Tesla XT Kit Review box

On the back of the box, it lets us know what the contents of the packaging are. 1 XT mod, 1 USB cable, 5 silicone rings, two user manuals, 1 Tallica Mini tank, TS-XX coil 0.18 ohms mesh and a replacement glass tube. Here is your authenticity check, here is your barcoding. There is your mod. Here are all your paperwork, QC certificate, spare o-rings, battery safety card, Tallica Mini instruction manual, XT 220W user manual.

In the packaging, you’ll also get a spare glass, spare coil, that we’ll go over in a moment. You also get two Tesiyi batteries. They did come with plastic covers on the bottom just so they could ship safely. 21700 batteries, you also get a USB cable for charging and updates and here is the Tallica Mini tank.

From Top to Bottom

The Tank

Let’s go over the tank. Please excuse the condensation, I did just clean it for this review. On top here, we have an 810 style drip tip with the o-rings on the drip tip itself. Top cap is plastic but they did include some metal threading on the inside. Great job on that, Tesla, especially if you insist on using a plastic cap. The plastic does have some nice knurling around here and it is pretty easy to get a grip on it. Here are your fill ports. Large, big, beautiful fill ports that will accommodate any type of juice bottle. Threading on the top cap, very, very smooth. No issues at all with it.

On the bottom, we have some Teslacigs branding. We have a stainless steel 510 insulator ring around it and some stainless steel threading, over here. On the bottom airflow, this is a bottom airflow tank. You have an airflow control ring that is made out of the same type of plastic as the top cap. Stoppers on both ends, whatever you adjust on one side happens on the other side. A little bit of Tallica Mini branding right here.

Like every other sub ohm tank, if you want to replace your coil, you simply unscrew the base. Threading on the inside is nice and smooth. You can see that the cover here, the barrel here that goes over your coil has some slots to allow juice to flow freely to your coil. That is not juice flow control. Not much of a conical design. A little bit of a step up over here, but not much, but you can also see it’s a very short chimney section, so the flavor is right there on the coil.

Tesla XT Kit Review coil

Here is the 0.15 ohm mesh coil, good for 60-110W. Has a best-of rating from 70-90W. See that mesh inside? Really really nice. Like those diamond shaped juice ports, nice job on that. Big o-ring over here to keep everything nice and dry, I like that. Little bit of Tesla branding over here. I don’t like the fact that Tesla did not include the coil material, that’s definitely going to be a con.

The way to install your coil is you pop your coil in there. Make sure it’s seated correctly because it is a tight fit. Then you take your base, you thread it on. Threading is nice and smooth. And that’s it, now you’re ready to vape, after you fill the tank up and prime the coil.

The Mod

Let’s go over the mod. Here is the Tesla XT 220 mod. You’ll notice, you have a bunch of LEDs here under like a plastic type of glass. This also lights up. Very industrial, futuristic looking. You have a physical on/off button right here. That’s very clicky. That’s a Tesla thing, I love it. Would love to see it on other mods. Here is your square fire button with rounded edges. This is your screen, it is a vertical screen. Plus button, minus button, charging update port right here. On the other side, just some metal with some XT branding. On the back side, some nice curves and contours that give it a nice feel. On the top of the mod, we have a stainless steel 510 connection right here. We have a plate there with some air slots over here. Gold-plated, spring-loaded 510 that I would call a medium throw with a medium spring. Threading around there is very, very smooth. Like these little cutouts over here. I think they did a nice job with that.

30mm atomizers look absolutely horrible on it. Look at that, see that overhang? See that big platform there? I just don’t think they look good. 25mm atomizers look a lot better on it. This is the Kali by QP Designs. You can see, no overhang on the platform. No overhang on the sides. I think the included tank actually looks really nice on it all put together.

Tesla XT Kit Review 510

On the bottom of the mod is where your battery door is located. Some venting over here, the type of door you push out and pull up. On the battery door interior, you can see the vent holes go right through. I like that. Button style, gold-plated contacts, clearly marked plus and minus, although I wish it was a different color inside the mod. When you get your package, you will get two Teslacigs 18650 battery adapters. They’re made out of hard plastic. I like them, I think they did a nice job on that. Down the battery tubes. you will see a plus and a minus sign clearly marked. On the bottom, there are also gold-plated, spring-loaded battery contacts.

In order to install your 21700 batteries, negative on that side, positive on that side. Push the latch down and push it in and now your batteries are installed.

You’ll see your screen comes up right away. On your screen, you have your battery meter, wattage, resistance. Whether your resistance is locked or unlocked, if there’s an ohm symbol there, it’s unlocked. Voltage, preheat, material and memory slot.

General Thoughts

Alright, everyone! We’re back on top with the Tesla XT kit. I tell you man, I’ve been enjoying my time with this thing. I really have. My one complaint about the vape quality on this thing is the TC is anemic at best. In fact, I wouldn’t even really call it TC. I’d call it more like dry hit protection. It’s extremely, extremely conservative. It’s just not good TC. One thing I really love about it though, is that on-off switch. I think that’s a bang-up job by Tesla. I love that it’s available in stainless steel, purple, green, gunmetal and blue. God, do I wish they would have sent me the green one because it’s beautiful. You got to see if the pictures do it any justice, definitely go check it out in the link down below. You’ll see exactly what I’m talking about.

Let’s get into the cons and pros.


First con’s going to be that 510 platform. Bad job on that, Tesla. Nobody wants those platforms.

Other con’s going to be the plastic on the tank, I don’t like the plastic top cap or the plastic AFC ring. What would have it take them to make it metal? I think it would have looked better.

Other con’s going to be, heavy mod. This is a really heavy mod. Man, you guys are looking for something light and pocketable, this ain’t it.

It’s also a big mod. We’ll give them a con for that too, okay.

I don’t know if it’s firmware upgradeable. I can’t find any information as to whether it is or isn’t. So for now, we’re going to say no and we’re going to give it a con for that.

And we’re also going to give it a con on what I touched on before, the TC is very anemic. It’s really not good TC.

Let’s get into the pros cause there’s plenty of them.


First pro’s going to be, the tank has good flavor. I like the flavor on the tank. They’ll get a pro for that.

Tesla XT Kit Review coils

The mesh coils are good. They’re nothing earth-shattering but they’re very good mesh coils. And you get two of them. We’ll give them a pro for that.

The on/off switch, they’ll get a pro for that. I love it.Tesla XT Kit Review button

Easy menu system, pro.

Let’s give them a pro for the lights. They can be turned off and they’re very subtle. I like that, pro.

This thing scrolls in half watt increments. I love that. They’re getting a pro for that.

Batteries included, pro.

18650 adapters included, pro.

They put a spare glass in the kit, pro.

It’s a very complete kit. You get everything you need except for juice. All you got to do is add juice, pro.

Going to give them a pro on the price point. I’ve been seeing this thing for under 70 bucks. That’s a great deal for such a complete kit.

I’m also going to give them a pro on the great build quality. You can feel it when you hold it in your hand. This thing’s solid as hell.

And I’m going to give them a pro on that screen layout. I love that vertical screen. They did a great job with it. Pro for that.


We’ll have a link down below as to where you can buy this awesome dual 21700 mod.

We’re also going to have a link down below to the juice I was using. You guys know man, I love my berry vapes. This is a wild berry and cactus vape. It’s fantastic, definitely go check it out.
