SMOK TFV-8

SMOK TFV-8 Intro

The TFV-8 Cloud Beast Tank is the 800-lb. gorilla of Chinese manufacturer SMOK’s extensive and nearly exhaustive line of “Taste Furious” (TF) sub-ohm tanks and RTAs. See my review of SMOK’s TFV4 Micro Tank for a rundown of the complete TF family of tanks.

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), the TFV8 package includes two other heads: a 0.15Ω Quadruple coil head rated at “only” 50-180W (with a target range of 90-150W), and a Turbo RBA head that comes with dual Clapton coils preinstalled (resistance of 0.28Ω and a rating 50-140W), ready to be wicked and vaped. Even the cotton is included. Also available as a separate purchase is a 0.2Ω sextuple coil head rated at 50-240W (best at 110-150W). SMOK has left no stone unturned in its intention to fulfill the wish of expert vapers for extreme performance.

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 clearo tank and RTA lineup.

The Case of the Vanishing Eliquid

SMOK TFV-8 Coils

As far as I’m concerned, the main criticism of the original TFV4 sub-ohm clearomizer tank was its tendency to go through eliquid 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.

The factory heads are huge, and whether there are 4, 6, or 8 coils inside (quadruple, sextuple, or octuple), eliquid consumption will be corresponding, which is to say, a lot — a whole lot.

Performance

SMOK TFV-8 Coils Top View

OK, the tank goes through eliquid like crazy. So what? Quarter-mile funny car dragsters use nitro for fuel and burn through about 20 gallons per run. The same inefficiency applies to an M1A2 Abrams military tank. Such vehicles are designed for power, not good mileage. So it is for the TFV8. People who buy and love the TFV8 know going in that they’ll need a 120ml bottle of eliquid by their side to keep the tank fed, and they don’t care.

In a way, the TFV8’s profligate consumption of eliquid is not a con, but rather a badge of honor — confirmation that this is one beast of a tank.

The tank was designed with cloud chasers in mind, of course — basically the TFV8 is for vapers who want the maximum possible vapor production; thus the tank’s SMOK nickname: Cloud Beast. Surprisingly, though, the TFV8 is quite versatile. Sure, it’s built to handle insanely high wattage, but the power range is actually very wide, and the tank vapes well at “lower” wattages, too. No, I wouldn’t recommend it for 50-60 watt vaping, but if 80-90 watts floats your boat, then the TFV8 is actually worth considering.

Flavor

SMOK TFV-8 Top Fill Cap

Dense, room-filling clouds are a given with the TFV8. The real question is: How’s the flavor?

For me personally, the flavor is very good — surprisingly so. Some fog machine atomizers are a bit shy on flavor. Not so the TFV4. The key word for both vapor production and flavor is “dense,” but words like rich, deep, or saturated also apply. No, the TFV8 won’t produce full flavor at 50-60 watts with any of the three multi-coil factory heads. Those huge heads require 70+ watts to get tasty. From 80W on, however, you’re pretty much home free.

In fairness, the flavor I get from the TFV8 is not significantly better than the flavor produced by many other sub-ohm clearomizer tanks. Compared to the TFV8, the flavor provided by a Uwell Crown tank, to use an obvious example, is just about the same, at least to my palate. The TFV8 might win by a nose, but it’s essentially a photo finish. And if we compare the TFV8 to the best of the current generation of RTAs or a good flavor RDA (I still love the Magma, even after two years), it’s not as close. The RTAs and RDAs still win for purity, clarity, and depth of flavor.

No, the TFV8’s métier is in-your-face intensity. The tank is designed to provide an over-the-top vaping experience, and it delivers that very well.

The Turbo RBA Deck

SMOK TFV-8 RBA Deck

I’m not generally a fan of RBA decks for sub-ohm clearomizer tanks. Too often, they’re cramped, cheap, and cheesy. The Turbo RBA deck included as a stand-alone coil head with the TFV8 is very different, however. First, it’s well-made, with nicely machined Velocity-style posts for horizontal dual coils. Second, the deck is large, relatively speaking, and easy to build.

With its preinstalled dual Clapton coils and more moderate 0.28Ω resistance, this is the best RBA deck I’ve ever used for a sub-ohm clearo tank. It’s much more like an RTA. If I end up adding the TFV8 to my regular rotation of PV/Tank setups, I’ll probably use it with the Turbo Deck. The vape quality is terrific, and, as a dual-coil deck, it’s not as thirsty as the quad or octuple coil heads. This is my preferred way of arming the TFV8 for battle.

