Our Uwell Caliburn A2 review is here to guide you through this compact and straightforward vape starter kit. Following the success of the original Caliburn vape, titans of the industry Uwell have expanded their line by doing what they do best— stripping vaping back to its basics. The A2 is the newest addition to the esteemed Caliburn series, and we’re curious to find out if it lives up to the hype and success of its predecessors.

Compact, simple and easy to use, the Caliburn A2 certainly looks the part for those wanting a stylish beginner-friendly vape kit. Focusing solely on delivering a premium MTL experience, this device is gaining traction among ex-smokers and those trying to kick the habit. By providing an in-depth look at the Caliburn A2, outlining its key features, design, and performance, we hope to provide you with the insight you need to decide if this is the right e-cigarette to help you along your quit smoking journey.

Caliburn A2 Features

Caliburn A2 Features

Pod kits are a convenient alternative to conventional vape kits, so the A2 is built with beginner users in mind. Keeping things as simple as possible, this kit uses replaceable pods that require no setup, just click it in, fill with your favourite eliquid, and you’re good to go. 

Just like the original Calburn, each pod comes pre-fitted with 0.9Ohm coil, so you’ll never have to worry about complicated coil changes. This resistance is ideal for MTL vape fans seeking a robust throat hit and this kit comes with 2 Caliburn pods to get you started. Refilling the A2 is fairly straightforward as the top-fill design means you can top up effortlessly without removing the pod from the body and each pod snaps securely into place with a magnetic connection.

● Magnetic pod connection
● 2ml pod capacity
● 520 mAh battery with USB-C charging (sold separately)
● 2 x Caliburn pods included
● Beginner-friendly

The battery powering the Caliburn A2 has a modest capacity of just 520mah, which isn't much, but paired with the high resistance pods and maximum wattage of 15 Watts, that 520mah will comfortably last you a whole day of vaping. You won’t have to wait around for your vape to charge either as this kit supports super fast charging, reaching full battery life in just under an hour.

Moving on from the inner workings, let’s find out how the A2 looks.

Caliburn A2 Ergonomics and Design

This pen-style vape is discreet, small, and eye-catching, making it ideal for beginners or as a portable companion to add to a larger collection. The A2 can fit comfortably in your pocket or handbag owing to its narrow and sleek design, making it an excellent device for travelling and on the move. You won't have to fiddle with any confusing screens or fancy settings; simply fill up with your eliquid and go!

● Compact and portable
● Pen-style vape
● One-button design
● Frontal viewing window
● Aluminium alloy construction
Great for those wanting to stay away from large devices, the A2 is surprisingly lightweight and feels comfortable in your hand. Despite its modest weight and small footprint, it's still pretty durable thanks to its sturdy and stylish aluminium alloy exterior. The design boasts a couple of improvements over its predecessor, namely the addition of a viewing window and a fire button that sits flush to the device to prevent accidental misfiring.

Now that we’ve covered how it looks, let’s find out how it performs.

Caliburn A2 Performance

Caliburn A2 Performance

Perfect for those who favour a tight MTL experience, the A2 provides a more restrictive vape than the original Caliburn thanks to the pre-set optimised airflow. Despite the maximum output being limited to 15W, it still generates moderate clouds and flavoursome throat hits. As Caliburn pods are pretty versatile, you can use them with any of our 50/50, high PG, or nic salt e liquid options depending on your preference.

● MTL vaping
● 15W fixed output
● Button and auto-draw firing
● Perfect for ex-smokers

As well as sporting a firing button, the Caliburn A2 also supports auto-draw activation, so you can customise how you vape to suit your preferences. The auto-draw is remarkably responsive and even the lightest of drags will produce satisfying throat hits and intense flavour, further mimicking the sensation of smoking a regular cigarette. With no additional settings or adjustments to worry about, beginners will appreciate the simplicity of this device for an effortless all-day vape.

Now that you know how the A2 performs, it’s time to move on to our verdict.

A2 Caliburn Verdict

While the A2 isn’t worlds apart from the original Caliburn, it didn’t disappoint. The slight improvements to the performance and design are impressive enough to warrant the Caliburn A2 as one of the best vape starter kits out there. If the original was a little too airy for your liking, then the restricted MTL draw of the A2 is probably more up your street.

Ultimately, it's an excellent kit for people just transitioning from smoking or anyone looking for a stripped-back vape kit since it doesn't require continual modifications and tweaking like many other devices. It looks great in your hand, produces amazing flavour, and the pods last a long time, so it's a solid option for those looking for a budget-friendly all-day device.
