As mentioned this houses 2×18650 batteries which of course are not included and these have a parallel configuration (the battery capacity and Amp output are doubled but the voltage is the same as a single battery).clutch x18 batteries

You also have adjustable battery contacts accessed by turning the screws on the base of the mod.clutch x18 contact adjustment

The battery housing (or sled) is made from a commercial grade 3D printing construction.

To access the batteries and other internal components the mod side panels are removable.clutch x18 dual gunmetal

The clever part of this kit is the width increase depending on which side panels you use.clutch x18 doors

The standard panels make the mod 25mm wide – ideal for atomisers up to 25mm diameter.

However if you use larger atomisers the included thicker panels will increase the mod width to allow use with a 28mm atomiser without overhang.clutch x18 red gunmetal

The body is made from solid billet Aluminium which is machined, shot blasted and anodised.

The 510 connection is a hybrid type which means the top of the batteries directly send power to the 510 positive pin of the atomiser. This means you must choose your atomiser carefully to make sure there is plenty of insulation and a good clear distance between the positive 510 pin and the outer negative connector. A hybrid connection reduces the resistance in the circuit by keeping all components to a minimum.clutch x18 contacts

Talking of internal resistance – the contacts in the mod are either brass or solid silver – again to improve conductivity for maximum output.clutch x18 internals

You cannot control the output – as this is a mechanical mod – the output will be basically whatever the batteries can provide. This output will decrease as the battery charge drops.clutch x18 blue

The clutch fire button is also compatible with the Clutch and Clutch Topside SQ devices to allow more option for customisation.

You also have a safety lock to lock the fire button to prevent accidental firing.clutch x18 components

A fuse is included to help improve safety which has a 37A rating. You can buy a bypass plate separately if you want to remove the fuse from the circuit completely.

Sadly as pointed out on the video below the fuse is held in by Torx screws – they include 5 spare fuses and screws but no screwdriver!

Here is an introduction video from Co-designer Mike Vapes introducing the X18 mod…

There are 5 colour options to choose from: Black, Red, Blue, Green and Gunmetal.

My name is Michelle - I am 45 and an engineer and Technical Author by trade. I started vaping many years ago in the days of Tornado tanks, Ego batteries and Variable Voltage. My journey in vaping began again a few years ago and have started to move up in the shiny shiny gadget department and love vaping! I have finally stopped smoking as of June 2019 and that is all thanks to vaping! 20mg Nicotine Salts are my hero! Oh and I am partial to a nice pod mod!
