510 Thread Battery FAQ's -
The term “510 Thread" or "5 10 Thread" was first coined by Joyetech, the original manufacturer of the eGo-T battery. This was one of the first 510 threaded vape pen batteries on the market and is still widely used today. It was named after it's ten 0.5 mm internal/external threading. 510 thread compatible internal/external threading is now widely featured on the majority of oil cartridges, e-cig juice tanks, atomizers, and other items that are now compatible with these vape pen batteries. Today, this 0.5 mm threading is standardized, but it doesn’t necessarily need to have ten threads to be considered 510 compatible.
A 510 thread vaporizer battery is a unique type of battery that is only compatible with 510 threaded atomizers and other attachments, which happens to be the vape industry standard for almost all atomizers and oil tanks on the market these days. The recent introduction to readily available oil cartridges has made these discreet 510 thread batteries a hot commodity!
A 510 thread vape is often used in reference to the entire device and all safely attached components, including the 510 thread atomizer. 510 thread battery refers specifically to the power source. Retail 510 thread oil cartridges and vape tanks will generally come pre-filled with nicotine, cannabis, CBD and essential oils. There are also refillable and reusable atomizers and oil cartridges available that can be filled with your own desired blend.
Different types of 510 thread vape batteries:
Originally, 510 Thread batteries were manufactured with heavier materials, and mainly all pen-shaped steel cylinders, which is still arguably the most popular vape pen style today. But new technology and the need for increased power and decreased weight caused the 510 thread battery industry to rapidly evolve. 510 thread batteries now take on a variety of styles and shapes, such as vape pens, vape keychain mods, heavy vape mods, and lightweight box shaped vape batteries.
eGo Style 510 thread batteries – These style of batteries were one of the first devices used in conjunction with todays ever popular vape cartridge tanks. They are usually dual-threaded to accommodate classic eGo/EVOD/Vision style 510 threaded atomizers. Mostly all eGo/EVOD/Vision batteries have utilize a power button, some models include LED indicator lights when the button is activated. Charging of the batteries vary by device. Generally charging is achieved by using a compatible 510 threaded USB charging unit. Some batteries may feature a built-in micro USB charging port, some require a top screw on USB charger which makes a very reliable and solid connection.
Classic Pen Style Batteries – This was the original upgrade in 510 batteries. The new 510 thread batteries are a much slimmer and lightweight pen battery. They were intended to be about the same diameter as the standardized oil cartridge. Some newer model 510 batteries are draw activated, which means you don’t have to push a button to vape. These auto-draw pens are easy to operate, but are not known for their power. They are usually associated with disposable vape pens The majority of today's favorite 510 thread pen batteries utilize buttons to operate, and often have LED indicator lights. Upgraded models have built in pre-heat functions that will prep whatever medium that is being used for a smoother taste and better draw! Most have variable voltage settings that can be changed via a few clicks of the power button or a twist dial.
Small Box 510 Thread Batteries – Another new style of 510 thread battery looks similar to the larger mod box batteries, but are usually much smaller, lighter and more compact for discretion. They have the standard 510 threads and sometimes utilize strong magnetic adapters to easily connect your cartridge or other atomizing device. Some of these 510 thread batteries are able to be personalized to the users interests. These 510 vape batteries are customer favorites and well worth giving a try!
Keychain Style 510 Thread Batteries – Keychain style 510 thread batteries are designed for ultimate discretion. These small 510 thread batteries introduce a new level of subtlety to your vaping experience. Many of these keychain style 510 batteries look just like your standard everyday key fob for a car. Hang it on your keychain and its a secret to everyone but you! Many also feature a concealed spring loaded trigger that pops up your desired oil cartridge just like some car key fobs would flip out its key! They are small, yet very powerful 510 thread batteries. These mostly have a charging port that accepts the desirable micro USB charger.
E-pipe style Batteries – These 510 thread batteries resemble a tobacco pipe. Normally, the manufacturer tries to keep the look and style of the 510 thread pipe battery very classy. Some vape enthusiasts like this style because the vaping action emulates the experience of “holding a bowl”. Many pipe style 510 thread batteries use strong magnetic adapters that can easily swap between oil cartridges if desired.
Printed/Etched Style Pen Batteries - This 510 thread battery style has all of the same basic components as any standard 510 thread pen battery. However, graphics are added to the pen body via a printing or etching processes. Over the printed graphics, the pen batteries normally have special coating that resists against skin oils that could cause the graphics to wear prematurely. When batteries are etched, the graphics are engraved in the body of the battery and will usually last for the life of the battery.

Safety Tips - 510 Thread Batteries w/ Atomizers or Oil Cartridges:
Combining the use of a 510 thread battery with an atomizer or oil cartridge has grown in popularity. Before connecting any new device to the 510 thread battery, you need to know the recommended voltage needs of the attachment and if it is compatible with your 510 thread battery. When starting any new cartridge, start on the lowest voltage setting and slowly increase until you find your ideal setting.
Pro Tip - Be sure to note your ideal setting for future reference!
Some older oil cartridges may utilize silica wicks. With these, many consumers found a variable voltage battery on its lowest setting (2.5 to 3.0 volts) works best to prevent "dry hits" or a burnt taste. Use caution with any cartridge or atomizer and only buy from a reputable manufacturer.
Newer versions of oil cartridges, like the standard CCELL (Ceramic Coil) cartridges use more advanced safety features, but often need more voltage current to conduct the wicking properly to deliver a consistent draw. These are best suited for use with 510 Thread Batteries that operate around the 3.3 to 3.7 volt range. Some users would argue that higher voltage settings are perfectly acceptable as well. However, the average safety limit on most CCELL atomizers is around 3.8 volts. I would not recommend surpassing this limit! Once again, please use caution and buy these atomizers from a reputable manufacturer.
Some thick oil and wax 510 thread atomizers now use ceramic coil systems which require more voltage to achieve the desired results. These can be pretty easy to master and user reviews state these are fantastic companions for our batteries! Start with a lower voltage, around 2 to 3 volts, if possible, to preheat or warm the contents. Standard operation is between 3.3 and 3.7 volts, any higher and you risk burning the contents. Battery Capacity - Every 510 Thread Battery has a designated battery capacity. This represents the overall battery life in milliamp hours, or mAh. The higher the mAh, the longer the battery is rated to last.
