Today I’m taking a look at the new Lost Vape Orion Bar 10000 disposable vapes.

Please note: This product is not available in the UK as it doesn’t meet TPD regulations. So only available to readers outside TPD regulated countries.

Important. This review is based on the E-liquid flavours and not device functionality.

Lost Vape Orion Bar disposable vapesMany vapers will have heard of Lost Vape.

That’s not too surprising since they’ve been on the vape scene for almost a decade now. Plenty of time to manufacture reputable devices such as the Thelema Quest 200W box Mod, Centaurus Q80 Pod Mod or the Ursa Nano Pod kit.

So it’s safe to say Lost Vape have cemented their place alongside other leading vape manufacturers, constantly delivering unique and sometimes high end devices designed with functionality and ease of use in mind.

Lost Vape LogoOver the last year or so that ease of use has extended with Lost Vape venturing into the disposable vape market.

The Lost Vape Orion Bar 7500 has been one such example. With a puff count of 7,500 it’s hardly your traditional disposable but what it does do is represent excellent bang for your buck.

Some would even go as far as to suggest it’s a hybrid device – crossing the boundaries of disposable into basic pod starter kits.

The Orion Bar 10000 is the next logical step. Lost Vape never has a penchant for looking back, only to develop while moving forwards.

So let’s see what’s on offer shall we?

What Can We Expect From the Lost Vape Orion Bar 10000 Disposable Vape?

Quite a bit more than the Orion Bar 7500.

For a start we get 25% more puffs, largely due to the whooping 20ml of E-liquid sloshing around inside. 10K puffs represents a lot of vaping time.

With 50mg of salt nicotine included I only hope I make it over the finishing line! lol

The eager beaver among you will already have sussed out that these specs are hardly TPD compliant. Hence the disclaimer at the head of this review.

So the integrated 650mAh battery powers a modest 1.0ohm mesh coil and when that power supply fails, type C USB charging comes to the rescue.

Before you ask, No. A charging cable has not been included.


This is where the Orion Bar 10000 really does differ from its predecessor.

As expected, the device relies on auto draw for functionality but it’s what’s happening during this period that really makes for a change.

I’ve seen disposables that offer coloured LEDs to reflect current battery and E-liquid levels in higher juice carrying devices but Lost Vape have taken it one step further.

Display on the Lost Vape Orion Bar disposable We get an LCD readout in numerical percentages! If that wasn’t innovative enough it all happens during and after the vape.

  • Inhale to view current battery strength in a percentage between 0 – 100%
  • Wait a few seconds to view current E-liquid levels in a percentage between 0 – 100%

And don’t worry. You’re given more than enough time to view the levels of both after inhaling.

A simple yet brilliant idea and if that’s not blurring the lines between a disposable and pod starter kit I don’t know what is!

Since these disposables are 50mg you’ll excuse me if I keep that as wide open as possible.

USB and airflow adjustability on Lost Vape Orion Bar disposableForgivable on this occasion, wouldn’t you say. lol

One look at the mouthpiece and the airflow opening does show how restrictive the vape is regardless of adjustability.

Clearly designed for a MTL (Mouth To Lung) vape.

So as they, I’m just going to have to ‘suck it up buttercup’ anyway! Quite literally..

Type C USB Charging

The Lost Vape Orion Bar 10000 disposable alas does not have “pass through” charging – meaning you cannot vape whilst charging.

  • Using a USB type C cable, connect the small end into the USB port on the disposable
  • Charging the Lost Vape Orion Bar disposableConnect the large end of the cable into a suitable USB outlet

When it’s time to recharge the battery, the screen will flash five times displaying an odd cypher that reads TI88. Or that’s what it looks like. Vaping will cease until the battery is fully topped up.

Whilst charging, the screen will display current battery strength in 5% increments.

I was slightly concerned how it hung at 95% for an extended period but the disposable was never warm to the touch.

Just one of those odd quirks, I guess.

After 75 minutes the disposable was fully charged. The display will read 100% for a short period of time before switching off.

Ok. So I’ve been sent Kiwi Passion fruit Guava, Raspberry Sour Apple, Peach Mango Watermelon, Strawberry Summertime, Grape Burst and Blue Razz Ice for the purposes of review.

Lush Ice, Pineapple Lemonade, Miami Mint and Strawberry Chew are also available.

Lost Vape Orion Bar 10k parametersI’d like to thank Lost Vape for sending these six over. It’s very much appreciated.

Ok. Let’s see what this little lot are like.

As always, remember that flavour is subjective. I don’t like Grape or Blueberry in disposable vapes. It doesn’t mean that you won’t, does it.

Kiwi Passion Fruit Guava

Kiwi Passion fruit GuavaLost Vape Says:

A tropical trio that’ll whisk you away to an island paradise.

I Say:

It’s very, very fruity and there’s a whole lotta taste going on with Kiwi Passion Fruit Guava.

