    Hello all, i just bought a "Smok Stick V8 Starter Kit" and im looking to build my own coils. The Smok Stick V8 description says it comes with an "TFV8 Big Baby tank" and im wondering if i can upgrade to an "SMOKTech TFV8 Baby Beast RBA Head" . or do i need to buy a whole new tank ? if that is the case then can i go with any 510 tank connection? thanks

    I honestly wouldn't recommend it. The smok v8 pen isn't compatible with that. Reason why it is limited on what it can do. I recommend buying a mod in order to do rba/rds/rta.

    thanks for your reply. so i cant do the RBA but is there any way i can still make my own coils for it? RDT or RTA i just dont want to keep ordering coils for it. Shipping takes so long to get here plus it going to start adding to the cost, they say a coil every week. Im new to vaping and did not know what kind of mod would be best for me. i kind of thought you can add coil building to any mod

    I understand. That's why I started building lol. The thing is the vape pen you have isn't regulated meaning: it's goes up to a certain amount of voltage. Ig you were to out in a single coil build reading as. 5 ohms. You might blow up (ish) because it would require more to ramp it up. Imo for best to start I would recommend tarot nano : 80w, goes up to 6amps. Has safety features that if it's too hot, vape too long, it would cut off so you don't get into any serious injury. That mod is regulated meaning you can adjust the wattage and the power of your coil builds.

    I see where you getting at and I wanted to build asap lol. But for unregulated devices you want to be becareful of. If you want to build start slow and small. Yes the tfv8 beast lines does have a rba deck but again you want to becareful when putting it in a unregulated mod (vape pen, your v8 pen) plus you need the equipment (look at coil masters kit), wires (kanthal is easy to start with), and a ohm reader to tell you of that. I used my tarot nano and or use any mod to build and read as a ohm reader.

    My favorite mod so far is Segelei Kaos Spectrum. 230 watts, 2 removable rechargable batteries and a usb port (in case you dont own a charger, which i recommend getting asap)
    That will handle the tank you have with the RBA and numerous others, such as Ijoy RDTA Combo. (which beats cloud beast) It is basically an RDA with a tank underneath.. so no dripping.. just tilt as you vape.

    Mine cost me $100 Canadian at my local shop.
    Advantage.. build anything you want. Remember though.. it isnt about power or resistance or wraps, its about building a coil to max performance. A 6 wrap coil will perform better than an 8 wrap *8 wraps tend to burn in the middle at higher power, faster than the 6* Which is important if you want Clouds Bro. lol

    DUDE! that looks prefect. sold out on 180 smoke, but thats okay because i just dropped about $200 on my MOD and oils, and im still waiting for them to get here so convincing the wife that i need to spend another $200 right now for a MOD, tank, and batteries will be outside the realm of possibility. so what about the charger? should i just get the one that comes with the batteries like this one for example or do i need to get a better one. i dont want to over charge or damage the battery by using a cheep charger. in the like above if you look that an option to upgrade your charger. what do you think?
