Wellon Ripple Pod System

User impressions:

The Wellon Ripple is an interesting pod system, being the first we’ve seen with a skin activated switch. This operates via metallic tabs on each side of the mouthpiece, which when contacted by the user’s lips initiates a galvanic response that fires the coil.

Whilst this is different to the more usual air activated switch, functionality remains the same…so this can’t really be called a selling feature. Unless of course the catchy slogan “Just one kiss & enjoy a great vape” was hatched ahead of the actual product design.

As for actual vaping, we’d call it reasonable, but for a mouth to lung device it is [very] airy. This can be adjusted [slightly] by gripping the entire device in the fist to limit air flow, but even then the vapor production is a little disappointing considering the 650mAh battery and 1.4Ohm coil.

On the plus side, it does have outstanding battery life, an ultra-durable ceramic coil, and zero leak performance.

As it stands however, the Ripple will not be taking on the Rulers Of The Podiverse. Mind you, if the designers paid a bit more attention to airflow, as opposed to the gimmicky galvanics, it could have been truly awesome.

Kind of a shame really.

Ripple Pod


Rugged, durable design

Zero leaks

Excellent battery life with 650 mAh

Super simple refilling

Relatively high air flow may not suit everyone’s taste

Flavour & vapor are both somewhat muted

Kit sells for $39…in our opinion a little high for this device

Replacement pods retail at $9 each
