The Artery Lady Q: A discreet and elegantly designed starter kit aimed at the female vaper. But how did I get on with it?
Today we are looking at the Artery Lady Q. It looks like an item you would find in a makeup bag or on the dressing table. It’s aimed towards the female vapers out there, but obviously, it can be used by anyone!
As always my opinions are honest and my own.

Build Quality & Design
We’ll start from the top and make our way down the device.
So, the tank on the Artery Lady Q has a 1.5ml e-liquid capacity and runs on 0.7Ω coils that are suggested to be run between 15w and 25w. The coils look to be the same as the Nautilus coils, but without the gauze at the top of the coil. The wattage on this device isn’t adjustable, so you don’t have to worry about keeping within the wattage parameters.
It has a delrin drip tip which is a conical shape and fits nicely in the mouth. It’s not too big or small. This unscrews to reveal the filling holes which are of a good size and allow easy filling of the tank.
At the base of the tank, we have the adjustable airflow which is a silver square that rotates and locks into place. It has four different options, ranging from a restricted mouth to lung hit, up to a semi restricted straight to lung hit when it is fully open.
At the very base of the tank, we have a gold platform which it sits on with the Artery logo. In each corner of the base is a magnet which also acts as the contacts to the battery. It doesn’t matter what orientation you have these in, it works perfectly fine whatever way you attach it to the battery.
The battery has an 1000mAh capacity and is currently available in three different colours. At the top, we have the gap where the tank hides when not in use. This looks to be fully sealed, just in case there are any excessive leakages, so it won’t leak into the battery itself. When the tank is in the “supressed” mode, it is held into place with magnets.
The externals are plain and simple. It’s glossy, has ‘Artery’ on one side and Lady Q on the other side. As well as a micro USB charge port located near the bottom.
At the base of the Lady Q is the fire button. It is your simple 5 clicks on, 5 clicks off and that is it. It lights up green when fired and flashes when turned on and off.
But I have discovered that rather than being ‘touch sensitive’ as suggested on the website, it is more of a heat sensitive button. So you can put this anywhere on your body and it will fire. But if you put it against something that isn’t hot, for example an e-liquid bottle lid, it won’t fire. It even fires through clothing, which is a bit of a con in my eyes…
How It Feels in the Hand:
The Lady Q fits nicely in the hand, it isn’t heavy or bulky, no sharp edged that dig into in the hand and the button is within easy reach of your fingers.
How Does the Lady Q Perform?
Flavour & Cloud Production
For a starter kit, the flavour isn’t too bad! It’s pretty consistent throughout the different airflow options, but obviously you get a more restricted airflow as you go down through the different size holes.
I personally prefer using the fully open option as this allows the user to have a restricted straight to lung vape and produces some acceptable clouds.
The medium two allows the user to MTL or DTL vape, depending on what is convenient for you. The flavour and clouds are pretty average for the airflow setting.
The lowest setting I would suggest that it is mouth to lung only. If you attempted to vape this straight to lung, you would have to slipstream it which lessens the flavour.
As said above, the battery size is 1000mAh. So, before I start, I would like to state that I am not the heaviest of vapers during my working hours. So as a rule of thumb, a 2500mAh single 18650 device working at 50w on a 0.4Ω coil generally lasts me from 8am until I go to bed.
With this device, it has lasted me anywhere between three quarters of a day, to a day and a bit with a full charge. So, on average, I would say that this lasts me roughly the same time as a single 18650 device would.
If you’re a heavier vaper, I would highly recommend taking a suitable USB charger out with you.
What I Like
- It looks good
- Flavour & Clouds
- It’s discreet
- Quick charge time
What I Dislike
- Heat sensitive button.
- Slight weepage when the tank is stored upside down.
Final Review Verdict
Overall, the Artery lady Q is a nice little device. Aesthetically, it’s not one for me, as it’s a bit feminine, but the design is very good. It’s discreet, it’s elegant and it produces acceptable flavour and clouds for a starter kit. The battery life is alright, but could be increased for the heavier vapers amongst us.
