The Caliburn G2 is one of the more expensive vape pods on the market, typically costing upwards of £20. It comes with a spare coil and a pod cartridge, so you will get a few extras for your money.
However, compared to similar vape pods like the IORE Lite which costs under £10, the Caliburn is one of the pricier pods on the market.
The Caliburn G2 has a low maintenance cost. It comes with one spare coil out of the box and you can pick up a 4 pack of Caliburn G2 vape coils for just £9.99, with each coil typically lasting around a week. You can also buy a 2 pack of extra pods for just £7.99.
Battery Life & Battery Type
The internal battery in the Caliburn G2 has a surprisingly good battery life, with a full charge lasting up to one day depending on usage. If you use the device as an MTL (mouth-to-lung) with shorter draws, it will last much longer than when used as a DTL (direct-to-lung) with longer draws.
The device is charged by a USB Type-C cable and will charge from empty to full in around 45 minutes thanks to its fast charging capabilities.
Coils / Resistance
The Caliburn G2 vape pod fits both sub ohm coils and higher resistance coils. This means you can switch between MTL and sub ohm DTL vaping, making it an incredibly versatile vape pod that makes it stand out from the competition.
The coils provide great flavour for a device of this size and both work particularly well with nic salts. You can choose between a sub ohm 0.8 Ω coil and a higher resistance 1.2 Ω coil for the Caliburn G2.
Pod Capacity and Pod Type
Caliburn pods hold 2ml of e-liquid, are refillable and also allow for the coil to be changed. This is unlike several other vape pods, such as the IORE Lite, which require you to replace the entire pod when the coil has reached the end of its life.
Does it leak?
After weeks of testing to write this Caliburn G2 review, we found it is well sealed and it is rare that the device will have any leaks. The only leaking we experienced was a very small amount of e-liquid around the base of the pod cartridge after several hours of use (possibly from the air flow hole), but nothing out of the ordinary.
Material & Build Quality
The Caliburn G2 is made from an aluminium alloy, making it lightweight yet strong and durable. The pods are made from lightweight plastic and are easy to transport. It’s comfortable to hold and is strong enough to be dropped without breaking.
There is no display screen, which helps the device remain lightweight. Instead relying on LED lights and a unique vibration feature to alert the user about low battery, short circuits, no power and other features.
The Caliburn G2 is slim, lightweight and slips easily into your pocket. It’s similarly sized to most other vape pods on the market. The Caliburn comes in a range of stylish, modern colours including Pyrrole Scarlet, Gradient, Shading Gray, Carbon Black.
It also features a transparent window to see how much e-liquid is left in the cartridge, meaning you don’t need to remove the pod to see how much liquid is in the cartridge.
Because its simple, stylish and lightweight, we’re giving it 9/10 for design on our Caliburn G2 review.
The Caliburn G2 Review: Is it worth the price tag?
The Caliburn G2 is a top performer when it comes to performance, design and quality.
Its innovative airflow wheel makes the Caliburn stand out from its competitors, as well as looking good, being small and lightweight and providing great flavour.
The only issue the device has is the higher price. It costs more than double that some of its rivals like the IORE Lite cost, coming in at over £20.
However, the cost is well worth it as it’s packed with features like airflow control and the ability to switch between MTL and DTL vaping.
Overall, we rate the Caliburn G2 vape pod 8.5/10, with its much higher price being its biggest drawback.
