DNA mods are systems that include a DNA chipset by Evolv Vapor. There’s a wide range available now, and it provides undoubtedly the best hardware on the market.
Some of DNA’s brilliant features include temperature control down to 0.5 ohm, more efficient battery usage, and more interactive user experience.
The company sells these chips to both individuals and other companies, meaning there’s a lot of different DNA options on the market. It’s a great piece of kit and is often found in already high-quality vape systems.
The DNA chipset itself starts at around $50, so it does run quite high, but in my opinion, it’s worth the money—and many who would agree.

Top 5 Best DNA Mods 2020 – Our Reviews:
1. LAVABOX DNA 200 Box Mod
This incredibly stylish box mod comes pre-equipped with the DNA 200, one of the most up-to-date models from Evolv. It’s LAVABOX’s premiere system, made from ultra-durable aluminum most commonly used for aircraft.
As its name suggests, the LAVABOX DNA 200 features a massive 200W range and operates on a single Lithium-Polymer 900mAh 3 Cell, a very powerful battery that will give you hundreds of hours of usage.
Although every model comes with a black rubber handle, the other part of the body is available in a range of colors: red, blue, and white. It’s a beautiful piece and is ultra-resilient, meaning it will last forever.
It looks futuristic and has a great operating system. This is one vaping device that is hard to top and is one of the most popular DNA mods.
I’m a huge fan of both its performance and design. Its only flaw is that it takes a while to charge—around 2 hours to hit 100%—but the battery lasts so long this is hardly an issue.
- Very durable
- Top-of-the-range, customizable system
- Long charging time
2. Dovpo Mono SQ DNA75C
This next mod, the Dovpo MONO SQ DNA75C, is available in four colors: green, black, blue, and red. It’s a box mod but is very portable, running on a single 18650 battery that fits neatly into the side of the body.
It comes in at around $150 which is a very reasonable price for a DNA mod. It’s the perfect system for those looking to get into DNA vaping, and it’s a cost that lets the user decide if they like DNA vaping before moving on to their next upgrade.
Although the DNA 75C isn’t the newest chipset, it’s still a good one and offers upgrades just with slightly less energy efficiency. This should hardly be an issue for those in the product’s target market.
It’s ergonomically designed, with small measurements and curved slots for the fingers, but those who want a larger system are better served elsewhere.
- Excellent DNA beginner piece
- Great price
- Not the newest chipset
3. Lost Vape Orion Pod
Pod vapes with DNA systems are few and far between, and the Lost Vape Orion is arguably the best one. It’s got quite an unusual design, with a box body and a mouthpiece on the far side of the top, but I like this a lot, although some claim it resembles a walkie-talkie.
The Orion features a DNA Go chip, which is both easily usable and very efficient. It comes with a 950mAh battery which is a great choice as it’s rechargeable and provides plenty of use: around 450 puffs.
I love this mod as it combines the entry-level simplicity of pod vapes with the futuristic technology of a DNA system. It can operate as both a mouth-to-lung (MTL) and a direct-lung (DL) machine, leaving all vapers happy.
It’s also very simple to use, with a button on the side for both vaporization and on/off.
Due to its size, it doesn’t have the luxuries associated with larger box mods—its tank measures in at a small 3ml, so I recommend taking a bottle of juice with you to refill the tank should the need arise. This can be frustrating and inconvenient, but it’s not the worst sacrifice you could make for a system this efficient and practical.
- Very portable
- Great price for a DNA mod
- Physical design isn’t for everyone
- Quite a small tank
4. Think Vape Finder 250C
The Vape Finder 250C features the most powerful DNA chipset yet—the DNA 250 Color. It’s a very, very strong piece of hardware, giving maximum efficiency and an entirely customizable system.
This DNA mod is a mammoth system, operating on three 18650 batteries. This is very impractical for taking out with you, but if you want to use it at home, it’s great.
The system needs this amount of power to operate at its full potential which is 98% efficiency, an almost unheard of percentile.
It’s very rugged and provides a great hit every time, so you should never experience popping or dry hits unless there’s an issue with the coil. It comes in four colors—red, silver, black and yellow—and features a large fire button at the top of the body.
The mod also fits comfortably into your hand, and will definitely stand out from the crowd.
The most common complaints are very obvious ones—size and weight. If you buy this sort of product, you should really expect that, but due to the three batteries and metal exterior, this is perhaps even heavier than you’d assume.
- Very rugged
- The best operation system
- Huge and very heavy
5. Lost Vape Triade DNA250C
The Lost Vape Triade DNA250C also operates with three batteries and receives similar complaints to the Think Vape piece above. It’s also incredibly powerful with the DNA 250 chipset and is a firm favorite for those looking for a powerful system.
It can run up to 300W, which is massive and definitely for the more seasoned vapers or cloud chasers out there. It’s a great mod and it certainly knows its market.
I love this one although it isn’t even my style—a testament to its quality. It’s incredibly rugged, made from plastic and metal, and will withstand the test of time.
- Powerful DNA 250 chipset
- Runs up to 300W
- Designed to last
- Huge and heavy
DNA mods are the future of vaping, and these are some of the best you can buy.
In recent years, it’s become very accessible to all users, although it does tend to be for those with more experience under the belt largely because of the price and high performance.
