Take hold of the retro-futuristic-inspired design of the Tesla Nano 120W “Steampunk” mod. This aesthetically-pleasing device takes the opulence of the steampunk subculture and pairs it with a high-quality chipset capable of keeping up with the demands of current sub-ohm tanks and rebuildables. The clockwork engraving of the chassis gives this device a unique neo-Victorian look, combined with the feel of a higher-end device with just the right amount of heft. An ergonomic fire button allows the user to fire the device with ease and a dedicated on/off switch assures another level of safety allowing your Tesla Nano 120W to fire only when switched to the on position, but also keeps it from going into that annoying sleep mode. The accurate, comprehensive temperature control suite provides support for a variety of coil materials, including stainless steel, nickel and titanium. Additional features include both a ramp firing mode and programmable user profiles. With its unique looks, high-quality feel, and versatile chipset, the Tesla Nano 120W “Steampunk” mod is a fantastically gorgeous device. Get yours while they last.

Update on previous review
Posted by Corey Klinedinst on Apr 29th 2018
Didn't see anywhere to edit my previous post, so I'll make a new one. I'm now using button top 18650s in this mod and it seems to resolve the battery door issue. The button top batteries are a tighter fit and apply more pressure to the door. This locks the door in more securely and takes a good bit of force to open it now. It seems that it was designed for this type of battery, but I don't remember it being stated in item description. If anyone is have door opening issues, try a button top battery instead of flat.
Love This Mod

It’s so unique, classy, functionality for me has been great, fortunately I haven’t had the problems some others have been having. I ordered another just in case, I love it so much! I put a Smok big baby beast in stainless Steel on top of the darker silver one and topped that with a turquoise drip tip, gorgeous! Flavor of Brexit at Tiffany’s added and I’m in vape heaven people! All of above will stay the same with this unit. I just ordered the brass that will go with a gold big baby and a jade drip tip and this will be filled with Amaizeballs! The other amazing part of this unit is the on off switch, that’s right it’s got a side switch! Love this, No 5 clicks on, 5 clicks off with this puff powerhouse! Slide it out of your pocket or your bag, slide the switch and cloud heaven! I’m so sorry for folks that have had bad experiences with this mod, I’m hoping that I will handle it like a little baby and it’ll give me more months than it already has. 5 months and counting, fingers crossed...good luck to the rest. I’d give this one a go even if you use it for going out on the town, it’s that good looking:)! Not too heavy. I can’t think of a time that I’ve gone over 75watts, so it works fine by me. I’ve got other mods that’ll do that if I really need to. It’s not an everyday only mod you’ve got type of mod, but I love it and use it everyday.
Looks nice but badly designed
Posted by Corey on Mar 1st 2018
Like other have said the bottom door is pure garbage. Not only does the open on its own and batteries come spilling out it also has battery connection issues related to the bottom door. I'm constantly fighting it to stay powered on. I've owned this piece for about six months now but the door started acting up only after a couple weeks of use. When it is working it does hit really nice but the design flaw is catastrophic and I would not recommend this product to anyone.
Looks nice after a while... 670
Posted by 670 on Feb 25th 2018
When I first got the mod, I was impressed with the design and ability to hold its own but then after a few months, I started to notice that the machine wouldn’t allow me to vape at a decent wattage after the battery life went to half tank and that is very frustrating. Also, the spring to keep the battery door became so weak that it’ll pop open with little to no pressure and if you’re not paying attention, you’d lose your battery. Just buy it for the looks because it is beautiful.
Battery cover disappointing
Posted by Cassandra Michelle Crouch on Feb 14th 2018
After short use, the battery cover fails and pops open at the slightest impact. It's cost me more than one set of batteries, getting damaged after falling out. Works great except for the battery door! Would not recommend.
Battery cover is terrible and constantly opens after short use
Posted by Unknown on Feb 12th 2018
I originally loved this mod, until after a couple months use the battery cover started to become lose. This causes failures in battery contact, and more recently the battery cover pops open with almost zero pressure applied. It is now being held together with an elastic band. Very disappointed and would not suggest you buy this mod.
Posted by jz on Jan 12th 2018
The machine is great, Vapewild with their service is even better. Thank you Nate.
Take it easy with the battery cover.
Posted by Kraken on Dec 24th 2017
I got this mod after using for 2 years an eleaf 50W. I was a little bit scared, I am not going to lie hehehe it was going to be bigger, external batteries, heavier, more options, etc. After using it for a week now, I super love it! It fits well in my hand, I am used to the weight of the mod, where the power button is awesome and comfortable, the power of the mod is amazing and it makes the vapor production and flavor out of this world! The only think is that you will need to have 2 sets of batteries or you will have to stop vapping until they are charged. I knew this when I got it, and I thought I was going to be fine with 1 set, but is kind of a pain. So I fixed the issue and got a second pair. I looooove it!
