    I recently purchased a Splinter and I’m new to the mod world so I did some research before buying one. I ended up purchasing a Lost Vape Paranormal DNA250c as my very first mod and pretty much love everything about it. It’s soooo crazy efficient with the Splinter.

    However, it only fires for 10 seconds even after continuing to hold the fire button down. The screen continues to say firing but I can definitely tell there’s no heat being produced as I draw. If I pulse the fire button there’s no issue with vapor production as I continue a long draw.

    Is this the default behavior of this mod? Can this cutoff be tweaked in a menu somewhere or must it be changed via the Escribe software?

    Thanks to anyone that can help clear this up for me!!

    Awesome will do, I’m assuming this has to be loaded with Escribe?

    Yes it does if download and click should open up in escribe. Can check it out before you upload it to device. Let me know how it works :)

    Hey guys, I've just ordered this tool called "Focusecig Vapor Polish Jig" from fasttech >> https://www.fasttech.com/products/7462700

    Haven't tested it but I think it could be useful to maintain our 510 ports (male and female) on the long term. They tend to attract dirt and grime easily and those with brass or copper pins will develop oxides and contaminants films pretty fast, and those in turn will create contact resistance which is bad for proper TC operation.

    Another reason to dedicate one mod to one single attachment: once it's screwed in place, it reduces air contact and should slow down oxidation.

    But let's be honest, we would be better off without those damn 510 connectors. They are not very reliable and are the source of most problems we encounter. And I'm still convinced we can achieve more precise temperature regulation by using dedicated sensors rather than just extrapolating temperature by reading tiny resistance fluctuations.

    It looks interesting I'm a little scared with hands when i saw you use a drill. Let me know how it works. My spinner/heatsink is wearing out so need look into something else :(

    I dont think that jig is for cleaning the threads... Pretty sure is to screw onto either male or female thread, and then insert into a drill. Allowing the item to be spun and pollished! As per the pucture above, nothing to do with cleaning the threads as far as I can see
    :peace:

    Humm after looking at it again I think your right that this is for more for just polishing the mod body itself. Not for cleaning the threads. Makes more sense now why you need a drill and polish for it.

    Might make a good mod internal resistance calibration tool for DNA devices?

    Haha you are both right. I found it while looking for a 510 shunt to calibrate mods internal resistance, and it was so cheap I thought I'd give it a try (but really pure copper shunts should be better, they just cost more)

    Then I didn't really thought too much about the cleaning part. I imagined I could put some mildly abrasive polishing paste/compound on the female part of the tool and screw my attachments in, to polish the male 510 threads. Afterwards I would just clean the stuff up with ISO and cotton.

    For the mod 510 female threads I would hesitate to do that as it would be harder to get everything off in the end. Could work though... or not at all!

    But indeed it seems it's absolutely not what the tool is meant for! My bad, it's a bit embarrassing... :rolleyes:

    PS: @HerbieVonVapster there's also the same option to calibrate mod IR inside AF advanced settings

    Thanks have to check it out. The sur_evic has a shunt setting whats it called in AF?

    Naw just shows you human. Explains why I couldn't wrap my head around it. Plus now you will have the prettiest shiniest mods on here :)

    Go to "Advanced" tab and you'll find "Internal resistance" which defaults to zero ohm. It's right under "Shunt correction" which allows to correct poorly calibrated ohm-meters (internal to the mods that is, i.e the shunt resistance) Say if you have a mod that reads everything too high compared to all your other mods, you could use that second parameter to correct the readings.

    I'm getting ready to pull the trigger on a Joyetech Espion from Fastech. It's got a pretty nice size color screen and I hear works really nice with Red Panda.

    The smoant cylon is also available from fastech for $2 more. It looks almost identical and has a much better TC chipset.

    I didn't see that one on the ArcticFox supported device list. Just Joyetech, Eleaf and Wismec. I'm kind of hooked on setting up different profiles for each of my atomizers or vaporizers. I'm a noob with mods and want to keep things as simple as possible for myself. What does the better chipset do?

    That's correct, AF is only for Joytech, Eleaf, Wisemec. I'm a noob all over again as i've been out of the ecig vape scene for about 4 years. From my understanding Mid level and high end DNA devices have better chipsets ( the brains of the device ). Flashing the firmware with AF allows entry level mods with "ok" temp control to function more like higher end devices.

    Here's a great in depth review for both devices.

    Has any one found a workaround for an overheating rolo r200s? It never skipped a beat when using with ejuice, but it overheats very quickly when run with our 510 attys. I have found that it can just about get to temp in the cruise mode of the tubo software with my dcg2 before the board hits 70° and it shuts down. Cells etc. Still cool to the touch at that point too.

    Luckily i have a dna mod too, which never overheats, but it also doesn't offer the same software flexibility that some flashable mods do!

    Nice. I was actually looking at the Espion Infinite and other Espion models the other day. The Smoant Cylon looks really nice. As a huge BSG fan, I think I'd get that one if I knew better what I was doing with mods - if nothing else just because it kind of looks like a mod that crew members would use on the Galactica.

    As a noob, it feels like the better option for me at this point is to stick with a mod that is commonly used here and on FC. I especially love the profiles that you can setup in AF/RP. Kind of makes it dummy proof for me, which I have begrudgingly realized I need right now. Maybe I'm just getting too old for this shit. :) Now if the Smoant Cylon or Espion Infinite support profiles, then they might just work for me.

    @Megaton: I guess you got your answer, don't use cruise mode! ;)

    That gimmick junky Espion Infinity is a dumbass led light show,
    the good one my buddy had me hit is this one I ordered, looks & works great. With Red Panda Flash (AF Color Ver.) it is really nice.
    Like the smoant_cylon also nice for the money.
    thx for your experience

    I will be happy when I can get one that supports Red Panda with a nice large touch screen on one side and a bluetooth speaker on the other side (as long as the speaker isn't crap).

    I just got a Think Vape Finder 250c that I plan to use for my Splinter and StemPod. Testing the Splinter atm:

    I use heat sinks and insulation gaskets to reduce the heat and protect the 510 connections a little on all my mods with the Splinter and Stempod.

    A page of atomizer heat sinks :
    https://www.fasttech.com/search?atomizer heat sink
    And some gaskets
    https://www.fasttech.com/search?insulation gasket

    Some heatsink and atomizer combinations will sit with a small gap between them so I only really added the gasket to fill that gap to be honest. It varies a lot so you may not need one, or you might need to sand one down a little to make it fit perfectly (like I did).

    I think this manual and link list by @tennisguru1 is worth to also share here.
    For sure interesting for people who'd like to use Red Panda for their Sai, Sequoia, QQ or Triton and are looking for optimized settings for different buckets of each.

    Was researching smallest box mods and came across the Artery Nugget X. Its a 50W mod that does some TC. Its also super tiny! The battery suffers from the size obviously, i think its a 13650 1000mah? The dimensions are 55.5mm by 31mm by 22mm.

    I went ahead and purchased a used on off eBay just for the fun of it. Here it is with a Splinter, Modpod, and Sai atomizer. Pretty tiny...:lol:
