2018 was a breakout year for super sub ohm cloud chucking tanks. We're barely into 2019 but have some great cloud chuckers to boot. This year has had a stronger start than any year in recent history. We've seen all kinds of great tanks and devices released. As technology advances, our options are just getting better and better while the prices get lower.

TFV12-coilsIt's definitely a buyers market right now. You don't have to settle for lackluster devices. Brand loyalty is barely alive. If your previous favorite name brand is slacking off, there's a good chance one of their competitors has a better device. The market is so competitive right now, I wouldn't be surprised if these are not the best tanks by the end of the year. Who knows what will come out during the fall and winter months.

But if you want to get the best cloud chasing tank right now, these eight tanks are your best options. They'll have you chucking massive clouds without having to build your own coils.

HorizonTech Falcon King – $34.99

HorizonTech Falcon King tank


  • Tank Capacity: 6mL
  • Diameter: 26.2mm base (28mL bubble tank)
  • Custom designed proprietary drip tip
  • Fill: swivel top fill, single port
  • M1+ Mesh 0.16Ω (best at 75W)
  • M-Dual Mesh 0.38Ω (best at 80W)
  • Build Material: SS, resin and glass
  • Air Slots: dual bottom adjustable with stopper
  • Colors: chrome, matte black, black, rainbow, blue, SS, coffee, gunmetal, blackish green, purple

The Horizontech Falcon King is the tank to beat so far in 2019. What Horizon has accomplished with this tank is simply amazing. It improves on the original Falcon which was one of the best sub-ohm tanks of 2018.


Modern day cloud chasing is all about getting the biggest clouds without vaping at crazy high wattages. And that's exactly what the Falcon King excels at.

The clouds you will be able to chuck with this tank are nice and dense. You will easily be able to fog up a room. No doubt about it. When my wife is running her yapper, sometimes I have to white her out with some cloud cover. This tank works great for that.

With the bamboo fiber mesh coils, you'll actually get some serious flavor off this tank. Most cloud chasing tanks sacrifice flavor big time. But not this one. And the coils last longer than organic cotton mesh coils because bamboo fibers are more durable.


Hands down, this is my favorite cloud chasing tank so far in 2019. It holds 6mL of juice with the bubble glass, has darn good flavor, and gives off massive clouds. It's going to be a tough one to beat. It has everything I look for in a cloud chasing tank, so it'll be interesting to see who tops it and how. But for now, the Falcon King is the best the market has to offer.

If you're looking for another cloud chucker to add to your rotation, this is one you should consider buying. I bought mine with my own money and don't regret it one bit.

UWELL Crown 4  – $29.99

UWELL Crown 4 tank


  • Tank Capacity: 6mL
  • Diameter: 25.7mm base (28mm bubble glass)
  • Drip Tip: 510 (o-rings on drip tip)
  • Fill: threaded top fill, 4 ports
  • Dual SS904L Coil: 0.4Ω (60W – 70W)
  • Dual SS904L Coil: 0.2Ω (70W – 80W)
  • Build Material: SS and glass
  • Air Slots: triple bottom adjustable with stopper
  • Colors: black, blue, green, purple, rainbow, SS

UWELL has earned the respect of the vaping community with its legendary Crown tanks. They have never disappointed and I still use my Crown 2 to this very day (excellent flavor, smooth vapor). UWELL knocked it out of the park with the Crown 4.


One of the things the Crown series of tanks is most known for is the smooth air flow. The Crown 4 has that trademark airflow that I've only experienced on Crown tanks. It's super smooth.

This tank uses 904L stainless steel coils with organic cotton. You will get very thick, full clouds off of the SS coils that it comes with. The premium SS coils last longer than other materials and give off some pretty good flavor

My only complaint with this tank is that it doesn't come with mesh coils. But you can buy the 0.23ohm mesh coil separately. Other than that, this tank is pretty badass. It performs like a champ and chucks clouds like you wouldn't believe.


You can't go wrong with this tank. UWELL nailed it with the Crown 4.

If you are looking for a new mod as well, you can get the beautiful Crown 4 200W starter kit for $75. It's the best cloud chasing starter kit on the market and comes with the two SS coils and the 0.23ohm mesh coil. But if you aren't in the market for a mod, just pickup the tank and get to throwing some thick clouds.

