Design & Quality

Body

The Geekvape Sonder U elevates the traditional pod vape pen style with a visually crisp-looking body. The body is a matte textured plastic, which makes for a great tactile hand feel. The front of the device includes a shiny metallic plaque with the Sonder branding. Just under the plaque is a small LED that lights up when inhaling or charging the device. The Geekvape branding is embossed vertically along the back of the pod system.

The Geekvape Sonder U is available in 8 beautiful colors: Black, Pink, Gray, Celeste Gaze, Wine Red, Majestic Sky, Light Green, and White.

On the right side of the device, located near the top, you’ll find the Type-C charging port. The Sonder U kit doesn’t come with any charging cable, but you can use any standard Type-C cable you have access to.

Pod Cartridge

Geekvape Sonder U pods

The Sonder U pods (aka U pods) are refillable and have a 2mL capacity. Each refillable pod contains a 0.7-ohm mesh coil for superior flavor delivery and smooth hits and can be refilled roughly 5x for a lifetime use of 10mL per pod. And the pods are made of black-tinted transparent plastic so that you can keep a close eye on the e-juice level within the pod. Strong magnets secure the pods to the Geekvape Sonder U body.

The U pods are refilled by removing the silicone stopper located just under the mouthpiece. The side-fill port makes it easy to refill the pods without making a mess. The pod mouthpiece is a standard duckbill-style mouthpiece found in other popular pod systems like the Smok Nord 4.

Battery & Charging

Geekvape Sonder U includes a high-capacity 1000mAh battery with an exceptional staying power of up to 2 days of battery life. This places the device far above many mid to low-range pod systems and is a great addition to an already fantastic device. You will spend less time tied to a charging cable and have more freedom to enjoy your vape on the go.

The Geekvape Sonder U is easily rechargeable using a Type-C charging cable and plugging it into the port located on the right side of the device. The mod charges fairly quickly for such a large battery, and you can expect a full charge in about 45 minutes. The LED on the front of the device will light up during charging. You can also continue to vape when the pod vape is charging, a feature that is not available with all vapes.

Durability

While the Geekvape Sonder U pod system is a beautiful device that offers a delightful vaping experience, we’re unsure about its long-term durability. The device is extremely lightweight, which is partly due to the nature of the plastic body. The plastic is not as sturdy as we’d like and when the pod is removed the top of the mod flexes without much pressure. If this device was stepped on with enough force or dropped without the pod installed, we could definitely see it cracking.

The Geekvape Sonder U also appears to have some void space within the body, as it sounds slightly hollow when you tap along the back of the device.

Does the Geekvape Sonder U leak?

Pod vapes are sometimes leaky little devices, but this isn’t the case with the Sonder U. There was no leakage or spit-back observed when testing this device. We felt very comfortable carrying it around in my pocket, knowing it wouldn’t leak e-juice all over our clothing.

Ergonomics

The design of the Geekvape Sonder U is user-friendly and comfortable to hold while vaping. The textured body offers a nice grip and feels satisfying in your hand. And its compact and lightweight size also makes it easy to use discreetly.

Function

To get started with the Sonder U, all you need to do is fill the pod with your favorite e-juice flavor, wait a few minutes for the mesh coil cotton to be saturated in e-juice, and then insert the pod cartridge in the body. At that point you can start inhaling and the auto draw sensor will activate.

Performance

Geekvape Sonder U pod vape kit

The Geekvape Sonder U is a must-have for any vaper looking for a compact and convenient device that delivers an outstanding vaping experience. The flavor delivery is top-notch, the hits are incredibly smooth, and the cloud volume is mind-blowing. The device’s auto-draw firing system is responsive and quiet, making it easy to use, simply inhale from the mouthpiece to vape.

It is a mouth-to-lung (MTL) device, which means it is designed for vapers who prefer a tighter draw and a more cigarette-like experience. This type of device is great for beginners as it mimics the sensation of smoking and can help with the transition to vaping.

The Geekvape Sonder U uses a 0.7-ohm mesh coil, which is ideal for MTL vaping. Mesh coils are known for their large surface area, which means they can heat up quickly and evenly. This results in a more consistent and flavorful vape. The 0.7-ohm resistance is also perfect for MTL vaping as it provides a balance between vapor production and flavor.

Ease of Use

The Geekvape Sonder U has no advanced features like different modes or adjustable wattage. There is no manual airflow control or any other adjustments associated with the device. The pods come with a non-removable mesh coil, so there is no need to handle coil changes. This makes the Sonder U a perfect device for beginners. It offers a low barrier of entry into the vaping world for new vapers that want to learn how to manage a pod system but without the complex features that are often included in these types of devices.

You will need to purchase new pods relatively frequently, every 10 mL or so. And you’ll also need to purchase your own e-juice because this is not a disposable that comes with a prefilled tank, but all that is pretty standard.

The Geekvape Sonder U also comes with a short User Manual, so you can follow the simple setup guide and learn about its components if that’s of interest.

Price

  • Geekvape Sonder U Price: $10.88 at Eightvape

The Geekvape Sonder U is a very affordable option for those newbies that want to give vaping a try. At only around $10, you can get started with the pod vape with a minimal investment. The cheap pricing goes a long way toward explaining the flimsy feeling of the plastic, but the Sonder U is still a great entry-level device.

Verdict

The Geekvape Sonder U is a sleek and compact pod vape that offers a powerful 20-watt output and a long-lasting 1000mAh rechargeable battery. Its side-fill port and textured body make it easy to use and carry, and its sensitive auto-draw feature is suitable for both new and experienced vapers. The device is available in 8 beautiful colors, and the 2mL refillable pods have a 0.7-ohm mesh coil for superior flavor delivery. The Geekvape Sonder U also has a 2-day battery life and the freedom to use your favorite salt nic brands.

However, the device’s durability may be questionable as it is lightweight and flexes without much pressure. Additionally, it sounds slightly hollow when tapped along the back of the device. Despite these concerns, the Sonder U does not leak or spit back, giving you peace of mind when carrying around the device. Overall, this is a great addition to the pod system market with its user-friendly design and exceptional staying power.
