Lost Vape Ursa Baby Pro Kit Review – Ursa In Your Palm!
Another new release under Lost Vape’s “Ursa” line of devices is the Ursa Baby Pro, which we shall be taking a look at in this review! This kit was kindly provided for review by Lost Vape (thank you, Bella!).
In case you haven’t come across them yet, the blog already has reviews of the Ursa Nano S and the Ursa Nano Art pod systems, which were released almost alongside the Ursa Baby Pro. Be sure to check these reviews out to find the best Ursa pod kit for you or your loved one!
So, the Ursa Baby Pro is, in my opinion, a bit more advanced than the “simpler” Ursa pod kits. This is mainly because of the adjustments it offers for airflow and power to the coil, but it is also quite different in form factor too. Interested to find out more? Then let’s start the review!
As always, my review will be from my own experience of using the device as a regular vaper, as most of you vapers buying this device will be.
Packaging and Contents
I was sent a sample pack that included:
- The Ursa Baby Pro Pod device/mod.
- 1 x refillable Ursa pod/cartridge with a 2.5 mL capacity and a 0.6 ohm fixed coil. For this pod, the entire pod will need to be replaced when its integrated coil reaches its end of service life.
- 1 x Ursa empty cartridge.
- 1 x 0.8 ohm UB Mini S1 Coil.
- USB-C cable.
- Paperwork such as the user manual, warranty card, and cartridge guide.
Salient Features include:
- The device has a 900 mAh battery with 2A charging.
- Dimensions at around 47 x 15 x 72 mm – easily fit the palm of your hand!
- Generates 5-25 W of power that is adjustable in 0.5 W increments, and can be viewed via its 0.42” OLED screen.
- With an output voltage of 1.7-3.9 V.
- Has both auto-draw and button-fire functionalities.
- Has airflow control.
- 9 elegant device design options.
- And of course, has the standard protections we are familiar with via its Lost Vape Quest Chip.
Impressions and Experience
The kit I received comes in a compact but rather tall box. The packaging’s outer sleeve has an embossed-coloured photo of the kit up top, with kit contents and features, Lost Vape’s socials, standard manufacturer information, and warning language printed around it. The kit and its accessories sit nicely on a plastic tray inside the inner box. All in all, the kit is presented simply but also in a classy way.
A. Ursa Baby ProDevice/Battery
The first thing that struck me about the Ursa Baby Pro device is how pleasant it looks without trying too hard. Made with zinc alloy, it feels solid and robust, especially coming in at around 87g. It feels nice in the hand, with the smooth metal contrasting nicely with the textures coming from the designs around the device.
Speaking of designs, it is unerringly a Lost Vape product. It has relatively generous branding on the front and at the back of the device, where a skull graphic with geometric shapes and lines is engraved quite expertly and cleanly in the Silver Lust finish. This back part, to me, is what makes this device a “Lost Vape” product, with the design reminding me of their Centaurus devices.
Up top is a deep pod cradle with gold contacts and magnets for the pod/coil, as well as the slot for the lanyard. On opposite sides of the device, a pinhole for airflow and the USB-C port can be found- which means this device can be charged upright!
At the front, one will find the slider which controls the airflow by altering the size of the airflow hole that is exposed (smaller hole exposed = tighter draw). The knob to grip this slider is quite pronounced for convenience but still keeps out of the way when in one’s pocket. The airflow control employed in this device is quite effective: for a tight to medium MTL (that I prefer), I opened the airflow just a tiny smidge, and when fully opened it does give a nice RDTL draw. This slider also stays in place with the right amount of tension.
Also in front is the small but informative screen which displays the power level, lock status, battery life in diminishing bars, ohm load, and puff count, which are all the basic information a vaper really needs on a day-to-day basis. Now, the screen is small and so some of the fonts are also small- just a heads up for vapers who are visually challenged (like me!).
Operating the Ursa Baby Pro is simple enough with solely the large fire button to use:
- 5 clicks to turn the device on/off.