FreeMax Mesh Pro – $27.95

FreeMax Mesh Pro


  • Tank Capacity: 6mL bubble glass
  • Diameter: 25mm base
  • Drip Tip: 810
  • Fill: sliding top fill, 1 port
  • Double Mesh 0.2Ω coil (60W – 90W)
  • Single Mesh 0.15Ω coil (40W – 70W)
  • Build Material: SS, resin, and glass
  • Air Slots: dual bottom adjustable with stopper
  • Colors: black, blue, green, pink, purple, orange, SS, metal edition colors, carbon fiber color

FreeMax is the company responsible for bringing the future to sub-ohm tanks: mesh coil heads, dual mesh coil heads, and triple mesh coil heads. Their coil heads are some of the best on the market and really sets their tanks apart.


Coils, coils, coils! These coils are freakin' awesome! You will get tons of flavor and a lout of cloudage to boot. The performance of the coils is exceptional.

My favorite coil is the triple mesh coil, but unfortunately it doesn't come with the tank. You'll have tack it on to your order. And that grinds my gears. The triple mesh coil is exceptional. The dual mesh coil is great. And the single mesh coil is good.

You'll get the best flavor and clouds off the triple. But the double and single will still be able to fog up a room, but not as densely as the triple.

The airflow is nice and smooth, but a little noisy on the single mesh coil.


If flavor is is more important than clouds to you but you still want impressive clouds, this is the tank for you. You won't be sacrificing much in the cloud department either. The clouds are big and full.

Don't forget to throw in a triple mesh coil in your order if you go with this tank. You will not regret it. It's one of the best coils on the market, period.

Vaporesso Cascade – $28.99

vaporesso cascade


  • Tank Capacity: 7mL
  • Diameter: 25mm base (27mm glass)
  • Drip Tip: 510
  • Fill: sliding top fill, 1 port
  • GTM 8 Quad Vertical 0.15Ω coil (80W – 200W)
  • GTM 2  0.14Ω coil (40W – 80W)
  • Build Material: SS and glass
  • Air Slots: triple bottom adjustable with stopper
  • Colors: black, blue, rainbow, SS, black and red, red and blue

The Vaporesso Cascade is a weird looking tank that holds a ton of vape juice. If you push this tank to it's max, you're going to be blowing some crazy clouds and need every drop of that vape juice.


So let's get down to business. With the GTM 8 quad vertical coil, you can vape all the way up to 200W. This tank is like a blast from the past when we had the wattage craze.

At 200W, you will blow huge clouds. There's more to life than blowing clouds, which is a realization I had by vaping at crazy wattages. It doesn't feel the best to be honest. But if you literally just want to blow monster clouds with no regard for comfort and pleasure, then have at it!

These coils are good, but it gets even better. This tank comes with a coil adapter that allows you to use the Baby Beast coil family. You'll also be able to use any coils that are compatible with the SMOK Baby Beast.


This is a quirky tank that has a lot to offer. You can vape it at 200W and blow your friends away. Or you can use the coil adapter to use a wide variety of different coils. The choice is yours.

If you do decide to crab this tank, be sure to give it a whiz at 200W so you can see what it feels like. Who knows, you might enjoy it!

SMOK TFV12 Prince  – $32.95

SMOK TFV12 Prince Tank


  • Tank Capacity: 5mL/8mL (glass extension)
  • Diameter: 25mm base (28mL widest section)
  • Fill: swivel top fill
  • T10 0.12Ω (60W – 120W)
  • X6 0.15Ω (50W – 120W)
  • Q4 0.4Ω (40W – 100W)
  • Build Material: SS & Glass
  • Air Slots: dual adjustable
  • Colors: pink, black, blue, gold, green, gunmetal, matte black, navy blue, purple, rainbow, red, SS, white

The SMOK TFV12 Prince is the former cloud champ of 2018. It managed to live up to the hype that the TFV12 Cloud Beast King wasn't able to fulfill. Even though we're in 2019, this is still a tank that would serve you well into the future.


So this is really where the Prince separates itself from the competition. Believe it or not, this tank can churn out massive clouds just like the TFV12 Cloud Beast King, but at less than half the wattage. The clouds you will get off the T10 coil head at 100W are just as big as the clouds off the Cloud Beast King at 250W. It's crazy and I'm not sure how SMOK accomplished this but it's a much welcomed innovation.

This had to happen. We can't keep vaping at higher and higher wattages to get bigger clouds. I think We've peaked in the 300W range. Nobody in their right mind would want to vape any higher than that. So SMOK has led the charge at innovating the coils within the range that most vapers like. I don't like the way 300W vapor feels. It's uncomfortable and when my lip touches the tank it feels like I burnt myself. But with the TFV12 Prince, all that has been eliminated.

I can chuck clouds at 120W that look like 300W clouds. This is the future of cloud chasing.


