Horizon Tech, the Originator of V8, Innovates Further

When Horizon Tech first released the Arctic V8, it was the beginning of a revelation in a new direction for the vapor industry – The beginning of a very effective vaping experience when using a sub ohm tank. HorizonTech was making a statement,

which said, “the only tank which boasts cloud production and flavor similar to an RDA.”

If a consumer were looking for milky cloud production as well as tasty distinct flavor, typically an RDA was the top piece of choice and perhaps it’s still is, after all there’s nothing like dripping on a fresh build that you are somehow very proud of because you took your time and did something constructive and practiced the safety precautions necessary for being a responsible adult vape enthusiast and hobbyist.

If you know how-to build your coils for RDAs or RDTAs, then you are a hobbyist and enthusiast whether you identify as one or not. It is an impressive microcosm within the vaping lifestyle requiring the skills necessary to exert mental spend much of your intense concentration.

It was a whole new wave of Innovation when horizon tech released their Arxtic V8, shortly thereafter we saw the sequel to the Arctic V 8but also it’s competitor and they improved upon this same concept of innovative ingenuity within the industry. The cloud beast

It is definitely one of the most popular tanks around, also the choice of a vast selection of coil options could this be considered an innovative fours which allowed the consumer to experience the of an RDA but from a tank? Some say so.

perhaps we would’ve never seen the cloud beast if it weren’t for the Arctic V8 with decision of choosing coil’s that were considered Clapton hive oils snake coils tiger coils

Horizon Tech Tips

Horizon Tech provides suggestions in the manual which essentially serves as a Troubleshooting guide that is most certainly helpful. For instance, it states, “Losing flavor or clouds? Time to change the coil. Make sure the coil is compatible with your tank. Coils have no set life span. Keep the coil in its protective packaging until ready to use. Clean your tank when changing the coil to maximize flavor.
Don’t over-tighten the coil into the base. Take your time priming the coil before use to avoid a dry hit. Try different styles of coils (clapton, ceramic etc.) to customize flavor/clouds.”

Early Issues Observed & Experienced

When I used the first coil that came already screwed into the atomizer base of the tank, there were certainly some major leaking issues that became quite frustrating. Every time, I’d refill the tank, it would simply ooze out the airflow holes at the base of the tank.

However, I remembered to make sure the 510 male and female parts were not overly tightened and then primed the coil. Everything recommended was performed – this was going to be a great tank experience as the Arctic V8 was the originator of great flavor, consistently perfect cloud production, and a multi-selection of coil types like the Tiger coils, Hives, Claptons or even Snake Coils.

So, I was certainly looking forward to this experience. The first couple pulls were smooth, flavorful, thick cloud producing – but something felt weak, as if there should have been a quick draw mouth-to-lung experience. Perhaps the triple battery iJoy mod was not cutting it. Switching to my Sigelei Fuchai 213 was by far a much different experience. Most likely because of the setting option for “Preheat Power Adjustment” on the 213 mod is brilliant innovation, allowing the user to choose how quickly the Mod could power the tank and what temperature you would prefer that it reaches – I have this currently set at 100 watts in 0.10 seconds. It’s quite overzealous for such a request on my Sigelei Fuchai 213. But everyone has different preferences. Regardless, it seemed this tank might just perform differently with each mod. Thus, the experimenting began.

The experimentation only went as far as unscrewing the tank and testing it on all other high-powered mods capable of handling 0.5 ohms resistance. The result, the flavor certainly changed up Sigelei Fuchai 213 to SMOK Alien to the Vaporesso’s Tarot Nano to an Asmodus 150H. People might see this flavor alteration as a disadvantage, yet I found it to be quite enjoyable

The Arctic V12 tank by Horizon Tech is specially stylized and highly technical. Considering this, technically speaking, it is a “Sub-Ohm resistance atomizer” and only work on devices that can handle Sub-Ohm resistance of 0.5ohm or lower. Please make sure you have an understanding that requires some technical knowledge on how to use high-powered mods and lithium-ion batteries.

Do not use short or flat 510 connection on any hybrid or hybrid style device. If you are not familiar or unsure of particular products or set-ups, please do not use it. Always follow instructions and learn as much as you can about the product before using it – watch YouTube tutorials and reviews, ask friends who are also vapor product consumers and communicate the do’s & don’t’s. Keep an open mind – read more than one review, as many reviews have different interpretations. Take all the appropriate precautions before handling and make sure to vape safe and vape often.

horizontech-arctic-v12-tank-reviewHorizonTech Arctic V12 lives up to it's expectation and I have a soft spot for the original V8, so it’s difficult to judge too harshly. It's certainly a quality product. The Arctic V12 certainly is a top-notch quality tank, easily one of the best on the market as of right now (as long as you get the leaking under control - an easy fix). This is a smart and easy top filling system with all the usual adapters like 510 threading. Even if the product tends to leak quite a bit, Horizon Tech takes the time to provide step-by-step instructions on how to remedy the frustrating scenario. When using a tank like the Arctic V12, it is very difficult not to compare it to the SMOK V12 Cloud Beast King. Coincidentally, the Beast King will be the next reviewed tank following the Arctic V12. All in all, I would highly recommend Horizon Tech’s new innovative and powerful top piece to completing a perfect vaping setup.
