The TFV4 sub-ohm tank from SMOK hit the racks in 2015 and has been hailed as a genuinely premium vaping product. Look at our intensive review of the Smok TFV4 Sub Ohm Tank below to learn all about it.
The TFV4 (Taste Furious, V4) is the latest release from the popular company SMOK. A sub-ohm tank, it comes with a range of coils and an outstanding RBA section, and neat features such as a cooling dip trip and a top fill function. The TFV4 sub-ohm tank can hold up to 5ml of juice for vaping and is priced at $49.99. Interesting as this sub-ohm tank sounds, below is an in-depth look at what it can do.
The TFV4 sub-ohm tank makes filling the tank easy, thanks to its top fill design which is accessed via the sliding top. For those who are very precise with their vaping temperature and prefer a cooler vape, the drip tip is double layered with airflow control. The coils provided are with organic cotton made in Japan, which reportedly provides a smoother and richer vape. All the TFV4 coils available are compatible with this tank.
This review will mostly focus on the most impressive feature of the product: the SMOK TFV4 coils. This kit comes with a single coil RBA base, a triple coil, and a quadruple coil. Normally this is more than enough to satisfy users, but SMOK has really outdone itself, releasing 6 new coil types and a dual-coil RBA base. This is insane variety, and we dig it!
We’ll start off with the TF-T3 triple coil head, which comes pre-installed inside the tank. Its primary features are three huge vertical coils, each wrapped individually in Japanese cotton wicks and then further enveloped in a stainless steel chamber. Only the top is exposed. The bottom, on the other hand, features huge air slots which are enough to tell you about the coil’s stellar vapor production ability.
All the coils are made using high-quality Kanthal wire, with 0.2-ohm resistance. The recommended wattage range is 40-130 W, but from our tests, we think that 60 W and above is the optimum level. The vapor production is unlike anything we’ve ever seen a tank produce. It performs even better than some of the RBAs we’ve tested. The flavor is also quite good, but above 120 W can develop a burnt taste.
Set at 80 W, we vaped a mixed PG/VG liquid. It lasted around two weeks with the triple coil. When we tried an almost-purely-VG juice, the coil was almost unusable after only four days because of the accumulation.
The TF-Q4 quadruple coil head with a 0.5-ohm resistance is completely different than the triple coil head. The coil has four parallel coils rather than four individually-wrapped coins. When seen from above this design gives the illusion of a single giant vertical coil. The protective chamber, with 16 individual wicking holes, also has a unique design.
In terms of performance, the quadruple coil is hard to describe; but it’s even more mind-blowing than the triple coil and has a higher power threshold, ranging between 40 and 140W.
Finally, the TF-R1 RBA deck will make coil builders very happy, since mounting custom coils has been made very simple. Where the SMOK coil heads had the protective chamber fixed, the RBA’s protective chamber is detachable and exposes the deck. All you’ll have to do then is loosen up the two large screws, secure your coil firmly, wick it, add your vaping juice, and you’re done.
The airflow slot underneath the coil is quite large, so expect lots of vapor and rich flavor. The cotton wicks excellently too, due to the large wicking ports on both sides of the deck.
Finally, there’s the TF-S6 Sextuple Coil Head with a 0.4-ohm resistance and a power range between 40 – 100 W. At this point, we really thought that putting six coils was sort of ridiculous, but we stand corrected. It is hard to tell which coil head was the most impressive since they all are just insane! The vapor production on this one was incredible and it has been performing fantastically so far.
This tank is a giant, with 24.5 mm width and 73.5 mm height. The good news is that it has the capacity to hold 5 ml of liquid; but on the other hand, a lot of mods are probably going to just hang, except for the SMOK X Cube 2 160 W temperature control mod, which was designed to work with this tank.
The design and structure of the SMOK TFV4 is stunning. Everything is made of stainless steel except for the glass tube. There are a total of 8 adjustable airflow slots – four each on the drip tip and on the base. The innovative design also features a top-fill design that is leak-proof, a variety of disposable coils , and an RBA deck. According to SMOK, the TFV4 sub-ohm tank kit will be the last tank you will ever need to purchase and, seeing as how customizable it is, they may just be right.
The SMOK TFV4 sub-ohm tank kit comes with the following accessories other than the TFV4 tank: a triple coil head, a quadruple coil head, an RBA head, an extra Pyrex glass, some spare parts, and a user manual.
The SMOK TFV4 sub-ohm tank has great features such as a top fill and a unique drip tip, and is overall durable and well-built. The coils provided are excellent and will cater to all your vaping requirements, SMOK has six other coils that will also work. The RBA section makes this tank a great alternate to the RTA, and is one of the best we have seen on a sub-ohm tank till now.
The only drawback is the price, which is high enough to be prohibitive to some buyers. But rest assured that if you do decide to go for the SMOK TFV4 kit, you will be investing in a one-of-a-kind product.
