Hello ECF! Today I am reviewing for you the Wellon LUX. From the makers of the not-so-popular Ripple, comes Wellon's latest addition to the pod scene. This time around, they've gone the way of the juul with a more compact design and more appealing aesthetic. After the flop of the Ripple, has Wellon redeemed themselves? Read below to find out.

I have used the LUX for 3 weeks now and feel I can give a fair assessment of its quality.

This device was sent to me by Wellon Tech for the purpose of a review.

The Wellon LUX is an ultra-portable pod system with very similar stylings to the crazy popular JUUL device. The device itself is comprised mainly of the battery with pods you can insert into the top. This is all pretty standard stuff for a pod-based system. There's nothing really revolutionary here, although, the LUX incorporates a few nice design features. Being that this is a pod system, and given it's simplicity, there's not really much to say, so let's jump right into it.

Device: The main portion of the LUX is the battery portion, which houses a 450mAh rechargeable battery. Pods are inserted into the top of the device and connects to contact points inside the housing. In the center of the housing is a small hole that feeds the airflow from the bottom of the device, through the pod. There are also two slits, one on either side of the device, towards the top that help to seat the pod and allow you to see your juice level.

The LUX is a draw-activated device, so there are no buttons to press, which helps it maintain its sleek appearance. Towards the bottom of the device is a cutout of the word "LUX" which houses an LED indicator: Green=60-100%; Blue=20-60%; White=0-20%; Red=Completely drained. When first inserting a pod, the LED flashes for 2 seconds indicating the pod has been detected and is ready to use. Charging the LUX from empty is a fairly quick affair, taking only about 2 hours to do.

Pods: The LUX pods have a resistance of 1.4ohm, hold 1.2mL of eliquid and have a ceramic heating element. The pod comes in two pieces: the main body of the pod and the mouthpiece. The mouthpiece acts as a cover for the pod and closes off the fill ports. There are two small fill ports on the top of the pod and really require a needle-tipped bottle to fill. Having the two ports is a good idea as it allows air to escape while filling and helps prevent bubbles from forming and preventing you to fill the pod. Also, on either side of the device is a small piece that sticks out and sits into the groves on the top of the battery. This allows you to easily see your juice level, which is definitely a plus. The draw on the pods is a a bit of a loose MTL draw and can be hit as a restricted DTL.

Performance: The main things I concern myself with when it comes to pod systems are battery life, draw consistency, coil flavor, coil longevity, looks, and time to charge. Battery life on the LUX is pretty good. Lasting me several days of intermittent use. I mainly use pod systems as stealth vapes while in my cubicle, so they don't really see much constant action, but lasting several days is definitely a plus. The LUX also charges fairly quickly. It's not too much of a concern for me primarily using these devices at my work desk as I also have a way to charge it. The LED indicator is nice so you can be sure to charge it up before you hit the road to ensure you have enough battery life. The look and styling of the LUX is also quite nice as it's not gaudy and looks professional. I'd rather be vaping on something that looks like the LUX while in my cube as apposed to something that's got clowns or some crazy wrap on it.

Coils seemed to last an okay amount of time. I was able to refill the pods a few times before I felt I needed to change them. However, at about $5 a pod I should be able to get 5 plus fills easily out of them. This was not the case. Flavor for the pods started pretty good. I was very surprised at how decent the flavor was. Again, that too faded too quickly and feel like for the price it should last a lot longer than it does. The draw on the LUX was a bit inconsistent. For a draw activated device this is one thing that needs to be right. However, the device occasionally dropped power while I was taking a drag. This was more of an issue while using an MTL approach. I did not have this issue while taking DTL hits. Regardless, these pods systems are mainly MTL devices and should hit consistently as such.​

Final Thoughts

  • Ultra portable
  • Professional style
  • Can see juice level without removing pod
  • LED indicator
  • Charges quickly
  • Battery life
  • Initial flavor
  • Requires needle-tipped bottle
  • For the price, the pods should last longer
  • Flavor fell off sharply
  • Inconsistent draw
  • Pods are expensive

I really think this device could be so much better than it currently stands. They got some things right, however, it falls short in all the places that really matter. This was the case with the Ripple, and Wellon has followed suit with the LUX. I think if they work on their pods a bit more this could be a real competitor in the pod marketplace.

Thank you...
