Reviewer comments on business characteristics
One of the great classics of the Chinese High End comes back to us in a final version. Indeed, Lost Vape decided to give an offspring to "His" reference, the Therion 75.
We keep the neo-retro look so dear to its worshipers. The box changes little in appearance but it embodies the latest from Evolv, the DNA75C which, according to the words of the moment, is probably one of the best chipsets currently on the market.
The price level does not move, it is clearly on a box with luxurious accents made in China.
One of the big trends of the moment among savvy vapers is the bottom feeder. So this version of Therion arrived on my desk in an all-black finish. So, let's discover together the facelift of this little sacred monster of the vape.

Reviewer's comments on physical characteristics and perceived quality
The Therion has become a true classic of the vape landscape. Lost Vape has decided not to touch the lines of the original box.
We remain in this neo-vintage universe, sober lines but very rich. The overall design is both attractive and consensual, it is difficult not to find aesthetic qualities at this box.
This feeling is reinforced by the mix of materials and harmony of colors. In the case of the "All Black", the slice adopts a black paint type gun metal. The rest of the body of the box is covered with a rather dull anthracite gray. Carbon inserts come to bring a more modern sporty touch that contrasts with the spirit of this product. On other finishes, these inserts are wood and I find it more in the tone of the general design of the box.
The sleeve that covers the battery compartment is covered with a kind of textured black leather which, in addition to displaying an extra elegance, provides good grip. When we remove the latter, we discover a silicone bottle of 7ml equipped with a metal cap. The latter seems very good.
The finish is irreproachable (considering the price, it's normal anyway), the dimensions are quite in the standards.
Finally, all we can possibly blame this new box is not to be quite new. Apart from the new color screen and the three adjustment buttons arranged in succession, the general physiognomy continues. Note in passing the very good quality of all orders.
Nothing changes in depth, it's just a simple restyling with a new engine, but at the same time why change something that visibly pleases many consovapeurs?

Reviewer's comments on functional features
As far as the functional characteristics are concerned, we therefore have in the first instance an Evolv DNA75 C chipset.
This latest version has of course all the usual modes of vape: variable power, temperature control (compatible with titanium, SS316, and NI200), the value of the resistors must be between 0.15 and 3Ω. All that's missing is a Bypass mode to cover the full spectrum of possibilities.
It is of course equipped with all necessary protection systems (battery polarity reversal, short-circuit protection, overheating ...).
Needless to say that the vape is perfectly regulated by electronics and in all modes. The American foundry is broken to the exercise of the perfect vape and here again demonstrates his mastery in the field.
As for the color screen, its correct size and good definition make it pleasant and readable. You can set the information to display and the entire menu tree using the software Write. The use of the software will allow you to create your personal profiles, to implement new resistive and to modify almost all the parameters of the chipset according to your desires or needs.
The micro USB port allows both to charge the battery (even if, as we know, this type of loading is less effective than a good external charger) and connect the box to your PC to use the software Escibe.
One 18650 battery, the rest of the space being dedicated to the dripper's feeding bottle. The notch makes it possible to press it in order to raise the juice. The system, we suspect, is perfectly developed.
In short, an electronic box with an excellent chipset, so it should be particularly difficult to not be fully satisfied by the opportunities offered by the Therion.

Vapelier's note on packaging: 4 / 5
Reviewer's comments on conditioning
A very sober box, dressed in black, which presents a picture of face and another of profile of our precious box. It opens like a box, the lid is lifted and it is held by a small black ribbon, the kind of small detail that supports the high-end character of the product.
Inside, the box, a box containing the USB cable and the bottle of 30 ml silicone intended to fill the vial of 7 ml by pine 510 (we talk about it below).
A fairly complete manual but unfortunately not translated into French and, finally, the warranty card.
The packaging is correct even if we could see even better and above all, we find today translated records on lower range products from China. So, Mr. Lost Vape, a little effort please.

Vapelier's note in terms of usability: 4.5 / 5
Reviewer's comments on the use of the product
To start on this point, the box is neither big nor small, we can consider transport without bag, but your pockets will still have a good capacity.
Then, in terms of parameterization, no problem. You can as I already pointed out, create your custom menus and even find a lot of interfaces programmed on the forum Evolv dedicated to this chipset, note that you can also feed this forum with your own creations. Navigation is facilitated by the 3 system buttons [+], [valid], [-] in order from top to bottom.
The squonk bottle contains 7ml, what to do and see coming. Especially since Lost Vape has provided an element to help you in your refills without having to remove the inner bottle all the time.
Lost Vape offers a bottle of 30 ml for filling with 510 pine. This bottle is screwed in place of the atomizer, it is then necessary to open the "breathing" of the small bottle by rotating a ring equipped with a small hole and align it to a marker. Then, you press the "big" bottle and you're done. It will be necessary to think of course to close the air intake of the small bottle. The system is well thought out and works very well but it still requires to remove the sleeve for this story of "breathing".
The only reservation that I will emit comes from the fact that the box only has an 18650 battery. You will have to change it several times a day if you are steaming on values between 30 and 40W. And, to change this battery, you will have to extract the bottle bottom feeder so, in the end, why not take advantage of this moment to fill it?
In conclusion, no major concern in this item, the box is rather pleasant to live and the vape that follows is just at the top.

The mood ticket of the reviewer
To be honest, I had a little problem at the beginning of this test. I have always found the Therion very beautiful, but it never melted me. Probably because this box is too appreciated and I do not like to do like everyone else. 😉
But here, after putting aside these prejudices not objective, I could appreciate all the qualities of this box.
Let's put the chipset aside, this is one of the best at the moment, so there is no problem at this level, only praise and no blame!
I will dwell on what makes Therion's success, his physique.
This box is very well designed, its neo-retro style with accents so British makes its effect from the opening of the box. The harmony of shades and textures, its simple and classic lines that are in an industrial Eiffel type style, all this is a perfect taste.
It does not really have a fault, but I will say that the Bottom Feeder with a single battery, even if it is widespread, it leaves a little on its hunger level energy autonomy.
In conclusion, this beautiful box deserved to see his career continue with what is best in chipset. It is therefore a Top Mod.
