Our Verdict

The Hellbeast 2 is even better than the original and quite honestly, it’s better than a lot of other subohm tanks on the market right now. The added leak-proof nature of this being a top airflow tank doesn’t in any way hamper the flavor and that’s a big positive point of this tank. Where your usual top airflow tank is leak proof but sacrifices flavor, this isn’t the case with the Hellbeast 2. 

The build quality is excellent as I have come to expect from a company like Hellvape so there aren’t any issues there either. I also think that it’s a good looking tank, although it could do without the base being so thick.

It’s hard to find a fault with this tank. If I had to be picky, the tank gets hot quickly but it also cools down fast. It’s also a little loud but that shouldn’t be a dealbreaker with all of the other excellent qualities that this tank has.

I think that Hellvape did an excellent job with the Hellbeast 2 and if you’re in the market for a new subohm tank then I can easily recommend picking one up.

The Hellbeast 2 is Hellvape’s latest subohm tank. It’s the follow-up to the original Hellbeast tank that came out in early 2019 and with the pace that vaping products are released, it seems like that was an eternity ago. 

It seems like they’ve been working hard these past 3 years though as the Hellbeast 2 brings some major changes from the original Hellbeast. It now uses a top airflow system to prevent leaking and uses Hellvape’s new “P series” coils. It also comes with an “anti-condensation drip tip” and the internal structure is supposed to prevent condensation while vaping.

Hellvape is best known for their “Dead Rabbit” series of RDAs and RTAs, but they also have their Fat Rabbit series of tanks, and of course their Hellbeast series of tanks. They are a vaping manufacturer that is widely known for producing some of the best and most flavorful tanks on the market so I’m excited to see how the Hellbeast 2 stacks up.

This tank was sent to me by Hellvape for the purpose of this review.

Design & Build Quality

  • Hellvape Hellbeast 2 Subohm Tank - 1

The Hellbeast 2 is a nice looking tank. It has a design that is much different from the original though, so much so that if you put them next to each other, you wouldn’t even know that they were from the same series. The only real similarities between the two tanks is that they both share a 24mm base diameter; kind of. On the Hellbeast 2, the base is 24mm but quickly flares out to 26mm.

The Hellbeast 2 has a lot of knurling going on; something that was not present at all on the original. There’s knurling around the airflow control ring for grip, as well as on the base of the tank (which is the part that you unscrew to insert or remove the coils). The Hellbeast 2 also has a series of indentations all around the edge of the top cap which also adds some grip when removing it to access the fill ports. It’s a very different design, but it’s one that looks really good and I think that it looks even better than the original.

This tank is made out of stainless steel and you can feel that it is solid and well made. It has some heft to it when you hold it in your hand and it weighs a whopping 71g when empty. The build quality is excellent all around and all of the pieces are precisely and cleanly machined.

Starting from the top of the tank, the Hellbeast 2 comes with an 810 drip tip that looks pretty standard. However, this drip tip has an interesting structure that prevents condensation while vaping. The inside of the drip tip is cut out like a “V” and this shape captures all of the condensation and funnels it back into the tank. It really works and after a few pulls you can see the condensation inside the drip tip. I haven’t had any eliquid or condensation in my mouth either.

The drip tip is removable and the o-rings are located inside the top cap, so you can use your own 810 drip tip if you wish. I found the one that comes with this tank to be very nice and comfortable though and it stays cool while vaping too.

Hellvape Hellbeast 2 Subohm Tank - Top Cap and Fill Port

The top cap comes off with a quarter turn to reveal two kidney shaped fill ports. The threading is super smooth. The fill ports are surrounded by a silicone gasket to prevent leaking. When the top cap is installed, the fill ports get completely sealed and there’s no chance of ejuice making its way out, even if you turn the tank completely upside down.

The airflow control ring has a series of diagonal lines that function as a sort of knurling and this adds grip to what would otherwise be a smooth and slippery AFC ring. There are two very wide airflow slots and you can adjust the AFC ring to anywhere from wide open to fully closed. The AFC works on a stopper and will stop once fully opened or fully closed. The control is very smooth and easy to turn, but firm enough that it will stay wherever it is set to.

The airflow pathing for this tank is very similar to the Dead Rabbit V3 RTA and it makes the flavor from this tank similar to a bottom airflow tank. There are two channels inside of the tank, one leading from each airflow hole. These channels isolate the airflow until it reaches the bottom of the tank, at which point the airflow goes through the center of the coil and then out the drip tip. This not only prevents leaking, but it also improves the flavor that this tank delivers. 

