Updated on: 2019-09-28

Intro

What’s up everyone? Deucesjack at Vapinginsider.com. I got a new Smok tank for you today. I got the Smok TFV8 Baby V2. Shocked I even remembered that. I can’t keep up with all these Baby Princes, cloud beasts and all that nonsense. I wish they’d come up with some more distinguishable names.

All that aside, this one’s a 25.4 mm tank at the base, 30 mm in the middle by the bubble glass there. 5 ml capacity with the bubble glass, locking top cap, 8 coils available for this V2. The coils come in different colors. I’m going to show you all the colors down low. Let’s not waste any time. We’ll fill it up, we’ll come back on top, we’ll vape on it, talk about it, cons, pros, and then we’re out of here. I’m going to see you down low.

From Top to Bottom

Everyone, welcome to the down low portion of this video. Today, we’re going to be going over the Smok TFV8 Baby V2. Check it out man, I got the matte black one max mesh. This is new, I’ve never seen that before – antibacterial medical cotton.

On the side of the box you can see that it comes with two different mesh coils. You get the V2A1, which is a 0.17 ohms single mesh coil, good for 90-140, best range of 110-130. You also get the V2A2, which is a 0.2 ohm coil, good for 50-80W with a best of rating from 65-75W. Kind of cool, man. I’m diggin it. I really am.

Over here, you got a scratch-and-check, as well as a barcode. On the other side, it goes over some of the specs and features. Pause it right here if you want to read it. Let’s open this thing up and see what we got. Got a little bit of silica gel, let’s get rid of that. Look at that, beautiful. Beautiful matte black tank. I’m really diggin that. I really am. I love it. Take the foam insert out. Get a bunch of spare o-rings and a spare gasket. You get a spare straight glass. That’s nice. You get a warning card for when you lose flavor, as well as a QC card. File that to the side. TFV8 Baby instruction manual. Here is your spare coil, this is the A2 double mesh. Check that out, we already went over the ratings. Nice big juice ports. Look at all that cotton and that ledge in there for the juice. Fantastic, I enjoyed this coil. I got this with the Smok Species Kit. Definitely enjoyed it a lot.

Let’s check out the tank itself. Am I digging that matte black finish. What a beautiful job on that. Drip tip is a proprietary drip tip. I don’t like that, but what are you going to do? Looks like Smok is deciding to change some things up. Got two o-rings here holding this drip tip ring in place. It is very comfortable though, I will give it that. Locking slider cap. Here is your little button right here. You push that, slide it open, and then you can fill. Notice the gasket is on the other side of the slider. So that’s kind of cool, the way they did that. That’s a little different.

Nice big port. You can get a needle nose or or a glass stripper in there. Snap it shut, like that, and it don’t move. It’s locked into place. Bubble glass, pre installed. I like that. bottom airflow right here. Got like a trapezoid type shape. Stoppers on the end of the airflow. Whatever you adjust on one side, happens on all three sides. It’s a triple bottom airflow tank.

On the bottom here, we got designed by Smok, gold-plated 510 connection, insulated ring around it, stainless steel threading around that. Top that base off, take it off, just like that. There is your single A1 mesh coil that we already went over the specs in the intro. Check that out, nice big mesh coil. Plenty of cotton. Big, big wicking slots right there, definitely digging that.

Smok sent me a bunch of different coils. Check this one out. This one’s the gold. Same thing as the other coils, but it’s gold plated. This is the triple. This is the A3, the triple mesh coil. Kind of nice, man. This one is 0.15 ohm, good for 80-130W with a best-of rating of 100-120W. Kind of cool. If you want to rock a little bit of gold inside your tank, you simply put this in like that. Install your tank, and now you got a little bit of gold in the middle. Not bad, kind of different. I like that.

The other thing they sent me is they sent me these rainbow coils. Here, this is the A1 rainbow. Same exact coil, just with a different finish. Now the same thing applies. You want to rock a little rainbow in your life, put the rainbow coil in. Put it in there, and then you got some rainbow going on in the middle of your tank. Kind of cool, man. I’m diggin that, I gotta say.

