    Trial run...
    I used a section of the skin with some imperfections to do a trial run.
    I'll leave it for a few days to see how it holds up.
    Other than a couple of minor mistakes I made I think it came out awesome.[​IMG]

    Wingsfan I get the batteries. As you said really should use 30A but no one wants 2500mah. I get the math but that is pushing 20A if anyone vapes that high. You have to consider discharge rate, Thermal ability Etc too. They are rarely even 20 amp as rated.

    Gadget that is very nice. You did a good job. See that is a real skin. Look at the difference.

    I like Elephant and black leather. Those are painted, not tanned. So spilling juice on them is no problem. Spill juice on a bare hide or tanned and it should leave a spot. I think all of LV's skins have acrylic over them though.

    If I had one tiny complaint there is very slight movement in my battery door up and down. That is just being Anal so I am not even bothered by it.
    Otherwise I find the fit and finish much better than my Triade's. I like the way it fits in my hand too. Better than an Efusion mini which is smaller but is not rounded.

    Since all my photos were wiped out by Photobucket because I refuse to pay $599 to upgrade my account. Here's a couple of pics of my Therions I resized so they can be uploaded here.

    eBay, I was looking for Snakeskin and this popped up.
    I did find a lot of Snakeskins but the decent ones cost as much as the mod.

    I told you Guy's they cannot be real due to the price of these exotic skins. I doubt their Carbon Fiber is real either. However, all of it is plenty convincing so it does not really matter IMO. My favorite is the Elephant. Second would be the black leather. Until you get into custom skins. I would be hesitant because I am yet to know if the paint will last. Not to mention the Mod itself. I do feel the whole package is much nicer than the Triade thus far. The Efusion Mini actually seems larger because it is not rounded. Even though the Therion is longer I find it much nicer to hold than the Triade. Although if this were a custom Mod they would fit Three batteries in this space I imagine. There is a lot of wasted space. I feel the battery sled is far superior to the Triade, as is the door. I have not ripped a wrapper and doubt I will with this. My Triades ripped cases of batteries. Rewrapped them and it riped them again.

    Which is the skin that has like "flaps" for scales?

    That's not from an update, that's a screen I made.

    But personally, I feel that if there is an update it's usually am improvement or a bug fix.

    I have 2, the first one alerted me of an available update the first time I hooked it up to escribe. The second one was up to date.

    What firmware are you currently using? I'm running V1.2 SP5.2. I like it.

    RECOMMENDED SERVICE PACK (DNA 60, 75, 200, 250)

    EScribe 1.2 SP5.2
    https://downloads.evolvapor.com/SetupES_1_2_SP5_2_ServicePack.exe (12MB service pack)
    This service pack is minor bug fixes.

    On the EScribe side:
    - EScribe no longer has EEPROM Read Errors with some 1.2 SP5 devices. It can now upload to and download from them correctly. (With these devices, manually updating the firmware can still be useful to speed up uploading and downloading.)
    - Help->Report Bug and Help->Send Feedback go to the Help Desk.
    - TLS 1.2 is now used for secure connections if available.
    - The progress bar displays correctly when the desktop theme is Windows Classic.

    It also improves Production Utility:
    - Production Utility now checks that the thermistor is working correctly. (You will need to be in a room warmer than 0F to use Production Utility.)
    - Production Utility now shows a code identifying the firmware being loaded on, to prevent accidental loading of other firmware. Current firmware hashes are:
    -- DNA 60 - 1.2 SP3 - DAC2
    -- DNA 60 Small Screen - 1.2 SP3 - A103
    -- DNA 75 - 2016-06-05 - 95D6
    -- DNA 200 - 1.2 SP5 - 7E55
    -- DNA 250 - 1.2 SP5 - F5C7
    - The error dialog doesn't go behind the Production Utility window any more.

    Cheers,
    Steve

    Steve, I have 3 DNA devices (Lost Vape Therion 75, Triade 250, and Vapor Shark 200) all seem to be working fine. Do you still recommend that I upgrade the firmware? All have the original versions. Thanks. @Wingsfan0310

    It's really up to you. I'm running V1.2 SP5.2 on all my DNA mods. I have DNA 75, 200, and 250 mods (more than I care to count :giggle:). It's the recommended version now at Evolv's site. I like it, but if you are happy with what you're using, then who am I to tell you to change :teehee:. Seriously though, I'm happy with the version I'm running. I don't have anything bad to say about it. :cheers:

    Cheers,

    Well, the the things that were updated are in the post. That being said, I'm not sure what firmware you are running so it could be more things than are on that list. You can hook your mod up to Escribe and click on the device monitor to see what firmware you are running (bottom right hand corner). There is an oddity though, mine says V1.2 SP5. I've downloaded the SP5.2 service pack so I assume that's what I'm running since I don't see the prompt to update.

    Edit The last really big update(s) I remember added Temperature Dominate mode and the Material Tab. I just always updated my mods because I have a Firmware update thread so I try them out so I can tell people if I'm having issue when I update the thread.

