510 E Cigarette
All About The 510 E-Cigarette (Joye 510 and others)
Undoubtedly, those new to the electronic cigarette bandwagon typically try out either the eGo electronic cigarette or the 510 e-cigarette. However, the 510 e-cig is regarded as the more widely used and cost-effective alternative largely due in part to its thread configuration. Having this thread configuration equals flexibility for vapers since you can freely try out a wide array of cartomizers and atomizers until you come across the perfect combination for you.
Types of 510 E-Cigarette
The battery of a 510 e-cig comes in both manual and automatic versions. The difference between the two is that an automatic battery activates the e-cig automatically once you take a drag, while a manual battery only activates an e-cig with the press of a button. In general, the battery of a typical 510 e-cigarette has a 180 mAh charging capacity which can normally suffice for approximately 80 to 90 standard drags. Below are 510 E-Cigarette types.
510 E-Cigarette with Drip Tip and Atomizer
Advantages – The configuration of this electronic cigarette combination provides you with excellent flavor and production of vapor.
Disadvantages – Generally inconvenient and can get you weird looks from strangers. Although, the atomizer and drip tip combination is commonly preferred by more experienced and hardcore vapers for its outstanding vapor and flavor production, novice vapers usually shy away from this because of inconvenience. Since you should pour e-juice after puffing on your e-cig a few times, you have to carry with you a drip tip and a bottle of e-juice everywhere you go if you want to smoke.
510 E-Cigarette with Cartomizer
Advantages – Utmost convenience and ease of use. You simply screw the combination together and you’re ready to go. It also doesn’t leak and provides topnotch flavor and vapor production.
Disadvantages – Because of the more advanced system used with this electronic cigarette combination, it is generally more expensive than other combinations or electronic cigarette kits. Likewise, a conventional cartomizer for a 510 electronic cig can only accommodate 1ml of e-liquid which is roughly equal to a pack of traditional tobacco cigarettes.
A five-pack prefilled cartomizer set can set you back around $10. While you can always opt to purchase cartomizers that you can fill up yourself, some e-cig manufacturers are known to include plastic tips on prefilled cartomizers which can make filling e-juice a chore. Halo Cigs however offer prefilled cartomizers that can be easily refilled by users.
510 E-Cigarette with Tank
Advantages – Offers huge e-liquid capacity, affordability, and user-friendliness. Empty 510 electronic cigarette tanks undoubtedly contain more e-juice than cartomizers, are more affordable, and may be filled with the e-liquid of your choice. Normally, a full e-cig tank will suffice an entire day if you are not a chain vaper.
Disadvantages – Does not provide optimal vapor production like cartomizers. Likewise, it can be quite messy when refilling the tanks. This is fine if you’re vaping in your own personal space at home, but in public spaces, e-juice can drip everywhere.
510 E-Cigarette Kits
Of all the 510 e-cig kits out in the market, Halo and Volcano seem to be the top contenders.
Halo 510 E-Cigarette Kit – The 510 electronic cigarette kit called the Element is an excellent purchase since it offers users the chance to use drip tips, cartomizers, and cartridges with the condition that you also include an order of drip trip to your package. Likewise, since this e-cigarette starter kit only come with empty cartomizers, you can also opt to purchase prefilled cartomizers for convenience. Halo is known to provide vapers with outstanding throat hit and vapor and flavor production. They also offer traditional tobacco and menthol flavorings with e-juice made in the U.S.
Volcano 510 E-Cigarette Kit – The Volcano Magma is available in two versions; once with the tank and one with drip tip. They also offer e-liquids made in the United States with menthol, traditional tobacco, and other fruit flavorings.
Choosing the Perfect 510 E-Cigarette Kit For your needs
The foundation of the 510 e-cig configuration is its battery since all compatible e-cig attachments can be interchanged with each other. Because of this, vapers can easily switch to drip tips, cartomizers, or tanks without having to buy another battery. It is important to note however that you should know the main difference between 510 manual and 510 automatic batteries.
At the top portion of an automatic battery is a tiny hole located in the threading’s middle portion. This small hole is responsible for letting air seamlessly travel through so vapers won’t feel air pressure once they take a puff. This is very ideal if you don’t use the drip system. Those who drip are supposed to put an empty tip in the atomizer component in order for them to pour some e-liquid on the heating coil prior to inhaling.
Although messy, many vapers actually love using drip tanks since it does away with the filler and plastic between their mouths and the heating coil. This results in enhanced vapor production and purer flavor. When using an automatic battery however, you risk damaging your battery since if you accidentally pour too much e-juice, it will drip through the atomizer and on to the small hole in the battery. In this light, those who are interested in dripping should consider purchasing a manual 510 e-cig battery as well.
Once you have decided on the kind of battery you want to use, you can now choose which electronic cigarette kit to purchase: one with cartomizers, tanks, or atomizers. You can easily switch between the three since they make use of the same battery. On the other hand, for novice e-smokers who want a more user-friendly approach to vaping, a 510 E-Cigarette starter kit with prefilled cartomizers is your best option since you just charge it, attach the cartomizer, and vape away.
