Smok TFV8 Baby Beast: Vape Tank Overview

smok-tfv8-baby-beast-tank-uk

Having recently pushed the boundaries to Rolls-Royce proportions with their TFV8 Cloud Beast, Smok have miniaturised their supercharged V8 Tank with the TFV8 Baby Beast; a smaller and compacted version that still retains the capabilities of ludicrous cloud production, as well as great flavours of course.

While the full size TFV8 has an eJuice capacity of 6ml, The Baby Beast has only half the volume, and can hold only a maximum of 3ml of eLiquid. It’s also a third smaller than its bigger brother, and instead features Smok’s smaller ‘V8 Baby’ coils. The tank comes as standard with a V8-Baby-Q2 0.45ohm (Ω) Dual Core pre-installed, along with a V8-Baby-Q2 0.45ohm (Ω) Dual Core (eight mini coils) in the box.

smok-tfv8-baby-beast-tank-uk

There’s also optional V8 Baby-X4 Quad Core coils, as well as a Rebuildable RBA deck that are available seperately, and Smok do have plans to release a range of coils for their Baby Beast in the near future. Also included in the box is a spare replacement glass tube for those with butter fingers, and familiar spare parts and bits and pieces, such as vape bands.

Like other tanks in the Taste Furious family, the Baby Beast has a top filling system with an upgraded leak-resistant slot at the top to solve potential leaking issues. Smok have also given the TFV8 Baby a wide bore Delrin drip tip for heat resistance, and large airflow slots, as well as increasing the size of the central chimney allowing for a much cooler and airier vape.

Similar to the TFV8, Smok’s Baby Beast is designed for the flavour and cloud chasers in mind, looking to push their vape experience to the limit. Some vapers may be put off by the 3ml volume, and look to the larger TFV8 for better eLiquid capacity, especially as the both V8’s are confirmed eJuice guzzlers.

They do race through juice like there’s no tomorrow, so those who don’t like to refill often may be put off by the high level of drain. However, it’s compact design allows it to be a mini-powerhouse for the cloud chasers, while still retaining the high performance abilities of its 6ml counterpart, but in a pocket-friendly size.

Disappointingly the RBA section is not included with the Baby Beast like it was with the full size TFV8, but is available as an additional option for those wanting to install prebuilt coils in their tank. It’s an impressive piece of kit, and ideal for those looking for the next stage in clouds and flavours, but users will find that their eJuice will likely disappear a lot faster than with previous Smok tanks.

Guide to Temperature Control Vaping

temperature-control-intro-banner

What Is Temperature Control Vaping?

Nobody likes a dry hit. It’s unpleasant, tastes foul, and having to change a coil at an inopportune moment can leave us in a bit of a tizz. Temperature Control aims to combat this by monitoring and limiting the temperature of the coil, and not allowing it to exceed a certain temperature, ensuring dry hits and burnt wicks are a thing of the past. Here’s our brief guide on Temperature Control vaping.

How Does Temperature Control Work?

Temperature Control mode (TC) is becoming more of a standard feature, but isn’t available on every device. If you’re looking to purchase a device to use TC mode, it’s worth checking that the device has this function before buying.

Temperature Control works by allowing the user to pre-set a value in either Fahrenheit or Celsius, with the device limiting and cutting off the power if the temperature exceeds this value.

TC mode allows the coil to remain at a fixed and consistent rate, whether you’re chain vaping volcanic-sized clouds, or doing the more easy going mouth-to-lung method.

If putting in a brand new coil, it must be installed at room temperature, otherwise it will not work, and the mod’s calculations will be incorrect. Also if you’re building your own Temperature Control coils, we do not recommend pulsing them. If you do accidentally pulse them, allow the coils to return to room temperature before using to vape on.

To set up TC for the first time you will need to first ensure sure that your device is TC compatible. Variable Wattage and Variable Voltage (VW/VV) devices will simply not work with Temperature Control coils, and you’ll need to ensure that both your device and coil are TC capable with Variable Temperature (VT).

After this you’ll need to consider the wire type you’re using in your TC coil, usually Nickel (Ni) or Titanium (Ti), or Stainless Steel (SS), and set your mod to the correct type of TC mode, which will be wither Ni, Ti, or SS, depending on the coil.

