Hardware Review: Ohm Go Vaping Kit by Apollo Ecigs

Hardware Review: Ohm Go Vaping Kit by Apollo Ecigs

I’ve got another hardware review for you guys today. It’s another bit of kit that was sent along by Apollo Ecigs for me to try.
While yes, this is another starter kit, it’s a little more advanced and a little beefier than it’s brother the NEO Endeavor that I reviewed the other day.

The target audience for the “Ohm Go Vaping Kit” are those that have graduated from the small ego style vape pens and are looking for a little more clout, whilst still retaining ‘ease of use’ and the simplicity that comes with an all in one solution.

You can purchase the ApolloEcigs Ohm Go Vaping Kit here.

The Review

As I mentioned earlier, the “Ohm Go” kit is the bigger brother of the “NEO Endeavor”. It is a step up in every way. It is physically larger, has a larger capacity battery, a tank that holds a larger volume of juice, a higher amperage output, and has a larger airflow.

Despite being an upgrade in many ways, it is super simple to use, maintain, and operate.

Kudos are due to Apollo for keeping this device simple, and intuitive. From it’s standard 5 clicks on/5 clicks off, to it’s intelligent coil detection that boosts the battery according to which coil is installed. Super simple.

The Tank

The Portal tank features a 3ml fill capacity, top fillable, adjustable airflow, standard 510 threading, pyrex glass windows so that you can see your juice level, and switcheable coils that come in 3 different ohm ranges.

Filling

Filling the Portal tank is easy, the top section of the tank unscrews, revealing 3 kidney shaped holes to squirt your juice into, screw it back on and you’re done. You can also fill from the bottom if you wish, by doing the same with the lower section and filling in around the centre pole.

Coil installation

Coil installation is dead simple too, unscrewing the base, you’ll find that the coil then screws neatly into the base, sealing really well with a cushioning o-ring. (Dont forget to put a little juice on a new coil when replaceing, in order to prime it!)

Coils and coil life

This kit came with the 0.5 ohm proprietary coil already installed for the direct to lung users, and there is also a spare 1.0 ohm coil in the package for all of you mouth to lung fans! Apparently there is also a 0.3 ohm coil available if you’re after a hotter vape. Unfortunately this did not come with the package.

This 0.5 ohm coil is a vertical coil and what looks like two wires run in parallel.
They are made with Organic cotton, and Grade A1 Kanthal.

It’ll handle even the thickest of juices too, I’ve been running Max VG juice in it all week and haven’t experienced a dry hit yet.

Similarly, with thinner juices, there’s been no gurgling or flooding of the tank at all. Quite an achievement for bottom airflow tank!

The coils last a long time too, obviously it will depend on the juice that you use, but the fairly clean juice that Ive been running in it has not degraded the coils at all in the last two weeks. It is still as flavourful with a nice hit, as the very first day that I fired it up.

Airflow

The larger airflow in the Portal tank is great, it is not quite wide open, but airy enough for decent lung hits, which means even more vapour! It’s adjusted by twisting the airflow ring at the base around for unlimited options. This adjustment ring has a really nice feel to it also. Not too loose and not too tight, it has a feeling of smooth purpose rather than being an afterthought.

Flavour

The flavour here is not bad for a beginner tank. Granted, its not as intense as an RDA or one of the higher capacity tanks on the market today, but it does carry the flavour well for it’s single coil and lower battery capacity.

Drip tip

The drip tip is quite interesting, its a short male to male 510 connector with a glass outer piece that fits over the end with two o-rings. It’s very distinctive, and fits the look of the device really nicely. Being a standard 510 fitting means that you can switch it out with other devices also.

Battery

In keeping with the “simplicity” theme, Apollo have built this battery to be smart. Rather than leaving the user confused with different sized coils and providing wattage adjustment buttons, this battery conveniently adjusts depending on the coil that you use. Testing this, I can really tell the difference between using both coils.

Battery Life

Battery life is awesome on this device. The 1900mah battery keeps things going for most of the day. I’ve been getting through most of the day on a full charge and even more with the 1.0 ohm mouth to lung coil.

Charging

Charging is fast, going from empty to completely full in just under 2 hours. The charge port is conveniently located on the side also, and doesn’t get in the way when using it as a passthrough device.

When charging and not in full status, the button light shines red. and in green when it is fully charged.

Operation

Apart from the usual 5 click on/off operation, there’s not a lot else here, as far as the operation is concerned. Apollo really have done a great job making this intuitive and straight forward.

Pros:

* Feels good in hand, the device is covered with a nice feeling rubber finish.
* Great looking device.
* Decent vapour
* Great battery life
* Very easy to use.

Cons:

* Lacks a little in the flavour department.
* Proprietary coils

Conclusion

Apollo have knocked this one out of the park when it comes to beginner devices. The Ohm Go kit is elegent, feels great in the hand, is simple to use and puts out a decent cloud.

I have absolutely zero issues with this setup during the few weeks that I’ve been testing it, it hasn’t failed me once. No dry hits, no leaking, no gurgling, and no unusual behaviour. It has been rock solid, which is exactly what you want in a starter kit.

As usual the machining is exemplary, parts fit perfectly, even the airflow ring has just the perfect amount of resistance that it just feels smooth.

A nice reliable starter kit, well done Apollo!
