First Look: Apollo NEO Endeavor
It’s our First Look at our first product from new review product supplier Apollo. It’s the NEO Endeavor, one of Apollo’s newest devices and the latest addition to their line of Endeavor products.
Based in Livermore, California, with offices in the UK, Apollo makes hardware and ejuice. They seek to be “a force for good, championing the cause of e-cigarettes and e-liquids worldwide.” Their goal is “to provide our customers with products and services that deliver the best possible vaping experience.”
The NEO Endeavor is a pen style device targeted at beginning and intermediate vapers. The kit comes with the 650 mAh NEO Endeavor battery. Charge the battery via the micro USB port on the bottom of the battery using the included charging cable. The battery turns on and off with five clicks of the fire button.
There’s an LED on the battery. It will flash white when you turn it on or off and when you fire the device. When the light goes red the battery is between 1 – 25 percent charged. When it starts flashing, that’s an indication that the battery will soon need to be recharged. While charging the light will glow red and turn blue when it’s fully charged.
Apollo also includes a NEO sub-ohm tank in the kit, with two 0.5 ohm coils, one installed. The NEO tank has a capacity of 2.0 ml. It’s a bottom filler. Unscrew the tank from the battery and then unscrew the base of the coil. To change the coil, simply unscrew it from the base of the tank. When using a new coil be sure to prime it by placing a few drops of ejuice onto the cotton visible through the ejuice flow ports.
Turn the tank upside to fill it. Place the tip of your dripper or ejuice bottle into the tank and fill. Be careful not to get ejuice into the center tube. Then reattach base of the tank and screw the tank onto the battery. When using a new coil, allow it to soak for a few minutes before vaping. The tank has non-adjustable airflow, three airflow ports at the base of the coil.
And that ‘s pretty much all there is to preparing the Apollo NEO Endeavor for vaping. No wattage or temperature or even airflow adjustment to monkey with. Just make sure the tank is full and the coil is saturated, then hit the fire button and start vaping.
I filled the NEO Endeavor with Snickerdoodle Cookie ejuice from Apollo’s SNCK line, allowed the coil to soak for a few minutes and gave it a first vape.
Vapor production was decent, actually somewhat better than I had expected. And the flavor was full-bodied. The draw was on the airy side. And the drip tip is a little narrower than what I’m accustomed to. Overall, a very favorable result from this first vape. I think that someone just beginning to vape would be quite satisfied with the Apollo NEO Endeavor Kit. And thanks to its size and ease of use, it would make a decent back up device for just about any vaper.
I’ll be using the Apollo NEO Endeavor extensively over the next few weeks and will then post a full, in-depth review. To make sure you don’t miss that post, follow Seven Report on Twitter and Facebook.

Thanks again to Apollo for supplying the NEO Endeavor, along with several other products that we’ll be getting to very soon.
