Let's See your DNA 60's!

Recommended Posts

So here's my go at a DNA 60 small screen. (this was kind of a pain to do but doable. the DNA 60's 2 inductors are taller than the DNA 40's single one and with the DNA 60's addition of EScribe/data lines puts the "aggravation cherry" on top!)

Got myself a Vaporflask DNA 40, a while back, from the ECF classifieds at great price. I knew the DNA 60 small screen was eventually going to come out so i figured this would be a great housing for the new board. This flask still uses the 500mA charger board that came with it originally. The charging/data board that comes with the DNA 60 is way to big to retrofit inside the flask. So I "windshield wipered" all of the charging components off of the board, with a soldering iron, except the micro USB port. I soldered tiny enamel coated wires from the back of the micro USB pinout for the data lines and thicker enamel wires for USB +5v ~ -5v. 

Parts......

A friend on ECF switched a Hana V4 to the DNA-60 which I plan on in the future..

I like a lot of Hana Modz cases such as that one!

I upgraded these old Hana box's. I found a 3D printed sled at Shapeways & fitted the box with a 20700! It fit perfect with no mods to the case at all!

Battery life is great with the Sanyo B :)  I wanted to upgrade the door from screws to magnets, but never got around to it :(

How about a ZNA 60! Took a new old stock ZNA clone, installed the 60, drilled a hole in the bottom for a USB post, wired it up for Escribe access w/o charging. I also upgraded that darn crappy screw adjustable 510 by drilling out the top cap so I can drop the 510 in and lock it down with a set screw from the side, I used one of the VariTube V1 510's, they have always worked well for me. I have three more of these new old stock ZNA clones on my bench but I don't know if I want to build any more of them.

I also put a 60 with the data/charge board in one of the Hana V4 mods. Don't have any pics of mine which is the same blue as John la's above, these pics are just some I grabbed off the net to give you and idea what the V4 looks like. I have one more of these waiting on my bench for another 60 build.  Bought a pair of them that were new old stock, there was a fellow (zbbmods) on ebay who was selling left over stock from Hana after they closed their doors. I really like this tiny and light V4, and it really works well.
