SMOK TFV12 Tank Review

The name’s 12 – TFV12 and I’m here to drink ya juice and create a storm cloud – and I’m all out of juice – literally.

cloud beast king review

Yup say hello to the SMOK TFV12 Cloud Beast King and trust me guys n gals this is a cloud chucking behemoth.

It’s the obvious choice if you fancy yourself as a human volcano or have a yearning to become a new Marvel superhero – let’s call him Pea Souper Man.

This monster claims to be the King of the sub ohm tanks – or as I call it the sub Oh My God tank lol.

Now as an aside you might be one of those vapers that think a coil capable of hitting 350 watts is ridiculous.

I hear you – I mean just how far does vaping need to go before someone says STOP!

But hey I think we’re missing the point here.

Vaping – apart from being the best way to quit smoking – is also fun!

And as a believer in freedom – and I mean real libertarian freedom – then I say whatever floats your boat.

I mean just because the SMOK TFV12 coils hit 350 watts don’t mean you have to hit those heights – or rush out and buy a vape mod that can handle it right?

But I’m digressing as usual – let’s see if we can fight our way through the fog and take a look at the ‘controversial’ Smok TFV12 Cloud Beast King.

In the Box

It’s your usual Smok packaging as in a colourful sleeve featuring a volcano spewing lava with a nice photo of the TFV12 front and center.

It’s a big bugger let’s put it that way.

Key Features of the Smok TFV12

OK apart from the 6ml bucket sized e-liquid capacity the key feature here has to be the coil that has split the vaping world.

The TVF12-T12 coil has the revolutionary duodenary head – duodenary btw is the word used to relate to the number 12 – so in this case the 12 refers to the amount of cylinders within the coil if that makes sense.

cloud beast king coil heads

Anyway it’s this monster coil that has caused some vapers to get their panties in a twist.

As I’ve already said if folks want to vape at 350 watts then so what?

If they can and it’s safe then more power to your clouds mate.

Personally it’s not something I can see myself doing – though [and this is the truth] for the purpose of this review I went out and bought a Wismec RX200S to see if the TFV12 Cloud Beast King vapes OK maxing out as I did at 250watts – more on that in a bit.

So apart from blowing enough clouds to blot out the sun on whatever continent you live what else has this beast to offer?

cloud beast king larger fill port

To be honest Smok has stayed true to the rest of the Cloud Beast family – it looks the same [apart from extra chunky knurling] – however the juice fill hole is considerably larger.

I know from experience it was a bit of a pain fitting larger glass drippers into that hole.

Otherwise it is what it is a bigger version of the TFV8 Cloud Beast – bigger in every sense given it’s as big if not bigger than my mini mods lol.

Design and Build Quality

It reminds me of a tractor or an off roader given its chunky knurling.

Now that’s not a bad thing – I like off roaders lol – but first looks makes you realize this is indeed a serious piece of kit.

Like pretty much all Smok products [I did say ‘pretty much’ lol] it’s wonderfully put together with nice machining.

Straight outa the box things are a little stiff but once juiced up the threads move nicely.

The absolutely ginormous airflow ring spins with just enough resistance to keep it in place – but it does keep on turning as there’s no catch to keep it in place. But like I said once you’ve set your preferred setting it pretty much stays in place.

cloud beast king airflow

As you might expect the coils themselves have huge juice fill ports of varying shapes and sizes with the V12-Q4 having funky looking lightning bolts instead of your run of the mill slits.

Not sure if that did anything to the cloud production or taste if I’m honest and personally I thought it looked a bit daft and the kind of logo Pea Souper Man might have on his costume

Everything comes apart easily for cleaning and Smok includes a 510 drip tip adaptor should you wish to use your own.

How Does the SMOK TFV12 Perform?

Now anyone who says vaping doesn’t set off smoke alarms needs to go and talk to my 20 or so neighbours.

I live in a newly built set of flats [apartments if you’re posh] with state of the art fire alarms.

cloud beast king components

Now with both my large windows wide open I took a few pulls on the V12-T12 coil and within seconds my pretty large room was filled with vapor.

