    You’re right! Poor Vic is competing against the big boys in the vape reviewer scene – he needs something to draw in subs/likes/view counts.

    As long as he doesn't emulate VapnFagan to try and drum up more views. Fagan has really lost his mind.

    How many watts does one need to weld btw? I’m think of back in the day when they used to make laser pointer devices to put on ego batteries. 300w dc clearly isn’t any good for vaping. I wonder if there is anything it IS good for?

    I have one with a 2200 4S lipo and turned it all the way up. Never took a hit but I did pulse it a few times. Then I went into escibe and turned it down. I have no idea why the heck anyone would do it but I bet somebody already has.

    if you build for it it's not too bad. I regularly use 250-275 at home.

    According to the interviews before release, while in a suitable mod you could vape at up to 400W with it if that's your thing, the high power was implemented because of how replay works, to give it some headroom eg in cold weather (apparently they put mods in the freezer for tests).
    To replicate the draw you saved it may need a lot more power for a short period of time to accomplish that.

    There were people from day1 of the announcement that said "but who needs XXX Watts" and completely missed the point evolv were making.

    All the links on their site are broken (meaning they go nowhere!!). Has been like this for a while now, at least a month. Not very professional! They have a Facebook page if you have an account. Perhaps someone else can chime in with a contact address.

    Just email them. Their website is whacked out right now. It’s like their web admin quit halfway through.

    I don't recall any company taking back or repairing merchandise under warranty without proof of purchase, unless the product has a lifetime warranty (so date doesn't matter) or it came from Wal-Mart. I'd wager you wouldn't get anything different from any other company. If you want to see bad customer service buy a SMOK.

    Do you not still have the email from where you purchased it? I save all of my vape purchase emails in a special folder in my email. I have every one of them, back to my first purchase in Dec 2012.

    Also not sure how a dysfunctional lost vape site would have anything to do with evolv.
    Anyways, my guess is lost vape will want to know when and where the mod was bought as well, so even if you can contact them I don't think it would make a difference.
    If you don't have proof of purchase then I don't know what to say, even the very consumer oriented EU laws wouldn't do anything for you in that case.

    I understand it's very frustrating (been there, done that, got the tshirt) but at least take some responsibility. At the moment it seems you somehow think it's evolv's fault that you don't have a functioning mod.

    I just emailed lv last week about a mod out of warranty. I just told them I didn’t feel like sending it in and just needed parts to fix it myself. They said they’d find me the parts and get back to me. Easy peasy

    Yup, I said the very same thing. Although poor Chinese chip design and their poor programming drove me right back to Evolv. :blush:

    Actually, you want to go to the mining companies that sold the ore to make the metal to make the mod.

    TLDR: You don't know where or when you bought something and demand that a component maker fix it for you and are angry when they won't. So now you are going to hold your breath until you turn blue.

    I'm not going to bother with multi-quoting to spell whats wrong with your thinking

    you guys are really something else ,reading whatever suits your fancy into my issue !!
    LV site doesn't work as another member already stated

    Evolv REFUSES to do anything for me unless it is still under warranty ,that DOES also include me paying to have it repaired

    Look, I completely understand. I am even worse off than you. My first DNA200 failed over 2 years ago still under warranty and I could proof it. I sent an email to Evolv requesting an RMA back in June 2016. This was just months away from 8/8/2016 and I figured they were just too busy to keep up with everything and I didn't hear anything.

    Later two more DNA200 failed. Same problem, the dang BMIC (Battery Management IC) BQ76925 chip failed in all 3. I didn't bother with Evolv this time until they take care of the first one first.

    Now a few months ago, a 4th one failed with the same symptoms. This one wasn't a DNA200 though, but a 75C. Well a few weeks back, I guess Nick from Evolv heard me complaining about 4 DNA boards failed and wanted to help. We even talked on the phone and he said he would send me RMA numbers for all 4. Guess what? I still haven't heard a thing.

    Well I really have given up hope on Evolv fixing anything in or out of warranty for me. And like the story of my life goes, if you want something done right you have to do it yourself. So I ordered the parts and that is what I am going to do. :)

    Sure I was ticked off for awhile and left Evolv products. But those Chinese chips and firmware are unfixable even by me. So I came back to Evolv with my tail between my legs. :blush:

    Any failed DNA's I've had, after opening a ticket with Evolv I have found them to quickly respond and replace the board (in warranty) no questions asked. Nick has always been helpful and will answer any questions or concerns. Still have DNA 40's still chuggin along as well as DNA 75 with 70K puffs. For my 2¢ their QC is outstanding,
