So guys, it finally came in after the long weight!
Here's my review, expect it to be updated soon with pictures, and a detailed and slightly humorous video review to come very soon.
To start, it's shiny. Very shiny. It arrived in an envelope, simply wrapped with padding and a receipt. No box, nothing. It's no big deal though since I ordered just the tube alone.
I've outfitted it with a freshly charged 2250mah Panasonic 18650 battery.
The 510 adapter is recessed, and no longer "flush". there is what seems to be a pin that makes contact with the vapor producing unit that you adapt to it, and my guess is that it's adjustable, but I could be wrong. The drip well is nice too, no more spillage from tilting it. My old LT had that issue, and it probably added to its demise.
The eGo adapter is a nice touch, both functionally and aesthetically. It makes the unit look "complex" unlike similarly shaped mods on the market. The end caps are solid, shiny, and do their job. The bottom cap screws in effortlessly, and doesn't bind with the threading anymore.
The Apollo logo is indeed etched on, and it looks AWESOME. The "Volcano" logo peeled off effortlessly, it sucked.
The buttons rattle a little bit, but they now take some effort to press. All the buttons have a satisfying "click", which is very nice. I'm liking these a lot.
The LCD is as expected, nothing special. There is no text on the underside of the screen anymore as well.
The metal is solid, very solid. This is real stainless steel. It weighs practically the same without a battery as my old LT WITH a battery. It's heavy, and putting a battery in makes it heavier. It's got a nice, hefty weight to it, kind of like a car from the 70's.
Did I mention heavy?
It KICKS, and it kicks hard. Out of the box, it drove every atomizer I put on it very nicely. The vapor is thick and delicious too. It's almost like the internals have been "refined" rather than updated. It's no 3.2a limit, but it really doesn't bother me. I compared the "hits" side by side, and the new unit kicks like a premium mod on the market. I might not even want a Provari anymore!
Voltage changes seamlessly, There is no lag/delay on the buttons, as none with the power button either. I have been getting hits where the unit doesn't fire, and I'm hoping that this clears up after a while of use. It's not a huge deal, but it wasn't expected either.
The redesigned 510 connection actually helps deliver a little more airflow to your atty/carto, it fixed my io6's issues for the most part.
Comments and Issues:
None really. I love it and it was worth the wait.
I do hope the non-firing issue settles itself out, and I hope the top cap is redesigned so others can use Vision's on it. I don't use them, but I'm sure many of you do.
Aside from that, it's not easy to clean out the recessed drip well and ego connection, but they serve a damn good purpose.
Thanks for reading guys, and check back for updates!
