Diy box mod cost?

Recommended Posts

I know this a noob question. What is the average cost to build a dna 30 box mod? I'm thinking of tackling one and the cost of all the parts has me a little boggled.

Thanks

Rob

The big thing you need is the DNA Board and they are around $50 most places that I see them.

The rest of the stuff is pretty cheap.

What type of enclosure are you wanting to make/buy?

I'm wanting to make the enclosure out of wood. AtoZ seems to be out stock on a lot of things. Or I would just order the entire dna 30 kit they have. I'm finding some things from Amazon and a few other sites. I was just wondering what the average cost of it all.

You can build one for < $10 in parts (wiring/electrical, 510-connector, battery-contacts, enclosure)... above what the DNA30 chip costs. You can also go all-out and spend another $50 on the parts and enclosure... it really depends on how elaborate or simple you are trying to go.

I have had good luck with them.

I still have not built a mod from scratch. I keep planning one, but other projects keep jumping in the way. I am currently wanting to rebox my ipv3. The only problem is there really isn't much room to spare. I am currently thinking about using a 7.4v lipo. I am not too worried about bigh mAh more with size. The board is long! I will take pictures of it once I dissasemble it again and ask for suggestions, in a new thread.

Cool I will look for it. I have seen nobody that has done a lipo/SX330 build! I thought I was the only one dumb enough to tear up a perfectly good ipv3...lol I don't even know where to start!

First step...buy white lab coat

Second step...get your Frankenstein on

LOL!

I don't know. I think this is pointless. The board is huge! I have been trying to draw up a box that I could have 3d printed, and it isn't turning out any smaller (with dual 18650s). Possibly more ergonomic though...lol
