Review of Tesla Nano 120w Steampunk Mod

Quick-ish review of the super swell Tesla Nano 120w Box mod. This is the latest entrant in their Steampunk-styled line of Nano mods. As a huge fan of the Tesla Nano 100w back in the day, I’ve been super eager to get my hands on this bad boy.
Admittedly, the steampunk Tesla Nano 120w Box mod design is subjective here. There’s no “normal” version. This is an entirely zinc alloy, dual 18650 mod, available in metallic colors. I got “black” which is more of a “bright/faded gunmetal.” They also do silver, copper and bronze.
Gotta say, the packaging is exceptionally nice. Really beautifully embossed patterning, great construction. Like I really noticed how well done the box was. Tesla’s pretty good in this regard.First thing I noticed when I took it out of the box was:Good lord, this entire thing is one solid block of CNC’d zinc alloy.It feels premium as all get-out.
This is a weighty mod for sure, but not uncomfortably so (though I would not call it pocketable), and its weight matches its construction: the entire chassis is milled from a single piece of alloy, and is very very thick. No seams at all, and zero exposed screws. The bottom battery door is thick as well, closes nice and tight, and is zinc alloy. There is effectively zero plastic anywhere on the mod.
The steampunk design is beautifully milled and feels great, no sharp edges anywhere. The black is really slick. It’s not super dark, which I appreciate – it’s a great contrast against SS attys while still feeling it was made for them. Black attys look amazing as well. Even my Royal Gold Super Tank Mini 25mm looks totally baller.The 510 connector is nice and deep and springy. Threads are super smooth. I’ve had no problems with any attys, both long and short pins. All my attys – well, so far, the Kennedy, SZCRDA, CSMT, Icon, Medusa, Alpine – fit flush. No gap, not even a micron. e cigarette store
Aside from the sheer awesomeness of the build quality and the design, the OLED display is bright, and doesn’t bleed light. The OLED itself is right there in the open, there’s no plastic over it, which makes it tack sharp. The info on the display is damn ample. It’s got both a battery graphic and a percentage readout. Nothing is hidden, everything is on display. The info arrangement makes sense and is obvious. All good things here.
There’s an On-Off switch. Seriously. It might not seem like much but it’s freaking great. It makes the mod awesome to build and wick on. No fucking around with multiple fire button presses. Flip the switch, it’s off. Wick. Flip it again, it’s on.The menu system is stupid easy. Three fire button presses and you get an onscreen cursor. Use the +/- buttons to select any item on the screen, hit fire to select it, get a submenu to change it. For example, select the ohms readout, and you can change the ohms. Select the strength display to change the setting or adjust the user curve. And so forth. Super simple, no messing around with a top-level “main” menu, just select shit on the screen and change it.
The big, angled fire button is super comfortable and my fingers naturally land right on on it however I hold the mod. The +/- buttons are large and clicky.
Adjusting watts is always in 0.5w increments. This is so great. I love how the Alien adjusts intelligently depending on how long you press thebuttons, but this is better, and one of the features I loved from the Nano 100w. And of course it’s infinitely better than the adjustment on the Predator.
