Here’s the thing with the Uwell Caliburn X. It vapes good, like really very good. My somewhat personal nitpick of the airflow should not keep a cigarette smoker from this pod. If you wanted something that vapes EXACTLY like a Caliburn but with a bigger battery and a bigger pod? This is not quite that and I’m sorry. The Caliburn IMO has a unique smooth draw that this does not have. This almost feels hollow to me sometimes.
Am I overreacting about the juice-level thing? It bums me out filling my pod when it’s only halfway empty.
The Stubby AIO by Suicide Mods & Orca Vape just kinda rules, assuming ( unlike me ) you can put the Stubby RBA back together CORRECTLY. It’s a no-brainer, but the airflow AND fill port both need to be facing forward. Otherwise, this thing is a beast.
I’m REALLY hoping the big-boro trend takes off and we can get some bangin RBAs for it. It’s a single 18650 but it’s smaller than a Pulse AIO.
Lots to love about the PSYCH RBA for Boro tanks. The construction is really nice, everything fits together well. I love the attention to detail that makes this such an enjoyable vape. I’m sure I’ll try the MTL at some point soon, but I just can’t pull myself away from this restricted lung.
I love that it’s universally compatible with all standard BORO tanks. That goes a long way with me.
I may sound like a broken record, but please UWELL, bring back the auto switch for the WHIRL pods. The Whirl S2 is an otherwise tasty crackly pod, maybe it will roll away from you, but if this had an auto draw I would love it on a whole other level. Unfortunately, it just ends up being a little bit better than fine.
Some minor gipes on an otherwise stellar “big pod”? The Nevoks Feelin X is almost incredible. This pod does almost everything though. MTL is possible but not ideal. Restricted lung is bangin, and full Direct lung is even banging-ger. It’s smooth and that rubber tip makes it damn near hands free.
Ever since the very first Atlantis sub tank ever released, I’ve always enjoyed a reliable workhorse of a sub tank. This Horizon Aquila sub-tank is really hitting with me. Top-notch flavor, crispy dense vapor. The coil heads do not need a whole mess of wattage to really perform.
Lots to love about the Aquila IMO. I know a stand-alone sub tank in 2022 is a hard sell, but if you don’t have a sub tank, the Aquila would be worth a look.
I feel like the LUXE X is a rough offering from Vaporesso. They nailed a lot, and also missed a lot. These coil heads just… need to be better. A 0.8 that doesn’t to MTL and a 0.4 that does a VERY VERY restricted direct lung just doesn’t hit with me.
At the end of the day it vapes fine, the flavor is good and Vaporesso is on the right track with a few things. The Luxe X just needs better coil heads and I honestly think it would slap.
The Vaporesso OSMALL 2 pod isn’t going to be a long-lasting, durable “buy it for life” type of pod. But it is lightweight, hands-free, and vapes mostly good. I’ve never really said this about a pod before, but I think this OSMALL2 would actually benefit from a thinner 50/50 PG/VG or salt-nic liquid.
It’s just crazy middle of the road, but obviously better than smoking a combustible cigarette. There are certainly much MUCH worse pod choices you could make.
