A simple and effective pod
The Wenax Q is a simple, practical pod. You can use it in automatic mode or choose from a few settings – either way, it delivers quality vapour whichever coil you use. It’s a well-finished, effective device.

What’s in the box?
Excellent performance, as always
A small slider on the side of the Wenax Q lets you adjust the airflow to cool the coil inside the cartridge. When it’s fully open, it reveals three holes – this will give you a very tight direct draw. If you close it almost completely you get the opposite effect – a tight draw for indirect inhalation (into your mouth then into your lungs, like a tobacco cigarette). The airflow slider doesn’t move unless you move it, but it slides fairly easily without much effort when you do.
There’s a USB-C connector on the opposite side for recharging the device and its built-in 1000 mAh battery. The battery is average for pods of this size on the market. Its battery life is what you’d expect for the ohm values of the coils it’s sold with and guarantees long vaping sessions with no battery-life worries. You can vape while it’s charging.
On the front face there’s a small monochrome screen and the fire button, which also serves to adjust the settings. The screen is bright, and it’s easy to read the information displayed, even when you use it outdoors in very bright sunshine. The button sits right under your finger. It lights up when you press it and during charging.
The Wenax Q can deliver up to 25 W of power. Pressing the fire button three times in a row opens the settings menu, where you can choose the power level. Each subsequent button push ups the power by 1 W.
Once you’ve chosen the power level, you have to wait a few seconds for the Wenax Q to save the setting. It takes five quick pushes to switch the pod on or off, which is actually very handy for when it’s in a pocket or bag.
Although you can set the power level yourself, the Wenax Q knows what cartridge value you’ll need and automatically suggests the right value.
Press the button or just inhale to make vapour. We didn’t notice any lag between starting to inhale and it starting to make vapour.
Our one came with two cartridges. One was 0.6 ohm, for use between 18 and 25 W and the other 1.2 ohm cartridge works from 8 to 12 W. The 1.2 ohm one is designed for indirect inhalation while the higher value one delivers much bigger clouds.
Two magnets hold the cartridges onto the top of the pod body and they do a brilliant job. The hold is excellent and we didn’t notice any sideways play or other annoying movement while we had it to our lips.
You fill the cartridge in the usual way. Just remove the mouthpiece at access the filling hole. We’d recommend using narrow bottle tips to make filling easier and to avoid any spills from the 2 ml cartridge. The Wenax Q and Sonder Q use the same cartridges so they’re compatible with both models. Like the Sonder Q, it delivers excellent, reliable flavours.
We got the best results with fruity flavours. The only thing we didn’t like was that is uses disposable cartridges, so you have to throw the whole tank away when the coil wears out.
