Lost Vape Cyborg Quest 100W Kit – One Heavy Machine!
What’s this, another hardware review? Yep! That’s right, but this time we take a look at one of Lost Vape’s releases a few months ago into the sub-ohm vaping market: the Lost Vape Cyborg Quest 100W Kit!
This device was kindly supplied to me by Sourcemore.com for review purposes. Sourcemore is one of my trusted vape vendors and is one of the biggest vape retailers based out of China. They sell pretty much everything you could ever need for vaping, and they run crazy promotions from time to time (use code CQ100K for this kit in review). So be sure to check them out for your vaping supplies!
It wasn’t that long ago that I wrote a review for a Lost Vape product, my very first review of one, in fact. That was for the Lost Vape Centaurus Quest BF Kit, which was a kit I rated. But even before that kit came along, Lost Vape has steadily churned out quality devices in 2021, I must say. Amongst these is the Cyborg Quest 100W Kit, alongside other mods and pod kits. One thing I appreciate about Lost Vape is that in a market that has heavily pivoted towards disposables, they really made an effort to continue producing devices that cater to vapers of all abilities: from pod kits to DNA mods (and of course, their own brand of disposables).
So, what’s the Lost Vape Cyborg Quest 100W Kit all about? Well, let’s find out in this review!
As always, I will be reviewing this mod as an average vaper, as most of us in the community are.
Packaging and Contents
I was sent the retail version of the Lost Vape Cyborg Quest 100W Kit, the packaging of which contained:
- Cyborg Quest 100W Mod, which runs on a single 18650, 20700, or 21700 cell.
- UB PRO Pod Tank has a 5mL capacity.
- 18650 battery adaptor.
- 0.15-ohm mesh UB Pro P1 Coil.
- 0.3-ohm mesh UB Pro P3 Coil.
- Baggie of spares with o-rings.
- User manual and warranty card.
- USB-C Charging cable.
You will get everything you need to get started bar the e-liquid and battery, of course. I did wish that Lost Vape provided an alternative drip tip though because the one supplied is a little on the tall side (but remains to be comfortable to use).
Salient Features include:
- The first thing I noticed with the mod is how heavy it is as compared to other single-cell mods in the market! It weighs a relatively whopping 193g without any battery!
- Not only heavy, but this mod is also quite tall and chunky! Its dimensions stand at 104 x 32.6 x 44.2 mm.
- Mod goes from 5-100W in power.
- The output voltage is from 0.7-8.0V.
- Reads resistances from 0.1-5.0 ohms.
- Runs on the Quest 2.0 chipset with modes such as Power, TC (SS, Ti, Ni), VPC, Voltage, Bypass, and with the capacity to store 3 user settings (pre-sets, if you will).
- Bright, coloured 0.96” TFT screen.
- Has a USB-C port for fast charging if you’re in a pinch.
- As for the tank, this is something that Lost Vape has paired with a few of their kits of late. It is compatible with the UB Pro Coil platform.
Impressions and Experience
The kit was presented tidily, with a printed coloured photo of the device on the outer sleeve as well as kit features, package contents, warnings, and manufacturer information written around it. The inner white box houses the kit components which are neatly laid out on a plastic tray.
As a kit, it feels solid on the hand, and neither the tank nor mod looked out of place with each other. I must admit that I initially thought the kit would look a little tacky, but I am glad to be proven wrong as it really looks like a proper, grown-up sub-ohm kit!
A. Lost Vape Cyborg Quest 100W Mod
This mod does have a little cyberpunk thing going on with it! Lost Vape state that it is made with zinc alloy, but judging by the weight, I have a feeling that there is some stainless steel element to it, or they used quite a heavy form of zinc alloy.
I’m not gonna lie – at first glance, the mod does look a little odd, if not very unique. Thick metal bands branch throughout the top of the mod and towards the base. There is also a very thick metal front, which is where most of the mod’s weight is concentrated in. Despite the looks though, I was surprised at how comfortable the mod is in the hand. I thought the metal frame will feel strange, but if anything, it helps with grip, especially as it contrasts with the very smooth carbon fibre (ish?) component of the mod.
Build quality is nothing short of excellent, I must say. There are no sharp edges or glue marks sticking out; I can tell that attention was paid carefully to how this mod looked! Branding is present indeed but done relatively minimally by Lost Vape, which if you know me by now, is something that will always be a pro in my book.
Up top is a very wide 510 platform that is screwed in, and this space can easily accommodate 30mm atomisers if you so wish. Mind, this is a single cell mod so there are some practicalities to be applied here in terms of how much power you’d want the mod to kick out to match your coil/build.
The threaded battery door can be found at the bottom, having three vent holes in them as well as a swivel handle to undo/install the door. There are clear cell polarity markers on the door and inside the chamber which is insulated. Now, some vapers might not be fans of this type of battery doors, but I’m not one of them as these prove to be more durable in the long run than sliding ones, for example. But vapers with super-short fingernails may find some difficulty in catching the swivel handle to operate the battery door. The battery door threads into and out of the mod very smoothly though- definitely no crunch-town situation here!
