 [TEST] Caliburn pod system by Uwell, tiny but effective


The Caliburn looks as unassuming as any pod system, but things are not as they seem… Similar to other pod systems such as the Lynq, the Infinix, or the Juul, it stands out thanks to a powerful 520 mAh. This value is a whopping 200 to 300 mAh higher than direct competitors. As a result, the Caliburn provides stellar autonomy, giving you enough juice to clear 2 full pods before needing a recharge.

caliburnThe pod coils measure at 1.4 ohm for a total of 2 ml in capacity, the standard value imposed by TPD regulations. You can refill (the pods are not single use) directly through the mouth piece and – thankfully – UWELL placed two vents to facilitate the process, one on either side of the chimney. This makes re-filling quick and easy. You can squeeze e-juice into one vent and then the other, no need to wait for the liquid to balance out. Cherry on top, the pod connects to the battery unit via magnetic connectors.

There is however a significant drawback. The angle of the mouth-piece design means it can’t be held comfortably between the lips: the weight of the pod causes it to slip out. For many, this will not be an issue, but one of the main features of pods is how closely the vaping experience resembles smoking.


Impressive vapour output

Battery autonomy is impressive, and vapour production follows suit. With only 11 watts, the Caliburn can fill a room with vapour in record timing given its size. The high level of airflow is most likely the reason for this. The vapour output is non-adjustable and hits the sweet spot between MTL and DTL, which is ideal for the voltage available.


It is comfortable in hand, with the Caliburn casing made entirely of aluminium. There is only one firing button, which is also used to switch the device on and off. Despite this, the UWELL also fires up simply by inhaling. So you don’t need to press the button to activate the e-cig unless that is your preference. If you need to press a button to stay away from cigarettes, so be it, fire away!

At the affordable price of 25€, the Caliburn represents a very good deal given the excellent features.
