Thinking of getting a vape mod that is a great starter which you won’t have to throw away to upgrade anytime soon? The Apollo VTube 5.0 with TC Tube Mod could be a great choice. Designed to have an elegant and sophisticated appeal, this is one the best tube mods that you will come across.

Apollo VTube 5 Tube Mod – Ideal for Both Novices and Enthusiasts

Apollo gives an uncommon quality to the vape mods it produces: they suit the needs of both new vapers and old vaping hands. For beginners, the unit offers a complete setup for what they will need to get their vaping experience going. The kit even includes e-liquid, so you don’t have to go and find your own.

Also, newbies will be happy to know that they will not have to look through a confusing user manual to trying to put the different pieces of the mod together. The Apollo VTube 5.0 with TC Tube Mod requires minimal assembly, and no tools. In just a couple of minutes, you should be able to get your first taste of vaping.

For the avid users, there are some features VTube has to offer that they will find interesting. The customizability is an aspect that is worth mentioning. Adept users are very specific about the vaping experiences that they would like, and so having an adjustable vaping kit is a great plus. The Apollo VTube 5.0 with TC Tube Mod offers that and much more.

Extreme Customization

An additional variable that the vapers can play around with is the temperature control mode. This can be done with the help of two buttons lower down the tube. The display shows the user their current output, and can display a battery gauge. While it takes a couple of days of heavy use for that to get very accurate, it doesn’t differ from the actual state of the battery; so even then, you’re not caught by surprise.

Temperature control gives you so much room for customization that it has become pretty much a standard for every new vape mod. If you like to vape at insanely low resistances, the Apollo has got you covered.

A Hip Design

Typically, you will also want a product that looks great and works even better. The design of the VTube is quite unique and peculiar in a good way. The sleek stainless steel brushed-metal finish not only gives the vape mod a finish that is not only highly durable but also very attractive. After all, shiny things do attract a lot of attention.

Another great thing about the VTube vape mod is that it has a sizeable LCD display. There are quite a number of reasons why this is a great addition to the product. For instance, with the great variation in wattage and temperature, you will need feedback to know at the wattage and resistance the atomizers can fire at their highest levels. The display will also show the charge level of the battery which is a great addition.

Operating and Vaping the Apollo VTube 5

For the time that we spent with the Apollo VTube 5.0 with TC Tube Mod, we can say that it is a neat product, well-built and of very high quality.

Even though the package might not be shiny with many interesting twists, it would be safe to say that the kit is very well-packaged. Plenty of work has gone into the design and ensuring that the product gets to you safe. Getting the kit out is no struggle either. It is relatively simple.

Right out of the package, the main vape mode is quite easy to put together. Since I’m an experienced vaper, it took me under 5 minutes to have everything set up and ready to give the mod my first try. I found it pretty easy.

The most interesting part is that while I have been able to use mods that fire at very low resistance, this is the first one that I have come across can fire from as low as 0.2 ohms. However, I have to warn you the differences might be very significant, so it is important to take the increments one at a time especially if this is your first time using the Apollo VTube 5.0 with TC Tube Mod.

I found that at about 20 watts, I’m able to get the best clouds and flavors that are to my liking. The same setting might not work for everyone so you can try to see what works best for you. Did I mention that you also get a beautiful carry case? You not only vape in style but you also get to carry your mod around in style.

But not everything is rosy.

There are a couple of factors that might pose a slight challenge. The first is the weight of the product. Unlike most mods, because of the nature of the materials that have been used in making the mod, it is slightly heavier. But, considering the quality of the mod, it is a small price to pay compared to what you will be able to enjoy.

The battery life is also very commendable. It easily makes it to the next day even with very heavy vaping. However, the battery life indicator is not very accurate at first, but as time passes and you use it more and more, the indicator becomes more reliable.

Build Quality

There is no doubt that the Apollo VTube 5.0 with TC Tube Mod is among the best quality tube mods you will come across on the market. Sure, it is a bit heavier than some other options, but that just goes to show the quality of the materials used in the build.

The tank is made of high-quality glass while the rest of the tube is made from stainless steel with a sleek, brushed metal finish. Typically, this means you not only get a good looking VTube, but a quality and highly-durable one as well.

Putting Apollo VTube 5.0 to the test

The performance of the Apollo VTube 5.0 with TC Tube Mod is superb, to say the least. Perhaps the most impressive part of this is its ability to produce great plumes of vapor even at only 50W and only 0.2 ohm resistance. Not many other VTubes can be able to boast of the same output at the same resistance. Keep in mind that this isn’t even the maximum setting!

The battery is also worth mentioning when it comes to the performance and LCD display. The long-life 18650 batteries that provide maximum battery life ensure that you have the best experience with no surprises around the corner when your battery drains. On the other hand, you have a very handy display. Not only does this show your current settings, but also the amount of charge left.

My way of understanding the significance of vaping came not only through the disruption of smoking but its effects on society as a whole. Now I bring people to vaping and bring vaping to people. I love using new gear, writing in-depth reviews and generally nerding out about vaping to like-minded people.
