The bottom line

Lost Vape is a well-known and well-respected vape brand, but perhaps there’s a good reason it’s not well-known for disposables. There are several features that I liked about the Orion Bar 7500’s, from the attractive design to the sliding airflow hole. Sadly, there are also a few things I found frustrating.

Although the name and the packaging promise up to 7500 puffs, I struggle to see how any average vaper would achieve that milestone. Perhaps if you take tiny, pointless puffs, but not if you draw deeply, and certainly not if you have the airflow hole wide open.

The battery also seems to be a little underpowered and unreliable. Perhaps I just had a few faulty devices, but it’s worth considering if you want a vape that you can take out with you all day without worrying that it will die on you before you get to a charger.

The flavors I tried were all pretty nice, and there is certainly a nice range available, which includes some intriguing options. None of the flavors I tested had the same sweetness as similar vapes, such as the Elfbar vapes. That’s a selling point for me, but not if you like the sweet candy tastes that have become so popular.

With a bit of tweaking, Lost Vape could have a disposable on their hands that is a match for any of the most popular options available today. But as they stand, and aside from the previously mentioned plus points, something is lacking in the Orion Bar 7500’s.

Check Price

The Orion Bar 7500 is one of the few disposable vapes available from Lost Vape, a company much better known and respected for their box mods, pod mods, and pod kits. And rightfully so, because they make some really good devices if you’re serious about vaping.

As the name suggests, the Orion Bar is a 7500 puff device that uses the now-familiar squat and square shape as competitors like the EB BC5000. It is available in more than 25 flavors (15 at launch, with more added to the range since then) and has a distinctly colorful style.

After learning that they contain a pretty standard 18ml of vape juice, a 650mAh battery, and there’s only 50mg/ml strength available, I hoped there was more to this undeniably unique-looking device than met the eye.

Luckily, I got my hands on a range of flavors to try out for a couple of weeks to find out if the Orion Bars were beauties, beasts, or something in-between.

Design & Build Quality

  • Lost Vape Orion Bar 7500 - 1

The design of the Lost Vape Orion Bars is probably their most unique feature. A see-through plastic body contains all of the inner components such as the e-liquid tank, coil, battery, and electronics. All of this is hidden behind an inner skin that features a “funky” design on a black background.

The whole effect is pretty unique, although the style may not be for everyone. To me, it feels like a nod to early vape culture mixed with tattoo design. Each vape has a differently-colored design that corresponds vaguely with the flavor: blue for the Blue Mint, orange for Mango Ice, etc. This is further complimented by a matching base of the same color.

The Orion Bars are approximately the same size and weight as similar vapes such as the Elfbar BC5000. Perhaps a little chunkier, but not by much. They are easy to hold in the hand, relatively easy to conceal if you like to vape discreetly and feel solid enough that an occasional drop won’t have much effect.

They use a flattened duck-bill mouthpiece, which isn’t my personal preference but feels comfortable to draw on nonetheless. Flip the vape over and you’ll find the USB-C charging port, a small activation light, and a sliding airflow control.


Features

Lost Vape Orion Bar 7500 - 11

This is a disposable vape, albeit one that should last a couple of weeks for the average vaper, so the feature list is not huge. 

Inside the vape is a 650mAh rechargeable battery, similar to most vapes of this type. As mentioned above, this is charged via USB-C, although it didn’t seem to take full advantage of the fast charging this can offer. On average, it took around 60 minutes to charge fully from drained but that was a completely dead battery, not just from the low battery warning. 

There’s no display or lights on the body of the device, just a small LED light on the bottom to tell you when the device is firing and when the battery is dying. Aside from the USB port, the other feature on the base is the sliding airflow control. 

More and more disposables seem to be introducing sliding airflow holes, and I’m all for this trend. It gives you much more control over the draw on the Orion Bar, allowing you to switch from a fairly tight MTL draw to a loose draw more suited to RDL vaping. It works much better than a single (or bunch of) tiny holes you need to block with your finger. 

The vape is draw-activated, so there’s no button to press. Just suck on the drip tip and the vape fires. From what I have been able to discover, the coil used to vaporize the 18ml of e-liquid is a fairly standard mesh coil, probably with 1 or 1.2ohm resistance to allow for the different vaping styles. 

There is currently only one choice of nicotine strength: 50mg/ml (or 5% nicotine.) A lower-strength option would have been nice to see, but I can live with only having a single strength, and I expect most vapers looking for this type of device will feel the same. It’s not exactly unusual for these large-capacity disposables to only be available in 5%. 


