    Funny, I offered mine to a friend who’s thinking about quitting smoking...now I’m glad he didn’t take me up on the offer!

    I got the new pods and some coils today. Only tried the .25 so far but can't tell the difference between it and the old pods flavor wise. They are much better in that now we can just replace the coil instead of throwing out the whole pod.
    I have some IQS mesh pods .3 on the way. Keen to try those as well

    Got the IQS mesh pods today and flavor is far better with those. I played with the settings on the new Orion pods and got better flavor but those IQS pods are just great

    New coils are slightly better. I tried turning boost to 0 and warmth to 1 and can only get 3 days out of both the .25 and .5. They made the holes on these coils so small, i have a feeling not enough juice is getting in and they just burn. Was hoping to at least get a week out of these, could be me. Probably just gonna go back to the Caliburn.

    I emailed Lost Vapes about the inability of Mac users to upgrade the Orion software to use the new pod/coil.
    Actually, I'm kind of surprised they even answered, but they did.
    Saying: " Sorry for now can only upgrade in windows, I will push engineering team to do it."
    We'll see, but still happy they replied. A point in their favor.

    You dont need the new firmware to use the new coils.

    Really disappointed in the new replaceable coils. Wicking still doesn't keep up and I need to burp it every 4-5 drags. I have a 0.25 coil one up from the lowest setting with 50/50 juice and the vape is not very saturated. Afraid of turning it up any higher for fear of burning out the coil. The IQS coils are much better.

    Wicking like a dream here with 70vg at 23w on low boost and warmth. Would agree its a dry vape tho, wick holes are too small.

    Would you elaborate?
    Everything I've read everywhere indicates that I need to upgrade the firmware/software on the Orion DNA in order to use the new pods/coils.

    I didn't have to update mine for the new pods. (All I did was turn up the power) I'm still on the first coil and it's vaping great. (max VG @ 25 watts, direct lung)

    ok. I appreciate these comments.
    So, is it worth getting the new pods/coils?
    I'm ok with the ones I have, though I accept that they're not as good as RTA's I have.

    Suck it and see. For me, massive improvement, but then hated the old ones with a passion.

    One thing i will say, battery life virtually non existent with the new 0.25 at 23w.

    Mine doesn't seem to have changed. Did you update the firmware? (I didn't)

    Too soon to tell, I'm still on my first coil...but I'm feeling pretty optimistic about this new design.
