Our Verdict

The Wenax Q and Sonder Q are easily Geekvape’s best pod vapes yet. Not only are they Geekvape’s best pod devices, they’re also certainly some of the best pod vapes on the market right now.

The R&D that Geekvape invested in is noticeable when you vape with these Q series pods. There’s plenty of flavor, excellent wicking capabilities with a variety of ejuices, and consistency from fill to fill.

If you’re looking for a more simple device, the Sonder Q should be your pick. You simply insert a pod, fill it up, and draw on the mouthpiece to vape. The Sonder Q takes care of the rest. If you like to fine-tune your power output and want button activated firing, then go with the Wenax Q. Either way, you’ll be getting a great device that really delivers where it counts with excellent flavor and pod longevity.

The one major drawback to these two pod devices is that even with the airflow almost completely closed, the draw doesn’t get as tight as some might like it to be. They’re still great for MTL vaping, but those who prefer a really tight MTL vape will be left disappointed. 

The Wenax Q and Sonder Q are two of the best pod vapes to come out in 2023 and I can easily recommend them to anyone in search of a new pod device.

BUY SONDER Q

The Wenax Q and Sonder Q are two of the latest pod vapes from GEEKVAPE. While GEEKVAPE is most popular for their box mods like the L200 Classic, T200, and L200 (Legend 2), they’ve been focusing a lot on their pod vapes lately and these two new devices are possibly their best yet.

Both the Wenax Q and Sonder Q use pods with GEEKVAPE’s new VPU technology inside. This technology is the result of months of research into fluid and heat transmission, material safety, and material research. According to Geekvape, these pods produce better clouds, better flavor, and more consistent performance

The Wenax Q features adjustable wattage, while the Sonder Q does not. Both devices have an adjustable airflow slider and a 1000mAh battery that recharges with Type-C charging.

Of course, when any company makes claims this big about the performance of their products, I have to test them out to see if it’s the truth. 

Are the Wenax Q and Sonder Q as good as GEEKVAPE claims?

Design & Build Quality

  • Geekvape Wenax Q - 1

Both the Wenax Q and Sonder Q are simple pod vapes with a clean look to them. The Wenax Q is the taller of the two at 115mm tall (109mm for the Sonder Q), but they’re both the same width and thickness at 23.8mm and 13.8mm, respectively.

This makes them a good size for carrying around with you throughout the day and they’re easy to throw into your pocket or bag. The Wenax Q (the taller of the two) is about the same size as other popular pod vapes on the market, while the Sonder Q is just a tad bit shorter. Regardless of which one you get, they’re a good size for pod vapes.

The Wenax Q comes in 8 different colors which all feature a satin-metallic paint job. There are some really colorful options of Rose Pink and Gradient Violet, as well as sleek and understated ones like Gradient Dark and Black. The surface of the Wenax Q is smooth, so it’s a ‘professional’ and mature looking device.

The Sonder Q comes in slightly more colors with 10 available. Again, there are some really colorful options like Violet Purple and Red Blue, but also neutral options like Black, Gray, and White. The Sonder Q has a ribbed casing which makes it less slippery than the Wenax Q, but also makes it look somewhat cheaper and not as high-end.

  • Geekvape Sonder Q - 1

In addition to the different designs, the Wenax Q has a small HD OLED screen that displays the power output, battery capacity, and puff count. It’s black and white and rather simple but it’s always nice to have a screen of any sort on a pod vape. The Wenax Q also has a single button that can be used to lock the device or change the wattage. 

The Sonder Q does not have a display, nor does it have any buttons. Instead, it has a chrome plate with “SONDER” printed on it. This chrome plate lights up either green, blue, or red whenever you draw on the device, to indicate your battery charge level. 

Both devices have an adjustable airflow slider on the side which can be used in combination with the different pods to achieve anywhere from a RDL draw to a MTL draw. They also have the Type-C charging port located on the other side.


