Lost Vape Therion DNA75
With the impeccable build quality Lost Vape has executed time and time again, the Therion DNA75 is another example of a true vaping masterpiece! The Lost Vape Triade’s little brother may pack 75-watts while the Triade packs a huge 200 watts, but like the Triade, the Therion is constructed with the same superior materials and a top-notch fit and finish.
The Lost Vape Therion is a dual 18650 parallel battery configuration device with the unrivaled performance and customization options the Evolve DNA boards and Escribe software are known for. Gold plated and spring loaded battery contacts ensure a stable connection from start up to shut down. Power delivery is immediate upon firing with no delay thanks to Evolve’s fast reacting DNA chips.
The DNA75 has all the great features that other DNA boards have. Only the wattage and minor differences separates the DNA75 and DNA200. Observing the packaging and taking off the plastic wrap, I knew this device was a little slice of vaping heaven. Lost Vape also includes a really nice retractable micro USB cable that I will now be using for all my other mods. The Therion is not over-bearing in size or weight. It feels properly balanced when in your hand and just radiates quality. I find myself glaring at it quite often just admiring the fine materials and strong lines.
Using The Therion DNA75
Scrolling through the preprogrammed profile wire options, I was pleasantly surprised by how many they included right out of the box. From Kanthal, Nickel 200 all the way to Stainless Steel 430! If you don’t have Escribe or a PC computer at your disposal, you’ll have most functions right away without having to plug in TCR’s or navigate through the customization options. To get the full DNA experience and utilize the boards full potential, I’d recommend learning all you can about Escribe and watching the tutorials over at Evolve’s website.
The DNA75 software operates similarly to the DNA 200. As far as features and specifications, the Therion is limited between 1-75 watts but is a great range for two high-drain 18650 batteries (batteries are not included). I recommend buying a set of new batteries from the three respectable manufacturers, Sony, Samsung, LG and keeping them married or paired together. It can fire between 200°F – 600°F in Temperature Control and supports Nickel, Titanium, Stainless Steel and any other wires through custom TCR settings. The Therion can fire as low as 0.15Ω in TC Mode and 0.25Ω in Power Mode. Everything from the fonts to setting up custom profile pictures can be configured in the Escribe software.
The recognizable OLED screen that’s paired with all DNA boards is bright, easy to read and simple to navigate. The Micro USB Port located below the up and down buttons are for firmware upgrades and battery charging. It’s advised that you don’t charge your device via USB. Remove your batteries and use an external charger like the Nitecore D4.
Most DNA75 devices on the market are single 18650 or 26650 giving the Therion quite an edge over the competition. The DNA75 has been known to throw out ‘Low Battery’ errors but is non-existent with the Therion. The battery tray is fairly tight most notably when squeezing the first battery into place. Not a deal breaker by any means since it’s easy to remove the batteries using the release tab. Just takes some getting used to. There are no battery vent holes anywhere which most current devices have and is one of my only gripes with this device. The battery door does have a slight gap that could be giving it some venting.
Lost Vape has created a protection feature that makes it difficult to install your batteries the wrong direction.
Since the batteries both go in plus side up in this parallel setup, it differs from most devices on the market that have a series orientation. Even though there are protection systems in place that prevent potential failures from occurring, it’s important to pay attention to the correct battery orientation and understand battery safety. The Therion does have the plus and minus symbols clearly marked in the battery bay to avoid misinterpretation.
Like the Triade, the Therion’s chassis is milled out of zinc alloy with a genuine leather wrapped battery door. The magnets and ball system ensures a snug battery door fit and snaps into place. The real Ebony wood inlays are the feature that turns the Therion from a BMW to a Rolls Royce; a very elegant touch to differentiate this device from all the others out on the market. The fire button and up/down buttons are the same aluminum construction as the Triade and the placement is easy to find with the hand. No button or battery-rattle whatsoever. The buttons are large and operate very smoothly, which really makes this device comfortable to use for long periods of time. These beautifully crafted aluminum 9.5mm fire button and 5.5mm up and down buttons is the ‘attention to detail‘ we expect from a device of this caliber.
The 510 housing is made from high grade stainless steel with a nickel plated brass 510 pin for a secure connection. The 510 has plenty of travel but is on the stiffer side. Atomizers from 22mm through 25mm sit flush with no overhang or side to side movement. Threads are buttery smooth and very well machined. I can’t emphasize enough how exceptional the craftsmanship is on this device.
Paired next to similar sized DNA75 devices, Lost Vape did a great job getting everything to fit in a smaller, elegant frame. When standing next to the Hcigar DNA75, the Therion is only a touch bigger. Out of all the 75 watt devices getting thrown into the market before the August 8th deadline, this is definitely the top contender without a doubt.
One of the only negatives, and this is very subjective, is the price. It’s on the higher end of the price range. You can find DNA200 devices on sale for around the price of the Therion. But if you were to hold the Therion, use this device and decide it’s not for you, I would be extremely surprised. Every comment and review I’ve came across has nothing but extraordinary praise and top of the line ratings. Now I can see why.
Therion DNA75 Leather Accents
Staining from accidentally spilling eJuice on the leather could worry some but is a quick fix with a towel and water wipe down. The dark brown, black and Italian weave variations seem to have a glossy finish reminiscent of leather protectant. The light brown seems dryer and more prone to discoloration. The leather will darken with time but gives it some patina and adds to the aesthetics of the mod in my opinion. You’ll get a strong scent of leather when you first open the packaging. If this is a concern for you, know the smell will fade after a day or two so no need to worry.
Therion DNA75 and Atomizers
My sub-ohm tanks are getting a lot more use on the Therion. Most sub-ohm coils have a range between 45-75 watts so this device works just perfectly within the mid power range. Even running the full 75 watts, you’re still getting exceedingly good battery life thanks to the parallel configuration. All tanks I’ve tried including various RTA’s and RDA’s, every one of them performs great and as expected from a DNA device. When it’s set to 75 watts, I’m receiving every single watt, without a doubt.
When I first saw a preview of this device prior to release, I wasn’t sold on the design. After holding and using the
Therion I absolutely love it! The $124.95 (Element Vape) price tag is on the higher side and could be a hesitation to some, but the quality supersedes any 75-watt device out there.
You’re definitely getting what you pay for and it’s truly a work of vaping art! This is one of those devices when you walk into your local Vape Shop you’re the star of the show! I applaud you Lost Vape for putting out such an unbelievably gorgeous, superior performing device and for continuing to push the bar higher for other designers and manufacturers! I recommend the Lost Vape Therion DNA75 Box Mod to any intermediate or advanced vaper that’s looking for that DNA experience on the go.
