If you are after a tailor-made vape experience, you can literally tweak and modify every aspect of your puff!
This list features our favorite 250C and 75C DNA-powered mods in the market right now. Keep reading for a brief history of the DNA board and our tips that will guide you in the right direction for learning how to use the EScribe software.
The Lost Vape Paranormal is a meticulously engineered DNA250C-powered mod. Constructed out of die-cast zinc alloy and using real leather for the battery doors (three configurations) and uniquely patterned resin or wooden side panels (four configurations). Capable of 200 watts with the use of two 18650 batteries.
Vapecige’s VTBox is a no-nonsense dual-18650 mod housing the DNA250C chip. Firing up to 200 watts, it is a sturdy and industrial-looking box mod constructed out of T6 aluminium alloy with an anodized finish. Not by any means a small device, the VTBox will easily fit 30 mm-diameter atomizers with no overhang.
The Triade is Lost Vape’s triple-18650 DNA250C-powered mod. Featuring a genuine leather battery door and symmetrically placed ventilation stripes, it has a futuristic but classy look. It is capable of firing at 300 watts while being one of the most ergonomic and comfortable to hold triple-battery mods in the market.
The first device to ever house the DNA75C chip, the Lost Vape Therion is still one of the best of its kind. Constructed out of die-cast zinc alloy and coming in a variety of color and material configurations, the dual-18650 Therion follows the design lines of the Paranormal in a lighter and slightly smaller package.
Think Vape’s Finder is made out of durable zinc alloy and features a leather battery cover, a stainless steel face plate and a 0.96” colored TFT screen. The Finder is ergonomically designed to fit three 18650 batteries — allowing it to fire up to 300 watts. The device comes in four color configurations.
Lost Vape’s Mirage is a stunning DNA75C-powered mod that can fire up to 100 watts with the use of a single 18650, 20700 or 21700 battery. Combining a durable anodized aluminum frame with a resin or wood-dyed accent body, it comes in five color options each with unique patterns and color combinations.
An oldie but goodie, HCigar’s update to the VT250 still has some tricks up its sleeve. Featuring interchangeable battery covers, the VT250S can be run either in dual- or triple-18650 mode. It houses the DNA250 chip, giving it a max of 167 watts in dual battery and 250 watts in triple battery configuration.
Evolv’s DNA boards are widely considered some of, if not the most accurate box mod chipsets available. Starting in 2012 with the Darwin, the first variable wattage device to ever hit the market, continuing with the introduction of temperature control with their DNA40 board in 2014, and introducing Replay mode with their DNA75C and DNA250C boards in 2018, Evolv has drastically shaped the way we use our vapes.
Evolv didn’t just invent the concept of temperature control, but is still after all these years considered the benchmark for TC performance. Simply put, if you are a TC vaper you need a DNA-powered device.
Here is a timeline with the highlights of Evolv’s history:
One of the most distinguishing features of the DNA boards is their customizability through the use of dedicated software. EScribe is by far the most advanced vape-related software available and allows for a very in-depth control over a wide array of parameters, from simple profile and theme creation to every imaginable vape experience micro-adjustment.
This 32-page manual by Evolv will get you started with EScribe – it was written with the DNA200 board in mind but most info will also apply to newer boards.
