When for the first time I touched some details, I immediately thought of the Ursa as the best creation of 2020 as regards the so-called universal devices (pod + mod) and the impression I got from it is of great robustness.
The frame is entirely built in zinc alloy, the stainless steel parts are the additional ones, that is: the compartment / battery cap, the base / airflow and the 510 adapter with respective super reliable coupling system.
With so many metal parts the weight of the Ursa goes from 153gr when empty to 173gr (pod version) to 193gr with 510 adapter, they are not few! However, even with a 21700 cell inserted, its portability remains excellent and not at all tiring, thanks to a form factor guessed in the smallest details, strongly inspired by that of the previous Grus Quest.
The design is a set of convexities, different materials, curves, bevels, grooves without sharp edges and lively lines that are always connected to each other in a sweet and functional way ensuring great ergonomics and tactile pleasure during the vape.
Lost Vape URSA Quest 100W how it’s made:
This sample is part of the color choice category called “SS Ukiran Leather” by Lost Vape.
The side view showcases the lively design of the Ursa with a thick leather insert in the center, with a high color density, with a very pronounced surface roughness. The texture and design of the leather insert vary from panel to panel.
The inscription “Ursa Quest” laser engraved and is placed vertically downwards. The writing on the other side (in the same position) is that of the Brand (Lost Vape).
The front and rear side are very interesting, at the top there are two opposing metal buttons that are used to operate the robust coupling / release mechanism of the pod and its accessories.
On the front side in a slightly recessed position there are the square-shaped fire button, the 0.96 “color oled screen, the Up / down adjustment keys with the Mode key in the center for quick access to the menu functions.
* The keys are all metallic with good tactile feedback.
The rear area under the eject button is completely smooth, the slightly rounded surfaces of both narrow sides favor the grip on the mod.
The Pod compartment in my view is a work of art, on the bottom there is the spring-loaded contact pin and on the sides there are two metal spurs operated by the external keys I mentioned earlier, this coupling system / release for the cartridge and for additional 510 module is the most robust, stable and well-made solution that I have ever seen on these systems, the “Voltage Drop” is zeroed. Congratulations Lost Vape you won!
The 510 adapter can even be dismantled for any repairs, on the sides there are two large hooking loops, the 510 adapter it has a diameter of 31mm and a weight of 43gr! The pin is gold plated and is spring loaded.
The shape of the support base of the Ursa gives it great stability, on this surface there are three vent holes for the cell, the C E mark, the disposal logo and the words “Designed and Manufactured by Lost Vape Ltd” are shown. Also on this surface we find four torx screws and the cap (with handle) to access the compartment / battery.
Lost Vape Ursa can use different types of cells (18650-20700-21700) for the 18650 an adapter is available in the kit.
Ursa Pod System:
It involves the use of two different cartridges, both made of PCTG with replaceable drip-tip and refill in a comfortable lateral / high position.
The 7ml Ursa Pro Pod Cartridge uses a drip Tip 810 and is designed to house the new UB Pro Coil series and the new RBA Ursa Pro.
The 6ml Ursa Ultra Cartridge uses a 510 drip tip and is designed to accommodate all the UB coil series and the UB RBA base.
Both cartridges screw onto a special and sturdy AFC steel ring.
UB Pro Coil Range:
At the moment there are two types of UB Pro oversized coils for the 7ml UB Pro cartridge and they are:
– Mesh-Coil UB Pro P1 NI80 from 0.15Ω with Range 70-90W
– Mesh-Coil UB M4 from 0.2Ω Range 40-60W usable with temperature control in a range of 260-290 ° C and 500-550 ° F.
UB Coil Range:
The UB coil series available for the 6ml UB cartridge is very complete:
– UB M4 Mesh-Coil 0.2Ω
Coil resistance: 0.2Ω mesh coil
Suitable for DL
– UB M3 Mesh-Coil 0.15Ω
Coil resistance: 0.15Ω mesh coil
Suitable for DL
– UB M1 Mesh-Coil 0.3Ω
Coil resistance: 0.3Ω mesh coil
Suitable for DL
– UB M2 Mesh-Coil 0.6Ω
Coil resistance: 0.6Ω Mesh Coil
Suitable for DL
– UB MTL Coil 1.0Ω
Coil resistance: 1.0Ω Regular Coil
Suitable for MTL
– UB RBA Deck
Resistance Range: 0.15-3.0Ω
Deck RBA UB Pro:
Kindly Lost vape sent me the RBA kit (sold separately) for my test and I thank them.
the RBA kit includes:
– 1 Postless RBA Deck
– 1 Screwable Chimney
– 1 510 adapter
– 2 Cotton laces
– 2 Ø3mm 0.3Ω Complex Coils
– 3 replacement O’ring
– 4 tightening screws.
* Note: I couldn’t find any screwdriver supplied, I’m sure Lost Vape will put it in the kit when it goes on sale.
RBA UB Pro Build:
This new postless deck for the RBA URSA is quite small in size, however it is not difficult to rebuild, the only difficulty is the tiny screws to tighten the legs (good eyesight required).
The Ø2mm under-coil hole suggests a type of vape that is not too open, we will see later.
Before regenerating simply screw the 510 adapter to the RBA and screw it onto the mod for a more comfortable operation.
The legs fit comfortably from the top, I recommend cutting them to 5mm in length before inserting them.
