Tesla Aerolite Pod Review

Updated on: 2019-10-21

Intro

What’s up, Insiders? DeucesJack at VapingInsider.com. Today, we’re going to be going over a new pod system. We’re talking about the Tesla Aerolite pod. Check out that beautiful green one I got there. You guys know, I love the color green. Awesome job on the paint on this one. I’m diggin it so far. The big question is, is this just another pod system or is this one a stand-out? Make sure you watch the whole review, find out all my thoughts and feelings on the Tesla Aerolite.

Here is the actual mod. Really nice gunmetal on it. It’s shiny and it’s schmutzie. You’re going to see, as soon as I start handling this thing, it’s going to get full of fingerprints. Got some Airolite branding over there. On the front there, you can see, there’s your power button. Five clicks on, five clicks off. You got an LED and there’s some Tesla branding. Has a nice weight to it. Feels really nice in the hand. On the bottom is where you’ll find your microUSB port for charging.

On the top there, you can see, we got three gold-plated pins. That’s what’s going to hit your contact on the pod in order to fire your coil. Here is your pod system right here. You can see, you got a gold-plated contact right there. There is your air flow right there. It is not adjustable. Here is where your fill ports are. You got one of these on each side. One is to stick your bottle of juice in, the other is to displace air. Once you’re done filling, you just pop that back on. I do like that the rubber piece does stay attached while you’re filling. That’s a nice job on that. You do have a mouthpiece cover. I do like that. It does not stay attached to the mod, I wish it did because I know I’m going to lose this thing. Once you pull the mouthpiece cover off, you can see, you can easily see your liquid level in there. That’s kind of cool. I definitely like that as well.

In order to install your coil, you take your airflow ring right here and you just pop it out like that. This is the 0.6ohm coil, good for 15-30W. You can see inside, again, regular round wire, vertical build. Nothing crazy going on here. I do wish this was adjustable. I don’t know how you made this piece and you decided not to make the airflow adjustable. Just doesn’t make any sense. Once you’ve done priming your coil, you put a few drops down the middle. Make sure you paint those juice ports. In order to install it, you just screw it in, just like so. After that, you take your pod system and you just pop it in there like that. I do like this little piece right here and here that allows the pod to stay put. It doesn’t move. That’s a nice job on that, Tesla. I do like that. I love the finish on this thing. In the weight, it feels substantial. It’s got a nice feel of quality to it. There it is with the cover on. it does look nice. Just to show you some of the other colors, here’s the green one that I’ve been using. It’s been a decent vape. I can’t complain about it. We’re going to talk about it a little bit more up top.

Size Comparison

Wanted to do a quick size comparison for you so you can get an idea of the size that we’re dealing with. Like I said, the term pod and AIO, the way they’re mixing things up now, it’s almost become interchangeable. So I wanted to put it next to the Orion because the Orion is something that is very popular. The form factor is very popular. Everybody has something in this form factor. So there it is next to the Orion. You can see, it’s significantly thicker. Basically around the same height but it feels just as solid as the Orion. It’s got that solid kind of build quality to it which I like. So I got to point that out. And it’s a similar form factor, just this one feels a little smoother in the hand, this one feels a little edgier. And I also wanted to show it next to Oumier’s new pod. This is the O1 by Oumier. You can see, the Oumier one little skinnier. Same type of pod on top but definitely skinnier, definitely thinner. So that’s just so you can have perspective.

What’s in the Box

It comes with

  • 1x AEROLITE Mod
  • 1x AEROLITE Pod(T-A1 coil, 0.6ohm)
  • 1x T-A2 Coil(0.9ohm)
  • 1x User Manual
  • 1x Charging Cable
  • 1x AEROLITE Kit Package

Also included in the kit is a microUSB cable and a spare coil. This is the coil right there. This is the 0.9ohm coil, good for 15-25W. You can see, just a regular round wire vertical build in there, nothing special.

Cons

Alright, Insiders! Let’s get into those cons and pros on the Aerolite.

First con is going to be that finish. It’s schmutzy, even the gunmetal one is. It’s a fingerprint magnet. That’s a con.

The mouthpiece cap on this one, it doesn’t stay attached. I point this out all the time and I wish it stayed attached. I lose those things all the time. I already lost it. It’s a nice idea but I need to be able to put it on the bottom of the mod or have it attached at some point because I’m just going to lose the thing. I’m always out and about, I’m always pulling things out of my bag out of my pocket. I wish they would have made it so it just attach to the bottom of the mod. That would be awesome because then I wouldn’t lose it.

And the last con on this one is going to be, and you’ve been seeing this in a lot of my pod reviews, I got to point it out. Because the market is so oversaturated with pods that my biggest fear is if you find a pod that you really, really like, are you going to be able to get coils or pods for it three to six months down the road from now? This market is changing super fast when it comes to pods. I did a best of pods video. I don’t even know if any of them would make my new list so my concern is the distribution of the coils and the pods. And since Tesla really doesn’t have the greatest distribution, I’m worried that if you like this pod, if you’re going to be able to get pods or coils for it, down the road from now. And I’ve been pointing it out in a lot of my reviews and it’s an issue with this system as well.

But that’s it on the cons. Nothing really that affects the vape quality. Just some nitpicky stuff. Let’s move on to the pros.

Pros

Even though I gave it a con for being schmutzy, the finish on it is really, really nice. It’s really smooth and it’s really well done. The paint feels a very, very high quality on this. I’ve been pulling this thing in and out of my pocket, in and out of my bag, so far, no marks on it. You guys know I tell you, all the time, I’m rough on my stuff. This finish is held up pretty good. It’s a pro.

Swappable coils, I like it. And you get two coils in the kit, pro.

It’s got a nice form factor. It’s comfortable to hold. I like that. It’s got a nice heft to it, a nice heft of quality, not just heavy for the sake of being heavy. It’s a pro.

You can easily see your juice level on this one, that’s a pro.

It charges fast, I like that.

And the last pro’s going to be, I get very nice flavor and clouds out of this thing. Let me show you what I’m working with here. Not bad, right? For this little guy, not bad in the cloud department. The drawer is nice and smooth, just the way I like it. It’s quiet. I think they did a bang-up job as far as the flavor and the clouds go on this thing. I’ve been truly enjoying it.

So that’s it, Insiders! Those are my cons and pros. Let’s talk about this one a little bit.

Conclusion

Is it a stand out or is it just another pod? I gotta say, I place this thing a little bit above average. It’s not like your average run-of-the-mill pod. I get above average flavor, above average clouds. It’s just nothing that really makes this thing pop where you’re like, ‘Oh my god! This is one of the best pods out there!” It’s not. But it’s better than average. It’s better than middle-of-the-road. Like I said, my main problem with a system like this, an obscure system like this is, what are you going to do three or six months down the road from now? Are you going to be able to still vape on it? That’s one of my biggest issues with all the pods coming out right now and it’s probably going to be an issue with this pod system.
