Uwell Caliburn A3 Review – Vaping with Sass
Welcome to the world of vaping, where the Uwell Caliburn A3 is stealing the spotlight! This newbie in the Caliburn A family is making waves, and we're here to spill the tea.
What's in the Caliburn A Series?
Picture this: a lineup that includes the OG Caliburn, Koko, AK2, A2, A2S, and now, the A3. It's like a vape family reunion!
Meet the Caliburn A3: What to Expect?
Think of the A3 as the cool older sibling with upgraded pods, faster charging, and a nifty button lock feature. It's like the A2 got a makeover.
Getting Hands-On: Design and Build Quality
Hold up! We've got the Blue and Silver variants. They're sleek, and the clear window in the box? A nice touch. But, heads up, no USB cable is included. Bring your party favors.
Size Matters… Or Does It?
The A3 is the tallest Caliburn yet, but don't let that fool you. The 520mAh battery isn't bulking up. It's the same as before—no battery growth spurt here.
A Window with a View… Kind of
There's an E-liquid viewing window, but it's playing hard to get. Only cut out on one side; it's like trying to spot a ninja in the dark. Uwell, can we get a window on the flip side for some backlight drama?
Pop, Lock, and Vape
A circle of joy awaits with the 1cm diameter fire button. It's smooth, no rattles, and won't ruin your vibe accidentally. The "Caliburn" branding at the base? A classy touch.
Mood Lighting at the Base
The LED indicator at the bottom is sly. It pulsates when charging and stays chill while vaping. But good luck seeing it during your vape session. It's like playing hide-and-seek with your battery level.
Pod Squad: Refilling Drama
Here's where the plot thickens. Refilling? A bit of a struggle. "Pop off" the mouthpiece? Sounds simple. Nope! It's like trying to pop a balloon with gloves on. Unofficial advice: tilt and bite, but Uwell, we need a more accessible script for this scene.
U3 Pod Performance: The Flavour Fiesta
The A3's flavour game is strong—9.5/10 strong. It's a flavour fiesta, and the 1-ohm pod is stealing the show. An excellent throat hit, bursting flavour, but the 0.5 missing mark? A slightly dry vape on repeat. Chain-vaping? Brace yourself for the Sahara in your mouth.
Airflow: Not Too Tight, Not Too Loose
It's like Goldilocks' perfect vape—just right. The MTL airflow isn't super tight, but it is not RDL loose, either. On a scale from 0 to breathing air, it's a 2.5-3. No adjustments, though. Take it or leave it.
Battery Life: Survival of the Vapest
Survival time varies from 3.5 to 4.5 hours for this heavy vaper. Charging time? Double the hype at 30 minutes. Still quick, just not "Uwell's 15 minutes to stardom" quick.
Pros and Cons: The Vape Drama
Pros: Flavour explosion, simplicity on point, snappy auto draw, and quick-ish charging. Bonus: fire button lock for those accidental pocket vapes.
Cons: Charging time drama, low battery capacity blues, dark e-liquid window mystery, LED hide-and-seek, annoying refilling, not a pod compatibility party, and a tiny fill port fuss.
Final Act: The Verdict and Conclusion:
Despite the flaws stealing the limelight, the A3 is a star. The flavour's the hero; simplicity's the sidekick, but the drama with charging and refilling? Uwell, sort the script, and this could be a blockbuster!
