The company, founded by entrepreneur Frank Guo, aims to create innovative vaping devices.

USB Type C and Functionality

The USB port is on the underside, which is unsuicould be betterrtical charging. The device features more than adequate venting, and the fire and menu buttons are raised and responsive. However, the fire button's low position may be awkward for some users.

Reset the puff counter by holding the fire and - button together for three seconds.

The Quest chipset includes several safety features:

"Low battery" indicates the need for recharging.

"Check atomizer" appears if no coil is installed or resistance exceeds 5 ohms.

"Short circuit" appears if coil resistance is below 0.2 ohm.

"Too Hot" appears if the board temperature exceeds 75°C.

"Over 10s" appears after ten seconds of continuous inhale, temporarily stopping the device.

The pod has a 3ml e-liquid capacity and a small, easy-to-use design. The coil installation is straightforward, and the pod snaps securely into place with strong magnets. The mouthpiece is taller than preferred but still functional.

Coil Installation and Filling

Remove the pod from the battery section.

Push the coil up into the pod, ensuring a firm seal.

Open the silicone tab and fill the pod with e-liquid.

Snap the pod back into the battery section and wait five minutes before vaping.

Performance

UB Lite L6 1.0ohm Mesh Coil (10-15W)

Using a 50VG/50PG e-liquid, the coil provided a decent MTL vape but was too airy. The flavour was present but felt saturated on the exhale. Vapour production was minimal and discreet.

UB Lite L1 0.4ohm Mesh Coil (20-30W)

Using an 80VG/20PG e-liquid, the coil provided a semi-restrictive DL vape with a balanced flavour and smooth inhale. Vapour production was on par with other pod kits.

Pros

Lightweight and portable

Vaping while locked

Clear OLED screen

Simplified menu options

Fast firing and ramp-up of 1.0ohm MTL coil

Consistent performance from Quest chipset

Cons

Coils prone to leaking

USB port placement

Fire button position (subjective)

Insufficient airflow restriction on MTL coil (subjective)

Slow Type C charging

Conclusion

The Lost Vape Ursa Mini Pod Kit is a solid choice for new vapers due to its easy use and straightforward functionality. The MTL coil may be flawed, but the DL coil performs well with thicker e-liquids. The device is portable and user-friendly, though the slow charging and coil leaking issues may be drawbacks for some.