Verdict

I don’t feel that a recommendation is necessary for the SMOK TFV8 Cloud Beast Tank. The target market for the tank is vapers who love extremes, and they already know that nothing else available among sub-ohm clearo tanks even comes close. That said, the potential market may prove larger than high-wattage cloud chasers, since the TFV8 vapes very well even at less than 100 watts.

So, rather than a recommendation, I’ll close by congratulating SMOK on pushing the envelope this far. The SMOK TFV8 may not be for everyone, but it’s really something.

  • Tony Trenkle Jr.

    Saying that TFV8 flavor might be a nose better than the Crown tank is saying something! Considering the Crown was one of the best tanks last year. I have mine coming on Monday(hopefully earlier though…) so I’m excited to try this!

    • Bill Herbst

      Ask 100 users of both tanks which has the better flavor, and I’d imagine that you might get a 50/50 breakdown. For me, it’s basically a toss-up.

      • João Garcia

        @billherbst:disqus How to prime the tfv8 ? Its just put e-liquid and wait ? how long ?
        im going to make my own e-juice, do you think its necessary to make an 70%VG to get big clouds ? or not ?
        with configuration u recommend for big intense clouds ? ( percent of VG, Watts, ohm )
        Thank you !!!

  • PHUckhed

    WHAT?

  • Johanes R. Dewanto

    …been using TFV4 for 8 months now….gotta get my hands on this TFV8 when it’s available in my country…I hope my 180w X Cube II can handle it…if not then I gotta get one of those 300w mods…..lol

  • Casey J Taylor

    Great Review Bill! I really enjoyed it. I bought the TFV8 on Friday and love it! I prefer it at 100w, it still gets decent clouds with really good flavor. One thing I’d suggest is its not for chain vapors, as the tank gets warm pretty quick and it does suck the juice especially when you get into the 150w and higher range

    • Casey J Taylor

      Oh and it’s nice to see a fellow Oregonian. I’m from Portland, now living in McMinnville.

      • Bill Herbst

        Casey,

        Hello from the dunes on the mid-coast!

        I didn’t vape the TFV8 hard enough to push it, but I can imagine how it might get pretty darn hot when chain vaping at higher wattage.

        At 150 watts, the TFV8 must be a juice siphon. LOL.

        • Casey J Taylor

          That’s exactly what it did haha, didn’t take long to get to half a tank. I’m actually going to switch over to the quad coil here shortly and compare the two. Next weekend I’ll be testing out the RBA after my kit arrives (I’ve only been vaping for 2 months).

          • Bill Herbst

            For a person who’s vaped for only two months, you’re going flat out — hell bent for leather. LOL.

            The quad coil should be a little less thirsty than the octuple coil, but not by a lot. It will probably run somewhat less hot. Both heads use a four-coil setup, but the quad is made with four single-wire coils, while the octuple is made with four dual-wire coils.

            The RBA deck on the TFV8 is very good. Building coils will be a significant step in your vaping journey. Some vapers love building, others use factory heads only. I do both.

          • Casey J Taylor

            Yeah I started with a tfv4 with the Q4 coil and ipv d3 (@ 80w), a month later I picked up the ipv 5 with pure sx tank and didn’t have much luck with it (just read your review and ordered the same cotton you used). I was a pack a day smoker now I’m down to 3mg of nicotine. Never played with the RBA deck on the tfv4 though, didn’t even think about using it honestly.

  • Michael Abrams

    Nice review, much appreciated. If I’m seeing this correctly, the tfv8, like the 4, does not have the potentially failure prone juice flow control? Also, looks easy to wick the rba section.

    Do you think the tfv8 is a good alternative to the 25mm rta tanks, for someone not too patient with tinkering? I like the tfv4 just fine, but want something rebuildable for the long run.

    • Bill Herbst

      That’s right, the TVF8 has no adjustable eliquid flow control. This is true in general of sub-ohm clearomizer tanks designed to use factory coil heads. As for RTAs and other tanks that have adjustable eliquid flow control, I put up with it as just one more thing to have to double-check and keep track of. (I like the approach of the Augvape Boreas RTA, which gangs together air intake and eliquid flow to the coils using the same control ring rather than two separate adjusting rings.)