Unlike any other clouds I’ve created before this vapor just seemed to hang there!

I waved my arms around like a loon for a bit and if I’m honest it was like boxing candy floss!

Boy is the vapor dense!

Anyway – long story short – I spent the next half an hour tooting away on the three different coils and absolutely loving it – so much so I had a big stupid grin on my face the whole time – vaping on the TFV12 is fun!

Call the Fire Brigade!

However.

I opened the door to visit the bathroom and within 3 seconds the fire alarm in the building was triggered and holy crap is it loud!

Cue disgruntled neighbours in their PJs with little wide eyed kids crying on the landings.

Ooops.

They knew it was me as the readout was flashing my flat number for all to see. I guess opening the door and seeing a huge grey sweet smelling cloud filling the hallways was a bit of a giveaway too lol.

Anyway if that doesn’t show you how the SMOK TFV12 performs then nothing will.

The vapor production is intense – it’s thick – dense and seems to have substance lol.

Flavour wise I’ve not been that impressed with the Baby Beast or the Big Baby Beast if I’m honest – but Smok seems to have cracked it with the coils I tried.

V12-T12 Coil

v12-t12

OK after letting this soak for a good twenty minutes I took it from 100watts to 250watts.

At 100watts it was a cold vape but with a decent flavour. The clouds were impressive to say the least and absolutely smashed the vapor production from the Big Baby Beast.

However once I’d gone through the gears so to speak I hit the 250watts and just Wow!

Never mind clouds for days or weeks we’re talking no sun for months lol.

And at 180 watts the flavour was absolutely stunning.

V12-X4

v12-x4

By far the most sensible [haha] of the coils you get with the kit coming in with a sweet spot of around 120watts.

Once again cloud production was phenomenal and the taste as good as I’ve tasted on a Smok stock coil – yeah even as good as the flavoursome low wattage SMOK Brit tank lol.

I did try to max this one at out 200watts and things got a little warm with the flavour dipping considerably giving me not quite a dry hit but the threat of one.

V12-Q4

v12-q4

This is the coil with the lightning bolt cut-out juice flow holes so I was expecting fireworks from this one.

I took this beauty from 60watts to its max of 190watts in 20 watt increments.

At the lower end clouds were amazing whilst taste was weak.

I didn’t like the vape at 190watts as again it bordered on the threat of a dry hit – not that I got one but I wouldn’t chain vape at that wattage if you catch my drift.

However at 165watts the taste on this coils blew me away – it absolutely zinged off my tongue with clouds to die for!

As to the longevity of the coils I am currently reviewing Smok’s AL85 kit that comes with the Baby Beast tank.

It might be my bad luck but I am getting no flavour and tons [I mean tons] of dry hits after just one day with both the coils included in the kit – see my review soon.

I have used 70/30 and 80/20 VG and PG e-liquids on the SMOK TFV12 coils and a week later they are all performing and wicking well – and that’s using them every single night at high wattage.

Innokin EQ Starter Kit Review

Hello Sup Vapers, Lorenzo is here again. Today we will talk about one of the many Pod Mods that are coming out recently – the Innokin EQ Starter Kit.

Thanks to Innokin and Cloris from Innokin marketing department, I had the possibility to review the Innokin EQ Pod Mod.

Innokin EQ Packaging List 

Inside the package we will find: 

  • EQ Battery
  • Refillable Pod
  • Micro USB Cable
  • User Manual
  • User Packet

Innokin EQ Starter Kit Specs and Features 

  • Size: 90 x 35 x 15 mm
  • Capacity: 2 ml
  • Battery: 3.7V/Built-in 800 mAh
  • Standby current: 50 uA max
  • Maximum current: 9.5 A
  • Charging current: 5 V/0.5 A (EST. time: 2 h)
  • Coil: Plexus 0.15 ohm Coil
  • Plexus EQ coil for MTL vape
  • Adjustable regular/boost mode
  • Ultra-compact design
  • Superior flavor and lifespan
  • Large heating area
  • The first mesh type MTL coil

Innokin EQ Starter Kit ReviewTechnically speaking we have an 800 mAh battery with a fast recharge system and a very cool easy to fill system so with the mod comes only one 0.5 ohm Pod with Plexus coils and a capacity of 2ml any way you easily find online or on Innokin website other pods for only 5 dollars.

