Before I start going through the ins and outs of the Lost Vape Ursa Multi Kit, I need to get some things off my chest.
Its been a bloody long slog of continuous ‘Pod Mod‘, devices which claim to be versatile, portable and easy to use.
For too long we’ve seen the same old tosh being produced by multiple companies, all or mostly all of which offer practically the same kind of vape experience and all roughly around the same price.
Its been frustrating to say the least, don’t get me wrong, I enjoy testing these Pod Mods out and seeing what they’re made of in an extreme journey to find the best.
Now I’m not saying the product we’re looking at here is ‘The Best’ However, right off the bat it appears what this Kit offers is… well.. Absolutely everything!
Has it really taken roughly 3 years for Pod Style systems to get from the basic Non-Refillable Pods, to something like this?
3 Years of extremely similar stuff with very limited innovation, to finally get to this?
Well the pain has been worth it.
What Can We Expect From the Lost Vape Ursa?
The Lost Vape Ursa at a glance, appears to be extremely similar to the Lost Vape Grus 100w Mod that I checked out recently and its certainly in keeping with the Grus style.
However, the Ursa has some differences including 2 removable pods, a 510 adaptor an RBA base and 2 different coils to be used with one of the specific pods.
There is a hell of a lot to go through with this kit So let’s crack on with the review and see what this kit is all about.
This kit was sent to me free of charge for the purpose of review.

Lost Vape Ursa Colours
There are a whole plethora of colours for the Lost Vape Ursa, and the ‘Leather’ styles will also change colour through wear over time…clever.
Lost Vape Ursa Design and Build Quality
Considering the Lost Vape Ursa houses a single 21700 battery and a huge 7ml capacity pod, it’s actually fairly well sized.
Yes its a little on the tall side and you will have to consider how you transport this device, but its certainly not over-the-top when it comes to size.
The Lost Vape Ursa Pods
The Lost Vape Ursa Kit comes with two different pods, one of which will make use of the ‘UB’ coils, and the other will handle the ‘UB PRO’ coils as well as the RBA coil.
The pods themselves have very similar capacities, 6ml and 7ml respectively and each of them screw into what we will call the ‘Pod Base’ – More on the ‘Bases’ a little later.
The Pods are a little on the dark side! Meaning it can be a little tricky to see your e-liquid level. But I imagine a clear, or lighter smoked Pod wouldn’t look as cool.
Each pod comes pre-installed with either a 510, or 810 drip tip and they can both be filled from the sides of each pod, meaning you don’t need to remove the pod in order to fill. You will however need to remove the pod to change the Push-Fit coils.
With its Zinc Alloy frame and textured leather feel, its fairly comfortable and feels very high quality. Considering its size and weight, it’s very nice to hold and use.
The fire button is perfectly placed for thumb firing, leaving the rest of your fingers to wrap around the rest of the device. Using as a finger firer, its just as comfortable.
I find with my index finger on the button and the rest of my fingers wrapped round the Ursa, my pinkie sits comfortably at the base of the mod.
How To Fill the Lost Vape Ursa Pods
Here’s how to fill the pod with e-liquid:
- Remove the silicon bung on the side of the pod
- Fill with your desired e-liquid
- Re-fit the silicon bung and allow the e-liquid to saturate the cotton for at least 5 minutes.
Building the Lost Vape Ursa RBA
For use with the Ursa Pro Pod, the RBA coil comes with everything you need to get started.
Here’s my short guide on how to build and wick the RBA.
Annoyingly I have no information on the included coil, or the cotton, but I have it a go anyway.
- Trim the included coil to around a 5mm leg length and fit by unscrewing the terminals
- Once fitted and centrally positioned, gently pulse and scrape the coil to get a centre glow
- Once you’ve pulled your cotton through the coil, I’ve found the cotton doesn’t need much of a rake out, but the length in the picture below has worked best for me with only a light rake to remove any cotton clumps.
- Fit the included top-ring and soak the coil/cotton in e-liquid before installing into the Ursa Pro Pod.
The Lost Vape Ursa ‘Bases’
Not very often we see a device come with 2 different bases. The Ursa calls itself a ‘Multi Kit’ thanks to the ability to handle pods of two different variants, along with a 510 adaptor base.
The ‘Bases’ can be removed by awkwardly squeezing two buttons on the top end of the device and pulling the bases out.
The buttons are a little stiff but I have found over time, they do loosen a little, but you also learn ‘The Knack’ after a while.
The Pod Base includes an adjustable airflow slider and of course if you make use of the 510 adaptor, the tank you fit on top will deal with the airflow adjustment.
The 510 adaptor basically turns the Ursa into a Grus, capable of housing up to a 28mm Atomiser before you get any overhang, a wonderful addition to this kit.
Lost Vape Ursa Display, Menu & Functions
The Lost Vape Ursa has a different display and menu to the Lost Vape Grus which I think is a little Odd..
However the display and menu isn’t too bad. Its a little confusing to start with but you get the hang of it.
It’s mainly down to the 4-Button system. A fire button, Up, Centre and Down which in essence is 1 too many buttons. But here’s a few pointers..
Lost Vape Ursa Quick Start Guide
Here’s how to operate the Device:
- Device On/Off – 5 Clicks Fire Button
- Lock/Unlock Device – Press & Hold Up & Down Button.