      RTAs are, of course, a different animal than sub-ohm clearo tanks, but the TVF8 does a better job than most of crossing over into hybrid territory, since it comes with a high-quality, spacious building deck.

      Last year, my preference was for clearo tanks. While I own many of the previous generation RTAs, I wasn’t thrilled with any of them. 2016’s new crop of RTAs is very, very good, though, and has come close to changing my opinion.

      If you want to buy only one tank, the TFV8 is a good choice.

      • Arthur Vandelay

        I have found those “juice flow controls” – the ones that employ little slots on the sides of the chimney sections with little doors that close when one turns the tank around, do not work at all (a good percentage of newer tanks are using those now). I had a “griffin 25” that employs that kind of “juice control” – I closed off the juice slots and kept vaping for 1/2 an hour after they were closed, with NO burned hits or even close to it… Even after the 1/2 hour it was still going strong vaping like there was no tomorrow. Proves to me those controls aren’t worth a damn. If they actually worked, the tanks that use them would NEVER leak and once “closed” after a few hits you should get burning cotton due to lack of juice to the coils.. That griffin 25 sitting on the top of the mod overnight with the juice control closed and airflow closed flooded out and leaked the entire tank out the air holes (which were “closed”). That griffin 25 was wicked according to YT vids I saw that supposedly addressed leaking problems due to wicking those tanks. Obviously not worth the price of admission in my opinion.

        I have a UD Goliath V1 that I covet, that has a juice control that actually works. When I’m done vaping turn off the juice, vape out the remaining juice left in the chamber ( a few extra hits) and throw the thing in your pocket. NO LEAKING/FLOODING at all. Alas the Goliath has a super small build deck and 3.5ml capacity – would like a nice stable NON LEAKING tank with some more capacity, and a bigger/easier build deck.

        Now I’m looking at the TFV8. Could care less about the pre-made coils. Those things are just a marketing ploy to keep you spending money with the vendors. The RBA section is what i’m interested in. BUT I cant help wondering how the design of this thing is not going to simply flood out and leak all over when left in a pocket or on the desk on a mod over night. I hear tell, when taking the O-Rings off the pre-made coils (which are beefier than the rings that come on the RBA) and putting them on the RBA, with proper tightening of the RBA section (not over tightening) and then stuffing the entirety of the juice wells with cotton, this thing will not piss juice everywhere when laid on its side or left overnight. Can anyone corroborate this ??

        I DO NOT WANT TO SPEND GOOD MONEY ON ANOTHER LEAKING POS LIKE THE GRIFFIN 25.

  • vex

    the rba coil does it leak? how does it compare to the other rtas in “leakage”?

    • Bill Herbst

      Mine hasn’t leaked.

      The way I see it, leaking is not generally a consistent phenomenon. Particular units of some tanks leak while other units of the same tank don’t. Some tanks leak for some vapers but don’t leak for others.

      • vex

        thanks for the responce may i ask in your personal experience what is the least leak prone rta?

        • Bill Herbst

          Of the 2016 crop of RTAs I’ve reviewed here on Vaping360, most haven’t leaked at all.

          I’d mention the SMOK TF-RTA and TF-RDTA, Augvape Alleria, Sense Herakles RTA (2 and 4), and Ijoy Limitless RDTA as particularly good RTAs that don’t leak (at least for me).

  • Prince

    Thanks for the not video reviews. I love reading through your blog.

    • Bill Herbst

      Thanks.

      Video reviews are great for many things, among them hands-on, step-by-step visual tutorials. I’m a writer, though, and not a video personality, so my approach to reviewing products is different. I’d like to think there’s still a place for the written word to serve the vaping community in our video-driven world.

  • Kimo Kiyabu

    Worst tank ever. Had it a month and both glass tubes broke. Since the company is in China it’s taking forever to figure out how to replace the tube.

    • Ryan Dempster

      You need to be more careful with your tanks then. You can’t blame a company for your clumsiness.

