Our Review On The Apollo eGo Box Kit

Apollo eGo Box Kit

We have talked a lot about compact box mods in the last few months, but the list isn’t over just yet and today I want to share my personal thoughts on a device that comes packed with everything needed to get you started in the world of advanced personal vaporizers. It’s called the Apollo eGo Box Kit and it’s especially designed for all those beginners who want to give vaping a try, or vape pen users who are craving for an upgrade. *Note: Do not confuse the ego Box Kit with ego vape pens.

The EVOD clearomizer is pretty cool for a beginner, and with the glass walls you don’t have to worry about it being cracked by cinnamon or clove type e-liquids. The vapor production is more than decent, and the taste is absolutely impressive – considering that this is a beginner’s style device. You can buy a pack of 5 extra coil heads for around $10 and each one of them can last from 3 to 4 weeks, depending on how often you vape.

Apollo eGo Box Kit is packed with plenty of power and battery capacity to provide at least two days of top notch puffing. It can deliver between 4.2V when fully charged and 3.3V when the battery is nearly depleted, but there’s no way of adjusting the voltage or wattage. You could imagine it being fairly similar to a regular eGo style battery, but with a capacity of 2,000 mAh and shaped like a compact box. It only comes with a firing button on the side, which you are going to press three times to turn the device on or off. As it’s intended for beginners it’s a very simple plug and play vaporizer that simple and intuitive to use.

Since the Apollo eGo Box Kit is a pass-through device it means you can vape on it while the battery is charging and the port is located on the base. Next to the charging port you will notice a full sized USB slot, which can be used as a power bank to charge your electronics (like phones or tablets) from it. And while the 2,000 mAh battery is probably not going to be enough to fully charge a smartphone, it’s surely going to get it to at least 50%, which is great in case of an emergency. You can even use the provided micro-USB cable if you have an android phone.

Apollo eGo clearomizerAs the names says, the Apollo eGo Box Kit is an eGo style device and it’s probably intended to work best with eGo type clearomizers. However, it does come with a 510 connector, but it’s located at the top and many of the bigger tanks are going to look super weird when mounted (like the Nautilus Mini for instance). But if you want more vapor and flavor than what the EVOD can provide, you can buy a Mini Protank 3, an Aspire K1, or an Aerotank Mini and take things to a whole new level.

But the performance of the battery with the EVOD clearomizer is more than satisfying for a beginner, and it’s going to take months of use before one gets tired with the vapor production, flavor or throat hit. The battery lasts a very long time (up to three days if you’re a moderate vapor) and charging the Apollo eGo Box Kit can take up to 3 -4 h. There is a light indicator that is going to notify you when it reaches 100%.

Or maybe the firing button was supposed to light up in different colors like on the other Apollo products and mine got broken, I can’t really tell. But all I know is that I recharged the one I have when I noticed very little vapor coming from the Mini Protank 3 tank I used it with.

Considering the price of just under $30, this kit is excellent for all those on a short budget that want a decent vaping device that’s easy to use and upgradable in the future with a new clearomizer. I didn’t encounter any issues while using it and the build quality is very good. It’s surely the type of vaporizer that will last for years.
