As Evolv prepare to get stuck into a court battle with Joyetch over a patent infringement of the DNA 200, overnight I’ve been emailed a number of pictures from the Las Vegas Convention which indicate they are about to release the DNA 75 chip into the vaping world.
Details are limited so far, but here’s what we know right now.
Now, I can hear you thinking, possibly somewhat cynically, ‘What the hell is the point when we have the DNA 200?” Well, I’m told the reason is the DNA 200 won’t work with a single cell battery, so this would seem to be the logical answer in response to that problem. For those not interested in the horsepower of the DNA 200, who want a reasonably small form factor mod with a single 18650/26650, this could be the chip you’re looking for. One has to assume that this will also be a more cost effective alternative to the DNA 200.
As you can see in the attached pictures, the first mod to be released with the DNA 75 chip will be the HCigar VT75 a 26650 variable wattage device with temperature control.
There’s nothing revolutionary here, but Evolv can see the 75w YiHi chips denting their sales and obviously want a piece of that action.
Will the DNA 75 be compatible with Escribe software? That is yet to be confirmed, but with no stainless steel setting on the chip, you would think Evolv will have it future proofed to a degree by making the chip Escribe compatible.
That’s all we have for detail right now – but I’m sure we’ll be hearing a lot more about this after the Las Vegas Convention closes tomorrow.
