Oxva Xlim C Pod Vape Review

As an experienced vape reviewer trying new devices for over a decade, it's rare I come across an unfamiliar company. So reviewing the XLIM C—a pod system by OXVA, founded just in 2019—piqued my interest.

The China-based OXVA combined "ox" with the "va" in vape, equaling “ox vape." While only a few years old, OXVA impresses out of the gate with its premium XLIM C pod mod.

Overview and Unboxing

The OXVA XLIM C keeps functionality straightforward as a compact pen-shaped pod device with useful personalization options. An internal 900 mAh battery powers either the 0.6-ohm or 0.8-ohm meshed coils included to produce satisfying flavor and cloud production.

Cracking open the midfield-style box reveals the standard kit contents:

  • 1x XLIM C device
  • 1x XLIM C pod
  • 1x 0.6-ohm coil
  • 1x 0.8-ohm coil
  • 1x Type-C cable
  • 1x Lanyard
  • 1x User manual

The range of available frame colors immediately grabbed my attention. No less than 10 eye-catching color options allow vapers to match any style, from basic shades to gradients to glossy schemes.

Build Quality and Design

Despite its light 40 gram weight, the XLIM C feels sturdily constructed. Its aluminum alloy chassis avoids any cheap plastic feel while fitting nicely into pockets with dimensions of 114.5mm x 14mm x 24mm.

The side fire key cutting an "X" shape offers a satisfying clickiness when firing or utilizing various button functions. An adjacent sliding airflow controller enables easy adjustments from a tight MTL draw up through a restricted DTL.

The easy-fill pod connects firmly to the battery through strong magnets with no wiggle. To monitor juice levels, the pod must get tilted since its dark tinting otherwise obscures viewing.

Getting Started

Priming the 0.8-ohm mesh coil with a few drops before inserting into the pod took just a minute. From there, normal intuitive pod system processes apply.

The top cap gets popped off to access the fill hole. Juice then gets squirted in while taking care not to allow oversaturation.

Various button presses enable useful customization for vape intensity. Five clicks turn the unit on and off, three clicks cycle through three power levels, and holding the button triggers firing.

Performance and Features

Putting the XLIM C through testing reveals OXVA developed an impressive pod device, especially for a relatively unknown company.

Both the 0.6-ohm and 0.8-ohm integrate exotic Kanthal wire for optimal conductivity and temperature regulation. I experimented with 50/50 20-24mg nicotine salts and found pleasant warmth with no harshness.

Delivering accurate ratings, the 900 mAh battery lasted through day-long moderate use. It took around 40 minutes to recharge at a measured 1.5A via the Type-C port. While falling a touch short of the listed 2A max input rating, 1.5 amps still juiced up rapidly.

Allowing adjustments tantamount to a simple mod, the colorful LED shows output levels from 8W on the low end up to 22W maximum depending on coil installed. This versatility accommodates both MTL and restricted DTL preferences.

Impressively, I squeezed over 30mL lifetime and crisp taste from the coils before any hint of degradation. This exponential longevity minimize costs by reducing coil replacement frequency.


  • Excellent machined build quality
  • Ultra lightweight and portable

  • Handy onboard adjustments

Rarely can such a compact, beginner-friendly pod device claim near-premium performance on par with top-tier vape brands. Yet the OXVA XLIM C challenges much more expensive setups with its prodigious battery efficiency, exceptional coil longevity, and overall reliability.

Factor in the diversity of controls despite a plug-and-play format, and OXVA has a real overachiever on their hands. For an electrifying introduction, their XLIM C warrants strong consideration from novice and veteran vapers alike.
