    They were going to have a lot of different skins for it. I have no idea where you would get them though.

    Fasttech has them all listed as OOS or discontinued, I guess they were not a big seller.

    TC and resistance reading on both my Captain's work fine. Must be a QC issue.

    I was having issues with version 1.3. Wrong ohm reading with SS316L. I build a 0.50 resistance and while my old mod was reading the values correctly the captain shown 0.38-0.40 ohm. After updating the mod to version 1.5. I switched on the device and It was reading 0.53 ohm. So the reading is correct now. Great job IJOY!.

    Too bad TC still does not work and the Captain will fire full power if there is a TCR issue with your build. Also the TCR M1/M2 values still only go to 200 and it will reset back to power mode from M1 or M2 TC mode when take out the batteries.

    But yes, they did appear to get the Captain to read resistance correctly.

    Baby steps... A properly functioning APV is foreign territory for iJoy. :lol:

    Maybe they are working on it?. Let's wait for the next software update to see if this issue gets fixed. Honestly I have only been vaping for a year and I have the captain with a dual coil Ammit atomizer but I always use power mode. I have never tried temperature control :p

    Then you will probably never see an issue with any of the firmware. Power mode for the most part just works, you bump it up to where you like the vape. :) :thumb:

    Ok. After updating to 1.5 I have a bigger problem!!. My resistance shows correct ohms, but the Volts do not correspond with the power!. I have a 0.50 ohm resistance and when vaping at 35W it shows 5.67 volts and it is currently burning with bad taste!. Do you know if firmware can be downgraded???

    I've had no problems with either of mine. No problems with the Gen 3 either. I guess I'm just fortunate.

    Yes, in both. I try several different tanks and RDAs on all of my mods to see what the difference is in resistance, volts, amps, and wattage. Some mods hit harder than others, in my case, especially the Steampunk Nano 120. The resistance is only off by maybe .03 at most. My Smok 2/4 was giving me the "do not push your safeties" warning everyday since I got it but that glitch went away soon after. I've just come to realize that no matter what piece of electronics it is, there is going to be an issue. As long as my batteries are good I'm not going to strip my mods apart to look for a possible fault. If it don't work then I send it to the manufacturer.
    Backups for the backups.

    Yeah, I learnt that with these RDTA Box, though I still really, really, really hoped that the Captain would be different.

    Is there any changelog to those updates? There is no real reason to update if there is nothing new than the versionnumber....
