Tobeco Super Tank Mini Intro

In this article we review a mini sub ohm tank – the Tobeco Super Tank Mini, the smaller brother of the Tobeco Super Tank.

The Tobeco Super Tank Mini has a 4ml e-juice capacity, despite being quite small, and comes with 0.2ohm and 0.5ohm kanthal coils. The Super Tank Mini also has a handy little top fill function.

Tobeco Super Tank Mini Specs and Features

Kit Content

  • 1 x Super Tank Mini (0.2ohm installed)
  • 1 x 0.5ohm coill

Specifications

  • Price: $29.99
  • Wattage Range: 30-90W
  • Tank Capacity: 4ml
  • Coils Available: 0.2ohm (30-90W)
  • 0.5ohm (30-80W) & 0.15Ohm Ni200
  • Wicking material: 100% Pure Organic Cotton
  • RBA: No RBA

Notable Remarks

30W – Not much vapor at 30W
40W – Ok vapor now and you can already taste some nice flavor, looks promising!
50W – Tonnes of vapor already and yet a nice cool vape with good flavor.
60W – Vapor getting slightly warmer now and massive plumes of vapor with delightful flavor.
70W – flavor is immense at 70W! A warm vape now and huge clouds.
80W –Amazing flavor again, but the vapor and drip tip are starting to get seriously hot. There is now way this will vape at 150W!
90W – The vapor is just too hot for me already and the drip tip gets really hot. I won’t be trying to vape this any higher than 90W.

I’d vape the Tobeco super tank mini on the 0.2ohm coil anywhere between 60W- 75W.

30W – Okay vapor, but not too much on the flavor front
40W – Flavor coming through now and big clouds already
50W – Lovely flavor and nice luke warm clouds
60W – Flavor is amazing and the vape is now getting on the warmer side
70W – This is now verging on warm to hot and the drip tip gets hot on longer inhales as does the vapor
80W – Verging on a burnt hit for me at this wattage, so I won’t be vaping it any higher. The vapor is also very hot.

Again the recommended wattage is way out on this coil. There is no way you can have a good vape at 100W on this 0.5ohm coil head. For me the vape was best around 55-65W. The flavor, as on the 0.2ohm coil, was exceptional. We are really impressed by this little tank.

Top Fill

The top fill is really easy to use on the super tank mini. The top screws off easily, making it really easy to re-fill the tank with e-juice.

Amazing Flavor

The flavor on this little sub ohm tank was pretty immense. It isn’t quite on par with the Crown, but not too far off and very impressive for its size.

Great Aesthetics

We reviewed the black version of the super tank mini and loved the looks on this tank. The tank has a few subtle engravings that add to the sleek looks of this tank. I would definitely recommend getting this tank in the black and combined with a black box mod, it looks sick!

Tiny Size

As mentioned already the Super tank mini is a tiny sub ohm tank and is similar in size to the Kanger Subtank Nano and Sense Herakles Hydra. It does however have more e-juice capacity than the aforementioned tanks, which in my opinion gives it a real edge and makes it the leading mini sub ohm tank. However, the super tank mini is wider than those tanks mentioned above, as it is a 22m diameter tank.

Dislikes

Tricky to Put Back Together after Taking Apart

Re-filling from the top is easy, but switching the coil out and putting the tank back together was quite tricky. Taking the tank apart and switching the coil isn’t the issue, it is trying to get the glass and top back on that is tricky. If you are having issues I would recommend taking the bottom o-ring off the glass and placing that inside the base of the tank before putting the Pyrex glass back in. Also be careful, as the o-rings on either side of the Pyrex are slightly different and you need to make sure you have them the right way around.

As it is a bit tricky I can see the odd Pyrex glass breaking, so it would have been nice to see a spare Pyrex glass with this kit.

No Wattages on the Coils

There were no recommended wattages on the coils or anywhere in the box, as the box didn’t come with any leaflet or manual at all! I had to write to Tobeco to ask about the wattages and even the wattages they gave me were by no means accurate.

No Instructions or Info

There were absolutely no instructions or manual with this kit at all. You have no idea as to what wattages the coils are meant to be vaped at and there are no safety tips at all. Tobeco need to address this as this isn’t good enough.

Once I got a response from Tobeco about the coils, we tested the coils. The recommended wattage for the 0.2ohm is 30-150W! I barely got up to about 90W without burning my mouth out, so I think their recommendation needs to be adjusted slightly. Perhaps I’m a wimp, who knows, but I couldn’t get anywhere near 150W!
On the 0.5ohm coil they recommend up to 100W. Again this was quite a bit off and I could barely handle 80W on this coil. Again this is just my experience, so let me know what you thought in the comments below!

Not a 4ml Tank Capacity

The Tobeco Super Tank Mini advertises a 4ml tank capacity. however it can only fit 2.5-3ml depending on how you refill it. I would recommend attaching the coil to the chimney and then re-filling it like that to get 3ml in. Also get some juice in the coil to help it saturate.

Verdict

I think if you are looking for a sub ohm tank that is a lot smaller in size compared with the others on the market and still has a 22mm diameter, then the Tobeco Mini is the choice for you. It’s top fill, fantastic flavor and clouds made for a fantastic vape. The 4ml tank capacity is also most welcome despite its small size.

There were a few minor things that can be improved on this tank, but nothing that was really a deal breaker for me. Tobeco do however, need to include a manual ASAP and add some accurate wattage recommendations onto the coils!

Overall if you want a mini sub ohm tank with a 22mm diameter and a 4ml tank capacity with fantastic flavor, then this is the tank for you!

​Other mini sub ohm tanks to consider: Sense Herakles Hydra and the Kanger Subtank Nano.

If you guys could try the original Super Tank, that would be great! I want to get the Super Tank Mini, and I can see that there’s little difference between the two. However, I’m not sure if the coils are the same or not. Despite my want for this, the fact that there isn’t any wattage ranges on the coils or anywhere in its box is a HUGE no-no! D:

I believe I read somewhere that the Herakles coils are compatible with this tank. Is this true? I have so many Heraklese ni200 coil heads but I’m looking to get a more compact sub-ohm tank.

Question for super tank mini tobeco, is it just me or when vaping sometimes it feels like the liquid is slightly spitting into mouth or is that just the fact I’m getting intense flavor. FYI switched from kanger protank mini new to subohms
