SMOK released a more portable version of the TFV8 Cloud Beast Tank, the SMOK TFV8 Big Baby Beast. All of the features of this new tank is the miniature version of the Cloud Beast. Instead of having the 6ml capacity of the Cloud Beast, the Baby Beast has 3ml.
The Baby Beast uses SMOK’s Turbo Engine Coil Structure. This is what differs it from the TFV4 Micro Tank. Technically, it’s an upgraded version of the latter.
The TFV8 Baby Beast sub-ohm tank measures 22mm. It’s made from 304 stainless steel, providing a thick and tough built. This device is easy on the hands and portable, given its small-scale size.
The Smoktech Baby Beast has a top-fill system. When refilling this tank, rather than pulling off the cap, you would need to swing open the top cap sideways. Remember to push the cap down firmly to fully secure it. The juice fill hole, on the other hand, measures 7.5mm x 3.5mm, of which, you can easily fit your dropper tip into.
The two adjustable airflow slots provide significant amount of air, they measure 12.7mm x 1.5mm each. When I tried to adjust the airflow, the airflow ring feels firm to turn. However, loosening the tank a bit makes it easier to manipulate.
I admire the Delrin drip tip. The 11mm size is ideal and very comfortable to use. And it’s compatible with a 510-thread. However, I was getting nominal amount of condensation over the drip tip. But its tolerable, given that the Delrin drip tip does its job of protecting my lips from getting burned even when chain vaping.
The Hyper Engine coils found in the TFV8 Baby Beast are somewhat similar to the coils on the Cloud Beast Tank, but were presented smaller in size. These coils seemed to have some improvements on its vapor and flavor production. But not what as I expected it to be, the performance advancements were very minimal to take notice.
The V8-Baby-Q2 Dual Core, on the other hand, comes preinstalled. It has a conical shape and the wicking holes 2mm x 3mm in size.
I tested the Hyper Engine coils. I had no leaking issues and break-in time was no longer needed. I was able to get a significant flavor and agreeable cloud production, even in low wattages. And at 75W, the right amount of clouds and superb flavor met my expectations.
However, the Baby Beast consumes a lot of e-juice. At 80W, I was able to drain the tank in just a single session. And the tank tends to heat up in higher wattages.
Overall, the SMOK TFV8 Big Baby Beast is a great alternative for the TFV8 Cloud Beast if you want a more portable device but at the same time get similar flavor and vapor performance. The only thing that disappoints me is that SMOK did not include an RBA deck in the package.
- Portable size.
- Performance improved.
- Tank tends to heat up at higher wattages.
