Okay, so let's get this out of the way: it's pronounced "cross". (Hence the puns about "crosses the limits", above.) Yes, I'm also going to say "X-ross" every time I see it, and I wouldn't think anyone a fool for saying "X R O S", either, but it's "cross". I know. But whatever: this is the hottest new reusable bar vape out right now. This thing isn't just a replacement for your old Caliburn or your - ack - Juul, it's better in so many ways. Just like you'd expect from Vaporesso, they've looked at what everyone else is doing, and said, "Yeah, we can do that better."
The Vaporesso XROS pod system, because it'd be awful weird of us to put pictures of anything else here.
It's easy to look at this thing and dismiss it as a Caliburn clone, but it is so much more. (Though honestly, if you've been looking for a replacement for your aging Caliburn, here you go!) Yeah, it's about the same size, and even has the LED and button in about the same place, and yeah has magnetic pods and whatnot, but let's move beyond that.
The Vaporesso XROS pod system's game is tight. It's got the 800 mAh battery you need for all-day vaping, plus 2 ml replaceable and refillable pods, adjustable airflow (which is a game-changer on its own), and modern USB-C charging like a smartphone, all in a slick 304 stainless steel package. On the surface, it's got it all.
Look at how small this thing is!
But let's dig a little deeper, yeah? That's why you read these things, after all. Get beneath the surface, and you'll see the Vaporesso XROS is a device of two minds. Most things that try to do two things aren't great at either one, but the XROS crosses that Rubicon with the gusto appropriate for a Caesar. Do you prefer direct-to-lung vaping like your box mod? It's got you covered, with a pod designed specifically for DTL, a fire button for familiarity, and adjustable airflow you can open all the way to 11. Or maybe you prefer that mouth-to-lung feel of an analog? Fine, it can do that, too, with an MTL pod, draw-activated vaping, and adjustable airflow you can just close down to a pinhole.
All of this comes in a package you can pocket easily. You know that fifth pocket in your jeans, that's not really big enough for your phone, but no one carries change (or pocket watches) so why do they still put them on jeans? It's for the Vaporesso XROS. If your fifth pocket can't take the XROS, buy new pants.
Let's talk about those pods for a second, too. First, they're mesh, and if you've been reading product descriptions on Mister-E-Liquid for a while - and let's be honest: who hasn't been? - then you know we're all about the mesh here. In terms of surface area to heat up, and stability of temperature, there's just no better way to vape. So these awesome mesh coils - again, in MTL and DTL resistances - deliver serious flavor, even on this bar vape. And when refill time comes around, you're going to yelp with delight, probably out loud, in front of people, when you realize it's as simple as flipping off the top mouthpiece and just pouring juice in the hole thus exposed. No silicone plugs to lose, no taking the whole thing apart just to refill it.
Vaporesso wanted to cross boundaries when they designed the XROS pod system. Not just the boundaries of proper English spelling, but also the boundaries that separate us each from the other: mouth-to-lung or direct-to-lung, you've got a friend in the Vaporesso XROS pod system. It's not a Caliburn clone, it's a clutch crossover!
