It is not for nonsmokers or women who are pregnant or breast-feeding, or persons with or at risk of heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, or taking medicine for depression or asthma, etc. Apollo is not and should not be used as a smoking-cessation device.

How does the Apollo E-Cigarette work? [top]
Apollo E-Cigarette consists of a rechargeable battery and a cartomizer or an atomizer and a replaceable cartridge containing water, propylene glycol, nicotine and flavoring that emulates tobacco cigarettes. When you inhale through the mouthpiece (cartridge), the microchip in the e-cigarette will detect the airflow and activate the atomizer which heats up the fluid in the cartridge and releases smoke-alike vapor. We also have manual batteries that can be activated by pressing the button on it.
Warning: The liquid that is vaporized by electronic cigarettes is mainly composed of propylene glycol to produce vapor, a chemical that is used in many applications, from toothpaste to vitamins. However, some users may be allergic to propylene glycol. If you experience any rare allergic reactions such as a severely sore throat or difficulty breathing, please stop use it immediately and contact your doctor.
