A Temperature Control or TC Vape Mod does more than merely turn itself off if the device is becoming overheated. The user is able to dial in a specific temperature in order to establish consistent performance at that level. He enjoys several benefits from this system, all of which are common to the top ten 10 TC mods I’m about to list.
When running in TC mode, your battery uses less power. You also use less of your juice but get more out of it and are unlikely to experience the burnt flavor which accompanies e juice heated at higher watts and temperature using Kanthal coils. If you are interested in buying a TC mod, here are ten possibilities in ascending order.
Top 10 TC Vaping Mods
I’ve heard different opinions about the Smok XPro with a range of 6 to 80 watts. Smok is a reliable brand, though, and they really do care about what consumers say. Consumers voiced their desires and Smok responded by adding pass-through functionality to their XPro so you can now plug it in and vape while recharging two built-in 18650 LiPo cells. The screen shows how many puffs you have taken, volts, watts, resistance, and temperature. There is an option to run in mechanical mode too. The Smok XPro TC measures about 3 ¼” and supports coils of 0.1 ohms or higher.

My only reservation about this device is that temperature control proves you don’t need 150W to get the best out of your vapor. If you want to run it that hard, why bother with a TC box at all?
Otherwise, this is Sigelei we’re talking about; comparable with Smok in terms of reputation. Their 3-button device offers a range of 0.1 to 3 ohms, 212 to 572ºF, and 35A maximum output.
A black silicone sleeve protects and cushions a durable frame of aluminum alloy. Batteries come out through the magnetic back door. The cool-running chip identifies Ni200 coils and only runs in TC mode if that’s what your atomizer is using.

8. iStick 40 TC
Eleaf obliges individuals who yearn for color with this extension to their popular iStick series. It’s one of the smallest vape mods around, and probably one of the two smallest TC device at a fraction over 3″ long (the SMY 60 is pretty small too). Switch between temperature control and down to 0.05 ohms with a Ni200 coil or VW mode and 0.15 to 3.5 ohms. The stainless steel thread is spring loaded and an OLED screen shows your various values vividly.
7. iPV4S 120W
Once more I’m torn as to the necessity for high-watts when you’ve got a TC vaporizer at your disposal, but consumers have spoken and that’s what they want presumably. With its Yihi SX 330-V4S chip, the iPV4S supports high-quality nickel or titanium coils and shows wattage, battery life, resistance, voltage, and temperature on a clear screen. It is protected against a shorted circuit, reverse battery, low voltage, and overheating. Choose their folded look in silver or black.
6.Yihi Mini M Class
This is affordable but sturdy; in fact, sturdier in recent months with upgrades to its structure. Yihi designed an ergonomic device using a removable 18650-rated battery and gravity sensor. Run it in soft, standard, powerful, or TC mode (referred to as “joules” by Yihi). It’s upgradeable too: you don’t have to buy the next model to achieve even more wattage or resistance range. Right now that sits at 5 to 60W and 0.08 to 3 ohms inside a stainless steel/aluminum frame.
5. iPV 3 Li 165W
Okay, it’s another high-watt mod, but I can’t say “no” to this one because of the hype surrounding it. Consumers are gobbling it up and eagerly purchase the 200W upgrade now available from Yihi. Use two 18650 batteries, removed through a magnetic cover. It’s quite plain: nothing shiny or fancy in any way. That’s not a big deal, though, with 0.1-ohm capacity, a sturdy structure of billet aluminum, and the potential for 200 watts with the new chip.
4. Tesla 200W TC
There are three carbon fiber colors available for this 105-mm machine that operates at as much as 200 watts and as little as 7W. The Tesla 200W supports 0.08-ohm Ni200 coils when you are using the TC function between 200 and 600ºF, but also offers the option to use VW mode and 0.15 to 3-ohm Kanthal coils. It’s a simple, vented box made from an aluminum alloy. Tesla is very protective with safeguards against over-vaping, low resistance or low voltage, overheating, and reverse polarity.
3. HeatVape Invader
One of the leading vapor stores recently tested this device to demonstrate how durable it is. While you could tell it had taken a beating, it was also clear that the HeatVape Invader is one heck of a tough item. You can run it over with a truck, splash it, and the Invader still operates at 50 watts. With TC mode and temperature sensitive coils, it runs at 0.1 ohms, 0.16 in regular mode. The exterior is made from rubberized silicone covering a zinc alloy frame.
2. JoyeTech eVic 60W TC
It doesn’t look anything like the traditional eVic tube mod, but JoyeTech’s current version of the device is something special. I love the go-faster racing stripes against orange, white, or black. Use a control knob to adjust watts or switch to TC mode which supports 0.05-ohm coils. Read your resistance, number of puffs, temperature, watts, volts, and battery power on the lovely screen. The eVic 60W TC works with VT-Ti or VT-Ni coils.
1. SMY 60 TC
Looks have everything to do with my choice for the top spot: okay, not everything. There is so much similarity between devices, though, that Simeiyue’s TC device simply stood out. One entire face forms the color screen, unusual because it’s so big (over 1.7″) and also because of the color graphics. That’s right: there are graphics; icons besides the battery power indicator, not just numbers and letters. Choose a value of up to 600ºF as usual for this function or up to 60W. The outside is made from sturdy aluminum and zinc but you’ll want to protect the lovely screen.