Once installed, you’re then free to adjust the wattage to your preference, but it’s recommended to use the manufacturer’s recommended wattage for the coil. The idea is that the device will power to your desired wattage, but not over the limits of the TC setting.

temperature-control-screen

Properties Of Nickel, Titanium, & Stainless Steel Wires

The two most common wire types for Temperature Control are Nickel (Ni) and Titanium (Ti). There are other wire types available, including Stainless Steel (SS) but Ni and Ti are the most prevalent on the current market.

Nickel is used in many pre-made coils such as Ni200’s, and are most often rated at 0.15Ω. It has a very high temperature co-efficient, meaning that its resistance doesn’t fluctuate very much when heated, and remains quite stable at high temperatures.

Titanium is relatively new for the vaping market, but is becoming used more and more for TC as it’s much stronger in its construction than Nickel, and has almost double the resistance. This means that less wraps can be used in a wind to achieve the same resistance as with Nickel.

Constructed from a mix of Carbon, Nickel, and Chromium, Stainless Steel (SS) wire has some decent functional properties that allow it to be used with both Variable Wattage as well as Variable Temperature modes. The most common SS wire is 316L; a medical grade metal that’s grown steadily in popularity among vapers for use in TC devices.

While most of the more recent mods on the market have a dedicated setting for SS, some of the older mods don’t have this function, so it’s a good idea to double check before making a purchase.

Compared to Titanium and Nickel, Stainless Steel wire is cheaper, stronger, and is deemed to be a bit easier to work with in terms of building, as it lacks the springy quality that other wire types possess.

Benefits & Drawbacks Of TC Vaping

A major benefit of vaping in Temperature Control modes is dry hits are no longer an issue, due to the more accurate regulation of the TC coils. This also means the atomisers themselves tend to last a bit longer as well.

If the wick becomes dry, the temperature will increase, and the TC mode will immediately protect the coil by cutting off the power. Rewicking Nickel can be a little tricky, as it’s more fragile that Kanthal, and heavy-handedness can cause it to lose its structural integrity, so it’s recommended to be extra careful if rebuilding coils made of Nickel.

Temperature Control can take a little bit of time to get used to, but is relatively easy to pick up and understand after spending a little time on it. We recommend learning which temperature and wattage is the best for maximum output.

Aspire Atlantis Evo Vape Tank: Overview

aspire-atlantis-evo-tank-banner-uk

The Atlantis Evo is the new and updated version of Aspire’s Atlantis tank series, having been given a design overhaul, along with a more stylish look. The Evo has a small 2ml capacity of juice to be TPD compliant, although an optional 4ml extension is available. The tank includes a 0.4ohm (Ω) pre-installed Clapton coil, an extra 0.5Ω Clapton coil, replacement Pyrex glass (4ml) with an adapter, and a rubber cuff.aspire-atlantis-evo-tank-uk-l

The Evo is the improved version of its predecessor, the excellent Atlantis V2 tank, however Aspire have also looked to their recent Cleito tank for influence. The 2ml Evo is smaller than the Cleito, but with the optional 4ml Pyrex glass extention, it’s similar in size. The Evo also has a top fill, giving the option to drip or pour your liquid in.

The Evo also now has four spacious airflow holes, allowing for some smooth vaping, although one potential downside is that all airflows will have to be equally open or closed, which may limit fine tuning the airflow.

Aspire have improved the coils by increasing the cotton exposure holes, allowing high VG juice to travel easier to the coil system and having lower wick points.

In addition, Aspire has made the Evo coils with using the Clapton wind so that vapers get the best flavour out of their Evo. Thankfully Aspire have also allowed for backwards compatibility of previous coils for the Aspire Triton and Atlantis tanks, giving a wide variety of available choices to use with the Evo.

The Evo has a unique ‘top hat’ look with its wide drip tip, constructed of heat-resistant Delrin. There’s also an option for the user to replace it with an alternative 510 drip tip for tank personalisation. However, the drip tip on the Evo doesn’t contain a secondary airflow that the Atlantis V2 introduced previously.

Unfortunately for Temperature Control users, the Evo does not come with TC coil as standard, although coils from the Atlantis V2 and Triton tanks can be used.

