    Did a swap for one of these today Smok Veneno kit. The person that purchased it for his wife said she did not like it.

    Never even tried to use it. (?)

    OK I thought I would try it. Not a great fan of Smok since the Procolour. This to me is just another version of the Procolour.

    In the box:
    1 mod
    1 TVF 8 Baby Light Edition Tank
    1 V8 Baby - Q2 0.4 ohm Duel Coil pre installed
    1 V8 Baby - T8 0.15 ohm Octuple Coil
    6 Pairs Colour Sealing 0 rings
    1 Replacement Glass Tube
    1 Usb Cable
    1User Manual

    I did not bother with the TFV 8 Baby Tank, as I prefer my own builds.
    Putting my Obs Engine RBA on it I gave it a try.

    First impressions a very average Tc / W mod. Simple to use for experienced vapers. As a starter kit for novice users I would give it 3&1/2 stars.

    Battery usage using my favourite browns it's consumption without the fancy flashing lights was not bad. 245 puffs on a 0.23 ohm juggernauts twin coil build.

    As a spare mod yes it will do.
    The feature I dislike is the battery door. Very flimsy lock and if used on a daily basis will wear out fast as did the Procolour after 2 months and I had to use a rubber band to keep it shut.

    Just an additional con. It's no surprise that Smok give you so many sealing rings the TVF 8 Big Baby Tank leaks like a seive. Bad enough their factory coils are juice guzzlers if you don't DIY juice it will cost you a small fortune in juice, added to the tank's leakage issues no thank you.

    The TFV8 Big Baby tank in several editions has been around for a while now. I have just about tried every one as once I was a fan of Smok. Alas The TFV8 Big Baby Tank is a lemon.

    This review is is my humble opinion only and I have no doubt some may disagree.

    Think I'd rather the new Geek Vape Aegis Legend, it's bullet proof and runs 2 x 18650's. Vapoureyes sells just the mod with no tank for $80 as do other Aussie vendors, much better quality than a Smok I would suggest not to mention so much better looking.
    Waterproof, shockproof, dustproof and it uses the advanced AS chipset that powers up to 200 watt with coloured display screen, fast accurate and powerful...!

    If I was to buy one definitely this one. I didn't buy the Smok.

    @emu Yes I got my Geek Vape Aegis Legend this one I did buy and yes it is far superior to the Smok discussed earlier. I also own the original Geek Vape Aegis, now I have its improved big brother. I did not think much of the tank it came with and did not even bother with it, as if it is not a RBA or RTA I do not want to know about it. Buying pre wicked factory coils for any tank I decline to do now. None that I know use Rayon wick material and I am hooked on Rayon wicks.

    The Geek Vape Aegis Legend will definitely replace the original Geek vape Aegis and having married it to my OBS engine I am in vape heaven. Victory Vapes also sent me two rolls of SS Juggernauht wire and I will be making some of my favourite Jugger coils myself now. As to the Smok it will be advertised on FB. The mod I have used for three days the tank it came with is brand new as are the coils it came with.

    Interesting observation also that the Legend is a lighter mod that the original Aegis and rides better in my vape belt pouch.

    Wait till you try nic salt's, it'll knock ya socks off as far as enjoying nicotine again.
    3 puffs of 15mg on dual coils sends ya into orbit, unflavoured tastes so much better with the salt's, I have never enjoyed vaping so much, nicotine is a wonderful drug when you take it in a way that is effective and safe.

    I will stay with what I am comfortable with until Mixology can source them.

    The nic rush would give you a heart attack anyway so probably better for you to stick to the harsh ineffective stuff.

    Lol I wouldn't vape 15mg sub ohm in a pink fit. 6mg is more than enough ty. It's effective enough me and others.

    15mg is perfect at 50 watts dual coils, don't feel a thing, just like inhaling air.
    That is until 7 seconds later when the nic hits ya brain and it lasts a long time (the hit) I'm amazed it's legal :p

    Did a comparison on the Smok Skyhook and the Geek Vape Aegis Legend. Identical builds. Using Ss Juggernauts wire, same juice. Same Tc settings.
    The Aegis wins hands down. Much smoother and better vape.
