As the name suggests, the SMOK Micro TFV8 Baby Beast Sub-Ohm Tank is a smaller version of the TVFV8 Cloud Beast. Apart from being a fraction of the size of the Cloud Beast, the Baby Beast offers half of the liquid capacity of its big counterpart and its wattage settings are also limited in comparison. The fact is that SMOK aims to offer a variety of styles and sizes to give customers the chance to find a sub-ohm tank that meets their own needs. For instance, there are four sizes available in the TFV4 line and the TFV8 also offers different models. In this review, we will focus on the TFV8 Baby Beast.
The kit comes with one SMOK TFV8 Baby Tank, one replacement glass tube and one V8 Baby-Q2 coil head, as well as some spare parts and user’s manual. The tank stands out for its superb stainless steel constructions and it can hold up to 3 ml of e-liquid. Another highlight of the design is the high quality glass reinforcements and the practical top-fill that features a hinge lock. The SMOK TFV8 Baby Beast has a dual adjustable airflow control at base and it comes with a unique Baby Turbo engines coil structure. The Black Delrin Ultra-Wide drip tip, the 510 connection and the V8 Baby RBA Tow-Post deck are other features of the Baby Beast.
The 0.2ohm V8 Baby-Q2 Dual Coil offers between 30 and 80W and the best performance can be obtained between 55 and 65W. The 0.15ohm V8 Baby-X4 Quad Coil is rated between 30 and 70W, providing the bets results between 45 and 60W. There is also a 0.15ohm V8 Baby-T8 Octuple Coil, which is rated between 50 and 100W and when you vape between 60 and 80W, you can expect the most satisfying experience. The TFV8 Baby Beast is available in Black and Stainless Steel. Price is one of the most appealing aspects of the device since it is available from $17 USD and it doesn’t go above $40.
The main difference between the Micro TFV8 Baby Beast and the TFV4 Micro Tank from SMOK is their coil heads. In the case of the Baby Beast, SMOK uses a technology called Turbo Engine Coil Structure. Other than that, they are very pretty much the same. In general, the TFV8 line is an upgrade from the TFV4 and the Baby Beast in particular, is a step beyond the Micro TFV4. It should be noted that TF stands for Taste Furious and with these series of products, SMOK aims to offer a powerful vaping experience.
As expected, the Baby Beast provides better performance than the TFV4 Micro, although the improvement is not impressive. It does offer richer flavor and a higher level of vapor production thanks to the Turbo Engine coil heads, but it is just slightly better. This is not something that only happens in this case. Overall, it seems like the sub-ohm clearomizer tank technology has practically reached the top of its progress and new updates don’t seem as impressive as they used to be.
The TFV8 Baby Beast offers solid design and great performance, all packed in a small-sized device that is practical and that delivers good results in terms of vapor production and airflow. However, it doesn’t come without its downsides. For instance, the tank tends to get very hot when you vape at higher wattages. Although it is better than previous models in the TF line, the improvement is not significant. It is not particularly innovative, but it is an appealing solution that will please those who want big clouds and intense flavor.
