    lol never thought I'd be here asking for help but hey I do need help.

    I have a dna200 box and I want to set it up for temp with n80 claptons. their 0.20 ohms pure n80 wire.

    now I vape with this setup on a mech mod but want to use temp mode with my box. I have no idea where or what to adjust. normally I just run the box in VW mode but the dna200 chip really shines in TC mode. can someone help me set it up? I can upload a file if need be or something just let me know. I have advance PC skills so that isn't an issue.

    I know that a lot of DNA mods are coming preset with nichrome profiles but as far as I know, nichrome doesn't TC.

    I use Escribe, in order to find the settings I like. I prefer to use SS 316L. However, it might work for you as well. First, you need to use a N80 profile. Then you can tweak it to your preference by having hooked up your mod to Escribe. Having your mod hooked up to Escribe, go to the device manager tab, look at the temperature curve, take several drags, and adjust accordingly. The goal is to get the curve as close to the temperature setting as possible. It won't be a straight line, but with the proper tweaks, you'll get it curving in the range you like it to be.

    Managed it on the N1 pro that can TC NI80 ok just not sure how to do it in DNA though must admit gonna need TCR around 0.00012 - 0.00015 for Nichrome I believe

    Wingsfan sent me all his DNA profiles a while back NI80 wasn’t on the list at the time

    can you send me the profiles?
    my dna200 box has custom ones from the previous owner. not sure how to change or remove them. I don't understand TC except those who use it say it's awesome. I have a few hohm tech boxes and TC there works great I'd sure like to get the same results with a dna200 mod. I do have SS claptons as well but there 0.14ohms. I'm not sure if I'll be draining the battery more with 0.14 vs 0.20....obviously with a mech 0.14 will drain the battery again which I'm tired of. love the vape from it hate the battery life I have parallel boxes but I want to use the dna200 box. plus I plan on getting a custom dna250 box soon.

    Assume you know how to use escribe profiles as you will need to adjust them inside as he had them as stock values - might be worth watching a vid guide if not

    Don’t mind sending you them at all (I’ll remove all his details first) PM me email

    Would be good to get his blessing first before I farm out his profiles @Wingsfan0310

    I just moved from Michigan to Pennsylvania a couple of weeks ago. It's been crazy busy from me this year. I'm hopeful things will settle down now that the move is finally completed and I'll be able to spend more time here.

    @KingPin! I have no problem with you sharing the profiles my friend. Heck, I've posted Ecig files here that have the profiles so I have no problem with sharing. If they help fellow vapers, it's all good with me.

    As for TC'ing NiChrome, I'm under the impression the TCR is too low to do on a DNA chip. The same goes for Kanthal. IIRC the DNA chip only TC down to a TCR of ~.0008. It measures changes in resistance as the coil heats up to know what Temp the coil is at in conjunction with the TCR. I think under .0008 TCR the changes are so small that it can't be read accurately. Keep in mind this is going ion memory and the bottom line number could be + or - a touch. I've used SS316L, SS317, SS304, Ni200, Ti01, and NiFe with good results in TC. My favorite TC wire however is SS430 I get from Unkamen.

    :teehee::giggle: Thanks for the kind words KingPin. I'm still unpacking all my vaping gear and trying to get stuff organized. It's a royal PITA packing up everything and moving out of state. I'm hoping to have everything setup soon, but I'm not holding my breath lol.

    Cheers,
    Steve

    So got the battery all setup, uploaded a few of your profiles. Honestly I'm not impressed with VW mode. Maybe it's a placibo effect for me but, vaping on a single mech mod just taste and feels better with a fully charged 650. Now I did try tc with SS claptons and it was smooth but I still don't feel it like I do with those same SS claps on a mech.

    And I thought it was just me. I have more than a few TC devices (4 or 5 of them are DNAxxx models), and just haven't been able to hit that sweet spot for TC. All of my DNAxxx devices are currently set to wattage mode, as well as my other TC capable devices.

    Same here. Been playing with DNA tc, always go back to power. Next build I'm going to do a single wire or twisted build to see if tc works better for me with a simpler build.

    The custom profiles sent need honing I had to play around with the settings wingsfan sent me to tailor it to my liking ie increase the length of time of the preheat as well as increase the wattage output ...it does take some time to dial it in unfortunately

    Best bet is to change settings take a few vapes see how you get on and fine tune it as you go
