510 threading is the standard connection you’ll find in all vape pens. This standard is what makes it possible to easily swap between carts and strains with ease. It’s their sleek, small, and portable nature that makes them the ideal choice for users who want to enjoy their choice concentrates on the go.
Since the carts do come with their own atomizers and mouthpieces, the vapor quality is highly dependent on your choice of cartridge. The devices themselves offer varying temperature options, added features, and of course – long-lasting battery power.
The G-Pen Micro+ is first and foremost a concentrate pen, yet it also performs exceptionally well as a 510 battery. It’s also one of the smartest batteries we’ve seen on any device currently on the market. It features 510 cartridge recognition technology, which distinguishes between cartridges and the Micro+ tank, and also has a chip that gets real-time feedback from the coil and makes instant micro-adjustments to the power output in order to keep the temperatures steady and consistent. Ensuring zero overheating and a more consistent experience.
The Kind Pen Breezy is a sleek and straightforward conceal-type battery. Conceal-type batteries mean that the cart hides within the device body, away from view. The Breezy has an ergonomically curved body, a quick heat-up time and 4 voltage settings, and a pre-heat mode, so you can fully master your desired vaping profile. Instead of having to screw your cart in, the Breezy comes with two magnetic adapters that allow the device to hold either 0.5g or 1g oil carts.
The Caligo Opus is a uniquely shaped, stealthy, and smart 510 system. It features complete cartridge concealment, a LED display, haptic feedback, and dual activation – which means you can either use the firing button or just draw as you want. The LED Display is also a feat in itself – other than displaying all the necessary device information, there’s also a puff counter and an inhale duration timer.
Alongside all these, the Opus has a 700 mAh battery, 3 pre-set settings, an aluminum alloy body, and 2 contoured magnetic mouthpieces in the kit.
The Yocan UNI Pro sits at the top of Yocan’s UNI line- it’s a simple and straightforward device. Yet it also comes with several well-thought-out features that elevate any vaping session, such as Yocan’s patented adjustable diameter dial, sliding switch to raise or lower the attached cart, and a magnetic adapter to ensure compatibility of your cart and provide a steady flow of power and heat.
The UNI Pro also features precise voltage control, an OLED display, and a 650mAh battery which charges via USB-C.
The Yocan Lux is a budget-friendly 510 threaded, pen-style vape battery. It has a zinc alloy body, an internal 400mAh battery, variable voltage, and a 15-second preheating function. A lot like most 510 batteries, it features a single button to control all its features, but instead of having to press the button repeatedly to cycle through the pre-set temperatures, the Lux has a unique silver dial at the top of the pen.
You can opt to go from 1.8v to 4.2v simply by twisting the dial. The dial has the voltages laser printed onto it and has a pretty tactile “clicky” feel when it’s being twisted. Meaning you can switch through the temperatures simply by feeling instead of having to look all the time.
The HoneyStick BeeKeeper is a pen-style battery that also fully conceals the attached cartridge. It features 4 pre-set voltage settings, a 500mAh battery, micro-USB charging, overheat and overcharge protection, and a magnetic adapter for easy switching between carts.
One of the BeeKeeper’s best features is its 2 stage pre-heating mode. Once pre-heating begins, the device runs a low voltage through the cartridge, and also heats the cart 360 degrees from the outside to get the contents to a perfect viscous consistency – no more dry draws, ever.
