Lost Vape - Orion Q Pod System Review

The Lost Vape Orion Q pod kit is an ultra-fast successor to the original that has been extremely successful. Is the hunt for an affordable, high-performance pod kit over with the arrival of the Q as part of the Quest? It's fair to say that the original Lost Vape Orion Go was expensive for a pod kit, mostly due to the DNA Go chip being included. This new version has a base chip that is reduced to a maximum of about 17w while "capable" of firing up to 40w and there is no way around that.

Design

The Orion Q is a well-designed high-quality pod device. It has some weight on it, but its portability is not affected by this. It's a rectangular pod with a framework of stainless steel and panels of carbon fibre. The Quest weighs about 85 grams, with its thick plastic pod and its dimensions are 93 mm x 37 mm x 13.5 mm. The pod features dual airflow at the base of the patented tip, adjustable via a knurled ring, as well as a filler hole at the top of the pod for a screw cap. The pod filling is pretty easy. You can practically pour the e-juice out, but since the pods contain a lot of cotton, I recommend waiting for the pods to saturate completely for at least 15 minutes.

Performance

The Orion Q's performance is good and I enjoy using it, but it isn't as simple as it sounds. Although the pod produces a quiet vape, some pods have too much cotton in the coil so it requires a longer priming time before the coil breaks in. It does vape well, but it gets too hot sometimes, especially with chain vaping. Note also that on the Orion GO, the Q-Pods work, but you have to go to Escribe and play with the settings.

Flavour Production

As for flavour, I felt it took a little longer to prime - I think this may be due to the amount of cotton in the coil. Seriously, I recommend a much longer priming time than you might think - let it sit for at least 10 minutes after you fill a new pod before you vape it. As for the vapour, it's very good, although I'm not sure you'll win a cloud competition.

Battery Life

The micro USB port is well positioned (unlike the GO), but it is only for charging. The bottom port, curiously positioned in the GO, is also for firmware updates and use of Escribe. The light turns blue when charging is done (so don't wait for it to go out). All in all, the Q's battery life is a plus if you're looking for a small handheld device that will last. The charging status is shown in three colours by a small LED situated just above the micro-USB port:

Blue: 64-100%
Purple: 18-64%.
Red: 0-17%.

Verdict

The Q is a solid purchase for half of the cost of the GO. The Q is better than most pod systems on the market. I hope the cotton in the pods is reduced by Lost Vape, because that's the only thing I think hurts the quality of the vape. But even with that, in terms of long battery life, high quality construction, and design, the Q is hard to beat. It doesn't have all the electronic features of the GO, but not everyone needs or wants all that, especially for the high cost.
