The Xlim SQ is OXVA’s latest addition to their line of Xlim pod vapes. The original OXVA Xlim comes in the pen-shaped form, while the Xlim SQ is a mini-box shape.

OXVA Xlim SQ keeps the same metallic gradient coloring that we’ve come to expect from the Xlim series. The pod system reuses the same Xlim V2 pods that are also available in its predecessor OXVA Xlim kit. It has a sensitive auto-draw and airflow control slider. Its 900mAh battery is recharged using the Type-C port located on the bottom of the device.

This review will take you through all the pros and cons we found about this pod vape after days of testing. Read further down the page to know more!

The OXVA Xlim SQ is a tiny device. The body is roughly 47mm x 47 mm x 14mm, or 1.85 in x 1.85 in x ½ in. The vape has a smooth sleek body, with a metallic coloring. You can choose from 8 colors, 4 gradient colors and 4 solid colors:

Gold Blue, Purple Black, Pink Green, Arctic Ice, Pink, Black, Gold, Light Blue

OXVA Xlim SQ pod kit

For review, we received a sample in the stunning Gold Blue color. It gives that blue-gold copper shade that is very popular right now in sunglasses and other products. The coloring wraps around the rounded body, but the top and bottom of the device are a black color with a carbon fiber pattern.

With the device in front of you, you have the OXVA Xlim SQ model name embossed on the front. The airflow control slider is located on the left side of the device, allowing for fine-tuned control. At the top right of the device is a spot for connecting the included lanyard. The lanyard is a metal chain and is surprisingly very well constructed. We can easily wear the chain around the neck to keep your Xlim SQ close.

The charging port is located on the bottom of the device and the pod seats into the device on the top left of the vape. It’s held securely by magnets.

Pod Cartridge (Xlim V2 Cartridge)

The Xlim V2 cartridge by OXVA itself is a black tinted, but still highly transparent for easy viewing of the e-juice levels. The pod has a base that connects to the device, which then tapers in a pyramid shape towards the mouthpiece opening. The pods offer side fill, so we can refill with ease after loosening the silicone fill port cover.

We can purchase the cartridges in 0.6-ohm for freebase and RDL hits, or in 0.8ohm and 1.2ohm mesh coils for nic salt and MTL. Any of the OXVA Xlim V2 pods are compatible with the Xlim series of devices.


When dropped from heights of 4-5 feet, the OXVA Xlim SQ definitely drops hard, but it isn’t damaged. The pod system’s strong magnets keep the cartridge securely seated in the device. The device does not scratch easily. And the lanyard is a great way to prevent you from dropping the Xlim SQ all the time.

Does the OXVA Xlim SQ leak?

No leaking was observed when reviewing the OXVA Xlim SQ. The silicone fill port cover makes a tight seal, so nothing is going to leak out that way. And the tapered mouthpiece design traps the e-juice within the pod.


The top and bottom edges of the Xlim SQ are a bit blunt against your hand, but this was observed in the other OXVA Xlim models. Overall the device is comfortable to hold. It’s neither clunky nor heavy. The metallic cover is smooth and the mouthpiece has a nice comfortable fit thanks to the tapered end.

Battery & Charging

OXVA Xlim SQ comes with a 950mAh battery. We experience no battery life issues when testing the device. It lasted a solid 8-9 hours of continuous vaping, so it can get you through a full day without issues.

The pod vape has super speedy charging, which users will appreciate. We can charge the device to full within around 30 minutes. The device has a small LED on the front, which turns green when charging. When fully charged the light turns off. The OXVA Xlim SQ is charged using a Type-C cable (not provided) that can be plugged into the charging port on the bottom of the device.

OXVA Xlim SQ might be small, but it packs a powerful punch. The 0.8 ohm (12-16W) mesh coil is pre-installed, but you can also swap to the 1.2-ohm (10-12W). With either option, you can enjoy your favorite nicotine salt e-juice delivered in a loose comfortable MTL draw. If you’d prefer to use freebase, you can try the cartridges with the 0.6-ohm (20-25W) mesh coils that are sold separately in a three-pack. With that resistance you get a satisfying RDL hit.

The Xlim SQ delivers bold throat hits and pumps out a ton of thick clouds, for such a small device. The coil pulls out excellent flavor from the e-juice. We tested this device with MRKT PLCE e-juice, in the flavor Fuji, Pear, Mangoberry, with a 2.4% nicotine content.


  • OXVA Xlim SQ Price: $14.09 at Sourcemore (on sale)

On the OXVA official website, the Xlim SQ kit is selling for $19.99. This pricing is very fair for all that the pod kit has to offer. The lanyard is sturdy and high-quality, it comes with two coils to start and a Type-C charging cable, and the device is small but mighty. We think most users will be more than satisfied with their purchase if they can pick this pod system up for less than $25.


The OXVA Xlim SQ is a great device, which makes sense coming from OXVA, with their existing line of powerful Xlim vapes. The Xlim SQ is perfect for anyone looking for the benefits of a pod vape, small, compact, great flavor delivery, and stylish, but wants the freedom and power behind a more advanced machine.

The pod vape charges incredibly fast, so you won’t be tethered to a charging cable for long. The ergonomic airflow control lets you decide exactly how you like to use your device, while the handy lanyard keeps the device close by without needing to fumble in your pockets for it every few minutes. All of the Xlim V2 cartridges are compatible with the Xlim SQ, so you can choose between freebase/RDL and salt nic/MTL. The choice is yours!
