    no comment on the new firmware, yet? Loving the inverse display today. I wonder how much battery it will cost to keep it that way. I mostly lurk here, but hey looks like I got the drop on you pros. ;)

    Not sure what else is new, yet. Just installed

    Anyone know why installing new firmware always blacks out my evic? Something I'm doing wrong? The nice folks over at joyetech instructed me on how to put it into safemode to let the firmware instal, but the first attempt always ends up in read error.

    I don't own an Evic, but thought firmware 2.0 was the most current.... ? no ? If I did I would try and hack it lol... it's in my nature.

    They say 2.0 is coming.... they never said 1.4 was coming out, but they've upgraded MVR to 1.4 also. I think you have upgrade firmware to use MVR 1.4.

    Anyway, the wait for 2.0 continues.... wonder what they have on their mind for that?

    Ahh here's the list. Kind of small list of changes, but I like the inverse led.

    All that does is download a zip file that contains an exe file. Nothing I can do with that. Thanks though.

    I haven't updated my evic since i smashed my laptop screen and switched to this annoyingly slow tiny netbook with no java support. -___- haven't felt a need to download it to this pc either. lovee it just the way it is.

    And this it yet another reason I luvs me some evic....upgraded to 1.4!
    My favorite features so far: the inverse screen (sweet when working outside) and further customizable home screen.

    Anybody know what 2.0's got in store, maybe some kinda of game? I'm thinking some type of tetris game, controls would be perfect for it (left-right-button flips object).

    I'm loving it. The inverse thing not so much, but the fact that they relegated the battery meter to the bottom, and I now have the option to put my volts/ohms and a clock or puff counter!

    I've always wanted to put the system clock and date on the homescreen, but I couldn't before because I also needed the battery meter and the volts/ohms!

    As far as the Wattage limitation, it could be a hard (hardware) limit determined by the limits of the buck/boost converter internally.

    Has anyone cracked one of these open to see who's switcher they are using? Also, another thing that may limit the current is the resistance of the flyback inductor in switching circuits. The resistance will determine how much watts the inductor is dissipating, so it may not be a good idea to run it at high amperage (dotted with volts for watts), because you don't want that inductor to be cooking...

    you could always see the battery level at the bottom if you did not show the battery reading on the top right

    Nothing on me!!!! When I got home last night I downloaded the latest version. BTW Just got my Evic Friday. So far a very nice vape!!!!
    (Thought I'd never say I own an Evic, but it is fun to play with). ((Yea I'm that Old)). I can see now why it's so popular!!!!!!!!
    And all this comes from a vapor that owns a lot of different mods.

    Anyone else having a little bug with the temp alarm in Fahrenheit?
    Celsius is no problem.

    Ever since upgrading to 1.4 my temp alarm is set to like 45 Fahrenheit when I power my eVic up regardless of what I set the alarm to via the eVic or PC. I set the alarm in Fahrenheit and then switched to Celsius. Seems to have no problems remembering what I set the temp alarm for in Celsius. So I have a work around, just wondering if this was noticed by anyone else.

    Boh!

    There is a weirs bug though, I got my volts/ohm on the left and time/date on the right, my eVic set to vw, everytime I'm adjusting the watts up and down, the volta shows time for a split second...


    What's different with the 1.4 then? Is it just the inverse function?

    I just glad I'm not the only person with this issue. I thought it was just me. I left mine in the Celsius setting and maintained the proper settings.
