Vape Pen Battery Guide
Vape pens are the perfect way to smoke for people who are on the go and want to remain discreet. With the rising popularity of vape pens, manufacturers like Grav Labs and KandyPens have begun making them in a variety of styles and sizes, all with different features and purposes. The sheer volume of vaporizer batteries on the market today can make finding the right 510-threaded battery overwhelming. With the explosion of pre-filled vape cartridges, it’s important to use the correct one, or you could ruin your cartridge.

At Toker Supply, we’re here to help. In this extensive vape battery guide, we’ll tell you everything you need to know about cartridge batteries. Even if you’re a newcomer to the world of oil vapes, you’ll know exactly which kind of vape pen battery that works best for your vape.

What is a Vape Pen Battery?

Oil vape pens contain three major parts. The oil, the battery, and the cartridge, which is also known as an atomizer. The vape pen battery provides the correct amount of power to vaporize oil inside the cartridge. It’s important to make sure that the battery is not too powerful for your vape. This mistake could burn out the cartridge and make it unusable. Chances are that you already have a disposable pre-filled vape cartridge, and are just looking for a battery to use. With that out of the way, let’s dive into which battery you need.

What are 510 Threaded Batteries?

510 threaded batteries are the most commonly used type of vape pen batteries on the market today. The term “510 thread” refers to the thread design found on the battery, which tells you which type of cartridges will fit on the battery. 510 thread batteries are the universal standard thread type in the vape industry, and is found in almost 90% of vape batteries. There are some exceptions, such as "Pods" or larger types of batteries, but we’ll be focusing specifically on 510 threaded cartridge batteries. It may make sense on paper, but not all 510 thread cartridges and batteries are compatible. Some batteries can be too powerful to use with certain cartridges.

That being said, most cartridge brands and battery brands are compatible. The majority of pre-filled store bought cartridges will have 510 threads. In some cases, a small magnetic adapter is used to secure the cartridge to the battery. This usually involves screwing a small piece onto the 510 thread cartridge anyway. 510 threads are our favorite because they allow you to have the largest selection, and customize your vape pen for the best vaping experience.

Vape Pen Voltage Explained
Vape pen batteries are available in a wide range of voltages and also variable voltage designs. The most common voltage range found on 510 thread batteries is 3.3v - 4.8v. In general, most slim vape pens will be in the lower 3.3v range. This is the correct voltage for most oil cartridges, but does not provide enough power for ceramic or wickless cartridges. These types of cartridges offer better vapor quality and produce more vapor, but require a voltage of 3.7 or higher. If you’re trying to find the right battery, it’s best to start at the lowest voltage possible, and gauge how much vapor is being produced. You can always increase the voltage or try a higher voltage battery.

What is MAH?
While shopping for vape pen batteries, you’ll probably see MAH listed as a spec. MAH stands for milliampere-hour, which essentially means the duration of the battery life. Batteries with a higher MAH will last for a longer period of time before you need to charge them again. Vape pens tend to range from 280-900 mah. The higher end is usually reserved for high voltage or large atomizers. For use with a standard cartridge battery, any mah will work. Even a standard 300 mah battery should last you for an entire day. At the end of the day, the size of the battery should come down to personal preference and usage habits.

Vape Pen Chargers
When you buy a vape pen battery, it will generally include a charger for use with that battery. It’s important to use only the charger that came with the battery to ensure that you do not harm the battery, or cause it to to short out. Using the wrong charger can fry your battery, which essentially kills it. Even if the charging port matches another charger you own, using a faster charger is simply not worth it.

Thanks for the detailed guide :idea:
The only notion I understood if MAH :oops: I know that the higher MAH - the bigger power of battery. My latest battery purchase is 350 MAH flip flop battery (this one https://gypsyvapes.com/lokey-v2-350mah-flip-fob-battery ), the quality is very nice and the price with 30% discount is rather affordable.
