Product intro and specs

The Asvape Hita kit is the latest vape by Asvape, a company best known for vape mods like the Michael and the Lucifer. The Hita is a pod-style AIO as is the craze these days, and it’s designed to look like a tiny mech mod. Its internal battery is listed at 1000 mAh, it utilizes a fire button, and its pods have a 3 mL capacity. The pods are refillable, and being that it is an AIO, it takes replaceable coils; so there’s less waste produce and less money spent down the line.

Build quality and design

The Asvape Hita is surprisingly small, but still a bit larger than most super-portable pod systems like a JUUL or Uwell Caliburn. At 92 mm x 25 mm, it’s smaller than a lot of the more recent fancy pod mods though, like the Geekvape Aegis Boost or the SMOK RPM80. It is also surprisingly lightweight—I weighed it in at 67.9 grams including the coil, juice, and pod, and 50.6 grams for the mod only. It is offered in two colors, black and green, and its mech-like body is made of anodized aluminum. Both colors look great, but I like the dark green personally. No chipping or issues with it at all thanks to not being painted.

The design is simple. There’s no screen and only a fire button and a LED light in the middle of the body. There is an “Asvape Hita” engraving in the front which looks great, but there’s also some additional branding on the back which I am not a big fan of. I wish it would have been left off to give it a cleaner look. It’s also very durable despite being light. You won’t have to worry about damaging it from drops. All in all, it’s really a beautiful little pod system that mimics the looks of a mini mechanical mod.

Getting started

The Asvape Hita is a pretty typical pod system that’s simple to use. There is one button on it which serves as a firing button. You can click it five times to turn the device on or off. That’s all there is to it—no auto-draw option.

The pod itself uses a standard 510 drip tip which is great as it allows you to use your own. The included tip is an Ultem colored one that matches the pod. The airflow is adjustable as well by turning the entire pod.

There is a rubber fill plug on the side and filling the pod is pretty simple. You do need to remove the pod from the battery in order to refill it though. Thankfully, the pod is fully exposed and the Ultem color is light enough so it’s very easy to see the juice level. I’m really happy they did that, as this is something most pod systems fail at. Part of the pod goes inside the battery though, so when you’re running low on juice, you’ll have to tilt it to see how much you have left.

The pod is held in place by strong magnets and you need to twist it when putting it in so you can line it up with the air adjustment. The coils aren’t the easiest to replace though. First off, make sure that the pod is empty and unscrew the bottom cap. This will give you access to the coil. Unfortunately, the coil is pushed all the way in and you may need to use something like a small screwdriver to pop it out. But once you get hold of it, it comes out easy. Not a big deal but could be a hassle if you try to switch coils on the go. The last step is to unscrew the re-usable base from the coil, screw it on the new coil, push it into place, and screw the bottom of the pod back on.

Performance

The Asvape Hita comes with two coil options, a 0.5-ohm coil and a 1.0-ohm coil. There is also an RBA deck available as a separate purchase. It comes with a 510 base, so you can use the mod with any fitting tank which is really cool idea. So, you have two premade coil options, an RBA option, and the option to use the battery with any atomizer that has a 510 connection on it.  That should give a lot of longevity to this device in case they stop making coils for it.

I started off with the 0.5-ohm coil. I used 50/50 20 mg nic salt juices in it and the flavor was great. Some of the best I’ve ever had from a pod system. It’s a restricted DL vape even with the air turned down, but I preferred it fully open. It does have a pretty big break-in period though—the first half of the tank had a funky flavor, but it went away after that and never came back. I ran 27 mL of that juice in it and the coil was still good with great flavor. Then I ran one tank of 70/30 3 mg juice and while the nic was too low for me at that output, the coil handled it great with no issues at all. All in all, I got 30 mL of juice out of it and could have gotten more as it hadn’t burn yet. It’s great coil with my only one minor complaint being the break-in period.

Then I used the 1.0-ohm coil also with 50/50 20 mg nic salt juice. This one had no break-in period—it was good from the start. Flavor was great as well, but a little behind the 1.0-ohm coil. It lasted me for 21 mL before the flavor deteriorated. Really good life, just not as long-lasting as the 0.5-ohm coil. This one is also a restricted DL vape, but I preferred it with the air turned all the way down.

With most pod systems there is usually a clearly superior coil, but in this case, it’s pretty close. I prefer the 0.5-ohm for flavor and coil longevity. However, if you want more battery life, the 1.0-ohm coil is a great option. It just depends on preference—you can’t go wrong either way. 

