    I love my TFV 8 coils, however, I've been phasing them out of use and gone back to some of my older tanks that I know won't leak. I was getting really tired of getting TFV 8 coils that had the factory defect where one or more or the wires was sticking out around the base of the coil and causing it to leak. I found out how to "fix" the leak by tucking the coils back in or cutting them, but they would still leak. I would even get leaking from the bottom of the tank by the air flow holes where it seemed like juice would, for lack of a better word, condensate around the holes. I got so tired of my mod being covered in juice after 15 minutes of use that I have gone back to using my Kanger Sub Plus and Aspire Atlantis V2's. I love these tanks for the simple reason they don't leak at all, however, the air flow is very restricted and I could use a bit more.

    I quit buying the TFV 8 coils because I was tired of having to fix them. I tried reaching out to Smok and never got a reply and that was 7 months ago. I would love to go back to using them, but I don't want to order any coils if I have to fix them. So I was wondering if anyone knew if this manufacturing issue had been fixed to where the wires don't stick out anymore OR if someone could recommend a tank that didn't leak and had good air flow.

    I usually vape around 60-70W with 70VG juice. I prefer a cooler vape and am not looking to "chuck phat clouds", but rather I'd like a tank with great flavor production like the TFV 8 Quad coils.

    If you do know of a vendor that has "fixed" Smok coils, please let me know. Thanks ahead of time for suggestions or info.

    So at 60-70w, I assume you mean the TFV8 Baby Beast? Either way, I never had a problem with leaky coils. Q2, X4, and T8 in the Baby. T10 in the Cloud Beast. None were leakers.

    I've ran about 8 coils through my Baby Beast and have yet to have a leaky coil, not even a leak one time in my tank. X4, Q2 or T8. I really suggest trying another vendor on coils if you are having issues like that. They might have skimped out and bought knock off and resold you never know. I feel confident enough when I buy a Smok coil I know it's gonna perform, not leak and last me 7 days on a ADV scenario.

    My boyfriend had that leaky issue when he was using the cloud beast. He's since put that tank to the side.

    If you are talking about the baby beast, I haven't had any problem with leaking with those coils either. I'll second maybe going with a different vendor for the coils if this is the case!

    Neither my Tfv8, Baby or Big Baby Beast tanks have had leaking issues. Smok makes one of the few sub ohm tanks(coils) that DONT leak. My Uwell tanks do not leak either. (Se1, Crown V1,2 or 3).