- Puff Reset – Down button until you reach ‘Puff’ Option, then centre button
- Open Menu – Down button until you reach ‘Settings’ Option, then Centre Button
The Settings on the Lost Vape Ursa are very basic, allowing you to adjust the output power, screen brightness along wit changing your user settings so you can tailor your vape a little more.
Generally though, I’ve stuck to wattage and the main screen pretty much has al the information you need. Which considering its size is full of info.
Lost Vape Ursa Battery Door
As much as I’m not a fan of the type of doors that slide across your battery, I’m also not a fan of these screw in caps either.
If you don’t have any nails on your fingers, you may struggle just lifting the little lever before unscrewing the cap.
However one benefit of this style of battery cap is you limit the potential damage to the battery itself which is always a bonus.
How Does the Lost Vape Ursa Perform?
Depending on how you like to use this device, you can set it up in a number of ways, I’ll do my best to explain how it works and how well.
A bit of detail first though.
For all the coils, I used Code Red by Darkstar. Why the same on everything?
Well its simple really, I really wanted to see how much of a difference there was between flavour with each coil and if any of the coils bring out different aspects of the e-liquid.
Lost Vape Ursa 0.15Ω UB Pro P1 Coil
Recommended between 70-90 watts I found the UB Pro P1 coil works best at 75 watts, with the airflow slider wide open, it’s an airy draw and the flavour is a little lacking.
Dropping the airflow to Half way the flavour does improve, but I’m a little underwhelmed by the flavour.
The coil does a good job of bringing out the fruit flavours of Code Red, and its certainly a cloud producer, but the flavour just doesn’t quite tick all the boxes.
Lost Vape Ursa 0.2Ω UB M4 Coil
Recommended between 40 and 60 watts again with the airflow wide open, the UB M4 coil produces a decent cloud and well balanced flavour.
Certainly a good ‘All Purpose’ coil. Its not so great at pulling out sweet notes but as a general day to day coil, at 50 watts its enjoyable.
Because of the smaller coil size compared to the Pro range of coils, I found dropping the airflow adjustment down made more of a difference to the restriction, but I didn’t detect much change in flavour.
However be warned, if you decide you want more restriction, lower the wattage a little, especially with a High VG e-liquid.
Lost Vape Ursa RBA Coil
The included coil (which I have no information on) came out at 0.32Ω – I gather its a fused clapton of some description.
I’ve been impressed with the RBA for a number of reasons.
Firstly its large enough to take a larger coil if you fancy it, however be prepared for a more restrictive vape.
With the included coil, airflow wide open the flavour is very good. It compares in a way to the UB M4 coil however you have the added enjoyment of a rebuildable crackle.
Lost Vape Ursa Airflow
Thanks to the airflow slider on the pod base, the restriction can be set just as you prefer.
If you decide to take a punt on the higher resistance coils that are available, you can even get a fair MTL vape from this too, however not the best if you like a really tight MTL.
Battery Life & Charging
Always a tricky one when it comes to a device like this because it has so any options.
However a single 21700 battery will definitely last longer than a single 18650.
img class=”aligncenter wp-image-67884 size-full” src=”https://www.ecigclick.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2021/01/LostVape-Ursa-pod-adaptor.jpg” alt=”” width=”700″ height=”525″ />
I recommend if you get this device and don’t own a 21700, get one.
At 60w, used as a daily driver, a single 18650 battery will usually last me around 3-5hrs. With a 21700 battery I can stretch that to 7-9 hours, all depending on usage of course.
You can as well charge the device with the USB-C port and it also has Pass-Thru charging so you can charge and vape at the same time.
But I will always recommend charging your batteries externally.
Does the Lost Vape Ursa Leak?
After a week’s worth of usage on one of the pods, I decided I best check the base for leaking – I hate leaking.
To my surprise, only a large amount of condensation was noticeable.
Impressive yet not surprising considering the fill port is on the side, and not on the base.
- Extremely versatile
- Flavour on all coils is good
- RBA Coil is a decent size and easy enough to build on
- 510 adaptor takes up to 28mm atty
- Very good build quality and finish
- Display is bright and clear
- Button system is a little tricky at first
- Battery cap is a little annoying
- A bit tricky to remove the Pod/510 base
- Pods are a little dark to view e-liquid level.
Final Review Verdict
As the pod mod battle for domination continues…Has the Lost Vape Ursa ended the battle?
Or has it just started the next phase – a Pod Mod system which quite literally comes with everything, and does everything quite well.
As much as there are some minor problems with this kit, overall it does a great job and I would certainly recommend this device for a whole host of reasons.
Would this device be long lasting and still work 3, 6 or even 12 months from now?
With regards to its build quality, its built very well and I have no concerns over its durability.
In fact, if you pick one of the leather versions up, it’ll be interesting to see how the leather changes over time due to wear and tear.
Does this device deliver the flavour, vapour and general experience I require, in order to be enjoyed?
Considering there are so many options, the Lost Vape Ursa does a good job overall.
It’s so adjustable in so many ways that you’re bound to find a way to enjoy this kit most.
Not every way of vaping suits everyone but this is literally the most ‘All In One’ kit I’ve ever used.
Is this device versatile to suit a new vaper, and an experienced one a like?
The Lost Vape Ursa Kit probably isn’t something I would give as a gift to someone trying to quit smoking, nor would it be something I would recommend for them.
However for someone who’s been vaping for a short while, the Lost Vape Ursa Kit would allow them to really expand their experiences due to its versatility.
A complete kit offering a lot of different features and would last well over time too.
