Apollo NANO Micro Kit Intro

I love me a good miniature mod, like your V2 Trinity, COV Mini Volt or Vaporesso Target Mini. 40W max is pretty standard for these type of devices, so I’m impressed that Apollo managed to make a 50W mod that is so small! Not to mention it does temp control and has bypass mode.
Apollo isn’t a very well-known brand in the vape game, but they have actually been making e-cigarettes for years. Today we take a look at a stealthy vape setup that packs a lot of power, especially for its size. Let’s have a vape on the Apollo NANO Micro Kit and see what happens…

Notable Remarks

I’m holding the Apollo NANO Micro in my hand right now and honestly, it’s so lightweight and tiny that it feels like a toy. The tank doesn’t have the same feel as the Apollo Pulsar tank that I recently reviewed. It feels much cheaper, so I’m hoping the mod will be the highlight of this kit…

The Apollo NANO Micro mod not only does temp control for SS, Ni and Ti, but it has custom TCR and bypass mode which gives you 50W of raw power. It even has a little LED screen on the side. The NANO Micro has a curved design making it both ergonomic and stylish…

Performance

First let’s talk about the performance of the Apollo NANO Micro tank, and next we will get to the mod. The tank holds 1.8mL of juice, which is a light snack for the sub ohm vaper. With .6 ohm coils, I’m getting decent flavor and clouds. The tank seems wonky, but the actual vape ain’t bad.

Filling the Apollo NANO Micro wasn’t like the Apollo Pulsar. The coil head threaded itself onto the top cap and when I went to fill the juice, everything leaked out of the bottom. I’m not sold on this tank, not to mention it doesn’t even come with the right type of coils to use in temp mode.

Oh yeah and with the included sub ohm coils, you are going to be refilling that thing quite a bit.

The actual machining of the tank is just not that good. The threads are poor, and the airflow adjustment is extremely stiff and hard to grab without unscrewing the whole tank. I would not buy this kit for the tank, in fact I would probably end up using my own atomizer on the device.

I wasn’t impressed with the Apollo NANO Micro tank, at all. I feel like it was a step backwards from their Pulsar sub ohm tank. I hope the mod delivers. Let’s have a vape and find out…

Although I did say this mod feels like a toy, it is putting out some heat. The power output I am getting so far seems to be pretty accurate. I’m not sure if it is putting out a true 50 watts, but it seems to be pretty close. It’s definitely putting out more power than all of my mini mods at 40W.

The temp control also seems to be working fine. It’s not a DNA device, but it does the job. I’m using it with a .4 ohm SS316 build in the Aromamizer RDTA, and the Apollo NANO Micro is doing a great job maintaining a consistent vape at my set temperature.

I also love the fact that the NANO Micro has bypass mode. Sometimes you want to just vape, without being bothered with ohms, volts and watts. Bypass mode gives you a mechanical mod experience, with added safety features. This is the smallest mod I’ve seen with this function.

Likes

  • Extremely small and lightweight
  • Bypass/Temp mode
  • Fires up to 50W

Dislikes

  • Feels like a toy
  • Poor machining on NANO Micro tank
  • NANO Micro tank needs to be refilled constantly
  • Airflow control on NANO Micro tank is stiff
  • Top-fill can get messy
  • Lesser-known brand

Verdict

Unfortunately the Apollo NANO Micro only comes as a kit. Considering that it comes with a tank, the price isn’t bad. I highly recommend upgrading the tank eventually. The mod itself is dope, it does 50W, which is rare for a mod of its stature. It also does temp control and bypass mode.

The 1200mAh battery isn’t going to get you through a full day of vaping, but this kit is more for on-the-go use, not as your main vape. However, I could see this being a good first setup for a newbie. The actual vape quality on the tank isn’t bad, it’s just not very convenient to use.

Overall, the Apollo NANO Micro kit is perfect for on-the-go vapers who want a stealthy mod with lots of features. The mini sub ohm tank puts out decent flavor and clouds, too. Recommended to stealth vapers, or people who just want a powerful sub ohm vape in the palm of their hand.

    Best battery/box to use in conjunction with the Innokin isub Apex tank ?

    • Dave @ Vaping 360

      Check out the Innokin MVP V4, those things are solid and reliable. The iStick Pico is also another good option for that tank.
