Lost vape enter the pod arena!
The Ursa Quest Multi Kit is the latest kit from popular manufacturer Lost Vape. They gained popularity in vaping for making nice fancy mods (typically with leather or wood) and using DNA chipsets. While they have been known for more expensive high-end mods, they’ve lately gotten into the pod game, by making various pod kits like the Orion and Lyra.
The Ursa Quest keeps the style and looks of a high-end mod, but uses their own Quest chip to make this kit more affordable. This kit includes the Ursa Quest, which is a single 27100 battery mod that’s rated at 100 watts, and the Ursa Pod tank–a sub ohm pod tank that connects directly to the mod through a proprietary connection. The kit does include a 510 adapter for the mod so you can use any atomizer on it as well.
First impressions on Ursa
Unboxing this kit, was pretty impressed with the design and feel. The mod has some heft to it and feels solid in the hand, but it’s not too bulky at all. It’s a bit too tall with the 510 adapter and your own atomizer, but with the included Ursa pod tank it’s not too bad. It’s larger than most advanced pods—not by too much, but they did have to make room for a 21700 battery.
It comes in a nice box presentation and had two coils and two tanks. Not a spare tank, but one tank for each of the two coil types available. It comes with airflow control base for the pod tanks and a 510 adapter to make it usable with any of your atomizers. Overall, I we’re pretty happy with the design from the start.
Design and Build Quality
The Ursa Quest is a nicely built mod. It follows the typical designs of Lost Vape mods, which are usually classy and sleek. The frame has a matte finish to it which really makes the leather pop, and the symmetrical design makes it feel comfortable in either hand. It also feels solid and well-built, but not too heavy. It’s going to be larger than most pods for sure, but about the size of a standard 27100 single battery mod. It’s not a typical pod mod, it’s more of a sub ohm tank and mod kit.
The fire button is a basic rectangle on the front of the mod above the screen. Below the screen are the up and down buttons and between those is the menu button. Under the buttons is the USB-C port. It features a nice large and bright 0.96-inch rectangular color screen that’s clear and easy to see. The 510 pin on the adapter is great and gave me no issues with any atomizer. It’s listed at 33 mm wide and the 510 is centered, so realistically no atomizer you’d use on this mod should have overhang.
The mod is available in nine color options. There are three frame colors; SS, black, and gunmetal. Each color has an option of a Ukiran leather, Crocodile leather, or wood. The leathers all start as black and over time with usage start to reveal their colours.
The included tanks in every kit are black tinted and look okay on the mod. Branding wise, they kept it very nice and simple thankfully. There is a small Lost Vape logo on the bottom right-side of the frame and a small Ursa Quest logo on the bottom left side.
The battery door is a threaded cap, similar to the caps that we’ve seen on various Aegis mods. It worked great though with no issues. I had no problem getting batteries in and out. We used a 21700, 20700, and 18650 (the 18650 requires the use of an included adapter). There is no button rattle on this mod at all either. Overall, it’s a great looking and well-built mod.
Features and Functions
The Ursa Quest is packed with all the modes you could want from a mod and a few extras. There are two main modes; pod mode for when you are using it with the included pod, and mod mode for when you are using it with the 510 adapter. On top of that, you have Power mode (with soft, norm, and hard preheat options), and TC mode for SS904, SS316, Ti, and Ni—without a TCR adjustment option for these modes.
There are also three user profiles available, that allow you to create presets to avoid having to adjust every time you switch between modes. Adjusting is very easy in our opinion, and we didn’t see a reason to set up the profiles. But the option is there if you want it and doesn’t really get in the way if you don’t.
As far as the menu goes, it’s very simple and easy to navigate. Here is a quick rundown:
- Five clicks of the fire button to turn on and off
- Use up and down to highlight what you want to adjust on the screen
- Press the menu button to enter adjustment mode
- Use up and down to adjust it then menu to accept it
- Hold up and down to lock adjust buttons (can still fire)
- TCR and power adjustments are made after selecting the mode
The Ursa Pod Tanks overview
Ok, so let’s do a quick rundown of the tank. While it looks like it comes with one and a spare, they’re actually two separate tanks. One is the Ursa Pro Pod Tank which takes the UB Pro coil line, and the other is the Ursa Pod Tank which takes the UB coil line.
The Ursa Pro Pod Tank has a 7 ml (2ml EU) capacity and fits a 810 drip tip, while the Ursa Pod Tank has a 6 ml (2ml EU) capacity and fits a 510 drip tip. Both tanks have adjustable air via the included metal base which you use on both tanks, but the kit only comes with one. The air is easy to adjust via a metal slider and on a stopper. Both options are made for DL vaping, and closing down the airflow brings it down to a restricted DL.
The pod tanks are pretty similar to what we’ve seen from the Voopoo PnP line. It has some quirks, but it is a solid design overall. The tanks are one piece with a rubber plug to fill like most pods. The coil system is your standard plug-n-play design. To replace them, you unscrew the base from the pod tank and then pop them out from the bottom. You can’t do it with a full tank, it needs to be pretty much empty.
