What Does 510 Thread Mean?

510 thread is the industry-dominant size for vape cartridges (atomizers) and their associated batteries.

510 thread refers to the size and count of the metal threads on the screw-attachment between the atomizer and the rechargeable battery. It is a mathematic reference, meaning it has 10 threads at .5mm intervals.


Maximum Yield Explains 510 Thread

510 is an anachronistic term, coined in the early days of proprietary vape cartridge technology; modern 510 vapes do not actually have 10 threads at .5mm each, but are instead an industry standardized size, loosely based on this early tech.

Although there are other size configurations of threads on the market, 510 thread is by far the dominant battery connection for portable, pocket-sized vapes. Widely available in the legalized market, 510 vapes offer the height of convenience, portability, reliability, and interchangeability.

Vape cartridges can offer a variety of content options including, but not limited to: hash oil, cannabis oil, CBD oil, distillate, live resin, CO2 extract, and BHO.
