coolpowers Posted March 1, 2016 Author Report Share Posted March 1, 2016 I've had my Reuleaux about 3 months, I love the form factor and the consistent TC vape on SS430 that the DNA200 provides.But the other day it just died, mid vape. When I got home I hooked it up to eScribe and it powered on but went straight to WARRANTY SERVICE. I now see that this isn't uncommon, but my symptoms seem to be a bit different.- Pack shows 0.00V with 3 cells inserted- Each cell shows correct voltage- It does charge, and it does balance- It doesn't read an atomizer- Bandgap is 1.009V (or it least it was before I opened it up to look at the internals, now it's higher, around 1.1V)So I'm not an electronics guy so I don't have any testing equipment or even a soldering iron, but I figure I know when something looks wrong so I opened it up.- all wires seem fine - no problems at the soldering points etc.- the fuse isn't blownAs I've been typing this, I've been doing some more tests:- if I remove cell 2 (the front battery), it does read a pack voltage- if I slowly insert cell 2, there is a brief moment where it seems to make contact, correctly reads the pack voltage and all three cells and it will detect the atomizer, and is capable of firing- there's a slight "ping" sound when the above happens, but I can't tell if it's from the positive end of the battery as it passes the plastic protection ring in the battery bay or something else- it doesn't matter which batteries I use in the cell 2 positionI would understand it being a simple contact issue if cell 2 wasn't being detected properly at all when fully inserted, but it is and charges fine.Any idea where to go from here to fix this? I don't expect Wismec or the online vendor to do anything about this, and I don't think it's a problem with the board itself so I don't see a reason to submit a ticket to Evolv. I'm posting here mainly because you guys are the most knowledgeable when it comes to wiring/connections, which is where I assume the issue is.
