Today we take a look at the OZ Slide pod mod. Yes you got it, it’s yet another newly released a Pod system. A first creation by Australian E-Liquid company, OzDrips.OzSlide header colours

The OZ Slide has the world’s first side sliding pod cartridge replacement feature which has been designed in Australian and manufactured in China.

What Can We Expect From the Oz Slide Pod System Kit?

The Oz Slide is available in two versions, a close pod (pre-filled with e-liquid) and an open version where you fill the pod with your own choice of liquid. We are going to be taking a look at the refillable version.

The device is a mouth to lung autodraw pod system which is ideal for Salt Nic based e-liquids. It is powered by a 300mAh integrated battery the device is available in two colour options, Pristine Silver and a Black Stainless Steel finish.

A side sliding pod cartridge and a unique LED display, the device is also fast at charging which is a bonus.OzSlide hand 100

So what do we think of this new pod system? Can it make the best pod vape list? Is going to be a corker or just worth a trip to the dunny?

Let’s go and up and close with the Oz Slide…………………………

This product was sent to us for the purpose of review. As always my thoughts and views are my own after a considerable testing period.

Design and Build Quality

The Kit comes presented well in a card draw box.

As you can see I have been sent the pristine silver version. As this is the sample kit I did not receive everything that comes with the retail version i.e. the USB cable was missing from mine.OzSlide kit content

Oz Slide Pod System Kit

Measuring in at 110mm X 21mm and just 9mm thick, the Oz Slider is pocket or purse friendly, weighing in at a paltry 45g.

The body of the device is made of Stainless Steel which gives the device somewhat of a futuristic look to it.

The Oz Slider consists of two parts, the stainless steel body and a plastic refillable 1.5 ml pod; the device has been designed well and has remarkable good quality of manufacture.

It has a feel of a higher end product.OzSlide mod and pod

Oz Slider Battery

The device has a 300mAh integrated battery. The highest wattage output has not been stated in the documentation, although the toot feels to me like 10 to 12 watts.OzSlide hand in

The top of the device is your mouth piece!OzSlide slot mouth bit

Looking into the side of the device where the pod sits, you will see 2 tiny gold plated spring loaded contact points. The shape of the housing perfectly complements the shape of the plastic pod.OzSlide slot for pod in mod

Below the pod fitment is the led screen which displays the OZ Slide logo and battery power status, the opposite side of the device is plain. OzSlide screen

The bottom of the device holds the micro USB charge port.OzSlide micro usb

The front of the device has branding stamped into the stainless steel. I cannot find any safety marks on this device!OzSlide stamped

Oz Slider Side Pod

The kit comes with a plastic bottom fill pod. The pod is not pre installed into the device. It has its own little pink case/cover lol.OzSlide cover and pod

 Pod Overview

  • Material is Ni80 coil resistance is 1.8Ω, no wattage rating is given.

Only 1 pod is included with the kit so when the coil reaches the end of its natural life you will have to buy another cartridge.

The pod is made of black plastic and it has to be said it’s very hard to see your remaining liquid through the plastic.OzSlide empty pod

The fill port is on the bottom of the pod and once filled is to be covered by a rubber bung (found in the box).

The mouthpiece is part of the device body. When the pod is new you will find a silicone plug in the mouthpiece hole.OzSlide mouth piece pod

The pod only fits into the device one way and has plastic rails on one of the edges. These are to help you remove the pod from the device, to which I have to say my pod is a rather tight fit!OzSlide rails on pod

If you look at the bottom of the pod you will see 2 gold plated contact points. A tiny airflow hole sits in between them with a small fill port hole to the side. This has to be covered once the pod is full of e-liquid.OzSlide contacts pod

The pod seems to be made quite well and gives the impression of being sturdy. However there is no safety or other marks on the pod!

Basic Quick Start Guide

Setting the Oz Slider up for use is very simple!

  2. Squeeze your bottle until the pod is full.OzSlide pilling pod
  3. Wipe away any excess liquid, do not allow liquid to stay on the connection points.
  4. Use one of the 2 rubber bungs in the box to seal off the fill port.OzSlide fill port bung in
  5. Turn the pod the right way up and remove the silicone bung from the mouth piece.OzSlide mouth bit plug remove
  6. Place the pod into the Oz Slider device.OzSlide placement of pod

Leave the device alone for around 2 or 3 minutes to allow the cotton to soak up liquid.

