This epic pod system is an innovative take on the regular pod kit. This isn’t your run-of-the-mill device; this is a cutting-edge product. I think you will enjoy it.
The advanced mechanism in this pod system provide short-circuit, open circuit, low voltage, and overheating protection. Considering the touch screen capabilities, I am glad there are protection parameters in place. You don’t want an overheating problem to cause a malfunction, or worse.
You can adjust taste modes, theme settings, and more using the fancy 2.0” touch screen. Imagine a smartphone slash vape. Hell yeah, that’d be insane.
The draw-activated function provides the feeling of puffing on a real cigarette (or puffing on a smartphone, if that were possible). This is an easy-to-use, futuristic device that will quench and satisfy your vape cravings in more ways than one.
I personally enjoyed it, but don’t just take one opinion. We’ve consulted reviews from across the web and gathered a consensus for you.

The unique selling point of the Asvape Touch Pod System is the touch screen. That sleek, fancy, sophisticated display allows you to view stats and make the adjustments you want. All class and a glass screen in which you can read the history of the Renaissance period. Just kidding, but that would be pretty cool—wouldn’t it?
The problem with a sleek product like this is that you’re always wondering what could go wrong. What happens if I drop it? What happens if I crack the screen? How is the battery holding up? How long will it last if it’s constantly pulling battery to charge the touch screen?
I wouldn’t recommend this to anyone with clumsy, slippery fingers. It appears that if you crack your screen, it’s game over. On the bright side, the 500mAh powers this pretty young thing nicely. A new iteration is expected to arrive boasting a 600mAh battery, but we don’t know the release date, yet.
The touch screen is reminiscent of the iPod Touch – back when Apple still manufactured them. The touch screen is responsive and shiny. It can be a bit of a fingerprint magnet, though. Not a major deal-breaker but as Mike Vapes mentioned, he kept wiping it clean on his sleeve.
It’s very simple to tap and swipe through the settings to personalize or view your stats. The Asvape offers three taste settings. I began with the soft draw, so I don’t burn my coils, then jumped into the stronger settings – all performed admirably. You can adjust your wallpaper to anything of your choosing, which, honestly, I have yet to try myself.
Other stats include puffs left, puff count, battery life, etc., and the firmware is upgradable. All settings are available via the touch screen. A consistent gaffe of mine when vaping this pod system was confusing the on/off switch with a firing button. This is a draw-activated device.
I loved the flavor using a 50 / 50 nicotine salt-based e-juice, and it provides a satisfying, restrictive lung hit. It’s kind of annoying to fill, because of its dual filling hole design, but it’s not a panic-worthy complaint.
Let’s now take a look at the general consensus from the reviewers.
One of the most consistent negatives across the board, across all pod systems from all brands, is a spare pod not included with the kit. The Asvape Touch Pod is missing a spare, too. All reviewers considered it a huge con.
We collected a few smaller complaints worth mentioning. The screen is a fingerprint magnet, and many complained about that. The button rattle was another complaint. Also, the dual filling holes on the pod were confusing to some. Not the end of the world, thankfully.
Let’s look at the positives. It’s a highly unique pod system with very unique features. It’s attractive and durable in its own way, and the battery pulls its weight considering everything it offers. Customizable wallpaper is a huge plus. The puff count data and battery life percentage are also a humongous plus. Positive marks surround this product in the best way possible.
In conclusion, looking at it as a pod system without the bells and whistles, it performs okay. It’s not the best pod system out there but it does offer great flavor and overall performance. In my opinion, the price is justified. Pick any decent pod system out there and this will be just as good, except this one boasts a high-end touch screen. If you’re willing to spend a few extra bucks for some cool embellishments – get this today!
