The SMOK TVF8 Just Blew My Mind! Initial Impressions


The SMOK TVF8 has been getting RAVE reviews across the board. And now I know WHY!

Here’s some initial impressions of the SMOK TVF8 — AKA The CLOUD BEAST!

I’ve had a rough couple of months with my RTAs. First came the LEMO 3, which turned out to be a useless piece of junk that leaked more frequently than Hilary Clinton’s emails. Next up came the Griffin 25 RTA. Now, this one was a bit different because, once you have it setup and primed correctly, it is one of the best RTAs on the market.

But here’s the rub: it is almost IMPOSSIBLE to set up correctly. The margin for error when wicking is insane, meaning 8/10 builds go completely wrong. And that’s just not how I want to live my life.

So, today, I went out and bought the SMOK TVF8 — AKA the Cloud BEAST.

I’ve heard A LOT about this tank. Everybody is raving about it, so I figured why the hell not! I’ve already spent around $200 on RTAs in the past two months, so one more won’t hurt my already reeling-finances too much.

I picked up the SMOK TVF8 from my local vape shop; it cost me $38. The box, contents, packaging and supporting documents are all topnotch. SMOK has not cut a single corner here. Everything feels exceedingly premium.

SMOK TVF8: What’s In The Box?


Quite a lot, as it goes. SMOK has been very generous with what it’s offering here and the full gamut of goodies is as follows:

  • 1 x TF-V8 Cloud Beast Tank
  • 1 x V8-T8 Octuple Coil Head(0.15Ω)
  • 1 x V8-Q4 Quadruple Coil Head(0.15Ω)
  • 1 x V8 Exclusive Turbo RBA Head(0.28Ω)
  • 1 x Replacement Glass Tube
  • 1 x User Manual

The SMOK TVF8 is listed as a 6ml capacity tank. But this isn’t entirely true — if you run it in RBA mode, you only have 5.5ml to play with. Still, that’s a pretty sizeable tank by most standards, so no bother.


Speaking of RBA mode vaping, the deck on the SMOK TVF8 is plenty sizeable at 18mm. The unit comes with a pre-installed dual Clapton coils already installed, which is awesome, so all you have to do is wick it and you’re vaping.

Below are the specs for the additional pre-built coils:

  • Smok V8-T8 – 0.15ohm (50w-260/Best 120-180w)
  • Smok V8-Q4 – 0.15ohm (50w-180/Best 90-150w)

As you can see, the SMOK TVF8 is designed for power-users. This means if you’re partial to running your mod at 40W, you might want to look elsewhere. This thing only really comes into its own once you’re up around 80-90W.

I haven’t had much of a chance to test out the SMOK TVF8’s capabilities, as I only picked it up this afternoon. Initial impressions are very good, though. It wicks easily, a blessing after dealing with the Griffin 25, and since install I have yet to have a single leak.

I started out conservative with the dual-clapton coils, around 60W, but quickly realised they were hungry for more, so I cranked her up to 90W and was confronted with a huge rush of clouds and flavour.

I’ve been vaping with the SMOK TVF8 for about four hours now and it is DAMN good. So good, in fact, I am writing this with a nicotine-induced headache.

I’ll be doing my review of the SMOK TVF8 next week. But suffice to say it will probably go a little something like this: “OMFG IT’S SO GOOD. OMG! OMG! OMG!”
