What Makes the Perfect Alien Tank?

Before we can start throwing names out, we first have to talk about what makes a great tank in the first place. For most people, the most important aspects of a tank are the capacity, airflow controls, and the overall design. All of these elements contribute to the performance of the tank whether you’re using it with the Alien or any of your other devices. For a SMOK Alien tank, you will want a tank that offers plenty of liquid capacity because you are going to be going through quite a lot of e-juice at your high wattage settings. Plus, it’s just more convenient to have a larger capacity in the first place.

You will also want to be sure that you have multiple adjustable airflow holes. Typically these are located at the bottom so that the air is drawn upward as you vape. This has become pretty standard, but you will want to research reviews on the airflow mechanisms to see how easy they are to set and use. Finally, the design of the build deck or the replacement coils is an important factor if you want convenience and high performance.

Best Vape Tanks for the SMOK AlienSMOK TFV8 X-Baby Sub Ohm Tank

Now that we’ve covered the basics, we can explore some of the best tanks we’ve found to pair with this monstrous device. Obviously, SMOK made an informed decision when they paired the Alien with their TFV8 Baby Beast tank in the starter kit. This is, indeed, one of the best performing tanks all around, so you won’t be disappointed. However, there is the issue of capacity, and if you think the Baby Beast is a little too small, we’d highly recommend the TFV12 Prince that offers significantly more liquid space and more advanced coils.

Other options we like include the Aspire Cleito, which is both stylish and comes with some great personalization features to make it suit your needs. There is also a Maxi-watt version that is designed to ramp up your power a bit more and take advantage of the Alien’s huge range. There are so many great sub-ohm tanks out there today; it’s hard to just pick one. The Alien performs well straight out of the box, but if you want something bigger, VaporFi has it all.
