The DNA chipset set the usability standard for the vape industry. Devices without the popular interface make an attempt to mimic certain aspects of the software, but often fall short. Adjusting temperature on a DNA 200 chipset has never been easier, today we’ll walk you through the steps!

Evolv paved the way for chip sets in vape devices. Their micro-chips are user friendly, and offer an unprecedented level of customization via their E-scribe software. The DNA 200 was the first powerhouse interface to gain the respect of the industry, and was such a huge success that it forced other vape companies to kick their electronic interfaces into overdrive.

Changing certain features on the DNA 200 chipset is as easy as 1-2-3, and adjusting the temperature is no different. For today’s tutorial, we’ll be using the Lavabox DNA 200 from Volcano E-cigs. It’s an older device without a touch screen interface, so we’ll be making changes via button clicks.

Locking Your Device

Before you make changes to the temperature, you’ll need to lock the device. This mostly serves as a safety measure (temporarily disables the fire button…), but is also required to enter the temperature control menu.

Start by clicking the fire button five times. You’ll have to do it fairly quickly, otherwise the chip will not recognize your input.


You should now see this display confirming that your device has been locked:


Entering The Temperature Menu

After your device has been locked, you’ll need to hold both negative and positive adjustment buttons simultaneously for about five seconds (maybe less).

If you’ve done everything correctly, you’ll see this display:


Before this tutorial, I had my device set to 470 degrees. Once you’ve entered the temperature adjustment menu, you can use the minus button to turn the temperature down:


And the positive button to turn the temperature up:


Exiting The Temperature Menu

To exit the temp adjustment menu, simply press the fire button once more. This will lock the temperature you have selected, ensuring it will not be changed while vaping.


Unlocking Your Device

Once you have changed the temperature, you’ll need to unlock the device to use it. To accomplish this, simply click the fire button quickly again five times. You’ll see another display confirming that your device has been unlocked. Now you’re ready to vape!

A Few Things To Keep In Mind

Button arrangement on some DNA 200 devices will be different, but they should all have the same minus/positive controls and fire button (obviously). So the steps required to change your temperature should be virtually the same.

Additionally, your temperature can also be adjusted using Evolv’s Escribe software. But changing the temp you’re vaping at on the fly can only be accomplished using the steps above.

DNA devices recognize if the material used for your build is temperature compatible, so you don’t have to worry about firing a metal that cannot be temperature controlled.

Wrapping Things Up

That’s it, four easy steps to setting the temperature on your device! Take your time making these adjustments, and remember all changes are reversible. Enjoy your vape!