There’s definitely a medley of Summer fruits on offer and I’d say that Guava is the star player here.

The blending of flavour is quite tightly bunched so it’s quite difficult to pick out the Passion Fruit. Kiwi is present by it’s usual raspy clutch on the throat.

.. Or could that be the 50mg salt nicotine? lol

It’s a tropical taste and I also feel there’s a hint of Grapefruit and maybe a few back notes of Pineapple thrown in.

I’m also inclined to suggest the inclusion of Blueberry but that’s only because the exhale occasionally alters to bring out a few “ammonia moments” if you know what I mean.

The cooling agent does the trick but just be aware that if you are chain vaping it’s likely to create mild irritation to the throat.

Overall a pleasant and certainly tasty enough vape. Full of fruity goodness and enough to hold the interest.

Raspberry Sour Apple

Raspberry Sour AppleLost Vape Says:

A zesty combination of raspberries and sour apples.

I Say:

The aroma test with the mouthpiece strongly suggest Apple to be the stand out flavour in this one.

The actual vape itself is a concentrated fusion of Summer favourites where Raspberry is actually just as prominent as the Apple.

The exhale is something of an oddity though. The crisp, clean and quite natural taste of Apples is offset by a sweet and candy like version of Raspberry.

The two don’t quite strike the right kind of balance. They’re both flavoursome enough and you’ll get plenty of that with each vape but the two fruits seem to clash rather than blend.

It does all lead to a rather sweet affair – I’ve no issue with that. I’m just not entirely convinced by the end product.

Maybe Raspberry Sour Apple is a little bit too concentrated or maybe it’s the inherent sourness of the experience that’s throwing me off.

I don’t even think the cooling agent does that much to alter my opinion. It’s another one of those flavour profiles where it comes across detached from the flavour. More of a distraction than a complement.

Having said all this, if you’re into excessive sweetness from your vapes and like both fruits then give it a try.

As I said, were the blending better (less of the Raspberry) it could have been awesome.

Peach Mango Watermelon

Peach Mango WatermelonLost Vape Says:

Dive into a fruity nirvana with this succulent blend.

I Say:

Now I do like what Lost Vape have done with this.

It’s very rare to find flavour complexity of this nature in a disposable vape but that’s exactly what you can expect from Peach Mango Watermelon.

Where to begin..

Well it starts with an ice cold inhale with a modest build up of sweetness that subsequently envelops the exhale – but in a good, effective way.

That exhale contains every aspect of the flavour description. I kid ye not!

So much so that not one fruit over rides another. Brilliant stuff!

The smell test hints of a natural Watermelon. That’s not quite what we get on the way out but it’s distinct enough. Refreshing enough.

Peach is there from the offset, helping to soften and create a smooth exhale. I’m glad it wasn’t over used – it allows the taste of Mango to push through the centre, backing up the trio.

It’s got to be my taste buds but I also get sub notes of Coconut for some, strange reason. Or it could be the result of this classy blending. A by product, if you like.

Whichever way I look at it, Peach Mango Watermelon is an awesome tasting vape. Quite unique in the way each fruit has been added. To harmonise perfectly with each other.

Ok. It’s not the most natural tasting vape in the world but there’s more than enough going on to stimulate the taste sensors.

Strawberry Summertime

Strawberry SummertimeLost Vape Says:

Relive those summer memories with every puff.

I Say:

When reading the name of this one I was instantly thinking of a solo Strawberry vape. With maybe just a dash of Ice to perhaps enhance proceedings.

Instead we get a nice medley of fruits – bonus!

In fact I’d be hard pushed to suggest Strawberry is even the leading flavour here. It kind of sits inside a circle. With Orange to the left and Lemon on the right – if that actually makes sense! lol

Almost a sandwiching effect.

What we get of the Strawberry hasn’t been sent from Mother Nature. It does have that chewy sweet kind of taste. Almost like a gummy bear but the Orange and Lemon are a different story altogether.

Fresh, sour, tangy and citric. Those elements cocoon the Strawberry yet still manage to complement the overall taste experience.

Personally it’s the Lemon that works the best for me. It’s natural tasting to the point of being mouth watering.

The zest of Oranges is omnipresent throughout which is another bonus if you ask me.

You’ll also be getting sugar lips towards the end of the vape as an added extra.

Combine all this with an opening cold blast on the inhale and we really do have a Strawberry Summer to celebrate.

Great work!

Grape Burst

Grape BurstLost Vape Says:

Relish the explosion of sweet and tangy grape goodness.

I Say:

Grape vapes and I don’t usually get along very well, unfortunately. That’s never a reflection on flavour quality or consistency it’s just one of those things.

So whenever another one comes along I’m always looking to see if the company has put a different slant on things.

In the case of Lost Vape and Grape Burst I’m afraid to say they haven’t, really.

