Build Quality and Design of SMOK TFV16 Tank

The SMOK TFV16 Tank combining power, charm and the design of the very popular SMOK TFV series will impress you with its new bright spots. The TFV16 made of stainless steel measures at 32 X 64.5mm and weighs 94 grams is solid and durable, which weighs more than almost any pod system on the market. The upgraded bulb pyrex glass tube featuring the 9ml largest juice capacity to ensure sustaining vape enjoyment without adding the e-liquid frequently. Compared to its predecessor the SMOK TFV12 Prince, the TFV16 is shorter, a little wider and only 3.5g heavier.

The SMOK TFV16 feels smooth and hefty. The cap opening and the glass untwisting are extremely satisfying due to the decent tolerances, fit and finish. There are no machining marks or scuffs. The sealed top-fill feels durable and locks with a slight push. It allows a little bit of pressure to open, avoiding the accidental push of the button. The paint finish with brushed stainless steel effect is attractive. And you will get a sleeve style resin drip tip that cannot fit your regular 810 or 510 drip tips.

Improvements of SMOK TFV16 Tank

The SMOK TFV16 has greatly improved its e-liquid capacity, an increase of 50 percent and equipped with a new series of hard-hitting coils. The TFV16 Tank base is increased and higher than other tanks, which improves the upcoming airflow for huge vapor production and flavorful taste. The two symmetrical airflow slots have been widened with a dimension of 14mm by 2.6mm to help produce more vapor and richer flavor. If you don’t like the warmer hits, the airflow can be completely closed.

How To Fill the SMOK TFV16 Tank:

There are four coils currently available for the SMOK TFV16 Tank - TFV16 Mesh Coil, TFV16 Dual Mesh Coil, TFV16 Triple Mesh Coil, and TFV16 Conical Mesh Coil. Two of them are included in the box. The TFV16 Triple Mesh coil and the TFV16 Conical Mesh Coil are sold separately. They are massive, long-lasting coils that can generate an incredible amount of vapor. All of the TFV16 replacement coils feature a brand new Nickel-chrome mesh honeycomb structure providing the faster heating speed and larger coverage surface. The vape juice can be fully heated through the small and stable hexagon hole for more exquisite vaporization and pure flavor.

The 0.17ohm mesh coil (pre-installed) features the enlarged heating area and more stable heating elements for excellent flavor and pure taste. The 0.12ohm dual mesh coil with two mesh holes brings you the more massive cloud production and richer flavor.