A straight glass comes pre-installed on the Hellbeast 2 and it will hold up to 3.5ml of ejuice. You can swap out this straight glass with the bubble glass that comes included in the package and this will up the capacity to 5ml. As soon as I got this tank out of the package, I swapped out the straight glass for the bubble glass and I haven’t looked back since. The 5ml capacity gets me through at least a couple hours of vaping before having to refill and the tank looks better with the bubble glass too.

The portion of the tank underneath the glass is a bit thick but it’s a good design. On the inside it’s like a deep bowl that, in the event that there is leaking through the coil, it will catch any ejuice and it can hold quite a bit (somewhere between 1-2ml by my estimations). I’ve been using this tank for a while now though and I haven’t found any ejuice inside this bottom part of the tank so it seems like leaking is not an issue to be worried about with the Hellbeast 2.

This bottom part of the tank unscrews and the threading, like the top cap, is smooth and perfect. Once you have this bottom portion off, you can easily install or remove the coil. This tank uses a plug and play system where you just push the coil in or pull it out and that’s it. It’s very easy and hassle-free.


Coils

Hellvape Hellbeast 2 Subohm Tank - P7-02 Coils

The Hellbeast 2 uses Hellvape’s new P series of coils which are exclusively made for the Hellbeast 2 tank. The box comes with two identical P7-02 coils which are made of Kanthal A1 and which have a resistance of 0.2Ω. These coils are best vaped at 50-60W. They use natural organic cotton for wicking and a large mesh coil for the heating element. This resistance and the airflow that these coils provide make them perfect for DTL vaping.

There are also P7-01 coils available to be purchased separately which are 0.15Ω KA1 coils that are best from 60-70W. You can purchase 3 packs of these P series coils and they seem to be readily available at many online vape stores for around $6.99 USD.


Performance

Hellvape Hellbeast 2 Subohm Tank - Bubble Glass 2

In the time that I was testing for this review, I used the Hellbeast 2 with my Freemax Solo mod. I also only tested the tank with the included 0.2Ω, P7-02 coils. If I get my hands on the P7-01 coil then I will update this review with my thoughts, but for now I’ll just go over the coils that you get with the tank. I used two 6mg regular nicotine ejuices in 70VG and 80VG ratios for my testing.

Since this is a top airflow tank, I fully expected to be disappointed by the flavor. But because of the way the airflow is isolated until it reaches the bottom of the coil, the flavor is really good and comparable to the flavor that I get from bottom airflow tanks. 

These 0.2Ω coils are rated as being best between 50-60W and I enjoyed vaping on them the most at the max suggested wattage of 60W. I kept the airflow completely open and there’s a little touch of restriction, but it’s still very much a true and full direct lung vape. The vapor at 60W is warm, but with the airflow wide open I can take a draw for a few seconds without burning my lips off. Closing off the airflow restricts the draw by a good bit and makes the vapor slightly warmer, but you can still take nice long draws if that’s how you like your airflow more restricted.

Clouds are not just a beast with this tank, they are a hell of a beast. Okay, maybe a little cheesy, but I had to say it. You can get monster clouds from this tank and coil at 60W and you can even push it as high as 65W. Towards 70W I started to taste the beginning of a burnt hit so I quickly turned the wattage back down.

The tank gets pretty warm after multiple draws, but the drip tip remains cool and it’s tall enough that my lips don’t contact the top cap. The tank also cools down rather quickly so this isn’t much of an issue.

The airflow is a little loud, but it doesn’t whistle and it isn’t turbulent or rough. It’s a smooth draw all around but it makes the most noise when fully open.

I mentioned this earlier, but I just want to reiterate that this tank does not leak. The top airflow pretty much ensures that it’s leak-proof and I didn’t even have any ejuice collecting in the bottom portion of the tank below the coil.


Verdict

The Hellbeast 2 is even better than the original and quite honestly, it’s better than a lot of other subohm tanks on the market right now. The added leak-proof nature of this being a top airflow tank doesn’t in any way hamper the flavor and that’s a big positive point of this tank.

For both health and financial reasons, I knew I had to quit smoking cigarettes. At a certain point I felt as if I had tried everything and it was too difficult to quit cold-turkey. That's when I found vaping and I've been off the stinkies ever since! I love testing and reviewing the latest vaping gadgets, marathoning television series and playing with my awesome dog Lupa.
