Tesla 80W TC Box Mod Instructions



The Tesla 80W TC Box Mod is another remarkable release from Tesla, a device that contains a technologically advanced chip, amazing wattage capabilities, temp control and all packed inside an ergonomically shaped, sleek package—it is no wonder why this device is perfect for any user, beginner to advanced alike.

Tesla constructed an exceptional and aesthetically appealing device in their design of the Tesla 80W TC Box Mod. Machined out of durable zinc alloy, this device is solid and is built to last. This is a device that will surely withstand constant day-to-day use while retaining its high-polished glossy look.

As if it wasn’t already stylish enough with its smooth curves and sleek finish on its zinc alloy body, this sturdy and well-built device also includes an additional magnetic battery cover that features a ridged design that offers a more rugged finish. This ridged cover also provides added grip to this ergonomic construction and doesn’t at all take away from its classy look, rather it enhances it while also adding functionality.

The Tesla 80W TC is equipped with a crystal clear OLED screen that is bright and easy to navigate. This screen displays an array of information that makes the monitoring and regulating of the device’s features quite effortless. The OLED screen shows the device’s current wattage, voltage, temp setting (when in temp control mode), remaining battery life and the resistance of the atomizer that is being used.

The Tesla 80W TC is a variable voltage and wattage device that has a huge range of power from 7 watts to an impressive 80 watts, with a voltage range of 1 to 9 volts. With this wide range of available power, a user is able to easily utilize atomizer coil resistances to as low as 0.1 ohms; making this device perfect for sub-ohm or standard vaping.

This range in power capabilities isn’t the only great thing about this stylish device. The greatest features of this device lie in its three user modes: Ti, Ni200 and BY PASS. Ti and Ni200 Modes are perfect for users who prefer to use temperature control coils with their device so that they never need to worry about a burnt tasting vape. In temp control mode, the device can be adjusted between 200°F up to 600°F (100°C – 300°C), for smooth hits that can be as cool or warm as the user prefers.

The Tesla 80W TC is powered by a single 18650 battery (not included), which can be easily swapped out via the sliding magnetic cover. If a spare battery isn’t available, Tesla included a neat feature in this device that allows for quick 2A charging via the micro-USB charging port located at the bottom of the device.

The Tesla 80W TC is not only beautiful, powerful and advanced, it is also equipped with a plethora of safety features as well that takes the guesswork out of vaping.
