    Mine is crooked, there is not doubt. I have about 15 devices and my Kayfuns sit straight on everything except my cana. Honestly though it doesn't bother me, just wanted to point it out. It is only noticeable on taller toppers. It's not crooked enough that you really even notice with a dripper installed.

    In regards to the Cloupor hana clone catching fire / burning out / frying:

    Has there been any reports of this happening without a flush-center-pin atty attached?

    The ones I have seen are tied more to the resistance being too low than to shorting.

    Just to be as specific as I can the device I have is not from Cloupor. It's a Fasttech HANA MODZ Pack DNA 30 Style Mod VW Modules. Received it yesterday and installed it into the box. So far the only difference I can tell between the Evolv DNA 30 and this one is coming out of sleep.

    On the Evolv as it comes out of sleep it briefly displays the splash screen then immediately will display the watts & ohms of the last attached atomizer but on the Fasttech board it displays the splash screen then the watts however the ohms is always 0.0Ω until the next fire or after a couple seconds if I hold the fire button down. It's almost as if the Evolv board has memory to maintain the ohm settings but the Fasttech doesn't.

    Is this the same problem I've read folks reporting multiple fires to wake? Mine doesn't actually take multiple fires but it will take a few seconds to fire if I just hold down the fire button coming out of sleep.

    If you paid with a credit card or paypal, you may want to dispute the charges.

    I have a v3 cloupor.

    I did a bit of research regarding the always red charge light.

    After charging for 8 hrs, battery bar showing full, my Sony VTC5 was charged to 4.19v. Close enough I figure. At least not over charged.

    The battery bar showed full after about 3 hrs. The Sony was at 3.42v when I started charging so the charge circuit is about 500 mAh.

    At least it stops short and doesn't over charge. Happy about that!

    The build was at .8

    Not shorted either. I guess I'll just have to write it off as a loss. Sucks, haven't had it in hand long at all.

    Issue: Clone DNA board is a bad "clone" of the real DNA board according to the makers of the real DNA. (Evolv)

    link starts at approximately 37:10 minutes into this video just put out by pbusardo interviewing Evolv and their factory.

    I have had the cloupor Hana Modz clone for over a month now. I have yet to have any issues. I put a good battery in it day 1 and haven't removed the cover since. I charge it every night overnight. No issues at all.

    Yep... they evaluated and tested the clone chipset and verified it was no where near a real DNA30 thus it is an issue prospective clone purchasers need to be aware of imo... I can't think of anybody more qualified to point out this issue than those who designed and developed the DNA.

    Really wonder why they would say something like that?
    One reason might be it's hurting there sales but I would have no idea....maybe someone with a vested interest with evolv would know more about it??

    I don't want to defend the CNAs and I'm sure they are not as good as the DNAs, but I have to admit that John's response to PBusardo's question about the CNAs left me somewhat unsatisfied. I had expected John to point out the deficits much more specifically.

    Totally agree, I'd really like to see these side by side on a scope and more objective data and less opinions. I have a true Evolv DNA 30 box mod and just recently received the Fasttech board and from a vaping experience I cant really tell a difference. If I only had a scope I'd do a side by side but I don't :( tried using the sound card oscilloscope but it doesn't work with DC so that was a no go.

    A scope would give you the numbers but in the end you say a side by test you can't tell a difference. For me does it give me a vape I want is more important than what the number say or don't say

    That's not what I was trying to say. From the many posts here on the Cana mods, it seems clear that they may well be suitable to generate vapor. What I had hoped John might have been able to clarify is whether there are safety issues in the circuit or some other issues that would create a hazard. So I thought that was a missed opportunity to tell us what precisely is the issue with the bad copies. John is clearly a bright guy, but he was having a hard time answering the question in a decisive way.

    I see, perhaps I read into your statement more than you intended, sorry for that. I think were on the same page though. I mean if i were Evolv and had evaluated & tested the clones I would certainly have objective data to present to the public regarding the performance, safety, reliability, stability etc..

    Now I also understand they may not want to release such data themselves for business, legal or other reasons I may be unaware of. But it seems to me there's always leaks of this type of information when there's a benefit to a company or is detrimental to a competitor. And from what John stated they surely have objective data from a scope and I would have expected to have seen a long time ago if there were serious safety risks.