      I just ran into the same issue regarding glass cracking..
      [All within a one week time frame of dealing with the tanks]
      We sell the TFV8’s in our shop.. The second I tried one, I was sold.
      Out of handfuls of rebuildable tanks, I really enjoyed this one the most.
      That was.. Until a few tanks came back with hairline cracks in the glass..
      Yes, care must be taken not to over-tighten the tank components, etc.
      but, I even had this happen to two of mine. And this blew my mind..
      In 6 years, I have never ever broken a single tank glass..
      Extreme care [probably more OCD] is used with all of my gear..
      This was no different. Components snug – not tight, never dropped, etc.
      #1 tank glass must have been cracked from the factory..
      I saw the crack immediately while inspecting..
      #2 tank glass was cracked from the factory [at the very bottom/base]
      [Such a fine hair-line crack that it can be felt, but, it does not leak.. Yet..]
      So now, I have a customer with a new tank he can’t use due to cracks..
      I give him one of my personal replacements..
      Now he’s able to keep using his, but, I’m forced to baby mine now
      since the crack has grown a bit [but still not enough to cause leaking]

      3+ within a week?
      I’m starting to question the OEM glass too..

      I’m waiting on the next shipment to get here so I can get my new kit..
      Sadly, I still can’t find just replacement glass..
      [Which is what I was doing on the net when I stumbled across this thread]

      I’ve been going back and forth between the TFV8 and the
      Steam Crave Aromamizer Supreme trying to see which one I liked more..
      While the Aromamizer rocks, it has tendency to leak with the initial fill..
      The TFV8 has never ever leaked. But.. That glass.. Ahhh!!

      Sam –

  • Senior Vapor

    The glass will crack from the heat, my original tank cracked also it had nothing to do with user error aka dropping the tank or mod. When I vaped the octuplets 120 watts & up my tank cracked within the first week , I was vaping between 150-200 watts when I felt juice on my fingers and saw the tank cracked, just hope the spair tank that came in the kit holds up. Not a deal breaker because this tank kicks ass but it is a con.

    • Lex Luger

      Yea you just gotta make sure you tighten down the tank nice n snug from both ends as it’s meant to be tight as the coils are so huge with such amazing air flow they pretty much gotta be nice n tight twist n tighten from both ends of the tank and this thing works great absolutely the best sealed no leak tank I’ve ever had and also another thing to keep in mind is to make sure the air flow is completely closed off when filling the tank as that’s the other big reason some people are experiencing intermediate leaking issues but aside from that I’m using the tank with my koopor primus 300watt and it’s absolutely amazing right about 140 watts on the t8 coil head is a very nice mix of vapor plus flavor but yet not too hot and also I seem to be getting nearly a full day of moderate to heavy vaping on my triple samsung 25r 18650 batteries and thats incredible at 140 watts with an occasional 170 to 180 watt vape here and there and also at 140 watts mine actually isn’t using all that much juice anymore than any other tanks I’ve used so yea THE BEST COMBINATION ON THE MARKET RIGHT NOW IS THE TFV8 WITH THE 300WATT KOOPOR PRIMUS BOX MOD as it’s incredible and all the complaints about the battery door are completely unfounded as it’s a non issue with my koopor primus as my battery door stays nice n snug no rattles not loose at all it’s absolutely perfect

      ALSO IM NOT SURE WHAT YOU’RE TALKING ABOUT WITH THE GLASS BREAKING AS MINE DOESN’T EVEN GET HOT N THAT’S ALL DAY VAPING 140 WATTS WITH OCCASIONALLY VAPING AROUND 170 TO 180 so I’m just wondering if maybe people are purchasing fake tanks that aren’t authernc and or something or as I said there not tightening down the coil snug as well as making sure they tighten both ends of the tank always tighten from both ends and make sure to close off the air flow completely when filling the tank and aside from that I’m totally confused as this is the most well built solid tank I’ve ever used absolutely not one single drop of leakage

      • Ozarkian

        So much spam

  • Vape Enthusiast

    Every coil I have put in this tank has leaked, some coils so much that it would drain the entire tank in less than 20 minutes. Keep trying fix leak methods on reddit and haven’t had too much luck yet, really disappointed in the quality of the seals on the coils.

  • Church57388

    I found mine leaking a lot and tried tweaking with the little metal mires sticking out of the rubber gasket on the bottom. I tucked them in and so far no leaks and still performs. NO glass problem here thank God but i have my TVF4 on stamdby

  • Jaack

    If you find that it is leaking, return to Smok.
    Make sure it is completely tight.
    I was also advised to ensure the airflow is closed when filling from empty. and after replacing a coil.

    Update:
    I love this item, smoking at 80w with a TC100, and it produces lots of clouds, easy to use, it comes with a lot for what you pay for it.

