Geekvape Sonder U Kit Review

By Peach Atkinson 11th February 2023 3 Mins


This week, I got the opportunity to try out the Sonder U kit by leading vape manufacturer Geekvape.

Device Specifications:

  • Charging – USB-C
  • Battery capacity – 1,000mAh
  • Pod capacity – 2ml
  • Max wattage – 20W

With ease of use and practicality at its very core, the Sonder U was both easy-to-use and effective.

The device itself was small and unassuming, giving off an extremely uncomplicated vibe by doing away with display screens and fire buttons.

It’s clear that simplicity was key during the design process of the Sonder U…and I have to say, I was a big fan.

The lack of fire buttons means the device included a draw activation feature, allowing users to operate the vape with ease.

Not to mention the ideal shape and size of the Sonder U, with the lightweight, ergonomic proportions making it comfortable to hold and carry.

Coils and Pods

The device makes use of built-in coils, meaning once they are no longer usable, you have to dispose of the whole pod.

Luckily, the coil life on these pods was pretty standard and each lasted about a week of moderate to heavy usage.

And rather than having that usual strong burning taste, I found there was only a small level of flavour dissipation to indicate that perhaps it was time to change.

To fill the pods, you simply need to open a small rubber gasket on the side and squeeze your e-liquid bottle until it is full.

Another small feature I enjoyed was that the pods were very easy to see through, reducing any risks of overfilling.

Over the course of about a week or so, I did notice a small amount of condensation build up, but that was easily remedied by quickly wiping the base of the pod when refitting it to the top of the device.

What e-liquid works best with the Sonder U?

The Sonder U works best with 50/50 VG/PG e-liquids due to their less pronounced viscosity…I personally went with a 50/50 20mg nicotine salt e-liquid.

Even with a high strength nicotine, the draw was incredibly smooth and the flavour produced was mellow and full bodied.

I would say that the type of inhale I got with this kit was a loose mouth-to-lung, so it worked wonders with the nicotine salts.

How long does the Sonder U take to charge?

The 1,000mAh built-in battery held up remarkably well and I only had to charge it once during the day and once in the evening.

To charge, the Sonder U uses a USB-C port and was full and ready to go within about 25-30 minutes.

In terms of durability, this device is deceivingly sturdy and managed to withstand several accidental drops.

Overall, I was impressed with the Sonder U…especially its sheer simplicity and user friendly nature.

It delivered a reliable vaping experience and you could really tell that Geekvape has decided to focus on the important things with this device.


  • Easy to operate
  • Simple yet effective
  • Fast charging time


  • I would’ve liked to see a USB-C cable or a spare pod included in the box