Battery contact cover fails after only 1 month
Posted by Cris on Dec 21st 2017
I love the style and was quite happy with this mod until the battery contacts and cover loosen with use. Now I am constantly adjusting and pushing on the cover so I can get power to the mod. Sadness.
Beefy, reliable, & cool
Posted by Matt Londa on Nov 20th 2017
I've been a fan of the Tesla Nano mods.
My last purchase was the SteamPunk 120W model.
My 2 other Nano 60w mods bombed out after a lot of use. Pretty sure the solder broke in the firing mechanism on both.
But I love the meatiness of these things, and overall, they've been really good to me. I have big hands, and don't like wimpy mods that feel like they'll fall apart..
Well this thing is great! Feels 'right' in my hand. It's heavy, and I like that personally. Downside is though, when I store in my jeans front pocket, my pants creep down exposing my buttcrack. Thats ok...it's a sexy damn crack so don't care. The ladies love it!
The huge firing button is strategically placed at an angle, on the top-side of the unit, and never sticks or wobbles. Perfect for thumb, or forefinger firing.
The Steampunk design is cool, but what I like about the design is that the texture it creates, provides great grip.
Battery door flips open, and you move into position to click shut. Never an issue...solid.
Smoke blasts from this thing.. no issues there.
I like you can change the settings from Soft, Normal, or Hard. I only use 2 of the 3 settings, but nice to have the capability depending on my mood.
Overall, this thing rocks. I give it 5 stars, but I'm skeptic about the whole solder issue. If it does go, I might try a different brand though, and I'll be back to drop a star off my rating. Still wouldn't go below 4 for this bad boy!
BTW VapeWild is cool. Glad I found this site.
Love this little thing

I've been using the brass colored mod with the coffee colored Uwell Crown 2 atomizer, for the past couple of months. Not only do they look amazing paired together, but the flavor and vapor produced with that setup is pretty nice. The fact that this mod has a simple on/off switch was the key selling point for me. No more trying to remember how many times I need to press the 'fire' button. Because the power function can differ from mod to mod, I would sometimes just end up locking my device or accessing a menu, and having to scroll through the options. Having a power switch is also a plus if you use this thing while driving.
Also, aside from the usual Soft, Normal, and Hard firing modes, you can customize your own! It takes some time to get used to, but it's well worth it if you can find the right levels.
Now, the only reason I'm giving this mod 4 stars and not 5, is because after extended use, the natural oil produced from your hands and fingers will eventually make the amazing color fade, and can leave your hand with a slight metallic smell. That's the only downside for me.
Other than mail problems Absolutly perfect purchase.

Looking for a new mod that could produce abit more of my clouds with and this mod and SMOK beast tank are the combo need to fullfill this.
Posted by Andrew on Aug 3rd 2017
Beautiful mod for a reasonable price that functions very well and is very adaptable. It should be noted that this mod is very sturdy and has a certain weight to it which can be either a pro or a con but I would highly recommend it.
Sexy Cheap and Easy to use
Posted by Mark Tablo on Aug 3rd 2017
Loved the product before I fired it.
only started using it but I will update in about a month or two.
Better than expected
Posted by nancy johnston on Aug 1st 2017
This box mod is pretty as well as functional. Love the on/ off switch. My Crown III looks and performs excellent together.
Posted by Ian on Aug 1st 2017
I think my wife made the first review for this here at VW. She was spot on with the mod, great weight to it and looks stylish. Last week it would not turn on. Just to remove any questions. No I have never dropped it. No I don’t use bad batteries. No I never allowed the mod itself to get wet by e juice. I know ohms law even before they applied to vapors, so I was not even close to stressing the chip/BMS (battery management system), I do not blame VW what so ever, they just sell them. I did look into the device and found it is has a short and the chip was defective. What is the most annoying about this is the fact my wife ordered this at VW for me as a gift. An online review about vaping mods don’t cut it. I will keep an eye for longevity. Once again extremely disappointed and I hope it was just me that got one that did not pass quality control, but yet was sold as passed.
Great while it lasted
Posted by Unknown on Jul 25th 2017
I absolutely loved this mod the moment my hand conjoined with the brilliant chassis. I purchased this is late April/ early May. It is now July and I need to purchase a new mod. The bottom hinge works when it wants to ( a lot of batteries falling out of the mod and into my pocket) and the finish is now a puke Orange (it was brass out of the box). It fires when it wants, resets when it wants. I loved the feel and I couldn't put it down. I would have given it one star, but I also will be humble and blame myself for over using it. I sang it's praises but longevity isn't my version's fate.
