    @maelstrom2001 , yes its me again, your new nightmare :)
    I have a possible issue with my espion solo and "solo_190618.bin" firmware.
    The problem is that my box still in charge mode for hours and hours without going to "ibernation/power off" like my eVic Primo 2.0 with AF version 190624.
    At 6:30PM display is showing charging screen, please see attached image; and after 2 hours nothing changed: box still charging.
    Never had this problem with "original firmware" and the same battery.
    Maybe a possible bug in 190618 version? for test purpose i can safetly downgrade to solo_190602.bin firmware version?
    You have other suggestions to check?

    Thank you for attention

    Hello!
    Original firmware goes to sleep when battery voltage reach 4.12 volts or charger IC reports CV cycle end. AF have more strict limit: it is 4.20 volts. For some reason your battery can not take full charge. As I see on your photo, the charging stucks at 4.18 volts, so I can suggest a workaround: set battery offset voltage (BVO) +0.02. Anyway, charger IC in your box with this battery never generate "charge full" signal on any firmware, but stuck at 4.18 + 0.02 volts (= 4.20) will shutdown AF.
    Why I don't really want change that threshold voltage down to OEM firmware value? Cause this value works for my box and my batteries, and for main AF branch as well for a long time :)

    @iRcKenny you're welcome :)
    Want to add that actually using BVO about +0.02..0.05 volts should not make any significant changes to the operation of the box, but it should help to resolve issue you found.
    It's okay :)

    Charged today my Espion Solo with the settings you suggest, adding +0.02 on BVO, and the box had self shutdown after reaching 4.20V!
    Thanks.

    Now a new question @maelstrom2001:
    How i can reset the puff count? in my ArcticFox eVic Primo 2.0 when the puff counter is blinking i simply hold + and - untill the counter is resetted but how to do on Espion Solo? Holding Fire button or "back" button doesnt had any impact on counter.

    Hello!
    Main Menu -> Settings -> Puffs -> Counters, tap "Reset".
    Yep, here is this:
    [​IMG]
    For Espion Solo these actions are mapped:
    • "+-" = hold Fire + Lock buttons;
    • "Fire -" = swipe left in bottom of the screen;
    • "Fire +" = swipe right in bottom of the screen.
    In standby mode swipe area is in the upper part of the screen, above animated arrows (unlock the touch first).
