So on 1/27/16 I bought my first DNA 200 device. The Flawless Tugboat DNA 200. The vape shop I bought it from set me up with a coil build and got it running great in Escribe and kind of went through some of the settings with me. I vaped on it for a week or so before ever hooking it up to Escribe at home. The coils were working fine so I just left it alone.
Then on 2/5/16 I grabbed the new Vapor Shark DNA 200 mod. I love this little mod. It’s so comfortable and just looks cool with anything on it. There really isn’t much else to say. DNA 200 seems to be DNA 200 and the only difference is the case they install it in.
Two days ago on 2/14/16 the Tugboat is vaping just fine all morning. I go grab me some coffee. Come back and go to vape on it again and the screen goes black. And that was all she wrote. The only way the screen will even come on now it by plugging it into a USB. It won’t recognize any atomizer or rda I stick on it.
So then tonight I went to see the movie Deadpool with my girl. Yeah, I was vaping in the theater when I noticed my battery was getting low. So I plugged it into a portable USB charger. After the movie I took it home and placed it on a wall charger. It would not charge. The battery icon never switched to the charge icon. So I plugged it into my PC and fired up Escribe. I reset defaults after trying a few things. But nothing seems to work.
I have contacted my vape shop about the Vapor Shark to see if I can get an exchange since I haven’t even had it two weeks yet. If they can’t do it I am going to be pretty upset. Because the only reason I buy there is if I have a problem they take care of it. But the Tugboat is being mailed to California tomorrow on my dime.
So DNA 200 is zero for two in my book. And only having a 90 day warranty on the Tugboat and a 120 day warranty on the Vapor Shark is going to have me counting the days until the warranty runs out. I just can’t see spending $200 on a mod with such a short warranty. Had I read the fine print I don’t think I would have purchased them.
