A PREVIEW of the Think Vape Finder DNA75C – Just a few months ago, I voiced a concern about DNA mod interfaces being a little old and antiquated. But I had also not experienced the updated color DNA display, so when the Think Vape Finder DNA75c mod was delivered to my desk overnight (Thanks Dave!), I prepared to eat some crow. Because the color DNA mod screen is a thing of beauty, to the eyes, and to fingers seeking better usability.
Think Vape Finder DNA75c Uncommon Looks...
Right out of the box, the Finder 75C is striking. My test model featured deep black zinc alloy framework, wrapped in a tight, grippy leather that felt as great as it looked. The silver fire key and three-button controls not only countered the rich darks on the rest of this color DNA mod, but also reassured me this would be a much-easier DNA operating experience.
The dual-18650 Finder 75C seems like it should be housing a much higher-wattage system, but despite the relatively tall format, the mod caps at a reasonable 75 watts. Hey, I’ll take 75 consistent watts over an erratic, jumpy 150 any day of the week. Look how well it worked for this past year’s popular Lost Vape Therion DNA75C – which I didn’t have the pleasure of reviewing. And let’s not forget the Lost Vape Paranormal DNA75c as well.
One thing that the Finder 75C shares with the Therion and Paranormal, is an overall look and feel. Though Think Vape’s mechanical aesthetic is different than Lost Vape’s more traditional beauty, both devices share the parallel dual-18650 format, leather accents, durable frame and button layout. It’s a proven design for high-end DNA mods, and one that carries an air of sophistication with it.
But don’t be fooled by the “low” wattage capability – the Finder 75C is very much a top-tier device. From the exquisite finish and craftsmanship to the pristine power under the hood, this is a mod for true enthusiasts.
Predictably Beautiful Performance...
But leather and metal don’t equal a quality vape experience. Visually, the star of this show is the stunning, sharp full color DNA mod screen, as it makes perfect use of its 1-inch real estate, giving users all the information they can handle in one space, laid out in an appealing, legible format.
Using intuitive presses of the up/down controls, and the enter/action button, users will be able to adjust every aspect of the Finder 75C’s operations. And there’s plenty to adjust, thanks to the Evolv DNA board’s famously extensive customization suite. We’ll get deep into functionality in the pending review, but rest assured, the Finder 75C will offer the same reliable power and pinpoint temperature control as other DNA devices.
And, should you choose to forego the onboard control scheme, the chipset will also feature compatibility with the latest edition of Escribe, the software platform that allows for unprecedented control over all aspects of your color DNA mod. This includes everything from highly detailed heating curves, to display themes, and seemingly every modification in between.
Escribe isn’t exactly for beginners. But then again, neither are DNA mods, even the more user-friendly Finder DNA75C. Users should be ready for a more streamlined DNA experience, but this is still very much an advanced mod for advanced vaping. If you’re planning to have a “fill it and fire it” mod to throw in your car, you can probably find a more appropriate device elsewhere.
One element that always speaks to newcomers, however, is the color DNA mod chipset protection suite. More than any other board on the market, DNA devices are designed to function safely under any type of use – yes, even the abuse handed out by overzealous new vapers.
The Finder DNA75C features the following safety measures built in: Cell-by-Cell Monitoring, Cell Balancer, Atomizer Protection, Low Resistance Protection, Short Circuit Protection, Overheat Protection and even Low Voltage Step Down Protection.
In other words, users will be protected against potential issues they likely didn’t even know to look for. Many of today’s mods have comprehensive protection suites which do the job. But few chipsets give us as much reassurance as DNA devices. The Finder75C seems more than ready to handle what we’ve got planned for it.
Our only concern about the Finder DNA75C is if the current setup is going to provide enough bang for the bucks Think Vape is asking for it. We’ve rarely questioned DNA boards – or the mods with which they’re used – but we worry that the Finder might be a little TOO close to the Therion, both in design and performance.
Of course, we won’t know this until we finish our comprehensive review, which should land in the week or so. Stay tuned!