Let’s cut back on top, let’s vape on this. Let’s talk about it, cons, pros. We’re out of here. See you back on top.

General Thoughts

Everyone, we’re back on top with the Smok TFV8 Baby V2 . Boy is that a mouthful. It’s available in matte black which I am rocking right now on my Squid Industries double-barrel special edition. When I saw that matte black tank, I said, “I got the perfect mod for this.” Right now, I got it on there, it’s ohming out at 0.14 and I’m rocking it out at a hundred watts. You saw the cloud production. It’s a steller for sure. Like I said, it’s available in matte black, green, gold, blue, red, stainless steel, rainbow, and white. You don’t see a lot of white tanks out there, so that’s kind of cool. Comes with two mesh coils included, the single and the double.The triple is a separate purchase, but I showed it to you, that’s the one I’m vaping on right now. I got to tell you, the flavor on this triple is just fantastic. Right up there with the FreeMax FireLuke Mesh Pro and the Falcon Mesh coils. That’s how good the flavor is, I’m telling you.

Cons

Let’s get into the cons and the pros.

First con’s going to be, I hate the new proprietary drip tip with that little nub sticking up. Smok, why did you even change that? Everybody loved your drip tips, why would you change the one thing that everybody loves about your tanks? It doesn’t make sense. It’s a comfortable drip tip, don’t get me wrong, I just don’t like proprietary drip tips so I got to give it a con.

Other con’s going to be, when the coil’s on the way out, like most mesh coils, did you ever notice when mesh coils are on the way out, they start to leak a bit? You start seeing leaking out of the air flow. Well, this one is no different. It does the same thing.

The other con’s going to be, with the tank wide open, watch this, look. You hear that? Tank wide open – man, this thing’s kind of loud. It really is. When you close it down a little bit, it gets a little lower, but it almost has that slight like, “Hey, I wanna whistle.” I wish the air flow was just a little less noisy. It’s still smooth and there’s plenty of it, but it’s a little bit on the loud side.

Let’s move on to the pros, because there’s plenty of them.

Pros

First pro’s going to be great capacity, 5 ml’s. That’s a pro.

Awesome family of coils. There’s 8 coils available for this thing and it comes in three different colors. You can get them in stainless steel, gold, or rainbow. That’s kind of cool.

Triple coil is absolutely fantastic. We’re going to give them a pro on that, even though it’s not in the kit. So just remember, you’ve got to buy that as a separate purchase.

I love the looks of the tank. It’s got that compact stubby look to it, great job on that, pro.

Locking top cap, that’s a pro.

It’s got a beautiful finish. The matte black on this is just gorgeous. It held up really nice in my ultrasonic cleaner so I’m going to give them a pro on that.

Tons of colors available, we went over them already.

Great flavor on that triple coil. Did I say that already? Let me tell you something, I can’t stress it enough. That triple coil has fantastic flavor.

Coil longevity has been pretty good. I’ve been getting at least 10 days out of one of those triple coils so I’m going to give them a pro on that.

The coils are rated accurately, that’s a pro.

The coils wick fast. You saw those huge wicking ports, man. I’ve been chain vaping the hell out of this thing. I cannot get this triple coil to dry hit, that’s a pro.

Smooth airflow and tons of it, pro.

Drip tip is comfortable even though it’s proprietary, so that’s a pro.

The new larger fill port with the gasket on the other side of the slider. I like it. It’s easy to fill. It gives you a little bit more space. Good job on that, Smok. That’s a pro. Like I said before, I just love the compact look of this thing, the look of this tank is just phenomenal.

Conclusion

Now, I know, in closing, everyone gives Smok hate they really do. I see it on the forums all the time and everything. I think a lot of it is unjustified. I think some people are just– they get one bad experience and they’re like, they blow it out of proportion like they do on everything in social media. But I’m going to tell you right now, straight up, and you guys know I give it to you straight. This is one of the best sub-ohm tanks on the market right now. Definitely a top 5 tank of the year without a doubt.
