Review of SMOK TFV8 Cloud Beast tank
For vaping extremists who like to push the boundaries of high-powered vaping, the SMOK TFV8 Cloud Beast Tank has these needs covered. Featuring an installed 0.15Ω Octuple coil head — yes, eight coils — rated at an incredible 50-260W (and an ideal target range of 120-180W).
Its unmatched performance in the vapor production arena will impress even the most die-hard cloud chasers, while its convenient, 5.5ml top-filling tank makes it the perfect “on-the-go” pairing for any high-powered device. As the name suggests, this tank atomizer was designed with cloud chasers in mind and has a vapor output that is hard to beat.
Design of the TFV8 is thoughtful and refined, with precise and robust build quality. For instance, the patented swiveling cap top fill of the TF-series — already one of the best top fill methods on the market — has been improved by increasing the size of the eliquid slot. The TFV8 is another very well-made offering from SMOK. In my opinion, it’s the best built tank in SMOK’s entire sub ohm tank and RTA lineup.
Surprisingly, although this tank was designed with a focus on vapor production, the flavor experience is actually pretty intense at higher wattages, which is a pleasing feature of this already “beastly” unit. It comes with preinstalled dual Clapton coils for ease of use but it can also be used as a rebuildable atomizer thanks to the included turbo RBA head that comes standard with the package.
As far as I’m concerned, the main criticism of the originalTFV4 sub-ohm clearomizer tank was its tendency to go through e-liquid like there was no tomorrow. Sure, it produced an impressive vaping experience with intense flavor and dense, saturated vapor, but the tank had to be refilled every time you turned around.
The TFV8 tank takes that to new heights (or depths). We could jokingly assert that the TFV8 tank is more like an RDA dripper, but rather than having to re-drip 15 drops of eliquid every five minutes, you have to refill the tank with 5ml of eliquid every half hour. That’s an exaggeration, of course, but to suggest that the TFV8 is a thirsty tank is an understatement.
