5 Ways To Get The Most From Reflex

5 ways to get the most from evolv reflex

Make most of your Evolv Reflex

You’ve got your Reflex and you’re loving it. Want to know how to keep it tip top?

Follow our quick and easy tips for getting the best from your Reflex below!

1: Choose the right liquid

Reflex works differently to every other vape device, tightly controlling aerosol particle size, airflow and temperature. User safety is a number one priority. The temperature of the coil and the aerosol produced is controlled to minimise the creation of unwanted byproducts.

Many eliquids contain components which only volatalise at a temperature where unwanted compounds are formed, such as acetaldehyde from overheated VG which gives off a sweet aroma or taste. Reflex minimises your exposure to these hazardous substances, and as such your usual liquid may not taste exactly the same.

2: Put the fill plugs in the right way !

This is absolutely crucial. Although relatively difficult to do, if the plugs aren’t facing the correct way, then the airflow and vape isn’t going to work quite the way that it should. Reflex utilises groundbreaking pressure and velocity analysis technologies, and putting the plugs the wrong way round means it isn’t going to deliver the power that you’re after. Again, nothing bad will ever happen, but you’re not going to have the best of all possible puffs.

3: Don’t overfill

Sounds obvious, but don’t put too much liquid in when you fill up the pod. As with all pod devices, if you overfill then there’s two possible unwanted things that can happen. Firstly, if there’s too much liquid in the pod, when you replace the fill plugs, the pressure may force liquid into the coil and cause a little flooding. This may escape through the inlets in the base of the pod, creating the illusion of a “leak”.

The second thing that can happen is that if there’s no room for a little air inside the pod, then what’s known as a “vapour lock” may occur. Wicking depends upon air pressure, and if there’s no air inside the pod then liquid may not flow as easily into the coil. This may potentially dry the coil and produce a weak vape. Don’t worry, you won’t ever get a dry hit, but your experience isn’t going to be the best that it can be.

4: Stay Tidy

Remember to mop up any spillages or condensate after every refill. We recommend gently dabbing any residue with a paper towel. This will ensure optimal performance and keep your Reflex in tip-top condition.

5: Keep the battery topped up

Reflex uses state of the art battery management and power delivery and is incredibly highly efficient. You’ll be surprised by how long it seems to go between recharge cycles, but there’s no harm in keeping it topped up where you can.

So if you’re near a computer or USB charger, why not give it a five minute charge when you can? Remember the device only takes roughly 40 -45 minutes to charge from completely empty, so you’ll be impressed with how much you can get in it on a cheeky little top-up charge.

Reflex: Easy to use, easy to look after!

That’s all there is to it!

Guide to Replacement DNA Screens

dna screen replacement
choosing the right DNA screen replacement

Choosing the correct replacement DNA screen can be a bit of a faff. Nowhere near as tricky as patting your head whilst rubbing your tummy, but there’s definitely a few things you need to be aware of.

Whilst the newer Evolv boards ( don’t call them DNA chips, you’ll be barred) share the same screens, some of the older DNA boards can have some confusing options. There’s DNA 60 small screen and large screen choices. Then there’s DNA 40 large screens and small screens. There’s DNA 30’s, DNA 75’s, 200’s and more. Working out which screen is compatible with which board can be a nightmare if you’re noob or simply not paying that much attention.

Trust me. I’ve  bought the wrong screen twice.

DNA Replacement Screens: A Visual

Here you can see the types of DNA replacement screens available. Not many, but enough to befuddle the mind of the modder. Let’s look at each one one in turn, find out what they are and which screen is the right one for your mod.

The screens:
  1. DNA 20 / 25 / 30 / 40 Small Screen*
  2. DNA 60 Small Screen ** 
  3. DNA 40 large / 60 large*** / 75 / 200 / 250
  4. DNA 75C / 100C / 250C

* Flex cable soldered to board

**Must have small screen DNA60 firmware

***Must have large screen DNA60 firmware

confused yet?

