Ordered this a few months ago, and it was great for the first month. I'm still generally happy with it, but about 5 weeks in, problems with the button started and have steadily gotten worse. The button intermittently stops working and won't fire at all. There doesn't seem to be any pattern to it, and no way to fix the problem when it occurs. Online research also hasn't provided me any resolution.
I purchased this unit, and was thrilled at first. Great cloud production, felt great in the hand, good tank capacity...
After 90 days, the unit died. It would no longer charge.
I attempted to contact Tesla through email, chat, and Facebook.
It became VERY VERY apparent that Tesla will ONLY acknowledge people praising them.
Any questions on quality, customer concerns, issues with a product, will be ignored or deleted.
I will NEVER own another Teslacig product.
This is my first mod, I have been doing sticks for several years.
I decided to get the Tesla Stealth after researching numerous reviews from multiple sources. I was quite surprised by the small size of the unit. It is heavy, but in a substantial way not an uncomfortable one. It fits your hand well, and the weight makes the unit feel good, not like your getting a cheap plastic imitation. The vapor volume is great, tons more than my old sticks, and I have taken to the unit right away. I have seen reviews about the rubberized coating coming off after a few weeks use, so I may get a silicon sleeve. My next accessory will be some type of belt pouch for the unit an the juice to keep them together and available.
I didn't have my hopes set too high for this little device and I was in for a big surprise. Came very fast and very nearly packaged. Device worked great straight from the box. So far after a day of use I can tell you that it blows other pens it's size out of the water. Going from a pen to this was a huge difference. Flavor is excellent and even a bit strong for my taste. Clouds are moderate to high depending o the user and the juice. I've onot encountered a couple little problems. First off, the tank leaked overnight, bit some of the blame can be put on me for that. The only other issue I can seem to think of was be careful to not screw the tank in too tightly because you will have a very hard time getting it back out in one piece.
Loved it when I first got it. Lots of clouds, easy top fill, small profile. Everything I wanted. Three months later, and the colored finish is coming off and now it doesn't fire at all. It was firing intermittently the. When I took it apart to clean it, the small screw that contacts the battery just fell out and will not screw back in..seems to be stripped. How does that happen? I have never had it out before. So this little setup is dead in the water three months after I bought it.
Great starter for someone looking to step up from a pen to a mod. I had a problem with breaking tanks in the pens, no matter which type I had, so the protected tank design is perfect for me. Solid, simple design is plug and vape. Shipping was extremely fast, standard shipping got to me in 2 days! (glad I didn't pay for 2 day lol)
Easy to use, works well in dress pants no dripping and it vapes amazing well. Got the black one at first and once I got used to it I was hooked. Came back and got a blue one to match my truck and some more coils.
I bought this small kit so it would fit in my purse easily, which it does. I am satisfied with the clouds and the flavor from it. I think the complete kit was a good value, especially with free shipping. It came with a coil installed and also a spare. That's good. The only downside is no screen or ability to adjust the wattage/voltage. Also, without a readout, you don't know when the battery life is running low. I was used to having a readout and seeing the data, and it never occurred to me this one wouldn't have that. So, not 5 stars, but close.
I love this little mod. Really didn't think it would do what they said it would do. This little thing is powerful and smooth. The taste is amazing. I will be buying more.
Its a really impressive mod
Bought the kit first and loved it so much I bought 3 more tanks (received quickly). I've the Eleaf Stick, Eleaf Pico, Kbox 70, Kanger Drip 160 and several Kanger subvods. I like this little stealth the best for when I'm going out. Fits nicely in my purse. I use an old mini makeup brush pouch to carry it in to protect the finish. I'd compare the Shadow Tank equally to my Aspire Clieto tanks, as well as, my Melo 2 & 3, Kanger Nanos and my Playboy Vixen. I plan on ordering a second Stealth kit with more tanks. Can't beat the prices. Great taste and plenty of clouds. I've had no problem with air flow and love how easy it is to fill them. Zero leakage. Favorite part is how the design protects the tank. Battery lasts all day and the tank holds enough I don't need to carry extra juice with me. Can't say that about my Melo tanks.
This piece is amazing it hits so smooth and its not a huge mod is so small and easily hid it makes a great piece for at work or anywhere really 5 stars all day.
Easy to use and it vapes amazing
When I ordered my stealth on the 28th of June it was on back order. They told me they wasn't really sure when they would revive more. So I was very surprised when it showed up July 1st. So far I haven't had any problems with it any it's the best vape I've used so far. So I give it a 5 star all around.
I have one of the mods that this copies the design from mini-ecigs, which is an expensive mode. I was excited to see this because I have had really good luck with Tesla batteries and this one costs 1/6 as much.
The good: It's tiny! Can completely hide in your hand, the Stealth name is well deserved. Good battery life, just a hair better than say your mid-end 18650. The drip tip is really cool.
The bad: rubber finish, the tank/atomizers ...
The tank isn't a bad design, and is easy to fill. But it just isn't the quality of a kanger, or some of the other Tesla tanks (the vortex is a much better design despite being a bottom fill.) Airflow is very limited, and the intake holes could be a little higher so they are less restricted.
Atomizers ... can't find replacements! Also, unless something has changed, Tesla doesn't sell rebuildable atty's, never have.
Where this kit earns the two star rating is the finish. After a few weeks of use I started noticing little nicks in the finish. Not particularly surprising since it's in EDC use, sharing a pocket with keys or a phone. But, instead of just being minor scratches the rubber coating started delaminating, peeling off in big swatches. If you have ever used plastidip it is a very similar finish, maybe a little more durable. The body is made from stamped steel, and isn't particularly high-quality--some areas had more imperfections and in those areas the rubber coating actually was sticking really well, but where the metal was smooth the rubber came right off. I am not exagerating, it's possible to strip this thing bare using just a fingernail.
I decided to go ahead and remove the finish entirely on the sides and see if polishing it would save the appearance. Now it looks really bad. Maybe I can save this by roughing up the metal and putting a few thin coats of plastidip on there. I am not too hopeful though.
If you are careful with this mod and treat it well it is wonderful. Don't expect much from the tank, there are better choices out there. I can't recommend against this, it's cheap and fills a niche that previously I was using a e-go one with the 1100 battery, this is way better.
After some experimentation here are some tips on using this for stealth vaping: You have three problems: vapor, noise, and holding something suspicious looking in your hand ...
- A great matching tank for this mod is the kanger protank 4, better quality all-around. Never leaked on me. The ceramic OCC coils are the quietest I have used, so quiet that I am not worried about taking a pull in the office and getting noticed.
- If you make your own e-juice a batch of 100% PG results in almost no vapor. I have only seen one offering for this "clear steam" which is very pricy, more than a dollar / ml. My personal preference is menthol crystals for flavor, and high nicotine because I am taking less hits when I am stealth vaping.
First of all the shipping was first rate by direct vapor!
So, when I ordered this it was basically on a whim. Thinking that this lil mod would be a cute one to try. Just so you know I own 3 Reuleaux, the vaporesso target and tarrot, the Hells Gate 200 touch screen and a Laisimo L1 ....as a matter of fact I purrchased the newest Rx200s in the same order as this Tesla Stealth.
I was shocked and pleasantly surprised with the Stealth! If you r sitting on the fence about ordering this mod....don't be.....go ahead and order it! I ordered the blue complete kit. I just can't get over the quality build and small size of this. Most surprising is the flavour, clouds and sheer power I'm getting out of this unit....
So far i have been using the Shadow tank that came in the kit and actually so far I'm impressed with it as well.....NO LEAKS! They really hit the mark with this unit!
I will be ordering a couple more! I will be doing a few builds on my RDAs for this Stealth and do a follow up so that i can give you the full insight as to my experience with this amazing mod.
Everyone have a great weekend!

