The complete SMOK coils guide
Despite the fact there is quite a range of SMOK coils on the market, buying the right one doesn’t have to be confusing. There are a number of different types, all of which have ohm variations.
We’re here to guide you through finding your SMOK coil, also called an atomiser head, and helping you to get the most from your tank and vape experience.
Whether you are a cloud chaser, a flavour craver or someone who just wants to curb their nicotine cravings, there is a SMOK coil for you.
Are all SMOK coils the same?
No. All SMOK coils are not the same. Of course, you need to make sure you select the right one for your tank, but you also want to make sure you vape it at the best wattage.
Some atomisers will fit your tank to provide a cigarette-like an experience and another a cloud chasing lungful of vape.
SMOK is known for making the following tanks and pods:
- TFV8 Tank
- TFV8 Baby Tank (This is 1/3 smaller than the original TFV8 tank)
- TFV8 X Baby Tank (Slightly larger than the TFV8 Baby)
- TFV16 Tank
- Smok Resa Baby Tank
- Prince Tank

Nord Vs RPM - what’s the difference?
Then you’ve got your Nord and RPM coils from SMOK. You can use these in your RPM40 kit, but they will give you a slightly different vaping experience.
If you want to see the real breakdown of these two pods, check out our comparison of the SMOK RPM40 vs the Nord Kit and the Nord Kit 2.
There are 4 RPM SMOK coils types, including
- Mesh O.4 Ohm
- Triple 0.6 Ohm
- Quartz 1.2 Ohm
- Single 1.0 Ohm
There are also 5 types of Nord available. You have:
- Mesh 0.6 ohm
- Mesh 0.6ohm
- Mesh 1.4ohm
- 0.8 ohm Ceramic
- 1.4 Ceramic
In a nutshell, to compare two of these: The 0.6ohm Nord SMOK coils will give you more of a nicotine hit and flavour, however much less vapor production. The RPM mesh coil is 0.4 and will produce a smoother throat hit, with more vapor produced.
Both types in these ranges are fantastic SMOK coils. Make sure you are selecting the right ohms for your vaping style and wattage.
What SMOK coils do I need for my device?
SMOK Nord pod kit atomiser heads are the ones you will need for your Nord pod vape kit. These versatile coils allow you to use the device as a sub ohm kit or a more discrete device, depending on your need.
Nord Mesh will be ideal for DTL vaping, whereas the 1.4ohm kit is perfect for MTL vaping. Both will give you great flavour, however, MTL coil will be less vapor than the DTL. The one you choose will depend on your personal vaping style.
With your SMOK Fetch kit you will be able to use the RGC 0.17ohm conical mesh coil or the RPM range. The RGC coils are best for those who are after a decent vapor production with higher wattages. RPM is better for people who are looking for something more discrete and subtle.
Your RPM40 will use RPM SMOK coils. You will choose the one based on your wattage and whether you are after flavour, vapor or both. SMOK suggests the best for excellent flavour and vapor is the RPM Triple coil 0.6ohm, at 25W.
TFV8 Baby Beast
There are a few different versions of this coil designed for various wattages and outputs.
- M2 - dual coil, 0.25ohm
- X4 - quadruple coil, 30-70W, 0.13ohm
- T6 - sextuple dual coil, 40-130W, 0.2ohm
There are 8 different atomiser heads to choose from for this tank. All of which are going to give you great flavour, some are a little more in your face in terms of clouds than others. Loads more detail on the best watts for these below.
The SMOK Resa tank on the Resa stick uses the same coils as the TFV12 Prince tank.
TFV Mini tank V2
The TFV Mini Tank V2 works with the SMOK V2 A2 coils. They’re going to kick out some vape production and give you a decent flavour too. The large hole in the coil is covered in mesh which heats it perfectly and gives you a super satisfying vape experience.
You'd use these on your R-Kiss Kit, T-Storm, Species, Mag P3 and SMOK Stick 80W
TFV12 coils explained
There are 8 different TFV12 coil options, from mesh, to dual and quadruple. Each is going to provide you with a slightly different vape experience in your TV12 tank. Here are the atomiser heads you can get hold of for the Prince from SMOK and what you can expect.
- Q4 - Quadruple - 0.4ohm. Best at 60-80W
Plenty of vapor production, flavour is on point. Wide open airflow. Great, airy vape.
- T10 Prince - these have 5 different coil structures. 0.12ohm. Best at 80-110 W
If you’re looking for wide open airflow, this is for you! At 90W it kicks out some really impressive vapour. Better flavour too.
- V12 M4 - Quadruple atomiser head. 0.17ohm Best at 40-60 W
Wide open airflow, not as much as Q4, but great performance, depending on how high you go with the wattage.
- V12 F6 Prince - Sextuple coil head, 6 different heads in a vertical structure. 0.15ohms - best 80-100W
Smooth vape, the flavour on point
- V12 Max Mesh - huge wicking slots, uses jap organic cotton, mesh coil head, 0.17ohm- best at 90-100W
Known for MASSIVE clouds, rich flavour! Max it out at 90-100Watts. Everything about this coil is huge, even the clouds it produces. Smooth vape but with some serious monster clouds.
- V12 triple mesh coil- Triple mesh, 0.15ohms, best at 100-120W
All the SMOK coils have great production of flavour and vapour, but with this triple mesh you get fantastic flavour!
- V12 Prince dual mesh - dual mesh. 0.2ohm coil. Best at 65-75w
This one is similar to triple mesh, but the difference is in the ohms and lower wattage.
- V12 Prince X2 Clapton - 2 different Clapton coil heads, 0.2ohm coil. Best at 60 -70W
Plenty of airflow, great vapour production.
What juice is best for my SMOK coil?
This will depend on the resistance of your coil. If it is below 1ohm, ideally under 0.5ohm, you will want high VG. If your coil is 1ohm and above, it will be better with high PG. You can find out more about this in our ultimate guide to vaping.
