Lavatube 3 DNA 40 Instructions


It is the one that you have been waiting for, The LAVATUBE 3 by VOLCANO is the culmination of all the great features of the past LAVATUBE models but is still the original variable voltage / wattage device.

Masterfully crafted from high-grade 6061 billet aluminum, it is available in three colors: black, gunmetal gray and polished silver. The LAVATUBE mod series being well known for personalization, the LAVATUBE 3 takes it a step further with an interchangeable grip that is available in a variety of colors.

It features a flush-mount 510-connection for seamless integration of the Tube Tank Pro or any tank or RBA of your choice.

For better performance and usability, the three-button feature has been upgraded to a circle on and off switch surrounded by two semi-circle “+” and “-“ buttons. The screen has also been improved to a larger OLED display, which is capable of displaying the atomizer’s resistance, temperature, wattage, voltage, battery life and more.

If you opt to use Ni200 pure nickel wire in place of a kanthal build, the unit will monitor the resistance of the nickel wire and display the atomizer’s temperature limit in place of the wattage. If used properly, the LAVATUBE 3 will guard your vaping experience from the taste of burning wick and dry hits. The temperature control / protection that the DNA 40 chip features allows the user to set a maximum temperature limit cut off. When the temperature reaches this range, the chip will pull back on the wattage/voltage output automatically so that the device does not go over the set temperature.

The LAVATUBE 3 uses an 18650 battery for impressive battery life and performance even at higher wattage's.

The Lavatube 3 is an advanced vaping device equipped with a DNA 40 chip from Evolv Vapor which allows for 2 usage modes; Temperature protected mode and non-temperature mode. The Lavatube3 will automatically detect whether a temperature sensing (Nickle 200) or a standard (Kanthal etc.) coil is attached, but it is up to you to employ the temperature limiting feature. 

Installing a battery:

Unscrew the 2 portions of the device. The lower portion or battery bay(1) is covered with the rubber grip(5), and the top portion or Control Unit(2). The two portions separate just above the rubber grip. 

Once the Lavatube 3 is opened, Simply insert your Lavacell battery, negative side down. The Large red cross on the side of the battery should be at the top. 

Now would be a good time to add some Noalox to the threads of the Lavatube 3 while you have it open. If you want to know more about using Noalox please visit this article

Now screw your device back together, Making sure not to cross thread the unit. 

Once fully screwed together press the Fire Button(6) and you will be presented with the welcome screens.
