The Origin is an AIO pod mod that fires to 40w and is powered by a single, long-lasting 18650 battery. It is also light and ergonomically designed, making it the perfect device for vapers away from home all day. It can fit anywhere without causing inconvenience, and it is comfortable to hold.

The pod holds 3 ml of liquid, and it uses 0.3 and 0.5-ohm coils that generate great restricted lung hits full of flavor. Additionally, it uses a unique chipset that makes the mod highly responsive.

OXVA Origin Vaping Experience Review

The vaping experience is unforgettable. When the 0.3-ohm mesh coil, the flavor stands out, allowing the vapor to taste every ingredient in the liquid. There are never any sudden drops in flavor, dry hits, or burnt taste. Each hit is smooth, especially when using juices with a high vegetable glycerin content. The 0.5-ohm coils are not quite as good as the 0.3-ohm coils, but they are still outstanding. The only drawback to using them is that they occasionally make bubbling noises.

Enhancing the vaping experience is the Proton chip. The chip helps the mod to generate a steady stream of wattage output and maintain an adequate resistance range. It is also partly responsible for preventing dry and burnt hits. This chip is one of the central reasons behind this mod’s success.

The OXVA Origin has gotten a lot of positive press on Reddit. Additionally, it is widely available in Canada, the US, and many more.

Vapor Production

The vapor for these pod mods is exceptionally high, especially when using the 0.3-ohm coil. To get the highest cloud production possible, use a liquid that is high in vegetable glycerin. Not only will the hits be smooth, but they will also be cloudy.

Safety Features

The Origin is loaded with safety features to ensure the safety of the vaper and his or her device.

  • Timeout Protection: Prevents the cotton wicking from burning
  • Over-Discharge Protection: Battery does not over-discharge and cause damage to the rest of the vape
  • Short Circuit Protection: Voltage is prevented from returning to the device when short-circuit detected
  • Overcharge Protection: Battery protected against damage caused by overcharge
  • Output Over-Current Protection: Intelligently detects current when limits are exceeded

Unboxing the Starter Kit

OXVA Origin kit

  • Single Origin AIO Mod
  • Preinstalled 0.3-ohm UNI Coil
  • 0.5 UNI Mesh Coil
  • USB Cable
  • User Manual

There is also a 1.0-ohm coil option available, but it has to be ordered separately. There will also be a 1.4-ohm coil and an RBA deck available at some point.

Internal Build Quality and Design

The Origin is a well designed and built AIO pod mod. It weighs 70 grams and measures 32.8 x 23.5 x 113.5 mm. The juice is held in a 3 ml pod that is hidden behind a magnetically secured panel. Even with the panel, juice levels can be monitored thanks to the inclusion of a juice window. It also uses a removable, proprietary drip tip.

The body is smooth and sleek, and it is available in several colors, like black and red trim, black, muzo green, silver aurora, and black carbon fiber. Some of these different colored surfaces show fingerprints easily and have to be continuously wiped. However, this does not affect performance in any way.

Battery Efficiency

The main advantage of choosing the Origin is its powerful battery. It only uses a 18650, but it can last hours or days, depending on the coil. The 0.3-ohm coil drains the battery the most, lasting just 300 puffs. The battery will last for 500 puffs with the 0.5-ohm coil.

For the best battery life, the 1.0-ohm coil is the way to go. If this coil is used, the battery can last 1,300 puffs.

The OLED Srceen

The screen is 0.69 inches, and it displays information about the wattage and battery life in bright, easy to read letters and numbers. The wattage is displayed on the left margin, and the battery life bar is on the right side of the screen. Ohms and voltage are shown in the center.

OXVA Origin Pods

Origin pods hold 3 ml of liquid. They are easy to refill and easy to replace the coils thanks to the plug and play design.

The airflow is at the bottom and can be adjusted to get a restricted hit, or it can be opened fully for more airy draws. The pods last a long time between refills thanks to their high capacity.

Compatible Juices

High VG juices with low nicotine content work best with this pod mod. These liquids will generate the highest volumes of clouds and the best flavor.

OXVA Origin Replacement Pods

Replacement pods are very inexpensive and easy to find. They can be bought at Element Vape and cost $4.99. There are two pods per package.

OXVA Origin Replacement Coils

OXVA Origin coil packages are also on sale at Element Vape for reasonable prices. Choose between 0.3, 0.5, and 1.0 ohm coils. Each package costs $14.95 and contains five coils.

How to Use the OXVA Origin

This device is easy to figure out. Five clicks of the firing button turn it on, and five clicks turn it off. There is only a “plus” adjustment button, but it round-robins and quickly reaches the desired wattage.

However, it is easy to overshoot the target wattage. OXVA should include a “minus” button on their next model.

Step-by-Step Instructions for Pod and Coil

Follow these steps to refill the pod:

  • Take the side panel off of the vape
  • Rotate the pod and then remove it
  • Unplug the silicone stopper and fill the pod with juice
  • Replace the stopper and repeat the above steps in reverse order

To replace the coil:

  • Remove the side panel from the vape
  • Take the pod out
  • Pull the coil out of the pod
  • Unscrew the airflow control ring from the coil
  • Screw the airflow control ring onto the new coil
  • Reinsert the coil back into the pod
  • Fill with liquid and allow for five to ten minutes for the coil to absorb the juice

Competing Products

OXVA Origin vs. Aegis Boost

These are both very well made 40w mods, but several differences need to be taken into account. The Aegis Boost is significantly bigger than the Origin, but it is by no means less portable, and it is not difficult to handle. But, vapers who want something tiny should go with the Origin.

GeekVape Aegis Boost 40W

Another difference is that the Aegis Boost has a built-in 1,500 mah battery. One area where the Aegis Boost excels over the Origin is in juice capacity. Its pods carry 3.7 ml of liquid.

OXVA Origin vs. Vinci X

The Vinci X has several advantages over the Origin. Like the Aegis Boost, it is significantly larger, and it also has much more juice capacity (5.5 ml).

Vinci X

The Vinci X also has a larger and more colorful screen. Finally, there are a lot more settings on the Vinci X than the Origin. Also, they are both around the same price. The Vinci X is more geared toward advanced vapers.

Final Thoughts About the OXVA Origin

The Origin is an excellent AIO pod mod, especially for vapers transitioning from mods like the Juul. It does not have many settings, save for airflow control, and it is easy to refill and replace the mesh coils. Best of all, it is sold at a reasonable price. The only area needing improvement is the one adjustment button. It would be nice if they added a minus button.

Anyone who has vaped the OXVA Origin is welcome to comment. Please share your thoughts about this mod and whether you would recommend it.

I love the written word, and in my career as a journalist, I strive to provide the facts about everything I write about. There are too many false and alarmist stories out there about life and vaping mainly. My mission is to make e-cigarettes less scary to people with informative articles and extensive research on not only the possible evils of cigarettes and Big Tobacco, but the objective side of e-cigs.