- 4 clicks to unlock this button for adjustments and to use the fire button to vape. This action also locks the button.
- 3 clicks to adjust the wattage. When max wattage (25 W) is reached, the device round-robins to 5W again, so be careful with adjustment so as not to overshoot.
- Then the device auto-locks when the fire button isn’t used for a few seconds.
The device fires quickly, either in auto-draw or button fire. One thing to note is that for vapers that prefer to use the fire button all the time, you will need to unlock the button if you put the device down for several seconds as it auto locks. I suppose it’s a safety feature for it to always default to auto-draw, to avoid any misfires when the device is in the pocket or a purse!
The draw from the device in terms of tightness and warmth is very much variable depending on the airflow control setting and also the pod/coil used. I’ve found that in both the fixed coil pod and replaceable coil provided in the kit, the draw was warm enough for me, especially in a tighter airflow setting.
B. UrsaPod/Cartridge (with 0.6Ω fixed coil)
The plastic Ursa Pod is quite tinted but e-liquid levels are still visible even without holding the pod against the light. As the pod cradle is quite deep (as mentioned in the above section), one might need to take the pod out or tilt it sideways to check e-liquid levels.
At this point, I should mention that I did a little experiment and found that the Ursa Nano Pods are also compatible with the Ursa Baby Pro device. Major props here to Lost Vape for allowing this compatibility!
The duckbill mouthpiece, with its flat and narrow structure, was quite comfortable to use during vaping. This pod fills from the side, with the fill hole secured by a rubber bung. I’ve had no issues refilling and had no leaks from the process either, and that is always a pro!
The base of the pod has the contacts for the coil and magnets for the device, as well as a pair of air holes to allow air from the base of the pod.
With a 0.6 ohm fixed coil, vaping with this pod was such a beautiful experience! The vape was quite warm (just the way I like it) at 20 W, and relatively dense; my office got foggy quickly even at MTL! The flavour (7.5/10) coming from the coil was expressed quite nicely, especially in the fruity e-liquids I was using during my review. I used 50/50 VG/PG e-liquids, but this pod should also be able to handle 70/30 mixes as well.
This 0.6-ohm Ursa pod is a V2 release by Lost Vape, where it is marketed to have a 50% longer coil life and a 50% boost to the flavour. And I can support that somewhat from my experience as the pod I’ve used in the review is still going strong after 20 mL of e-liquid have gone through it!
C. 0.8Ω UB Mini S1 Coil
One of the great things about the Lost Vape Baby Pro Kit is that it allows the vaper to try both the fixed coil pod and the combination of a replaceable coil with the Ursa empty cartridge. Using the replaceable coil and cartridge combo is just about the same as the fixed coil pod (form factor, drip tip comfort, side refilling process), with both pods closely resembling each other. Of course, this is apart from the fact that the replaceable coil needs to be plugged into the empty cartridge before use (and conversely, a coil needing replacement needs to be pulled out).
The flavour from the 0.8-ohm UB Mini S1 Coil was pleasant (7/10), especially with the 50/50 VG/PG nicotine salts I used during my review. But, I couldn’t help but compare and prefer the Ursa Pod with the fixed 0.6-ohm coil for warmth and for the way I like my MTL vape. For MTL vapers out there that prefer more subtlety in their vape flavour and warmth, then this coil is for you!
Overall: Yay or Nay?
Being the “more complicated” Ursa device of this lot of Lost Vape devices reviewed, the Baby Pro holds its own ground for performance and looks. It is still very easy to use even with the added features of airflow control and wattage adjustment and would be a good step up for vapers wanting a little more out of their basic pod kit.
Pocket-friendly and ergonomic, the Lost Vape Baby Pro would be a good choice for MTL vapers on the go and for RDTL vapers that like their direct lung draws with noticeable restriction.
Once again, my thanks to Lost Vape for allowing me to test the Ursa Baby Pro Kit! To check the kit out more over on the Lost Vape site, check out the links at the start of the review!
