How to change Coil on SMOK Stick V8 Baby

Removing the coil on the SMOK TFV8 Cloud Beast and TFV12 Cloud Beast King is not hard. There are ways of doing it wrong though. In reviews people usually write about applying too much pressure to the glass, which can break. The coil may also be stuck, and not want to come out.

For the safest, easiest way to remove the coil, take the following steps:

  • With a firm grip on the base section, unscrew the top cap. Do not grip the glass section, as it may break under pressure.
  • With the top cap undone, remove the glass section. If the base has come off, but not the top lid, hold onto the glass with a towel or glove to gently remove it to access the coil inside.
  • When the glass section is off, unscrew the coil from either the base or the chimney, by holding the bottom or top cap, and then unscrewing the coil.
  • If the coil remains stuck in the base, try either using a rubber glove, pliers, or inserting an Allen key through the airflow slots until it comes out the other side, and then gently unscrew the coil from the base, by holding the bottom tight.
  • Once the old coil has come out, place the new coil onto the base and turn clockwise to secure it into place.

Internal Building Quality

The quality of the tank is one of the best. Using the thickest in a glass without compromising the flavor of the liquid, the smooth operation from the glass housing to over the heating coils, through the mouthpiece and then to the user is expert level.

The coils inside have been crafted just for this specific vape kit, granting a highly functioning piece that works with just about any situation imaginable.

The inside components are replaceable, making this a long-lasting piece that can be interchangeable for those that want an upgrade or need a replacement part without having to purchase an entire SMOK Stick V8 kit again.

SMOK makes high-quality best products and stands by them with each and every one of them that they sell. For the best quality vape at an affordable price, many people look towards the use of a SMOK stick.


The ease of use on the SMOK Stick is one of the best things vapers have a chance to use. Simply press down on the button in the front and you are sent a stream of delicious, warm vapor that has been expertly warmed and then cooled, allowing to enjoy any flavor decided for that day.

The operation of this unit is easy for anyone and with the help of the user manual, everyone is easily able to find out for themselves how well the unit works. One of the best things is that always know when the liquid is low because of the clear housing or when the battery is close to dying because of the indicator lights that are shown.

The performance of the sub-ohms is incredible. With two different powered coils that are set to heat up the liquid in different ohm’s, it adds to the experience that the user gets when taking in the vapor and being able to make it their own.

While the set is not completely controlled by the user, it does provide an easy way to enjoy vaping without having to be an expert in the field of what to buy and how to use the products. This compact choice is one that many love and you can easily slip it into your pocket and then use it with just a push of a button while you’re on the go.

Compatibility with Tanks

There are many tanks on the market that are compatible with the SMOK Stick V8, however, using the product we should consider the wattage from the coils, using dual coils and also the battery. All of these will need to be replaced along with the tank of the unit in order to continue having it working correctly.

Some have replaced the tank with others that are not from big TFV8 Baby Beast, while others have enjoyed the use of the tank that the tank currently comes with. This is a personal choice and it does call for some trial and error while using the product.

TFV8 Big Baby Beast Tank

TFV8 tank is the one that comes on the product, allowing the user to have 5ml of liquid with them at all times inside the unit. It is made of clear glass that is thicker, but not too thick as that would change the vaping experience. With a thinner glass chamber, flavors can be felt smoother without complications.

Of course, this glass was made to be strong, but if breaking it, replacement parts are available, or just switch with another tank on the market. The stainless steel around the tank provides additional reinforcement, while the hinge lock snaps it into place.

Use the top-fill design to easily refill when necessary with little to no mess or fuss. Adjust the airflow in and out of the tfv8, and allow the liquid to effortlessly flow into the ultra-wide drip tip that comes on the unit.

Competitors of the SMOK Stick V8

SMOK Stick V12 Prince

The name of the industry is SMOK Stick and the Prince is a leading contender. Providing a smooth vape, beautiful colors and a compact design is it a rival of the other SMOK Sticks that are being offered.

The Cloud Beast King big tank is inside this mod, making it a great choice for those that do not like the TFV8 Baby Beast tanks. With a 3000mAh battery, you can expect great battery life from this pen as compared to the others. This pen differs because the device is packed with M4 0.17phm quadruple coils inside the body of the system.

It does have a one finger operation point using the easy to press down button. An LED light indicator is provided, and the overall designs are portable, smooth and professional. This gives everyone a high-level of vape every time. Use the 510 connectors to attach other mods and get the ease of use.

SMOK Stick X8

As another competitor on the market when comparing SMOK Sticks, this one has a sleek look to it that is more professional and less colorful. The size is the same, making it an ideal choice to go with for those that like to vape on the go and want something that can easily fit inside their pocket leaving the same big vapor production. It is an updated version, so many of the specs have been updated from the previous.

The device includes the long-lasting 3000 mAh battery that is housed on the inside and charges using a USB. The TFV8 X-Baby tank is able to house a decent amount of liquid so you don’t always have to refill. The top refill entrance allows you to do so with ease and fewer messes.

The rubber coating on this pen is a nice touch as compared to the other metal, cold pens in the line. The firing circle is also a perk and heats up the liquid evenly, so with every drag you take, you get a delicious, smooth pull.

My way of understanding the significance of vaping came not only through the disruption of smoking but its effects on society as a whole. Now I bring people to vaping and bring vaping to people. I love using new gear, writing in-depth reviews and generally nerding out about vaping to like-minded people.

    I have a smoke stick that’s perfect. But I just bought a morph 2. I get thin clouds and it chokes me. I’ve tried different wattages but can’t find my smoke sweet spot. It’s not burning like my old trusty pen.
