  1. Hey lovely people, I have some resistance issues with several devices (paranormal and drone) showing the same problem. Long story short (will elaborate asap), I have two paranormals and two drones that aren't reading cold and live ohms correctly. For example: They all read a RDA with two coils and say the cold ohms are 0.34 and when I fire, it drops to 0.28 and do the Temp Protect thing. Unless I manually change the live ohm, it will not read the ohms correctly. However, when I screw a tank on, it reads ohms near perfect. I own one of both devices, Paranormal being the oldest and then there's my mate's Paranormal and a customer his Drone from my work that encountered the same issue. Both the other devices have never been changed or altered with settings or themes. Mine are customized. They all run latest servicepacks and everything works fine except the reading issues. I have tried resets, did the proper deep cleaning on the outside only. Inside would be an option if there was a reason for it, but they all are obtained at different times and are used by three different people. All devices are, sofar I can tell, in mint condition. No major leakage from liquids or whatever. I even clean my 510s from the black electrical disacharge stuff, so I always have a clean connection. I also tried different RDAs, coils and they all had multiple disassembled ultrasonic cleansings. Nothing changed =/ I thought it was just mine and didn't really bother, but now it's happening on other devices as well. Atomizer Analyzer also never goes stable and always reading too high as I said above. Whether or not it goes stable, it is still too high compared to the live ohms. Last but not least... When I take the RDAs to other not-so-smart chipped devices, they all read ohms correctly. I don't know what else I need to share, but let me know if so. Thank you for reading!
  2. Have been experiencing some oddities with reading resistance on a DNA75 (in a JAC Vapour Series B DNA75). Note that I'm thrilled with this device generally speaking, and have been quite pleased with the Evolv boards given my experience with other mods, but have encountered some issues with my TC which I'm trying to resolve. Being highly specific: for MTL purposes, I made a coil from Lightning Vapes SS316L Clapton wire (28/36); 6 wraps, 2.5mm. Steam Engine suggests this should be around 0.7ohm (give or take, leg length and all that), and indeed when built and installed in a Kayfun Prime, tested on my Coilmaster tab it reads at 0.71ohm...so far so good. When I put this on my Therion 166 (I realize this is a DNA250-based board), it seems to correctly read it at 0.71 ohm and seems to work pretty flawlessly for TC with wattage set to 25W (which again is as I would expect given my experience with the wire---drops to around 13-15W once at temp) so seems like all is well. When I put the same tank on the Series-B, it reads it at 0.77ohm and the TC gets odd which is to be expected I guess since the chip thinks the cold resistance is 0.06ohm higher than it actually is---with the same 25W it never thinks it hits 220C so I'm basically just using the coil fired at 25W mode (and temperature is likely higher than 220 once it gets going I'd assume based on what's going on when it's on the Therion). I've done a lot of reading about this sort of thing now and realize I should ensure a few things are set up properly, and am in the process of doing just that. From the mod settings in EScribe, I can see that there isn't really any manufacturer set-up going on here as the case resistance is set to 0...all values appear to be stock default (the Therion came with case resistance set to 0.004). The atomizer analyzer isn't showing any drift in the resistance while it's sitting there (other than minuscule fluctuations as it quick-fires the SS coil), and I did a case analyzer run as the room temperature display was whacked anyway and I've allowed EScribe to set that up for me for what that's worth so will see if that helps at all. Am working on doing the "short" test to see what the case resistance actually is and will set it accordingly once I have the numbers---am waiting for a friend with some solder to come by so I can do the soldered-510-atomizer approach. My concern is that given that case resistances tend to be below 0.01, this isn't likely to be effecting the resistance reading sufficiently to account for the 0.06 difference I'm experiencing with this coil (although is likely having a more dramatic effect on the 0.15 Ni200 stock coils I use in their S22 tank so definitely worth doing regardless). I'm asking then what the next step should be should the above not correct this issue. My current plan is next to open the device up, ensuring connections/threads are clean and verifying that all the screws are making good contact with the board/510/etc. Just seeing if there is additional input as I continue to work on this issue as given my inexperience, this is proving to be very time consuming as it is Thanks ~DMcC
  3. Hi As we all know, when you start vaping on a coil, the ohms will normally drop after using it for a while (for example, new coil installed reading at 0.2, could drop to 0.15-0.18 over time). Is it advisable to go into the atomizer selection on the mod and measure the coil again occasionally as the coil is used so the mod is reading accurately or just to leave it at what it read originally? Thank You!
