Pre-ordered the Vaporshark DNA30 or whatever it's called. Fury likes his, PCH liked his other than the 510 connection thing. I figure it's a better way to get my feet wet than investing in a Hana, and I'm never going to get that without being super quick whenever they release them, which ain't gonna happen.

Looks like they improved most of what people were looking for on the VS DNA30. I'd order one but it's too incremental for another 170 bucks. It'd be bad ass if they did an upgrade though, just the new chip and button, for a set amount.

Yeah, one of the few DNA manufacturers bucking the trend. Listens to customers and upgrades the unit, fair price and plenty of stock. Say whaat?

The only complaint you say about the VS is that it's a mass produced product which is not something most DNA stuff is. On the flip side that's why the price stayed down and why I could dick around thinking about it for a week before buying it.

I have no need for an upgraded one though so it's a vanity purchase. I am used to the button, I use a taifun on it so it has an adjustable 510 and I max out at 15 watts.

Actually, isn't the ZNA a mass produced product as well? They said their initial run was 1000 pieces. Didn't bring the price down much eh.

Does the vs do pass-through? If it does, it looks like a pretty cool box at good price (especially with the DNA30). If it doesn't, 1200 mAh wouldn't get me to lunchtime on a normal day and I would be screwed when away from power (hunting, fishing, riding, etc...). Right, wrong or indifferent theZNA30 is a tube mod add-on module not really a complete PV. I'll never run my ZNA 350 but will definitely get a 650 tube for it.

The dna20 version does so I assume it's the same with the 30.

Battery life is a trade off for the form factor I suppose. I was looking for a small DNA 20 to throw my drippers on and the vs does that job well. Tbh if I was gg to be away from a power source I would be bringing a mech and spare batts.

As it is, the vs gets me though a day and 2 Kayfun nano tanks.

As noted above the 20 does pass through, I would suppose the 30 does the same. This would be a function of the DNA chip than anything else.

Not truly pass through but you can vape while charging on a DNA20. The VS with it's 1200mah lipo lasts me considerably longer than a 1100 mah 18490. My build's are all what I like for a mech so I am not really boosting the battery until it starts getting low and I can vape the battery to the cut off where as in a mech I am yanking the battery probably around 3.6 volts. It's got pretty decent battery life overall and damn decent considering it's tiny.

The VS kicks ass. The only weak point (that I know of) on the current one is the 510. But that was probably my mistake in hindsight. I tend to torque shit down hard - it's a side of effect of clamping stuff down on press I guess. Like Fury said, the battery lif is good. Lasts me quite awhile and I can vape it up. Conversely, I also think the 1100 in the ZNA will last a decent amount of time with regulation. Or rather, there's just no drop off till the battery is dead.

Only warning I can give really is that they won't warrantee it for "RBA damage". But that wouldn't be much of an issue possibly with the new 510, but is still in the warranty on their page. They did however send me a brand new "courtesy" replacement for mine. If it wasn't for the VS, I wouldn't have known that I dig DNA so much, and wouldn't have ordered the ZNA. Form factor is good too. Tiny.

FWIW, I am due to receive the ZNA and the new replacement VS DNA 20 tomorrow. So if anyone is interested I'll probably be selling the VS. Probably for about $140-$145 shipped to someone on HEM if they are interested in having one for a back up or something. If not, then it'll go over to ECF (ugh). Shameless plug but it is what it is.

^ I wonder if your replacement will have the new 510 improvements.

I already pre-ordered the 30 version, or I'd be interested.

My only concern is the magnetic charging thing. I'd actually prefer mini/micro USB since those are so ubiquitous.

I'm sure it'll sell fairly quickly either here or at ECF (ugh). So not worried about it. I'd probably keep it, but I've spent a bit lately which is out of my normal buying habits. So it's gonna get sold.

I doubt the replacement will be anything more than the version I had though. It did cross my mind once nightfell posted they have a new one coming out, but I don't see that happening. I'm sure they've kept X amount of the previous version for warranty reasons and exchanges.

I don't mind the magnetic charging thing, kind of a hassle plugging in the micro on things sometimes. But yeah, I have a micro for my keyboard and mouse, so it was easy enough to use that same cable that is always plugged in on the VS. My only concern with the magnetic thing is when you are using it while it is charging I guess.

Anyway, the VS is a good little mod IMHO and worth the $$$.

I don't like that they don't show the magnetic charger/cord on the site, because I'd like to have at least two. These things are usually proprietary and I don't want to be stuck unable to charge the thing.

You could always send them an email and ask about it and the cost for a back up. You've already given them your $$$. So it's fair game.