Flavors

Lost Vape Orion Bar 7500 - 4

The flavor range of the Orion Bars is pretty much as you might expect from a modern disposable vape, edging a bit much towards the sweet fruit and candy market for me to find truly delicious. But my favorite flavor profiles tend to be more aniseed and menthol than things like pineapple lemonade, so that’s likely to be a personal choice rather than anything wrong with the flavors available.

I was lucky enough to try several of the 25 or more standard flavors in the range, and here are the ones I liked the best.

Mango Ice

I love mangoes, but mango vape juice is something I struggle to enjoy. So I was surprised to find the mango ice flavor a joy to vape. Very fruity and quite sweet, but tempered by the cooling hit of the ice to make it much more enjoyable (for me, at least).

Lush Ice 

Although not easy to work out this flavor from the name alone, Lush Ice combines watermelon for sweet juiciness with minty cooling for an icy throat hit. To me, it feels like a perfect summer vape, satisfying while also being refreshing. But that could be due to childhood memories of eating slices of the juicy red fruit on the beach.

Rainbow Drop 

This flavor reminds me of shoving a handful of different flavored soft fruit candies into my mouth at once. It shouldn’t work for me in vape juice, but it really hit the spot with the sweetness and has a hint of fizz, almost like one of those make-believe sweets was a sour candy.

Aloe Grape

Grape is one of my all-time favorite fruit flavors for vape juice, and the addition of aloe somehow takes this to the next level. Aloe isn’t a flavor that I find enjoyable on its own, so this was definitely the surprise of the range. The slight hit of ice cooling also really helps to tone down the sweetness of the grape.

Blue Mint

As the name suggests, this is a combination of blueberry and mint. It’s the sort of flavor I go for time and again in disposable vapes and was definitely close to my favorite here too. The blueberry tastes fruity without being too sweet, and the cooling hit of mint works on the inhale and exhale. Very nice indeed!


How do they vape?

Lost Vape Orion Bar 7500 - 2

I found the Orion Bars very easy to use (as was expected) and they give a good hit of flavor most of the time. I say most of the time because there were a few times when the flavor seemed to fade, even when I could still hear liquid inside and had a charged battery.

The throat hit is generally satisfying, but it does vary between flavors. I found the sweetest flavors give less of a hit than the fruity or ice flavors, although that often seems to be the case with disposables. I enjoyed the ability to tweak the airflow to my liking without having to check that my fingers are directly over some tiny hole. However, I would say that the MTL draw is a little loose if you’re after the “smoking a cigarette” experience.

I didn’t count my puffs, but it felt as though the 18ml of liquid ran out before I was anywhere near the advertised 7500 puffs. Maybe that was just me taking huge draws on the device, but I certainly didn’t feel like I was. Let me be clear, these vapes still provide a pretty impressive use time for the fourteen dollars they cost and certainly provide several thousand puffs.

The 650mAh battery holds up fairly well, but can sometimes go from firing on all cylinders to blinking red light unexpectedly. Occasionally this would be signaled by a drop in flavor intensity, but not always. This happened on several devices I tested, so it appears to be a bigger problem than one faulty battery.


Verdict

Lost Vape is a well-known and well-respected vape brand, but perhaps there’s a good reason it’s not well-known for disposables. There are several features that I liked about the Orion Bar 7500’s, from the attractive design to the sliding airflow hole. Sadly, there are also a few things I found frustrating.

Although the name and the packaging promise up to 7500 puffs, I struggle to see how any average vaper would achieve that milestone. Perhaps if you take tiny, pointless puffs, but not if you draw deeply, and certainly not if you have the airflow hole wide open.

  • The disguise of the larger unit is just that. I’ve bought six of these things. The multiple flavors are weird, but you have to buy it to find out. The last one I got 3 days ago. The last Orion I’m ever buying has made sure of that. It’s strawberry kiwi flavor, and it’s out of liquid, and it really makes me mad. $27 is too much for eye tricks and NO FLAVOR. I’m sucking on it now until it burns out. I liked the blackcurrant mixed berry the most, and lasted 2 weeks before I don’t puff hard. Otherwise I can’t believe that I tried so hard to enjoy the brand too.

  • I just bought this vape and the flavor is off and when i hit it it makes a hissing noise like it’s still burning after I’ve hit it. None of my other orions have made this noise .

  • Yes I agree….awesome awesome looking vape BTW!!!! but flavor did not last long AT ALL!!….Day three I started to notice a little bit and now each puff can go either way flavorwise!

  • I bought 3 Orion Vapes and only 1 was good. 1 started up on its own and over heating another had a burnt coil after a week. Will never buy again.
