    DNA40 – The New Paradigm

    Those of you who may have been following my writings probably remember me saying, several times, that resistance just isn’t as important as it used to be. I have been pondering that and trying to figure out a way to explain it better. Then it dawned on me, with this new technology there really is a whole new Paradigm regarding coil optimization.

    Brandon kept saying during the beta that temperature should be adjusted to your particular juice, and ...

  2. DNA40 and NI200 Wire

    OK NI200 wire.

    First, lets dispel the NR myth, there is NO SUCH THING as Non-resistance wire! ALL wire has resistance, even so called super-conductors cooled ...

  3. DNA40 fusing

    The board has:

    • Over/under Voltage protection
    • Over Current protection
    • Reverse polarity protection.

    So the board will protect itself no matter what you throw at it. The board itself does not need a fuse.

    HOWEVER, the battery is not protected. If something in your Mod (like a broken wire) creates a dead ...

  4. The DNA40

    As most of you know, I have been on the Evolv beta Team for this one and I have been testing the unit for several weeks. It has become my "go to" mod without doubt. By dialing in the temp to suit my juice and coil combo, I then get very repeatable hits, and no dry hits ever, even when dripping.

  5. Effects of Heat on Nicotine Degradation

    by , 05-05-2014 at 04:08 PM
    I want to determine the best bath temperature for speed steeping ejuice via a hot water bath. I want to know the effects of heat on Nicotine concentration, i.e. am I sacrificing potency, and if so how much.

    Here is the Test Protocol I am using.

    • Make a large batch of 50/50 PG/VG with ~4% nic, no flavoring or other dilutants.
    • Fill four 1oz Boston Rounds with this mixture.
    • Mark one bottle as the "Control Sample" and set it aside.
    • Mark each of the other
