Smoking cessation: our test of the e-cigarette Eleaf iStick TC 40 W
With the iStick TC40w, Eleaf has joined the ranks of manufacturers offering temperature control on their devices to help smokers succeed in the challenge of smoking cessation through the electronic cigarette. The marketing of this model brings to 8 the number of Mods in the iStick range. In our humble opinion, Eleaf missed the opportunity to launch a whole new product line by placing its new temperature control models under a different label than the iStick. But that’s just us, obviously !
L’iStick TC 40 W looks like the rest of the iStick range. This mode is almost identical to the’original 20 watt iStick (except for the presence of the temperature control option). Here is the full test of the device !
Eleaf iStick TC 40 W: the main technical features
L’Eleaf iStick TC 40 W is a compact box with an internal battery of 2,600 mAh. It comes with a micro USB charging cable and, thanks to its pass-through charging capability, you can continue vaping while the device is charging.

With the’With the addition of temperature control, this iStick has “given up” the variable voltage (although it is not a “standard” voltage)’It is variable in power, with a range of 1 to 40 watts in 0.1 watt increments). The temperature range is 100 ° – 315 ° C in increments of 10 °. In variable power mode, it lights standard coils with a resistance between 0.15 and 3.5 ohms. L’iStick TC40W allows you to’supply Ni200 coils from 0.05 to 1.0 ohm in temperature control mode.

The oval-shaped menu button is located between these two. You can activate or deactivate the mod by pressing the “Fire” button five times.
How the model works
To switch from variable power mode to temperature control mode, hold down the menu button for two seconds. To change the output in the chosen mode, use the “up” or “down” buttons. A simple press of these buttons changes the power in 0.1 watt increments or the temperature in 10° increments. Holding down these buttons will speed up the pace of change.
