I have a red mini and everyone said I needed the adapter, but I don't. My vivi attaches right to it. I use a 510 to 510 with the DCT's or else I have trouble tightening them down without unscrewing the tank and spilling the juice. That's probably use error however!
Apollo has the best customer service I have came across. I had a battery charger go bad that I got from them and they sent a replacement very fast. The replacement was actually a little bit better of a charger. They have fast shipping, the juices have zero chemical/bad after taste to them, and the live chat customer service on the website is awesome. Anytime I have had any kind of issue with anything from them they have been very polite and either educated me or replaced what was wrong. I would recommend them to anyone new to vaping.
I've had my beautiful SS Apollo Vtube matched with an equally attractive 3ml DCT for over a week now and love it. I've been vaping almost exclusively on this combo since it arrived. The fit an finish was remarkable, packaged and shipped well which arrived very quick after it was shipped. I did incur some delays in the shipping but as I've stated numerous times, Apollo's customer service is amazing. They were always friendly, professional and extremely helpful in resolving any issues I had.
As for the Vtube itself, it's gorgeous.. I'd post some pics of the device but there is no way I'll come close to matching what Morri posted earlier. As you can see from her images, this is one remarkable looking PV. The device functions as it should, no issues with any sort of malfunction or loss of performance. It does as it should, providing me with a range of voltages to vape whatever I throw at it. Great firing button that is a large easy to use button. Very solid construction and a a nice click feel when pressing it. As I've said, just an overall well constructed device that performs very well.
My only issue with it, was they ran out of full size vtubes in SS so I picked up the mini. Nothing wrong with the mini as it is. More just a little small for my giant hands lol. I have been getting accustomed to it and am adapting well. I feel the full size would be a better fit for me, but I'm loving this mini no matter what. The only drawback to the mini I can see though is the battery. Instead of the IMR 18650 from the full size, you get the IMR 18350. So naturally the battery life will be lower than the full size. On the plus side, they recharge faster as well! With the 3ohm DCT from apollo at higher volts, it can drain quickly. It didn't seem to hit very hard and I've been running it at 5.8-6v to try and get solid hits from it. That I'm sure is the cause for my quick draining of the battery. It may be due to the draw being a bit airy on the DCT, and using the adapter with it helps a bit with the draw. I'm sure using other clearos, cartos, or attys at lower voltage will extend the life of the charge but since I've only used the DCT on it I suppose I only see that side.
All in all, I'm very impressed with the Vtube and I am thrilled to own one. Thank you Apollo for this wonderful PV and fantastic customer service. I'm hoping more vapers can discover your products and enjoy them as much as all of us!
Hello all!!! Hope this finds everyone well?! I'm waaaay late in doing this review.
I won the Standard Vtube Kit from Apollo on the Apollo Ecigs Contest (Win an SS VV Kit) and $1000 in VTubes Per Round thread. I as others opted to upgrade my win to the SS Vtube which Apollo has been so gracious in letting everyone do! I wanted the full size, but unfortunately they were sold out at the time, so I ended up getting the SS mini version instead.
The SS Mini Vtube is a great looking VV PV, and being SS it is very solid in construction. The top 510 connection has the eGo style threading which comes in handy for those with eGo style carts/clearos. While we are looking at the top of the PV you will notice the center pin floats in the device. This will eliminate the need to pull the post on any cart/clearo that you might want to use. This Vtube is also great for dripping with its deep drip well.
The bottom battery cap is also an upgrade from its predecessor. It is completely SS, and while the threads are a little coarse you will have no problems with the threading. I opted to put a little Noalox lubricant on the threads of the cap.
The buttons are the same great buttons of the standard Vtube in that they are very "clicky". I have always like the Vtube for the sound of the button. The added plus on the SS Vtube is that the "fire" button is metal as well, and while I am not 100% sure I believe that the "- and +" buttons are too. The power button looks to be the standard red plastic.
Battery life will vary, but on the SS Mini Vtube with the supplied 18350 I get between 4 to 5 hours before the unit shuts down. I did have a problem with one of my batteries out of the box where the unit would shut down under load, but Sunny and Apollo were very quick to replace at no charge.
To top everything off Apollo ships the Vtube kit with a black leather-like carrying case, 2 18350 batteries, charger, 1 polished drip tip, and 1 3.0 ohm 510 atomizer!
All in all I am very impressed with the Vtube kit from Apollo. Thank you Sunny and all the crew at Apollo for making my experience with them a great one!
And a special thank you to the Uber helpers KK and Redd
A brief scene from Jurassic Park:
[Tim pops up wearing a pair of night vision goggles]
Gennaro: Hey, where'd you find that?
Tim: In a box under my seat.
Gennaro: Are they heavy?
Gennaro: Then they're expensive. Put 'em back.
There is an inherent quality associated with heavy electronics, and the Apollo Stainless Steel Mini VTube is heavy. This is not a mod to be stored in your tiny opera purse or to be dropped casually in a dubiously-attached shirt pocket - it has some heft to it thanks to the solid steel housing, and as the weight would imply, the SS Mini VTube is a quality device. Surprisingly, it's not expensive - especially if you use Apollo's 30%-off discount code, which means you get more than you pay for - a rarity in these modern throw-away consumer times.
The redesigned drip well/eGo-friendly top cap marks a huge improvement of the VTube's form and function, and the kit also includes a beautiful stainless steel 510 tip (with an oversized hole for clean and easy dripping), a 3ohm atty, a flat-top battery (your AW IMR 18350's will fit just fine though), single-bay charger, and an Apollo-branded carrying case. My only complaint with the entire package is that the atomizer they included was glossy black instead of silver, which would have matched the Mini/tip combo's motif a little more. Even so, this is one sharp unit:
This is a fantastic set and it is now my de facto sampling/DIY testing rig. Thanks Apollo!
Give a man a fish, he'll eat for a day. Teach a man to fish, he'll eat for life.
Give an octopus nunchuks, no one's ever eating fish again.
I just wanted to compliment Apollo for their delicious RY4. I reviewed it, and sent a sample to billherbst. He also reviewed it. Here are our reviews, quoted from The Really Big RY4 Roundup (long). Both of us liked this ejuice very much!
