    Hi steve,

    Been running the case analyzer for awhile now. Just a few more questions:

    1. At the beginning of the test, is it an absolute must to get an accurate reading of the room temp?

    And

    2. Say i use your settings with the case analyzer set, would it matter say if you live in a colder climate and i apply the same settings and im in a warmer climate?

    Just my ocd kicking in but i think i misread the reading on the mod screen (it read 86°f and i put in 88°f).

    1. The more accurate you set the room temperature, the more accurate the test will be. .
    2. That won't matter. The case thermals are just seeing how long it takes the case to heat up and cool down. I ran mine when it was around 70F here.

    If it was me, I would load my ecig file and you can then run the test, if you want to. That way you would have all the profiles, mod resistance, custom screens, custom theme, etc.

    Cheers,
    Steve

    For the Case Analyzer -- am I just supposed to click the "START" button when it comes up and let it run?

    Put in the room temperature and then click on the Start button. You don't need to click on record. I like to have the mod at room temperature when I start the test. I've found it takes 3-4 hours to run it. When it's finished, click on Accept. After that don't forget to click on Upload Settings to Device to save your results to the mod.

    PS Have the battery between 1/4 to 1/2 charged before starting the test.

    Cheers,
    Steve

    Thanks. I didn't have a thermometer right next to where the mod was running the case analyzer, so I just used the upstairs temp which was at 70. Hoping that doesn't make much of a difference if the temp downstairs was different. I will post an image of the results once done (it is still running, in the cooling stage).

    Kind of odd then for the tool to ask for room temperature if it can determine that from the mod itself.

    Running the test helps the mod to be able to determine what the temperature of the room is. I wouldn't necessarily trust that temp number before I ran the test. I use the actual temp of the room. I make sure the mod hasn't been used for awhile (I like to run mine before the mod has been used that day if possible). I also try to have it in a stable area (not in front of a heat vent, fan, etc)

    Cheers,
    Steve

    At one time or another I've owned every device Volcano has made. Been using them almost exclusively since late 2010. With the exception of the Inferno, I have never had to replace one. I have a lavatube that has gone swimming in at least 10 different rivers (accidents while fishing and rafting), covered several thousand trail miles, and skied uncountable mountains, along with all the other stuff that life has thrown at it. It's been replaced by lavaboxes, but still works like a champ. Their design, materials, and build quality are quite high.

    That's dirt cheap. The Blood Red is the only DNA75 I own. I prefer the DNA200/250 chips, but couldn't resist the BR LB75. I think you will like it! :cheers:

    I receive E-Mails from them and $56 is the price the E-Mail says it's on sale for as well. That's still a great price imo (I paid more for mine :eek: :teehee:)

    The battery door is Aluminum like the mod. The grip on the door feels like some type of plastic/rubber.

    Cheers,
    Steve

    Edit I was thinking about my Lavabox DNA200's. On the 75, the battery door is just the rubber/plastic grip with a possible second layer of some type in the inside middle where the label is as illustrated in a later post. Sorry for the mix-up/faulty information.

    I did not know it was aluminum underneath, good to know. I love my Lava box 75 but I have had some magnet trouble. They tend to pop out but nothing a little glue won't fix. This happened on all three that I have owned. The first two had board related problems but volcano replaced them, all have / had the magnet problem.

    ive got one of those needle application bottles of super glue. ill run it along the outside of each magnet as soon as i get them.

    or... if they can be pryed out maybe a dab of jb weld is in order.

    I'd like to see how that turns out. I do really like the feel of the rubber though.

    Well I have to take that back about it being Aluminum. I was thinking about my Lavabox DNA200's. The grip screws onto the Aluminum. On the 75 it seems like the battery door is just the grip. Although it may have some sort of second layer on the inside middle where the writing /label is. Sorry about the mix up :facepalm:. TBH I don't use the 75 much. I mostly use my dual 18650 DNA mods and the Lipos every once in a while.

    As for the magnet on the 75, I must be lucky because my Blood Red's magnet is holding up fine. Then again it doesn't get heavy use.

