The Lost Vape Grus review, and is it a bird a plane or a super sexy vape device?

It turns out a Grus is some kind of bird from the crane family, so calling a device ‘Grus’ makes absolutely no sense! But hey, this is vaping and the world of vaping is vast and spectacular.

Lost Vape Grus review

Lost Vape make very good devices, particularly known for high quality and not as well known for tanks and rebuildables.

The Orion range of pod systems always come to mind when I think of Lost Vape but most recently, the Lost Vape Centaurus DNA250c is what really comes to mind.

A fabulous dual battery device which is very high quality and although its over the £100 mark, its definitely worth the money in my opinion.

Single battery devices however are on a slight rise, especially with the use of a single 21700 battery, generally meaning higher wattage, and better battery life.

Lets crack on and try out the Lost Vape Grus 100w Mod.

What Can We Expect From The LostVape Grus 100w Mod?

The Lost Vape Grus mod has pretty much all the features you could expect or want from a single battery device along with coming in a number of modern, and classic styles.

Housing a battery as large as a 21700 does mean you compensate on portability but with a Zinc Alloy frame, USB Type-C Charge port, a large colour OLED display and a large enough 510 plate on top to fit a 30mm atomiser.

I’m pretty sure the Grus will suit a lot of different vapers.

Lost Vape Grus 100w Design and Build Quality

I received the Black Carbon Fibre version of the Lost Vape Grus.

The satin black finish is nice and smooth and fairly scratch resistant, and on either side of the device is a slim panel which in my case is real carbon fibre.

Surprisingly the 2 side panels are machined so well, when you run your finger across them you can barely feel the join between the black frame and the carbon fibre panels.

I’m really impressed with the finish and quality of build with this device.

Lost Vape Grus 100w In The Hand

The Grus is quite tall for a single battery mod, but more surprising is the weight.

It isn’t heavy, but its ‘weighty’ and solid in the hand.

Lost Vape Grus display

As both a thumb, or finger firer the Lost Vape Grus works very well and fits comfortably in the hand mostly thanks to the curvature of the device.

On the one side is a clean smooth curve, and on the other curved end is the display, which is also curved very cleverly to blend into the device and sits nice and flush.

Lost Vape Grus 100w Display

An interesting slightly curved display with the Grus, which means if you don’t look at the display face-on, it almost feels like you’re looking into a fish tank.

However, the display is bright, clear and also has a nice option to change the display colour.

LostVape Grus Basic Operation

There are 3 buttons to worry about along with the fire button.

Interestingly, the Grus doesn’t have a main menu as such, so all changes are made within the one screen.

Here’s the basic steps for operation:

  • Device On – 5 click of Fire Button
  • Device Off – 5 Clicks of Fire button, then Centre Button
  • Change Power Mode – 1 Click of Centre button highlights Power Mode
  • Up Button – Voltage/Wattage/Temperature Up
  • Down Button – Voltage/Wattage/Temperature  Down
  • Up & Centre Button – Locks adjustment buttons. Will Still fire.
  • Press & Hold Centre Button – Change display colour.

Lost Vape Grus Battery Housing

The Grus uses what I would call the traditional threaded battery cap with a small latch that you can lift and unscrew the cap to access the battery housing.

There are also 3 small holes in the cap for battery venting.

But personally, I still think its one of the best ways to house a battery, more because it ensures a tight connection and there is nothing that concerns me more than loose connections…

Being an electrician, I can promise you a loose connection causes more problems than you could imagine.

Just ask one of the largest retailers in the UK who had 5 hours of downtime, costing them millions just because of a loose connection.

Yep…I was the fool who had to fix it and explain to the directors there was no quick fix.

How Does The Lost Vape Grus Perform?

I’ve made as much use of the large diameter 510 plate on top of the Lost Vape Grus by using everything from the usual 24/25mm RDA’s to one of my favourite 28mm RTA’s, the Oumier Bulk RTA.

Personally, I feel this device is better suited for larger atomizers, as much as it works absolutely fine with a 24 or 25mm tank or dripper, its really best suited for 28-30mm tanks and RDA’s.

But this is where it gets tricky because for the most part, its fairly normal to build lower with a larger diameter atomizer which in turn requires more power to perform.