  4. I've been searching for days, trying to figure this out on my own but I can't seem to do it. I've been trying to get SS 316L to work in temp control and it seems to be very difficult. For instance, I will build coils (or use pre-made, I've tried both), and I aim to be somewhere around 0.4-0.5ohms. I lightly dry burn SS 316L at 10watts in a dark room and get all of the hot spots out. I then wick the coil and measure the cold resistance in Escribe. My most recent coil comes in at 0.4 @ 72° room temp, but when I vape the coil, the resistance also rises (I know SS 316L does this), but it will raise or lower from 0.39-0.45 and my mod can't seem to account for this variation correctly. Vapor production quickly declines and flavor mutes. I've tried countless different .csv's but none of them seem to fix the issue. In my most recent build, I will attempt to fire 0.4ohms at 40watts 475° but my mod will usually ask me if I connected a new atomizer at 0.43ohms. If I choose 'no, use old settings' then my vapor is basically non-existant. If I change the resistance to 0.43 then the temp control is all over the place and I will get dry hits. Any advice? Are my builds just crappy/inconsistent? Should I try a material that isn't SS 316L? I've tried spaced coils and they seem to work a bit better, but not by much. Do I need a different .csv? My atomizers are Gas Mods GR1 and B2K. Tha. nks! Edit: I've made sure that my lead connections are extra secure, that's not the problem.
  5. 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?
  6. Hi folks. Long time DNA fan. During last years labor day sale I ordered a Triade 250 with a hefty discount. About a month after opening it, I noticed that it was overreading the resistance by a decent amount. I just tested it vs a very accurate Therion and the therion read .177 and the Triade .223 I checked on escribe and the internal resistance is set to .004. I thought of maybe just focusing on the voltage output and using known tanks or known builds on my rda's but the hit felt different. Now with the DNA250 out, I am ready to regift this barely used Triade DNA250. I know now that my 6 month Lost Vape policy is gone, I hear that I can mail my mod to Evolv and they will fix it. Does anyone have any idea how much they charge? My other option is fix it. I can't find a thread on my mod, but it seems people had a similar problem with the Lost Vape Paranormal 166. Maybe Vape shops (havent been to one in years) do repairs. As I mention below, I tested the Triade with "atomizer analzyer" tool and it got .316 with no atomizer on it anyways, I appreciate any thoughts. Below, the resistance analyer for the Triade (batteries charging prob for the F) and the next for the therion. Baby beast tank with the .15 mesh coil.
  7. Hi guys, I have a question for everyone with Paranormal DNA250c from Lost Vape, or for anyone that could help me, yesterday i finally got my new Paranormal DNA 250c, as this is my first mod (used only ijust2 and smok vape pen v2 before) i am still learning many things (basically i am a beginner). Now to the point: I am using Cthulhu Hastur mtl rta with the smallest air disc inside (the tightest draw), my target was 1ohm with SS316l 28ga from geekvape which indicated that i should use 9 wraps to get to my 1.0ohm target (used steam-engine.org). But, when i turned on the mod the coil came out at around 1.1+-ohms, with manual settings i could reduce it to 1.06ohms after few hours of not vaping. (I have attached photos of the coil) Using it for MTL-ing at around 12w it works great in replay, also in temp control using SS316 preset, replay basically sucks the coils out of the juice without one dry hit, well the atomizer runs pretty hot and sucks alot of juice for mtl, but after chainvaping i guess thats normal (or not, cant compare it), but what i fear is that paranormal series had some issues with reading the ohms because of 510 connector and that i am a victim of the same problem 75c had: Am i doing something wrong if im not getting 1.0ohms at 9 wraps, but 1.1+-, have i done a mistake building the coil, or does my paranormal 250c have a problem with 510 pin reading ohms a little bit high? The internal resistance of the mod is 0.004ohms (checked through EScribe). I would be eternally thankful if someone could help me, With Regards, Abadaman Photos of the coil:
  8. Is this normal while dry firing kanthal the resistance changes, sometimes little by little and sometimes a drastic change in resistance but when wicking and vaping the resistance is constant and stable? Sorry if this is a stupid question but I was used using other chips which doesn't accurately read resistance but it locks it. ohms.mp4
