GeekVape Sonder U ReviewSeptember 18, 2023
The GeekVape Sonder U is not a new kit by any means. It’s been on the scene for quite a while, but despite it’s age, it doesn’t seem to be leaving the shelves any time soon.
With that in mind, I thought it was time to finally take the plunge and pick one up. Marketed as a compact pod kit equipped with a 1000mAh battery, this device is tailored for MTL vapers across the spectrum of experience. So, did this petite powerhouse meet stand up to the test? Check out my GeekVape Sonder U Review below to find out.
GeekVape Sonder U Review: Small Device, Big Performance
Upon first inspection, the GeekVape Sonder U hardly dazzles with its design, opting instead for a minimalist approach that left me distinctly unimpressed. Unfortunately, this simplicity also extends to the material quality, as the kit’s body has a cheap plastic feel that detracts from its overall appeal. While the device is indeed portable due to its slim build, this doesn’t compensate for its lacklustre appearance. Even the addition of a wine red colour option struggles to elevate what comes across as a rather basic and uninspiring kit design. I’ve honestly seen more attractive disposable vapes.
Functionality and Ease of Use
When it comes to functionality, the Sonder U keeps it refreshingly simple. The draw-activated firing mechanism eliminates the need for button pressing, offering a straightforward experience for those who prefer a no-fuss approach. In a market filled with complex devices sporting an array of bells and whistles, the unpretentious operation of the Sonder U is a breath of fresh air.
Changing Pods and Coils
Switching out the pod is a breeze — simply pull out the old one and click in a new one. Strong magnets and a large pod bay secure the pod firmly, minimising the risk of it being knocked out of place. For this test, we used the included 0.7ohm coil.
Flavour and Performance
I tested the device using Above Ohm’s Fruit Tart e-liquid. Often, devices struggle with capturing the true essence of sweet flavours, but the Sonder U actually delivered with flying colours. Not only was the flavour spot-on, but the throat hit was also incredibly smooth, making for a delightful vaping experience.
Despite a poor first impression, the GeekVape Sonder U has managed to win me over with it’s “Function over form” approach. What stands out about the GeekVape Sonder U is its impressive flavour delivery, particularly considering its uncomplicated operation. It proves to be an excellent choice for newcomers to vaping or for those contemplating a switch from disposable to reusable vape kits.
For vapers seeking a straightforward yet highly effective device, the GeekVape Sonder U offers a compelling package. Simple, efficient, and satisfying — it ticks all the right boxes, so long as you don’t care what your kit looks like!
