Steam Crave Hadron Lite SBS Mod Review by Illogik

Today’s review will be featuring the Steam Crave Hadron Lite SBS Mod. The mod was supplied free of charge for the purpose of this review by Joyi from Sourcemore.


This is currently my smallest mod from Steam Crave so I was curious to see if it keeps to the same high standard of quality we have come to love and expect from Steam Crave. It is quite small, fitting great in the hand if you need something to keep out of sight. The mod is 25mm wide so will accept any tank up to 25mm without overhang. It’s available colours match perfectly with the Steam Crave Supreme v3 RDTA and the Aromamizer Classic MTL RTA.

  • 2x 510 Disc protectors
  • Packet of spare screws

The packaging comes as no surprise to fans of Steam Crave with the usual sturdy black box with the red and black foam inserts inside holding everything nice and snug. Up top we have the Steam Crave branding and a wireframe image of the mod within. Below this reads the name of the mod. On the underside we have the Steam Crave authenticity scratch off panel above the barcode, safety certificates and model number.

One side shows the contained mod colour and the other shows the model number, which in this case is SC607.


Inside the box we find the mod itself sat front and centre with the extras packed below.

Once the box is emptied you’ll find the user manual, a packet of various spare screws, 2x 510 protector discs, 2x 21700 battery wraps, a USB Type-C charging cable and the ever famous Steam Crave sticker.

There’s also an 18650 battery sleeve which I somehow didn’t have in the above picture:

A closer look at the various spare screws included:

The Screen

The screen is a 0.69 inch OLED which displays in black and white only and is situated above the USB Type-C charging port. It shows a battery symbol which empties as the battery depletes, the current ohm resistance of the installed coil, a 4 digit puff counter, the power setting and the currently selected output mode. There is no brightness setting for this screen but it is easy to see anyway with it being black & white. While firing and for 3 seconds after, the screen will display the length of time the fire button was held down for.

The Mod

The mod itself is a very compact, ergonomic shaped SBS style mod that fits very nicely in the hand. We have ‘STEAM CRAVE’ engraved on one side and ‘HADRON LITE’ engraved on the other:

The fire button is located up top set at an angle:

On the front at the bottom below the screen sits the in-built USB Type-C charging port. This can be handy to charge in a hurry but it’s always recommended to use an external charger for your batteries:

A little less than halfway down the mod sits the 25mm 510 plate with a spring loaded, gold plated 510 pin in the centre:

Here we can see some thermal cooling holes for the battery chamber:

On the bottom we have the up/down adjustment buttons and the circular threaded battery cap with the usual safety certificates in between:

Installing the battery:

The threaded battery cap has thermal cooling holes and 2 half moon shaped indents which leave a strip in the middle to hold on to to screw it in or remove it.

The underside of the battery cap has no battery polarity information…

…but it is clearly marked on the inside of the battery compartment:

The mod has support for 18650 batteries as well as both 20700 and 21700. For this review I used a 21700.


The Steam Crave Hadron Lite SBS Mod is very easy to use with a simple menu system which is navigated using the fire button up top and the up/down selector buttons on the bottom. 5 rapid clicks of the fire button will power the mod on or off. When powering the mod on, you will be greeted by the words ‘Steam Crave’ on the screen before arriving at the menu screen. Holding the fire button and ‘-’ buttons for 2 seconds will lock or unlock the up/down buttons to prevent accidental use but the fire button will still work. 3 rapid clicks of the fire button will switch the mod through it’s available output modes.
To reset the puff counter, hold the fire button and ‘+’ together for 2 seconds and the screen will display: PUFF CLEAR: YES/NO, you then select yes or no and hold the fire button for 2 seconds to confirm your selection.
When in Temperature control mode, using the ‘+’ and ‘-’ buttons on the bottom will alter the power output for the selected mode. While using one of the 3 TC modes, pressing the fire button and both the ‘+’ and ‘-’ buttons all at once will switch the temperature reading from Celsius to Fahrenheit.


During testing of the Steam Crave Hadron Lite SBS Mod I tried all the various power modes which all worked as expected but I mostly used TC mode set to SS to suit the stainless steel coils I was using. A setting of around 200-230C was the preferred temperature for my preference and it worked just fine.
The mod feels very sturdy and solid in the hand. There is a bit of rattle from the fire button when the mod is moved quickly but it’s no deal breaker for me. The menu system is simple enough to navigate and use. I found no issues with the mod at all during testing although there were a couple of small points that could be improved, in my opinion. The battery cap can be a little awkward to screw in or out due to the recessed design and may have been better with a small fold out handle to turn it similar to the battery cap on the Lost Vape Grus. My other niggle is that this is also available in a combo kit with the Steam Crave Aromamizer Supreme v3 however the Supreme v3 will only fit on this mod while it has the 6ml straight glass fitted. It will not fit the mod with the 7ml bubble glass installed.

The Steam Crave Hadron Lite SBS Mod has been a very nice mod to use. I love its small size and its easy to use menu system. The different modes all seem to work as intended and the TC mode seems quite good. The 100w maximum output is plenty enough for most tanks that will be used on it and has been plenty for me. I’ve really enjoyed using it and it has found a permanent spot in my daily setups. The inclusion of extras that aren’t really necessary like the battery wraps etc, just add to the appeal of an already great mod.

Thanks go out again to Joyi from Sourcemore for supplying me with the mod for the purpose of this review.
