    I have had my SS Vtube since May and I love it more everyday. The button is easy to use, and I love the different volts I get. It works fantastic. It's always with me. If your looking for a VV Mod look no futher, this is it. Some say noobies should wait on these, but I wish I had one of these when I started.

    I also won in the Apollo contest that is going on a sample pack of E-liquid. There liquid is really good and impressed with the strenght of the flavor. Lots of it.

    Mallboro is very good, not overly sweet. It has a different taste to it, a different tobacco flavor and its good.

    Ry4 is also not overly sweet. Nice smooth flavor again a different flavor then most I have tried. Yummy. Addicting.

    Sahara, It is my favorite This is a tobacco flavor for sure. A small touch of ashyness, very smooth, touch of sweet and I am hooked on this, will be buying a bottle of this very soon.

    Clover, This really suprised me. I don't like clover and I have tried a few. Every time it would blow out my taste buds. I sat this one a side and wasn't going to try it. But i grabed it by mistake. I new it when I took a puff. Wow, I loved it. It is really smooth not over powering. Didn't numb me up. The best clover flavor I ever had. Sure suprised me. I will be getting a bottle of this.

    Coffee, I never liked coffee juice and I really don't like this either. I think it's because I drink coffee all day long. But it really does taste like coffee. Not bitter but very smooth. If you like coffee flavors I would highly recommend this one.

    So I will be buying 4 out of 5 flavors. I just can't say enough about Apollo, there a great vendor and one that I can trust. Very important to me. I have also bought from them the DCT and refills, clearomizers and all works great. I wouldn't wear there banner if I didn't repect them as a vendor.

    Review of Apollo VTube Kit - Regular - Chrome

    Also wanted to show how fast I received my Vtube as well.
    order on June 15, 2012 15:10:00 94549 Electronic Notification
    received June 18, 2012 14:04:00 GRANITE CITY, IL 62040 DELIVERED

    After reading reviews and taking advice from a few ECF'ers I took plunge and order from Apollo.
    Apollo has a nice price for their chrome v tube kit. Once I received my kit I charge the battery with the supplied charger once charge I put another battery in to charge for rotation, that way I will not be without a charge battery. I put the battery in kick up the voltage and played around till I found my sweet spot and I was in heaven. Nice and consistent voltage throughout battery life, I usually change batteries once they hit 3.5-3.6ish. After a month plus the v tube is still performing as the day I bought it. The chrome finish may be a finger print magnet but I still love the look of it and the feel of it. I do take this v tube with me everywhere and the finish only has a very few wear marks on it, so you will not be disappointed if you are like me and take your pv everywhere you go.

    Default Apollo Standard Starter Kit

    I have been vaping for over a year now and have moved up to variable voltage devices, tanks and atomizer dripping at times. After 40 years of two packs of analogs a day this is a great thing.
    A very good, old friend of mine and I Skype at least a couple of times a month to keep up. Well, while she is smoking, I am vaping. She showed interest in what I was doing and I explained the whole ecig process to her.
    What great timing!! I won an Apollo Standard Starter Kit from Apollo's contest thread here on ECF.
    I received the kit within two days of registering on Apollo's website and it blew me away. The Charging case is absolutely beautiful with a durable, soft rubber feel. The "fit and finish" are perfect. The two batteries fit the case perfectly and the buttons are "clicky" as one would expect from a much more expensive device. The cartos have a good variety for a newbi to decide what they like.
    Well I was very impressed with this kit and wish I had something like this when I started vaping. I shipped the kit to my friend today and I'm sure she will love it. I will report back and edit this post when she has had a chance to try it out. But I am sure the next time we Skype we will both be vaping! Thank you, Apollo!

Has lots of flavor and a juice I couldn't vape all day but one ya my wanna try after dinner or supper and then even try mixing with some of yer fave other juices. Really makes some good concoctions, try it! Now ifn I could jest win one of them thar vtubes!!

    I would like to tell you about the most incredible VV. I won this Apollo VTube Kit, and I am in love. I have literally only put it down to eat, sleep, and bathe. LOL It is sleek, beautiful, hefty (which is nice) and total 100% class. I have never owned a VV device before and I am totally blown away by the incredible beauty, detail and workmanship that has obviously been put into this work of art.

    I will post some different photos a little later on, but here are a few until I can add them and more about why I loves this PV!

    Here are the new pictures of the beauty. the older ones at still at the bottom.

    I started with disposables from a gas station and decided that I had enough of smoking analogs. After reading through recommendations here on ECF I decided to order the V-Tube Kit from Apollo. I got a great discount on the kit, so I also purchased some liquids and a tank to go with my new attempt at quitting cigarettes. My shipping was super fast 2-3 days, and customer service was awesome. I had a small issue with the manual fire button not firing every once in a while, so I contacted customer service by chat and had my return slip emailed immediately. I sent it back for an exchange, and provided customer service with a tracking number. That day, after receiving my tracking number, my replacement V-Tube was shipped out! I could not be happier with the prompt attention and service I have received from Apollo.

    Oh, I also won a new tank in the contest, that was shipped to me when I placed another order for supplies.
    Thank you Apollo.

    Last week I purchased a black standard VTube kit that Ashley helped me with. I bought it as a gift for someone. It arrived in the mail much faster than I expected. The condition was perfect. Great packing.

    Since this was a gift I didnt want to play with it. Too much. But I couldnt resist. I inserted the battery and screwed on my own ce2 and took it for a test vape. I was amazed how nice the draw was. I played with the voltage setting was quick and easy and found myself enjoying the vape right at 4.2v

    I fell in love with the trigger button as its large and solid feeling under my thumb. After 45 minutes realized what I had to do. Box this one back up after wiping it down and order myself one.

