    Well good news. I received an email from Evolv. Steve from Evolve said to send it back and they will replace it. I wish I got the email a bit sooner as i have it at home and i would have sent it in today.

    Are both wires (+/-) soldered to the 510 connector?

    You might also want to look at a different battery holder, or at least swapping out the springs in that holder. Those battery holders are notorious for crappy contacts.

    A good way to eliminate the 510 would be to hold the out wires to the center pin and body of a carto that you know works.

    I'm not saying that there couldn't be something wrong with the DNA, but all my check atomizer errors are always related to the 510 connection or atty.

    Yes both + and - of the atomizer connection were soldered when tested. Both my Russian and Ithaka work fine in my current mods when checking with the mod as well as a cartomizer. I tried it with both battery trays, the multimeter showed 4.2 on 2 fully charged batteries when tested on the tray.

    Well I ordered a Brass Chi You from the link i posted yesterday along with a extra Brass and SS top cap. I might as well get rid of the 510 connector and use a nice top cap to complement my box mod

    I would test directly from the dna to a carto or something, a low 510 center pin will cause all kinds of havoc. Sure would suck to wait for a replacement DNA only to have the same problem.

    I doubt your issue is battery or battery holder related, it was friendly advice on the battery holder. They will read fine just setting there, but under load not so much.
