510 Cartridges are a widely common and convenient method for the consumption of concentrate products. 510 threaded vape pen technology has improved drastically in terms of performance and safety over the past few years.
A 510-threaded vape cartridge is typically filled with distillates or oils. Since its inception, 510 threaded oil carts have been a standard in the vaporizer industry. Individual companies have developed their own proprietary hardware and pen styles over time. However, the 510 thread format has remained the dominant trend within the market space.
Let's take a more in-depth look at what a 510 cartridge is comprised of...
'510 threading' refers to the male end of the cartridge having 10 metal threads at 0.5 mm intervals. The term was first coined by Joyetech when they launched their eGo-T electronic cigarette back in the late 2000s. 510 threaded cartridges were quickly adopted by many companies and became the industry standard.
510 threading on cartridges are often made with materials that offer a ratio between conduction and durability. Types of 510 threading material can include:
A 510-threaded cartridge is a pre-filled capsule device with various components and features. Oil cartridges usually contain a heating element, atomizer, reservoir, and internal components necessary for vaporizing substances into an aerosol. Most cartridges on the market are comprised of the following:
Top Airflow: Air travels downward, over the coil, and back up through the mouthpiece. Possesses an advantage in regards to fluid leak resistance.
Bottom Airflow: Air travels directly upward over the coil, through the canal, and out of the mouthpiece. Providing more flavor, however, the tradeoff is a greater risk of leakage due to the nature of the airflow location.

Studies have shown that metal alloys used as a heating element pose a severe health risk. This is due to oxidized components leaching heavy metals into extracts and concentrates over some time.
Metal heating elements coupled with cotton wicking agents show inconsistent performance in tandem with high-viscosity oils. Primarily because of the cotton-wicking agent failing to absorb products adequately. This causes issues such as spitting or dry hitting.
A 510-thread battery is the power supply for vaporizing your concentrate products in conjunction with a cartridge. 510 threaded batteries come in various shapes, sizes, and functionalities.
Draw Activated: Drawing air through the cartridge will prompt the flow sensors to initiate the vaping process. This creates a seamless vaping experience. Draw-activated batteries are usually designed for all-in-one disposable vape devices with limited battery life. Allowing for the product to be ready to use right out of the package.
Button Activated: Pressing the button activates vaping process and also allows adjustments to the voltage settings for a customized vaping experience. This variety of batteries often offers variable voltage settings and led lights to indicate presets. A variable voltage setting allows a user to more accurately control the temperature of their vapes depending on the product consumed.
DM Lift’s 510 threaded vape batteries can be designed as either draw or button activated. Our button-activated batteries feature adjustable voltage settings ranging from 2.6V, 3.3V, or 4V. This ensures the best vaping experience regardless of what kind of product is being vaped.
