APOLLO PULSAR INTRO
Apollo have just brought out a sub ohm tank called the pulsar.
I have to admit that I was quite excited when I first heard that Apollo would be makign this tank. They’ve have produced a lot of quality products in the past so I had high expectations with this.
In an already flooded market, how will the Apollo Pulsar compete?

DESIGN & PERFORMANCE
The design of the Apollo Pulsar is uninspired to say the least, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. While it looks similar to many tanks, the build quality and performance is quite impressive.
Holding it, you will feel the quality and it has a substantial heft to it, adding to its premium feel.
Refilling is a cinch being top fill, and the capacity is a very welcome 4ml.
There is an airflow control ring at the bottom of the tank that works great, and there is juice control as well, further letting you customise the vape quality.
Flavour is top notch and the vapour production is more than what I expected from a new tank maker, and so far I haven’t experienced any leakage from the tank.
As tough as the tank feels in the hand, you should take care not to drop it since there is no extra glass included in the box, something I think Apollo should have included.
The Pulsar comes with one 1.0 ohm replacement coil and one 0.5 ohm coil already mounted in the tank.
The 1.0’s vape well, but not as good as the 0.5, which produces the best flavour in my opinion.
It’s really easy to change the coils, and you can only use proprietary coils which can only be purchased from Apollo. With a lot of tanks taking a number of coils from different manufacturers it’s worth pointing this one out.
Furthermore, there is no RBA option, another thing I think Apollo should have added.
- No Extra Glass – With no extra glass included, you’ll have to take extra care of your tank despite the solid build quality. After all, glass is glass.
- No RBA – With no RBA option, some vapers might pass on this one. But if you don’t mind buying proprietary coils from Apollo, this won’t be too much of an issue.
- Build Quality – A solid tank, the Apollo Pulsar is one of the better made tanks in the market today.
- Top Fill – Easy to fill, you won’t find yourself fiddling too much when refilling.
- Capacity – With a 4ml capacity, the Pulsar is one of the higher stock capacity tanks out there.
- Juice Flow Control – The addition of juice flow control is great, letting you further customise your vape.
- Coils – While the 1.0 ohm coil is good, the 0.5 ohm coil is even better, producing excellent flavour and vapour.
- Easily Replaceable Coils – Swapping out coils is easy, making it feel less of a chore.
- No Leaking – With no leaking issues, this is a testament to the great build quality and design of the Pulsar.
SHOULD YOU GET THE PULSAR?
From build quality to its awesome performance, it’s not hard to recommend the Apollo Pulsar.
It’s easy to use and maintain, produces good flavour and vapour production, so if you’re not concerned about it lacking a spare glass or RBA section there really is no reason not to like it.
If you’re looking for a great introduction to sub-ohm vaping, or just on the lookout for the next best thing that’s under the radar, the Apollo Pulsar may just be what you’re looking for.
