. Might want to try a higher resistance build and see how it performs. If that works, cool. If not, I'd open a ticket with Evolv and RMA the unit. They have done a couple of mine in the past and have excellent return time.
  2. I have a Paranormal 250C that reads coils too high. I have other 'C' chipped mods and my buildbox that all agree the coils are 0.145 On the Paranormal, they read 0.17-0.21 That isn't good for vaping in Replay mode. I have sent the mod in for RMA service because of this once already and a new board was installed as it was not recognized in EScribe when it returned. Worked fine for a couple of weeks and back to the high readings. Ideas?

    Paranormal 250C- High Resistance Readings

    Hmmm, I thought I posted a reply yesterday. I used the copper plug, tighten/loosen 10-12 times. Each time the resistance got a bit better. Finally, it was stable at 0.008 and that is what I used for mod resistance. The Paranormal is vaping fine now and has been since yesterday. But yes, I have the idea that Evolv is only responsible for the board and not the rest of the components. Perhaps I was thinking because I opened a ticket for this, got an RMA, got the mod serviced by Evolv who, I guess replaced the board, then a few weeks later have the exact same issue, maybe it was the board. Not being completely sure and not wanting to send the mod off again is why I asked. Since I has eliminated the tanks as the source, that left the mod. I cleaned, tightened, etc. Looks like only the much longer threading of the plug was going to free whatever it freed. That I could use the copper plug to exercise the 510 and get it back in service was great, glad I happened to have one.

    Hit Steam-Engine and get the profile for Alloy52 They use the other alloy for the ID, 52 vs 48 It is what I use for my NiFe48 from Zivipf.

    Paranormal 250C- High Resistance Readings

    Thanks, I do have the copper from Smoke Free Mods. Haven't used it since the VT166. I have wiped/cleaned the 510 threads and pin. Again, this is the only device the tanks read weird on. And, the resistance is variable on this mod. Kinda disappointing as it made a trip to Evolv and returned with a new chip (I guess since it wasn't recognized by EScribe) but same problem as I sent it in.

    Paranormal 250C- High Resistance Readings

    Yes, other devices all have show the same resistance for the tanks. I suppose it could be dirty connector, but I have used iso alcohol to clean the 510 connector and also made certain the pin is floating.
  7. Just got my Linux box setup and SP19 is fine with my 200s 250Cs and 75C Thanks!

    Huge Shout Out to Evolv!

    Evolv has always done right by me and my mods if they needed repair. It's why mine is a DNA only household.

    Escribe for OS Chrome

    It's rumored that Linux support is coming to Chrome OS 'Real Soon Now'. Maybe at that time we'll be able to run the Linux version on Chrome OS.

    Lost Vape Paranormal 250c issues

    Is it reading consistent over time? My main reason for saying that is the lousy QC of Lost Vape recently. If you are going to give up, give up after exhausting all options. Then return to the AF compatible mods.

    Lost Vape Paranormal 250c issues

    @Photo Pete There is no way any AF capable chipset gives better results than any DNA chipset. Just isn't in the same league. Now, the mods the chips are put into are a different matter. Lost Vape, IMO, has dropped the ball on QC with nearly all their recent mods. Including their Modefined series. Your problem lies with them, not Evolve. I have one of their less than stellar Paranormal 250c mods and find it does odd things from time to time. I work around them as I love Replay mode. I'm actively looking for a new dual battery 250c and when I find it, will retire the Paranormal. Lost Vape is no longer on my list. For your issue, I can partly sympathize. If you are handy, open it up and look at the wiring especially at the 510 connector. Or, exchange the mod for a different one wherever you bought it if still in the return window. Else, bump the temp/use Replay and vape.

    Pk Mode gone after Update?

    It isn't meant to support straight Kanthal. If it does, consider it blind luck. Evolv does not advertise it as doing Kanthal in Replay mode. I'd think the very name of the hidden option would be a big hint. Unlikely.

    Problem with tc vt75D

    Go here and set the wire type to Nifethal 52 (Alloy52) that is how that site identifies NiFe48. NiFe48 CSV Tool Click on DNA200 in the table on the right and then download the CSV Install it into the Materials then use that material in your profile. Make sure, of course, that all your connections are tight/clean/good on mod, tank, and coil.
  14. Just run the batteries down to less than 50% and do your case thermals.

    Material-ish Fire - DNA75c - DNA250c Optimized

    What a great theme! You’ve knocked it out of the park with the 2.0 update. Not a handful of settings slapped together. This is elegant, cohesive, and powerful. Thanks so much!

    Replay field is blank

    Actually, retird is correct. If it can't be enabled, the right software and firmware is in place, else it would be cannot be found. Many of the 'Replay does not work' posts I've seen and answered are those who insist that Kanthal will/must work. Many of the rest have been 'I made some changes to a theme and Replay doesn't work'. If you have a working mod, follow the directions for enabling Replay, it has worked on all the 75c & 250c mods I've had the pleasure to setup.

    Where is this setting? I'm blind today...
  18. I have Replay working in power mode now with SS430 coils. I am a TC vaper and normally don't use power mode. In TC, I never lock resistance, just allow the chip to refine it as I go. Do I need to lock resistance in power mode using Replay?

    Replay field is blank

    I think you have other problems with your tank/coils/wicking. No idea what you mean by confirm TC material in wattage material table. I use SS430 daily and can assure you that Replay works well with it.

    Gauges - Major update 2.0.0

    I don't think that fits the usage. The amount used is shown for two types of memory. On-board and off-board. Since I'm asking, I certainly can be wrong.

    Any idea what on-board and off-board mean?

    Gauges - Major update 2.0.0

    Excellent update sir! I love all three themes, but this one has become my favorite. I appreciate the 'phantom' click disappearing. Always confused me as I knew where the cursor was supposed to be.

    Thank You Evolv!

    Just wanted to say thanks for the Replay mode. I have always been a TC vaper. No use for power mode. I've been known to forget to open the JFC on occasion. I also like the consistency. I have been using Replay mode in wattage on my 250c and 75c for a few days now. Wow! This is an excellent vape! Get the same puff time after time but without the steep power ramp down of TC. I vaped a tank completely dry and just got a warning along with no vapor. With wattage alone, I would have gotten a dry hit. Plus, though it's likely due to knowing it is different, but the flavor seems to be noticeably better. If Replay can make a wattage vaper out of me, it's sure to be a winner.

    Here's the memory usage info from the newest Gauges. Don't know how it compares. I wonder where the off-board memory is?
