How to remove original Efusion panel to replace Li-Po.


Recommended Posts

EDIT- I did it! I've made a little guide on how to for anyone else- 

Here is how to do it, with some photos. 

First turn it on its side, with the screen facing to the right, and the 510 to the top. Unscrew the screws,  and then either get something very thin to get between the frame and the panels, or something fin that fits in the screw holes after unscrewing, and gently lever the panel upwards. It will eventually have enough for you to grab. Once you have enough, lift the corners a bit more until you can get some small scissors to cut a little of the panel. The first one snapped itself, but luckily in a straight line. 

This is how it should look

You will open it up to something like this. This is with a new battery, but I had the exact same one as used by lost vapes as I was given it in compensation as the mod took a long time to stock. I didn't know if it would work, as it had been sitting in a draw for around about 2 years at least, as I didn't have a Li-Po charger. [IMG]

You must gently pull apart the yellow connector-the wires pull out with the battery, Be careful not to pull too hard, as the other side of the connector has wires soldered to the board. Then remove the white balance connector which is at the bottom right. 

This is what it looks like empty, I like the fact the board is protected with a cover, none of my other DNA200's have covers over the boards. [IMG]

 

Then simply connect the white balance connector, it is very fiddly if you attach the yellow connection first. Then attach the yellow connector. It is a very snug fit- you want the wires from the lipo coming from the far bottom side, DON"T put the Li-Po in with the wires on the balance connection side. Where there is such little space, if you do this you will need to bend the wires at extreme angles, which could cause problems.  Lay them at the bottom like in my image above, you will need to press the yellow connector flat against the base of the mod. 

Success! Went from not charing, and showing battery empty, to working perfectly. I was just about to give up on Evolv this week as every single one of my DNA200's and 75's has had an issue, but I realise a battery is not their fault.

You don't link to the page containing the image, but to the image itself and put it in [img ] tags.

Edit: The forum editor is doing something or it doesn't allow external linking through https or Imgur doesn't allow that.

I did wonder what was going on, strange. If you click the links they show up though, so hopefully it might help someone who needs to replace the battery in a original Efusion.

lol its actually a loop connector to complete the circuit. There are 2 versions depending on your mah and voltage. There is the more common xt30 and the beefy xt60. Before that vapor shark used bullet plugs which were near impossible to work with.  As long as you use a correct soft cell cutoff ( i use 2.8) in escribe's developer/manufactur suite and you keep all the cells married then they are pretty much unbeatable. VS FTW

I'm confused, my one is the 1300MAH one, looks like it used the Xt30 connector and not the bigger xt60. It's the original Efusion, not the duo, just thought it might help others who were weary of opening their mod.

Its not so much about the mah, mine is only 950 being a VS and all. Its about the battery whats per hour. Escribe's normal version should have a battery wph calculator.....I know the manufacturer version does. I have a 3 cell with a discharge capability of 11.1 so my battery wph is 9.99 I don't know if that helps anyone at all lol but ya i know exactly what you mean. When i did my first battery swap i was nervous as can be. And since i was working with bullet plugs i almost ripped the positive negative terminals right out the chip-set like 10 times lol. Here is arguably the worst battery ever, to show the bullet plugs. I also threw in a little mod porn of my favorite DNA's : )    BTW the DNA 250 absolutely DEVASTATES the much more expensive sx mini g class. literally no comparison
