RE: LiPo battery safety:
So am I right in thinking if I set the soft cell cut off to 3.8 instead of the 3.09 that is currently at
It should cut out when the battery's get that low ?

Yes, that's right. To be honest, it's not particularly dangerous to let them go down to below 3.8v per cell before charging them, but you should aim for about 3.8v per cell if you're going to store your batteries unused for a while. And only discharging them to 3.8v per cell will extend the lifespan of your batteries. Smiling

RE: LiPo battery safety:
I think that cell cut off is under load, you won't get much battery life if you set it as high as 3.8v. 3.09v is a reasonably conservative default, as you'd expect from Evolv. If you wanted to be very kind to your batteries, 3.2-3.3v perhaps.

crusse vapes at ridiculously high power, his batteries come out at 3.8v because he's getting massive voltage drop. Smiling

Do you mean that there are people who vape at less than 200w with a DNA200?! Scratch Head

RE: LiPo battery safety:
Yeah well since I 1st posted today at at just before 1pm .I have got the weak battery screen about 15 minutes ago and it's on charge again :^/.iv mostly been using it at 97w today but usually on 150w .
I have read in another post started a few months ago about these saying the battery specs are a bit dubious
So I'm not sure what to do about the cutoff settings realy . Meybe swapping the battery out for one that was mentioned . ? But I can't see me carrying on with 3 hours per charge for too long .

RE: LiPo battery safety:
Looking at the time now I'd say closer to four hours
But the good news is it says its 75% charged already and iv had a few cheeky drags while it's been plugged in charging on a wall plug at .97a
