This is big news. Finally the DiY community can build a DNA30 mod on the cheap. This deal really enables the vaping community to try their ideas at a homemade DNA30 mod. Up until now the DNA30 boards have been very scarce and difficult to acquire. I was able to get one by staying up all night during the release and I’ve fiddled with a box mod, but I had to treat the board like it was an exotic bird. I was too terrified to really try any variation on the design since I wouldn’t be able to replace the board if I fried it. Now I can really test my skill at soldering and compact design, without much conern for the health of the board. This deal is sure to cause a spark of innovation from the vaping community.
At first glance this looks just like the kit I paid $60 for. It’s got all the same pin outs and the same standard design. This is sure to cause a surge of demand for Hammond project boxes, Altoid tins and NES controllers. When I attempted to build my own box mod I had a very difficult time finding quality components. The preassembled 510 connectors I tried turned out to be junk, niether of the 2 I bought were near the quality of any of my mods. The battery holders available are also rather lackluster, I’m hoping to see new higher quality components hit the market soon. We might even start seeing preassembled boards with customizeable parts, like a DiY essentials kit, that would be nice.
Here is what Fasttech is saying about it:
- Variable Wattage from 7W-30W in .1 watt increment
- OLED display shows battery charge state, volts and ohms
- Micro-USB charging port
- Compatible with 0.5ohm~3.3ohm atomizers
- Input voltage/current: 3.2-4.3V/1.5-7A
- Output voltage/current: 4-8V/10A
There is a DNA20 available for $2 less, but don’t bother.
