SMOK TFV8 X-Baby Sub Ohm Tank Review

First Impression

Just as SMOK came out with the Micro TFV4 Tank after first releasing the regular TFV4, they decided to come out with the TFV 8 Baby Beast tank in order to similarly complement its big brother. The baby beast is portable and convenient, and with its new set of improved coil heads, it’s vaping better than ever. We weren’t sure whether it was worth SMOK’s time and effort because, after all, it is just a smaller version of a tank we already have. A lot of our customers who enjoy their Baby Beast tanks wrote in to ask us about whether they think it was worth to get the second version as well, and so we decided to find out for you. Our team at E-Cig Brands loves the TFV8, and so we gave the newest member of the Cloud Beast family a spin to see whether he has the capacity to live up to his older siblings or whether he’ll be forced to remain the runt of the family. Read on to see what we have to say.smok-tfv8-x-baby-sub-ohm-tank-review

SMOK TFV8 X-Baby Kit

The Micro TFV8 tank comes with the sub-ohm tank, a Q2 core 0.4Ω dual coil atomizer head, which is pre-installed, an extra 0.25Ω dual coil atomizer head, a replacement glass, and some o-rings and vape bands. It does not come with an RBA kit though you can purchase your own if you wish.

Specifications

  • Size: 59mm x 24.5mm
  • Diameter of Tank: 24.5mm
  • 510 Threaded Connection Port
  • Tank Capacity 4mL
  • Top Fill Swivel Construction & Large Fill Hole
  • Wide Bore Delrin Drip Tip
  • 2 Adjustable Airflow Control Slots
  • Made From Stainless Steel
  • Various Colors: Red, Purple, Blue, Gold, Stainless Steel, Rainbow, Green, Black

SMOK TFV8 X-Baby Design & Features

The TFV8 X-Baby kit contains many of the same features present in the previous version. The new tank holds about ⅓ less than the original tank, but the mini version really looks quite a bit smaller. If you set them next to each other, you can really see a stark difference, but that’s one aspect of this new tank we really appreciate. In today’s mile-a-minute paced world, we don’t have time to be lugging around clunky tanks. Most mods these days have ports with diameters no larger than 22ml, and so the TFV8, is simply too large. If you’re looking for a tank with the power of the TFV8 that fits more mods, then you’re going to love the micro version.

The top of the tank has a swivel cap that moves to the side so you can fill via the hole drilled through the top. Unfortunately, the cap is rather stiff when it first comes, but it should loosen up after a few uses at which point it does swivel back and forth more easily. We did love the swivel top because it made it far simpler to fill up the tank. All you really have to do is swivel and drip and you’re ready to go.

Performance

The 0.25Ω coil that comes packed with the kit is designed to vape from 50-110W although the recommended range is 60-80W. The V8 coils really do make a difference, and with this kit, you’re going to get a perfect combination of flavor production and vapor production. No longer will you have to choose between the two. Here at E-Cig Brands, we tried the vape at 65W with this atomizer and then again at 80W. Overall, we preferred the lower wattage, but the differences were, admittedly, marginal. Of course, make sure that, like usual, you are priming your wicks well before vaping to make sure you don’t take any dry hits.

You can adjust the airflow on the bottom of the tank, and there are slits on either side allowing you to customize your vape precisely to your needs. Whether you prefer a mouth-to-lungs vape or a direct-to-lungs vape, this tank can make it happen.

Even though the tank is small, it is a sub-ohm model, so it can handle high VG juices. We did notice a slight cottony taste to it with the first couple of draws, but it disappeared after that. Typically it would take an entire tank before breaking in a set of wicks, but we were able to break in the TFV8 X-Baby after only a couple minutes.

Overall

If you already have the TFV8, and you’re looking for something to use with your smaller mods, then the TFV8 X-Baby Sub-Ohm Tank might be perfect for you. You won’t break the bank while getting a second tank, and it’s size will allow you to use it for different purposes. While you may want to use the TFV8 for all-day vaping because of its enormous tank capacity, it’s mini-me may prove to be more convenient depending on the occasion. We do wish SMOK included an RBA kit in the kit, but otherwise, we really loved this tank.

GeekVape NOVA Kit Review | Stunning Mod & Cerberus Tank is 👌👌👌

GeekVape NOVA Kit Review

GeekVape NEW Kit

The Box

Design

From the packaging to the overall look and finish of the GeekVape NOVA Kit, I knew I was in for a good time.

You can almost hear the quality humming inside the box before you open it.

