Design and Features
The Yocan Hit is another dry herb vape with a vape pen-like design. That means it has a cylindrical shape instead of the standard box shape that you see in other types of weed vapes. It’s a good deal girthier than most vape pens, but it is still easily portable at a little over four inches in height. The Hit has a large and clear OLED screen that keeps you updated on all of the necessary info like temperature and battery level. However, it has haptic feedback as well, so you don’t need to look at the screen to know when it has reached the selected temperature.
The big innovation of the Hit is on the inside, specifically on the inside of the mouthpiece, which has an integrated stirring tool built right in. It’s an interesting feature that some vapers will find useful, but since the Hit is a convection vaporizer that means that you won’t be using it as much as you would in a conduction vaporizer.
The build quality of the hit is solid as it’s made from aluminum and it has a nice heft to it. The mouthpiece is magnetically connected to the battery which means that it is easy to remove and that you can stir the herb in the chamber while the mouthpiece is still attached. The controls are simple but the decision to put the power button underneath the LED screen and the temp selection buttons on the side of the device is an odd one. It would make more sense if they were closer together, but ultimately, it’s not too inconvenient.
As you would expect, the integrated stir tool is the standout feature. However, the convection heating is another nice feature that you wouldn’t expect in a vaporizer that is this inexpensive.
How to Use
- Remove the mouthpiece, load the chamber with herb, and then replace the mouthpiece.
- Rapidly press the power button five times to turn on the device.
- Use the up and down buttons to select the temperature.
- Once the device has finished heating, press the power button while inhaling from the mouthpiece.
Cleaning and Maintenance
Since the Hit is a convection vaporizer, cleaning it is very easy. You just need to empty out the chamber after a session and then use the cleaning brush to get rid of any residue that is left over.
Performance and Vapor Quality
The vapor produced by the Hit is quite tasty and much better than you would expect for a vape that costs under $100. You can probably guess that the convection heating and the integrated stir tool have a lot to do with that. With the ability to stir the herb while you’re vaping, you can maximize the flavor during each session by making sure that every single piece of herb gets fully vaped.
You can choose the length of that session too since the Hit allows you to choose between three or five-minute sessions. They each provide a slightly different experience with the three-minute session being a little more intense and the five-minute session being a little more chill and relaxed. It’s a nice option to have since you can calibrate a session to your liking.
The Hit has a 1400 mAh battery that can last for about a few hours of moderate vaping. This is the one area where you the inexpensive nature of the device is noticeable since more expensive weed vapes tend to have larger batteries. At least it uses a USB-C charger so recharge times are pretty quick.
