Apollo Luminous EVOD Battery Review

Cloud Nine Reviews the Apollo Luminous EVOD


Several years ago, I tested the Luminous EVOD Battery which I paired with a very cool Kanger ProTank 2 Mini Clearomizer .

The Apollo Luminous EVOD was, in its day, a solid and cleverly styled eGo ecig battery that boasts a flat, luminous activation button. Unlike a traditional e-cigarette, it had a wider, larger battery that uses a clear tank to hold e-liquids you add yourself.

My Apollo EVOD battery had a powerful 900 mAh, which was new for the time. It was the first 900 mAh battery I tested. I got 800 – 1000 puffs of voluminous vapor before I had to re-charge it.

I never experienced so much vapor, and this 3.3 – 4.2 volt eGo accommodated a wide range of resistance coils – from a low (hotter burning) 1.7ohms to a higher (cooler burning) 3.0ohms.

Features of the Apollo Luminous EVOD Battery

As mentioned above, the Luminous EVOD gave you 800 – 1000 puffs of thick vapor before you had to re-charge it. The name “Luminous” was, however, a bit deceiving.  Although the battery was a lovely, brushed metal, and it came in 8 cool colors, it was not really “luminous”, meaning you couldn't light your way in a dark room, or find it glowing at the bottom of your purse.

Some Notes on the Activation Button

The activation button did illuminate when you pressed it. The best feature of this battery’s activation button was that it was flat to the battery, so it didn't accidentally turn on in your pocket.

The EVOD was one of the first ego vapes to have an automatic shut off if you didn't use it for a few minutes. Of course, you could shut it off manually as well. The battery activation button is always a good feature on any vape if you have, especially if you are around children. It's also handy if you tend to be a vape-a-holic. Vaping is so pleasurable, that sometimes putting your EVOD down is not enough to remind you to take a break.

One downside to this eGo system was that it did not come with a charger. I had to call Apollo to find out if I had one at home that would be compatible. I learned that you’ll need a wall charger with an output of 5volts/1amp and a USP charger with an output of 4.2 and 420 MA. Don't ever use anything other than the specified volts and amps.

Regarding tanks, Apollo has a limited selection of tanks on their website.

As far as eGo’s go – the Apollo Luminous EVOD had my recommendation because of it’s Clearomizer adaptability, battery life and recessed activation button. Unfortunately, Apollo no longer offers this device.