I inserted the cotton, for the cut I took reference by folding it on the deck and cutting it slightly before the end of the buttonholes that must accommodate it.
I then screwed on the bell and moistened the cotton with my 70/30 tropical liquid.
How the mod works:
– Power on / off: Press the fire button 5 times in a row.
– Lock / Unlock: Press the (+) and (-) keys simultaneously
With the mod Unlocked, press the (+) and (-) keys to scroll through the options, to select press the Mode key, to confirm the choice press the fire key.
With Power selected, press the Mode button to change mode, with the (+) and (-) buttons choose between (POWER, TC-SS904, TC-SS316, TC-TI, TC-NI, VPC, VOLTAGE, BYPASS ).
Temperature control mode:
The temperature and wattage can be adjusted under SS904, SS316, TI.
The temperature value can be changed between 100 ° C and 315 ° C, 200 ° F and 600 ° F, the power can be set between 5.0-100 W.
* SS904 mode is specially designed for UB Pro P3 coil which is built with SS904 wire.
VPC mode is a custom curve output mode. The output power value can be changed every 0.5 seconds within 4 seconds from 5 to 100W.
Pod Mode / Mod Switching:
The power output is slightly different between Pod and Mod modes.
The Pod mode theme is shown in blue color, the selected Mod mode is shown in orange color.
User Settings Switching:
There are 4 control options for user settings in Pod / Mod mode.
3) Power / voltage
4) Boost level or Temperature
3 different separate user settings can be stored for Pod mode and Mod mode.
To overwrite the current user setting, select the user you want to overwrite, press the Select button once, and then press and hold the Select button for two seconds.
Ursa Quest Multi supports the Boost functionality in power mode to increase / decrease the pre-hit (Soft, Norm, Hard).
It allows you to vape automatically, the power decreases as the battery drops, with the Bypass function activated it is not possible to use the “Boost” function.
Puff time display and puff count reset:
1) The Puff Time is displayed for 2 seconds after activation (fire).
2) Press the Select button to reset or retrieve the puff count when the PUFF count is highlighted.
Screen brightness adjustment:

To return to the main interface
The device has a built-in DC 5V USB type port, powered by a Type-C cable.
While charging the battery icon will start to animate, once the charge is complete it stops. (Battery Voltage 4.18V).
Protections and warnings:
Too Hot: The device will shut down when the indoor temperature is above 85 ° C. Until the temperature returns to 65 ° C.
Cut Off: Over 10s, the output will be automatically cut off and the screen shows “Over 10s” when you vape over 10s continuously
This kit allows the use of most atomizers on the market with a useful diameter of 31mm, I tried to install atomizers with a diameter of 27-28mm and even smaller ones up to 25mm, no one clashes. The mod has a good speed to puff, it seems to me that it also manages the batteries very well.
– Mesh-Coil UB M4 0.2Ω with 40-60W Range:
I had already tried it with the Thelema 80W, but I wanted to see how it performed when paired with the 6ml UB cartridge with Drip-Tip 510 (replaceable).
I therefore used the same tropical liquid as the previous test (Thelema).
The coil as expected has the same good yield, on the Thelema I use it with open air-flow at 45 / 50W, with the Ursa it is sufficient to open the AFC to 50%, opening it more does not have major improvements.
The body of the steam is remarkable, the puff is soft and silent, you can reach 60W (maximum limit of the coil) without showing any signs of failure.
– Mesh-Coil UB Pro P1 NI80 from 0.15Ω Range 70-90W:
This new generation Coil must be combined with the 7ml UB Pro cartridge with the Drip-Tip 810 (replaceable).
In this case the AFC can be used at 100% Starting from 70W (minimum range), the reactivity to the Fire is fast, the Puff is quite noisy with the AFC ring completely open, by choking the AFC the noise is attenuated and improves the yield aromatic.
From 80 to 90W with AFC wide open you undoubtedly get a great yield of flavor and a lot of vapor emission, the power supply seems constant and the coil does not show to suffer from the highest powers.
– Coil UB Pro SS904 from 0.3Ω Range 60-70W:
Lost Vape also sent me this very interesting Mesh-Coil to be used in VW or in TC / SS904 with settings between 260-290 ° C and 500-550 ° F.
The first impressions beyond the mode used are those of a balanced Coil, with a drier Puff, the flavor seems to me to be very accentuated the sugary part of the liquid.
The initial power delivery is certainly faster in VW mode, in TC you feel a greater linearity of the Puff, I am not a TC expert, I rarely use it, however I think it is a good experience, I was missing it.
I assume that with the TC you can also have a longer duration of the coil itself.
RBA UB Pro:
I was happy with the supplied coil, I installed it without knowing what it was, I only know that it has a diameter of Ø3mm and turns out to be 0.3Ω.
I started using it at 30W and since its liquid supply is very good, I ended up using it at 40W without any inconvenience.
The 7ml of liquid that contains the UB Pro cartridge allow long vaping sessions, the consumption of liquid does not seem excessive to me, a symptom of a good yield.
Some small difficulties with small screws can be encountered during the coil build, however it seems to me a good very balanced RBA for a good flavor, the solution of keeping a Ø2mm hole under the coil seems to me to be guessed.
I think I have almost said everything, this universal kit (Pod + Mod) is definitely the best one out so far, it will surely be able to satisfy many people. Let’s just hope that with all these great and beautiful innovations the final price is not too high (at the moment I don’t know it).
