Tesla Terminator 90W Mod Intro

The Terminator 90W mod from Teslacigs is probably most intriguing to me for what we don’t know about it – what exactly makes it tick?

The Terminator is described as an unregulated mod that can output up to 90W from a single 18650 battery. With no screen and user no adjustment, the mod delivers current and wattage based on the resistance of your atomizer build and battery voltage, and will not fire a resistance under 0.1Ω – which is still quite low.

Tesla incorporates on-board charging into the Terminator via a side USB port and several safety features including low voltage, short circuit, low resistance, and reverse battery protections, and a low battery warning.

The Terminator is available in stainless steel, black, red and silver.

Unanswered questions…

I have no idea what Tesla has tucked inside the Terminator in order to provide all of the claimed safety features, but I’m guessing it must contain a chipset in order to limit current and recognize the resistance of the atomizer, in addition to regulating the on-board charging.

The Terminator is a nice looking mod and very intriguing to me, yet I can’t help but be a bit skeptical about any mod safely delivering 90W to a 0.1Ω load using a single 18650 battery – and the Terminator is offering mech mod performance with the worry-free operation of a regulated mod. Hmmm…

While it appears that Tesla has taken the necessary precautions to assure user safety, I would absolutely make sure to use the highest CDR battery you can find in the Terminator, from a name brand supplier (Sony, Samsung, LG) and a vendor you trust.

I’ve seen the Terminator priced at under 25 bucks online, and would like to get my hands on one just to take it apart and have a look inside.

Hi Miguel,
There’s no battery in the box, you’ll have to buy one separately. Check our best 18650 list, I suggest getting either the 20S or the VTC5A.
