400 Watts?! Why??!!

400 Watts! Why??!!
Good question. A box mod with the ability to safely deliver 400 watts of power does at first glance appear to be a little bonkers. In an interview with DJLSB, Brandon from Evolv (the manufacturers of the DNA 250C board for modders) said 400 watts was unvapeable.Why? Because he’d tried it. So why would he make a board that does such a thing? I mean, surely the “wattage race” of a few years ago is over, right?
Fortunately there’s a bit more to it than just wattage willy-waving though. The DNA 250C board is a remarkable piece of electronic engineering. It features not only variable wattage, temperature control (all pioneered and developed by Evolv) but also utilises the groundbreaking “Replay” function. This function will work with any temperature sensitive wire material (such as Stainless Steel 316L, Titanium and NiFe30). Dubious results with Nichrome (Ni80 / Ni90) can be achieved but it is not recommended, and unpredictable Kanthal (although a mix of 316L and Kanthal can be used) is definitely unadvisable. This feature allows the vaper to simply adjust their vape to taste using wattage, then when they’ve found the “sweet spot” click “Save” and the device will enter “Replay” mode. This will then deliver the same vape experience to the user over and over until the atomiser runs low on liquid. At this point the useful temperature limiting of temp control kicks in and prevents any nasty and unpleasant “dry hit”. So at the push of a button you have the same sweet spot vape again and again until either you battery needs charging or you’re out of liquid. It’s like some sort of pleasurable vaping Groundhog Day. And almost as cool as Bill Murray.