We will also have a boost mod that we can activate just keeping pressed the fire button while the battery is off so we will be able to choose between Red (15W) and White (13.5) even with the boost on the coil performance and duration will be incredible with also a really fast activation but most importantly the flavor will remain almost nice as without the boost.

The hit isn’t bad and we will definitely have a mouth to lung vaping style. Anyway, the production of the cloud is really good. The innovative refill system will prevent any leak and will give you the possibility to choose which e-liquid to use.

The pod is ultra-compact and stay really well inside the hand and it comes in 5 colors (Grey, Black, Purple, Blue, Red).

Innokin EQ Starter Kit Review

Innokin EQ Pros and Cons

Cons:

  • First of all the tank is a little bit too dark and it is hard to see the liquid level besides that it looks really nice.
  • The Kit comes with only one pod (that’s a big con, if someone is going to buy this product as a customer and he finds a defective pods he won’t be able to try it he surely won’t be happy about that, we are also habituated to get at least 2 coils when we buy each type of atomizer).
  • If you try to do a long hit the pod will sing!
  • Fire Button problems.

Pros:

  • Really Compact
  • Fill method
  • No leaking
  • Paint
  • Look and feel nice
  • No Condensation
  • Nice MTL Hit
  • Switch between Boost Mod and Not
  • Nice Flavour (One of the best on market)
  • Plexus Coils
  • Battery Capacity
  • Good Price

Conclusion

So, guys, that’s it. In the end, I can say that this product is one of the Best Pod Vapes in the market, definitely superior to some other types of pods.

It is well studied and well made with really good quality materials. Again the refill system is one of the best and easier to use on the market. The price is affordable and the duration of the coil is good. In a word, the power mod can give you some satisfaction that may miss in a normal mod.

I will definitely buy some of those AIOs to give them to some of my friends that are still smoking coffin nails (Coffin Nail = Cigarette).

Augvape “VTEC” V200 – your new engine

In general, Augvape harnesses the wrong word for a long time. We began to feed us with “tales” about this novelty in early December, and there is still no information on the official website.

Without further ado, I present Augvape “VTEC” V200 to you .

Augvape VTEC V200 - your new engine ...
Equipment
– VTEC 200W mod
– USB cable
– user manual
– warranty card

As you probably already understood, the designers were inspired by the legendary VTEC engine, which was completed, and maybe even now Honda cars.
Augvape VTEC V200 - your new engine ...
I must say that they did it perfectly, I mean, to create a box mod that quite well resembles the cylinder block of the aforementioned engine. Here you and the inscription characteristic, and stylized under the control button fill cap, and, of course, decorative bolts, as if fixing the two halves of the device. Similarity or stylization under the cylinder block is right on Pyaterochka.
Augvape VTEC V200 - your new engine ...
If we ignore the basic idea of ​​design, we can see that ergonomics should not be bad – the box is rather narrow. But the protruding edges on the sides will obviously dug into the palm, but then excuse me, we wanted a “true design” – get it. In general, the exterior is not overloaded – the device looks quite interesting and harmonious.
Augvape VTEC V200 - your new engine ...
The thickness of the boxing fashion “horse”, that’s what I need, and the fact that large atoms here will feel particularly comfortable. We should also note the landing pad connector. It is stylized as a “pattern” of a cast-wheel disc of a sports car – and again it does not look good, but quite fit. It turns out that designers do not get paid for it in vain.
Augvape VTEC V200 - your new engine ...
Get down to the control panel. The usual control buttons are replaced by a spinning wheel – original and, as for me, much more convenient than the usual construct.
Augvape VTEC V200 - your new engine ...
But there is another point – this wheel is issued outside the casing of the mod, and therefore it will constantly “unauthorized” rotate when pushed into a pocket or bag, and you never know where. Perhaps this will not be a problem, since usually the device is removed already turned off, i.e. spinning the wheel will not change any settings.
Augvape VTEC V200 - your new engine ...
Next, the screen – it is not catchy, not color. The information on it is not large, but sufficient, everything that is needed is available.
Augvape VTEC V200 - your new engine ...
And now, for me personally, a frightening moment. The developers say about some hidden button fire, the reception on the body is really not visible. And here I came across one photo on the social networks of the manufacturer – we look.
Augvape VTEC V200 - your new engine ...
If you look at see some kind of LED, and a dark spot is slightly higher than it under the stack. If this is a fire button, then it comes out touch. Here, dismiss how such a constructive button can be made in a “such” fashion. This is the internal combustion engine of a sports car – power, power, buttons, levers … Yes, such a “cool” button is asked for a fire, this is just like a gas pedal for a car – the most important thing in a car. I do not even talk about alleged problems in its use, such as possible incorrect work, pressing in gloves may not be available at all. In short, if this proves true, then I wash my hands. I can not remember offhand examples of such a construct and experience of its operation.
Augvape VTEC V200 - your new engine ...
The lid of the battery compartment is movable and folding, well, well, I will not even speak. In addition to this photo did not find anything, so sorry.
Augvape VTEC V200 - your new engine ...
The performance is sufficient – it remains to wait for the tests, because nothing is known about the control chipset, the manufacturer is unlikely to have attended to the release of its own design.