This was a surprise kit for me as well; I didn’t know it was coming and then it just turned up on my doorstep.

I quickly unboxed it and what I found was immediately pleasing to my eyes: a traditional box mod made from metal and decked out with a stunning resin accent.

GeekVape NEW Kit

The Back Profile

As anyone that regularly reads VapeBeat will know, these types of mods are my favorite.

I like the way they look, the way they feel, and how sturdy they are.

Exact dimensions for the mod are as follows: 88mm x 52mm x 25mm, and it weighs in at just 120g – not bad for a chunky box mod.

You have a circular fire key on the side that sits just above the mod’s OLED display. Below this is your power keys (one for up, one for down).

GeekVape NEW Kit

Side Profile; OLED Display; Power Keys

There’s also a USB port for firmware updates as well, though I haven’t had any since I’ve been using the mod.

The buttons are well positioned, you can easily find them without looking, and they have a nice click and travel to them.

To me, it reminds me of the VooPoo DRAG. Only a little more sophisticated. It’s also lighter too, and that is a pretty impressive feat given the GeekVape NOVA Kit’s build materials.

The battery door, which is essentially the entire back panel of the mod, slips off very easily. You access it via an indent on the exterior and it just pulls off.

The GeekVape NOVA Kit runs two 18650 cells, so you’ve got plenty of battery power at your disposal, though there is no support for larger cells like 21700 and the like.

GeekVape NEW Kit

There are also multiple color options for the resin finish, as you can see above. My review unit is the Gunmetal and Onyx Resin version.

GeekVape NOVA Box Mod Vaping Modes

As always, you have a TON of vaping modes and features inside this handsome little chap.

The mod is powered by GeekVape’s AS chipset which delivers lightning quick power (10 milliseconds) and solid stability all the way up to 200W.

Again, like the VooPoo DRAG, this mod hits fast and hard. The benefit of this is that you can run it at lower wattages than normal and still get a seriously good vape.

The upshot of this is that you save battery life without sacrificing any flavor or performance.

GeekVape NEW Kit

Fully Assembled

TC is present, and so too is bypass mode. As always, I tested these as best I could, despite not using either in my normal day-to-day vaping, and they all worked fine.

Personally, I prefer wattage mode. And I think most mods – especially those under $100 – are best off being using in this mode.

The GeekVape NOVA Kit is fine for TC vaping, but I think it’s best when it is used in power mode.

Also, I don’t really like fiddling around with wattage curve modes and the like. But if that’s your thang, then the GeekVape NOVA Kit is a solid performer in this regard.

Basically, it does everything you could possibly want from a vape mod and this, to me, makes it great for novice and beginner vapers alike.

Focus On www.urvapin.com For More Vape Start Kit.

GeekVape NOVA Kit Safety Features

The GeekVape NOVA Kit packs in a raft of safety features too, which make this box mod ideal for first-time vapers.

You have the following safety features courtesy of the AS chipset:

  • Battery Reverse Protection
  • Switch Timeout Protection
  • Overheat Protection
  • Over Charging Protection
  • Short Circuit Protection

GeekVape NOVA Performance

How’s it perform? In a word: brilliantly.

I haven’t been this impressed by a vape mod since I first tested the VooPoo DRAG.

It’s one thing to look good, but when those good looks are backed up by excellent, reliable performance you know you’re on to a winner.

The GeekVape NOVA Kit does everything that I want from a mod. The menu system is easy to navigate and the vaping modes, while not to everyone’s tastes, are all present and accounted for.

GeekVape NEW Kit

Up Close On The Resin

I ran sub ohm tanks, RDAs and RTAs on the GeekVape NOVA and it handled them all with aplomb.

You can lock the atty resistance too, which is great if you’re using rebuildable tanks. What impressed me the most, however, was just how simple this mod is to use and live with.

It just gets on with its job with zero fuss or fanfare.

You can set it up in the morning and just forget about it. The battery life is excellent, thanks to GeekVape’s excellent AS chipset which ensures power is efficiently managed.

GeekVape NEW Kit

How The Back Panel Comes Off

You have more than enough power to play with (200W) and support for a variety of vaping modes and styles.

Bottomline: GeekVape hit it out the park with this one. And it did it using traditional methods. Not fancy nonsense like a Bluetooth speaker or voice controls.

It’s just a great-looking, honest-to-goodness box mod. The type of mod you buy and live with for months and months without ever getting the urge to try something new.

GeekVape Cerberus Sub Ohm Mesh Tank Review

If you thought the GeekVape NOVA mod was good… well, I saved the best for last.

