    I was presently surprised with the DNA 75 runtime using a single 25R.

    I'm guessing because 26650's have higher amp ratings and more capacity.

    Well one of the Plumes guys mentioned a sled in their video

    TBH Mike I wouldn't think this is out of bounds as it's not the board and they are not going to sell the mods we got.

    You are probably right. I am just careful not to say anything they dont explicitly give us permission to, unless it is already in the public domain. AT least that is how I read the NDA, but that was a couple years back. I just dont want to jeopardize being in on the next one, the DNAXYZ3000! I like this gig!

    Not Really! most 26650 have lower amp ratings than 18650, check out Mooch's threads
    I have a 26650 mod it's a total disappointment, huge battery, takes twice as long to charge and only last 20% longer max :(

    Just putting a sled in the ERM, not very convenient If you have to remove those long screws every time?
    I guess those long screws could be easily replaced with magnets?

    Thats my real life experience with them so far.
    I.e. the view isnt worth the climb.

    But Lipo, yeah, I get a god's eye view there. Been vaping exclusively on this 5000mAh DNA75 ERM+ for 12 hours,and it is only down 11% on the battery meter.

    Remember, these are beta mods, not production mods. They went with what they already had rather than design a new enclosure for the beta testing. They also hinted at forcing us to use the chargers and test them out, otherwise everybody would just swap bats.

    I've never used 26650s but I've seen them with higher amp ratings and higher capacities than any 18650. I don't vape high wattages so I've never explored them.

    I understand for a beta tester it would be fine, not for an everyday driver though :(
    Swapping batteries is the big advantage to 18650, it's the only advantage IMO over lipo's

    I never used a Lipo until the DNA 200 came out. I can't see going back to the 18650s now. I like the Lipo so much I am thinking of pulling some old DNA 40s off the self and putting Lipos in them.

    Been using them since the DNA20, any mod intended for myself has a Lipo.

    I get what your saying, I am real happy with Lipo batteries too :) Most of Us following these threads have many mods and don't care about charging via usb, the advantages of lipo's out way the hassle of plugging in your mod for a few hours.
    I'm just thinking of a good reason to want a new 75 watt DNA. For me a small stealthy mod with an easily changeable battery seems like a good reason :)
    IMO this would also make it way more appealing to a mass market, who may only own 1 or 2 mods :)
    If I'm going to buy a new 75 watt board, build a mod & put a lipo in it. does it make sense not to just buy a DNA200?

    I'm not good enough with the Cad programs but I'd like to see the Aspire Plato design modified for a DNA75 up-sized to fit an aromamizer inside the mod in place of that abortion of a tank that Aspire used. About same height 26-28mm thickness, about the width of a Nebox, elongated tank, chimney & glass to protrude from top of mod, base of tank modified so it would screw in like a Nebox atty base, picking up the atty + on a second set of threads embedded in the base. Probably be easier to mount a 22mm 510 inside and just have the aromamizer in a drop well extending out the top.

    A few battery venting videos & this legislation is going to be real hard to fight!
    The way they can portray it is your carrying a Bomb :(