The inhale is cold but very sweet with a tangy edge while the exhale is just insane when it comes to flavour properties.

It’s far from the worst version I’ve encountered and thankfully does seem to lack some of those ‘sulphuric’ qualities but overall I still find it rather cringeworthy.

Think Parma Violet sweets on overdrive. Candy like but with an excess of sweetness.

Those nasty, sulphuric notes generally emerge towards the end of the exhale but luckily are omitted in Grape Burst.

Also think Burst. That part of the name. You certainly will get a flavour burst and it’s very consistent throughout. It holds up well.

In fact, the cooling agent works very effectively in this one. It complements rather than amplifies the taste.

It’s another one of those vapes you’ll probably enjoy if you have a sweet tooth.

So what it loses out on for not liking the profile, it gains on flavour concentrate and consistency.

Blue Razz Ice

Blue Razz IceLost Vape Says:

Dive into a world of blue raspberry with an icy kick.

I Say:

Very pleasant. Cool, refreshing and with flavour to boot.

The icy cold inhale is the catalyst for what follows with Blue Razz Ice and as you might imagine, that ice cold blast rips into the ‘ole tonsils quite nicely.

I say nicely because this is just what any Blue Razz Ice vape should be offering.

You really do get the feeling of a slushy drink – mouth watering and ideal for those blistering hot Summer days.

The Raspberry even contains a syrup like quality. Either that or too much concentrate was used! Either way, it really doesn’t matter because the effect is bob on.

So a mixture of sweet, sour and tangy all play host to that candy like Raspberry.

Like I said, very pleasant and a treat for the ‘ole taste buds for sure.

You can’t put a good vape down and Blue Razz Ice happens to be one.

Battery Performance and Total Number of Puffs

The factory charge lasted for 20 hours in total, spread out over the course of two days vaping. And I vape quite a lot.

During this time I’d vaped 40% of the E-liquid.

The device lasted just over 22 hours from the first USB charge. A slight improvement over factory charge and again, I’d vaped around 40% of the E-liquid.

The second charge proved to be the last with another 8 hours vaping before the E-liquid ran dry. A total of fifty hours spread across 5 days of continuous use.

With my vaping habits that worked out to be in the region of 3,600 puffs. Somewhat short of the figure suggested.

I think the battery itself did a remarkable job. The average user will probably go two days before needing to recharge the device and the Orion Bar 10K is likely to last them anything in the region of a week or more.


I know most disposables are designed for MTL vaping. But when airflow adjustability is included I expect a little bit of wriggle room and search out my preferred style of vaping.

Some of you may know it’s a RDL (Restrictive Direct Lung) style.

It’s possible with the Orion Bar 10000 with the airflow wide open. It does come with a caveat, though and that’s a lack of sensitivity with the auto draw. At times it just wouldn’t work at all.

No flavour, no vapour and no display. So rule out maximum airflow if you’re a RDL fan.

It does work much better when reduced down by a small fraction but then becomes a tad  tight. At the same time it’s too loose for a MTL vape.

Just sayin’

Push the slider to around mid position for the best MTL vape. Any further and you’re literally wasting your breath!

I couldn’t fault vapour production. Decent at all times and probably the one solid throughout all stages of testing.

Final Review Verdict

The display is an awesome idea and does add another degree of reassurance.

It is viewable in direct sunlight but certainly not the best. More often than not you’ll be moving into shaded areas to check it.

But there are issues with functionality.

Firstly, the display hangs at 95% during the charge process. In other words much longer than other stages of recharge. Of course it does reach 100% but the delay did cause me some anxiety as to how this was impacting the actual battery.

It also does the same thing during use. Always happening at around 50% drain.

Just as importantly I have to mention flavour.

It takes a complete nose dive once 50% of the E-liquid has been vaped. I have to be honest – it’s not that impressive for the remainder of use.

By the time levels had dropped to 20% I’d pretty much had enough. The flavour was terrible by then. More of an ‘echo’ of what had been. The vapour and cooling qualities are the last thing to go.

I fully tested three disposables before coming to these conclusions.

So the Lost Vape Orion Bar doesn’t live up to expectations. Either with the functionality or the performance.

Maybe it needs a little more work. A few tweaks here and there and we can have flavour consistency from start to finish.

As things stand the Orion Bar 10K just isn’t reliable enough to hold my attention for more than a few days.

lost-vape-orion-bar-10000-reviewThe battery/E-liquid percentage readout, although flawed is an excellent idea. Quite possibly the best way forwards with disposables offering this number of puffs. However, performance in terms of flavour consistency isn't quite there. I only really enjoyed vaping for the first 24 hours of use. After this it really did start to bottom out. So as things stand the Lost Vape Orion Bar is good for 10ml of E-liquid. Of course that's just my own honest opinion but that's what you're here for isn't it.