Build Quality & Design

I received the Geekvape Aegis Mini kit in the Black and Green version.

It is beautiful!!

The colour match between the green accents on the mod and the ones on the tank looks incredible too!

This is so so so gorgeous in real life.Aegis mini kit side views

Little details such as the stitching on the hand grip panel – exactly like the larger versions. The colour of the stitching matches the metal mod accents and the tank accents perfectly.aegis mini grip

This tiny little mod gives you the feel of a perfectly created miniature replica!aegis mini kit size comparison

Every little detail is smaller and even cuter on this!aegis mini mod view

On the side of the mod is the screen which is clear and bright no issues with this at all. The adjustment buttons are below the screen and are the clicky-est-tap-dancing-shoe-noise buttons I think I have ever encountered!

aegis mini screenThe fire button is above the screen and is really small. It doesn’t have the “Rocker” switch style the bigger Aegis versions have. But perfectly responsive I just keep missing it as it is small!aegis mini buttons

The spring loaded 510 connector on the top of the mod is held in with 3 visible screws but all seems secure and no problems here. Measuring across the 510 I would say 26mm tanks should fit on here without overhang and possibly up to 28mm diameter.aegis mini mod top view

On the base of the mod is the battery vent holes and the plug which you remove to access the USB charging port.aegis mini mod base

The body has a rubbery feel and it does attract fluff, but it is lovely to hold and the metallic accents and leather panel all fit perfectly. Please excuse all the fluff this has accumulated over the 2 weeks in use. Just to make it worse the tank keeps leaking so wiping the mod with a tissue is turning it into a fluffball too!

But one tip I have found a simple rinse under the tap will remove all the fluff!

I have had a few leaks from this tank when I first filled up. I took the base off the tank and found the installed coil was loose – so make sure to check that before you first fill up.cerberus tank dismantled

However as time went by I still get leaks when the mod is tipped over – even when taking the photos for this review I was mopping up behind it.aegis mini damage

I didn’t fancy the Freezing in the freezer test as you cannot remove the battery from this model which made me poo my pants a bit at the thought of it expanding and becoming damaged.

Also I will leave the mod to dry for a few days – as some times circuit board damage only shows up when it starts to rust.

Set-up Guide

The mod and tank arrive in the box separately. You will need to fill the tank, charge the battery and screw them both together. Then away you go…

Mod Basic operation

  • Turn mod on or off = 5 clicks of the fire button
  • To lock/unlock mod = hold + and – adjustment buttons down at the same time. You can still fire the mod but the adjustment buttons are locked. A small padlock symbol will be displayed on the screen.
  • To enter the Menu = press the fire button quickly 3 times.
  • To exit the Menu = press and hold the fire button or wait 5 seconds without pressing any buttons.
  • Adjust power / temperature = use the up and down adjustment buttons

Menu

The menu system on this is pretty simple.

