The Lost Vape Lyra is another vape pod system kit from a brand that is best known for its higher end vape gear with the latest DNA chipset.
Lately, Lost Vape are probably best known for their Orion DNA Go and Orion Q Pod Systems, which were unusually styled at the time, but have subsequently been practically ‘copied’ by a number of manufacturers.
A fellow Vapormo reviewer who I very much respect rated both versions of the Orion pod System very highly indeed.
What Can We Expect From The Lyra Pod System:
The Lost Vape Quest Lyra Pod System – ‘The Lyra’ for short has a hell of a lot to live up to as the successor to the Orion Series. It appears the Lyra is more of a ‘AIO’ (All-In-One) system as it comes with 2 different coils and is apparently capable of MTL and DTL vaping. With a 1000mAh battery, solid design, refillable, removable coils, leather feel on each side and pretty nice finish – on the face of it, the Lyra looks to have everything you would expect from a Pod System. This Kit was sent to me for the purpose of review. All views and opinions are solely those of my own and do not necessarily reflect the opinion of others.

Design and Build Quality:
The Lyra is such a solid feeling AIO Pod Mod. The paint finish is excellent and it feels very well built in general. The leather sections on either side are quite thin, so not very spongy and I’m pretty sure I could peel them off with not much effort, so I’m not sure how long they will last before they A) Peel off & B) wear down to the metal structure of the device. There are also resin panel designed devices available as well, which I haven’t had the chance to see/feel, which actually makes me appreciate the leather as it limits the chances of the Lyra slipping through your fingers.
There’s a Micro USB port at the base of the device for charging and 2 nicely sized airflow holes on either side. You can also screw the lanyard onto the side which I made use of at times, but not to hang around my neck, more to hold onto. Not sure why, maybe its the fidgety type of person I am!?
The Pod can be removed from the device by simply pulling it out. And there is a nice resistance to it – I don’t think the pod connects to the device via magnets, but more via 2 small notches on either side that ‘click’ the pod into the device. But it’s held in very nicely and trying the ‘Pod Flick Test’ left me with no concerns over it flying out of the device and smashing on the floor. The pod has removable coils, and is also refillable via the 2 filling slots, either side of the coil under the mouthpiece. The removable mouthpiece section is slightly flimsy, but as a whole, the Pod is a well built solid little thing and I have no concerns over its durability. Unless of course you break or loose the mouthpiece section – Then you’re stuffed!
In the Hand:
The Lyra isn’t too small, but isn’t too big, and its beautifully curved so it feels lovely in the hand. Even though the leather is very thin, it’s still comfortable. The fire button is perfectly located for thumb firing, nice and clicky and protrudes a perfect amount.
On The Mouth:
The ‘mouthpiece’ section of the pod is absolutely perfect and super comfortable. It’s perfectly shaped and although in the hand the mouthpiece is a little cheap feeling, its thick enough that you don’t feel like you could crush it with your teeth… If you’re a little weird like that!