    When I thought about everything in the kit it struck me as a great deal and everything someone would need. After trying it I realized it offered so much more. A great vaping experience and smooth operation!

    Needless to say I now have a silver vtube arriving Monday I expect.

    Thanks Apollo and Ashley!

    I gotta admit. I love my pretty red vtube from Apollo and vape all day with it. But I ordered the Tgo kit for an out and about device and I really, really like it. As a matter of fact, I have used it more than the vtube since I got it yesterday! Love, love, love the portability! I just juiced up a couple tips, charged up the batteries and am set for a day of errands! No need to carry along a bunch of supplies.....these two last all day! Now if I were still tied to a desk all day, IDK if I would need a little more juice.....but even if I did, the tips are a lot easier to carry along than bottles of juice! Great product Apollo....and LOL....I like those blue lights on the bottom too!

    Default My review of the Apollo VTube - 8.5 out of 10

    Okay, I've had my VTube for just over a week now and it's time to review it.

    Since this turned out to be a bit of a longer review than I thought it would be, I will go ahead and post my rating at the top as well as the bottom. I'm saying 8.5 out of 10

    Let's start with Apollo. Their customer service is great. While I haven't had to contact the company direct regarding anything, they maintain a strong presence on ECF now and sunny responds fairly quickly to anything brought up in the thread. Of course running big prize contests doesn't hurt.

    I had been looking at the VTube for some time as a nice mid-level APV and would have been purchasing one soon; however, I won my VTube in the 2nd running of their big contest, so in the end I didn't have to purchase one. However, I won't let that cloud my review.

    Packaging is quite nice. Everything fit into a smaller mailer than I would have imagined, but that happens a lot in the PV/APV world it seems.

    What the website says you get:

    • 1 variable-voltage Regular (5 inches) or Mini VTube (3.75 inches)
    • 1 black Apollo leather carry case
    • 1 High capacity 18650 rechargeable battery for the Regular VTube
    • 1 Battery charger
    • 1 Drip tip
    • 1 3.0-ohm high resistance 510 atomizer


    What I got:

    • 1 variable-voltage Regular (5 inches) or Mini VTube (3.75 inches)
    • 1 black Apollo leather carry case
    • 1 High capacity 18650 rechargeable battery for the Regular VTube
    • 1 Battery charger
    • 1 Drip tip
    • 2 3.0-ohm high resistance 510 atomizer


    (I did delete some extra text regarding the mini since this review is on the standard, as well as the extra text after the atomizer, just because it wasn't beneficial to the review)


    So there was no drip tip, but 2 atomizers. Okay they look the same in the baggie, so no big deal. I have plenty of drip tips lying around, but if it had been the other way around; I can see where someone would be upset here.

    Now let's move onto the device itself. It's the black one, so the body is made of aluminum. It has a very sturdy feel to it and I would imagine it could handle drops and falls pretty well. I won't intentionally subject mine to this, but based on how it feels. I'm reminded of Maglite brand flashlights when I hold it. The end caps are plastic covered, but at least for the bottom cap, it is plastic over aluminum so it is pretty solid. The black paint has a bit of a texture to it. Nothing grippy, but it's not totally glossy either. I like it in that aspect. The 510 connector appears to be I guess brass? Like almost every other 510 APV I've seen. It feels solid when I screw any 510 accessory into it, though once screwed in, it does appear mine is off center just a little. There's a slight angle to it. However, this doesn't affect the use of it at all, so I'm not too worried.

    The fire button is very solid with a resounding click when pressed. The device has 3 smaller buttons that control power on/off, volts up, and volts down. These buttons have been discussed on here in the main Apollo thread and I feel could have been better done. They are loose inside the housing. They extend out and rattle when the device is moved around. The only time they are truly flush is when it is laying on its side with the buttons on top. Trivial to some I am sure and not a true deal breaker for me, but still something that could have been engineered a little better I think.

    I have the standard sized VTube, so the battery that came with it is an 18650. This is your fairly standard battery that it seems most vendors include in kits. It's an IMR 18650 3.7v 1600mAh. I have found that with using my VTube at home in the evenings chain vaping on it, I get at least 2 to 2.5 nights worth of use out of it before it needs to be recharged. I purchased a 2nd 18650 locally so I don't have to worry about not having use of the device during battery charging.

    Battery is easy to change, just unscrew the bottom end cap and swap out. I haven't tested it myself, but I believe this device has a polarity checker to make sure you don't put the battery in backwards.

    The charger included is very simple and basic, but gets the job done. Outputs 4.2v at 600mAh.

    The included instruction manual covers almost everything you need to know about the device and appears to have been initially written in English, not auto translated from another language like so many others. This is a very nice plus I feel, although there are a couple of small grammatical and punctuation errors in it. Trivial maybe, but still they stand out. I do have 2 major issues with the manual though. On the page discussing battery charging, it states that includes is "1x Battery charging station." "2 x 3.7v 18650 Lithium ion batteries and appropriate power cables." The website does state there is only 1 battery in the kit, but to have a manual that shows differently is a bit of a negative I think. Reading on the ECF I have learned that the device has a built in volt meter. If you click the red power button 7 times, the LCD will display the power left in the battery. Nowhere in the manual is this feature listed.

    Okay, this is getting long and I will wrap it up now.

    The overall picture is that this is a great device for the price point Apollo is selling it at. The overall construction is very solid with just a few minor things as I noted. This is a device I would have been very happy with if I had purchased it, and I will recommend it to others looking for a good mid-level APV device.

    On a scale of 1 - 10, I'll give it a solid 8.5.

    Now for some pretty pictures




    I have broken even, but I've stopped keeping track of spending
