That is so cool - manly, very manly indeed - specially with a few finger blisters - DiY repair war wounds are something to be proud of! Wizard

Haha thanks! Fortunately they're all on my right hand, and I'm left handed. And I play guitar right handed, so the burns won't get in the way of that either Smile

RE: DNA200 - Low battery
So I think I figured out what the problem was with the old battery. When I screwed an atty into the mod, there was more resistance than before. So I'm thinking, the 510 connection pushes down into the mod when you screw an atty into it, and I guess I didn't notice that before. So that's probably how the other battery got a hole in it. So now that I know, I just have to be extra careful not to screw atties too far into the 510.

RE: DNA200 - Low battery
I just noticed, when I plug the mod into a 1A charger, it used to say "1.00A" when it was charging, but now it's saying "0.77A" so I'm wondering if a bad-ish solder job could make the electricity not flow as well? Like maybe I accidentally added a bit of internal resistance with my shoddy connection. Any thoughts on this? Seriously, I SUCK at soldering, I can provide pics of flashlight mods to prove it Tongue

RE: DNA200 - Low battery
Depends on the pack voltage. Once each cell hits 4.2V, the current will start to dwindle.

What Don said.

My triade does it, we'll it never says 1.00 it's always .99 but dips to mid 70's when it's 75% charged

RE: DNA200 - Low battery
Yeah it was about 70% when I noticed it. I'll pay more attention to the charge speed when it's discharged more. It was working fine on my computer, 0.5A which is the max my computer USB can provide.
