Lost Vape Centaurus B60 AIO Boro kit

Antony gets hands on with the Lost Vape Centaurus B60 AIO Boro kit

Share on:

Just before Vaper Expo in October last year (wow, that seems like a long time ago already!), Lost Vape announced that they would be releasing not one but two Boro compatible devices in the form of the Centaurus B60 and B80 AIO kits. I managed to find these on the Lost Vape stand, but they were kind of hidden away in a corner and weren’t being heavily promoted as staff on the booth said they wouldn’t be going to ship until mid-November at the earliest, but even with the limited information available at the time, I came away intrigued. Fast forward a couple of months and our friends over at Sourcemore have been kind enough to send the Centaurus B60 AIO which has an internal battery and a rather unusual form factor for a Boro device which I found rather fetching from my earlier encounter.


  • 44.3 x 25.5 x 85mm
  • 154 grams (excluding Boro tank)
  • 1600 mAh internal battery
  • Output 5~60 Watts
  • resistance range 0.15~2.0 ohms
  • 2 Amp charging via USB-C
  • UB AIO (Boro) pod included with two UB Ultra coils

Lost Vape Centaurus B60 AIO Boro kit unboxing

The Centaurus B60 AIO is available in eight colour options and couple of these are rather garish, but luckily I was sent the nice sensible “Cyber Storm” variant which has a silver/grey chassis coupled with clear plastic side panels. You also get two drip tips, a 510 nut tool, the UB AIO Pod, and two coils, along with a USB-C charge cable and a brief instruction manual.

Lost Vape Centaurus B60 AIO Boro kit first look

Externally the Centaurus B60 follows the classic square Boro mod design for the most part although it’s a little narrower than a billet box thanks to its internal 1600mAh battery which is one of the things that initially drew me to this design. It’s surprisingly heavy due to its zinc alloy construction, but that is reflected in the price point which makes it much more affordable than if it had been constructed from aluminium, for example.

The side panels are plastic and are held in place by magnets at the corners, and in this Cyber Storm variant, they’re clear giving you a nice view of your Boro tank. The panel on this side also has extra airflow holes cut in for tanks that take air only from the side. I’ve had experience with plastic side panels on Boro mods before and had issues with cracks forming in the corners and the magnets falling out (within days on one occasion), but I’ve been using this as my primary device for almost a month and can happily report no such issues so far. There is a bit of excess movement in the panels as well which might be worth bearing in mind if you think this is likely to drive you to distraction.

One curious design decision has been to move the control panel to the “front”, much like a traditional box mod, with a round fire button up top and an up/down button below with a small 0.42 inch led panel sat in the middle. This caused me no end of upset over the first few days as I tried to figure out the best way to hold the Centaurus B60 without blocking the airflow, and in the end I found that the best option was to thumb fire it in both a left and right handed grip.

Lost Vape Centaurus B60 AIO Boro kit charging port

Removing the back panel exposes the built in USB-C charge port on a large plastic side panel. In my test, this hit a peak charge rate of 1.56 Amps with a recorded capacity of 1490mAh after just 1 hour and 9 minutes. The relatively small battery capacity could be a bug bear for some as this is firmly in the pod mod range so although you have a 60 watt output available, don’t expect stellar battery life if you’re a higher wattage vaper!

Lost Vape Centaurus B60 AIO Boro connection

Moving around to the other side, you’ll find a standard Boro sized recess for your tanks which is on the normal (right) side so getting air to your bridges shouldn’t be an issue. Lost Vape has gone for a non-standard approach to the contacts at the base though opting for two spring loaded contacts (one positive, one negative) rather than the usual single positive contact. The top (negative) 510 nut is also non-standard so anyone looking to use their integrated drip tips will be frustrated as these don’t go all the way down and fail to make a proper contact….whatever you do don’t lose this or get it mixed in with a pile of other random 510 nuts!

Lost Vape Centaurus B60 AIO Boro tank and coils

Also included in the package is the UB AIO Pod along with two UB Ultra Coils. I’ve used the coils before and they’re pretty decent, plus they’re Kanthal so are suitable for anyone with nickel sensitivity problems like me, and these are press fit into the base of the 5ml PCTG tank.

