Full Review of the Smok TFV12 Beast Tank

SMOK TFV12 Beast Tank in blackVaping tanks are an important component in any solid vaping setup, so it’s always exciting when a new one hits the market. Recently, SMOK released its new Beast tank, and a lot of vapers immediately wondered how it could compare to the TFV8 or TFV4 tank that so many considered to be the new standard for sub-ohm vaping tanks. Of course, SMOK is one of those companies that always seems to build on whatever it did before, so there’s every reason to believe that this new tank could easily improve on previous offerings. In this SMOK TFV12 Beast Tank review, we’ll see if that’s the case.


Contents and Noteworthy Specs

When your tank arrives in your hot little hands, you’ll find some great components inside the packaging. Along with the SMOK TFV12 Beast Tank, you’ll get an installed V12-T12 0.12ohm duodenary Coil, and two optional quadruple coils: the 12-X4 0.15ohm and V12-Q4 0.15ohm.

Coils you get with the TFV12 Tank

What you get with the TFV12 kitThere’s also one replacement glass tube – always a nice addition, spare parts, and the obligatory user manual. The device is made from stainless steel, so you know it’s built to last. The tank measures a full 27mm by 70 mm, can hold as much as 6ml of your favorite e-juice, and has 501 threading to make it compatible with a wide range of mod components.

Now, about those coils. If you were wondering about the duodenary coil heads, let’s clear something up. SMOK went all-out and somehow managed to fit twelve coils in that single coil head. That’s a substantial advancement from their previous eight-coil setup and should offer the more adventurous vapers something new to play with for the foreseeable future.

If your more into RDTA’s then they have just released the SMOK Skyhook RDTA Tank which might be worth a look.


That Larger Tank Size

Smok TFV12 statistics and sizesIt’s a sad testament to the current state of global regulations that so many people are going to be excited by the sheer capacity of this tank, but that’s where we are. Since the European market has gone to such lengths to rein in tank size, we’ve seen a lot of smaller tank capacities hits the marketplace in the last year. It’s always nice to see these larger tanks continue to show up and to know that there are still manufacturers making products that people want to use.

This is a critical factor for sub-ohm vapers, of course, since that style of vaping goes through so much e-liquid on a regular basis. No offense to the European regulators, but the fact is that most of us don’t want to constantly refill our vape tanks just because some bureaucrats decided that they think we can’t be trusted with larger tanks. We’re all adults, and pretty confident that we can make those kinds of lifestyle choices on our own – thank you very much.

Anyway, this tank will hold up well under those intense vaping sessions, with the best box mod you have and proved very handy in our test runs. It seals up nicely, to ensure that there’s no leakage, and the coils handled the power and heat without incident. Apparently, SMOK says that the tank has been designed to resist the heat and limit the possibility of an explosion – not that I’ve worried about exploding vape tanks. Still, assurances are always welcome, even when they’re providing me guarantees about things that haven’t been keeping me up at night.

Selection of coils for the TFV12

Those Coils…

SMOK also tells us that the 12-coil setup isn’t just there for aesthetics, or because someone in the company bet a friend that he could get a dozen coils to fit on the head. Instead, those extra units are there to ensure that you can get more wattage power out of the tank. The Beast is designed to handle as much as 350 watts without incident. Sure, that’s not really an issue right now, since that tolerance is far beyond the market’s capabilities right now – but that won’t always be the case. Look at it this way: with this tank, you’re ready for the future.

Overall, our impression of the SMOK TFV12 Beast Tank was a good one. It works well with a lot of different mods, appears to be leakproof, and comes with an attractive outer appearance that should satisfy every vaper’s tastes. Best of all, it offers probably the closest experience to dripping that you’re going to get with tank-based vaping. Give it a look; it’s well worth your time.