The Evo offers a range of customisable options, with its two different tank sizes, as well as a range of available coils. Users of the Atlantis V2 and Triton tanks may look to this as a solid upgrade, as it still allows for backwards compatibility with coils from both previous tanks. Cloud chasers will enjoy the Evo’s wide airflow system, although this cannot be personalised as much as some my like, as the airflow has to be equally opened or closed on all sides. Nevertheless, Aspire have put out a solid successor to their Atlantis range, taking inspiration and influence from the excellent Cleito, but remaining a firm successor to the Atlantis and Atlantis V2 tanks.

Smok TFV8 Tank: A Vape Overview

smok-tfv8-tank-uk-banner


smok-tfv8-tank-ukWith a clear reputation for innovation, Smok are always looking for ways to bring us the next best thing, having brought out a flurry of excellent devices, such as the Stick One Basic and Plus Kit, as well as the H-Priv 220W. Back in 2015 they released the TFV4 Tank to great reviews, with the TFV4 Mini and Micro quickly following behind. Smok have clearly decided to take things to the next level with their “Cloud Beast”, the turbo-charged TFV8 tank.

The TFV8 is designed predominantly for the cloud chasers and flavour chasers, having even larger coils than its predecessor. The Cloud Beast is able to hold a maximum of 6ml of eLiquid, and comes as standard with a V8-T8 0.15ohm (Ω) Octuple atomiser (eight coils), as well as the V8-Q4 Quadtuple coil (four coils).

There’s also a Rebuildable (RBA) section included, and this comes with a prebuilt 0.28Ω V8 Turbo RBA Head, as well as familiar accessories such as vape bands, replacement glass tube, and other spares.

Like others in the TFV4 family, the TFV8 has a top filling system, but this has been revamped with an increase in the size of both the refill slot, making it more convenient to refill, as well as with the central airflow chamber.

Additional improvements Smok have made over the original TFV4 include a newly designed airflow that has two enlarged airflow slots, as well as the increased size of the central chimney. This allows for a much cooler and airier vape, with a more efficient flow of air.

smok-tfv8-tank-contents-uk

The drip tip is now constructed of heat-resistant Delrin, although it does not feature the additional adjustable airflow that the TFV4 had. Also the RBA section features a velocity-style deck, allowing for a more convenient installation of coils, with some prebuilt 0.28Ω Clapton coils already installed.

With an increase in just about all areas, the TFV8 allows for extreme high wattages with their innovative Turbo coils, with an easy 180W reachable with the coils that come with the box.

On the downside, due to the construction of the extreme low-resistance coils, the TFV8 is a bonafide gas-guzzler and will race through juice like it’s Le Mans in 24 minutes.

The very low resistance of these coils also means the TFV8 will require a considerable amount of power to use optimally, which will be a big drain on battery power.

Bear in mind that this tank is the vaping equivalent of the Saturn 5 rocket, and needs a huge amount of power to get going. Therefore Smok’s TFV8 Cloud Beast would be most suitable for vapers looking to push their vaping experience to the flavour and cloud limit, and for those not particularly concerned about conserving eLiquid.

We don’t recommend this tank for those looking for an easy going mouth-to-lung vaping experience, as the TFV8 is really designed for the complete opposite.

Aspire Nautilus X: Vape Tank Overview

aspire-nautlius-x-tank-blog

The original Aspire Nautilus tank took vape culture by storm, being a solid and dependable mouth-to-lung tank for both new and burgeoning vapers, as well as seasoned veterans. The Aspire Nautilus X tank is the next stage in the Nautilus’ journey, with its transformation influenced very much by Aspire’s recent Cleito design. The Nautilus X has been specifically designed to produce a high quality vaping experience and excellent flavour, all in a high resistance, mouth-to-lung style.


Measuring 45mm in height and 22mm in width, Aspire has given the Nautilus X a capacity of 2.0ml, similar to the Nautilus Mini. While the full-size Nautilus managed a large 5ml capacity, Aspire have clearly decided to make the Nautilus X as compliant as they can with the TPD, with a 2ml max capacity.

aspire-nautilus-x-tank-box-uk

Aspire have revamped the coil construction for the Nautilus X by creating the new U-Tech coil technology, adding a U shaped chamber in the coil which makes the vapour flow through the airflow system twice before being inhaled, increasing the flavour production like never before.

