1. Introduction

The vaping world never stands still, and neither does UWELL. With the introduction of the Uwell CALIBURN G3 pod system, manufacturer UWELL has once again shown its commitment to innovation and quality. Boasting meaningful enhancements such as a stronger anti-leakage design, increased battery life, and a more immersive vaping experience, the G3 outshines the CALIBURN G2.

Uwell CALIBURN G3Let’s dive in and see how the Caliburn G3 compares to the G2 and if it’s a new top pick in the pod system market.

2. Packing List

The UWELL CALIBURN G3 pod system kit includes:

  • Uwell CALIBURN G31 x CALIBURN G3 Device
  • 1 x 0.6-ohm CALIBURN G3 Refillable Pod (Pre-Installed)
  • 1 x 0.9-ohm CALIBURN G3 Refillable Pod (Spare)
  • 1 x Type-C Charging Cable
  • 1 x User Manual

3. Design & Quality

3.1 Body Design

Constructed from a metal alloy, Uwell CALIBURN G3 is a sleek pen-style vape. It’s a bit longer and wider than the G2 and doesn’t have the G2’s vertical grooves. Both systems have an e-juice sight window located near the top of the body, making it easy for users to monitor when refills are needed.

Uwell CALIBURN G3A large trigger button is found about halfway down, although the G3 also has a sensitive auto-draw function. Finally, near the bottom of the front of the vape is a small screen that displays the wattage, battery level, number of puffs, puff duration, and coil resistance. This screen is a new addition, not found on the G2 model.


The Uwell CALIBURN G3 can be purchased in 6 different colorways – silver, gray, black, green, red, and blue.



3.2 Pod Design

There are obvious differences between the CALIBURN G2 and G3 refillable pods. For starters, the G3 pod is noticeably larger with a 2.5 mL e-juice capacity versus the 2 mL capacity with the G2. That’s a 25% increase in e-liquid capacity.

Uwell CALIBURN G3The G2 pod has a black plastic mouthpiece with a clear body. The G3 pod uses a black tinted coloring all over – for a more cohesive look. The G2 pod had a top-fill open system, while the new and improved G3 pod uses the industry-standard silicone refill port along the side of the pod.

3.3 Durability

When looking at the thickness of the metal alloy at the pod opening, the CALIBURN G3 seems to be twice as thick along the back and front when compared to the G2. This makes the G3 far more resistant to unfortunate life events like being dropped or stepped on.

3.4 Does the Uwell CALIBURN G3 leak?

We didn’t experience any leaking around the base or from the mouthpiece when testing the Uwell CALIBURN G3 pod system. Although it was a bit difficult to push the refill port plug back into place after refilling the pod. If you overfill your pod, this might mean a bit of a mess when refilling.

3.5 Ergonomics

The ergonomics of the G3 are a definite improvement over the CALIBURN G2 system. The wider body feels more substantial and more natural in your hand. The activation button is larger, which means more of your thumb pad can rest on it – making for easier triggering of the button. And the texture of the mouthpiece is far more soothing against the skin than the G2 mouthpiece.

4. Battery and Charging

The CALIBURN G3 also has a higher capacity battery than its predecessor model. The G3 has a 900 mAh battery, while the G2 has a 750 mAh battery. This higher capacity offers a longer battery life, so you can expect around 8-10 hours of consistent use from your CALIBURN G3. Ultimately, this means you can spend more time vaping and less time hassling with a charger.


The OLED screen displaces a classic battery indicator with 5 bars – each equates to roughly 20% charge – so you’ll know ahead of time when you need to charge. The USB Type-C charging port is located on the bottom of the device. With a good charger, you can have the G3 back to a full charge in about 30 minutes.

5. Ease of Use

As far as pod systems go, the CALIBURN G3 is about as easy as it gets. In fact, both the G2 and G3 were designed with ease of use in mind. Anyone can pick up this vape, even beginners, and feel comfortable with the device in no time.

Airflow Control

Even the airflow control is user-friendly. Instead of a slider, just remove the pod, flip it around, and insert it back into the G3 body. This action lets you switch between a tighter airflow and a loose and open airflow.

Ignition Mode Switching

You can also change the ignition mode by clicking the activation button. By default, the auto-draw and firing buttons both work. But if you click the fire button twice rapidly, you can lock it so it won’t accidentally be activated. See the manual for more instructions on the other modes.

Adjustable Wattage

If you are interested in adjusting the wattage of the G3, you can do that easily by pressing the fire button three times. The wattage level will start blinking on the screen. To adjust the value, continue clicking the fire button. You can choose a value between 5 and 25W.

Uwell CALIBURN G36. Performance

When comparing the G2 and G3 head-to-head, it’s clear that the G3 offers a superior and more intense flavor experience. Choosing between two mesh coils, 0.6-ohm or 0.9-ohm, gives you more control over your vaping style. The 0.6-ohm coil heats the vapor faster and puts out more vapor but consumes more battery. The 0.9-ohm coil is slower to heat and provides less vapor but is more battery-friendly. With either of these coils, you can use freebase e-liquid and enjoy a satisfying restricted direct-to-lung (RDL) experience. In the future, the G3 pods will also be available with a 1.2-ohm coil for those who prefer to use nic salts and want a more open MTL draw.

7. Price

When looking at pricing, it’s no surprise that the older model G2, which lacks the OLED screen, is cheaper than the CALIBURN G3. You can purchase the G2 for $21.99 from Element Vape, or you can spend just a few more dollars to get the newer G3 pod system that is upgraded in nearly every way. The G3 is available from Element Vape for just $29.99.


Ultimately, the choice is yours, but it seems like a no-brainer that the Uwell CALIBURN G3 is the winning option.

8. Verdict

The CALIBURN G3 Pod System encapsulates the spirit of evolution in the vaping industry. Building on the foundation set by its predecessor, the G2, the G3 pushes boundaries in design, functionality, and overall user experience. Its standout features include the robust anti-leakage design, the more substantial battery capacity, and a screen display previously missing in the G2.


A comparative analysis of the two models highlights that the G3 not only maintains UWELL’s reputation but also elevates it. Whether you’re considering the 25% increased e-liquid capacity, the enhanced durability, or the innovative OLED screen that offers a wealth of information at a glance, it’s evident that the G3 has been designed with the user in mind. Ergonomically, it’s more comfortable, and in terms of performance, the flavor experience and coil options represent a leap forward. The minimal price difference between the G2 and G3 makes the latter an easy choice, considering the array of upgrades it brings to the table.


If you’re considering an upgrade or entering the world of pod systems, the G3 stands out as a top contender – outshining the G2 in nearly every facet.