Three clicks of the fire button will highlight one of the functions on the screen. Click the fire button to move onto the next function or the adjustment buttons to adjust.

  • Power – when this function is highlighted use the adjustment buttons to select which power mode you require – Power (Variable Wattage), Ni, SS, Ti (Temperature control modes), TCR, VPC (Custom curve mode) and Bypass. Press fire when the required mode is showing on the screen.
  • Temperature Control – you select the applicable mode depending on the coil material you are using (Ni= Nickel 200, Ti = Titanium, SS = Stainless Steel).
  • Coil resistance = when in TC or TCR mode select the coil resistance and press the – adjustment button to lock this. This should be done with a cold coil before using temperature control modes.
  • TCR – select the TCR mode as stated above. Using the adjustment buttons set the TCR parameters and press and hold fire to confirm.
  • VPC – select the VPC power mode. Using the adjustment buttons adjust the parameters and press fire to confirm. You can do this for up to 5 memory slots.
  • Puff Counter – when this is highlighted press the + adjustment button to clear the counter – press the + button again to cancel clearing the counter.

Safety Features

The mod also has the following safety protections:

  • Short circuit
  • High resistance / no atomiser found
  • Low voltage (battery needs charging)
  • Device overheating
  • 10s fire cut off (to prevent accidental firing and damage)
  • Anti-dry prompt (Temperature control mode)

How To Charge The Battery

To make sure that the mod stays waterproof the USB charging port is covered with a watertight plug – so try not to lose it!

This can apparently support 2A charging – however I was charging using the USB on my PC which I think does only output 0.5A. The charging time from an empty battery was 1 hour 15 mins roughly which is ace really.

  • Pop your nail in the little cut out on the USB port plug.aegis mini usb cover
  • Lift up the plug.
  • Install the small end of the USB cable into the charge port.aegis mini charging
  • Install the other end of the cable into a suitable USB outlet.
  • Whilst charging the screen will show a battery graphic.
  • When fully charged the screen will go blank.

How To Fill The Tank

  • Unscrew the top cap – it only takes about half a turn.
  • Add e-liquid to the filling ports (not the centre hole!). cerberus tank filling ports
  • Watch the liquid level through the tank glass.
  • Replace the top cap.

How To Change The Coil Head

An excellent feature of the Geekvape Cerberus tank is the ability to use coil heads from other manufacturers. The Smok V8 Baby, Vaporesso GT and Eleaf HW coils will all fit and work in here – just make sure the resistance and power required will suit the mod.

Coils – Installed: Smok TFV8 Baby. Left to Right: Geekvape Supermesh, Eleaf HW and Vaporesso GT
  • Remove the tank from the mod.
  • Turn the tank upside down and unscrew the base.cerberus tank coil removed
  • If a coil is installed unscrew it from the base.
  • Screw a new coil into the base.cerberus tank coil installed
  • Replace the base onto the rest of the tank.
  • Fill the tank and leave to stand for a good 10-15 mins as this has mesh coils which if not fully soaked in e-liquid will feel like vaping hot tar.

How Does the Geekvape Aegis Mini Kit Perform?

Flavour & Cloud Production

This is a Sub Ohm tank so it is best to use thicker e-liquid with a lower nicotine strength.

I am using my usual E-liquid – Stika Bombz Fruit Salad which is 80% VG and 6mg nicotine.

Super Mesh X2 Coil

Both coils in the full kit are the same specification.

This is a 0.3ohm coil made from KA1.geekvape super mesh

The rated power is 30-45W and the “Best” recommended power is 30-40W.

I found myself using this at 45W. I just felt it needed a bit more Oomph.

The clouds from this are surprising when you think of the low wattage you are running it at!

The flavour is pretty good – not the best I have had from a mesh coil but by no means terrible. I found the Uwell Nunchaku tank which you can run at 40W is better for flavour and that has standard rather than mesh coils. Also the Vaporesso NRG tank with the CCELL coil which only needs around 30W was better flavour in my opinion. The GT CCELL coil will fit into this tank!

