Annoying problem with my Evolv DNA TC units

    Sometimes when removing the tank to re fill, and then re installing the tank, it fires hotter than what I had it set for originally for a while.
    For example, I have it set for 400F, and 25 watts. I do the refill, put it back on, and it's way to hot. I back it off to maybe 350, or 375F, and maybe lower the watts. After awhile I have to take everything back up. It doesn't ask if this is a new tank, or whatever it is that it asks. I have 4 DNA's, and they will all do it, maybe not every time, but frequently. Really don't know what is going on with this.

    That is a regular issue with bottom fill tanks. While the coil is hot or warm the ohm is different than at the room temp starting temp. To fix it you need to wait until the temp is room temperature and take it off and put it back on to reread.

    All the DNA mods I have ask and you need to hit + or - to answer if it is the same or different coil. But they only ask if the coil has changed by a certain % otherwise they just use the new reading.

    With the DNA 75C if you have this problem, you can just wait until it cools down, then use the menu to reread the atomizer.

    Hmmm, maybe I should lock the resistance?

    I would give that a try and see if it works for you

    None of mine are the 75c's. I'll make sure they sit for awhile before I take them off from now on.

    Should have added that in addition to taking it off and waiting for it cool back down. You also have to fire it with the tank off before putting it back on so it says check atomizer before putting it back on to get the new reading or it will just keep the bad reading from the warm coil

    In the escribe settings, get on the 'manufacturer' option, then check out the mod tab. There's this box with a cryptic label like 'lock range' which is probably set to 25%. This basically tells you that the mod won't ask you if you put a new tank on unless the resistance has changed by 25%.

    Go ahead and decrease that number. I think I set it to 5% or something

    Also, you could make sure your build is stable by running that case analyzer thing in escribe.

    I also find that for best results. It is necessary to vape a new coil in wattage for a few minutes and then let it cool back down to room temp before using it in TC.

    The ohm rating changes from fresh coil to used coil somewhat

    When you take the tank off to refill hit the fire button a couple of times with the atty off when you reinstall it the mod should ask you if it is a new coil.

    I have escribe downloaded, but have never messed with it, I keep telling myself it's time to become somewhat familiar with it, but, ah, you know how it goes. :)

    The documentation is really bad, the interface is like 90's scientific equipment software.

    Well, I'm kinda a 90's tech era guy, so maybe we'd get along. :)

    That’s how I felt about Escribe exactly, once on its pretty easy on some things, others I haven’t a clue what they are :p

    Do you go in, make your changes, then plug your mod in? Then what?

    First, plug in your device, then upload Escribe, then download the latest firmware, make whatever changes you want, then click on upload to device.

    I'v all ways said Evolv should post a bunch of YT videos, to show how to use the E-Scribe.
    Don't know why they Don't?
