Tesla Punk 220W TC
Steampunk box mod
The Tesla Punk 220W TC is where performance meets style. This steampunk themed box mod not only looks good but it will also take your vaping experience to a whole new level. It’s powerful, well built and user friendly. You won’t find anything better in this price range, and except for the minor overhang problems we didn't find any cons with it.
9 Ecigguides Editors' Rating

We have reviewed some pretty sleek devices in 2017 and the Tesla Punk 220W TC is by far one of the most beautiful. This steam-punk themed box mod is easily going to get you noticed and the build quality on it is just outstanding. For a product priced just below $70 this feels super premium and the menu system is one of the best we tried.

What's inside the Tesla Punk box?

Inside you will find the mod itself, a good quality micro-USB charging cable, and the user manual. You also get a quality control pass sticker as well a battery safety leaflet.

Design and features of the Punk

It measures 86mm x 56mm x 30mm and the body is made from Zinc allow, ABS and PC. It’s a pretty solid device with a reasonable amount of weight to it and it feels very well built. There are two transparent plastic panels covering the sides of the mod and through them you can spot the all the steampunk elements like cogs, sprockets and transmission belts.

The Tesla Punk 220W TC also has multicolored LEDs that can be programmed to light up in different styles and they add a more personal touch. These will glow whenever you press the fire button, but you can also turn them off permanently if it’s just not your thing.

On the top side of the mod there’s a spring loaded 510 connector which will accommodate atomizers up to 23mm. Anything bigger than that will show some overhang on the side edge but as long as you don’t go over 25mm it’s nothing too annoying. On the main side we have the fire button, OLED display, LEDs control button, and the two adjustments buttons. The micro-USB port is located on the right panel.

The Tesla Punk 220W TC is powered by two high drain 18650 batteries. There’s a slide to open battery door on the base, which is also held in place by a strong magnet. It doesn’t have any rattle and it never got loose by itself.Tesla Punk 220W battery door

The menu system on this Tesla is incredibly intuitive and you can adjust basically everything. It does variable wattage between 7 - 220W, temperature control for Nickel, Titanium, Stainless Steel and TCR and you can even customize the power curve. Wattage is adjustable in TC mode and you can always lock the resistance. The device is very responsive, accurate, and it hits like a locomotive with each press of the button.

Tesla Punk: Performance and final words

The Tesla Punk 220W TC is where performance meets style. It looks like this might be the predecessor of the good old Tesla Invader 3. This smaller, steampunk themed box mod not only looks good but it will also take your vaping experience to a whole new level. It’s powerful, well built and user friendly. You won’t find anything better in this price range, and except for the minor overhang problems we didn't find any cons with it.

Former pack-a-day smoker, I discovered electronic cigarettes back in 2011. Since then vaping has slowly turned into my hobby and my full time job. I’ve tested hundreds of e-cigarettes and mods across the years and constantly used my knowledge and experience to help others make the switch. I’m passionate about technology, I enjoy reading and I love big flavorful clouds.

    Not sure if this review could have an update. This vape stopped working after only a few weeks of use. Looks great in design but it isnt a vape that lasts. It is a waste of money. The thing about reviews is that you use it for a a small amount of time and write a whole thing based on early usage. It doesn't really give a thorough view point.

    Hi there, sorry to hear about your Tesla Punk. Indeed we only have a limited amount of time to test each vape since there are others constantly arriving in our mail. We tested the new XT model more extensively and that one has no issues. Or maybe you had some bad luck with the product. Can't you contact the vendor and ask for a replacement or a repair under warranty? Best regards, Dave
