A truly remarkable device, the Caliburn G2 is the embodiment of what a true pod system should be.

It checks off all of the important features one looks for when selecting a vape – whether it’s your first time choosing, or your hundredth time.

The first thing I noticed about this kit (something I had yet to come across in vaping) was a vibration alert when you connected or disconnected a charging lead as well as when short-circuit/low voltage protection was activated.

The Caliburn G2 is palm sized and stick shaped, with a fire/on/off button, a USB-C charging port and a window near the top of the device to easily check e-liquid levels.

This unassuming kit is available in a multitude of attractive colours and finishes, suitable for all preferences. The size and weight is similar to other devices in its class and will fit snugly in just about any pocket or bag.

No screen us needed for this device and the fire button is all that is needed to operate it.

The build quality is excellent and it even remained unscathed after colliding unceremoniously with the ground – and yet it still works perfectly.

The Caliburn G2 can be easily filled on the go and a small rubber seal valve eliminates any risk of leakages. The pod slots into the top of the device easily and securely, with no wobble or looseness.

Inside the pod itself, the UN2 mesh coils just pop in and out without the need to screw them in place.

This kit comes with both a 0.8ohm and a 1.2ohm coil and they work great with 50/50 VG/PG e-liquids. Coil longevity is one of the best features of this device, and I managed to get well over 12 days of moderate usage before needing to swap the coil out.

The flavour on this nifty kit is fairly unexpected, especially so with the 0.8 coil. The taste of the e-liquid is conveyed accurately and is strong, with a warm inhale. In terms of inhales, the draw is primarily an MTL (Mouth To Lung) similar to that of smoking a cigarette.

With progressive airflow control on the side of the pod, you are able to adjust it to your preferences and can also get a slightly looser draw, also known as an RDL (restricted direct to lung).

When it comes to charging and battery life, you can expect this 750mAh inbuilt cell to last most of, if not all day. It is quickly charged up via USB-C within about 25mins and battery life is indicated by coloured LED lights, red meaning low, blue being medium and green meaning adequate.

In comparison to disposable setups, running a Caliburn G2 can also be more economical in the long run.

As I briefly mentioned previously, the Caliburn G2 works incredibly well with thinner e-liquids and can handle high strengths of nicotine, delivering both a powerful hit and smooth flavour.

The vapour production on both of the coils included with this kit was modest and allowed for an inconspicuous vaping experience.

Convenience is where this kit thrives, down to its ease of use, low price point and discreet nature, it is perfect for new vapers as well as more experienced vapers that need something reliable, yet understated. 

During my time using this device, I felt that it delivered on all levels. It truly is the perfect pod system and therefore has gained a place in my daily arsenal as my new favourite kit.

For me, there were absolutely no negatives – the battery life was fantastic, it was easy to operate, the flavour was impressive, the coils lasted significantly longer than many other similar setups and it looks smart and stylish. I feel that this device is a true all-rounder that will not disappoint, and is ideal for vapers of all levels.
