    I've got VapeMail!

    Received a VaporShark rDNA today. Wow! When I received the VaporShark DNA30 I couldn't believe the size. Will the rDNA is not that much bigger! Maybe they should have called this the "VS 110%"!


    It has the same heft and feel of the VS DNA30, just a little larger. Weighs in at 6 5/8 oz (188g) and is sized about half way betweenthe DNA30 and the Clouper clone. The case is well constructed with tight fitting joints.

    The case design is a scaled up VS DNA30 including larger buttons, which are very comfortable, with the differences including the USB port on one side of the case and the battery cover on the other side.

    The battery is removed by removing one screw and sliding the cover the cover off - the cover is a very precise fit. The battery is a very tight in the case and the one negative about the device, the positive terminal of the battery goes to the bottom of the case. The opposite of most devices!

    I didn't see a light port for charging status, plugged in the USB charging cord and the charging light is the ring light around the firing button! Cool.

    Sure wish I could have gotten a Sharkskin at the same time!

    Here are a couple of quickly taken photos.

    Looks great! That's probably as compact as you can go with an 18650 as far as box mods are concerned.

    Now I'll just have to wait till vendors here in Canada start selling them ... with a $50-60 markup. LOL

    Looks great!

    I've been thrilled with my Vapor Shark!

    I'm actually surprised that the VS doesn't seem to get the attention of the Hana mod, or some other DNA mods... It is superbly well built, battery life even on the DNA 30 is excellent, and it's held up very well!

    I use my DNA30 about 85% of the time now, and the newness and novelty have worn off... it's just a great device!

    Congrats! I'm (slightly) envious!

    I will be buying one of these. Love the size compared to the hana, I'm sooooo glad they were unavailable when I was trying to get one.

    I bought the cloupor DNA30 and can't wait to replace it with one of these! I despise clones and felt dirty every time I used it. Plus it being off slightly really bothered me. Thankfully I picked up the vaporshark DNA30 shortly after.

    Wow, looks great! I think one will be replacing my cloupor (wanted to try DNA30 on the cheap) clone as soon as possible!!

    I got to say I'm really disapointed they decided to put the screen on the bottom. Seems like it would be the worst place to put it from a useability stand point.

    I worried about that too until I got their DNA30. I haven't once thought "wow I wish this screen was on the side". I just tilt my hand glance to the screen.

    Same here - it's not like we're adjusting it 800 times a day :)
    Set, lock power, and forget unless you make major changes in attys.

    I never look at it except to check the battery occasionally.
    Many box mods with screens right in your face are a big turn off to me.

    Hi
    Can you share what atty's and the type of builds you are using? I currently build to about 1.5-2.0 ohms on a variety of devices and seem to always be about 24-28 watts. I'd like to only have to vape around 15-17 but curious as to which build I should be using.

    Thanks!

    Once I have an atty on there I lock my wattage and put it in stealth mode. Your battery will last much longer if it doesn't have to power up a screen each time you take a pull. When I begin to wonder how much battery I have left I click five times to lock it and it shows the battery meter. If I want to switch attys or mess with the build it's simple enough to unlock it and change the settings to match the new topper.

    The biggest plus for me compared to their other models is the ability to easily replace the battery myself. The RDNA is on my short list for purchases right now. Wish they had put plus and minus terminals in the normal positions, and it was a VTC5 battery.

    Hi wind, Your builds seem a little hot to me. IMO not to many would enjoy 1.5-2 ohms at 24-28 watts which would require 6-6.5 volts. Maybe if you could tell us what toppers you are using, we could make some suggestions that might help.