I did find the flavour improved after a few tank fulls of e-liquid so it appears there is a short “bedding in” period. So far the coil life has been great at over 700 puffs.

Airflow wise – you can fully close off the airflow and fully open there is some restriction with a bit of a whistle. If you are expecting the virtual no restriction of say a TFV12 Prince tank then this will be too restricted for you.

I enjoy a restricted DTL vape and I tend to have this in the half open position. For an explanation of what the term “DTL” means read our guide to MTL and DTL Vaping Styles.

I will say this tank is not as thirsty as a lot of mesh sub ohm tanks – but it is higher resistance and running at lower power. After a week of use the performance of this coil has not decreased either.

Geekvape Aegis Mini Mod Performance

I have no fancy gear to test the accuracy of the mod – so I used the Cerberus tank on my Voopoo Alpha One mod at 45W and the same on the Aegis Mini mod and found no difference in performance. So from what I can tell the Aegis Mini is outputting pretty much the same power.aegis mini voopoo

I also tried the Freemax Fireluke Mesh tank on both mods set at 65W and again the performance seemed to be equal between both mods.

The fire button is very responsive even though I keep missing it!

I do find the adjustment buttons weird. Single short presses result in 0.1 increment adjustments. Hold the button down and it will fly through in 1.0 increments. But it really does fly quick and hard to let go in time at the setting you want!

The screen is lovely and clear and despite being dropped and knocked over this little mod still works an absolute treat. I have had no issues or errors with the mod at all.

Battery Life

This is a pretty basic device in terms of only a small 2-colour screen and no flashing bling lights.

The power / temperature setting and your vaping habits will obviously cause a variation in battery life. But to give you a guide vaping at 45W regularly I got 315 puffs and just over 5 hours.

As the battery level drops (Like on the original Aegis) it will not output full power. You find even set at 45W it will only put out like 24W – then the battery weak prompt comes up. At this point the tank has already started to flood as it is too low power to vaporise the liquid sufficiently.

Pros

  • One of the prettiest kits I have ever seen – like a miniature version of the bigger Aegis models.
  • Build quality is superb, all the accents and finishes are perfect.
  • So robust – this has fell of a shelf 3 times onto a hard desk and coped with the leaking tank when first installed and not a blemish or issue from this.
  • Even on my old PC charging at 0.5A it only took 1 hour 15 mins to fully charge.
  • Surprisingly good battery life.
  • Ability to use other brand coils in the Cerberus tank.

Cons

  • The installed coil was loose in the tank – so make sure to check before filling.
  • I still kept getting leaks from the tank whenever it was tipped over slightly even with 80%VG liquid and I took it apart several times to check all was ok.
  • The rubber coating does attract more fluff than a boiled sweet in a trouser pocket.
  • There are better tanks out there for flavour at the same wattage.

Final Review Verdict

I love this little mod. It is so cute, so lovely in your hand and it just does what you ask of it. Plus in the tradition of the Aegis range so far in the hands of a clumsy arse like me it hasn’t skipped a beat either.

The included Cerberus Tank was OK. This has higher resistance coils than those used in the Nova kit and the performance was decent. Not horrendous but not something I would rave about either.

I possibly would suggest something like the Uwell Nunchaku tank on here as that runs well at like 40W. At similar power levels the Nunchaku tank is far superior for flavour in my opinion. Other suggestions are the Vaporesso NRG tank with the CCELL ceramic coil  – which only needs around 30W, Eleaf Melo 4 or a MTL style tank such as the Innokin T20S.

Of course you can also try some of the Smok V8 Baby, Eleaf HW or the lovely Vaporesso CCELL coils in this tank too – which may improve the performance. I will be popping a CCELL coil in here myself as I think they are great.

Running some of the better mesh tanks such as the Freemax Mesh Pro would be a pain as the mod only outputs 80W and with an internal battery constant use at 75W on the Freemax tank will mean your battery life will be poor. However running the Geekvape Aegis Mini mod at 45W the battery life was way better than I was expecting!
