The TFV8 Cloud Beast comes in the usual SMOK black cardboard box, but this time, instead of the usual white and grey paper sleeve, the Chinese company went for a volcano background, which they also mention in the metaphoric description of the new tank: “The ancient volcano, Mount Vesuvius, is a cloud beast entrenched into the earth. Although calm, the 2,000 foot diameter crater fills with steam; a formidable, gasping lion. Once awakened, she erupts lava into an ominous sky, and the earth trembles with her great power. Now, SMOK brings you this magnificent power, completely changing your vaping experience.
So is the SMOK TFV8 worth your money? If you’re into high-wattage vaping and cloud chasing, it is probably the best tank you can buy. But while I can respect and appreciate its power and vapor production capabilities, I also find it overwhelming. As I mentioned before, I usually vape in the 60W – 80W range, so having to go over 100W just to get a satisfying experience takes me out of my comfort zone. Also, its large size makes it harder to carry around, and the high vapor consumption makes using it pretty expensive for me, because I don’t mix my own juice. I had fun using it, and will probably take it out every once in a while just to impress my friends, but it’s just not something I would use on a daily basis
