Lost Vape Q-Pro review, superb and versatile
Lost Vape Q-Pro offers us a pod with stabilized wood designs. Superb and versatile, it is compatible with the coils of its entire Orion range.
The Lost Vape Q-Pro has many assets to become a reference AIO. Lost Vape is best known for its Orion pods with the DNA chipset, an entry-level and high-end range. The peculiarity of these pods was that the cartridges were disposable. With the Orion Q, the brand has proposed replaceable coils to make an AIO (All in One). And the Q-Pro is the result of this change with superb design and versatility with much of the Orion range.
The characteristics of the Lost Vape Q-Pro
I have already tested pods/AIOs like Rincoe’s Tix and the first thing I noticed with the Lost Vape Q-Pro is its ultra-compact size. It fits in the palm of your hand. It has a dimension of 93 x 37 x 13.5 mm for a total weight of 87 grams. The capacity of the cartridge is 2 ml and the power can go from 8 to 24 watts. We have a good battery life with a 950 mAh battery.
The design is simply sublime. The Q-Pro is available in over 13 colors, 3 in stabilized wood, 5 in weave and 5 in honeycomb. Lost Vape sent me a stabilized wooden model and god, the design is really beautiful. We have a great feeling of solidity when we hold it. Each element is perfectly fixed. The pods of Lost Vape are made to last and we see it with the Q-Pro.
What is the difference with other AIOs?
When you look at the Q-Pro, you say: But it is very similar to the many AIOS, existing on the market. And it’s true, vaping brands are not going to reinvent the wheel every time. But whether it’s the Orion range or the Q-Pro, Lost Vape has added many small details that make it easy to use.
First, on the side, you have a small slider to lock and unlock the cartridge. Then the filling is done from the top by unscrewing a small cap. And frankly, this should be a standard in many pods. The filling is done in a fraction of a second and the hole is sufficient for all types of bottles.
Powering on and power adjustment remains very conventional. You have a Fire button and another for settings. 5 clicks to turn it on and a click on the Fire button gives you autonomy, symbolized by colors (green for 100 to 50%, blue for 8 to 50% and red for 0 to 8%).
The power is also adjusted by color with the adjustment button at the bottom (white, blue, red, green, yellow and purple). White was the weakest power, 8 watts and purple will give you 24 watts. But it will also depend on the cartridge and the coil you put. Lost Vape has made sure that the power range matches your type of coil which is a very good thing.
Lost Vape Q-Pro is compatible with all the coils of the Orion range
One of the strengths of the Q-Pro is that it is compatible with all the coils in the Orion range.
- Q-Pro coil: 1 ohm (classic coil)
- Orion Plus coil: 0.25 ohm (mesh) and 0.5 ohm (classic coil)
- Coil of the Orion Q: 1 ohm
- Coil of the Orion Go: 0.25 and 0.50 ohm
This means that if you buy the Q-Pro, you’ll never have a problem finding coils. If there are no more Q-Pro coils in your vape shop, you can use all that of the Orion range. A bit strange is that the coils of Lost Vape are sold with the cartridge.
When you purchase coils from the Lost Vape Q-Pro, you have a pack containing a cartridge with a pre-installed coil and a supplied one. It means 2 coil. These cartridges are important because it ensures compatibility. It’s not the coils you change, but the whole cartridge.
However, this compatibility is not invertible. This means that you can not put a Q-Pro cartridge on an Orion. The pod will not recognize it. But as the brand says, the Q-Pro is a pod for all. On Instagram, Lost Vape has even announced the possibility of an RBA in the future, but nothing confirmed yet.
How to use the Lost Vape Q-Pro and how does it vape?
Lost Vape was generous because it sent me a lot of extra cartridges. For the test, I used the native Q-Pro coil in 1.0 ohm. To remove the cartridge, pull the slider down and remove the cartridge at an angle (such as a zippo lighter).
The filling is done by the cap unscrewed. The Airflow is in the Drip Tip and it’s a double AirFlow. I found it a little hard to spin, but he become smooth over time.
Changing the coil on the Lost Vape Q-Pro
Changing the coil of the Lost Vape Q-Pro is a little sport. You unscrew the Drip Tip and you push the small tip that protrudes. Do not do it dry, because it’s impossible to remove it. Basically, on a new model, put liquid and vape on it so that it relaxes a little. We would have liked a better mechanism to change the coil.
Me, what I do is that I unscrew the Drip Tip and I just screw it up a bit and I push the Drip Tip. The coil will come out from bottom. Change always the coil when the cartridge is empty. I took my head to get out the coil, but after a while, we get used to it.
And how is the vaping ? To be honest, I found it pretty aerial. I put in a 9 mg liquid, but I still find it quite aerial. This is understandable with a double airflow. The liquid was quite light, but the flavors are excellent. Orion pods from Lost Vape are known for their flavor and the Q-Pro is no exception. But I would put it more on an MTL aery and DL quite restrictive.
The Q-Pro ticks all the boxes of a good pod/AIO. It is compact, has a beautiful aesthetic and it corrects all defects. The filling is a breeze, the settings are very visible. The only downside is the change in coil that is a bit complicated at first. The price of the Q-Pro is around 50 dollars and the pack of 5 coil is around 15 dollars. You can also by the cartridge around 9 dollars. This cartridge will have 2 coils, one who is pre-installed and the other as a spare.
It is slightly higher than other AIOs, but the Q-Pro is superior to them in many areas. The compatibility of the coil is a major asset to avoid stockouts. And if Lost Vape adds an RBA in the future, then we have a nearly perfect Pod/AIO. In addition, the coil range from 1.0 ohm to 0.25 ohm makes it suitable for all types of vapers.
