VAPORESSO LUXE Q POD KIT features a 1000mAh battery, draw-activated firing mechanism, and can hold up to 2mL within the pod. Constructed from durable zinc-alloy, the chassis of the LUXE Q Pod System is impervious to light falls and drops. Wrapped in a leather-textured coating, the chassis is anti-slip and anti-sweat. Maintaining a diminutive size, the LUXE Q Pod System is about the same length as a credit card, making it easy to conceal and bring about. Outfitted with a 2mL refillable pod with integrated coil options, the Vaporesso LUXE Q offers a 0.8ohm and 1.2ohm Mesh Coil to deliver outstanding flavor from your favorite eJuice or nicotine salt. Equipped with a 1000mAh rechargeable battery, the LUXE Q does not feature any buttons or screens to save power, relying on a draw-activated firing mechanism and tri-colored LED indicator light, instead.

Product intro and specs
The Luxe Q is the latest pod system by Vaporesso, which has established itself as one of the best vape manufacturers in the industry with many great devices over the past few years. The Luxe Q is a sleek pod vape in a small package with a clear focus on ease of use and portability. Its internal battery is listed at 1000 mAh and comes with pods with a 2 mL capacity. This is a traditional pod system because its pods are refillable, but the coils are built into the pods and are not replaceable.
Vaporesso has produced a variety of devices in this product category, with some of them (like the Xros and the Small) hitting or even exceeding expectations. Keep reading to determine if the Luxe Q is the beginner-friendly pod system you’ve been looking for.
Build quality and design
The Luxe Q is a small stick-styled pod vape, similar in footprint to most compact pod systems. Measuring 91.85 mm x 26 mm x 16.5 mm, it’s shorter than the Caliburn G but a little thicker and wider, depending on your shape. It also weighs very little but feels solid in hand. You can tell it’s well built and can survive everyday use and drops. The body comes with a “leather texture,” which lends it a leathery look but is hard. They don’t list the material, but it feels like some hard plastic. It is “anti-smudge,” so no fingerprints get left on the panels.
The Luxe Q is offered in seven colors, and they all come with a silver frame, except for the black and brown editions, whose frame appears to be gunmetal. I got the green one for review, and the silver frame with green panels looks great. There are no buttons on the device, just a LED battery indicator at the top that is easy to see. All in all, it’s a pretty standard stick-style pod system, but it is well-built and done right.
The most important part of any pod device is the coils—lots of nice systems have been ruined by poor coils. Vaporesso pod systems have had really good coils as of late, so we’ll see how this stacks up. Also worth noting is that since these coils are encased in the pod, they aren’t compatible with other Vaporesso devices.
The Luxe Q comes with two pod options:
A 0.8-ohm mesh pod
A 1.2-ohm mesh pod
Both pods offer a solid MTL vape. Not a tight one, but not loose enough to be a DL vape. I started with the 1.2-ohm mesh pod. I used 50/50 20 mg nic salt juices, and the flavor was great for a pod system. Very comparable to the top pods on the market. I ran 18 mL of juice in it, and it was still good but starting to die. Really good coil life for a device like this that doesn’t burn much juice. I typically look for around 10 mL of life in coils like these, so the 1.2-ohm coil passes that. Overall, a great pod with no complaints.
Then I used the 0.8-ohm pod with 50/50 20 mg nic salt juice. The flavor was good as well. Slightly better than the 1.2, but nothing major. It hits a little harder and produces more vapor, but not a major difference. As for coil life, I vaped 18 mL of juice, and it was still good but starting to die. Both pods come with good coils, so it’s up to preference. Can’t go wrong either way. Very happy with the performance of these pods.
It’s also worth noting that I’ve had zero leaking with the Luxe Q—not even a tiny bit of condensation after leaving it unused for days. The device features an anti-leaking tech that Vaporesso calls “SSS” (Seal comprehensively, Saturate properly, Store safely). They don’t offer much information about it, but it works and makes the device practically leak-free.
Battery life and charging
Battery life on this device will vary due to your vaping habits and which pod you use. The Luxe Q comes with an internal battery listed at 1000 mAh. They also list the charge rate at 1A, a charge time of 60 minutes, and the port is USB C. The charging port is at the lower part of the backside and not at the bottom, so you can stand it up while charging. I tested their ratings, and for the charge rate, I got a max of 0.99A, which is on point. I timed a full charge at 64 minutes, so again great rating and close to the one hour, which is what I look for in vapes like this one.
I measured battery capacity at around 952 mAh, which is very close to their rating. All three ratings are dead on, so good job on Vaporesso for accurately representing their product. You get what they promise, which is important to me and why I do all this testing. In real usage, you can vape through two pods before charging, which is an “all-day vape” for most people. The LED acts as a battery meter and works well:
- Green: 70-100%
- Blue: 30-70%
- Red: 0-30%
Good enough for the device and spaced out well. Finally, the device supports passthrough vaping, so you can still hit it when it’s plugged in for a charge.
