Moving on to the pod. Both types of pod have a top filling cap.

The airflow on both pods is similar – it is adjustable and is located on the base of the coil / RBA deck.x-pod airflow

The Mesh version pod has 2 replaceable coil options – 0.6ohm Mesh coil and a 1ohm mesh coil.x-pod mesh coils

You simply install the coil into the airflow base which then screws into the pod.x-pod mesh pod version

The RBA pod version has as the name implies a rebuildable coil deck. It is for a single coil with two posts.x-pod rba pod version

On the base of the deck is the adjustable airflow ring which channels the airflow up through the deck and under the coils in a honeycomb style outlet. The deck also has space for the cotton to sit.x-pod rba deck

There are 4 colours to choose from: Gun, Black, Red and White.

What a nice looking kit and seems to be full of features. One question I do have is if you can change to the other kind of pod at a later date? For instance if you bought the Mesh Version could you later on just buy the RBA pod and use it on the device you already have? I am not sure.

Anyway what do you think of the ThunderHead Creations Tauren X-Pod? Let me know in the comments below!

My name is Michelle - I am 46 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!


  1. Thats ok Michelle,Thank you, seems like a decent pod unit, I have the Pasito with the RBA deck and its a pig to build, but its getting easier and using SS316L is a bonus when building

    • Hi there – sorry I am not sure, I am seeing it in stock at some China vendors – but not all – usually as a guide it is around 2 weeks to get them from a UK Vendor when they are in stock in China?

      It looks like Vaping 101 will be getting them in stock as they have them listed on the site – just not in stock yet?

      Sorry couldn’t help you more!