    I have 4 Therions, one is used more than the other 3 combined (about 75K puffs). I've had the button stick twice on that one. I cleaned around the button with Rubbing Alcohol and a Q-Tip/Cotton Ball and worked the button a few times to make sure there wasn't anything sticky (like dried juice). I haven't had it happen since. I'm not sure if that's because it was dirty or that I'm just being more careful when firing. It's the mod I take with me everyday.

    PS I've never had it happen on the other 3.

    I'm using a therion dna166. I think it has a 250 chip. I'm really not sure at all.

    The Therion 166 is using a DNA250 chip (it's 166.7 or 167 watts when rounded up when using two cells - 250 when using three - it's the same chip). Chances are it already is running the latest firmware (the mod is relatively new).

    There is but one minor issue. Still love this and not a big deal. The battery door is on solid, it is not about to fall off. It is not quite tight enough. I mean the grip up and down the sides. So when I hold and squeeze it it moves a tiny drop inward and then back outward when I release it. So every time I grab it I feel this. While holding it once the pressure is applied it is absolutely fine. I am afraid if I bend it in Two things might happen. It might no longer The door may no longer sit flush with the frame of the Mod. It currently sits perfectly flush. I am not sure if I should bend it a drop just by squeezing it off the Mod or not. Might leave well enough alone. Since if I have to bend it back out at all it might never be right anymore. I know this is a very minor quibble and I hardly mind. If I could improve it, great. If not it is still fine. Would you Guy's bend it a tad or leave it alone? I know people have had issues with the battery door falling off. Mine is nothing like that. So I do not know if I should count myself lucky it stays put and sits flush. Or press my luck? It hardly matters to me so maybe better to leave well enough alone before I have a problem. I could understand doing it if the door was falling off but perhaps not in this case. Plus it is only going to go a drop anyways if I do not over do it. Since the plastic frame on the Mod to the door currently only has maybe .005mm of play. Just guessing but it is hardly any. I can see myself easily making it too tight to fit on, bend it back open and things are entirely worse.

    Sorry for long post about something so trivial but you can understand I do not want to trash my nearly perfect Mod. I believe it is all about QC. There might be 1 good one for every Ten bad ones. Since I seem to have finally lucked out Not sure what position to take.
    Thanks

    I do need to hook it up to Escribe already. Customize it and get any updates. If I am very lucky, having the blue screen I might have one of the rare screens you can change the color. If it has this the option will show up in Escribe.

    Anyways, so far this thing is excellent. On par with most custom's and better looking than many of them. I doubt this is real Elephant but it may be real Carbon Fiber. Since it is much thicker than the stickers for the Efusions. I feel this is LV's nicest Mod yet. Unless you need more than 167 Watts. I do not go anywhere near 166 like most people. 250W really requires a Lipo to be safe IMO. That seems a bit much anyhow.

    I think you want someone to tell you to bend it :D I won't tell you that, but if you do then do it just very, very little and quickly as if you're scared to do it and see if it fits better.

    I have purchased 2 additional covers and one of mine was just a little loose, it wouldn't rattle or fall off but I would feel it move some I'm my hand.

    I gently squioze it together and it's fine now. If you decide to try it, just do it a little at a time until it feels right.

    What about the paint on the black frame, is it solid or does it wear of with usage? Is it a heavy mod to carry around in your shirt pocket?

    I wouldn't recommend to carry any in your shirt pocket. I don't take chances that it might fall. Mine is usually in my hand.

    The black will wear over time.... mine has on the bottom of the unit but the rest looks great. I carry mine in my side pocket of my carpenter pants all the time. I have put it in my Carhartt shirt pockets but not long term.

    Thanks Guy's. I honestly think maybe mine just needs some light pressure applied. I would not squeeze this. I bet once you go to much it is jacked. It would be heavy in a dress shirt but not work clothes. I mean work as in the manual type. By now my Triades would be Degloved. This still looks brand new but I count my blessings. It is not among the light Mods like an Al85 or something obviously. Probably heavier than a full Alien. There is a lot of wasted space. Someone else could fit 3 batteries I bet. As I have said, I like this better than the Triade but that is subjective.

    My tank leaks so I keep wiping that writing and it is fine. I think this is all about luck with their QC. I kept getting horrible Triades but this Therion is very nice. Who knows how long the paint will last. Go figure I asked a favor and got this below Wholesale. Paid full MSRP for all those Triades.

    So I was not messing around as good as this thing is thus far. We do not really have neighbors here. Homes are 3 miles apart or so. I know some local folks. One Guy is a metal artist. He put it in a CNC vice wrapped with something specific to that tool as not to damage the item. It is programmable for force and 100 other things or so. It even compensates for the wrapper that is used. The first time he bent it .007mm. No James Bond joke needed. That was it. It is perfect. Of course I came with a case of beer in hand. People think we are just Hillbillies. I did well, now retired. He, I can guess is cleaning up with all that equipment in his huge outbuilding plus his home is very nice where we enjoyed a beer of which I had brought. You just might find very nice and competent people in rural areas. The inner city is where you will get shot for no good reason :)
