The pod is held in the battery with a magnetic connection.x-pod magnetic pod

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 43 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 last year and have started to move up in the shiny shiny gadget department and love vaping! I have finally stopped smoking as of February 2018 and that is all thanks to vaping! I am a huge dog lover and volunteer for my local dog rescue.


  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!