RBA deck

Now onto the RBA deck. I’m happy they put out this option for people who want to make their own coils and the included 510 adapter is a great add-on. But I feel those two things should be sold separately from each other. You can use the adapter to pulse your coils on the Hita mod, but the RBA head is 510-threaded, so you can also use any mod for this purpose. It just adds an extra cost to the RBA kit, in my opinion.

Building on the RBA deck is a little challenging. Intermediate builders should be fine, but if you are a beginner, it is probably not worth the headache. Obviously, being a pod system, the deck is really small. But you can actually fit a 3 mm ID coil in there. The hex screws are so tiny that I doubt most people would have one that fits the deck in their kit. The RBA kit comes with an Allen wrench, but it is flimsy and bends when you tighten the screws. There are two slots to put your leads in, then you tighten the screws to trap them against the walls of the slots. You can wrap your coils either way, but you are better off going counterclockwise—it’ll be easier to install. Wicking is simple; you’ll want to go light on the cotton though, as the juice holes are pretty small.

Overall, the RBA deck works well and actually has a tighter draw then the premade coils. You can get a decent MTL with the air turned down. You install it in the pod the same way as the coil and it requires the coil adapter. Given the small size and flimsy parts, it would be fine for intermediate or experienced builders. But new builders would be better off with the premade coils.

Battery life and charging

The Hita comes with an internal battery listed at 1000 mAh. They list the charge rate at 1 amp and the port is USB Type-C. I tested all this and for the charge rate I got max 0.95 amps, so great rating there. Testing for capacity I got 825 mAh. It is slightly overrated, but close enough. All internal batteries come a little overrated, so a good rule of thumb is to expect 10-20% less than the listed capacity. I would have felt more comfortable with a 900 mAh rating though, so I’ll give them a slight ding there.

Charge time takes about 55-60 minutes, so it charges fast enough. As for battery life, I got over one fill per charge on the 0.5-ohm coil. This will depend on how you vape, but you may need to charge it at some point during the day. Sadly, the device doesn’t support pass-through vaping, which I find to be a pretty big oversight these days.

The Type-C port is located on the bottom of the mod, so you have to lay it sideways to charge. There is an LED light inside the firing button which shows battery level while firing. Unfortunately, it’s only a three-step meter.

  • Green: 50% to 100%
  • White: 49% to “low”
  • Red: “low”

In real life though, it’s more like green, then white, then dead. You’ll get one or two fires when it’s reached the red light. They really should have spaced it out better and added a fourth step in my opinion.

Pros / Cons

  • Solid build quality
  • Pocketable and lightweight
  • Coloring on mod looks great
  • Adjustable airflow
  • Uses standard 510 drip tip
  • Pods are held in firmly
  • Easy to use and fill 
  • Clear enough pods to easily see juice level
  • Two coil options included
  • Good flavor from both coils
  • Good life from both coils
  • RBA deck available to make your own coils
  • 510 adapter available to use any atomizer on the mod
  • Good charge rate (0.95 amps) that’s listed correctly 
  • USB Type-C charging
  • Good battery life considering its size
  • Only two color options
  • Logo on the back of the mod ruins the clean mech like look
  • Some break-in period on the 0.5-ohm coil
  • Coils are hard to pull out of pod due to being indented in
  • Battery meter could be better
  • Slightly overstated battery capacity (closer to 900 mAh)
  • No pass-through vaping

Verdict

Overall, Asvape made a great pod system here. As with most pod based devices, it comes down to the coils; and both coils were really good. Plus, you can get the RBA kit if you are a builder, and if you want to use the mod with another tank, there is the 510 adapter. This is a really nice kit which offers something for everybody, and I think it is well worth a look if you are looking for something new to buy. Just a few minor cons, but nothing even close to deal breaking with all the good this kit offers.

We’d like to hear from you. Have you tried the Asvape Hita? How was your experience with the device? Let us know in the comments below.

I started doing reviews at the end of 2016 bringing a unique amount of data and fair points that has made them grow in popularity. I’m an avid temp control vaper but will vape pretty much any style of vaping. My goal is to bring as much good, fair, and unbiased information to the forefront as I can to aid vapers in making informed decisions to get the best vape for their style. I enjoy helping people really get the most out of their vape and finding their “aha” moment when it all clicks into place.