    This is what I was thinking about when I first answered the question. On the Lavabox DNA200"s (3s Lipo) mods there is a battery door made out of the same Aluminum as the mod. The rubber /plastic grip then screws on the mod. You can see the back piece on the two 1300mah extender kits I have that are still unopened. I just finished getting my stuff unpacked on Monday. Again sorry for the mix up.

    no worries partner. honestly the grips were $3 each and i would have gotten them anyway. thanks for the info. im going to refinish one of the grips even if its plastic. i sorta like the idea of slimming the device down a mm or two. seems the grip is the widest point on all three sides it covers. got the red and blue grips. ill probably modify both of them. or just make a mess. either way it should be fun.

    so the mod should arrive saturday and the extra grips on monday. more to come on the modifications to the grips.

    i guess i need to DL escribe for mac. can you get into escribe and check out the interface before attaching a device? id like to familiarize myself with escribe before my mod arrives. ive got a feeling that ill be creating a bunch of profiles.

    where can one fine profiles from other users that are DLable online?

    I don't have it in front of me but I'm pretty sure you have to have your mod plugged in. As far as files go, I've been using @Wingsfan0310 on all my DNA's and they work perfectly. If it's ok with Steve, I can send them over to you.

    Check the evolv forums for a tutorial.

    Yes, you can run it and you'll see a 'Edit New Settings' section. Choose the 75 and have at it. Make sure you set Options>User Interface to Manufacturer so you get all the options.

    I'm not sure about the Mac version (My PC is a Windows machine), but on the Windows version you can check out Escribe without a mod hooked up. As a matter of fact you can load an Ecig file and check out all the settings, screens, etc.

    I have no problem with you sharing the Ecig file my friend. For that matter, I think I have it posted here. I have no problem sharing with fellow vapers. If it helps someone out, it's all good with me. :cheers:
    Link to my Therion 166, Triade250, VT133, Lavabox M DNA 75, and VF133 ECIG Files

    Cheers,
    Steve

    PS I have to change the file extension here to .pdf from .ecig because .ecig files aren't supported here. If you can't figure out how to change it back either @skt239 or I can Email it to you with the .ecig file extension. Just PM one of us your Email address.

    my lavabox m arrived last night and first impressions are very good. the mod itself is pretty damn nice. i do see why some may say it feels cheap. i believe this is because the battery door/grip is plastic. BUT it does not seem cheap to me. yes the grip being aluminum also would be nice, but this device is solid. does not feel cheap to me at all.

    now about the chip... it took me a min to understand navigating the menus. probably because im used to the joyetech menus. took me a min to to understand that you dont turn this chip off like with other devices. you just simply lock it. it turns itself to an off state after so much time of no use. this is ok, but i have a feeling it will activate in my pocket a lot. yes itll be locked, but even coming on in a locked state uses the battery.

    so i got it into SS316 mode and i gotta say... i could tell how much nicer of a chip this was over the joyetech stuff the first second i fired it. instant power. not much ramp up at all and this was at 20watts. i have not DL’d escribe yet, but plan on doing so today hopefully. i am quite busy, but will try to work it in. so for now im getting quite a nice vape. you can just feel the quality here and i love it. cant wait to really set up some curves and dial this chip in.

    oh questions about adding logos and stuff to the display... how hard is it? lol. what type of file is needed for this? im a graphic designer and want to get creative here.

    EDIT: Another question... my lavabox m came with a decent user manual, but i feel like it only explains the minimum in regard to the chip. is there a downloadable manual available from Evolv on their chips? one that explains all functions in detail?

    The display is 128 x 32 (that's the size you want to make your custom screens).
    The display is in monochrome so you want to make your screens in Black and White. You can cut and paste color screen with varying degrees of success (it will turn dark colors into black and light colors into white). On my Ecig profile I set up 7 different TC profiles, 1 for Power Mode (each with it's own custom screen), custom theme, etc. Hope this helps!

    Cheers,
    Steve