With the limited 100w output, the Grus seems to offer you a race car, with a moped engine, but for the most part, 100 watts is plenty. It’s just for some who may like to vape at over 100 watts every day, they just wont get the power they need.

Even if a maximum of 100 watts is enough, a single 21700 battery wont last very long when used at 100 watts.


With regards to power output, the Lost Vape Grus hits as well as you would hope.

You may not get 100 watts out of the Grus for long, but on a fully charged battery it does feel like it comfortably hits 100 watts.

Can the Lost Vape Grus Be practical?

For a single battery device, the Lost Vape Grus is fairly large, and fairly heavy but its still streamlined enough and certainly tough enough to be used day to day.

I’d be more concerned about the 6.5ml Bubble glass on my 28mm tank than any concerns I might have about damaging the device.

510 plate

The ability to house a 21700 battery certainly helps with battery life, if you tend to vape at around 50-60 watts each day, you’ll most likely find a 21700 battery will last you a day or there abouts. Its just about enough for me, with the occasional change of battery mid-evening.

There is of course a USB Type-C Port for a decent 2amp charge so fast charging on the go is possible if you need.

Can the Lost Vape Grus be used at work?

Using the Grus at work isn’t like carrying a pod system around in your pocket that’s for sure! But its certainly easier to lug around and use than a larger dual 1865 device.

Again the concern boils down to battery life.

Are you happy to carry spare batteries especially if you a: Vape a lot, b: Vape at a high wattage. If this is no problem then the Grus is a good option for day to day work life.


  • Superb Finish
  • Feels well made
  • Clear Display
  • Easy navigation
  • Houses a 30mm atty no problem


  • Limited in wattage output
  • Large 510 plate for big atties, but output lets it down
  • Battery Cap may annoy some.

Final Review Verdict

If a single 21700 device is what you’re looking for, I don’t think you could go wrong with the Lost Vape Grus.

Firstly its build quality and general finish is top notch and feels extremely premium.

Off the top of my head, the one device I would compare this to would be the Dovpo Odin 100.

The awesome Kevin Jeffrey gave the Odin 100 a serious 9.4/10 so you should definitely consider taking a look at that, if a single 21700 device is what you’re after.

Hey Folks. Im Gaz, The Flat-cap Vaper. I’m 35, married with 3 kids and I just love Flatcap's and Vaping! I started my e-cigarette journey in 2014 when I entered my local vape shop and got so well looked after, I ditched my 10 year habit of 15 roll-ups a day within 48hrs. Following on from this, my Vaping journey began. I started a Youtube Channel at the beginning of 2019 and so far has had over 500,000+ views. I quickly upgraded my device and that’s when my geeky side took over and I began to experiment with making my own liquid, building my own coils and even my own mods! As a trained electrician I suppose ohms, wattage and voltage runs through my veins so Vaping has become my hobby and a passion that I want to share with everyone.


  1. I’ve been using a Lost Grus Mod for nearly a year now and I’ve yet to find a fault. I used to use Smok mods for Vaping however after so many times their single battery mods just weren’t good! So I figured why keep spending money on Mods that don’t last, that’s when I went ahead and bought what I thought was the best “High In” I could afford. Lost Grus Mod is super easy to use, very easy to navigate through the interface, so easy even someone like me who’s not tech savvy can use!! As for battery life, I use 3 different types, I have 2 18650’s, 2 21700’s and a ijoy 20700. I rotate my batteries just for longevity. I get a days use of the homrun 21700’s 3/4 day out of the rest, so I’m very pleased with the battery life I get and I vape a bunch throughout the day into the night. Disabled due to cancer all I have to do is watch tv and Vape…😂

  2. I just picked one of these up today for $35usd and even if I had paid normal price, I would have been pleased. I’m coming from a DNA75 mod so My expectations weren’t that high though. But if the electronics crap out on this, you can simply buy a new DNA100c PCB and it swaps right into the GRUS. Even shares most screw hole locations to secure the board. The only minus is it turns out there are two mods called GRUS. The kit GRUS has a much better display, upgraded Quest 2 chip, and can be software upgraded. I bought this thinking the mod was just the same as the kit but without the tank. Whoops.

  3. I can’t for the life of me get this mod to go over 44 watts even when I set the power at higher temps. I’ve set all other settings at its highest temps.
