Why You Should Choose a 510 Thread Battery

One of the great things about portable vaping is the amount of customization that can take place with your device. Being able to try different materials or tanks used to be limited to large, box mod style vaporizers. As time went on, companies figured out ways to make portable vaping a more personal experience for consumers. After some initial awkwardness between vape battery companies and their tank and pre-filled cartridge counterparts, a universal thread was agreed upon to open up the market for more battery and tank/cartridge combinations.

The 510-threaded battery is now the “universal” battery for vape pens, giving you a ton of options for on-the-go vaping. Vaporizer companies have been able to house variable voltage batteries inside their 510 thread to allow for both flavor-centric sessions and cloud chasing opportunities.

A 510-threaded battery that is equipped with a variable voltage battery will usually feature a voltage range of 3.3 volts to 4.8 volts, which is the correct voltage for most cartridges. Often times you’ll see “mAh” listed as a feature for vape pen batteries. This is an acronym for “milliampere-hour”, which basically just means battery life. A standard 300mAh battery should last you an entire day. 

The learning curve for a 510-threaded battery is not steep, so this type of vaporizer is a great starter battery for those just getting into the vape game. We’ve got a few fantastic variable voltage, 510-threaded batteries to go through below. Let us know if you have any in particular that you enjoy in the comments!

O.PenVAPE has been producing universal 510-threaded batteries since 2012, and their focus is on creating functional devices that are easy to use, but still offer some customization to your vape sessions.


The O.PenVAPE 2.0 Variable Voltage Battery is the upgraded version of their O.riginal Battery, and now features four voltage options for users to choose from, and the ability to pick from single button draw control or breath-activation. An auto-shutoff feature saves battery power and prevents your material from being vaporized while the O.PenVAPE 2.0 Variable Voltage Battery is in your pocket.


The variable voltage range for this 510-threaded battery is 2.4V - 4.0V, with the lower end of the voltages suited for people who want more flavor, and the higher options help deliver thick vapor clouds. This 510 thread battery has an mAH of 280.

280mAh Variable Voltage Battery - $21.50

This 510-threaded battery is one of the more “no-nonsense” options available. Four preset temperatures have been calibrated to deliver flavorful or cloud-filled session. The auto-draw system on this 510-threaded battery makes it so vapor is only delivered as you breathe in, saving you seconds in heat-up time and ensuring no “dry firing” of the device.


One button controls the 280mAh Variable Voltage Battery; five clicks to power on, three to toggle voltages, and two clicks activate the “preheat” setting which warms your material for 10 seconds to allow for discreet vaping.


KandyPens 350mAh Battery - $34.95

The KandyPens 350mAh Battery is one of the more powerful 510-threaded battery options on the market today. A 350mAh battery gives you more than enough power for a full day of vaping, but still is packaged in a pocket or purse-friendly, pen-style shape. KandyPens put their version of a preheating mode, Sesh Mode, into this pen to allow for the enjoyment of consecutive draws after a brief period of your material being heated.


Offering three voltages, 3.7V, 3.9V, and 4.1V, makes the KandyPens 350mAh battery one of the most powerful and versatile options.