The Cerberus vape tank is phenomenal for a kit tank. It basically ruined the UWELL UForce during my side-by-side test with its excellent flavor and super-long-lasting coils.

GeekVape NEW Kit

The AWESOME Cerberus Tank

GeekVape NEW Kit

The Mesh Coil

The Cerberus is a simple tank, it runs a single mesh coil, and the flavor and airflow are great. It’s simple on the outside but it REALLY performs where it counts: flavor and coil performance.

My first mesh coil lasted almost two weeks, the second one is now still going as I write this review.

I liked the Cerberus sub ohm tank so much, I’ve been using it as my daily driver since I first got this kit through in the mail.

It’s really that good.

And when you attach it to the GeekVape NOVA mod, well… you’ve got yourself one of the best vape kits on the market right now.

This one comes highly recommended

Hellvape Dead Rabbit RDA review

Hellvape Dead Rabbit RDA

An RDA that has been gaining a lot of hype across forums and social media recently is the Dead Rabbit RDA from Hellvape, a 24mm RDA designed in the USA by Heathen featuring a large four post build deck!

The Dead Rabbit RDA is compatible with both single and dual coil builds, with large adjustable airflow present at the top of the RDA. A unique resin drip tip is found with each Dead Rabbit RDA, and a bottom feeding pin is included in the box so you can chuck clouds with your favourite squonker!

Specs

  • Designed in the USA
  • 24mm width
  • Large build deck
  • Generously sized post holes
  • Single or dual coil compatible
  • Unique ‘Rabbit Ear’ post design
  • Slide in top coil deck for ease of mounting coils
  • Post screws fasten to the flat side of the coil lead to preserve your build
  • 810 wide bore resin drip tip
  • Bottom feed pin included for squonking
  • Adjustable top side diagonal airflow
  • Gold plated positive post for better conductivity
  • Knurled airflow adjustment control for easy grip
  • Two 810 drip tip options
  • 510 drip tip adaptor included
  • Slotted or hex head screw options
  • Protruding 510 pin for hybrid mechanical mod compatibility
  • Peek insulators

Focus On www.ave40.com For More Vape Tank.

What’s in the box?

Inside the Dead Rabbit RDA Box you get the Dead Rabbit RDA with a colourful 810 resin drip tip, a Delrin 810 drip tip, 510 drip tip adaptor, gold plated bottom feed pin, spare o-rings, hex screwdriver and four hex screws.

Design and Build Quality

Manufactured from 304 Stainless Steel, the Hellvape Dead Rabbit RDA is a pretty cool looking RDA! I do like the engraved Dead Rabbit logo on the front of the top cap, although I know that it won’t be to some people’s tastes! The top of the top cap is knurled, making it easier to remove and to adjust the airflow.

The Dead Rabbit RDA is available in a wide variety of different colour finishes, and each one comes with an 810 wide bore resin drip tip that will have a unique design. This is totally random however, so you can’t specify which colour or design you would like. If the drip tip you get isn’t to your taste, you can switch it out for another 810 threaded tip, or make use of the supplied 510 drip tip adaptor.

With the Dead Rabbit RDA being a 24mm width RDA, it fits onto the top of most of the popular mechanical tube mods on the market today with no overhang present, and a bottom feeding pin is included should you wish to use the Dead Rabbit RDA with your favourite squonker.

Overall, I feel that the Dead Rabbit RDA is a great looking RDA that has been machined very well indeed, with no sharp edges or machine burrs present. It’s surprisingly light in hand too, I expected it to be heavier when I first saw it in the box!

Building the Dead Rabbit RDA

A large and uniquely designed four post build deck supporting both single and dual coil builds is found on the Dead Rabbit RDA, with one half of the posts being gold plated and the other half are silver. You have the option of using flat head or hex screws with the large post holes, and the coil leads are simply mounted on top. There’s plenty of space for large coil builds, and the post screws clamp the leads down tightly.

The juice well has a depth of around 5mm, which isn’t particularly large especially when you have your wicks trailing down into it. The airflow is mounted at the top however, ideal for squonking, so you would have to go some to get it to leak!

Airflow

A top side diagonal airflow system is used on the Dead Rabbit RDA, which focuses on flavour and minimizes leaking. Two large cyclops airflow slots are located on either side of the top cap, with the internal top cap angling the airflow downwards to your coils.

Knurling on the top cap means the airflow adjustment is buttery smooth, and you can finely adjust the airflow to your liking. If you wish to use a single coil build, you can shut one side of the airflow off accordingly.