Posted by Tony Glock on Jul 21st 2017
The moment I removed the mod from its box I fell in love. This is a great mod and it hits like a truck. It is an obviously overpowered mod cuz when I Vape my Smok Alien mod I Vape around 115 Watts but on the Tesla Nano 95 Watts is where I get a similar Vape. Better to be overpowered than underpowered any day imo. I also love how you can tweak your resistances and lock them in cuz I generally Vape stainless clapton coils and the resistance tends to bounce around on some mods. Im glad I bought it.
Can you dig it? I freakin do.
Posted by Matt on Jul 20th 2017
My past 2 mods were Tesla Nano 60W's. They were great. Good size, heavy, and blew nice vape. I had the same problem w/ both though...The charging port disconnected from the board, and that was it. Frustrated, I bought 2 18650's, a charger, and the Nano 120w (approx $70). Best move ever! I've used it a week now, and the batteries are still on the same charge. It's night n' day difference moving to a 2 battery unit from an internal job; the draw, and amount of vape I put out now is wicked cool. Get one.
Oh, and my first dealings with VapeWild was an amazing experience. They helped my place my order via chat, my order came in a few days w/ 6 sample juices. A+ on customer service VW. out.
Posted by Ken on Jul 2nd 2017
I've had the smok g320 for a little while And the buttons didn't feel as smooth as I liked. So I decided to look up different mods. Then I came upon this beauty and by all that is holy. This feels amazing. Buttons click smoothly and feels so good. Even though it doesn't go above 120 watts. I don't vape that high so it's ok with me. I love this mod and will never let it go. EVER!!!!!
Great look! Great feel! Great Mod
Posted by Matthew Dixon on Jun 28th 2017
I've been through a few mods and I usually go through a pair of batteries a day. This mod really gets the most out of the batteries while providing pretty consistent hits. The button and textured feel of the mod is above reproach. True that it does not have a USB port for charging, but I rarely use that feature anyway in any mod. My only complaint about this mod is that the battery compartment is very compact. Any extra thickness of the batteries will get them stuck in the mod. A few taps and the batteries will come out, so not too big an issue. This is, without a doubt, the best mod I have ever used.
Posted by Adolfo Dominguez on Jun 28th 2017
I bought this mod after trying it on one of my local stores, feels great, a little heavier, but the construction is amazing and the grip and size is great
Best Mod Ever
Posted by Unknown on Jun 23rd 2017
I normally don't write reviews, however this mod is the absolute best. The width is slim enough that it provides a good fit in hand unlike other bulkier mods. The fire button has a great feel to it. I like the off an on switch compared to the old pressing the fire button 5 times routine. The steam punk design is sweet, and provides for a textured grip. The only set back is that it does not have a usb charge function, however it has used less battery power per daily use when compared to my older mod that I ran at the same output. I absolutely love the brass color. It has a heavy and solid feel.
Best in Class, hands down
Posted by Anthony Bateman on Jun 21st 2017
I have had many mods and have enjoyed most of them, but this Nano 120W is the best. Yes it has a little weight to it, but it feels solid in your hand, the design in very cool and who doesn't love an actual on-off switch.
Love My Nano Steampunk !!
Posted by Barbara on Jun 12th 2017
I came across this mod while browsing through reviews and fell in love. Its original. Its solid. Hefty. I always get compliments on its appearance. I was telling my brother about it with such enthusiasm, that he ended up purchasing one as well! Would definitely suggest the purchase.
Love this mod
Posted by Joe on Jun 11th 2017
This is my #1 mod I love the physical on off switch. This has everything it fits very good in my hand. The design is awesome the detail is exquisite. Definitely glad I got this only con I can see is no USB charge but for me I never charge batteries in my mod
Great Mod, excellent price.
Posted by Chris H. on Jun 8th 2017
This mod is 100% steel, its heavy, it looks good and feels great. The display is clear, the buttons are solid and it has an on/off switch which is cool. And it boots up quick. When you set this rig down on the table it stays. People will notice you with this box. The only con i would give is the company and product name one the sides make it look a little cheap. Other than that this is a great mod. Thank you Vapewild, you guys and girls are always competitive in pricing and products.