Pods

  • Geekvape Wenax Q - 10

As far as the design goes, both the Wenax Q and Sonder Q are nice but not terribly exciting. Luckily, it’s not the same case with the pods.

Both of these devices use Geekvape’s new “Q Series” pods which have a ton of research and development put into them. These pods use Geekvape’s “VPU” technology which is the result of months of research into fluid and heat transmission, material safety, and material research. According to Geekvape, these pods produce better clouds, better flavor, and more consistent performance.

The pods use VPU-standard qualified non-woven wicking material for better wicking and airflow through the wicks. The pods also use a ceramic core with a pore size in the range of 0.1 to 80 microns. This might sound like technical mumbo-jumbo, but it makes for more consistent flavor when vaping.

In addition to the above, GEEKVAPE performed aerosol analysis to solve the issues of excessive condensation, liquid absorption, and burning. They also analyzed the heavy metal and corrosion content. After placing the heating core in liquid for 10 days, they found no heavy metals or corrosion of the core.

The Wenax Q comes with two pods: a 0.6Ω Q Cartridge and a 1.2Ω Q Cartridge. The Sonder Q only comes with one pod (boo) which is a 0.8Ω Q Cartridge.

The mouthpiece for these pods snaps off to reveal the fill port. It’s super easy to remove, especially when compared to other snap-off fill pods (like Uwell’s Caliburn series), but still stays on there snugly when replaced. It’s easy to fill these pods and mess-free too.

The pods attach magnetically and sit strongly and securely in place. I’ve dropped these a few times and the pods have stayed put, so the magnets are good quality.

A nice thing about these pods is that they are completely clear so it’s easy to see into them. They also sit with a bit of the pod visible when seated, so you can check on your ejuice level easily. If you can’t see your ejuice then it’s below the half-way point and you should refill it again to prevent any dry hits or burning.


Features

Geekvape Wenax Q - 8

Both the Wenax Q and Sonder Q are simple to operate. The Sonder Q is more beginner friendly due to having no buttons and no screen, so it’s a better choice for new vapers. The Wenax Q is slightly more advanced with its display, adjustable wattage, and power button, but still easy enough to use.

The Wenax Q will fire from 5-25W. The wattage is easily adjustable by pressing the fire button three times to unlock it. You can then press the fire button to change the wattage. The 1.2Ω pod can fire up to a max of 12W; you can’t set it any higher than 12W with the 1.2Ω pod. The 0.6Ω cartridge can fire at up to the 25W maximum of the Wenax Q.

The Wenax Q features both draw and button activated firing. You can press the power button five times to lock the power button, for instance if you’re putting the Wenax Q in your pocket and want to prevent accidental firing. Pressing the fire button again five times will turn the device off.

The Sonder Q is the more simple of the two, only requiring you to draw on the device to vape. There’s no adjustable wattage and the 0.8Ω pod will automatically fire at the best wattage as determined by the Sonder Q. 

It’s worth mentioning that all Q series pods are compatible with both the Sonder Q and Wenax Q, so you can pick up any of these pods to use with them.


Battery Life & Charging

Geekvape Sonder Q - 2

The Wenax Q and Sonder Q both have a 1000mAh battery which charges with Type-C charging. How long you’re going to get out of a single charge is going to depend on which pod you’re using and, in the case of the Wenax Q, what wattage you’re vaping at.

Generally, you can expect to get two days of use out of each device with medium-heavy vaping. I personally had to charge them every other day, and that’s while using both at the same time (I vape a lot, I know).

Interestingly enough, charging times came in a bit different between the two even though they presumably have the same charging speed. I timed the Wenax Q at 50 minutes for a full charge, and the Sonder Q at one hour. Not incredibly fast, not slow, but somewhere around average.


