We have improved the assembling of the XvoSticks. The wires are not soldered now, they are crimped.

You can see this at the picture.

We are working on the XvoSticks and we are doing our best to ship your orders to you.

This is the first big batch and we have many unexpected difficulties. The quality of our product is very important for us and we prefer to delay the shipment but make really good products.

We have many XvoSticks at the assembling now, and we are going to ship them by small batches as soon as they are ready.

We understand that the waiting time is long and we can make a refund if you are tired of waiting. On the other hand you have already waited so long and there is the last step left. So if you wait a little more you will get really cool mod which has no analogues. The waiting is really worth it.

Hope for your understanding and thank you for your patience.

They have arrived. Thanks. Very nice gear. As I expected, I had to turn down a protruding ring on my Aspire Nautilus to fit into the chamber, but all is well:



The only oddities are: a 1.5 mm Allen wrench is included which does not fit anything I can find. There is no instruction manual. Perhaps there is one online somewhere?

Unfortunatelly we don't have any instructions.
You can regulate the height of atty hole by unscrewing the disc in atty hole using this allen key.
And thanks for kind words about the XvoStick! We are happy that you like it!

Well, it does the usual turn on/turn off (or at least it locks the buttons) with five quick pushes on the fire button.

One thing I noticed is that there is no indication about the battery orientation. Fortunately the XvoStick (actually the DNA 40 board) has some kind of reverse polarity protection, since I tried it the wrong way first. (The correct orientation is positive-down - put the plus end of the battery into the cavity first.)

A bit of searching found this file on the EVOLVapor site:

http://www.evolvapor.com/datasheet/dna40.pdf

It explains the operation of the DNA40 board. Perhaps a URL could be enclosed with the mod.

Because every mod using the DNA40 is different, the data sheet doesn't say which way to  insert the battery. That information should either be in the box with the mod or engraved on the mod somewhere.

Thanks for letting us know. We'll correct this in future versions.

ProXvoStick - same as XvoStick but for 26650 battery.
More power for an all day long vaping!
It's also possible to use it with 18650 battery.

Same size atomizer pocket? Or can it take a slightly larger diameter atomizer?

Yes, atty hole is 23.5mm, the same as in the XvoStick.

Good news! We start production of new mods: YStick and ProYStick.
These are the first stick mods with SX350J V2 chip for 18650 and 26650 batteries respectively.

Get an Early Bird bonus investing in these mods now. We expect to have recommended retail price to be $235, but now on the image stage the price is only $159!
If you place an order now, you will certainly have the best conditions:
 - the lowest price in the very beginning
 - the discount will decrease as soon as sticks get ready for the shipping: when prototype becomes available, when sticks get back from anodizing, when assembling is started, etc
 - an immediate full refund will be allowed any time before the shipping, besides PayPal security provides buyer`s and seller`s protection
 - you can change your mind and replace YStick with ProYStick or vice versa any time before the shipping
 - we are planning to start the shipping on April 11

As usually we'll post news and photos from the production on forums and in the store, so you'll see how things are going.

Looks nice but......

Can you do something that takes duel 18650's

I don't carry spare batteries and I would like something that will last a 16 hour work shift :)

Wouldn't the 26650 model cover that?

Pretty cool looking mods Chels .. very different from the normal generic shapes flooding the market.. what material are they made out of and what finishes will be available if made of metal?

I really like the design, especially the firing button on the ledge near the top. That appears to be just the right place for using the thumb for firing.

But I would not consider any of the designs so far to be sticks. To me, they are all box mods.

We had such a variant as well and even made 3D model. It looks not so pretty really. The mod is very thick and feels uncomfortable in hand.

The atty is screwed at the depth of 35mm. We are going to post more photos when the prototype is ready and will show you how it looks like with the atty.

We are happy to present the YStick prototype.

Now it's ready in metal though not anodized yet. It's assembled with SX350J v2 and it's working well.

Hurry up to get an early bird bonus for YStick and ProYStick!
