For the next build I bought the 1590BS - a little thicker than your 1590B which might fit the larger switch. I'm anxious to see how big it is in person, but plan on either using two Panasonic 2900mah PF's, or an Orion RC car 100c 2s 4000mah shorty pack (was nearly new but had some broken solder tabs) in parallel for 8000mah.
    I was thinking of using the tactile switch for the fire button as well...i bought 4 of them. for me its just too small to use as a fire button and i am a hard button pusher. The fire button i purchased has such a good push feel to it...not too soft or springy.

    I could move the battery holders to each side and the button will fit down between them with the cover on. Only issue with that is i cannot mount the DNA20 chip to the back of the box and flip the LCD 180 degrees...the ribbon cable is too short and wont let me do that. So mounting the DNA20 to the side of the box is my only real option

    BTW...i also have 4 of the Panasonic 18650 2900PF as well and am going to dedicate 2 of them to this mod

    Here is a quick pic of testing the DNA20 chip
    I also went to microcenter and picked up the thermal epoxy and picked up a new Dremel at Lowes

    Well i ran into a problem.I wanted to check the board before i mounted it permanently to the side of the box so I wired the battery, switch and atomizer connector. I put a battery in and it comes to life. I screw on an atomizer and press the fire button. Im greeted with "check atomizer". ok so i adjust the center post on my Russian and screw it back in, no go. I test the wires from the board to the atomizer connector and it checks out. I checked the atomizer connection to see if its shorted, its fine no short. I resoldered the connections on the board and connector, same check atomizer error. I checked again with my Ithaka, same error .

    Also, i don't see the ohms or voltage on the screen either when the atomizer is screwed in either. Im at wits end. I contacted evolve with the issue and am awaiting a response.

    Have you tried a normal 2 to 3 ohm carto/atomizer?

    Just tried what you suggested. No good. does not show any resistance, even with fire button pressed. I see the resistance of the attached atomizer when checking at the pin connection at the board
