Ursa Nano Art Device
The Ursa Nano Art by Lost Vape is a simple pod device. It measures just under 109mm in height, 25mm in width and a depth of 15mm. It weighs just over 40g with the pod inserted and is made with PCTG.
The device has a clear (semi-opaque-coloured) body with a design panel behind it. The design on this colour device is called Pachino Art and has ‘Ursa’ down the middle on both the front and back of the device. Printed at the bottom of the design panelling is ‘Ursa Nano Art’ with ‘Lost Vape’ on the other side. This Ursa Nano Art being reviewed is the Aqua Blue colour but there are another 5 colours/designs available.
There isn’t a fire button or display screen on the Ursa Nano Art and it is literally a plug-and-play simple vape device. The pod just drops into the top and power is automatically smart set to the resistance of the coil in the pod, up to a maximum of 18W output. Then it just uses an auto-draw function on the vape. It has a built-in 800mAh battery and fast charges via the Type-C USB on the bottom of the device.
There is an LED within the bottom of the device that will light when vaping and charging. Due to the coloured PCTG on the Ursa Nano Art, it will illuminate the whole device in the colour of the kit purchased. Being regulated with the Lost Vape Quest chipset, the LED will also indicate along with any safety functions. For example when in a low battery the LED will flash 10 times, or 25 times to indicate Too Hot.
UB Mini Coils and Filling
The Ursa Nano Art device uses replaceable coils for the pod. There are 2 coils supplied in the kit which are the UB Mini Coils by Lost Vape in 1.0Ω and 0.8Ω resistance. Both of these ranges make the device perfect for mouth-to-lung vaping.
The coil simply pushes up into the middle of the bottom of the pod, making sure it is flush with the bottom plastic. At the front of the pod is a rubber grommet, simply pull this back and fill the pod with e-liquid via the fill hole. Wait 5 minutes (unless you are re-filling) for the e-liquid to saturate the coil cotton to avoid dry burning when first vaping.
The pod holds a maximum e-liquid capacity of 2.5ml and even though 50% of the pod sits in the Ursa Nano Art device, you can clearly see current e-liquid levels due to the clear body of the device and the smoked pod.
As a very simple stick-type pod kit with a low price point, the Ursa Nano Art is a decent little vape. There isn’t a display screen, fire button or adjustable airflow, but the vape it gives off is decent enough. The auto draw is quite responsive so it doesn’t feel like you are trying to suck a Melon through a straw!
The UB Mini coils are great for flavour and due to the lower wattages of MTL, I didn’t notice much condensation at all hanging around the bottom of the pod. Also zero leaks from the pod during the time I spent vaping with it.
I admit to sometimes liking a light-up vape device and think the way this lit blue on the vape was really good and also gives you an indication of the fire! The charging time was fast with the device lasting around a day of moderate vaping before needing to be plugged in.
Of course, this would be perfect for an MTL vaper to throw into a pocket if wanting something portable, but what stuck out to me, would be the appeal for a vaper looking to come away from disposables. The Ursa Nano Art has the same form factor as a disposable and is similar having no functions or wattages to set. The price for the kit I believe will be well under £10 RRP and with disposable pricing at around £5-6 with only 600 puffs that you end up throwing away, the Ursa Nano Art is a perfect switchover that will last! You also get the bonus of buying your own e-liquids to use, as opposed to using the crap that’s put in disposable vapes!
