The Uwell Caliburn Koko Prime pod kit is the latest iteration of the acclaimed Caliburn series. Equipped with the same compact form factor as the original Caliburn Koko, the Koko Prime is powered by a 690mAh built-in battery with a 15W max output. As well as a removable coil method, users can also configure their vape by flipping which way the pod is inserted for a customisable experience. Compatible with the Caliburn G pods and coils, the Koko Prime is ideal for vapers of all experience levels, especially those switching from smoking.
Constructed from durable PCTG materials, users also have the option of interchanging the external decorative panels for a personalised experience. The Koko Prime device is fired through an inhale activation for a simple operation. The long-lasting 690mAh battery strikes the ideal balance between power and output. The innovative dual airflow system means users can alternate their inhale by rotating the pod’s insertion, whether they prefer a loose inhale or a tighter, more restricted draw.
The Caliburn G pods feature a 2ml e-liquid capacity and are refilled via the silicone stopper top fill which is located by removing the mouthpiece. A plug and play design makes replacing and installing coils a hassle-free process. Compatible with the Caliburn G coils, available in a 0.8 Ohm mesh coil or as a 1.0 Ohm standard coil, we recommend pairing the Caliburn Koko Prime with PG e-liquids of 50% or higher for optimum results.

I was looking for a change from the Mi-pod, a device I've adored for the past two years. I heard good things about the Caliburn Koko prime and thought I'd give it a shot, especially at its price point.
It's a really pretty device, incredibly sturdy especially where you connect the lanyard. I've had problems in the past with the Mi-pod lanyard connector breaking since it's essentially just plastic, in fact it's happened with almost all my Mi-pods. This one seems to be solid metal, so there's no chance of that happening. Even the lanyard itself has several clasps that allow you to easily take it off without pulling it over your head.
Now more importantly, the vaping experience itself. Flavour reproduction is great, on par with the Mi-pod in my opinion. the flippable pod is a nice, innovative touch, allowing you to change up the vaping style.
I have two issues with it. One, it doesn't have passthrough charging, allowing you to vape whilst charging, which would be fine if it wasn't for issue two, the battery life. It's great for a casual vaper but if you're like me, it wont last a full day. I have to put it aside when I need to charge it and find a different vape to use in the meantime. Fortunately as it uses USB-C, it charges pretty quickly.

I haven't used any of the other Caliburn devices but after ending up back on tobacco during the 2020 stay-at-home times I wanted to get off again and was looking for something small and low-fuss to help. Can't be bothered with rebuilding any more just want small and no-fuss MtL these days. This seemed to tick all the boxes and I'm so glad I went for it.
This is like the noisy cricket from the original Men in Black movie - tiny but a BEAST, especially with the 0.8 mesh coils. It's got it all - replaceable pods to switch up flavours throughout the day, replaceable coils to minimise pod wastage (always felt guilty throwing away those disposable pods), refillable, small (sometimes I lose it in my pocket it's so small), light, decent battery, no leaks. It lasts really well considering its size - when it was new it lasted all day even with heavy use. Even though it doesn't now it charges quickly between my nic cravings so I don't even notice it.
Honestly probably the best vape I've ever had and I've had a lot over the years. It even looks quite jazzy and gets a lot of curiosity since people can't believe it's a vape it's so small! Only negative I would say is that the coils are a little pricey and sometimes don't last all that long (probably my juice though) so might add to your costs a little.

Great little kit getting use to it tho as I’m use to the caliburn g but yes it’s great
By James from South Wales
I was looking for a no fuss vaping kit to kill a renewed urge to smoke ciggies again. I chose the Koko prime based off good reports I'd heard about the standard Caliburn. I wanted something that was easy to use (no buttons and screens) and a small, easily pocketed profile with inhale activation. The Koko has hit all these marks for me. One of the things I worried about was leakage and so far I've not had any leaks at all (apart from one time I accidently filled it via the draw hole - doh!) even when carrying it loose in my pocket. The pods are easy to fill and the simple method of reversing the pod to create a tighter draw is great. The only thing I don't like is it can be quite tough to get the mouthpiece off sometimes in order to fill it. you have to use a liberal application of force and it feels like I might break the plastic, although I've not done so yet. Other than that it's been a great vape. I use nic salt in mine and get strong flavour. It's been so good I had to buy a second kit for my wife to stop her stealing mine!

I have had every variation of the Caliburn series, not because they are unreliable and need replacing, but because I am so eager to try their latest creations. Every single one of their products has been sublime. The pods work easily, there are no leaks, and the flavour is fantastic. I used to Sub-oHm VGOD Cubano on a Goon RDA and believe me when I say the flavour is as good on these coils. I get approximately 4-6 bottles of Cubano Nic Salt to each coil which I think is pretty impressive when you consider the price of a coil. The battery easily lasts all day and it's light and efficient.
Well done Uwell you've smashed it again!
I brought this after using the koko original and loved it then saw this was being released and couldn’t wait to see how it performed and I’m blown away how good it is I love the fact that the coils are replaceable and not had any issues, the battery lasts pretty much the whole day with frequent use and Charges fairly fast what more could you want

This device is compact, decent battery and the pods provide a good vape
By Connor from Worthing
Specs wise this is a carbon copy of the caliburn g. I prefer this over that though due to the shape. Uses exactly the same pods and coils which are great and best flavour you can get from a pod system. I have gone back to preferring the original koko though with all that being said. I just like the pods and the mouth piece better and it’s slightly easier to fill

I have a number of koko's and am very happy with them unable to think of any way they could be bettered but this new koko prime has some really good improvements in my opinion.
Firstly must be the replaceable coils of .8 and 1ohm both of which perform faultlessly and you can even change them when a pod is full of liquid! How good is that?
Next there is the quick change air flow,simple but very effective. The type C charge port might not seem like much to get excited about but when you have arthritic hands it makes connection much easier, add to that the super fast charge time and Uwell have produced another winner.
