The Wellon Beyond is yet another pod hybrid that unfortunately doesn’t hold up well against the current competition. With the latest release of the VOOPOO VINCI X, a new standard has been set for pod mods in 2019. While the Wellon Beyond Pod is a half-decent vape, the overall aesthetic, eliquid capacity, and also asking price ultimately lets it down.
Wellon was established in 2013 by lead engineer Gavin Zhang. He helped develop the relatively successful Wellon Stan Pod Starter Kit. The simplistic design and affordable nature of this product helped put Wellon on the map. They then followed this up with an aftermarket JUUL charging case that featured a fingerprint scanner. I feel this was when Wellon transformed into a sub-par Alibaba vape manufacturer.
The Wellon Beyond AIO Pod is a relatively compact device that measures 77.6mm’s by 45.5mm’s by 22.8mm’s. It takes a single 18650 battery that can be recharged internally or externally. The side facing adjustment buttons allow you to modify your power output between 5 and 35 watts. This is lower than similar devices that are already on the market.
The patented cartridge design can only hold a measly 2ml of eliquid. That’s nearly half the norm of a typical pod mod. The coils are replaceable though and do produce some decent flavor. The only thing I would question is if these unique shaped coils are going to be available in the near future. The SS316 Wellon mesh coil has a resistance of 0.3 ohms.
The side fire button is responsive and positioned well for thumb firing. Just under that is a 0.96″ inch display screen that puts on view all the necessary details a vaper would require. This includes your wattage, battery, resistance, and also voltage. A small gripe I had with the screen was its viewability in the sunlight. It also had each detail in a different color, making the device look dated.
The Wellon Beyond Pod sadly feels cheap and boxy in hand. The drip tip is interesting but only comes in gold. On either side of the device, there are stroked rectangle cut-outs. This adds nothing to the aesthetic or structure and instead complicates an already cluttered design. If Wellon had just kept things straightforward, this device could have looked ok.
The Wellon Beyond AIO 35W Pod Kit is retailing online for around $40 USD. I feel this is severely over-priced and not competitive in the slightest with other pod mods that are cheaper. If it were selling for let’s say $15-20 USD, then I would be more inclined to consider it worth a purchase. But even then, I would only use it as a throwaway vape.
The Wellon Beyond Pod comes in a handful of average looking colors that include black, gold, silver, purple, red, and mint green. The finish is shiny, but also very flat looking. The packaging is actually pretty modern. The white background contrasts well with a nice 3D render of the pod. Inside you’ll find your Beyond device, cartridge, 2 x coils, USB C charging cable, spare o-rings, and a user manual.
