iJoy MAXO V12 Preview | TFV12 Killer or Copycat?

Today we have a look at the iJoy MAXO V12, another tank that fits twelve coils into one. How will it compare to the SMOK TFV12?


iJoy MAXO V12 Intro

When I heard about the new iJoy MAXO V12, I encountered a bit of deja vu. Didn’t I just do a preview on this last week? Oh wait, that was another twelve-coil-having tank called the TFV12. See what I did there? In any event, iJoy is known to be very competitive, and this only proves it.

The SMOK TF-series has been a staple in the vape community since the original TFV4. The iJoy MAXO V12 takes a stab directly at the latest version of this tank, which features duodenary, aka twelve, coils in one. Which tank do you think will be worthy of the crown? Let us know!

The iJoy MAXO V12 is strikingly similar to the TFV12 by SMOK, also known as the Cloud Beast King. I can’t help but look at this tank and compare the two. They’re both suitable for vaping at high wattages, similar in price and features which will make this decision even more difficult.

The MAXO V12 has a spring-loaded 510, something that the TFV12 does not talk about. I don’t know for sure if the Cloud Beast King has one either, but they probably would have mentioned it on the site. Other than that, they also both come in silver, black, “glod” and rainbow.

I’m not sure if “glod” was a typo, or if it is some type of gold that is only indigenous to China. Either way, the tank looks pretty dope, even if it is just a TFV12 with an X slapped on it.

iJoy MAXO V12 vs. SMOK TFV12

Here are some notable differences between the two tanks:

  • The MAXO V12 has a spring-loaded 510, the TFV12 doesn’t.
  • The Maxo V12 has a 28mm diameter whereas the TFV12’s is 27mm.
  • The TFV12 holds 6 mL of juice and the MAXO V12 holds a little bit less at 5.6mL.
  • The MAXO V12 and the TFV12 both feature a very similar flip-top fill system.
  • The MAXO V12 is currently $3 more than the TFV12.
  • The TFV12 has two RTA options whereas the MAXO V12 uses one triple-post design.
  • Both utilize duodenary coil heads (twelve coils in one)
  • The MAXO V12 is suitable up to 315 watts, whereas the TFV12 can go up to 350.
  • The TFV12 is advertised by SMOK as high-temperature resistant and “explosion-proof”.

A vaper’s dozen


You might be wondering, what’s up with the twelvefold coils? Look, I don’t even know anymore. I love vaping as much as the next guy or gal, but seriously? You can get decent vapor production out of a nice single coil, so why twelve? Look, this ain’t your daddy’s sub ohm tank, it’s extreme!

I once tried a duodenary coil but it was in an RDA, and yea it hit harder than [insert your favorite UFC fighter here]. iJoy likes to take these incredible innovations but replicating them in a way that is suitable for mainstream. What’s next, thirteen coils? We want to hear your predictions….

Who is the iJoy MAXO V12 for?

Ok, so as I stated earlier, the MAXO V12 is for the extreme vapers. If you are just getting into vaping and want to blow some huge clouds right away, I would recommend something a little less insane. But if you are crazy and want to maximize your cloud production, then this it!

If you are thinking about buying the MAXO V12, you are probably also comparing it to the TFV12. They are almost identical, despite a few minor differences. It will be very interesting to see which one becomes the hotter seller. I think iJoy will give SMOK a good run for their money.

Which tank are you leaning towards, the TFV12 or the MAXO V12? Leave us a comment below!

TFV8 was more than enough an excellent tank.But now TFV12 and IMHO copy from IJOY Maxo V12. The coilheads won’t be cheap and try to get the taste out of these when you change liquid. It’s an overkill. I think it’s just a easy way to bring a new product on market quick when you have no new constructiv ideas. Put some more wire cramp it as paralell coils and there you have 500W coils. Good selling points. Better they try to make an tank that doesn’t leak like OBS Engine that is easy to maintain etc etc.


I’ve got the TFV4, TFRTA,TFRDTA and TFV8. I’ve never had a leaky prebuilt. Every one of the RBA decks leaked like a sieve until I learned how to wick each one to MY vaping style.They’re all different from each other, and generally different than the Ultimate WicKing how to videos. If it fills ok but it leaks after you draw, it’s wicking faster than you vape. Turn your mod up or roll a denser wick to show it down. If it leaks off the bat, you prolly over saturated the wick before you capped it. If you start out with more liquid on the coils than there is demand at the tails, the wicking works in reverse…down your arm. Once they’re fluffed after insertion, I tuck mine half dry. As long as the wicking slots are filled by the saturated tail and you have enough in there to keep it from jostling out, I haven’t seen that the excess tail length matters at all. It’s all about letting physics establish a proper vacuum and direction of flow while everything is dry and perfect. Just wait a minute, you won’t die. I’ve got a Crius Plus, too. I love it; it’s my favorite tank to spin on when the Tfv8 needs a new wick, lol. There’s a learning curve to the Smok stuff, but the payoff is enormous…and tastes better.
