The Caliburn Pod System by Uwell is a brand-new pod system by the company famous mostly for their larger vape devices, i.e. tanks and box mods. The Cailburn is designed to be ultra-portable and is shaped more or less like a Juul or similar cig-a-likes, albeit with a great deal more power and versatility. As a compact pod system device, the Caliburn features a two-piece setup with a 520mAh battery and separate, disposable pods with integrated coils. As always, let’s check out the specs on this device before throwing it over to the reviewers for their thoughts.

Another pretty straightforward consensus on this one. From MikeVapes swearing off other pod systems to Ryan Hall admitting he likes this one despite his hardline anti-pod system stance, it’s obvious we’ve got a winner here. In fact, this system was so well-liked, each reviewer had to dig deep and nit-pick in order to find anything to add to their “cons” list. In the interest of a balanced and fair review, however, let’s begin with these minor issues.
There was really no consensus on the con lists of each reviewer since, again, each reviewer was essentially digging into their own personal cache of pet peeves. For Mike, it was the top-fill system, for Suck My Mod it was mostly the looser airflow, and for Ryan Hall it was the size. In each case, however, the reviewer noted that their particular grievance was largely a matter of personal preference and, either way, not a huge deal. So let’s move on to what they liked.
The first thing that came out in each review was the incredible hit provided by this device. Each reviewer mentioned how tight and powerful the draw felt, with an almost instantaneous ramp-up through its draw-activation system. On a related note, the reviewers liked how you can change between draw- and button-activation at will. The coils and pods were unanimously praised for their flavor production, longevity, and MTL hit, while the battery was universally well-received due to its large size.
At the end of the day, each reviewer had to really work to find anything wrong with the Uwell Caliburn. From start to finish, this is the pod system for people in the market for a pod system. If you’re looking for a huge, powerful, cloud-chucking device, this ain’t it. But when you need something for stealth vaping or you’re looking to transition from the Juul to a more versatile device, you won’t find a better option than this guy.
