Unboxing the UWell Caliburn G2

Summary

  • The Caliburn G2 kit contains the main pod system, two types of Caliburn G2 pods (0.8ohm and 1.2ohm), a Type-C charging cable, and a user manual.
  • Notable features of the Caliburn G2 include two e-liquid windows, a progressive airflow adjustment wheel, and haptic feedback.
  • Haptic feedback on the G2 vibrates to notify users of events like pod insertion, low battery, and potential short-circuits.
  • While the G2 possesses a larger battery than the G, many users don't report significant differences in battery life.

Unboxing the UWell Caliburn G2

UWell’s Caliburn series of pod systems has been a big hit (pun intended) with vaping enthusiasts for years, but how does their newest offering—the Caliburn G2—compare with previous devices? Moreover, how does it stack up against similar products by competing brands? And finally, should you buy one?

Below, we’ll tell you what we learned while unboxing the UWell Caliburn G2 and give you our thoughts about how it fits into the current landscape of vaping products. Then you’ll be able to draw your own conclusions (pun intended again, obviously) about whether this device is right for you.

What’s In the Kit?

The UWell Caliburn G2 comes with:

  • 1 x Caliburn G2 Pod System
  • 1 x 0.8ohm Caliburn G2 Pod
  • 1 x 1.2ohm Caliburn G2 Pod
  • 1 x Type-C Charging Cable
  • 1 x User Manual

In terms of the packaging and presentation, you’re getting exactly what you’d expect from UWell—everything about the box suggests that this is a premium product, from the finish to the weight of the materials. UWell seems well aware (UWell aware? Ha!) that trying to replace the perennially-popular Caliburn G is going to be no easy feat, so they’re really paying attention to even the smallest details here.

First Impressions of the UWell Caliburn G2

Fortunately, UWell’s conscientiousness doesn’t stop with the packaging for this device. One of the first things you’ll notice about the Caliburn G2 is that it sports a few features not found on its older sibling. For example, the G2 has two e-liquid windows—one on each side of the device, as opposed to the single window on the Caliburn G. You might also notice the progressive airflow adjustment wheel on the G2, which is designed to give you even more control over your draw and cloud size.

Other than those details, there’s not much (apart from different colour schemes) to set the G2 apart from the G—not visually, anyway. But the moment you charge the G2 in, you’ll become aware of another new feature: haptic feedback. This is a fun little addition on UWell’s part; the G2 actually vibrates during important moments to make you aware of what’s happening. You’ll feel this for the first time when the device starts charging, but we’ll talk about its other uses when it’s time to discuss the G2’s performance (in the next section).

Using the Caliburn G2

Using the Caliburn G2 makes one thing abundantly clear: this is a product that aims to refine and improve the best aspects of the Caliburn G instead of throwing out the whole playbook for that device and starting fresh. It’s a sequel, not a reboot. If you liked vaping with the Caliburn G, you’re going to love this.

Just don’t expect a brand new experience. Does the progressive airflow adjustment feature function as intended? Absolutely—and we’re certainly not complaining about new ways to tweak the vaping experience. So many companies release new products just to say they have something new, so it’s really nice to see that UWell seems to be driven by an actual desire to innovate instead.

But arguably, the most exciting thing about the G2 is the haptic feedback feature. And before we go into any more detail about that, here’s a little food for thought for anyone who doesn’t think making a product vibrate is a big deal: does anyone remember the difference between the controllers for the PS2 and the PS3? No? What about the difference between a wand massager and a banana?

Yeah, you get it now. Haptic feedback is a big deal.

Haptic feedback on the G2 ends up being a clever way to tell you when something’s happening to the device that might require your attention. The G2 will vibrate whenever:

  • You correctly insert a pod
  • The battery is nearly depleted
  • You puff for more than 8 seconds
  • You connect the device to the charger
  • The device’s battery becomes fully charged
  • The device is in danger of short-circuiting

From a practical standpoint, that’s really useful—no more worrying about whether your pod is properly installed or whether you connected it to power properly. And a device that warns you when you’re in danger of damaging it is a device you can count on to last longer. Just don’t try to massage yourself with it.

Caliburn G2 Pros

There’s a lot to love about the Caliburn G2. It doesn’t throw the baby out with the bathwater; the sleek design, portability, and ease-of-use have all been retained from the previous device. But the addition of an extra e-liquid window, progressive airflow, and especially haptic feedback make this feel like a meaningful evolution of the Caliburn G instead of a minor update.

Caliburn G2 Cons

It’s not easy to find things to complain about on the Caliburn G2, but in the interests of being thorough, we did our best. The one thing we’ve got to point out is that even though the G2 has a larger battery than the Caliburn G (750 vs. 690 mAh), you probably won’t notice much of a difference in actual battery life. This is curious, since both devices have the same wattage—but more than one user has reported the same thing.

UWell Caliburn G2 Price

Here’s another welcome piece of news: the Caliburn G2 actually costs less than the Caliburn G Starter Kit. Only $5 CAD less, mind you (the G2 costs $44.99 while the G costs $49.99)—but who’s complaining about getting a brand new device with extra features for a lower price than the older version?

Final Thoughts on the UWell Caliburn G2

Cool new features on the same great base, all in a more affordable package? It sounds too good to be true, but it’s not—it’s the UWell Caliburn G2. We emphatically recommend this product for anyone familiar with the Caliburn series, as well as those using competing products like the Juul who want something more exciting and feature-rich.
