Reviewer comments on business characteristics
Lost Vape offers us a little gem. Three materials for this box, zinc alloy, stabilized wood and leather. It ships Evolv's DNA 75W chipset to offer an unparalleled vape on a box. The choice of the 75 W was probably made to reach more people, because a chipset 200 W can be scary and useless for some, detail that Lost Vape took into account.
For a good autonomy, it loads two 18650 batteries in parallel, which allows to be quiet for the day by not exceeding 40 W if you use it a lot. Despite being an Evolv DNA chipset, you will need to download the version of Escribe for the 75W herebecause the one for the DNA 200 does not take it into account.
Who says little gem, says case to the height. Believe me on this side, Lost Vape has done once again!

Reviewer's comments on physical characteristics and perceived quality
It is clear at a glance that this box is of perfect quality. The mixture of the three materials is well thought out and gives a result of the most beautiful it is. I let you see for yourself.
The hood of the box is covered with leather, three colors to choose for this model. Brown, black or suede coating.
On the top we will find the 510 connector with a diameter of 22mm. It is difficult to see it in the photo, but it is raised half a millimeter. Which allows that even a wider ato will not scratch the top, had to think about it, without harming the aesthetics of the box. The name and logo of the box are also present, via a laser engraving.
The batteries are housed under the hood, which holds him firmly thanks to a magnet, but not only. Indeed, under this one, there is a small locking screw which is adjustable.
The first battery that lodges, only about half its size, hence the compact size of the box.
The screen of the box offers good visibility, its brightness is adjustable via Escribe. The switch is octagonal, and under it, an LED is present that changes color while staying pressed. A little fun side ^^

Reviewer's comments on the use of the product
It is a pleasure to vape on such a box. No need for 200 W to get your foot. In this box, you can set up to eight profiles. Either one for each type of resistive wire, or a different profile for each ato used.
Its screen is legible and configurable according to the information you want to see. Basic there is:
The battery meter
The resistance value
The name of the profile in abbreviated form
The power of vape
Like most boxes on the market, pressing 5 once in a row on the switch, it locks. By staying pressed simultaneously on the [+] and [-], the power is also locked.
Once the power is locked, by pressing the [+] twice in succession, you can select the desired profile, having first configured it on Escribe.
Level autonomy you will not be left behind, count the day with a power of vape of 50 W.

The mood ticket of the reviewer
It was a pleasure to have the test of this box. She is small, compact and despite her two accuses she remains light. Its chipset is a treat to use because it is very responsive, customizable at will.
The small flat are:
The first battery that is difficult to put in place, and to remove
No degassing hole (heat / gas evacuation in case of overheating / battery runaway).
All the rest is just amazing, like my colleague who did the 1 review, I think I'll buy it soon. Compared to its price, its options, its quality of vape and all kinds of other things that I let you discover, I give him the Top Mod label.
Good vape, Fredo
