Evolv is at it again with another version of their famous DNA chip.  The DNA75 is more of a revision to the DNA200 chip than it is a new design; it is not meant to replace the DNA200, just accompany it to give modders more options.

Firing up to 75 watts and outputting up to 35 amps, this chip works with a single cell battery source instead of a three cell battery source.  This allows modders to design their boxes around the more popular 18650 or 26650 batteries instead of requiring a LiPo or an awkward three 18650 battery arrangement.  Don’t get me wrong, the Reuleaux DNA200 is a fantastic mod, but not every modder wants to be forced to use these options and not all users want to maintain a marriage of three batteries.

Just like the DNA200, this chip will still have all of the same awesome temperature control features as well as the ability to use their EScribe software for further customization.

The first box slated to use the DNA75 chip is the HCigar Vi75.  It will require a single 26650 battery and will be available in red and black finishes.  Stay tuned for more information.

My name is Kyle and I have been vaping for almost a year now. I started vaping to kick my 9 year smoking habit and got hooked on trying to get the best flavor out of my atomizers. I am a software developer living in upstate NY and in my free time I like to write shoegaze and dream pop music.

    This mod just looks great. Compat. Like the battery door. 75W is just enough. For every day regular vaping seems like perfect.

    Too bad it doesn’t stack up to vapers needs/wants like the Hohm Slice, it’s a beautiful little piece of kit really and the higher amps with the 26650 battery will be nice. I just can’t see trading in the various temp control settings, especially the SS variations along with 3x quick charge you will get with the Hohm Slice for the sheer prettiness of this unit…unless there’s a really huge price incentive to put the cherry on that DNA chip, then I just don’t get it. For me, the lack of SS temp control is a deal breaker.

    • That’s one thing I love about vaping, it’s very personal and everyone has their preferences. I agree that the Hohm Slice has a more innovative chip, but what I like about the DNA75 is the availability of the board. I don’t care too much about the HCigar Vi75, but I personally would love to see a JMFD DNA75 box mod. Many high-end modders decided to avoid the DNA200 due to the 3-cell battery requirement and I believe with this chip, more of those modders will adopt this. Also, this chip will have SS TC capability as well, you will just have to import the TCR curve using the EScribe software (free) in the form of a CSV file which can obtained from steam-engine. It’s similar to having an adjustable TCR value like the RX200 and other similar devices but can be more accurate since you’re using a graph of TCR points along a series of temperatures instead of just a single data point. But like I said, we all have our preferences 🙂

      • Clementhyme

        I agree! I actually like the DNA chips and I did completely ignore the fact that you can download SS TC through EScribe. JMFD’s are already pretty amazing, but with that upgrade they would almost be worth that $1000 price tag 😉 I have had my head in basic mods all week and apologize for ignoring the obvious…You guys are great at what you do, thanks for setting me straight. 🙂

        • Thanks for kind words, we really appreciate it!! I’m glad I was able to clear things up for you.