I am.

The Evolv DNA75C


“From a technology standpoint, and from an Evolv standpoint, everything we’ve done from wattage, in the beginning, has layered one thing on top of another,†says Brandon from Evolv. “Our goal is to solve the e-cigarette. We’re different from cigarettes in that way. Cigarettes are an agricultural product … these are engineered products, and with engineered products you can change them. Problem? Oh great, we can fix that.â€

So, here it comes: the Evolv DNA75C. It’s another layer on top of the products produced by Evolv, to take out the glitches and add in more usability & ease of function. The C in DNA75C stands for “colourâ€, obvious from the first glimpse at the large new colour display, but there’s more to it than that. “I almost wish we hadn’t put ‘colour’ in the name,†Brandon explains. “That’s not what’s really cool about this. We listen, we listen carefully.â€

What Evolv heard was that no matter how much people liked the DNA chips, they wouldn’t recommend them to new vapers or users looking for a simple experience. He added: “We wanted to take all the power and functionality of the DNA, which people love because it does temperature control extremely well, and make it simpler to use.â€

The big changes Evolv has made are all “under the hoodâ€, according to Vape Droid. The old 75 proved itself to be “a reliable, consistent and accurate chip. You can’t ask for much more than that.†So, rather than reinventing something, Evolv has implemented a series of tweaks to make what was good even better.

“It took the industry a long while to come over to wattage. It took them a lot less time to come over to temperature,†continues Brandon.

This is a massive leap forward in form and function that raises the bar for all boards. Power delivery has been improved, temperature control is more accurate and efficient. All of the chat on the Evolv forum points to the board being suitable for a single battery device, like the DNA75 before it. The board will have enough energy storage to preserve the clock through quick battery changeovers, but the device monitor will also correct the chipsets time whenever it connects to a device. Also, according to an Evolv forum admin, “if you use ECigStats, it will correct the time after it synchronizes with the device (if you have made one or more puffs since the last time you plugged in).â€

What we have ascertained, although no data has been released on the Evolv site yet, is that the screen is 160x80px. It will be able to operate in both orientations. At any time, it can hold up to three background images of any dimension. The chipset will accommodate any font; up to three different sizes, and they can be from different font families.

Escribe was recognised as being a brilliant advance at the time, but some didn’t get on with it – and Mac OS users didn’t have the option unless they ran it in a Wine app or a virtual engine. Casual vapers weren’t keen on hooking up to a PC either. Now the functionality has been put onto the board, so vapers can adjust settings on the mod itself.

Evolv’s “Theme Designer†is a second piece of software, separate from Escribe, designed to make simplicity the operational byword. It places the functionality on the device itself rather than by hooking it up to a computer, and everything is customisable.

It will allow everyone to adjust the background image, the fonts, the colours, logos, screen appearance all on the fly. While this will appeal to many, it doesn’t cover all of the advantages offered up by the new chipset. Should you wish, you can now change all of the menu systems so that you can change screen content, order, how they interact with each other and you can upload you own gauges to identify things like temperature, battery level and so on. It means the mod can have a menu that is as simple or as complex as the user desires – rather than being laid down by the chip manufacturer. Also, this means that individual mod producers can design devices with a unique experience for their customers.

Some vapers will be saying to themselves “hang on, this doesn’t sound simple at all. It sounds like I’m going to have to do a load of design work.†Good point, but no. Evolv are going to open up something they call ‘The Theme Park’. It will build on all of the work and community sharing that took place following the launch of the DNA200. Generous souls who want to show off their themes can upload them to Theme Park where others can look at them and, if they wish, download them in their entirety for use on their mods.

It comes with an extra select button, which can be seen in operation on Vape Droid’s prototype. While some might see this as added bulk, the Evolv admin explains: “It really does need an extra select button, when you get your hands on one you will see how easy it is to use, being able to change your resistance and preheat when you are out and about is awesome.â€
