    Hi
    As one of Caliburn users I encountered problem with opening pod cap/drip tip for refiling. On some pods it is very tight, a few times I had to use pliers and spend considerable amount of time still. I even contacted Uwell directly about this and had been told that the problem is known and basically I have to deal with that.
    The problem is hidden in inner top portion of the pod cap. There are 2 notches/teeth pointing down, those are going into juice fill holes and thus holding the cap in place. And in addition, it is very hard to grab the cap to pull it up, I wish it had some kind of bumps for better finger's traction.
    Here is the answer to this, the cheapest and the simplest possible.
    Get some cheap tweezers and bend tips inwards, creating hooks on both sides. Take a new pod and crab the cap from the top so the end points of those hooks will go under the outer cap sides from both sides of the pod, then gently pull up, one side at the time. It took me about 30 seconds to open tight fitted cap.

    See simple, rudimentary pictures below.

    Or, use a fingernail and lift out and up on one side and it pops off. Works just as well.

    I had a few very tight ones, fingernails did not work, after that I tried flat screwdriver and no luck as well. I almost broke fingernails.
    It depends.
    I wish life was that easy.
    I was pissed, so I did tweezers one.

    The only issue I have is with a brand new pod...admittedly it is very tight the first time you remove it and someone tight the second time.

    However, I have incredibly short nails and can still manage to pop it off after about 30 seconds of struggling