This tank is the former champ and would make a solid fit in any rotation. It's like owning a little piece of history.

Eleaf Melo 300 – $29.99

eleaf melo 300 sub ohm tank


  • Tank Capacity: 6.5mL
  • Diameter: 26mm
  • Fill: top fill
  • (2x) Sextuple 0.17Ω (100-300W)
  • Build Material: SS & Glass
  • Air Slots: dual adustable 13mm x 3mm
  • Colors: stainless steel

The Eleaf Melo 300 is a nice tank with a super convenient top-fill design. The top cap slides a few millimeters to reveal the fill slot. Very nice and easy to use.


The ES 0.17ohm coil head is a funky looking thing-a-ma-jig. You'll see wires and cotton everywhere! It's a pretty awesome coil design and it vapes like it. You can vape on this coil all the way up to 300W, but again, I don't recommend it.

Towards the lower end of this coils range, it vapes like a beast. Right in the 125W to 150W range, I love this tank. It vapes amazingly well in that range. The clouds are huge and the flavor is not too shabby.

One of the downsides to this tank is that it doesn't come with a replacement glass. Booooo. If you break the glass, you're screwed pretty hard. Other than that con, it's a solid tank that will give the TFV12 tank a run for its money in 2017.


The Melo 300 is a monster tank that can hold a ton of liquid and pump out some major cloudage. If you want to bang out some crazy clouds, this tank will definitely get the job done. It's $5 cheaper than the TFV12 so you can save a little money there, just don't break the glass!

Wismec REUX – $24.99

Wismec REUX


  • Capacity: 6mL
  • Diameter: 25mm
  • Height: 68mm
  • RX triple 0.15Ω (60-160W)
  • RX ceramic 0.5Ω (40-80W)
  • SS and glass construction
  • Dual adjustable airflow 14mm x 4mm
  • Wide bore Delrin drip tip
  • Top-filling

The Wismec REUX is the sleeping giant. This is Wismec's first high performance tank, so it caught many people off guard. I didn't have lofty expectations of this tank like I did with the TFV12.


Honestly, the REUX might just be my favorite tank on this list for the simple fact that it outperformed its expectations. It blindsided me out of nowhere with these monster clouds that actually had good flavor. I was thoroughly surprised and pleased by the performance.

The REUX can go toe to toe with any tank on the market, even the TFV12. IT's hard to tell which one produces more clouds, and that's saying something. The TFV12 is not the clear cut winner when vaping at the same wattage, although it takes the cake at higher wattages. You know, the wattages nobody in their right mind vapes at. Yeah, those wattages.

When you're dealing with this much cloudage, it's hard to judge. They both do insane amounts of clouds and can easily be used as a Call of Duty style smoke screen indoors.


The REUX is one of the best all around tanks, hands down. it performs above its pay grade and can take on any tank on the market. The price point is friggin' sweet, costing less than taking my wife out to eat. Sorry babe, I'm getting this tank instead of doing date night. If you want to have a stylish tank that can chuck some serious clouds, then the REUX is a great choice.

SMOK TFV12 Cloud Beast King  –  $39.95  $29.99

SMOK TFV12 Cloud Beast King


  • Tank Capacity: 6mL
  • Diameter: 25mm
  • Fill: top fill
  • T12 0.12Ω (60W – 350W)
  • X4 0.15Ω (60W – 220W)
  • Q4 0.15Ω (60W – 190W)
  • Build Material: SS & Glass
  • Air Slots: dual adjustable 15mm x 4mm
  • Colors: gold, black, silver, rainbow

The V12 T12 coil head has 12 coils inside which give this tank a big leg up on the competition. It has an easy to use rotary top-fill design which makes filling it easy as pie.


With the T12 coil head, you'll be able to blast this tank at unearthly wattages and produce some out-of-this-world clouds. You can vape on the T12 head up to 350W! I don't recommend taking it that high unless you have iron lungs, but it is possible. The highest SMOK recommends you take it is 200W for peak performance.

If you go all the way up to 350W you might char your vape juice and then it'll taste like piss. You'll love this tank in the 130W to 200W range. The clouds will be huge and the vapor will be smooth. As long as your mod can consistently power this tank, you'll get great performance out of the TFV12.


The flavor is actually pretty decent as well, making this a great all around tank. But it's definitely best at pumping out beastly clouds. If you want a serous cloud chucker, this is one you should consider. The main reason to get this one over the TFV12 Prince is the wattage range of the coils. If you like vaping at super high wattages, then get this one. If not, get the Prince.
