Teslacigs is a reference in the vaping world. With this new model, the renowned manufacturer has created a simple, affordable, and well thought-out e-cig.
Measuring 19 mm in diameter with a 1.8 ml tank, it is compact and fits nicely in a trouser pocket, but still larger than a pod system. Where it shines is its autonomy: 1100 mAh, a solid amount of charge to keep you vaping through the day. A LED indicator above the firing button will let you know your battery charge.
The real innovation is in the atomiser, which definitely lives up to the title of Innovator. This atomiser is almost entirely out of plastic, more specifically, PCTG. This is a tough tank with a clear window to see the atomiser in action, a definite added value in terms of style, which also unfortunately increases the weight. While some purists may be aghast at the very idea, there are many benefits to this design choice. We really appreciated the threading of the (proprietary) drip top, which is a dream to unscrew to fill up your tank: PCTG provides a particular sensation, difficult to describe, that tells you it is snugly connected to the device; one could even say the sound is close to ASMR.
“Are you still vaping cartomizers?”
You can of course use a different atomiser if you want, as the kit works with a traditional 510 pin connection.
At around 20 Euros, the Innovator kit is a tempting offer. Tesla has produced a well-designed and effective device. While pods are all the rage these days for vaping enthusiasts, the Innovator could slice out a solid market share, along with its competitor the Flint, for example, which has similar features.