The tank has been redesigned to be leak resistant, along with an additional top-airflow that can be adjusted, and additionally, they have added a top filling system which can be used by simply screwing the top off. This allows refilling of the Nautilus X to be both quick and clean, and done in a matter of a few seconds.

One interesting feature with the Aspire Nautilus X tank is its ability to replace the standard Pyrex glass with a larger size. The standard kit comes with the 2.0ml capacity Pyrex glass, although the tank can be expanded in size by using the Pyrex glass included with the Aspire Cleito tank, allowing the Nautilus X to be transformed from standard 2.0ml  into a double-capacity 4.0ml tank, but this does require a 4.0ml adapter chimney.

Included with the Nautilus X is a spare glass tube (2ml), incase of any accidental drops or knocks. There’s also preinstalled 1.8ohm coil, along with a replacement 1.5ohm coil in the box.. Due to the high resistance of the coils, the Nautilus X is ideally used between 10-18 watts.

As a very compact tank, the Nautilus X will easily fit flush onto most of the smaller mods, although the capacity is rather small for vapers looking for a setup to last all day. Designed predominantly for those looking for excellent flavours rather than big clouds, the Aspire Nautilus X tank is best used with a mouth-to-lung style.

An excellent starter tank for beginners looking to come into vaping a little higher than with the very entry level CE5 clearomizers, it’s also a great upgrade from the basic aforementioned tanks, but the Nautilus X would also be a solid addition to a seasoned vaper looking for a reliably excellent easy-going high resistance device.

Eleaf iPower 80W: A Vape Overview

eleaf-ipower-banner

eleaf-ipower-mod-woodThe successor to the iStick 50w; Eleaf’s iPower boasts a huge 5000-mAh built-in battery, along with a maximum output of 80W, and range of modes that include Temperature Control (TC), Variable Wattage (VW), Temperature Coefficient of Resistance (TCR), Bypass, and the brand new Smart Mode.

Eleaf took the iStick 50w and redesigned it from the ground up, giving it a sleek and classy finish, and in a range of different colours.

The iPower’s wattage output ranges from 1w up to 80w, with the resistance range of between 0.1 – 3.5ohm in VW, and 0.05 – 1.5ohm in TC mode. The temperature range in TC mode (Stainless Steel, Ni200, Titanium and TCR (M1, M2 & M3) ranges between 100 – 315C, or 200 – 615F, depending on your measurement preference.

Improvements Eleaf have made include the obvious massive increase in battery capacity; the 5000mAh built in battery giving easily enough power for days, while still remaining light, and not affecting the weight of the device. It remains exceptionally lightweight.

Eleaf have also additional reset button, along with the standard click buttons for plus and minus variables. The reset button can be used by holding the ‘up’ button and the reset button together, and this is just a precaution incase the device does not power on after an upgrade.

eleaf-ipower-mod-screen

Eleaf has also included TCR mode (Temperature Coefficient of Resistance) which allows for a much more accurate reading of the heat and resistance,  and also Bypass mode giving the option to use it as a ‘mechanical mod’. We advise caution to be taken with Bypass mode, as this will have an immense drain the battery.

Smart mode is a huge improvement to the Eleaf software, allowing you to save a specific wattage with a specific tank with its resistance set, so that whenever you add that particular tank with that same resistance, the mod will load up the pre-set saved earlier.

When switching your tank for another, it will still save when reusing the previous tank.

One of the only drawbacks to the iPower is the location of its charging port, situated at the bottom for the device. While this adds a slight inconvenience for charging it, the mod itself is comfortable and perfectly sized, and the finish is sleek and looks classy making any tank look great on it.

Eleaf’s iPower 80w would be suitable for the intermediate vapers that are looking for a mod to suit all tanks, as the addition of Smart mode allows for easy swapping of flavours, having wattages saved already for particular tanks and coils. This mod will also be suitable for those looking for a mod that doesn’t need to be charged daily and those looking for a TC mode.

Wismec Reuleaux RX200S: An Overview

wismec-jaybo-rx200s-mod-uk

wismec-reuleaux-rx200s-mod-ukFeaturing the instantly recognizable Jaybo design, Wismec’s Reuleaux RX200S features the same dimensions and excellent production quality as its predecessor; the RX200, but features some additional output modes, along with a larger screen, as well as now being dressed in the suit of its older brother, the DNA 200.

