OXVA Xlim Pod ReviewNovember 9, 2022
I was so impressed with the OXVA Xlim SQ that I reviewed a couple weeks ago that its become one of my main vape devices. I was so impressed that I decided to pick up its older sibling, the Xlim Pod Kit as a backup for when the battery runs low.
About the OXVA Xlim Pod
Sporting a sleek aluminium body, the OXVA Xlim Pod is about the same size as many disposable vapes and is just as portable. It is equipped with a 900mAh battery and adjustable airflow to suit the user’s preference.
What’s in the box?
Inside the box you get:
- The OXVA Xlim device
- Two 2ml cartridges: 1x 0.6 ohm (20 to 25 Watts) and 1x 0.8 ohm (12 to 16 Watts)
- One USB C charging cable
OXVA Xlim Pod Review
Admittedly, I knew what to expect when I bought this device as it utilises the same cartridges and many of the same features as the Xlim SQ. It does however come with an LCD screen that provides the user with some useful information, which is a massive bonus.
Look and Feel
With a pen shaped design, the OXVA Xlim Pod is easy to carry around whilst on the go. I use it a lot when typing away at the computer and it doesn’t get in the way.
There is a range of colours to choose from, most being a two tone design such as black/red and Arctic Ice (blue/white). But solid colours such as black and silver are available too. As regular readers will know, I would normally opt for a solid black kit, but they were out of stock at the time, so I broke with tradition and went for a black and white kit.
As I mentioned earlier, the Xlim pod has a solid aluminium body. I’m a fan of this on vape kits as it always looks great and makes them durable.
Whilst you can lock the device to prevent it from firing unintentionally, the button on this kit is almost in-line with the body which prevents accidental firing whilst being transported. It’s useful for some one like me who can’t be bothered locking and unlocking a device all the time.
The LED screen is a great feature that shows the current battery level, wattage and number of puffs taken on the device. Now that I have this, I wish the SQ had one too.
The OXVA Xlim Pod allows users to choose between autodraw and using the fire button. Personally, I prefer auto draw as it is such a convenient feature, and don’t see the point in using the button when you don’t have to.
Just like on the SQ, the airflow is adjustable by moving the slider on the side. This is a useful feature, and one I missed whilst reviewing the Freemax Galex Nano last week. Usually, I leave the airflow open so I can vape direct to lung, but if you prefer mouth to lung, you can close the slider to get the most from it.
In order to refill the cartridges you remove the rubber stopper on the side of the pod. I haven’t had any issues with this and it doesn’t leak out. Additionally the coils are built into the pods, so when they burn out, just grab a new pod. Clean and simple.
A fully charged battery will last me for around 8ml of e-liquid, which is pretty much to be expected from a 900mAh battery. It would be nice if the capacity was higher, but that’s down to today’s battery technology and OXVA can’t make it last longer without making it chunkier.
The ability to deliver a high hit of flavour is what makes the Xlim range stand out from the crowd
The Xlim Pod delivers intense taste when used with either nic salts or shortfills and is true to the flavour of the e-liquid. I can’t find any fault with this aspect.
I love this vape kit. Along with the SQ I now use it daily and just can’t get over how good it’s ability to deliver fantastic flavour is. I can’t recommend it enough.
Where to buy
I picked up my OXVA Xlim Pod Kit from SMKD for just £29.99. It’s worth every penny.
