SMOK TFV12 Cloud Beast Review


First Impression

The first thing that you are greeted with when you open that box is this beautiful, massive Beast of a tank. When you pull out the tank and pull the little tab and on box’s second level you will see two coils, a handful of extra parts, and a spare glass. The packaging is done very nicely and is typical Smok.

What’s in the box

  • One SMOK TFV12 Cloud Beast King Sub-Ohm Tank
  • One V12 T12 Duodenary Coil Head
  • One V12 X4 Quadruple Coil Head
  • One V12 Q4 Quadruple Coil Head
  • One Replacement Glass Tank Section
  • Spare Parts Pack
  • Two vape bands
  • User’s Manual

From the Top to the Bottom

As the case with all the Smok tanks that are in the Beast Family, there’s  Smoks proprietary wide bore drip tip. I really do wish that Smok would begin including an extra drip tip, or even better yet, they would switch over to the Goon style drip tips. They do however have a 510 drip tip adapter that allows you to run all your traditional 510 drip tips. The top cap is the same as on all of their other tanks in the line.

The chimney on the TFV12 is short and wide. The coil screws directly into the chimney that gives this tank a very conical design. This essentially  enhances the clouds and makes sure you that will get every bit of flavor out the coil. The midsection of the tank is made of glass of course and on each side of the glass, there is a really nice thick o-ring.

The base of this tank has some typical Smok branding as well as some really attractive knurling. Below that, are two large airflow slots. The air flow that you get with this tank is just no-doubt massive. This is for sure one of the most open, airy tanks that are on the market today. The measurements of these slots are 15 mm x 4 mm.

At the bottom of the base, you will see some Smok branding as well along with a 510 pin that has stainless steel threading. This 510 pin is non-adjustable, and does not protrude much. The TFV12 is 25mm at its base and tapers up to 28 mm at the widest point. The Beast has a 6 ml capacity. It’s available rainbow, gold, black, and stainless steel.

The Coils

V12 T12 Duodenary Coil

This is the largest cloud-producing coil in the box. It rates at .12 ohms and its range is 60 to 350 watts. Smok’s recommended range is 130 to 200 watts. When using this coil, you will be able to fully cloud up any room in short time. It gives fantastic flavour. While I definitely like this coil, it really doesn’t fit the way I vape. I typically run in at around 150 watts.

V12 X4 Quadruple Coil

This rating of this coil is from 60 to 220 watts and it rates at .15 ohms. It’s recommended wattage is 100 to 170 watts. For me, this coil runs best at  120 watts. This one gives me a thick dense flavorful vape and really nice cloud coverage. The V12 is probably my favorite coil in the box. It gives a good balance of clouds and flavor without really having to crank up the wattage.

V12 Q4 Quadruple Coil

The Q4 has a recommended wattage of 90 to 160 Watts, but you can take it up to 190 Watts. It rates at .15 ohms and it is truly gives a flavorful vape. This coil is no way a slouch in the cloud department. I like to run this one at just around 130 Watts. That is the sweet spot on this one for me.

Just a quick note here about the Smok coils; I’ve been using them for years. In this reviewers opinion, Smok is probably the best company out there when it comes to the quality control of their coils. It’s very rare that you get a bad coil from Smok. They’re always on top of their game when it comes to this point.


If clouds are your thing, then you gotta give the TFV12 a try. For sure it’s the gold standard in this category. With the Beast, you can put out endless. massive clouds and vape as hot as you wish.

Smok has maintained a great track record when it comes to making quality tanks. In addition to the quality of their tanks, they make superior coils as well.
