THE BOTTOM LINE
The Wenax U is another excellent pod vape from Geekvape. It delivers great flavor from the U series pods with a very smooth draw. While it does offer adjustable power and airflow, they are not the best we’ve come across on a pod system. Especially if you like an MTL draw. However, the sleek design and overall vape experience of the Wenax U make it worthwhile.

Specs and Features
Design & Style
The Wenax U takes on a different form factor from other U series devices. However, it’s one I absolutely love for its simplicity and comfort in the hand.
The Wenax U measures 78.2 x 35.4 x 17.25mm in dimension and is like a mini box mod with round edges. Its oval shape conforms perfectly to the palm of your hand, so it can easily be concealed – more so than some disposable box mods we’ve seen recently.
It’s also a relatively lightweight device that only weighs around 50g. This is not only great for when you want to slide it into your pocket but also if you want to dangle it from your neck. Yes, that’s right, the Wenax U also comes with a lanyard in the kit, which anchors to the top corner of the device. While I’m not one for wearing vape pods around my neck, I appreciate the subtle implementation here.
Despite the Wenax U being a lightweight device, it is well-built and quite robust. I believe the main body is made from Aluminum alloy, although it isn’t stated anywhere by Geekvape.
The design of the main body is also executed exceptionally well. I particularly love the green variant we have in for review. All color options have a two-tone style, where the top section is shiny, and the bottom half has a matte finish. It’s very simple but also quite elegant. I also think how they have made the ‘Wenax’ logo go over the dividing line in opposing styles is a very nice touch.
On the side of the Wenax U, you will find the airflow switch, which isn’t the greatest (more on this later), the button for adjusting wattage, and an LED strip. I love that the button and airflow switch are neon colors to stand out.
The device’s top and bottom plastic sections are also in the same neon color, which further adds to the aesthetics. Also, on the base, you will find the USB-C charge port neatly placed on the front section.
Overall I really like what Geekvape has done with the styling of the Wenax U. It’s subtle but elegant and comes with the same excellent build quality we’ve come to expect from Geekvape devices.
The Wenax U is an easy-to-use pod kit, but it does have a few features to keep you covered.
The device has a power button on the side which, when pressed 5 times, will switch it on or off.
It has an inbuilt 1000mAh battery with a maximum power output of 20W. The power output can be adjusted between 3 levels by pressing the button on the device 3 times in succession. The LED light will then light up in different colors to show your setting:
- Low: White LED
- Medium: Blue LED
- High: Green LED
Sadly this is where I have a couple of issues with the Wenax U. Firstly, we don’t actually know what the wattage of each setting is. I know it depends on the coil’s resistance in the pod (0.7Ω would be different from 1.1Ω). However, it would be nice if Geekvape included it in the manual.
Secondly, to see the power setting you have active, you have to press the button 3 times, which incidentally moves the power up a level. There’s no quick press to see what your setting currently is.
The Wenax U also has an adjustable airflow switch on the side. However, the airflow is only really two settings. There is a large airflow hole when the switch is down. This is for a loose MTL (mouth-to-lung) draw, and when the switch is up, there’s a smaller airflow hole for a tight MTL draw.
The device has an LED bar on the side that indicates your wattage setting and is also used for the battery gauge. When you take a draw on the device, it will light up to show you the current battery status.
- Green = 70-100%
- Blue = 31-69%
- Red = 0-30%
The Wenax U has USB-C charging (it comes with a charging cable in the kit) and will recharge in approximately 60 minutes.
Wenax U Pod
The Wenax U only comes with one pod in the kit. It is a U series pod, making it cross-compatible with other U devices, like the Sonder U.
The included pod is a 0.7Ω resistance pod with a wattage range between 16-19W.
It has a 2ml juice capacity, and juice levels can be seen in the pod even though it is quite tinted. However, I still prefer to remove the pod to get a closer look.
The U pod connects to the devices with strong magnets and holds in place well but is still easy to remove.
The fill port is on the pod’s side and gets concealed when the pod is connected to the device. It has an easy-to-open rubber plug and a relatively wide teardrop-shaped fill hole. I’ve had no issues filling it, but take it slow if you try filling it quickly, you may get air bubbles.
The mouthpiece of the pod is of the duck-billed style, just slightly more oval. It’s comfortable to use but a little wider than some other pods.
The U series pods also come in a 1.1Ω resistance, and it would’ve been nice for Geekvape to include one of those. As some may prefer the slightly higher resistance and tighter draw.
I first tested the Wenax U with a 50/50 nicotine salt juice. I wanted to see if it would cope with a thinner liquid without leaking issues. It handled it extremely well, and the pod remained completely dry throughout my testing.
I also tried a 70VG liquid in a separate pod I had to hand, and the U series had no issues wicking with a thicker juice.
As for the performance of the Wenax U and the pods, it’s very good.
The flavor delivered from the 0.7Ω resistance coil is excellent. It’s a smooth draw and is on par with most other top pods on the market.
However, if you are looking for a really tight MTL draw, you may be disappointed. The Wenax U has two airflow settings, and to be honest, there’s not much difference between the two, and on its tightest setting, I would still class it as a medium MTL draw.
The power settings on the device did make a slight difference to the warmth of the vape. But it was not a drastic change between each level, and most of the time, I kept it on the medium (blue) setting. It may have more of an impact when using the 1.1Ω pod.
The battery on the Wenax U does a good job. I was easily making it to the second day of vaping, with relatively heavy use. It also has a decent charge time, so I have no complaints there.
Overall the performance of the Wenax U is excellent, but don’t expect too much control over the airflow or an extremely tight MTL draw.
Geekvape knows what they are doing regarding pod systems, particularly the Wenax range.
While the Wenax U doesn’t blow away the competition with its performance or features. It does compete and delivers a stellar vape experience.
It also has an excellent, classy design that stands out from others on the market.
However, I’m a little disappointed that the adjustable airflow has only two settings and can’t get down to a tight MTL draw.
For those looking for an easy-to-use pod system that delivers excellent flavor with a smooth open MTL draw – then the Wenax U will be a great choice.
