    I agree with @Shit Snacks: DNA mods are a worthy investment. Compared to the three TC mods I've tried the DNA gives more consistent performance and reduces the risk of scorching and hot spots.

    Wattage mode with a cheap mod is still pretty impressive with the Splinter lineup, don't get me wrong. The DNA experience is a step up though for sure.

    It just takes a lot of test and guess work, with questionable accuracy (and even safety?) for use with heaters they were not designed for. Yes sur_myevic was designed for ecigs like arctic fox, while tubo_myevic does offer much more for our type of vaping though it was set up for Tubo heater (someone needs to get Ralph all these new vapes so he can give us some proper settings for them!)

    So this is just the case with the HSA steel mesh heaters found in Splinter and iHeat, with a simple coil like in the Imp you will actually be fine to run temp control with the Tubo as MistVape himself has played with it and even listed some suggested settings on his website. He may also start offering a mod with software already set up to use out of the box. So yes go Tubo for Imp, or if you want more mod choices I am sure Imp can do TC with surmyevic and arcticfox as well. DNA will just be more accurate?

    GLOW will not work in TC at all out of the box regardleless the mod and software since it uses kanthal coils, but you can swap in your own steel coils to then use it just like the Imp I presume. StemPod would be similar with its coil swaps too.

    Just got it and Mistvapes settings work fine ! I Feel like I am having more or less accurate temps.Convection extraction depends so much on airflow restriction combined to draw time it's difficult to tell exactly for the temps. But I feel I can go through a huge temp range without combusting and that's all that matters.

    Anyone brought one of these from sourcemore?

    I have found the TC is not working properly for my smoant naboo. Scortches my herb, although Wattage mode works. Same TC setting on my cylon work fine.

    Comes from china. I believe you would be stung with import charges on such a high value mod. Anyone got experiance?

    Quoting this here for anyone interested in this deal.

    The code doesn't seem to work for the P80 but does bring the V80 to $29.

    $66 for the bronze dna250 is the best price I've seen and just edges the price I paid with an ebay code a while back. The bronze dna, while bulky, works great with my Splinters.

    @oddjobold I ordered a Paranormal from that deal last week. I'll let you know how it goes once it gets here.

    Posted this in Splinter, but it should have been here...
    OK, I fucking give up. Just ordered the HCigar VT75D from AliExpress for $57 delivered after coupons.

    With the holiday and all I probably won't see it for a month or so but I had to get it ordered before you all talk me into getting more stuff I can't afford. I mean ya'll almost talked me into a rosin press and all that comes with that. So yes, I am blaming you guys... :rofl:

    Anyone else order from "Vape Entertainment Store" on AE?

    Hasn't shipped yet, being held back by the holiday. Supposed to ship tomorrow. Funny how nervous I am about this purchase. I think it's the lack of recourse ordering from China. Best I can do is keep my fingers crossed...

    That's what I used to do when ordering glass. A little more anticipatory juice on this I guess. With keychain flashlights its easy to forget I ordered them. :uhh:

    I see a lot of people posting about their TCR value on their DNA mods. I have a handful of DNA 75s and I don’t see anywhere to input a TCR value, even in the escribe app. I load material profiles and set max wattage and temperature. And this has always worked great for me but I’m still curious about trying the whole TCR thing. If anyone could elaborate on how to set TCR on a DNA mod that would be useful, thanks!

    In the materials tab in escribe
    It's one of the options when you click the Actions button, bottom right, when you add a new material.

    The problem with replaceable coil is quality of the SS wire used not all coils are equal quality. Some 316L clapton run great in TC others are a crapshoot with it
