SMOK TFV4 Coils Overview and Review

SMOK TFV4 Coil Intro

We recently reviewed the SMOK TFV4 with its quad, triple coils and RBA sections. SMOK is now releasing a whole heap of new coils, so we thought it would be a good idea to try them all to give you the low down on them. I have no idea which vendors will be able to stock all of these, as there are just so many. We try them all below, to see which ones are worth trying and for vendors to work out which are worth stocking!

All the TFV4 coils are very expensive, compared to other vape atomizers, due to their size and multiple coils, so keep this in mind when making a purchase.

We can’t comment on the longevity of the coils, as unfortunately we just don’t have the time to vape each one until they are done. If you have used any for longer periods of time, please let us know below!

Please share your own experiences below as other opinions are always helpful and much appreciated. The comments below are based on the opinions of my brother and me.

Thanks to SMOK for sending these new coils over as well as the sexy new black X-Cube II and TFV4!

Notable Remarks

I won’t talk about the triple coils and RBA heads, as we spoke about those in the SMOK TFV4 review. I will, however, mention the quad coil again as it is really that good!

I couldn’t get the Titanium coil working as the app wanted me to purchase it as an addon and I was too stubborn to pay for it (I’ll get it later and add it on). “PAY FOR MORE FUN” they said on their site.

Not sure what SMOK are playing at here making us pay to use a feature that comes with the box mod?! Come on SMOK that’s just silly! (this wasn’t the case when I did the original review on the X-cube II, so I will have to update that). Can others confirm that they are being charged to use Temp control mode for Titanium and Stainless Steel?

SMOK TFV4 TF-T2, TF-T2 Air and TF-Ti Coils
SMOK TFV4 TF-T2, TF-T2 Air and TF-Ti Coils

Sweet Spot: 40W
Thoughts: Very little flavor on the TF-T2 coil compared to some of the others and didn’t really get going until 30-35W.

TF-T2 Air (20-45W) 1.5ohm

The air version is the same as above just with more air flow in the coil itself.

Sweet Spot: 40W
Thoughts: The air version produced more vapor than the standard TF-T2. It also produced much more flavor than the standard, so if you had to choose between the two go for the TF-T2 Air. However, compared to the quad coil for instance the TF-T2s come across quite muted in terms of flavor.

TF-N2 Standard Ni200 (0.12ohm – 420-600 Fahrenheit)

Again this is a coil that comes in two different versions, a standard and an Air version with more air flow.

Sweet Spot: 260 Celcius and 500 Fahrenheit
Thoughts: Again, I am finding the flavor slightly muted compared to that imperious quad coil. Both the Ni200 N2 coils made the TFV4 tank extremely hot whilst heavy vaping, so much so I could barely touch the tank. The flavor gets slightly better on these coils after letting them saturate for ages and then after a half a tank of vaping, unlike the quad where the flavor hit you straight away.

TF-N2 Air Ni200 (0.12ohm – 420-600 Fahrenheit)

The Air is the same as the above N2 temp coil, but with air flow holes inside the coil.

Sweet Spot: 260 Celcius and 500 Fahrenheit
Thoughts: We didn’t see much difference between this Air Ni200 coil and the standard Ni200 above. They were both pretty subdued in flavor and both got the tank very hot. The N2 coils were not for us.

TF-S6 Sextuple (30-100W) 0.4ohm

SMOK TFV4 TF-T3, TF-Q4 and TF-S6 Coils
SMOK TFV4 TF-T3, TF-Q4 and TF-S6 Coils

Just when you thought the quad coil was crazy, SMOK come out with a sextuple coil! The sextuple is basically made the same way the triple coil is, but is a parallel wrapped version of it. What next?!

Sweet Spot: 80-90W
Thoughts: The Sextuple coil was a lot better than any of the other coils above in terms of flavor. It vaped well up to 100W and had no issues with wicking or dry hits at 100W. The tank did get quite hot again, at the higher wattages when chain vaping. The clouds are as you can expect massive (see vid below). This means your juice will disappear faster than you could drink it!

However, for some reason we thought the flavor on the quad coil was a lot better than either the triple coil or sextuple coil, or any of the other coils to be perfectly honest.

TF-Q4 Quadruple Coil (40-140W) 0.15ohm

Sweet Spot: Anywhere between 80-100W depending how hot you like your vape
Thoughts: The quad coil in my opinion (you might have different opinions on this) blows the other TFV4 coils out of the window. I think it must be because this one is the only parallel wrapped one, whereas the others are all triple coils next to each other type thing (you’ll get what I mean, when looking at the coils from the top).

The quad does eat juice, but not as much as that sextuple monster coil. My recommendation if you want flavor would be to go with the TF-Q4 quad coils.


Let’s just start by remembering that these coils are very expensive because of how big they are and because of the amount of coils involved ($25-30 for 5 coil heads, RBAs less expensive).

In my opinion the SMOK TFV4 coils are a bit of an overkill, but something that people could enjoy every now and then (a one off type thing). These are definitely not all day vapes. Perhaps the RBA section can be, but the pre-made coils are too expensive to be vaping on a daily basis and get through too much e-juice.

In terms of flavor there was only one winner and that was the TFV4 quadcoil (TF-Q4). I can see people ordering the sextuple coil to see what it’s like, but honestly I think the quad was better and will get through less e-juice. It will however, still get through tonnes of e-juice. If you are looking for less e-juice consumption and want to use less wattage, either make your own heads on the RBA or try the TF-T2 Air, which was better than the standard TF-T2 which had less air flow. This coil doesn’t eat up as much battery and juice as the others and is a good inclusion in the TFV4 coil set.

I’d love to hear if anyone else has been using the new TFV4 coils and what they think about them, because as always the above it just our opinion, so it is always good to hear from others!

I hope this TFV4 coil overview/review was helpful.

I have not tried it but it looks like the sextuple coil is 3 parallel coils not 6 coils stacked .

Hey, just FYI there’s also a verical coil RBA and a SS coil coming out!


I’ve been using the Quad/Triple coils as well as the Single/Dual RBAs for a few weeks now. The Quad is the best but I would only recommend it if you DIY or have extensive disposable income. I’ve gone through a 5ml tank in an hour. The triple coil is just as thirsty but not as good for flavour. The RBA heads however are excellent for flavour and are much more frugal depending on how you build it. I tend to build around 0.6ohms and it’ll take me a day to get through a full tank if I’m using it frequently.… Read more »


As an addition, the quad coils will also drain your batteries in no time at all. Dual Parallel box here drained 2×18650 in two hours max. It’ll be faster if you’re in series.


I decided to go and buy a Smok TFV4 Full Kit for myself. I was initially delighted with it. However, I first used it with the already installed T3 coil, which was great, but then I decided to try the Q4 coil, but it would not screw right down into the base, so all I got was ‘check atomizer’ when I attached the tank to my Sigelei 150 TC Mod, so I was disappointed, but I just assumed that the provided Q4 coil must somehow be faulty. So next I thought I would try the T&F-R1 coil, also provided in… Read more »


My Q4 coil also would not screw in. I had to go to my local B&M and buy a replacement Q4, which screwed in fine.


I have been using the tf4v with the cube x 2 for 4mth now and I use the quad coil as an all day vape. I go thro 2 tanks of juice a day but coil last me about 2 weeks befor I need to replace. I enjoy the flavor bang.
