Apollo V-Tube 4 Intro
We do a full review on the recently released V-Tube V4.0 by Apollo E-Cigs.
The V-tube 4.0 is a regulated tube mod capable of firing up to 50W. It also has the capability of being able to fire down to a resistance of 0.2ohm, which makes it a perfect combo for use with a sub ohm tank. I think the V-Tube 4 fills an important gap in the market. There are many vapers looking for a tube shaped device not wanting to use a mechanical mod for use with their sub ohm tanks. Sub ohm tanks have become insanely popular this year and not all people like the aesthetics of a box mod.
If this is the case for you then voila the V-Tube 4 is the perfect device for you!

I have to say that I love the looks of this device. It looks like a high class mod and its stainless steel finish is timeless. The screen is a good size and reads very well and buttons are worked effortlessly into the mod.
For those who aren’t interested in the looks of a box mod, then this is a fantastic alternative device that will be able to do the same things a box does, but with different aesthetics.
The V-tube 4 is quite a heavy little tube mod, but the heaviness makes it feel like a really high quality vape mod. You can tell when you hold this mod for the first time that it oozes quality. This doesn’t feel like a device that will break if you drop it a few times. The fire button clicks nicely and so do both the plus and minus buttons.
0.2ohm Resistance & 50Ws of Power
I haven’t come across many tube mods that can fire up to 50W and have a low minimum resistance of 0.2ohm. There is definitely a gap in the market here and the Apollo V-Tube 4 definitely fills that gap and does it exceedingly well.
Spring Loaded 510 Pin & Ego Threading
The V-Tube 4 features a copper spring loaded pin, so you won’t have any issues with any tank you put on this mod. We tried a few different sub ohm tanks on this and they all worked without issues.
The V-Tube 4 comes also has an ego threading, so the device can either be used with 510s or your standard ego threaded clearomizers.
Kit Comes with Great Accessories
If you get the V-tube 4 as part of the kit, you get a host of accessories and save a load of money at the same time. If you get the kit, you’ll get a Panasonic 18650 battery, an 18650 battery charging port, a 30ml bottle of delicious Fa-Q e-juice (Miss Samoa and Funky Monkey are two of our favorite e-juices) or Lindbergh E-Juice and a carry case. For $139 (£119) I think this is a really good deal. You also get the Phazer sub ohm tank, which we just reviewed and liked. The Phazer and the V-tube make a great combination!
FREE shipping for US & UK customers, 30 day Money Back Guarantee, and a Limited Lifetime Warranty
If you get the kit you get free shipping from either the UK or US site as well as a handy 30 day money back guarantee, should this not be the device for you. Alongside this you also get a limited lifetime warranty on the device (check what the warranty covers, as I am unsure what the warranty entails).
I think these warranties and free shipping add further value to an already impressive mod.
The V-Tube is a regulated mod and comes with several integral safety features: Short circuit protection, low voltage protection and battery venting holes.
Wattage Scroll on the Screen
You can adjust the wattage in 0.1W increments which is great and I like that. However, the scrolling when going from 6 to 50W takes quite a long time and I think the accelerator could be a bit quicker. Or it would be good if you could carry on going from 50W to 6W with one click. As it is now, you can go up and down, but not back around, which is slightly cumbersome, but by no means a deal breaker.
This device does feature an 18650 battery and we were impressed that it is only 23mm in width. However, I think the height/length of the device could be shortened a tiny bit. Again it’s nothing major and I think it is the ego adapter that makes it slightly longer. I’d like to see the next V-tube a few cm shorter!
I think Apollo have found a gap in the market here and have filled it perfectly with this great looking, solid regulated tube mod. With all the new sub ohm tanks coming onto the market the regulated tube mods haven’t been able to fire low enough or didn’t have enough wattage. The V-Tube 4 has both and can handle most sub ohm tanks and high quality clearomizers without any issues. There really isn’t anything to complain about with this high quality device and we are big fans of it.
If you don’t like box mods and want something that has the tube mod aesthetics but is regulated and can fire down to 0.2ohm then this is the mod for you!
