Product intro and specs
The new Orion Bar 7500 disposable vape from renowned brand Lost Vape aims to deliver a satisfying vaping experience in a sleek, portable format. As a leader in innovative vape tech like the DNA-chipset enabled Orion pod system, Lost Vape has built up high expectations among experienced vapers.
Does the Orion Bar live up to the Lost Vape name? With 15 mouth-watering flavors, 5% nicotine salt juice, and an 18mL capacity providing up to 7500 puffs, it certainly seems appealing on paper. The rechargeable 650mAh battery and adjustable airflow ranging from tight MTL to restricted lung hits add to the versatility.
As a seasoned vaper familiar with top industry brands, I had high hopes for the Orion Bar. With premium disposables now available for as little as $17.99 at ejuiceconnect.store, does this Lost Vape creation deliver satisfying flavor and vapor production? Or is it just another good-looking disposable that fails to match the Orion pedigree? Read on to find out if the Orion Bar exceeded my expectations or fell short.
The Orion Bar 7500 from Lost Vape is designed for optimal portability and performance. It contains 5% nicotine salt e-liquid for satisfying throat hit and nicotine delivery. The large 18mL juice capacity allows for an impressive 7500 puffs on a single charge.
Power comes from a built-in 650mAh rechargeable battery that uses convenient USB-C charging. The compact size makes the Orion Bar easy to carry and vape on the go.
Each Orion Bar 7500 kit includes:
- 1 x Orion Bar 7500 device
- USB-C charging cable
The simple, all-in-one disposable format contains everything needed to start vaping. Just open the package, charge if needed, and enjoy. The Orion Bar eliminates the hassle of buying vape juice, coils, and batteries. For vapers seeking a portable, no-fuss device, the Orion Bar 7500 is an appealing option with the trusted Lost Vape name.
Size, look, and feel
The Orion Bar 7500 from Lost Vape stands out with its eye-catching aesthetics that will appeal to vapers. The compact yet visually striking design takes cues from classic box mods with its C-frame chassis. Despite the small size, it feels substantial and fits comfortably in hand.
The transparent shell offers a window into the inner workings. One section contains colorful custom graphics that vary by flavor. This artsy touch gives each Orion Bar a unique look while suggesting the e-liquid inside. The other visible component is a wrapped 650mAh battery with Lost Vape branding.
I tried unsuccessfully to disassemble the Orion Bar to examine the interior. This durability test speaks to its solid construction, though the tough plastic shell prevented deeper analysis. While the visual flair may not suit everyone’s taste, there’s no denying the Orion Bar’s bold styling aims to catch the eye of discerning vapers.
The combination of ergonomic shape, visible mechanics, and artistic graphics gives the Orion Bar an undeniably modern vibe. For vapers who appreciate aesthetics along with performance, the Orion Bar 7500 brings attractive flair reminiscent of high-end box mods.
The Orion Bar 7500 comes ready to use right out of the box. Simply remove the disposable device and any protective stickers before vaping.
On the bottom of the Orion Bar is a USB-C charging port for recharging the internal battery when needed. Also located on the bottom is an airflow control switch. Sliding the switch left or right opens or restricts the airflow for looser or tighter draws.
The intuitive plug-and-play design makes the Orion Bar beginner-friendly. Without the need to fill tanks or install coils, vapers can start enjoying the flavor and vapor production immediately. The adjustable airflow adds customization for a personalized vaping experience tailored to individual preferences.
With hassle-free operation, recharging capability, and changeable airflow, the Orion Bar 7500 delivers convenient functionality in a user-friendly format. Vapers of any experience level can appreciate the simplicity of an all-in-one disposable that’s ready for action after a quick unboxing.
How does it hit?
The Orion Bar 7500 offers adjustable airflow ranging from MTL to restricted lung hits. However, I found the tight MTL draw to be lackluster. Opening up the airflow provides a more satisfying restricted lung hit that seems better suited to the device’s performance. Even fully open, the draw feels underpowered compared to similar disposables.
The throat hit misses the mark as well, feeling weak despite the 5% nicotine salt e-liquid. It comes across as synthetic nicotine without much impact. The draw is smooth with no leaking or spitback, but the weak vapor production leaves more to be desired.
In summary, the Orion Bar falls short of excellence when it comes to core vaping performance. While adjustable, the airflow never provides exceptionally strong flavor or vapor, even in the device’s best configuration. The below-average throat hit also diminishes satisfaction for nicotine delivery. An easy, leak-free draw helps, but isn’t enough to make up for the lackluster hit.
Are the flavors any good?
The Orion Bar 7500 comes in 15 flavors that are serviceable but generally muted. While the aroma and natural taste come through, the flavors lack punch even when fully optimized. After sampling the entire lineup, these stood out as the best:
Aloe Grape – A smooth, sweet grape flavor with exotic aloe and moderate coolness. The unique botanical twist makes this a sophisticated all-day vape.
Banana Cake – An appetizing banana baked good aroma precedes the predominant candy-like banana flavor. The cake note comes through on the inhale but takes a backseat on the tongue. Mild cooling lets the dessert profile shine.
Lush Ice – An unexpectedly robust watermelon flavor given an icy kiss. The melon tastes fresh and juicy beyond the typically delicate watermelon flavors. Cooling provides light refreshment.
Sour Apple Ice – As expected, it perfectly captures the “rancher” candy flavor with ample icy menthol to amplify the sour apple. One of the most defined flavors in the lineup.
Cool Mint – A pleasant blend of spearmint and peppermint, though lighter on flavor than the other standouts. Nonetheless, it delivers a refreshing minty experience.
While not as bold or layered as premium liquids, these 5 flavors offer the most satisfying and recognizable profiles. The rest of the options are decent as well but have less distinction. Overall the flavors are enjoyable but leave room for more intensity.
How long do they last?
The Orion Bar 7500 falls short when it comes to battery life and longevity compared to similar disposables. The 650mAh battery feels underpowered and drains faster than expected. It lacks the endurance of competitive models with the same capacity like the Elfbar BC5000.
Additionally, the stated 18mL e-liquid supply seems dubious. The draw often feels stressed, bordering on dry hits as if the juice is already low. This occurs quickly after first use rather than lasting for the advertised 7500 puffs.
Charging takes about 45-60 minutes without pass-thru capability. The Orion Bar must be powered off while charging. Battery life feels anemic overall, and I suspect less than 18mL is actually inside based on the rapid degradation in performance.
For a portable disposable, short battery life and questionable juice capacity significantly reduce convenience and value. Having to recharge frequently and sensing inadequate vapor production too soon are frustrating drawbacks for vapers on the go. In this critical area, the Orion Bar falls way behind disposable rivals.

As a fan of Lost Vape’s premium devices, I eagerly tried the Orion Bar 7500 expecting the same exceptional performance. Unfortunately, this disposable falls short of the standards set by Lost Vape’s reputation.
While the artistic design and sturdy build quality showcase Lost Vape’s style, the lackluster battery life, underwhelming vapor production, and muted flavors left me disappointed. The Orion Bar fails to deliver a consistently satisfying vape compared to top competitors like the Elf Bar.
For casual use, the Orion Bar is an adequately performing disposable that looks cool and offers wide flavor variety. But as a longtime vaper, I know Lost Vape is capable of much better. The company’s name sets higher expectations that the Orion Bar doesn’t live up to.
Unless you’re solely attracted by the aesthetics, I’d recommend passing on the Orion Bar in favor of more flavorful, powerful, and enduring alternatives. There’s room for improvement to meet Lost Vape’s normally high bar of excellence.