Retaining the triple 18650 battery slot, the RX200S is still just as monstrous with its a 200W output as the rest of the Wismec family, but the device now includes TCR (Temperature Coefficient of Resistance) mode which allows for a much more accurate reading of heat and resistance.

Offering a maximum of 200 watts of output (250W with a firmwire upgrade) in standard wattage mode, the RX200S can be used in Temperature Control mode with a wide range of wire types including Nickel, NiChrome, Stainless Steel, and Titanium. The large OLED screen has been increased in size from other Wismec models, measuring in at 0.96 of an inch.

Although it’s clearly a big and hefty mod, Wismec and JayBo have designed it in such a way that makes it very comfortable and ergonomic to hold in the hand, and very easy to use.

wismec-reuleaux-rx200s-battery-view-uk-l

Using the RX200S in standard wattage mode allows for a resistance range of between 0.1 – 3.5ohms (Ω), allowing for both heavy subohm and easygoing mouth-to-lung vaping of your favourite eLiquid. Coils as low as 0.05Ω can be fired in Temperature Control (TC) mode with relative ease, and this mode features a maximum output temperature of 315°C; 15 degrees more than its predecessor.

You may have noticed Wismec’s DNA200 mod on the market, which does appear very similar to the RX series, but has almost double the price tag. The reason for this is mainly due to the DNA200’s formidable chipset, which took the vape world by storm, and raised the bar in terms of boxmod performance.

The RX200S is no less spectacular than the DNA200, and is the same in almost every way. It does lack the ‘Escribe’ software that comes with the DNA200, and also features a simplified menu, but this makes using the device even easier, meaning the RX200S is just as reliable as its older brother.

How To Install And Use Premade Coils On Your RDA

how-to-install-and-use-premade-rda-rdta-coils-uk

Building coils can be a slightly intimidating and daunting task, but they shouldn’t be considered completely out of the realm of possibility. They’re a great way to vape your eLiquid, although requiring a slightly different method to use properly.

If you’re interested in rebuilding, we’d recommend getting yourself some pre-built coils to use in your RDA. From regular and simplified wound coils, to the more advanced claptons and hive coils, we stock a wide range to suit every vapers need.

All you’ll need to do is select your RDA or RDTA, and use the following steps to install your pre-built coils onto the deck.

  1. Clean your RDA of eliquid, removing the cotton old coils and cotton
  2. Select and prepare your new coils
  3. Insert the new coils into the posts, and gently tighten screws to secure
  4. Centre the coil with a screwdriver, and use wire cutters to trim legs
  5. Use an ohm reader to check your resistance and make sure there are no shorting problems
  6. While firing the coils use ceramic tweezers to gently squeeze them to ensure the coils heat up evenly
  7. Cut a strip of wicking material a similar size to the coil – twist into shape
  8. Insert the cotton through each coil, trim any excess evenly, tucking the cotton into the well.
  9. Add juice until your cotton is nice and saturated
  10. VAPE!!

KangerTech DripBox 160W Kit: An Overview

kanger-dripbox-160-kit

Bridging the gap between full-on RDA territory and beginner friendliness, Kanger’s latest hybrid device is both dripper, squonk, and semi-tank. The Dripbox 160W Kit is an upgraded version of the 60W Dripbox, offering 100 more watts of output.

kangertech-dripbox-160-subdrip-deck-l

Powered by dual 18650’s, the DripBox is an excellent regulated device designed for vapers who are interested in dripping, but are not looking to be thrown right in at the deep end.

Similar to the DripBox 60W, this latest iteration reads coils as low as 0.2ohm (Ω), and also includes the squonk feeding tube to allow for easy rewicking of the cotton; instead of manually dripping onto your coils, there’s a squeezy 7ml bottle fitted into the mod that allows an easy ‘redripping’ of your atomiser.

Now included with the Dripbox 160W is a “velocity-style deck” with double holes on each post, making it easier to install your premade coils, and the Dripbox’s SubDrip deck is designed to offer a choice between either direct lung or mouth to lung, as the airflow can be easily adjusted to accommodate for both methods of vaping.

