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 just wanted a Gulfman!

Things are never that straightforward though. I originally planned on getting the Casio G-9100-1ER. This is best described as the entry level Gulfman, primarily because it lacks solar power and atomic timekeeping. This aside, its a perfect daily wearer without a budget busting price tag.

I was pretty much set on this model until I saw the GW-9110-1ER.
