Caliburn X FAQs - Frequently Asked Questions about the Caliburn X - 180 Smoke

Caliburn X FAQs – Frequently Asked Questions about the Caliburn X

Dec 14, 2022 | FAQ, Vaping

The Caliburn X is manufactured by UWELL, a globally-renowned vape brand established in 2015. It is one of the more established manufacturers of mods and tanks, and they’ve transitioned well in flow with the market with the Caliburn Series, bringing large-scale tech to small refillable devices, in light of the push on disposables. The brand is synonymous with high-quality, innovative vape products, and the Caliburn X, their latest model in the popular line, is no exception.

We can’t wait for you to try their latest device. From its informative OLED display screen, multipurpose button, and more, there is much to admire in this new release. This model is very much set apart from the rest of the series with the adjustable wattage (thus far all models had had a fixed wattage) and external airflow control (until this point only the G2 pods had had airflow control, and it is internal).  If you are having trouble with a leaking pod, understanding how it works, or how to know if it’s charged, among other common concerns, then this FAQ section is exactly what you need right now.

While the Caliburn X can easily qualify as the best Caliburn pod system, due to its state-of-the-art OLED screen (which even features a puff counter, a useful addition we hadn’t seen in a while), a wide variety of unique colours, and more, any pod device can have its issues, and users are bound to have questions about the product. This is why we have created this helpful FAQs section!

Please note that Caliburn X pod kit issues are rare due to the device’s superior design and quality. However, you can always contact UWELL or 180 Smoke’s support if you have any additional questions.

How to set up the Caliburn X?

When you buy the Caliburn X, it will seem like it’s ready for you to start vaping, but not quite. You need to prepare the device for use for it to work. You can follow these easy steps:

  1. Begin by removing the drip tip from the refillable pod to reveal the e-liquid filling port, press the tip of the bottle into the port to release the spring-loaded lock, and fill the pod.
  2. Cap the refillable pod and let the pod sit for 10 minutes.
  3. Remove the insulation sticker at the bottom of the pod and insert the pod back into the device. 
  4. Press the firing button 5 times rapidly to turn the device on and adjust the wattage within the range of the pod before using the device.

How does the Caliburn X button work?

  • Press the fire button five times to power the device on/off.
  • Press it two times to lock the device, and twice again to unlock it. Even when the device is locked, you can still use auto-draw. 
  • To adjust wattage, press the button three times, the wattage icon will flash. Proceed by pressing again to set the desired wattage. Wait two seconds, and the wattage will set.  


Can I reset my puff count with the Caliburn X?

Yes. You can press the fire button four times to reset the puff count. The Caliburn X is one of the last few devices that have this feature, which used to be a lot more common in the past. Having this option comes with many benefits: it’s a good way to know how long your coils are lasting and how quickly you are going through the e-liquid. It is especially useful if you are trying to be mindful of your vaping habits. If you want to know how much you are using your vape and how many puffs you are taking per day, week, etc., this handy tool has all the information you need. 

How does the Caliburn X screen work?

Turning on the device means the OLED screen is also powered. It turns off automatically after several seconds to conserve power and will only turn back on when you press the fire button. To turn the screen off permanently, you must turn off the device by pressing the fire button five times.

When on, the display shows vital device and vaping information like the current battery level, puff counter, device wattage, and coil resistance, which can all be accessed by pressing the fire button a specific number of times. For instance, pressing the fire button thrice will cause the current wattage to start blinking on the screen. You can then adjust wattage (from 5-20W output range) by clicking it further.

How do I fill the pod?

  • Insert the pod cartridge into the device and remove the drip tip.
  • Press the bottle tip into the fill port in order to release the spring loaded fill lock, and fill with e-liquid.
  • Replace the drip tip, and if new/dry, let the pod sit for approximately 10 minutes prior to use.

What type of e-liquid can I use in my Caliburn X?

Mouth-to-lung (MTL) vapes like the Caliburn X work best with e-liquid Propylene Glycol (PG) content equal to/or more than 50%, which includes most nicotine salts and some freebase e-liquids. High VG e-liquids used in high power devices are thicker and wick slower, risking dry hits with smaller atomizers.

How does the airflow adjustment work?

The Caliburn X has a superior adjustable airflow control feature (airflow control valve) that slides to offer the desired airflow.


How do I turn on/off the device?

The Caliburn X is turned on/off by pressing the fire button five times. However, you have to do this fast (within two seconds).

What do I do if my vape is leaking or spitting back?

Old or damaged atomizers may leak resulting in spit back or e-liquid escaping through the airflow port, but heavy use and environmental factors can also lead to condensation collecting in the pod housing with similar result.

If your device is leaking or you are experiencing spit back, first, remove the pod and dry the housing with a tissue or q-tip, being careful not to leave any residue behind, then dry the exterior of the pod.

If you are experiencing spit back or the pod appears to be leaking from the airflow intake, let the pod sit vertically on a tissue for 5 – 10 minutes to allow excess e-liquid to escape from the atomizer – or, if you’re less patient, hold the base of the pod with a tissue (to catch e-liquid escaping) and blow gently through the mouthpiece. If e-liquid still continues to escape, the atomizer is damaged and the pod should be replaced.

How often should I change the pod in my Caliburn X?

The CRC version Caliburn X pods have a built in coil but are also made with sturdy PCTG material which is highly durable, so you usually don’t need to replace the pod until the atomizer becomes overused and tastes burnt out, or becomes leaky. Length of use depends greatly on your personal vaping habits, but customers regularly report using them between 1 – 2 weeks.

Avoid operating the device outside the recommended wattage range(s) and ensure there is always e-liquid in the pod prior to use, in order to extend the lifespan as much as possible.

How big is the Caliburn X?

The Caliburn X measures 107.4 mm by 27.5 mm by 15.6 mm.

How do I charge my Caliburn X?

The device comes equipped with a type C port (5V/2A fast charging). The package also has a type C charging cable. Simply plug in the device to start charging. 

How do I know when my Caliburn X is charged?

The battery icon is visible on the OLED display and it will start to reflect the change in the charge levels. The display will shut down when the device is fully charged. This happens whether the device is on or off. 

How long will the battery last on the Caliburn X?

The device has a 850-mAh built-in battery capable of lasting over a day. However, the exact hours will depend on factors like how long/frequently the device is used and the set wattage. Generally, a high wattage will drain the battery faster, although it is also one way to have more vapour, in case that is something you like as part of your vaping experience.  

What is different about the Caliburn X?

  • When compared to preceding Caliburn pod systems, it is accurate to state that the Caliburn X is the most advanced: 
    • With the OLED display that shows important information, while the previous models had LED indicator lights or animated light displays.
    • The Caliburn X’s convenient airflow adjustment mechanism also stands out compared to the simple side hole of previous models. 
    • The battery capacity and e-liquid capacity (850 mAH and 3ml, respectively) are also higher. 
    • The Caliburn X has adjustable wattage (5 to 20w) when most pods have fixed wattage. 
    • The pod system also has unique colours.

What does the Caliburn X pod system come with?

When you buy the Caliburn X, you’ll get the vape device, a charging cable, two refillable pods (with built-in coils: 1 x 0.8Ω + 1 x 1.2Ω), and a user manual.
