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.
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.
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.
Take it for what it’s worth, but the SMOK NORD 5 kinda rules. Kinda rules and hasn’t leaked on me at all. Only cloudy, flavorful performance. You can run these coils and much lower wattages and still get sub-tank like performance from them.
Make this Smok Nord 5 an autodraw and it would probably be a perfect cloud pod.
I’ve been using the Caliburn A2S for days before this video and days after, and I’m actually vaping it right now it’s just really dang heck butt good. I think I said everything I needed to say in the video. The Caliburn A2S is circling flawlessness, but it’s just not quite there.
Here’s the thing about the ALD XPLLO pod. The pods themselves vape REALLY NICE. The “open” airflow setting is probably my favorite. It’s the most Caliburn-like. The “tight” airflow setting is very tight. Too tight for GrimmGreen honestly, but not objectionable.
The ALD XPLLO drama comes from the batteries that are just failing on me. On something so simple like making sure a magnet is glued down properly. This doesn’t give me high hopes for their future products, but I’ll always give them a chance.
