SMOK TFV12 Tank Comparison Versus the Eleaf 300 Atomizer Tank

If you’re in the market to purchase a new vaping tank, then we have a comparison of the SMOK TFV12 and the Eleaf 300 for you! We’ll start off with the visual aspects of both tanks and then move onto the more technical aspects later like the vapor production.

Visually the Eleaf 300 looks very much like its signature range of Melo tanks. They haven’t lost the style throughout the range of Melo tanks. The Eleaf 300 is 25mm wide, while the SMOK TFV12 is 28 mm wide, so a little wider across the tank. The SMOK TFV12 is again slightly taller than its counterpart the Eleaf 300. The Eleaf 300 is available in either black or stainless steel, while the SMOK TFV12 comes in black, gold, stainless steel, and an impressive 7-color rainbow option.

The SMOK TFV12 has a big 6 ml tank capacity, while the Eleaf 300 tank comes in slightly bigger at 6.5 ml. Either way, you won’t have to worry about tank capacity! Both tanks utilize a simple dual air flow system. The air flow is opened at the bottom of the tank and twists to open and close. The Eleaf 300 uses their slide top fill method. You just slide the top of the tank to one side and then slide it back and latch it closed. The SMOK TFV12 uses the swing style top fill. Both tanks are easy to fill, with no mess and no fuss.

When you put the T12 coil of the SMOK TFV12 alongside the Eleaf 300 coil, they’re both almost identical size wise. When you look at the internal coil design, the SMOK TFV12 has six individual coils arrayed around in a circle. The Eleaf 300 has six coils, but they are arranged as three dual vertical coils.

At 150 watts, the SMOK TFV12 is going to give you more vapor than the Eleaf 300, but the Eleaf will give you a touch more in the flavor department. At 200 watts, the SMOK TFV12 vapor is still higher, but it has a smoother pull than the Eleaf 300. When you crank them both up to 300 watts, the SMOK TFV12 is a much smoother option. Both tanks are at their limits at 300 watts with a very intense hit.

Price wise both tanks are a similar price, so ultimately the choice depends on your personal vaping style. The SMOK brand usually releases more coil options, even after the tank hits the market so that could also be a deciding factor.
