    This is not yet confirmed, but could be legit!

    The mod looks nice. Funny how they're now targeting the 75w market, whilst Yihi is targeting 200w.

    They've already got the best 200W board, they lack the 75W single cell board. The next one down from the 200 is the 40, a big jump! (Unless you include the 200 in 2S 133W mode)

    That's gotta be the nicest looking mod I've seen yet.

    I've had confirmation, this is a thing! No details though, everything is covered by an NDA, so it's all "hush hush".

    It does look sexy, don't it.

    It's going to be a bit chunky though with a 26650 battery compartment. Anyone got any ideas on if the 26650s have improved over the last few years? As far as I recall, they were not really a competitor to the 18650s even though they have the ability to last longer. Am I right that they weren't as consistent in delivering power?

    You are correct, they still "sag" a lot more than an 18650.

    I am not really interested in an Hcigar mod, but a single cell DNA75 with full escribe support and a DNA40 form factor will shake the market up again!

    The DNA75 (board) release is close, anyone interested in getting in early?

    Getting close to placing an order now, they're gonna be around $41 AUD + shares in shipping, no interest?

    I'd love to grab one, but no time to do anything with it unfortunately.

    It sure looks sexy, but unfortunately I've spent all my money on other shineys...

    Anyone built or tried one of the 75ers yet?
    And, can anyone comment on how the performance is compared to the 200 in 2s (133W)?

    Im keen to get one or the other (debating the sx350j price point) for a dual 18650 build.

    I haven't. But apparently running parallel 18650 on the 75 is a big plus if you don't need the higher watts.

    Thanks @DogMan :)
    While having the extra watts is never a bad thing, I rarely (unless trying very low builds on occasion) go over 60W. The 75 chip itself would be more than suffice for my needs. Having the extra capacity running parallel would be great too, though I can't seem to find any wiring diagrams for that setup (if you have a link to one I would much appreciate :) ). The limited info I have seen shows it running in single 18650 or LiPo.

    Thinking (pipe dream) of a DNA 75 Squonker at present, as it is not going to be much more expensive than a series build with p-mosfet and voltmeter.

    Wiring on the 75 is easy, especially if your using a metal case & on board buttons.

    Parallel wiring just means the 2 +ve are connected together, and the 2 -ve connected together, apart from that it's the same as single.

    The one drawback on the 75 is the 6v limit, no good for high ohm builds.

    Brilliant, thanks @laurie9300 :)
    Looks too easy. I run builds around 0.4-0.8 normally so the 6V limit isn't a big issue for me personally.

    Does the DNA75 have a particular setting or firmware update needed to support 2x18650 (akin to the 200), or is it good to go out of the box?

    No, that's not the way it works. When you parallel batteries you are still at 3.7v so the board doesn't know the difference, you just get double the battery life.

    The 200 takes series batteries, 3 usually, 11.1v. When you set it for 2 x 18650s, you only get 7.2v, so you have configure it, otherwise it just thinks the batteries are flat.
