The Apollo Vtube 3.0 is the latest incarnation of the ever popular Vtube (also known as the Lavatube or Lambo to you and me). As the version number indicates this is the third revision of the Apollo Vtube. The original Lavatube design was pretty much an overnight success – the first low cost variable voltage device meant vapers on a budget could experience the delights of Variable Voltage (VV) without spending a small fortune. I had one, still do. The product was let down by the plastic end caps, but overall a decent introduction to advanced PV’s and ground breaking to a certain extent.

With numerous complaints about the cheap feel, the v1.0 tube quickly got a face lift. A couple of years back Apollo commissioned a unique limited edition stainless steel Vtube. This would be known as the v2.0 and  while the previous example (v1.0) and the v2.0 had identical performance (they both utilised the same on-board electronics) significant external modifications such as a floating (spring loaded) centre pin, built-in ego cone threading, all metal end caps and a choice of chrome or stainless steel bodies added to a growing pedigree.

Honestly, you really cannot go wrong with an eGo e-cigarette, especially when it is teamed up with a solid clearomizer. I’ve reviewed a similar product before, but not this particular kit which comes from Panda ecigs, USA.

As most eGo starter kits are very similar, choosing the right one usually boils down to two things. Price and what you get by way of extras!

Over the last few months I have explored a number of electronic cigarettes (or personal vaporizers if you prefer), ranging from advanced models to the basic disposable. Today’s review product fills the gap between the two.

Down to basics.

So you have tried a disposable and liked it, however, you need something that will last a bit longer, can be refilled and recharged, but don’t want the hassle of an advanced model that requires a more hands on approach (just yet). Maybe you prefer a cigarette sized device? That makes perfect sense. Psychology, plays a part when quitting and anything that helps that process is a good thing.

This narrows down the field considerably and to be honest one of the best kits I’ve found so far hails from pandaecigs.com.

The Panda ecigs Evolve Kit is an entry level 3.7v PV squarely aimed at newcomers to the wonderful world of vaping. It contains everything required to really kick start a smoke free lifestyle.

The Apollo disposable electronic cigarette is not something I use on a regular basis as I have a fair amount of vaping kit that fulfils my personal needs (see other reviews). However, I’ve been meaning to review one for a while but never got around to it. So today, I’ll explain what these are all about.

If you are new to the world of electronic cigarettes and the vaping scene in general lets get down to basics. Most ecig users start out on something fairly basic. I know I did. 5 years ago, ecigs were extremely primitive and most, if not all, replicated a real cigarette in looks if not performance. Over the years, and thanks to the personal innovation of a number of ecig users, various “mods” started to appear. Chinese manufacturers quickly picked up on these and started mass producing more durable and longer lasting products.

You see the problem with the earliest ecigs was size. After all, these things were nigh on identical to a cigarette dimensionally, thus battery capacity and ultimately life was limited to say the least – a typical battery lasting anywhere between 30 mins to 2 hours (the latter, if lucky). In addition, they didn’t hold a decent charge after a few months, so a hefty battery arsenal was always needed.
