Asvape Touch Pod Review: Vaping and Swiping on a Pod

Jeremy Mann

Product intro and specs

The Asvape Touch is the first refillable pod vape with a touchscreen. The two-inch color touchscreen records several pieces of data about your vaping habits, which makes this a fairly innovative interface for a pod device. The Touch is firmware upgradeable, and it also has three interchangeable wallpapers as well as a customizable wallpaper.

The Touch comes with a 1.6-ohm refillable pod that holds 1.5 mL of juice. It can be vaped at three power settings (8, 10, and 12 watts). The automatic draw is a legit MTL with a fairly tight hit that’s perfect for nic salts. It’s certainly a pod mod with more to offer than others in its power class.

This kit was sent to me free of charge by MyVpro, where it’s currently available at a discounted price.

Colors: Silver, matte black, shiny black, rainbow, rose gold, gold
Price: $59.99 (at MyVPro)

Build quality and design

Asvape Touch Pod Review | Vaping and Swiping on a Pod

The Asvape Touch is flat hexagon-shaped pod mod that’s small enough to be concealed in most hands. It’s pocket-friendly too: it weighs about 80 grams with a pod in, and its dimensions are 82 mm x 45 mm x 15 mm.

The 1.5 mL pods have an ergonomic mouthpiece that feels comfortable drawing on, and they are held into the pod by magnets — but they’re weak. There is front and back movement when the pod is in the device, but it is held in snug laterally. Luckily, I’ve yet to have a pod come out when drawing on the device. And I can lift the whole Touch by the pod with it staying in, but if you drop the device it will likely pop out.

The pods are filled via a dual-fill port under a hinged door. Filling the pods is easy, and although there are two ports, only one needs to be used to fill the pod. When filling though, make sure to tilt the pod to allow for liquid to pass by the chimney to the other side. Unfortunately, there’s only 1.5 mL capacity — that’s a bit less than its size suggests.

The Touch is operated by an automatic draw for vaping, a touchscreen for switching modes, wallpapers, and reading your stats, and it’s turned on by a side button by a press and hold. Under that side button is a factory-reset miniature hole, and a USB charge port for upgrading the firmware, customizing the wallpaper, and charging the device.

Features and functions

The Asvape Touch has a fully operational two-inch color touchscreen. Selections are done by touching and swiping up or down. For a pod device, it offers way more options than most.

Selections:

  • Three power modes to choose: soft (8 watts), standard (10 watts), and strong (12 watts)
  • Three wallpapers and a customizable wallpaper
  • Incognito mode turns off screen with a quick press of the on/off button
  • Factory reset micro hole (use a needle to reset)

Screen info:

  • Total puffs (since first puff)
  • Total vaping time (total vape time since first vape)
  • Puffs remaining for battery life
  • Total vape time left (before battery dies)
  • Puffs (since last charge)
  • Vape time (since last charge)

Overall, the amount of data the screen can give you about your vaping is an overall plus. I like being able to see all that info, although I have never been much for puff counters. I do enjoy seeing the approximate vape time left, either in draw-time or in puffs. From what I can tell, it’s pretty accurate, though it’s an estimate of what’s left (considering your draw times will vary and maybe even what power mode you select). But by and large, it keeps true to what it says is left.

You’re probably wondering: how well does the touch screen work? It works well, but the swipe up and down results in a slight delay before the screen change. The swipe doesn’t need to be a long one, but it would be nice if the screen switched simultaneously with it. All things considered, it’s a fairly responsive touchscreen for a vape. Not the most responsive, but it’s rare that I swipe and it doesn’t register.

Performance

The Asvape Touch is standard fare inside of the pod: a 1.6-ohm coil wicked with organic cotton. But, the flavor and vapor are above average for a pod device. Plus, the automatic draw is responsive and perfectly suited for an MTL draw.

The coils wick fast, and there’s been no leaking, spitting, or popping. On the initial vape, the pods are quiet, but the coil cool down is a tad loud (similar to the Mi-Pod, but not as loud). I’ve been vaping mine mostly in soft mode (8 watts) with a 50/50 juice (though I’ve tried 70VG with about the same wicking performance).

Although the flavor and vapor are good, I think the coils get a little too toasty with longer drags in standard and strong mode, which is why I’m keeping mine in soft mode with shorter hits. I like to take long drags with a bit more heat, so the Touch is a bit disappointing in overall vape quality for me. I haven’t gotten a full-on burnt hit yet, but that’s because I stop before it comes. From my experience, this is not the device to chain vape. I’ve been using it as a backup for when I’m charging a device I prefer to use.

Battery life

The battery life has been good, considering it is only 500 mAh. I’ve been easily able to get a full day out of a charge with a few hundred (short) puffs. I’m happy to say the Touch also has pass-thru charging, which makes it less of a hassle to charge for those that don’t have a bunch of other options. Total charge time from depleted to 100% took 63 minutes.

Pros / Cons

  • Good flavor and vapor for a pod vape
  • No leaking/spitting/popping
  • Good battery life
  • Pass-thru charging
  • Incognito mode allows for stealth vaping
  • No glitches in touchscreen
  • Ergonomic mouthpiece
  • Lots of data about vaping times
  • Not good for chain vaping
  • Pods have too much wiggle room
  • Screen change happens after swipe
  • 1.5 mL capacity is a bit low for the size

Verdict

The Asvape Touch is a pod mod with a lot to offer in terms of features and functions. Although I wish the screen changed while swiping, it’s still responsive and I don’t have to re-swipe for it to register. For a touchscreen, I think it works pretty well. That said, the one thing that matters most is vape quality. The flavor and vapor are good, but the consistency of the hits is lacking when taking longer drags. Personally, I’d prefer a pod with less flavor and vapor over fearing a burnt hit looming. Based on that issue with the coils, the Asvape Touch is not a device I would recommend. But it should be noted, again, that I do like to take longer hits. If you’re the type of vaper that takes short (1-2 second puffs) with lower power, you’d likely have a better experience than I did.

I'm the chief editor here at Vaping360 and I reside in southeast Michigan. I've been vaping since my first ecig purchase in 2010. For more reasons than I can list, vaping has been a lifesaver for me. Now, my goal is to help other smokers make the switch.
