Tesla Invader 3
Now priced at £35
I’ve been using the Tesla Invader 3 for a few months now, and it’s become my go to mod for most of the time. Simplicity, size, solid build quality, long battery life, and potentially massive power if required have made almost everything else pretty much redundant.
“Put the batteries in, turn it down , and you’re good to go” a customer replied when I asked how he was getting on with it, and it really is that simple.
For those vapers used to an LED display, this may be something of a change, but after a day or two, you’ll realise the LED displays that are pretty much standard on most new regulated mods are not actually necessary, and the benefits of not having the LED draining the power, and having potential to fail, far outweigh the benefits of having one.
We’ve got the simplicity of a mech, with all the standard safety features you’d expect to find in a regulated mod, and power from the series connected dual 18650s is adjustable via a very retro styled potentiometer. With a tank such as the dual coiled Wotofo Conqueror, and with fresh batteries, adjust the pot right down to the minimum, with a dripper such as the Ice 3 also from Wotofo (and which looks absolutely superb on the Invader 3), or the Geekvape Tsunami RDA and as the batteries start to reach low voltages the pot can be turned up to ensure a satisfying vape.
All in all, for me, this is the mod of 2016 , so far at least, the size will surprise you, and the solid high quality feel to it, not a hint of a rattle or a sense that you’re holding a half empty box, this is sold and dense and my own ones have taken a few good knocks. The black one can get scratched up a bit in use, but is far more resistant to superficial damage than the vapoursharks for example. The stainless is more forgiving obviously, and without a display, or wattage adjustment , or temp control, or bluetooth connectivity or any superfluous addons , this is a mod for someone who just wants to vape without faff.
2 x 18650 Li-Ion batteries are required, and also a safe reliable external battery charger. The USB port is often the first point of failure for many mods, and doing away with another potential pitfall is, in my opinion, a big plus point. We’ve been selling these mods for almost 6 monthss, and as yet have not had a single one returned for repair or replacement. Almost unheard of at a time when inbuilt failure seems to be a standard feature of many mass market mods at this pricepoint.