  • Ray Naugle

    I’ve heard nothing but good things for this tank. My decision has been made. I’m getting this with my RX200s. 😀

  • Ozarkian

    I’m loving mine with my RX200. When I first filled mine, I thought I had everything snug and the air vent closed. Came back 30 mins after prime to find half a tank of juice on my desk. Cinched everything down tighter, cleaned up , and it’s been working perfectly since then. I love it! Just tossed my cleito aspire in the parts box to use as a spare during cleaning.

  • Hellboy642

    I’m running a H-PRIV tc 220, with the tfv8, and it’s fantastic. Every now and then my juice leaks out, mostly when I throw a lot of juice in it, so I have yet to figure out how to make sure it’s completely sealed yet 😂 but still an amazing setup. I HIGHLY recommend it.

  • Pedro Luft

    I’m going from a Cubis Pro on a Joyetech eVic-VTC Mini to the TFV8 on a Rx200s.
    I only have one doubt: when you put a new coil head on the Cubis you must first put some juice on its holes to avoid dryhit, is that also necessary with the V8T… heads? Or do I just put it in dry and fill the tank (with air flow closed)?
    It must be a stupid question, but I didn’t find this info anywhere, and I don’t wanna mess up with such an amazing piece of work that is this tank.

  • Lokiican

    I’ve been using it about a week, and I replaced the V8 coil i believe? somewhat new to the vape life, but it keeps me from smoking so im sticking with it. anyways i put a new one in because the old one started to taste burnt, and the replacement coil is absolutely destroying my throat. I tried Madrina, Bubble Bubble, and Its so Fluffy and they all absolutely wrecked my throat so it’s turning me off from this tank. Never had an issue like this with my old Lotus tank

  • Josh

    The only problem ive had is the fact that you literally have to get some pliers to take it apart every now and then when you have to tighten it to prevent leaks. Other than that this is the best tank ive ever had and i wouldnt trade it for any other tank on the market. Great buy ☺

  • John Rinaldis

    I have just picked up this setup on thursday of last week. had some dual fused claptons put in .. and bam .. what a tank … i really enjoy the flavour and the tank doesn’t get hot enough to crack … and i am a chain vapor .. yea i rip through juice at 110 watts with my fuchai 213 but it hums just right .. i found when i first wicked it if it wasn’t tucked in the rda area enough .. it did leak but then rewicked it properly and boom not a leak at all .. don’t even have to close the air flow when filling and i get a nice hit every time.

  • Anna

    NEVER EVER BUY SMOK PRODUCTS! PLEASE PASS THIS ALONG AND SHARE IT SO WE CAN EXPOSE COMPANIES THAT ARE SCAMS. I bought a Smok product about a year and a half ago ago and It broke within the month, So seeing as it still had a 3 month warranty I called their rude customer service line and they said If i sent it back along with $5 I could get the next updated version of the XCube II. I sent it back with $5 to be replaced, and as time went on I never got anything bak! So I called their awful customer service again and they said it was already delivered to me! BUT I NEVER RECIEVED ANYTHING! I didn’t sign for anything and nothing came in the mail, ever! So after calling about 7 times and arguing with them they said that they will contact their supplier and put me on a list to get, again, the newest version of the product……THIS WAS OVER A YEAR AGO! WHEN WILL I GET WHAT I PAID FOR! This is a very unprofessional and dishonest company! DO NOT BUY FROM THEM! YOUR PRODUCT WILL BREAK UPON PURCHASE AND THEY WONT BAT AND EYE OR LIFT A FINGER TO HELP!…

    I liked the tank when i!first got it and it was my all vape. For the last month I have been going through a coil almost every two days. Smok has changed something with their coils and they are crap.

    just go my tank, put some liquid into the preinstalled v8 coils. closed the tank. leeking throught the airflow. did I do something wrong or is this a crap tank? sad to see this after all the good reviews where nobody mentions that! are those reviewers so bad just trying to sell tanks?

      I got one last week Ive had no problems yet. i love it

    quality control in the coils is not good. the second coil i used was good. t6. then i used the delivered rta(which is really cool) and trouble started again with leeking.

    They say there are no dumb questions, but I may be about to put that to the test. On tanks like the tfv8 and Baby, the juice holes on the coils come about half way up the tank. Will they burn the wicks if the juice level is allowed to get below the top of these ports? If so, then the capacity isn’t nearly as advertised, and the Baby would almost be an RDA. If not, glad I asked. Thanks as always.