Performance

The Dead Rabbit RDA is an RDA that is designed to deliver great flavour, and it does an excellent job of doing so! It really excels with low resistance builds, providing a very warm and tasty vape, I’ve been using a 0.2ohm fused clapton dual coil build with superb results!

Given the size of the cyclops airflow slots, I expected the Dead Rabbit RDA to be a real cloud machine. It does provide a very cloudy vape, but not as cloudy as I had expected it to be. It even feels slightly restricted with both the airflow slots wide open!

As a bonus, the Dead Rabbit RDA comes with a squonking pin which is quick and easy to install so that you can use the Dead Rabbit RDA with a squonker. It performs very well on a squonking mod, I had no issues with juice feeding up to the deck!

Conclusion

I found it hard to find any negatives with the Dead Rabbit RDA, it’s simply a well designed, great performing RDA available at a very attractive price point. The performance I get from it has been nothing short of superb, with a very enjoyable and flavoursome vape!

If you are in the market for a new, bottom feed compatible RDA then I would highly recommend having a look at the Dead Rabbit RDA. I think this is a real steal for the price!

SMOANT NABOO Review: Easily One of 2018’s #1 Vape Mod Kits

The SMOANT NABOO kit is a mod and a mesh coil sub ohm tank, and in true SMOANT fashion, it is styled impeccably.

The kit showed up on my doorstep a couple of weeks ago, and since then I’ve been using it alongside a bunch of other mods and tanks that I’m in the process of testing.

Seriously, I’m drowning in vape gear; if any of you are interested in doing reviews for VapeBeat, drop me a line on Facebook!

OK, back to the review: the mod itself is fairly portable, very well priced, and has a really nice look and feel to it – providing you like that rainbow finish that is so popular right now.

Is it legit? Is it better than GeekVape NOVA or the Vaporesso POLAR kit? Read on to find out.

SMOANT NABOO Review

SMOANT NABOOFocus On www.urvapin.com For More Vape Start Kit.

Design

The mod is designed to be nice and portable; it sits pretty nicely in the hand and the front of it is dominated by a massive 2.4in TFT panel. It looks freakin’ brilliant and kind of reminds me of the POLAR mod.

Dimensions are as follows: 91 x 48 x 31mm, and it feels nice and light in the hand, even with two batteries inside it.

The main event is obviously the display, however, which more or less takes over the entire front of the mod.

SMOANT NABOO

The Button Below The Fire Key Reveals The Hidden Power Rocker

It’s not a touchscreen mod though; rather, it utilizes a pair of capacitive buttons that are hidden from view and only pop into existence once you tap the smaller button below the fire key.

Once this key is tapped, it reveals the power rocker, where you can augment the power or temperature. It also doubles as navigation for the mod’s menus and settings.

It’s a really cool feature too, because when the buttons aren’t active, the power and controls are effectively locked, so they can’t change while in your pocket.

SMOANT NABOO

Nice N’ Portable

The entire back panel slips off easily enough, and inside you’ll find a snug compartment for two 18650 cells.

The panel is held in place by magnets and, once installed sits completely flush to the mod, and makes it impossible to see any breaks in the design. So far, so good.

Overall, the mod feels very sturdy and well put together. The SMOANT NABOO is available in four color options:

  • Rainbow
  • Red
  • Stainless Steel
  • Black

As you can see in the image, my review unit is the rainbow number. Looking at the other color options, I think, given a choice, I would normally go for either the red or the black model. Still, the rainbow one does look pretty cool.

SMOANT NABOO Specifications

As you can see from the full specifications list below, the SMOANT NABOO features pretty much everything you’d expect from a mode vape mod.

SMOANT NABOO

Sexy Back Panel

You have TC, curve modes, wattage, and pretty much everything else in between.

  • Dimensions: 48mm(L) X 31mm(W) X91mm(H)
  • Takes 2X 18650 battery
  • Display: 2.4 inch TFT color screen
  • Touch Button
  • Lock/Unlock function
  • Center 510 connector
  • Three different UI modes (Dial mode/ Classic mode/ Music mode) available to choose
  • Output range: 1 – 225 W
  • Output modes: VW (Min, Normal, Max)/ VW Curves / Temp (Ni, Ti, SS) / TCR / TC Curves
  • Resistance range: 0.1 – 2.0 Ohm for TC mode / TCR mode / TC Curves 0.1-3.0 Ohm for VW / VW Curves
  • Balance charging
  • Firmware upgradeable (pls download it at http://smoant.com/download/smoant-firmware.rar)
  • Reverse protection/ Over-heating protection/ Low voltage protection/ Overload/Short-circuit protection/ Over-time protection
  • Color: Black, red, Stainless Steel and Rainbow

SMOANT NABOO Performance

SMOANT NABOO

Fully Assembled

The NABOO mod runs SMOANT’s updated ANT225 chipset, and this brings with it a bunch of cool features.

