Apollo Ego Box Kit Review:
During our Apollo eGo Box Kit review, we reviewed an eGo kit that has the shape of a really small box mod. The box shape and the 2000mAh of the battery ensures more power and that the battery life will last much longer than eGo batteries.
The kit includes a Kanger EVOD glass clearomizer, a USB charging cable, an eGo Box battery and a storage case. It is specifically aimed at beginners who want to enter the vaping world using one of the most straightforward kits on the market with a very good battery performance.
The Ego Box Design
The Apollo eGo Box kit is, as described above, a box shaped kit. In terms of looks, it is really discreet as it fits in one’s hand. Not only is it aesthetically pleasing without being bulky at all, but also it manages to be really solid as well. The battery box is metal and not plastic, meaning that it is more durable than other similar alternatives. It is reliable, solid (it is made of brushed stainless steel) and still small and ergonomic at size. This means that you can easily carry it around and still you have a handy device that does not compromise in performance.
One area that could improve here is that the device does not have a power indicator. This means that there is no LED light indicator showing how much battery there is still left. You would have to roughly guess, in order to charge it before the battery dies. This is the one thing we didn’t like so much, during the Apollo eGo box kit review and we think it can be improved in the future.
The Apollo Ego Box Battery
The Apollo eGo comes with a built in 2000mAh battery plus a charger. The box mod shape contributes to the longevity of the battery. The device is much more powerful than other eGo e-cigs, as the latter offer in general power between 650mAh and 1100mAh. This means that you can have it out with you all day long vaping, without having to recharge. If you are a moderate or casual user, the battery can even last for 2-3 days.
The battery comes with a USB charging cable. Apart from the portability this offers, the company suggests that the device is compatible for charging your mobile phone or other small devices with a USB port. If you would like a standard wall adapter as well, then you have to purchase it separately from Apollo. Its standard adapter is suitable for all its kits.
Apollo Ego Box Features
The specific kit also offers a pass-through charging feature: while the battery is not removable, this is how it is supposed to be, as the box itself is a battery source. This means that while you are charging the cell by plugging it into a USB port, you can vape on the same time. There is light indicator showing to you when the battery gets fully charged. Generally, it will be fully charged in about 3-4 hours.
The Apollo eGo Box is better suited for eGos, but it also comes with a 510 connector. We think though that it is better using it with eGo type clearomizers, as this is what it is built for. You can use the 510 threaded tanks but it would not look as sleek as it is supposed to look. In case that you still want more vapour than the one provided by the EVOD clearomizer, we suggest the Aerotank Mini, the Aspire K1 and the Kanger EVOD clearomizers.
Another nice feature of the kit, that has to do with the safety, is a 10 second cut-off protection: this way the battery is protected from continuous firing, for example in a pocket, if something stimulates the button accidentally. This would mean that your battery would drain completely by burning up and firing for no reason. Also, if you press the button for a few seconds before inhaling, it will help the coil warm up so that you get a sufficient heat of vapour. The eGo box kit also offers a 3-click on/off operation, i.e. you have to click the power button three times in order to switch off or turn on your box mod.
The Kanger EVOD Clearomizer
The Apollo eGo Box comes with a Kanger EVOD style glass clearomizer. A clearomizer is a transparent cartomizer that is considered to be the evolution of cartomizers as it allows you to have more control of your vaping, as the see-through tank allows you to check when your e-liquid needs to be refilled. The specific kit does not come with an e-liquid, but Apollo offers a wide selection of different e-juices that you can purchase. The good quality of the clearomizer means that the construction is solid and durable.
The Apollo Ego mod is suitable for beginners, entering the world of vaping, who are after a good, solid performance for this category. As the kit does not deliver consistent voltage, the amount of the vapour will decrease. The impressive performance of this kit means that the battery can last around 2 days for a moderate user, while on the same time the kit offers a higher wattage compared to other eGos in the market.

This is an excellent starter kit priced at $22.95. You will have to hurry though, as this is a sale price, while the initial price is $49.95. You save more than 50% of the original price. Considering that you will only need to purchase the e-liquid separately and that this is a product made to last, due to its quality, performance and the reliability of the brand Apollo, this is a very good value for money for new users.
The Apollo Box Mod kit is an excellent choice for those on a budget who want a good starter kit. Its main features are the good built quality, the compact size and portability and a long lasting battery life before you need to recharge your battery. It also boasts an extended lifecycle, as even with frequent use, it can last around 8-12 months. It is aimed specifically for use with eGo devices and can be upgradeable with new clearomizers as well.
