Apolloecigs kindly sent me their eGo Box Kit to review, so here goes. First, let's get this out of the way: it's shaped like a mod, but you'll find no variable voltage or wattage settings here. However, it doesn't make this device less interesting. With its 2000mAh power you can use it as a battery pack. I haven't seen it anywhere else, and that's why I actually asked for this one to be sent to me.
It came with each part in its own packaging, but this is how it fits into the navy blue velvety box that is also a part of this kit. E-liquid is not a part of the kit.
You vape much, but don't care about cloud chasing, APV-s and all that advanced vaping stuff. You use standard eGo or EVOD batteries and are a bit frustrated when you have to charge them every single day once or even twice. Then you are our kind of girl or guy and this is intended for you, especially if you spend much time out of your home.
Actually, I believe that with this kit offer, Apollo is filling a void that exists in the market. There is definitely a number of people needing just one thing that mid-size standard batteries couldn't give them and that is more battery capacity.
Everything else remains the same. All your 510/eGo threaded clearomizers will work here. Standard EVOD clearomizer that comes with this kit does its job well all the way.
For the purpose of this review I'm also using Kanger Protank 3 and Aspire Nautilus Mini.
Now, these two last clearomizers (with 1.8 ohm coils) do work with this battery, but they are more suited for variable voltage features this box doesn't have. After some vaping this voltage goes down towards 3.3V which simply isn't enough. You'd need to keep the voltage somewhere around 3.8V if you want a decent throat hit.
Dimensions of this battery are almost identical to that of Smok Xpro m45 also reviewed here recently, only that Apollo eGo Box is of a more rounded shape. Its weight feels practically twice less than SmokXPro which isn't suprising, eGo Box doesn't host that much wattage and variability setting features. However, it has enough capacity to sustain anywhere from 1.5 to 3 days of vaping, depending on how much you vape, of course.
This is where the fun begins. Having a battery with high capacity, Apollo decided to maximize its usability: this device has a passthrough feature so you don't need to drain its power while sitting at your computer. Just plug it in and vape. Another useful addition I haven't encountered in anything reviewed here so far is a battery pack feature.
So, you can even use it to charge a USB device, be it another battery or cellphone, while on the go.
Now if there's anything that I might want to change here that's the missing power indicator. I'd love to know how much power I have left here, at least roughly. So, this battery that can also charge other USB device needs at least some kind of led light info for the user to assess how much power there is left. Because now, I still don't know when it will be off, until it's off. We need to see more (LED) light here.
This is an excellent kit for anyone who doesn't want to bother with charging his or her standard batteries every single day. I have already reviewed Apollo batteries like eGo Superior and Apollo eGo VV. Both lasted for 8 months or more.
Update 2018 Apolloecigs do not carry this kit anymore. Kits that offer similar vaping experience:
