Apollo E-Cig Review
The Apollo Electronic Cigarette comes in a very sleek and sophisticated package. If I were to walk down an aisle of e-cigs and see the Apollo on a shelf I would definitely pick it up and check it out. The packaging of the actual contents of the box are simply laid out in separate packages within the box, located on a black velvet background, which matches the sleek style of the outside of the package. It comes with two chargers (one for the wall, and one that can be plugged in to your computer’s USB drive), two batteries (one automatic, and one manual), as well as five cartomizers. As a college student, I found the USB charger handy, as I could charge the Apollo battery directly in class so it would be ready when I stepped out of the building. The wall charger plugs into a charging pack shaped like an actual pack of cigarettes which was very appealing. By simply screwing the battery into this pack, you are able to view the strength of the battery on a small screen on the front of the charge pack. Also useful, was the manual included, which gave start-up information, and instructions on using the product. It also provided contact information for further questions about the product.
The Apollo’s automatic battery left me very satisfied. From the first puff I took, an abundant amount of vapor was released. I was afraid that I would be able to blatantly tell that I was smoking something other than a real cigarette at first, but this product left me very satisfied with the vapor amounts, and “throaty” feeling that a real cigarette leaves. The battery was sensitive, a normal draw produced a satisfying amount of vapor. My only problem with the battery was that it felt a little heavy which caused me to hold it awkwardly. I assume that this is normal for a first timer like me, though. The battery life lasted for around 3-5 hours, although the first few days of use it seemed as if it stayed charged all day.
As mentioned before, the amount of vapor produced is very satisfying. It leaves that “throaty” sensation that you get from a real cigarette. I tried all flavors for the product including, tobacco, cherry, vanilla, menthol, and coffee. Personally, I am a menthol smoker, so I enjoyed the menthol cartomizers the best. Coffee was another favorite flavor of mine, as I found it to taste the closest to a real cigarette as any of the other flavors, including tobacco. There wasn’t much of an after taste for those two flavors, however, I found the cherry and vanilla to have a slightly chemical taste and after taste, and it was difficult to tell between them. Overall, there was plenty of vapor but sometimes a lack of distinct flavor.
Overall 4/5 (Not An Average)
As a first time e-cig user, I was very impressed with the Apollo. Aside from some room for improvement with their flavor, the appeal from the presentation, battery life and actual vapor produced left me very satisfied and would recommend this product to any one transitioning from actual cigarettes.
