Uwell - Caliburn Pod System
The Uwell Caliburn Pod System, released in early 2019 has quickly become one of the most loved, if not the most loved, pod systems released recently, quite possibly one of the most loved pod systems released, ever.
It is described as the “Ferrari of Pod Systems” by Reddit user VapeIrish. VapeIrish’s review of this system can be found here.
The Uwell Caliburn is refillable pod system pushing out a constant 11 watts, with a 2mL e-liquid capacity. Pods are easy to refill with top fill holes which also help by not allowing your e-liquid to easily leak out. Typically, high level nicotine salt juice is used in systems like this, however any e-liquid will work. Pod life is said to be longer than average, when compared to other devices in the same class.
The flavor will surprise you. The Uwell Caliburn has more flavor than any type of pod device we have tried. Amazing since it's such a small, low powered device.
The Uwell Caliburn is a MTL (Mouth To Lung) style vape, meaning the draw is similar to cigarette as opposed to a DL (Direct Lung) type draw, typically seen with higher wattage, sub-ohm devices.
With a small form factor, the 520 mAh battery provides enough battery life for your average vaper to vape throughout the day. Chain vapers may run into issues with the battery dying quicker than they’d like, however, this can be said for any type of device. The weight of this device is only 30 grams, or roughly one ounce. If you were to carry 16 Caliburns in your hand, all of them together would weigh a little over a pound. They’re light.
It turns on and off with 5 clicks on the button. Lastly, the Caliburn can be vaped using push button OR draw activated. Your choice!
Replacement pods can be purchased here.

Love the Caliburn
I had never vaped before, but I found this very easy to use and I love the flavors at VIAB. I had one problem with my first Caliburn when it quit recharging. I wrote Uwell and they want all kinds of pictures and information, so don't throw anything away, including the sleeve (which is what I did). I believe the problem was when I charged it in my car. That is when it quit recharging. Think it may have shorted it out somehow. I ordered another one and it works great! VIAB has the best price on it too. I called around my local stores in Bellingham, WA and they want $39.99. Have had no leakage problems either.
So this is my second Caliburn
The first one had ordered from uwell directly had malfunctioned so I ordered a second from vapor in a bottle while I awaited the warrenty approval and replacement device. Uwell had already sent a shipping label to me for replacement. When the device was not malfunctioning I very much enjoyed it so I had ordered a second. The draw is like no other pod system I have tried and top notch. The main issue with the device is that the pods do leak and it is not uncommon to get spittback or vapor in your mouth or on your tounge. With so many better pod designs out in 2019 it is certainly a step in the wrong direction as far as leak prevention goes. I must say that the amount that does leak is minimal and 100% tolerable but that is the major con with this device. I love the constant 13 watt output from the caliburn and it produces one of the best flavor profiles for my juice/salts available from a pod device in the less than $50 price range. I find myself picking up my smok Nord just as often; Although my caliburn is my favorite and go to pod device for leaving the house with, along with my justfrog minifit as a backup for when my uwell caliburn's battery inevitably dies.
Amazing pod system!
Pretty amazing device, Im an avid RTA and RDA user and I got this device for my grandmother to use and she absolutely loves it. Super easy to use and the pods prime and fire super fast.
Best pod system
I have tried a ton of pod systems from the suorin air, Orion, to the Innokin EQ and almost everything in between. The Caliburn is hands down the best available pod system. The flavor is amazing and the pods last 10-12 refills. I’ve never had issue with a dry hit either. Anyone considering getting into pod systems or looking for a new one, this the one to buy! Vapor in a bottle has the best price on these as well and can’t thank them enough for that.