Can't Beat it for the Price
Posted by Jack Wright on Jun 6th 2017
I really, really love this mod. In fact, I like it so much I got three of them. It has a lot of weight to it which some people count as a con but I really like it, it has a great hand feel to it. The grooves provide a nice grip and I find myself running my finger over them at times. The back side that's opposite from the fire button has a perfect curve that forms to your hand really well. The menu system is also incredibly intuitive, effective, and easy to use. Gripes with this one are extremely bit picky but you should know that the copper and bronze colors will fade really quickly in the places that your hand touches it (which is most of the mod) will fade to a dirty black-ish color and don't hold the original color for long at all. I think those are the two coolest colors out of the box but the stainless ones also have a smoother feel to them which is nice, and their color holds well. The battery door is also very loose and seemingly fragile when there are no batteries in the mod but once you pop your batteries in it is very sturdy and doesn't budge, though it does poke out a tiny bit from the bottom. There is definitely no better mod on the market for the money and I would recommend this one to anyone without hesitation. If you're looking at it and reading this review you're obviously already intrigued by the design, and I can assure you that the performance is exceptional. Pick one of these up and vape wild.
This mod and Vape Wild ..you already know!
Posted by Jeff Bowen on May 31st 2017

Best mod purchase I've ever made
Posted by Tommy T. on May 26th 2017
This is an amazing device at a great price point.
It is by far the best mod I have ever purchased and I currently own 15 and have owned around 50. For this to make it to the top of my list speaks volumes especially considering it cost a third the price of some of my other mods.
PLEASE BE AWARE! (Great Product!)
Posted by Eric Gaughan on May 25th 2017
OK, just a RL story I suppose...
Saw this, watched video reviews and all that, prior to ordering..
Currently my favorite MOD!! Just love it, but, moments after ordering, it occurred to me.. There IS NO CHARGE PORT! Cannot charge this mod, meaning.. upon purchasing.
You will also want to order 2 seta of batteries as well as a charger! Charge lasts for days, the MOD itself has many options for all levels of vapers (like that's even a thing).The build is great, everything works, it's my favorite MOD I own!
Just figured I would offer a heads up :-)
It is wonderful, but be prepared. (also it's heavy as hell, which I don't really mind, but ya know). 10/10, just don't spend your last few bucks on it, because you'll have more stuff to buy. ;-) It outperforms and is more customizable than anything else I own, (but I also don't drop 200 bucks on mods, because eff that mess!). Cheers!
Posted by Anthony Morgan on May 25th 2017
I finally got this, popped the batteries, put a tank full of circus bear, and started vaping after i turned it up to 60 watts. the flavor blew me away. so far, i'm one happy camper, i mean vaper lol
Only one issue
Posted by Josh on May 24th 2017
Great mod, love the look and feel. Only issue is a leaky 510 connection.
Absolutely Love It!!!
Posted by Strobel Boatner on May 20th 2017
So excited about this mod. Sleek, durable and easy to use. Nice heft and love the look. Instant fire and hits like a tank. Thanks VW for the best customer service in the world. Kudos to Tammy for all her help.
Posted by Mary Waltz on May 18th 2017
I love everything about this mod. It has a great design and it's functionality is excellent. I love the way it looks and feels!
Nano is a beast
Posted by Josh Adams on May 18th 2017
This mod Works beautifully with a good RDA
Posted by Bryan on May 17th 2017
This is an incredible mod with the on/off switch and the true power wattage available. Temp control does not work so well but as a wattage mod this rocks. I love it. Very durable.
Posted by Melinda Jones on May 15th 2017
Great mod, fast fire response. Durable but so very heavy. ! I personally don't care for,it because of the weight . Other than that its awesome !
My Hubby loves it.
Posted by Shelley on Apr 29th 2017
My husband needed a new mod after his extra one died on him. I knew he wanted one with weight and he only likes mods with a metal cover. After looking around for one I found this. He LOVES it! He places one of his RDA’s on there and stated it was perfect and was grateful. The on/off switch is perfect and overdue from the basic tap 5 times. The fire button is in a comfortable place. The look and style of this mod is gorgeous. He has the vintage stainless steel (that I picked out. He never knew I was getting him one) I hear the temp control on this thing can be misleading, but I hear others say it’s fine. Never matted to us, he only uses WATT regardless. The screen his basic, has a percentage on how much battery power is remaining. Shows the resistance the settings etc, you can even save your settings. This offers all bells and whistles that most mods have today. Just note if you don’t own (and you should invest in one for many reasons) a battery charging bay, this has no USB port for charging or software updates. The 2 18650 batteries fit nicely inside with no rattling from the bottom door. The user manual is basic and easy to follow for people that want to play with all the settings. Thank you Vape Wild for placing this in your stock, this was perfect for him.
