Lost Vape Drone DNA166 BF Mod Preview

The dual-cell Drone BF comfortably fills the gap between the Therion and Triade, with typical Lost Vape flair.

Lost Vape Drone DNA250 BF Mod Intro

Never seeming to settle, Lost Vape has announced yet another DNA based mod: the dual-cell Drone DNA166 BF.

That’s right, it’s a squonker.

Lost Vape has been giving us some of the very best mods integrating the Evolv DNA chip for some time, and the Drone is another exceptionally designed box. Looking very much like a Triade with its polygonal shape, the Drone sacrifices one of the Triade’s three batteries to allow room for the onboard juice bottle. With the Drone, Lost Vape neatly fills the gap between the Triade and their single-cell Therion squonker, and the dual-cell Drone should provide enough run time to keep BF enthusiasts happily squonking all day long.

The Drone pairs a centered 510 connector with enough output power to make the Drone a perfect platform for driving crazy wire mass in large bottom-fed RDAs like the Goon LP.

Even though the Drone has a DNA250 chip at its heart, the peak output wattage of the mod is governed at 167 watts, possibly due to battery considerations. If so, I applaud Lost Vape for erring on the side of caution.

Successful squonking

Lost Vape Drone BF

Lost Vape has been on a roll releasing one DNA powered box after another, with each new box improving on the last. I have a Triade that is like the crown jewel of my collection, and even though it isn’t the most expensive, it looks the part.

The design team at Lost Vape seems to have a knack for integrating interesting curves, angles, and various organic materials like wood and leather into their mods to make them stand apart ergonomically and visually. No doubt their mods are pricey, but it still feels like you are getting a pretty good bang for your buck when you pick one up and use it.

With its signature Lost Vape design and rock solid Evolv chipset, I expect the Drone DNA166 BF will be no exception to the Lost Vape formula by providing reliable regulated performance in a beautifully stylized form factor.

Aaaah, it’s good to be a squonker.
