Apollo Nano Micro Kit Review
Based on how small it is, it’s an amazing device for stealth vaping.
This kit raised some eyebrows for us because it was advertised as a small (very small!) temperature control mod that came with everything you needed to get started.
Plus, it was designed to pack in a lot of power for something so small – and is even offered at a price that’s quite affordable.
So naturally, we were pumped to give it a go – and in this review, we’re going to tell you what you need to know if you’re thinking about picking one up.
Information! Please be informed that Apollo have discontinued selling this particular kit, the mod on it’s own however will become available in a new packaging within the next few weeks.
Pros and Cons
Here are the basic pros and cons that we discovered about the Nano Micro over the course of our research…
- It seems well made and well-put-together
- The menu was easy to navigate
- It produced plenty of flavour and vapour
- Though it’s small, it performs as well as a large-sized box mod
- It still packs in plenty of power for a small device
- Can be used in 3 different modes (temp control, wattage, and bypass mode)
- The settings reset when you navigate the menu, which is a bit of a pain
- It didn’t ship with O-ring seals
- No pass-through charging feature

What’s in the starter kit?
This starter kit ships with the Nano Temp Control Mod (complete with a built-in 1200mAh battery), a 1.8ml sub-ohm tank, an extra Pyrex Glass tube, an extra 0.6 ohm coil (for power mode only), a Micro-USB charging cable, and an instruction manual.[print_responsive_slider_plus_lightbox id=”49″]
The Nano Micro truly is a tiny vaporizer. Even the box is small. At first, we doubted that it could even contain an entire kit – but it did! The packaging looked impressive, and everything was laid out quite nicely.
The manual was really cool. It told us everything we needed to know, and showed us how to fill and operate the device.
We really were surprised by the size of the Nano Micro. It felt and looked like someone took a full-sized mod and just shrank it down – which was quite different, but not in a negative way.
Our first impression of the mod was that it was ‘cute’. But we were also doubtful of whether or not it could do everything that a full-sized mod can do. But it wasn’t very long before the Nano really put these types of fears to rest.
The main difference between this device and a larger device is in the battery size. Obviously, as a smaller device, it can’t hold as large a battery as a larger mod can – but this is really where the differences end.
We took a closer look at the tank first. It ships with a Nano Tank, which is small, lovely looking, and basic. The coil on the inside takes up a lot of space, leaving the capacity size a bit on a small side – but also well within the TPD regulations, which is a good thing.
The drip tip is plastic and cone-shaped. But it pops out and is replaceable – which was nice.
The tank sports a top-fill design, which works well. Opening it up and taking it apart/changing the atomizer was pretty easy. We also liked that it came with a spare Pyrex Glass tube.
We actually gave this vape a try during a trip, which took about a week – and ended up really loving it. It was small enough to take up a minimal amount of room, but it performed so well that it is now one of our favorite box mods – surprisingly enough, for the small size!
Filling the tank was very easy. You simply top-fill along the side, being careful not to get it in the middle – and you’re good to go!
The replacement coil that it ships with is a 0.6ohm coil that can be used with wattages of up to 40 watts – which is very good!
The display on the mod is small (obviously!), but it’s surprisingly bright. The buttons are very lovely, and feel good to the touch. The Micro USB charge port is located on the base of the mod. Some people don’t like this, but since it’s not a pass-through charging device, we couldn’t really fault it.
The display does a great job of displaying the information that you need, including the mode, settings, and Ohms of resistance. The display is very, very bright… and can be seen even at the brightest point in the day.
The battery that comes inside of the device is rated at 1200mAh, which is quite powerful for something so small in size.
There are three different modes to this device… temperature control mode, wattage mode, and bypass mode. Bypass mode basically allows you to bypass everything in the mod, and just run straight off of the power of the battery, like a mechanical mod would do.
One downside to the device is the fact that whenever you run through the menu, even if you don’t change anything, the settings will all revert back to the default. This will require you to re-set them, which is a bit of a pain. Personally, we like to use the device on wattage mode, set to 35 watts, when it has a 0.6ohm coil installed in it.
The menu was, honestly, surprisingly intuitive. Even though there are only a couple of buttons that you can use to control it, it was surprisingly easy to navigate.
- Super compact design
- 50W of power
- Temperature control setting
- Built-in battery
- Contains both a variable wattage and a full power bypass mode
- 1.8ml capacity tank
- Integrated LED Display
- USB charging through a micro USB charging port
- Comes with an extra 0.6 ohm coil (for power mode only)
- Also ships with an extra Pyrex Glass tube
- Compatible with atomizers rated as low as 0.2 ohms
- Lots of built-in safety features
What did we think of the Apollo Nano Micro Kit?
Our vape test was performed on wattage mode, with the watts set to 35 watts, with standard vaping on a 0.6ohm coil.
There was certainly no shortage of vapour, and the flavour was really nice. We’ve actually found that the small size really makes it easy to carry around in whatever pocket you’re most comfortable with, and this adds to the value of the product, in our opinion.
We’ve even put it in our back pocket and sat down on it – without doing a bit of harm or damage.
It’s really a perfect box mod. We can’t say much about it in a negative sense.
It’s well made, looks great, and everything about it just screams quality.
If you’re looking for an awesome box mod that can deliver big things in a small package, then you should definitely take a look at the Apollo Nano Micro Kit from Apollo next time you’re in the market for a quality temperature control mod.
Appearance and Feel
This device is VERY small. So small that we weren’t sure if it was even going to be able to do everything that the company claimed.
Well, we were proven wrong – because it performs beautifully!
It feels good in-hand too, and obviously would make a perfect device for someone who doesn’t want to carry around a large, bulky box mod.
There was a variable airflow setting on the base of the tank. This allowed us to set the airflow where we wanted it, with a lot of room for adjustment – which was awesome.
This device is made mostly from plastic, metal, and glass. We loved how durable it felt, and have no doubt that the Nano would last a long, long time without breaking down.
Ease of Use
The menu and the settings, while relatively complex in choice of options, were surprisingly simple to use and navigate. Even a novice could learn to use the Nano without much trouble – which is definitely an upside.
Being so small, it’s an amazing device for stealth vaping. It also vapes extremely well, and the menu navigation is very intuitive.
One downside to this device was that it couldn’t pass-through charge, which was a bit of a shame. Also, it was a bit of a pain to have to reset the settings whenever we scrolled through the different menus.
