Recieved my hotcig back today-100% working and so happy with Evolv.


Recommended Posts

Hi people. 

You may remember I had to RMA my hotcig DNA 200, that came with a bad battery as well.

Well, today I finally got the hotcig in the post (It was 8 days, well within what Evolv said) I connected the new battery-and for the first time ever was welcomed with a DNA200 that turns on without a computers help! 

I am currently charging the mod, I am doing the first charge in Escribe, and have created 4 profiles for NI200, TI, SS, and Kanthal. 

I have changed the preheat from 200W to around 80W, with a punch of about 6, across them all (apart from kanthal, TC is obviously off for that).

Now-I can safely charge my mod without Escribe cant I? I am only doing the first charge in Escribe as the battery was ever so slightly out of balance-not damaged, but cell 1 was .2V less than the others.

Once I have it all set up, how I like it-can I just charge with a 1A , 5V usb wall adapter? As this will be much faster for me-double the speed than in escribe. 

I just want to make sure I wont damage my DNA 200 charging it this way.

I was so impressed with Evolv-that I ordered a DNA200 Wismec Realaux, from the UK. I shopped around for the best price, but got it from a reputable store-it should be in stock the end of next week-so for now its just the hotcig I will mainly be using. 

So, I am safe to use the 1A, 5V wall USB charger yes?

I want to say a huge thank you to Evolv, and also paypal. 

Gearbest and hotcig screwed me over, but paypal refunded me everything that I lost and no cost to gearbest-as gearbest would not even refund paypal, let alone me. 

So, could some people please let me know after this first charge on Escribe, can I use the wall adapter safely? 

Thank you all.

As long as you have uploaded the correct Wh that corresponds with your lipo pack to the board you should be fine charging the battery with a wall charger.

It is a 10 W/H battery- Escribe suggested 9.99 W/Hs though so I went with that. 

That will be OK yeah? If I went ABOVE the W/h's I guess it would try and overcharge the battery would it? Or would my battery meter just be off? 

Thanks everyone, Conan.
