Anatomy of a 510 Thread Cartridge:

  • Mouthpiece (Plastic, metal, ceramic, wood, etc.)
  • Tank (.5 ml, 1 ml, 2.2 graml, etc.)
  • Oil Inlet hole (larger size hole for thicker juice)
  • Airflow (bottom, top, variable airflow)
  • Atomizer (Ceramic over wicked)

Best practices:

  1. Use the correct wattage for your coil. Generally between 3 – 5 volts on variable pens. Or 5 – 10 watts on a box mod.
  2. Make sure your connection to the device works with the type of airflow of your cartridge. You may need a top airflow cartridge to use with some devices.
  3. Don’t burn out coils of the atomizer by hitting it when it’s empty. Refill promptly for best results.
  4. Remove tip when in pocket or not using extended time to keep from damaging the cartridge, the battery or both.
  5. Keep the pen’s battery charged or keep a backup battery to use while charging your favorite device.
