3 out of the 5 coils were no good After just a few days of use it starts to get a burnt taste already
I took a chance on these coils because they were cheap but you get what you pay for. 3 out of the 5 coils were no good right out of the box and nothing I did would make them work. And the 2 that "worked" didn't work for very long. I got roughly a week each out of the 2 coils that "worked" when vaping 10ml of juice a day at 65 watts. With the real SMOK Mesh coils I can easily get close to 3 weeks out of a single coil vaping 10ml a day at 70-75 watts. But the real SMOK coils are pretty expensive but you know they will work properly and have good longevity. My favorite coil on Fasttech for my NRG, V8 Big Baby and V8 Baby Beast Tanks is this coil https://www.fasttech.com/p/9661963. I like them because they are pretty cheap and they last me close to if not just over 4 weeks per coil when vaping 10-12ml a day at 70 watts. But be warned that the coil description is wrong when it says it's the T12 (6 holes) because it's actually the T8 (4 holes) that is sent. But the T8 coil (whether from Fasttech or SMOK)is my favorite coil because it has a good balance of great taste and solid vapor production with fantastic longevity and a decent price (for the LEGIT SMOK ones). P.S. Any coil that fits the NRG tank will fit the V8 Baby Beast and V8 Big Baby tanks and vice versa. So the NRG GT coils will also fit the V8 Baby Beast and V8 Big Baby tanks as well.

- Great Colors (really loving the frosted white tube) - Cheap - Circumference wise it fits my 3 Big Baby tanks - Appears to be good quality glass
CONS
- Not actually tinted glass but just a color film wrapped around the glass - My purple colored tank arrived with the film peeling off -3 of the 8 glass tubes are 1 or 2 millimeters too short for the Big Baby tank and MAY cause leaking since it leaves the bottom o-ring slightly exposed
For the price of $4 for 8 replacements glass tubes you can't really complain too much since you're only paying 50 cents per tube. But I wish all 8 tubes arrived in good condition and were actually the correct length to fit my Big Baby tanks. I will say that the fit of the circumference of all 8 tubes fit nicely, but the length on 3 of the 8 tubes are too short and leave the bottom o-ring exposed just a little bit that it MAY cause leaking. I uploaded a picture of one of the tubes that is too short to show you what I'm talking about. All in all, these glass tubes are a great value for the price (10 stars) but the build quality (6 stars) could be much better.

Good flavor but not that much better than my T8 or Mesh coils.
CONS
Super tight airflow. Max watts is 35 so the vapor is cold. Even in Temperature Control mode at the max 600 degree Fahrenheit the vapor is still cold. Don't last long in my experience.
I was really hoping to like these ceramic coils based on most of the reviews I've read here and on other sites saying how great they were. But I'm sadly disappointed with how these ceramic coils perform. The one and only good thing about these coils is that the flavor is pretty good but not that much better than my two favorite coils -- the T8 and Mesh coils. Also, depending on the particular flavor of my juices these coils would make some of my juices too sweet for my liking compared to my T8 and Mesh coils. Now there are a lot of cons with these ceramic coils that make me dislike them a lot. The main con is that the airflow is super, super tight to the point of it being irritating because I'd have to take 6-7 second draws to feel like I got a good puff when normally with my T8 or Mesh coils I can get a fantastic puff by doing 3-4 second draws. Also the vapor production isn't that good with these ceramic coils. The vapor is nowhere near as thick and dense as my T8 and Mesh coils. Another con is that the max wattage for these coils is 35 so if you like a slightly warm to really warm vape, you will not get that from these ceramic coils. In fact, the vapor is quite cold since you can only vape these at low wattage. And even in TC mode at the max 600 degree Fahrenheit the vape is still cold. Another thing I'm disappointed about with these coils is that a lot of reviews say these ceramic coils last much longer than regular coils but these ceramics have only lasted me between 10-12 days vaping 10ml of juice a day at 35 watts which is much shorter than my T8 and Mesh coils. With my T8 and Mesh coils vaping 10ml of juice a day at 60-70 watts those will last me close to 3 weeks. I will definitely not be buying these ceramic coils again since you can get better coils for a better price per coil value anyway. But that's just my opinion of these coils.

Not T12 coils (6 holes) as advertised. These are T8 coils (4 holes). Wrong size. Too short. Doesn't make contact with the 510 pin making these coils useless.
I ordered these thinking they were T12 coils (6 holes) because that's what the description said they were, but what was sent to me were T8 coils (4 holes). I've been going back and forth with customer service for a few days now but they keep telling me that the coils they sent me are the correct T12's even after I showed them other sku's that show the T12 has 6 holes and showing them Smok's own pictures and descriptions of their coils since these are replacements for Smok coils. Now they are telling me that these coils are for the TFV12 Prince tanks even though their own product description says it's for the TFV8 Baby Beast tank. I wouldn't be as upset as I am now after receiving the wrong coils from what I ordered if I could still use them in either my V8 Baby Beast tank or NRG tank. But I can't because they are the wrong size and are too short by a couple millimeters so the coil doesn't make contact with the 510 pin therefore not completing the electrical circuit so the coil can't fire. I'm not asking for much. I either want a refund for the wrong coils they sent me or let me pick another pack of coils that will fit my tank at no charge. Pretty simple, wouldn't you say? Fasttech messed up, how hard is it to rectify the problem?