Oz Slide Battery

Make sure the battery is fully charged before first use! Mine was flat upon receiving it.

Battery functions

  • The screen will light when you first put the pod into the device
  • The screen will light on puffing the device
  • The screen will stay lite for approx 10 seconds after puffing the device

Remaining power

  • 5 bars 100%
  • 4 bars 75%
  • 3 bars 50%
  • 2 bars 25%
  • 1 bar 15%OzSlide screen working juice

It is recommended that when the battery reaches 20% you recharge it! Over discharging the battery may damage the battery and reduce its working life!

Flavour and Vapour Production

I am allergic to Nichrome and Nickel wires. I handed the device over to Mrs J for her to do the vape test. I could have done the test myself but I don’t fancy being ill LOL.

She said –

While the vape itself was warm it was not a hot vape, the draw was smooth with a good amount of flavour and the resulting vapour was as standard for pod systems!OzSlide liquid balance

Recommend E-liquid to use with the Oz Slider Pod System

Airflow

This is defiantly a mouth to lung device; while Mrs J said she wouldn’t call the draw too tight it is on the more restrictive side, even for her!OzSlide ready to use

Our notes

The battery recharging take approx 30 minutes, which was good considering the device lasted 2.5 hours of use!

While this sample kit did not come with a micro USB cable! I found one that did the job!OzSlide charging

The coil life seems OK. We have been using the device for over a week and the feedback is that the flavour is still fine.

“It’s a bit longer than I’m used to but the Oz slide felt OK in my hand” her normal every day pod system is the Smok Trinity Alpha with the 0.8Ω coil.

It is a shame that the device only came with one pod and that being Ni80! I would really have liked to have had a vape on this one myself!

Still the only bad report I’ve gotten from Mrs J is that she didn’t like tooting on the metal mouthpiece!

Pros

  • Design is good, it looks almost futuristic
  • Manufacture and quality is very good
  • Very easy to use
  • Fair battery life
  • Coil life is ok
  • Good flavour
  • Fair vapour production

Cons

  • Only 1 pod included with the kit
  • No choice of coil material
  • No indication what the wattage is being pushed through the coil
  • Product is a little on the expensive side
  • Replacement pods are not widely available (At the time of writing)
  • Device and pod have no safety markings on them

Final Review Verdict

Well, the OZ Slider is another pod system that my wife has inherited!

Personally I don’t think that the side sliding pod makes any difference to the overall function of the product, however with the body being one piece, it does give the unit a slight futuristic look to it.

The wire for all replaceable pods is Ni80, not good for those of us that suffer from allergies.

Would I Recommend the Oz Slide Pod System Kit?

For those looking for looking for something slightly different or for something to make them look a bit flash, then “Maybe”.

Would I Buy this Kit Again Due Loss or Damage?

Personally, I’d have to say a big “No”. I am allergic to the coil material the device uses. Of course this won’t affect all vapers.

OzDrips I think do need to bring out more varieties of wire type pods for this product even if they just added a stainless steel wire type.

Have you used the OzSlide kit? Would love to here your thoughts in the comments below.

Hi my name is Kevin, I started vaping back in 2009 mainly because my little boy at 3 years old was starting to copy the way daddy smoked a cigarette! Over the years I have gained a good amount of experience with different types of vaping hardware but I'm just a normal guy who enjoys sharing my experiences. This is why I started my Youtube vape review channel in 2014. To date the channel has had over 500,000 views. Being disabled, vaping has given me a gateway to meeting people from all different walks of life, many of those I would not have met under other circumstances. The way I look at my reviews is, if I can convince just one person to give up the stinky’s my job is done. I class myself as a tinkerer as I like to take things apart to see how they work and put them back together, yes that includes e-cigarette mods! One day I would like to be able to design my own mod. I am a dedicated father, and husband to my sweetheart of nearly 30 years! Family to me comes before anything else.
