Before anything else, want to thank Vapor4Life again for letting me test this early. Yesterday they officially released the auto version of the DAV. As of right now it's only available in one size and color, but that's because of Chinese New Year. Can tell everyone more options will be on the way (which makes me happy because it means more testing). Without further ado, on to the review and info-
DAV 1100mah Auto-
The first thing that stands out about this DAV is the lack of a button. For the auto lovers of the vaping world this one of a kind pv, seeing as there are currently no other automatic vv device on the market of any type. It is a "sealed" auto connection, but one without any of the kinks of some of the previous "sealed autos" on the market. The draw is like that of a king diamond manual (in other words very analog like), and the switch is as responsive as the unsealed auto kd's of old. Haven't had a single issue of lag or needing to take a very hard draw to activate it. Size wise, it's 1mm or so shorter than it's manual counterpart of the same size (mah), and slightly lighter due to the removal of the button housing. This also gives it a more streamlined appearance imo. There is an indicator light on the auto DAV, right above the 4.2v setting is a very small white led. That brings up the next change, the voltage settings themselves. Where the manuals were 3.3-3.8-4.3-4.8v, the auto is 3.2-3.7-4.2-4.8v. Have done the 1.5ohm DC carto full voltage run, but need to get those notes straightened out. Instead will be posting the full charge on load starting voltages for the 5 types of cartos will be testing on it over the next few weeks. This will give you an idea what to expect from it at least at start. One more thing to note before getting into the technical numbers, this can be used as a hands free pv. Suggest using a 3.5ml tank, cool cart, or wow carto with a ming dt for best results, but it's a subject of personal preference.
Off load voltage-
On load voltages-
Cool cart at 3.3ohms-
Wow carto at 2.3ohms-
As we can see very similar numbers to it's manual counterpart on fresh charge on load testing. Will be updating this thread as tests complete.
