What is a vape pen battery with 510 thread?
Vape battery 510 is usually pen shape and size designed to work with 510 thread cartridges for oil, e-liquid or concentrate. Those vapes carry from 250mAh to 1200mAh and more of power. These battery units are equipped with the industry-standard, universal 510 thread to be assembled with the same thread carts, tanks, and atomizers. Overall, we recommend this product as an economical option that you can buy for vacations or traveling in general. It’s a great option that provides decent temperature options and powerful hits with such a compact design. You can easily hide this pen in a small bag, in your pocket or purse while traveling.
What Does 510 Thread Mean?
If you think about it 510 almost sounds like 710 which is a popular term for “OIL” upside down. But the origin of the term 510 actually has nothing to do with 710, its just a coincidence. You might be asking yourself, “why was it named 510 thread?”. The term “510” was used for vape pen batteries and cartridges because most of the connectors are 5 MM in diameter and have 10 screw threads. This allows for a tight connection and one that will last a long time. 510 thread vape pens are among the best in the industry because of their ability to work with so many kinds of carts and batteries interchangeably.
If you’re looking for a vape pen battery that has a universal connector, the 510 thread is as close as it gets. Although 510 threads are incredibly popular and a standard in the engineering of most vape pens, there are some vape pen products that use proprietary connections that are still very reliable too.
For MODs and Box vaporizers
In some cases, like in mini MOD vapes, the battery and cartridge snap together using a magnet connector, but even these magnet adapters must contain some sort of thread to mount to vape cart, and most likely it is going to be a 510 thread.
For Typical Vape Pens
The standard connection type for vape pens and carts is typically a screw-on type which is exactly what 510 thread is. 510 thread connections can be seen in almost every vape pen now. It’s an industry standard that you will see across most of the vape pen batteries that have detachable carts.
In most cases, when you hear the term 510, it’s referring to the connection type used for a vape cartridge or a battery. Most vape pens consist of those two core parts, the battery, and the tank. There are many different types of batteries and cartridges that all serve different purposes but generally, they all work the same way. The battery is used to heat up the concentrate or oil inside of the cartridge by means of electric heating.
Different Types of 510 Threads
There are 2 different types of 510 thread connectors that you will see on most vape batteries on the market. Although both are using the same thread, the connector itself is slightly different.
Type-C Connector The most common type is the type-C which is now vastly used thread type in most 510 batteries and vaporizers. Type C connectors are usually flat, with thread connector embedded into the surface of your vape battery or MOD. When you screw your cartridge or tank down into the surface of your vape you're making more solid and reliable assembly.
eGo Connector Another type of thread is the eGo 510 connector. Ego type connector is similar to the standard type C but it has a different thread location around the side and is known as the 510 eGo thread. Both the eGo and type-C vape battery thread work great. We carry many vapes and cartridges that use 510 thread and will work with both: type-C and eGo connectors. However, if your battery, MOD or tank are designed for eGo thread only - we have a solution for that too. Check out the 510 to EGO Thread Adapter offered right on our web store.
510 Pen Battery Functions & Specs
Battery Capacity and Types
Just like most vape batteries, they are usually lithium-ion and rechargeable, typically with a USB charging cable. Some vape batteries are Alkaline or NiMh but those are usually mod batteries and they’re not very common. Depending on the battery’s capacity, some batteries can last longer than others. Battery capacity is measured in milliamp-hours and they range in size from 250mAh to 850 mAh in most cases.
Variable Voltage Functionality
Some batteries have a feature known as “variable voltage” which allows you to regulate the heating strength with a dial or with buttons on units that have an interface. Variable voltage vape pen batteries allow you to dial in the perfect temperature for specific types of concentrates which as a result provides a much better-tasting hit. We carry several vape batteries that have variable voltage which you can purchase directly from our web store.
Preheat Functionality for oils and concentrate atomizers
Aside from the battery voltage regulation, another great feature that some 510 vape batteries offer is a preheat functionality. The pre-heating vape pens are usually made for thick oils or wax atomizers that require low heat for better-tasting hits. We carry many vape pens and batteries that have a pre-heat feature which you can view on our web store.
Advantages of 510 Thread Vape Pens
If you’re looking for a 510 battery or complete vape pen (or both) that is universal and can easily be swapped out to work with other carts and batteries then 510 is definitely the way to go.
- Compatibility – The main advantage of having the industry-standard 510 thread battery is the fact it will work with all vape carts on the market, regardless of what are you vaping. If it is 510 cart – simply screw it in and vape away.
- Lightweight – 510 vapes are probably the lightest vaping devices out there. In comparing to full-size MOD vaporizers which might weight even 1 pound or more, the typical 510 vape weight just as much as typical AAA battery
- Portability - Small portable size of these vapes make them perfect for on-the-go lifestyle and travel.
- Ease of Use – simply screw-in your tank and press the button. It does not get simpler than that.
Here at Vape Honeystick, most of our products work with 510 thread and many of our customers ONLY buy 510 thread components because they want to know that they can use their parts interchangeable with what they already have. 510 is the new standard and is likely not going away any time soon. We strongly recommend 510 threads for all your vaping devices because they’re effective, long-lasting and of course the most versatile type of connection in the vape market.
