SMOK TFV16, 9 ml and Mesh Fiesta!
SMOK TFV16 announces the next trend of factory coils. Smok has always been one of the most avant garde brands of the vape. It has popularized many design and approaches, especially in the coils. Most of its flagship atomizers are huge successes. The TFV4, then the TFV8 and its many variants. Although it was good, the TF12 Prince is also well made. A few months ago, Smok released the Morph 219 kit with Tank 2019.
The features of the SMOK TFV16
We thought it was finally the successor and we were rather disappointed. The Tank 2019 was not much and we hope that the SMOK TFV16 promises beautiful things. And we are not disappointed, because it is the capacity that is obvious. The tank arrives with a 9ml Bubble glass. To my knowledge, I do not know Tank sub-ohm, with factory coil, which has 9 ml in native. You have the Brunhilde with 8 ml, but it’s an RTA.
It is a very big tank since its basic diameter is 32 mm. The filling of the juice is done from the top with the washer that will slide. You also have a small lock button for filling. A standard in many tanks, but it’s an improvement from the TFV8. The airflow is from the bottom. And unlike previous models, the base of the SMOK TFV16 is raised which provides space for the airflow.
If you combine these features, a large capacity and considerable airflow, then we already know that the SMOK TFV16 is for very large clouds. And it is very airy even with an Airflow that is half closed. Although it can be said that it is a brand new Tank, this atomizer proves that Smok is an aerial specialist. Personaly, i think with his expertise on coils, I think he can do a very good thing by inventing a MTL atomizer worthy of the name. Of course, there are pods, but it’s not the same thing.
The setup of coil is done by an ingenious pusher system. Ingenious is a big word, because an easy installation of coil on a Smok tank, it is quite relative. You also have a large selection of colors with blue, red, matte black, stainless steel and rainbow. But the big news is the coils.
The coils of SMOK TFV16
Smok gave the tempo in terms of coil trends. He lanched trends of the double, the triple and even the quadruple coils in pre-made coil. Since mid-2018, it is the Mesh coil that is coming back in force. And given the face of the SMOK TFV16, we can say that the Mesh will replace gradually, but definitely the classic cotton. Mesh has the advantage of giving more flavor, but it takes a lot more power to use it.
The coil of the SMOK TFV16 uses the NiChrome 80 and their structure is cell-shaped. This allows to heat very quickly, but most importantly, it will be a suction pump for juice. So if you are thrifty on juice, then the TFV16 is clearly not for you. It is an ogre who will swallow liters of juice. Just the Mesh strength is enough for a considerable consumption of liquid. Smok has been riding the Mesh trend for quite some time and in fact, he already offers Mesh coils for the TFV8 Baby.
80 watts minimum for the TFV16, dude!
For these new coils, the recommended starting power is 80 watts, so we let you imagine the box that will take with. And for pre-installed coil, Smok recommends a range around 120 watts. Little vapers (like me), go your way. Knowing Smok, I’m sure he’ll swing a Box to make a complete kit with the TFV16. But it’s fine. I hope this box will be more reliable, because even if Smok is a champion in the clearomizers, his mods have a lot of problems. In fact, you’re lucky if a Smok mod still work after 5 or 6 months.
Thus, the SMOK TFV16 is supplied with 2 coils. The first, which is pre-installed, is 0.17 ohm, then we have a Double Mesh coil at 0.12 ohm. And finally, you also have a third type of coil, which is not provided, in triple Mesh at 0.15 ohm. This gives us two indications. That it’s a Tank to make big clouds and that the Sub Ohm is now the niche of Smok.
Because to propose a pre-made coil of 0,12 ohm which is nevertheless a very low value, it is necessary to go there. Big Cloud tanks are on the rise. Because in the days following the coming of the TFV16, Uwell give us the Valyrian 2 who are also using mesh coils and the tank is also for high power vaping.
What to expect from the SMOK TFV16?
When you see the face of coils, you think they do not make the same mistake as the X-Baby which was ultra-air, but had no flavor. I will always remember this purchase. I have not had the SMOK TFV16 on hand, but I tested it with other vapers. And confirmation, it is very airy, but the flavors are present. But it’s a pretty dense and saturated flavor that will not please everyone.
Then, this is the first variant and if the SMOK TFV16 works, we will have a whole slew of variants with the Minis and others who will embark. We can also expect a range of coil that will come out later.
The choice of the brand with the SMOK TFV16 seems strange to me. I have already repeated, 2019 is the year of the MTL. And even if Smok thinks Mesh’s time has come, I do not understand the idea of launching a pretty aerial atomizer. It is certainly better than the TF12 Prince. But the flavor is not everything in the vape. The price is quite correct since it is found from 30 to 40 dollars on Chinese sites.