The front of the mod has the screen, buttons for firing, adjustment and selection, and a USB-C port. With this mod having the exact same chipset as the Centaurus Quest BF Mod that I reviewed, I do kindly ask that you refer to that review for a more detailed run-down of the mod functions via its chipset. But, in a nutshell:
- The screen displays the ohm load, battery life in percentage and bars, mode, power/temperature, puff duration, user setting saved, soft/norm/hard setting, puff counter, as well as “settings” to allow you to go into the mod’s settings.
- When operating the mod, always remember to move the colour block, via the adjustment button, as it acts as a cursor to highlight the setting you want to adjust.
- Fire button five clicks to turn the mod on/off.
- Up + down buttons pressed together will lock/unlock these buttons.
The settings area has these options:
- Atomizer: to have the mod measure the ohm load and where you can also adjust the soft/norm/hard puff setting.
- Screen: for adjusting screen brightness.
- Color: to choose the display colour.
- User: where you can save up to 3 presets.
- Reset: To reset the mod.
- About: for the software version installed.
As I said in my previous Lost Vape review, the screen and mod operation may seem daunting at first, but it’s really easy to get used to it. This chipset remains to be one of my favourites in the market!
As for performance, it performs similarly and as well as the previous Lost Vape mod I reviewed. It fires quickly and with the variety of adjustment options presented, you will be sure to be able to tailor your experience as you like. You just need to take a few minutes to fully understand what the mod can offer to you. I did observe the same oddity with the battery percentage displayed whilst using the mod, but again, the battery drain was about what I expected, so I have no significant concerns on this point. Overall, it is a very solid mod that offers performance and versatility- just be mindful of the weight especially if you use it with a 21700 cell!
B. Lost Vape UB Pro Pod Tank and UB Pro Coils
The UB Pro Pod tank is also on the chunky size, due to its liquid capacity and the size of coils it can accommodate. It’s made out of plastic, and there are also metal parts for the coil contacts, and rubber for the fill port bung.
The tank is finished smoothly without any jagged edges, or even crunchiness when breaking it down or reassembling the parts. Branding is very minimal, so much so that I wouldn’t fault anyone for mistaking this for other pod tanks in the market. The plastic itself is quite tinted, but due to its size, it allows more light in and therefore, it’s very easy to see E-liquid levels.
Up top is the 810 drip tip, but it’s the kind that has the o-rings on it. So if you’d want to use your own drip tip, you’d need to use a modified version. It was comfortable enough to use though as it is of a conical shape that narrows towards the top.
The fill hole is covered by a rubber bung which I know some people are not a fan of. But since it’s on the side, there are no leaking concerns on this aspect. The only thing I will say is that I did find the fill hole to be on the smallish side. Most commercial short fill bottle tips will fit but larger nozzles won’t so bear this in mind if you use large, 250mL bottles with understandably wider nozzles.
The pod tank screws into the metal base that has the coil contacts and the airflow ring without any stops. The airflow itself is quite generous when fully open, and is effective enough when adjusted to cut down the airflow.
The coils press-fit from the bottom. Seeing the system as it is, I immediately thought about potential leaking issues, but I am happy to report that I didn’t experience any. The o-rings on the coil are secure enough to keep the liquid inside the tank. But… as the pod is made of plastic and will be reasonably be expected to handle high temperatures, I do wonder if this will hold true over time, as plastic can deform with heat and pressure applied (remember that the pod tank screws into the base, which requires grip, and therefore pressure). Only time will tell, I suppose.
Both supplied coils are quite big for a pod tank – almost like full-fledged sub-ohm tank mesh coils. I started with the Ni80 0.15 ohm UB Pro P1 Coil (70-90W, used it mostly at 70W) and it provided me with decent flavour (7/10) and clouds. Vaping dessert flavours, I was able to distinguish the notes of the flavour I was vaping. One thing I will say (and this goes as well for the other coil, the UB Pro P3) is that the sweetness of the e-liquid I was vaping seems to be amplified versus other stock mesh coils I’ve tried. It’s not a bad thing for me but again, something to note for other vapers with a more sensitive taste. Warmth is quite decent too for a mesh coil with a wide bore.
The 0.3 UB Pro P3 Coil (60-70W, also used at 70W) was up next and it provided good flavour (7/10) and a clean taste. Being made out of SS904L, this coil may also be used in temperature control. I didn’t notice the amplified sweetness so much with this coil when vaping the same flavour.
Overall, I am quite happy with the coil’s performance. Major props as well to Lost Vape for stating the coil material on the coils! That is very considerate of people who may have sensitivities to certain metals.
Overall: Yay or Nay?
Despite its perhaps weird looks and weight, yes, I would still recommend this kit for those inclined! It gets a “Yay” from me for its solid build quality that gives me the impression it will endure the test of time. If you don’t mind the weight, this is a good sub-ohm kit to have in your arsenal as the coils give good flavour, and the mod’s ability to accommodate a 21700 battery for increased battery life.
This kit isn’t for new switchers to vaping though as this is a straight-up sub-ohm vaping kit. And this is not the kit to put in your jean’s back pocket due to its size and weight. But personally, I will continue to use this kit, more as an at-home DL set-up, as I thoroughly enjoyed the experience this kit had provided to me.
