SMOANT Pasito Pod Kit Product Review

The SMOANT Pasito has been much-awaited vaping kit due to it being the first pod vape that’s also rebuildable. Going beyond the fanfare, let’s dive into what exactly makes it so unique. 

About the SMOANT Pasito

Potentially starting a whole new generation of pod systems, the SMOANT Pasito is compatible with direct-to-lung (DTL), mouth-to-lung (MTL), and rebuildable atomiser (RDA) coils. For all its functionalities, it still resembles the simple design of a pod system, with a rectangular body and a straightforward interface. It’s made of space-grade aluminium so it’s lightweight yet durable, and its replaceable pod has an e-liquid capacity of 2 to 3 mL. Its nifty features include adjustable airflow and five wattage levels from 10 to 25 W. On top of these, it’s equipped with a large 1100 mAH battery, so you can comfortably vape with it all day.   

Who is the SMOANT Pasito for?

If you’ve ever wanted a pod vape that’s hands-on, giving you more control over the settings, then the SMOANT Pasito is for you. With or without the RBA, you’d still need to remove and install the coils. The SMOANT Pasito is best suited for RDA users who like the minimal pod system design or even regular vapers looking to fine-tune their experience.

At First Glance  

Build

Overall, the SMOANT Pasito has a clean, efficient design. Its rectangular shape is similar to that of many other pod vapes. Although it’s bigger than your average pod vape because of the extra features, you’ll notice that it’s very light. Since it’s made of space-grade aluminium, it’s also sturdy and durable.  

Design

The SMOANT Pasito is decorated with gorgeous resin-like panels that are actually stickers. These are fingerprint-proof. You can choose from four different designs: Classic Red, Bronze Blue, Carbon Black, and Gunmetal. 

Structure 

The pod attaches to the top of the mod through strong magnets. At the front of the device, you’ll find five indicator LEDs that can signal either the wattage level or the amount of battery life left. On the other side, you have the fire button, power adjustment button, and USB-C port for charging.

SMOANT Pasito Pod

The SMOANT Pasito’s pod is made of PCTG. This commonly used type of plastic has high chemical resistance, so it’s great for holding e-liquid.  

Top Half for Filling

All in all, you can fill up the pod with 2 to 3 mL of e-liquid. It’s a top-fill system, and you just have to unscrew the sleeve-style drip tip on top to reveal the filling port. The airflow switch is also on top of the pod.    

Bottom Half for Coils or RBA 

On the other hand, the bottom half of the pod doesn’t store e-liquid. Since this is the side that connects to the mod, it contains a magnet and a connector clamp that attaches to either a coil or an RDA instead. When you set the pod on top of the mod, it’s pretty much effortless because the pod is strongly held in place by the magnet.    

SMOANT Pasito RBA

SMOANT was one of the first companies to join in the pod vaping trend, and this time, they’re innovating again by taking pod systems to a whole new level. With the SMOANT Pasito, you can replace the coil-heads, build your own coils, or even combine it with an RBA deck.

There’s a corresponding SMOANT Pasito RBA deck coil that’s available for it, but you’d have to purchase it separately since it’s not part of the kit.  

What’s the SMOANT Pasito RBA like? 

Since the RBA does have to fit inside the SMOANT Pasito pod, it’s smaller than usual, so setting it up isn’t for beginners. Conveniently, the RBA has a threaded 510 adaptor, which makes it versatile enough to be paired with your other vaping devices.  

How does the SMOANT Pasito RBA perform? 

Performance depends on how you build it. If you get it right, you can expect good flavour and vapour production with no leaks. 

SMOANT Pasito Battery  

How long is the battery life of the SMOANT Pasito?

Thanks to the 1100 mAH battery, the SMOANT Pasito lasts for a long time in between charges. Even if you vape at the higher wattage levels (20-25 W), you can still use it for six hours or more! A 1100 mAH battery is one of the largest that you’ll see in any kind of mod, not to mention that it’s very rare in pod vapes.

Keep in mind, though, the specific number of hours that it lasts does depend on the wattage levels and the coils that you’re using. Higher power consumes battery faster, especially if you’re going all out with an RBA. 

Is there a way for me to tell how much battery life is left?

The five LEDs at the front of the mod can be used to show the remaining battery life. Just press the fire button at the back, and one or more LEDs will light up. Each LED represents an additional 20% of battery life, so the more LEDs activated, the more charge the SMOANT Pasito has left.

In a nutshell:

  • One LED: 0-20%
  • Two LEDs: 20-40%
  • Three LEDs: 40-60%
  • Four LEDs: 60-80%
  • Five LEDs: 80-100% 

How do I charge the SMOANT Pasito?

You charge it through a USB Type-C port at the back of the device, next to the firing and wattage adjustment buttons. Charging it to full capacity takes around an hour or more, but you can vape with it while it’s charging.

SMOANT Pasito Coils

MTL, DTL, and RBA coils are all usable with the SMOANT Pasito. By default, the kit includes a 0.6-ohm mesh coil and a 1.4-ohm Ni80 coil. 

What’s the difference between the 0.6-ohm and 1.4-ohm coils?

Both coils produce good flavour and vapour production. The main difference is that the 0.6-ohm coil is best suited for DTL and low-nicotine e-liquids, while the 1.4-ohm coil is for MTL vaping and nicotine salts. Many vapers have a bias for the 0.6-ohm coil because it yields strong flavour.  

Other SMOANT Pasito Features

Adjustable Wattage

The SMOANT Pasito has an adjustable wattage output going from 10 W to 25 W.

How do I change the wattage level?

Press the smaller button at the back of the mod. You can then see the current wattage level by checking the LED indicators on the other side:

  • One LED = 10 W
  • Two LEDs = 13 W
  • Three LEDs = 16 W
  • Four LEDs = 20 W
  • Five LEDs = 25 W

Keep clicking the button again to go through each wattage level until you reach your desired one. 

Adjustable Airflow

The SMOANT Pasito has adjustable airflow. At the top of the pod, there’s a small sliding switch that you can flip to either open or close the airflow. Open airflow results in an airy vape. The closed airflow setting still lets some air in, so your vape will be slightly constricted but not tight

Verdict

As a breakthrough device that brings RBA capabilities to pod systems, the SMOANT Pasito is definitely a first in the vaping world. There’s a lot of room to customise your experience, from your choice of coils and e-liquids to adjustable airflow and wattage. In addition, its battery life beats out that of most other pod vapes. With its versatility and unparalleled features, the SMOANT Pasito is a reliable kit that’s unlike any you’ve tried before.
