I will look at the tank first – yet again the crazy Smok naming conventions are out in force and this is a Baby V2 version of the TFV8 tank.

tfv8 baby v2 posterI am not sure if previous TFV8 coils are compatible as a new range of Baby V2 coils have been released for this tank.tfv8 baby v2 components

The coils available come in 3 different colours so you can match them to your tank. You get the Baby V2 A1 and A2 heads in the kit.

  • A1 Baby V2 – single mesh coil 0.17ohm rated 90-140W
  • A2 Baby V2 – dual coil mesh head 0.2ohm rated 50-80W
  • A3 Baby V2 – triple mesh coil 0.15ohm rated 60-100W.

tfv8 baby v2 specsActually I quite like the look of this latest Smok offering – apart from the horrible tank naming conventions – all makes for more confusion when trying to buy replacement coils!

Will you be buying the Smok Species Kit? Let me know your thoughts in the comments below!

My name is Michelle - I am 46 and an engineer and Technical Author by trade. I started vaping many years ago in the days of Tornado tanks, Ego batteries and Variable Voltage. My journey in vaping began again a few years ago and have started to move up in the shiny shiny gadget department and love vaping! I have finally stopped smoking as of June 2019 and that is all thanks to vaping! 20mg Nicotine Salts are my hero! Oh and I am partial to a nice pod mod!


  1. hello guys, have you had the chance to check if any coils from the family are compatible between stick 9 and species tank? in smok website there is a list of coils called family baby v2 and there are 2 that say “custom for stick 9” but the others nothing in the same bunch of coils. And as you said Michelle, more coils more confusion, I loved the crossover compatibility between tanks with coils tfv8 and geekvape x1 (my favorite) and they work everywhere, obs damo, vaporesso revenger, geekvape tanks, a lot of tanks.

    hopefully there is something similar with this new family of coils at least among smok products, like mini usb 🙂


  2. Yes, mines being shipped as we speak. I got mine cheap from the Smok store as ive got a free voucher and shipping during August is free. There is no cross compatibility with the new tank/coils – i asked Smok. I suspect the tank on its own will be available at some point. I see why the stand alone coils as many would just buy the v2 coils for older tanks. This way you have to buy the tank. I’m a little surprised no 20700 battery option as more new 20xxx 21xxx batteries are being released. Alien mk2 thoughts?

    • Hiya Gary

      Yeh more tank and coil types to get confused with – I do wish Smok would name them better!
      As for the mod – you would think new mods would have compatibility for 20700/21700 batteries now wouldn’t you as the norm!
      Looks a lovely mod and I am a bit of a cynic when it comes to Smok but I absolutely loved the X-Priv and X-Priv Baby so I know they can knock out a brilliant kit when they want to – I really hope the Species is another winner!
      Hope you enjoy using it!
