Apollo isn’t one of the most well known brands in the world of e-cigs, but they are certainly worth a second look. When I tried the Apollo e-cig, I had mixed feelings. Some of the kits are really good and others leave a lot of room for improvement. Overall, I really think we’ll see it surge in popularity in the next few months.
Apollo e-cigs are very affordable and even their biggest kits are priced well under the market average. I tried several of the Apollo kits and was instantly impressed with the overall package presentation. Everything was packaged nicely and well organized so you could assemble the e-cig quickly and start vaping right away. Here is a closer look at the Apollo kits that I’ve recently tried.
Apollo Superior eGo CE4 Kit
This kit is priced affordably and includes a lot of products. It comes fully stocked with 2 Apollo Superior eGo Batteries, 2 CE4 Clearomizers, 1 10ml bottle of Apollo USA Made E-Juice, 1 Empty 10ml bottle for mixing e-liquids, 1 USB charger, 1 wall adapter, 1 Lanyard carry pouch, and 1 instruction manual. The 900mah lithium batteries are high powered and they will last around 9 hours when they are completely charges. The clearomizers hold up to 1.6ml of e-liquid and Apollo says they should last for around 500 puffs.

Overall, I felt like the Superior eGo was a good product. The vapor was pretty smooth and I enjoyed it. This e-cig provides a more manageable throat hit than some other brands, but it will vary with flavors. It’s very satisfying for an ego model and provides more vapor than a regular e-cig. It’s not as large as the big, clunky mods, but it’s big enough to get the job done. This is probably the biggest I would go for ordinary everyday use anyway.
Apollo eSlim Kit
Next up, I want to mention the brand new eSlim Kit. Now as a little backstory, this is the replacement for the Elipse Kit. I tried the Elipse awhile back and did not have a good experience with it. Overall, it was just complicated, clunky, and difficult to use. But Apollo obviously realized the errors with that version and they no longer sell the Elipse. Instead, they have replaced it with an ugraded version called the eSlim Kit.
In this kit, you get 2 batteries, 1 USB charger, a wall adapter, 2 refillable cartomizers, and a 10ml bottle of e-liquid. It’s a pretty basic kit, but it looks promising. We are hoping to try it soon and we will report back with our findings! In the mean time, if you have tried the Elipse, let us know what you thought.
Apollo Extreme Starter Kit
The last kit I tried from Apollo was the Extreme Starter Kit. It included 2 Apollo Extreme batteries, five cartomizers, a USB charger, a wall adapter, a bonus car charger, and an instruction manual. This was my favorite Apollo e-cig kit by far. It is an attractive e-cig with a blue tip. I liked that the kit included every possible charger option: USB, wall adapter, and car charger. That means you can really take it anywhere and never worry about the hassle of a dead battery. The vapor was good, the draw was easy, and the throat hit on this unit was decent. I tried it with cherry flavor, which usually negatively impacts the throat hit and vapor, but it still performed well. Overall, this unit was very impressive. The Extreme kit gives you a satisfying throat hit that will meet the needs of most smokers. The amount of vapor is more than what you get in the smoke equivalent from a cigarette so it’s definitely great. This is a great starter e-cig with everything you need included.
Apollo’s flavors are the main aspect of the company that I have trouble with. They sell the common five flavors – tobacco, menthol, coffee, cherry, and vanilla – in their prefilled cartomizers. However, they also offer 14 additional flavors by the bottle which you can use to fill their empty cartomizers. The unfortunate thing is that these additional flavors are fantastic but they aren’t available in their prefilled cartridges. Not everyone wants to fill their own cartridges so they may never have the chance to try Apollo’s stronger e-liquids. We hope that Apollo will soon sell all of their flavors in pre-filled cartomizers. The other big complaint I have is with the carrying case. It just really isn’t a very attractive design and we would like to see Apollo release a new version that is much sleeker to match their beautiful e-cig products.
As a brand, Apollo is taking good steps. The e-cigs give you decent vapor production and utilize new technology to take vaping forward with each new product. Overall, I think Apollo is a good choice if you want to try a new e-cig brand. The vapor production is full and satisfying and the standard flavors were pretty comparable to others on the market while their bottles of e-liquid were better than average. Give Apollo and try and let us know what you think!
