    I am running the Baby Beast on a Alien Mod. I have tried all the coils, even the HW2 from Eleaf. I primed the coils and let them sit for about 20m I went through the break in starting out at 30w slowly bringing up the watts. But the flavor is missing. No burnt taste, taste like nothing really. I brought it up to 80w, minimal flavor.

    I am done messing with it. Any recommendations for a sub Ohm tank that is good on flavor?

    I don't care to build anymore, been there done that and have no interest in it.

    Concentrate your search on tanks that have stainless steel coil heads available.
    Stainless will give you much MUCH better flavor than Kanthal. (or imo most anything else)

    I suggest you try a Crown 3. Awesome tank and both of it's available coil heads are stainless.

    As soon as you taste the C3, yer "beast" will go straight in "the drawer".

    Also, even though the beast ain't so hot... you should still be sure you're using good juice.

    Cool, didn't know that. SS can then be used in Baby Beasts rta decks, yes?

    That is almost word for word the answer I was about to write. I would just reiterate that once you fill up the crown 3 with your favorite juice, you may never vape another tank ever again. I'm even getting a little frustrated with my useless collection of tanks and drippers, and am probably going to buy a couple more C3 tanks just to have different flavors ready, since everything else tastes like unflavored straight vg by comparison.

    No, but they work well in tc mode too. The advantage for builders is that you can safely dry burn SS wire, where you shouldn't with nickle or titanium. The advantage for everyone is FLAVOR. Serious flavor. Once I tried SS316L the Kanthal tastes lick licking a sign post, metallic and muted by comparison.

    Try wotofo serpent SMM if you do not have flavor with this one something is wrong, premade coils will practically fall into place.

    I get a lot of flavor from all my Beast tanks, from Baby to Big Baby to Cloud Beast to Cloud Beast King. No complaints here! I have a Crown 3 (which I like) but I still love my Beast tanks.

    I'll be getting some SS clapton wire from Lightning Vapes, most likely. Should be interesting to compare with kanthal.

    I'm using the big baby beast with the rba head. It comes with claptons pre installed. Performs great. I just dry burn and rewick when dirty. Can be re used for a long time without rebuilding and blows the regular coil heads away. And for $10 each it's cheaper than disposable heads in the end. Also, a spare can be swapped out in a minute. Just a thought.

    Didn't want to start a new thread for this. Can the old TFV4 coils be used in the Baby Beat tank? Asking for a friend.

    First of all I'm sorry your not getting flavour from baby beast, I love mine!

    & @rchmx no the tfv4 coils can't be used in baby beast tank. Can use baby beast coils in big baby but tfv4 coils won't fit.
    Also baby beast coils can't be used in cloud beast or cloud beast king

    I just looked at the C3 and it seems it doesn't have a rebuildable deck. Is that correct?

    I have a Big baby beast myself. I find the X4 coils have more flavour production and its a ton of flavour. Another thing it could be is your juice. If your juice is high in VG it will have a weaker flavour. You could always add a flavour doubler and see if that works? Personally I'm one of those people who likes to try everything first before buying a new mod.

    I've found that all of the TFV8s depend on which coil you're using to provide good flavor. For the baby, the X4 and M2 are the best by Smok, IMO. However, there's a company called Medusa that makes a Stapled Clapton coil for it that tops anything Smoktech has put out (link).

    That said, I think the Crown 3 with the 0.25-ohm coils is where it's at right now for flavor.

    The wife and I got Crown 3 tanks a week ago and they seem okay. I still prefer the Vaporesso Estoc Mega (cotton and Clapton coil heads) over the C3. That with comparing them side by side with the same juice. However the Estoc runs at about 45 watts.

    One thing with the C3 SS coils, ours will spit tiny drops of juice on the first hit or two if it hasn't been used in a couple hours. That's not a great thing to look forward to in the morning.

    I know what you are talking about. It's pretty good about spitback except for that first draw. If you give it a three-second burn while blowing through the airflow holes (not doing so can burn the cotton), you won't get that initial juice spittle in your mouth.

    It's a question of fast wicking vs. lack of spitback. You can't have both, and personally I'd prefer the former, but that technique has saved me from drinking the juice instead of vaping it.

    That's all it fits, I guess the NRG and maybe one other tank whose coils work in the TFV8 would probably take it, but it was clearly made for the L'il Baby Beast. The box makes that more than clear:

    [​IMG]
    No offense meant to Vaporesso. I've only used their ceramic Atlantis/Triton-fitting coils before and I liked them a lot once they got nice and saturated, but I doubt a company that only makes pre-made coils and this one aftermarket atomizer could survive on purchases that came only from NRG tank users. You've probably have to produce something for Aspire, Kanger, or Smoktech to make enough money off of sales of an aftermarket coil.

    While I'm here, I can't stand the flavor coming through my Baby Beast. I'm using the Q2 coil .4 - just can't deal with it. My mistake, but I put a sweet juice in it this time, "Butte Rum Savers" from Zeus. It is one of my favorites. But the previous ejuice wasn't nearly as sweet as this and the flavor felt like I was sucking through 10 cotton balls. It's black, only used it twice and it's going on the trade forum as soon as I get a 3rd rig up and running.

    Oh! And I have 10 boxes of coils for it. So sad.

    Nope, stainless works for either wattage or TC as long as your mod supports TC for stainless. Of course most do.