Performance

Geekvape Wenax Q - 6

I tested the Wenax Q and Sonder Q with the pods that they came with, these being the 0.6Ω. 0.8Ω, and 1.2Ω Q series cartridges. I had high hopes for these pods, especially because of all of the research and development that Geekvape put into them, and I was not disappointed.

I’ll start off with the Wenax Q. The 0.6Ω pod has a wattage range of 18-25W. I found 18W to be too weak, but the full 25W felt a bit too much. Around the middle of the wattage range, 23W, feels perfect though. There’s a lot of flavor and vapor from this pod and it’s consistent even as the battery dies. RDL is definitely possible if you keep your lips loose around the pod with the airflow open. Closing the airflow allows for a nice MTL draw.

The 1.2Ω pod has a wattage range of 9-12W and all throughout the wattage range is pretty similar. You can get a RDL or loose MTL vape with the airflow open, or a MTL vape with the airflow closed. There’s good flavor and smooth airflow with this pod too, although I think the 0.6Ω pod is the winner for flavor and clouds both.

Geekvape Sonder Q - 6

The 0.8Ω pod with the Sonder Q is a great all-around pod. It’s a nice middle of the road resistance and, as such, is versatile in the types of ejuices that you can vape with it. Freebase ejuices, low strength nicotine salts, and high strength nicotine salt ejuices alike all vape great with this pod. 

Keeping the airflow open allows for a loose MTL vape, while closing the airflow achieves a nice MTL draw. The flavor is similarly as good as the other pods here and you can get some good clouds with the airflow open and freebase ejuices.

I’ve refilled each of these pods at least 5 times and their longevity is impressive. Each one is still very flavorful and wicking well, with no leaking at all. I’ve even run these pods down to having no ejuice inside of them and gotten the beginning of a dry hit. But once I refilled them, it’s as if it never happened and the performance wasn’t affected at all.


Verdict

The Wenax Q and Sonder Q are easily Geekvape’s best pod vapes yet. Not only are they Geekvape’s best pod devices, they’re also certainly some of the best pod vapes on the market right now.

The R&D that Geekvape invested in is noticeable when you vape with these Q series pods. There’s plenty of flavor, excellent wicking capabilities with a variety of ejuices, and consistency from fill to fill.

If you’re looking for a more simple device, the Sonder Q should be your pick. You simply insert a pod, fill it up, and draw on the mouthpiece to vape. The Sonder Q takes care of the rest. If you like to fine-tune your power output and want button activated firing, then go with the Wenax Q. Either way, you’ll be getting a great device that really delivers where it counts with excellent flavor and pod longevity.

The one major drawback to these two pod devices is that even with the airflow almost completely closed, the draw doesn’t get as tight as some might like it to be. They’re still great for MTL vaping, but those who prefer a really tight MTL vape will be left disappointed. 

The Wenax Q and Sonder Q are two of the best pod vapes to come out in 2023 and I can easily recommend them to anyone in search of a new pod device.

  • Hi! What is the difference between the GeekVape Q pods? Like the 1.2, 0.6, and 0.8. What would I say to new time customers when they ask what the difference is in the pod sizes?
    P.S I work for Good Guy Vapes and sell a lot of GeekVapes. Thank you!

    • Hey there. The different resistance pods work at different wattages so the flavor and warmth of the draw are slightly different between them. The higher resistance pods are also better for higher-strength nic salt ejuices. The quick breakdown is:

      – 0.6Ω pod: Best for low strength nicotine salt ejuices (20mg/ml or less) or freebase nicotine ejuices.
      – 0.8Ω pod: Works with all sorts of ejuices (freebase ejuices, low strength nic salts, high strength nic salts)
      – 1.2Ω pod: Best with higher strength nicotine salt ejuices.

      It’s going to come down to personal preference which pod you prefer as they all vape slightly differently in terms of the warmth and flavor. I would suggest having your customers use the pods that come with the device, then try other pods for the device in the future. Then, they can decide which they like best. Hope this helps you and your customers!
