The Oxbar Magic Maze Pro was sent to me for review from Oxbar. Learn more about it here. This is a rechargeable, 10,000-puff disposable pod vape with adjustable wattage.
The first thing you notice when you get one of these is the box. There’s so much going on here. It makes me think of two of the most well-known ugliest websites on the internet; LingsCars.com and MillionDollarHomepage.com. There’s just too much going on here. It looks intentionally bad. And maybe it is intentional.
The Magic Maze Pro has a boxy shape to it, almost like an old-school non-disposable mod, which I really like. These have vibrant gradient color schemes that have a sort of grid or pixel pattern to them. The outer layer of the device is transparent, also giving it a nice sleek look.
At the top of the device is a comfortable clear mouthpiece, and next to that is a lanyard loop.
You also get a nice thick lanyard in each box, which I’ve always thought is one of those cool things Oxbar’s does. You wouldn’t expect a nice lanyard, or even one at all, to come with a disposable device.
The front of the device has a large amount of branding, with the words “Oxbar Pro” in big letters at the top, a logo in the middle, the flavor name below that, and the words Magic Maze at the very bottom of the device. All of this text is just sort of meh. It’s better than nothing, because if the branding weren’t there, the device would look too generic and boring, like the back of the device, but personally, I think Oxbar should look at ways of reducing all of this text and improving their designs with patterns and artwork.
At the bottom right corner of the front panel is a small square screen and an oval button below that.
At the bottom of the device are an airflow slider and a USB-C charging port.
The Magic Maze Pro is 88mm tall (3.5 in.), 50.0mm wide (2 in.), and 22.2mm thick (1 in). It weights 80.5g.
Display Screen and Adjustable Wattage
The screen on the front panel shows the wattage setting, the battery charge, and how much liquid is left in the device. After you take a hit or press the button, you’ll see the wattage level you’ve set it to. After about 5 seconds, the screen will change to show how much liquid is in the device, and then it’ll change again to show the battery charge level.
To change the wattage, press the button directly beneath the screen a single time. The wattage moves upwards in one-watt increments and then rolls back over to 11 after 15. This is all that the button does. You can’t turn the device on or off.
At 11 watts, you’ll get a slow and light hit. I find this setting better when the airflow is closed most of the way down to get a tight hit. 15 watts gives you a much stronger hit and is what you’d probably use if you like the airflow more open. But I prefer restricted draws in disposables so I prefer 15 watts at the most restricted airflow.
The Magic Maze Pro has an airflow designed for a range of Mouth-to-Lung to Restricted-Direct-Lung. The airflow is adjusted on a slider at the bottom of the device, so you can make small incremental adjustments as you need.
Oxbar sent me three flavors to try: Bubble Melon, Sakura Grape, and Watermelon Remix Ice.
There are 10 flavors in all, according to Oxbar’s website, and Bubble Melon isn’t included. After doing a little digging, I see they partnered with the Pod Juice e-liquid brand to create a collab version of the Magic Maze Pro. The Pod Juice version looks a little different on the front and says “Pod Juice,” but everything else about the device is the same. Although I don’t see the phrase “Nicotine not derived from tobacco” on the Pod Juice packaging, so that might also be a difference between the two.
So here’s what I think of the three flavors they sent:
I’m not sure what this flavor is supposed to be. I’m guessing it’s a watermelon bubble gum. At least, that’s what it tastes like to me. It’s hard to say, though, because I might be getting a melon like cantaloupe or honeydew. In any case, it’s a nice sweet fruity melon flavor with a slightly strong menthol hit.
With a name like this, you can expect this to be a grape flavor mixed with a bit of a floral flavor that comes from the Sakura cherry blossom flower. Sakura is known to have a light floral taste with a bit of earthiness and sweetness. All of those features are here, but it’s very light. And the grape tastes like sweet grape juice, sort of like Welch’s juice. I think there might be a little menthol here too. This is a good flavor.
Watermelon Remix Ice
This is a sweet fruity watermelon mix with a bit of ice to it. The ice isn’t extremely strong, but it’s a prominent part of the mix. The watermelon is more like a candy or syrup type of flavor.
Here are all 10 flavors in the official line:
- Blueberry Strawberry Dragon Fruit
- Blue Razz
- Fruit Paradise
- Rainbow Blast
- Razz Pineapple
- Sakura Grape
- Splash Bros Lemonade
- Strawberry Kiwi Ice
- Strawberry Watermelon
- Watermelon Remix Ice
I can’t find an official list of the Pod Juice line anywhere, but it looks like there may be a total of five flavors:
- Bubble Melon
- Watermelon Skittlz
- Pink Burst Chew
- Tiff Jewel Mint
- Fruity Pebz
Pros and Cons
- Adjustable wattage between 10-15 watts
- The adjustable airflow works great
- 18ml of liquid is a lot for a pod device
- The 50mg nicotine strength is strong
- The display screen that shows wattage, battery charge, and e-liquid levels
- The flavors are sweet and strong
- The device is a bit large
- The airflow is a little turbulent
- Not a con for everyone, but there is a koolada or mint flavor in each one
- The charging cable feels loose in the USB-C port
The flavors are all really good. They only sent me three, so I can’t tell you how good the other flavors are, but I like these three enough to believe the others would be just as good.
The devices look nice and are comfortable to hold and use. They are a little large, so they’re not the most portable vape, but they are small enough to carry around in your pocket. That size also allows them to fit a lot of e-liquid in here, so that’s a big plus.
Having adjustable wattage, and being able to set it in one-watt increments is a great feature that I haven’t seen in a disposable yet. And the screen showing your battery and liquid levels is great too. The adjustable airflow also works really well. Overall, it’s a great disposable. I can’t think of anything wrong with it.
- 10,000+ puffs
- USB-C rechargeable
- Display screen
- 1.0 Ohm internal coil
- 11-15w adjustable wattage
- 50mg nicotine
- 650mAh battery
- 18ml of liquid
