Best 510 Thread Vape Pens for Cartridges in 2020

best 510 thread vapes

Last Updated on August 19, 2020


What is a 510 thread vape?

Consuming cannabis with a vape pen vaporizers works pretty much identically to vaping nicotine: You load an oil with the desired product (CBD or THC) into a cartridge with some kind of wick and element. Once this cartridge is attached to a battery, activating the unit will heat up the oil into an inhalable vapor for you to enjoy at your leisure.

Most people will have seen vapers toking down on thin, pen-like devices, but what you may not know is that a lot of these pen batteries are identified as having a “510 thread”. This cryptic name belies an innocuous enough convention – 510 simply refers to the fact that these devices connect to cartridges using a threading that has ten threads (10), and the cartridge is five millimeters long (5).

Some 510 vapes work best with oils, some with concentrates, and some can take both. Most devices designed for use with CBD or THC cartridges will use a 510 thread.

The Ccell Silo is a conceal type vape, meaning that your cartridge is housed entirely inside the device. One nice feature of this battery is that it has a window enabling you to see how much oil remains – Great for avoiding dry hits!

The Silo features a sleek and understated design, comprising of a rounded rectangular body, made from aluminum alloy and finished in matte black. Aluminum isn’t quite as durable as steel, but it makes up for this by weighing two thirds less!

One excellent feature of the Silo is that it is draw-activated, meaning there are no buttons to push.

What we like:

  • Gorgeous, minimalist design
  • Puff Activated
  • Window to check oil level

What we don’t like:

  • Relatively small battery capacity

The Honeystick Phantom Signature is, without a doubt, the best looking and feeling 510 vaporizer I have laid my hands on.

It’s luxurious aluminum and carbon fiber body is crowned with an ergonomic and satisfying squeeze trigger. Rather than fumbling with your fingers to push a button, one whole side of the device operates as your firing mechanism. The result is a satisfying and intuitive vaping experience. The squeeze trigger also as your voltage select, so no fiddling with tiny buttons.

The Phantom Signature is crafted from carbon fiber, and thick brushed aluminum, with gorgeous leather detailing, and HoneyStick’s signature hexagonal motif etched into the trigger.

This device features a massive 1000mAh battery. It can go for days without a charge, making it the perfect choice for adventurers, or anyone who occasionally forgets to charge their device (short term memory loss, anyone?).

Set Alert for Product: Kandypens Special-k 510 Thread Vape Pen - $79.95
Battery: 650mAh

Dodgy naming conventions aside, the Special K from Kandypens is a fantastic little device for anyone for whom stealth is a priority.

Even more so than most pen-like devices, the Special K is shaped to look like a pen – Not just any pen, but the kind that power-suited stock market executives from the ’90s would use to sign their cheques. In short, it looks like a million dollars, and it has a nifty slot in the side, so you always know how much oil you have left.

Underneath the flashy exterior is a little workhorse of a vape device. Powered by a 650mAh battery, one of the biggest we’ve seen in a pen-style device, you can go for days between charges.

With the Special K, you can select from multiple predefined voltages to fine-tune your vaping experience.

What we like:

  • Stylish, stealthy design
  • Easy to use
  • Great battery life

What we don’t like:

  • No Micro USB or USB type-C charger. Uses a proprietory thread-on adapter instead
  • Doesn’t feel quite as durable as some other pens

Set Alert for Product: Vessel Wood 510 Thread Vape Pen - $79.00
Battery: 250mAh

Coming in at the top of our runners’ up list is this beautifully stylish offering. The Vessel is a sleek and advanced 510 thread vape pen that doesn’t compromise on substance.

The overall feel is polished and clean, with gorgeous lines and high-end materials. A unique feature of the Vessel series of vapes is the “transition module.” This is the topmost screw-on part of the vape, which, when placed, provides the smoothest airflow you can get, resulting in a fantastic flavor and a clean feeling hit.

Unfortunately, the Vessel only comes with a 230mAh battery. The proprietory base station does an excellent job of refilling your power swiftly, making the Vessel a superb choice for regular, everyday use.

What we like:

  • Beautiful design. In our opinion, this is the most attractive pen vape out there
  • Great airflow
  • Compatible with most vape cartridges

What we don’t like:

  • Only compatible with the proprietory charger

Oil vs. Wax

cbd vs wax 1

If you’ve ever looked into concentrates, you’ve probably come across the terms oil and wax. Although people sometimes use them interchangeably, they are, in fact, two distinct substances.
Oil, as the name suggests, is a liquid containing CBD or THC. These generally come in pre-filled cartridges for use with 510 pen batteries.

Wax, on the other hand, is a solid or semi-solid concentrate. It melts and vaporizes when exposed to high temperatures and tends to be far more potent. Using wax requires a different kind of atomizer to using oil.

510 thread batteries can be used with oil cartridges or wax atomizers. Cartridges come pre-filled with your choice of THC or CBD oil, but those vape heads chasing the most potent buzz can get coils compatible with solid extracts like wax or shatter.

Types of 510 Thread Vape

Devices for vaping concentrates come in a variety of shapes, sizes, and styles to fit the needs of just about every consumer imaginable. Some of the main types you may have encountered are:

510 Thread Vapes Pens

Stealthy, portable, and discreet, these thin devices are perfect for vaping your favorite product without drawing too much attention to yourself.

Box Mods

Larger than pen-style devices, these tend to have a larger vape battery capacity but sacrifice portability.

510 Thread Battery (Conceal Devices)

With 510 thread batteries, the cartridge sits entirely inside the device. Great for stealth or for those who prefer a seriously compact device.

Disposable Devices for CBD, THC Oils

These contain a battery and pre-filled cartridge in a single unit. When the battery or oil runs out, rather than recharging or refilling, you just throw the whole thing in the trash.
