    Default Dani from dicodes, what chip is in there? Updated nivel?

    There's a new mod I saw a review of called Danni by dicodes, looks like a semovar, provari, etc... has some nice options. Wondering what chip is being inside? Anyone know?

    It's a different chip made by this company: dicodes GmbH in Bottrop

    Has far as i know it's the only that uses AC current. I am also interested, just because is the smallest 20w tube mod i found, but i will wait from pbusardo review before jumping in.

    Ukvapers as a long thread on it. Lot of happy owners there.

    Awesome! I can't wait! How much did you pay? The only site I saw it on wouldn't ship to USA?

    I paid 160 euros for a Dani Extreme L, plus an extra 42 euros to get it shipped with insurance from Germany to the US. I live in northern Virginia.

    Dicodes won't sell any of their products directly to the US (for the moment at least), but I found a vape shop owner who sold it to me in a private sale. He can probably hook you up too, if you're interested. His website is here: Akkuträger nach Maß aus Deutscher Herstellung - PB-Dampfer

    I just used the contact form on the site to get in touch with him. Very nice guy, and very fast shipping (considering it was international).

    I'm at work tonight, but I'll post tonight after using it a bit and taking some photos

    It looks really good...I'm curious to know how it performs. I don't need another mod but I've become a junkie

    Default Dani from dicodes, what chip is in there? Updated nivel?

    Ok, so I've been using it throughout the night, and I have to say I am very, very happy with my Dicodes Dani purchase. Pictures of the Dani (with a Rose v2 atomizer) are attached below, along with a side-by-side view of the Dicodes Dani Extreme L and a Provari v2 in 18650 mode (for size comparison).

    First, the looks: absolutely beautiful. It looks like a high end mech mod. Very minimalist in design and sharp looking. It appears to be all brushed stainless steel (including the very sturdy fire button), with a very small cut out for the screen. The only markings on it are a nice engraving of a coal mining rig on the side of the mod, a serial number on the top cap, and the Dicodes logo on the bottom cap.

    As for size, it's nice and compact. Even though I purchased the larger 18650 version, it's still about a half inch shorter than my Provari in 18650 mode. It's also a perfect 22mm diameter, unlike the Provari's 23mm diameter, meaning it looks great with my 22mm atomizers. Despite it's smaller size, it has a nice, weighty feel to it; it definitely does not feel like a cheap device.

    It is a single button device, which some might take issue with. Since I'm used to my Provari, I personally don't mind it at all. Where the Dani surpasses the Provari is the fact that it remembers what menu option you last used, so you don't have to scroll very far (if at all) to get to frequently used functions.

    The level of customizability in the menu system is fantastic. It has all the standards (power up, power down, check resistance, check battery), but then you can also used the Dani's extended functions. You can set an auto shutoff time after periods of inactivity. You can change between 0.5 and 1 watt power increments, screen luminosity, clicks to turn on, clicks to get into the menu system, etc.

    All this, plus the fact that it can hit 20 watts and fire down to a 0.7 ohm coil makes this a huge winner in my book. I highly recommend getting one if you don't mind shipping it from Germany.

    My only negative with the device is that it does not have a floating/adjustable center pin. For me, it's not a major issue, as most of my atomizers do have an adjustable post to achieve a flush look. If your atomizer doesn't have an adjustable post, at worst you'll have a very slight gap between the device and atomizer. They do include some spacer discs however, if your obsessive about that sort of thing.

    Dicodes unfortunately does not (as of yet) ship to the United States, due to insurance reasons. To get around this, I ordered it in a private sale from a German vape shop owner. His website can be found here: Akkuträger nach Maß aus Deutscher Herstellung - PB-Dampfer Simply use the contact form on that website, and he'll give you the instructions on how to place a private order. Super fast shipping and great customer service.

    If you're looking for a more in-depth look, I highly recommend checking out Safer Vapers review of the device (these guys are awesome and hilarious): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q3F-8sHrNP4

    Feel free to hit me up with any questions about it.

    Great summary. I've seen the review from those guys and from Scott Bonner (igetcha69 on YouTube).

    The looks of the thing are amazing and gorgeous, I didn't realize it was so short (a good thing).

    I've seen the menu structure on the review videos and they look confusing and intimidating, however the SvoeMesto semovar menu looks confusing on the videos, and I own one of those and understand it's menu quite well...LOL.

    Little disappointed to hear about the lack of adjustable 510 pin, just goes to show you that no mod is without it's flaws or cons

    Ok so here is the big question for me, what is the difference between AC and DC output current for us vapers? I also recall something in one of the reviews about changing the Hz of the output? Like maybe from 50 Hz to 100 Hz or something like that? Again not exactly sure what's the deal with that? I had heard it was something about sub ohm? I dunno... and that makes me wonder if the thing's output signal is PWM or flat like the DNA or nivel chip?

    Sorry for all the questions immediately after you've just gotten it...play around a few days and I'll (we'll) check back in a couple days. I'm subscribed.....

    Enjoy and congratulations!
