**Disclaimer, the following information is pieced together from the limited information we have been told by Evolv, along with a good helping of internet rumour. There may be inaccuracies, mistakes or complete fabrications**
Evolv are soon to release the long anticipated colour screen version of their 250 watt board the EVOLV DNA250C. While the name might suggest a 250w board with a colour screen, the 250C is actually much more than that boasting a peak wattage output of 400 watts if used with a 4s battery configuration and some interesting new features.
Due to some regulation or other, the USA version will have a slightly different output with a 3s battery configuration. As we understand, there is nothing that prevents either firmware being used regardless of geographical location or point of sale.
**RUMOUR UPDATE - The USA firmware is limited to 250w for 4s**
Usable as 2s, 3s or 4s
Button layout as DNA75C (Fire, up, down, select)
Charging current has been confirmed at 2a
Maximum input voltage is 16.8v
Maximum output voltage is 12.4v
Maximum output wattage 400w
Board dimension are slightly different. Most notably the board is 2mm wider.
A new feature called Replay has been mentioned by Brandon in the below video interview by DJLsb Vapes. Replay lets you in a sense record your perfect vape by selecting replay directly after having that vape then future vapes follow the same power profile.
So that’s what we know. On reflection the main points of interest for us with the DNA250C are the colour screen and the potential of the new replay feature, but most of all the extra watt hours that an extra cell provides. We’ll still vape day to day at our regular wattage of just a touch over 100w, but with a starting voltage of 16.8v for a fully charged 4s pack we expect a significantly longer run time from a single charge.
To compare using the watt hour calculator in Escribe, a 3s 1300mAh lipo works out @ 14.43Wh, and 4s 1300mAh @ 19.24Wh an expected increase of 33%. So expect to get a third extra usage using a similar mAh pack in 4s.
We’ve made an DNA250C enclosure that supports a 4s 2200mAh lipo.
4s / 2200mAh is a whopping 32.56Wh. So if you were a fan of our DNA250 enclosure that used a 3s 1300mAh @ 14.43Wh you can expect at least double the usage on a single charge.