The previous Dripbox had a constant maximum output of 60w without offering any variable adjustments, but with the 160W, Kanger have included both adjustable wattage, ranging from 7W to 160W, and also temperature control (TC) settings, with options of Nickel, Nichrome, Titanium and Stainless steel (200F – 600F or 100C – 230C). One of the biggest changes is the inclusion of an OLED screen, which the previous DripBox lacked.

kangertech-dripbox-160-battery-view-l

One of the downsides to the Dripbox 160W is that due to its dual 18650 battery requirements, it can be a little heavy to hand, especially for people that aren’t used to carrying around bigger and weightier devices, but overall Kanger’s Dripbox 160w is bigger and better than its predecessor, and its altered size and shape offer an improved ergonomic feeling in the hand, rather than being a detriment.

It’s inclusion of a variable wattage mode and TC options, along with its squonky mechanism make it a very easy-to-use dripping device that’s perfect for beginners, and also as a great improvement over the Dripbox 60w, if you’re thinking of upgrading

The 160W kit comes with the Subdrip deck, the Dripbox 160W, a spare squeezy bottle, an added anti spit back system, a spare deck, and some Clapton premade coils reading at 0.3ohm.

For those that are used to their usual sub-ohm tanks and do not know how to install premade coils, it is possible to purchase replaceable prebuilt coil decks that have cotton installed, similar to its predecessor, meaning you can attain the dripping experience, with none of the fiddliness of installing coils and cotton.kangertech-dripbox-160-exploded-view-l

SmokTech H-Priv 220W Kit: An Overview

smok-hpriv-banner-uk

smok-hpriv-tank-mod-ukThe Smok H-Priv 220W TC kit is the latest dual-18650 powered device from Smok, the successor to the beasty X Cube II. The kit includes Smok’s new H-Priv 220w TC mod along with the TFV4 Micro tank; part of Smok’s Taste Furious range. If you’re not looking for a complete kit, the H-Priv mod is also sold separately, without the tank and spare coils.

The stainless steel constructed TFV4 Micro tank holds a capacity of 2.5ml, and has the same top filling system that the Taste Furious range is known for. The kit includes a pre installed micro fused Clapton core, which reads at 0.3Ω, and an additional micro stainless steel dual core, which reads at 0.25Ω.

The H-Priv’s wattage output ranges from 6W up to 220W, with the resistance range between 0.1 – 3.0 ohm (Ω) in wattage mode, and 0.06Ω – 3.0Ω in Temperature Control mode. The temperature range in TC mode (Ni200, Stainless Steel & Titanium) is between 200F – 600F, or 100C – 315C, depending on your preference.

Smok have included a few improvements and upgrades over the H-Priv’s predecessor. They’ve improved the battery installation system with a bottom slide door, instead of having it on the side like the X Cube II. Also instead of coiled springs to hold the batteries in place and complete the electrical connection, the H-Priv now features 24k gold plated positive and negative terminals on the door, meaning the wrapping and the outside of the batteries won’t degrade with use.

The H-Priv is smaller and sleeker, and with a max output of 220 watts, it’s more powerful than the X Cube II. It also features an improved ergonomic firing mechanism, and additionally Stainless Steel (SS) has been added to the Temperature Control mode.

There’s also a slight difference in the design of the TFV4 Micro tank, as it now includes a cone-shaped drip tip, along with a ‘V’ shaped airflow channel that alters the vape experience.

smok-hpriv-220w-mod-uk3

Like the others in SmokTech’s Taste Furious family, the TFV4 Micro has a top refill system making it easier to refill with your favourite eLiquid. The H-Priv is also 40 grams lighter than its predecessor, weighing in at just 190g.

To keep your batteries in top condition Smok have also redesigned the battery slot, and it instead uses contact points instead of a spring to hold the batteries in place. There’s also a spare pyrex glass sleeve should your TFV4 come into contact with the floor at high speed.

Unfortunately a downside is that Smok have still not allowed for pass-through charging, and the USB cable supplied can only be used for firmware upgrades.

Smok have also removed the Bluetooth function that came with the X Cube series, which allowed the device to be paired and controlled via a phone app.

The H-Priv kit would be suitable for vapers looking for a solid and long-lasting device, as its dual-18650 batteries can offer a huge amount of battery capacity. Due to its size, the H-Priv is better suited to home use, or while on a long journey when a large amount of battery is required.

Although it’s smaller and lighter than the X Cube II, the H-Priv is probably not ideal for slipping in one’s back pocket on a night out, as its bulkiness can mean it’s difficult to carry around.