So what’s the overall experience like out of the box? Well I can tell you that the first 24 hours were an exercise in frustration with random short circuit errors popping up regularly. Once I’d gotten home from work on the second day, I did a little bit of trouble shooting to see if I could track down the cause of the issue, was it the pod or those weird two contacts at the bottom of the Boro enclosure?

Lost Vape Centaurus B60 AIO Boro tank installed

The first thing I did was to take the UB AIO Pod and see if this would work on another Boro mod. The short answer is NO, I tried this on four other devices, and they all reported a “short circuit” or “no atomiser” error. Placing the pod back into the Centaurus B60, I found that I could get a contact if I installed the tank and pressed this down onto the contacts with my fingers with the 510 nut absent which leads me to conclude that this absolutely needs that extra negative contact at the base to operate. This means that this isn’t actually a Boro compatible tank at all despite being the same shape and the fact that it won’t even work consistently in the Centaurus B60 either just rubs salt in the wound. My advice here would be if you’re buying one of these kits is to take the UB AIO Pod and throw it straight into the bin, you’ll save yourself a lot of headaches. Quite simply, it’s junk!

With this out of the way, it was time to see if those two contacts at the base were going to throw up any other issues. I tried a few other Boro bridges and most worked fine although anything with an open airflow at the base like the Exocet v2 won’t work as this simply won’t even touch the positive contact. Some bridges that use their own integrated/proprietary tanks might have issues as well as they might not fit (I had to use a screwdriver to prise one tank out) or be difficult to position correctly with those spring loaded pins at the base. No Boro device is perfect in this regard and whilst this will work with the vast majority of bridges, there are definitely issues here.


  • Low cost of entry
  • unique design thanks to integrated 1600mAh battery
  • compatible with most Boro Bridges


  • The included UB AIO Pod is junk and not Boro compatible
  • can’t use your own integrated drip tips


Sourcemore have given me a discount code to use for the Centaurus B60 AIO, LCBA will grab you the kit for just $34.39 which has to make this one of the most budget friendly Boro devices so far. There are issues though as the included UB AIO Pod simply doesn’t work and isn’t strictly Boro compatible so if you haven’t already bought into the world of Boro devices, you’re going to need to factor in the cost of another tank and bridge which make this slightly less appealing.

The relatively low capacity internal battery means that this is probably best for the low wattage vapers out there, and I’ve been treating this as a mouth to lung device where it works just fine. If you like to blow clouds, even modest ones, then you’ll probably be better off looking at the Centaurus B80 AIO which uses a standard 18650 battery. Come to think of it, if you’re eyeing up one of these as your first Boro device then the B80 would probably still be a better choice as you also get a rebuildable tank/bridge included there as well.

Whilst this does work quite well overall and I’ve enjoyed my time with the Centaurus B60 AIO, I can’t ignore some of the obvious flaws in the design so I’m awarding this a 6/10.

I was a twenty a day smoker for 25 years and like most smokers I was always going to quit "next week". Having hit my mid forties and having the usual smokers cough and difficulty with anything more than moderate exercise it was obviously time to give up the cancer sticks. I bought my first e-cigarette in 2013 when they were expensive, difficult to find and quite frankly... crap. I used it for about a week then went back to the roll ups, mark up another failed quit attempt. The fact that I had just changed jobs and was under quite a lot of stress probably didn't help. Move on to 2016 and whilst I was browsing eBay I noticed that one of the suggested items that would occasionally pop up was for a cheap e-cigarette. It looked similar to the one I'd bought 3 years earlier but it was only £5 (about 8 times cheaper than before) so I decided to give it another go on a whim. Once the kit arrived I managed to gradually replace the cigarettes with my new kit over a two month period and got into watching YouTube reviews for newer kit. My cheap and cheerful kit was replaced by a more upmarket affair, and being a noob I made a mistake once it arrived... I put in the supplied direct lung coil, this was of course a complete revelation and I haven't touched a cigarette since. Oh and I no longer spend the first five minutes of every day having a coughing fit either.