Please Note: E-liquid Labeled Acetyl-Propionyl Free means that particular e-liquid DOES NOT contain acetyl propionyl
Acetyl Propionyl (pronounces Ah-see-tel Pro-pee-ih-nil) is typically used as a solvent for cellulose acetate, lacquers, paints, inks, and is also used as a starting agent for drugs, dyes, and pesticides. Most commonly, it is known as an artificial flavor, particularly within the vaping industry for e-liquids. It has a flavor and aroma profile that have been known to carry a particularly sweet, creamy, buttery, cheesy, and fruity flavor, with notes of caramel.
Currently there is some controversy surrounding the use of this substance in vapor products, though no concrete evidence has emerged to explicitly label it as harmful. There has been discussion of acetyl propionyl causing damage to the respiratory tract, and it has been known to harm the lungs in studies done on animals. For the time being, until further research emerges, we will carry e-liquid brands that contain acetyl propionyl, but we will identify them as such.

Diacetyl (pronounced die-AS-i-til) is found naturally in low concentrations in foods such as butter and beer, and is a byproduct of fermentation. High exposure to diacetyl in production settings has been linked to rare respiratory illnesses such as coughing, wheezing, and shortness of breath. Although the risks are much lower for vapers inhaling diacetyl-containing e-liquids, it is important to know the potential consequences of extended diacetyl inhalation. Studies have found that e-liquid containing diacetyl may cause harm to the respiratory system over time. As a result, DIRECTVAPOR will let you know which e-liquids are diacetyl-free so you can make informed decisions when selecting e-liquid.

We recommend that all newbies start off with 18mg. This is the most comparable level to a traditional cigarette and will provide the best results for those just making the switch for the first time. We offer many levels of nicotine, allowing you to truly customize your vaping experience.
The nicotine level will directly affect vaping exp and performance of your vaporizer or MOD. The term "throat hit" is commonly used to describe the intensity of your vape. As you experience with different nicotine levels, we suggest that you move slowly and do not make drastic jumps. Moving from 12mg to 18mg is recommend over jumping straight to 24mg.
As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please give us a call to speak to one of our friendly reps.
Propylene Glycol (PG):
Stronger flavor taste
Thinner e-liquid to aid in better wicking
Heavier throat hit
Vegetable Glycerin (VG):
VG has a naturally sweeter taste
Thicker e-liquid and larger vapor production
Lighter throat hit
