The term “510 thread” refers to the thread design found on the battery, which tells you which type of cartridges will fit on the battery. 510 thread batteries are the universal standard thread type in the vape industry, and is found in almost 90% of vape batteries. There are some exceptions, such as "Pods" or larger types of batteries, but we’ll be focusing specifically on 510 threaded cartridge batteries.
It may make sense on paper, but not all 510 thread cartridges and batteries are compatible. Some batteries can be too powerful to use with certain cartridges. That being said, most cartridge brands and battery brands are compatible. The majority of pre-filled store bought cartridges will have 510 threads. In some cases, a small magnetic adapter is used to secure the cartridge to the battery. This usually involves screwing a small piece onto the 510 thread cartridge anyway. 510 threads are our favorite because they allow you to have the largest selection, and customize your vape pen for the best vaping experience. Vape pen batteries are available in a wide range of voltages and also variable voltage designs.
The most common voltage range found on 510 thread batteries is 3.3v - 4.8v. In general, most slim vape pens will be in the lower 3.3v range. This is the correct voltage for most oil cartridges but does not provide enough power for ceramic or wickless cartridges. These types of cartridges offer better vapor quality and produce more vapor, but require a voltage of 3.7 or higher. If you’re trying to find the right battery, it’s best to start at the lowest voltage possible and gauge how much vapor is being produced. You can always increase the voltage or try a higher voltage battery. his battery includes variable voltage allowing you to adjust the voltage for more or less vapor depending on your preference. MAH stands for milliampere-hour, which essentially means the duration of the battery life. While shopping for vape pen batteries, you’ll probably see MAH listed as a spec. Batteries with a higher MAH will last for a longer period of time before you need to charge them again. The higher end is usually reserved for high voltage or large atomizers. For use with a standard cartridge battery, any mah will work. Even a standard 300 mah battery should last you for an entire day. At the end of the day, the size of the battery should come down to personal preference and usage habits. When you buy a vape pen battery, it will generally include a charger for use with that battery. It’s important to use only the charger that came with the battery to ensure that you do not harm the battery or cause it to short out. Using the wrong charger can fry your battery, which essentially kills it. Even if the charging port matches another charger you own, using a faster charger is simply not worth it. Don't let the name fool you, the KandyPens MINI vaporizer is designed to produce large and smooth clouds of vapor. Most commonly referred to as buttonless, auto draw, or slim vape pens, this is the most common cartridge vape pen you will find. These types of batteries regulate the voltage based on how hard you inhale and are only activated when you inhale. These batteries should only be charged with the provided charger because they run low voltage and should be charged slower to prevent the risk of burning them out. Buttonless batteries are convenient because you don't need to click any button 5 times in a row to turn them on or off. You also don't have to worry about accidentally pressing a button when the vape is in your pocket.
Benefits: Easy to use and operate, even for beginners Low voltage for smooth vapor Compatible with almost all 510-threaded cartridges Looks like an e-cigarette Can hold a charge for days Won't accidentally light in your pocket. The second most common type of vape pen battery is 510 thread with buttons. Button vape pens require you to press and hold the button when you want to vape.
To turn on these types of vape pens, you need to click the button 5 times in a row. The same method is used for turning off the vape pen. These types of batteries are typically a standard voltage, which is around 3.7 volts, and work great with most pre-filled vape cartridges.
