    Evolv is not a repair service for mods. They are a chip manufacturer period. Its a lost vape mod. Thats who you should have dealt with. Yes they built the board and if you had just the board I would bet they would repair it. Why would they take a mod apart and repair it if they didnt build it.

    i remember you from my other thread .i did try to get mine apart so i could replace the board [BMIC also failed] but couldn't figure out how to remove the 510 which is mandatory ,oh well
    you do realize all of Evolv's electronics are and have been made in China,assembled here ??
    although i have China mods 4-5 years old that are still working

    i am going a different route now,just ordered all the parts to make my own PWM mod

    Really i should post the emails from Evolv stating that unless my mod was under warranty there was nothing they would do for me,that also includes pointing me in the direction to find somebody to pay to fix the mod !!!!

    but posting emails publicly is not a cool thing to do

    I totally understand your position to a point, I just think your blaming the wrong place. Evolv doesnt have to fix things out of warranty and its not there place to find you a repair center. Especially since they did not build the mod. All they did was supply a board to a company. Sure, they may have repaired the board if you just sent the board. I would be more upset with lost vape and even they wouldnt have to deal with it out of warranty.

    I hear you.
    In the past have bought plain vv boards and made a few dual 14500 mods with volt meters .
    Several years back bought hcigar nano mod 75watt evolv board opened it up to see the engine(board) inside
    anyways with that board its easy to replace from my other 75w boards if i like that particular case .
    If i recall the 510 connector would stay but its wire has to be unsoldered from connector or the board and said to myself i could replace board with another same board if stopped working.
    It will not stop working after using for 2 years.
    Good luck with what you decide.

    What mod is this again?

    Do you realize that the boards are manufactured in Illinois, some chips are manufactured in Texas. And a few components are manufactured in China. And it is assembled in Ohio. So a large part is mostly made in the US.

    Brandon (of Evolv) had a bit of trouble in one visit to China. As they asked him why he was there. And he said to sell US electronics to China. And they said, oh you mean to buy Chinese electronics for the US. He said no, he really means selling US electronics to China. :lol:

    I have had tons of Chinese mods that still work that are over 4 years old now. I only had 2 I think failed. One was a Vamo clone and the brass 510 threads wore out in 30 days. And one Smok board lost its boost regulation. The vendor replaced it with a M65 v2 which hardly nobody knows about and still works even today.

    The problem of course with those Chinese boards are that TC is horrible and wattage regulation is iffy at best. And since their efficiency is so low, battery life sucks! Who could live with that? I definitely can't. As I know their are boards that can do so much better than that.

    Why PWM? They pulse when you fire them. And makes that rattlesnake sound. And your vape is uneven and you can tell the wattage is jumping up and down. Gosh I hated those mods. Luckily they are rare today.

    The newer PWM's dont hum anymore. They cycle above 25K now so you cant here them. I just finished a couple. Pretty fun to play with. The older ones did s... though

    Oh it is even a squonker to boot. Yeah I don't know either how to get that 510 off. But normally you just unsolder the wires from the board and don't have to take off the 510. Maybe that one the 510 has to be removed first. :unsure:

    Ah okay. Then I apologize about all of those bad things I said about PWM. Sorry, I didn't know. :blush:

    They have changed a lot over the past few years. Pretty reliable also but lets be real, there still for power and not finesse.