The most notable of which are as follows:

  • Low Voltage Protection
  • Reverse Protection
  • Over Current Protection
  • Over Heating Protection

Beyond this, you’re getting one of the fastest firing mods in the game; the NABOO will fire within 0.0015 seconds. That’s quick, even by today’s standards.

I predominantly used the mod in wattage mode, and here it excelled. It’s easily a match for the VooPoo DRAG with respect to power delivery, and I think it actually looks better too.

TC mode is decent as well, not the best but it is certainly accurate enough to satisfy most temperature control vapers, providing you’re not coming from a DNA or YiHi mod.

Throughout the past two weeks that I’ve been using this mod, I’ve constantly been looking for holes in its performance, things it doesn’t do well. But I couldn’t find any – it just works really, really well.

For a mid-range mod, it is definitely up in the top 1% of vape mods on the market right now. It performs brilliantly with all styles of tanks and is perfectly happy rocking along at 150W or 20W.

No complaints from me, basically.

How’s The Battery Life?

SMOANT NABOO

Cat Amongst The Pidgeons

Decent. You got two 18650 cells to play with, and this should deliver a solid day’s worth of vaping, providing you’re not using rubbish batteries or vaping solidly at 150W.

I tended to run the NABOO in and around 55-65W and this got me pretty consistent, all-day battery life. Whack a Kayfun on it and run it at 18W and you’re looking at 2-3 days of vaping.

I was worried the large display would soak up a lot of precious battery power, but this doesn’t seem to be the case. The NABOO is as good as the GeekVape NOVA with respect to battery life, and that mod has a tiny display.

How To Change The SMOANT NABOO’s Display

You know that massive, 2.4in TFT display? Well, you can change the screensaver to anything you like, just like you could on phones in the 90s.

To do this, you need to update the firmware (do that by using this link). I didn’t bother to be honest, as it’s not something I tend to do even on my phones.

But if you like this sort of thing, SMOANT’s got you covered.

SMOANT NABOO

The Three Display UX Options

The NABOO also rocks a few UX designs too: you have Classic Mode, Dial Mode, and a new option called Music Mode.

They’re all relatively attractive and display all the pertinent information.

I kept mine on the classic mode, as I like the way the fonts and numbers look. But the music mode does look very good too.

SMOANT Nebulizer Mesh Tank Review

Ah mesh coil tanks, they’re everywhere these days. With this in mind, it’s no surprise that SMOANT decided to include on inside the NABOO kit.

SMOANT NABOO

The Nebulizer Tank

And while the SMOANT Nebulizer isn’t going to give the FreeMax Mesh Pro any trouble, it is certainly a very solid mesh kit-tank.

The flavor is decent enough, a 7/10 or thereabouts, and the mech coils wick quickly. Very quickly, actually. You prime it and then, 60 seconds later, you’re vaping.

Coil head performance is also very good; you’re looking at around 10-14 days per coil, which is very good.

The tank is a handsome chap too, perfectly suited for sitting atop the NABOO mod.

SMOANT NABOO

Disassembled

I do like it, for a kit tank, and it does work really well. I just wouldn’t go and rave about it as a standalone setup, if you get me?

There are some truly great mesh coil tanks around right now, and while the SMOANT Nebulizer is decent, it’s not in the top 10 options right now. But then that niche of tanks is hugely competitive anyway. For a kit tank, though, it is very good.

It’s way better than the POLAR’s, for instance. Ditto Innokin’s Cascade kit.

Bottomline? This mod and tank combo is VERY impressive.

Easily of the best vape kits I’ve had the pleasure of testing in 2018.

Good work, SMOANT!

What I Liked

  • The Mod is Beautifully Designed
  • The Secret Power Rocker Keys
  • The Stunning 2.4in TFT display
  • It Fires In The Blink of Eye (0.0015 seconds)
  • Variety of Vaping Modes (TC, Curve, Bypass)
  • Tons of Safety Features
  • Easy To Use

Things To Keep In Mind

  • The Display is a Finger Print Magnet
