What is a DNA board?
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 vape setups.
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:
- 2010 – The Darwin: the first variable wattage device to ever hit the market.

What is the EScribe software?
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.
