510 Thread Vape: One of the Most Traditional Vaporizer in the Industry

The 510 thread vape is a common standard model for vapes in the cannabis market. The name 510 comes from the ten 0.5 mm threads featured on the battery component. These threads are what screw the battery together with the 510 thread cartridge. The 510 thread battery’s capacity comes in many sizes. The modern 510 thread vape has a larger battery than its predecessor, lasting longer for cannabis vapers. Another notable characteristic of the 510 thread battery is its USB charging port which becomes a plus point for the consumers as it becomes rechargeable. Compared to pod vapes, the battery in this device is connected with a magnet mechanism instead of 510 threads (Cody, 2020).

The Advantages of 510 Thread Vape Pen

One of the advantages of the 510 thread vape is its extra compatibility. Cannabis vapers can easily mix and match between cartridges and batteries from multiple brands as long as they can be screwed together under the exact connecting mechanism. The 510 thread vape is also well-known for its petite product size and lightweight (Murray, 2021). Cannabis vapers often look for a 510 thread  vape pen, which is barely visible to other people. Due to the pen-like design, cannabis vapers can easily slip the vape pens into their pockets.

Aside from the device’s portability, 510 vape is also suitable for those cannabis vapers who prefer to control the amount of cannabis. In addition to its convenience, Cannabis vapers will be able to decide at which temperature and duration they inhale from their vapes. However, this temperature control function is only available on variable voltages 510 thread batteries. Cannabis vapers can choose multiple levels of voltages suitable for various concentrates, such as oil, wax, or dry herb. This type of 510 thread battery is usually paired with a dedicated activation button. On the other hand, the buttonless batteries have fixed voltages even though it is relatively easier to operate by inhaling through the mouthpiece. Last but not least, the newest addition to the 510 thread battery family is a disposable one that does not feature any port to recharge the battery (Murray, 2021).

What to Improve in A 510 Thread Vape?

The 510 thread vape has excellent potential in the vape industry due to its high flexibility. As the 510 thread battery has become a universal design, cannabis vapers will be able to find the power source for their cartridges quickly. The challenge for the 510 thread vape industry comes from the build quality of the vaping device itself. Cannabis vapers have been experiencing problems such as electrical faults on vaping devices. This short circuit may happen due to dirt on the 510 thread connector or vaping liquid leakage. Another concern includes poor vapor production, which might be related to the device’s small form factor. Cannabis vapers will not be able to take a high dose of vapor at once. They have to compensate by having multiple hits that eventually drain the vaping liquid faster. To preserve the life of the cannabis oil, some manufacturers also put additives that could be harmful to consumers (Green, 2020). These technical issues in 510 thread vapes could only be resolved through meticulous research and development, especially cartridge and battery efficiency. Cannabis vaporizer manufacturers should find alternative materials to additives and move on to natural ingredients, which are still relatively scarce, and Cilicon is committed to inventing the solution as well (Shover, 2018).

The Market Demand of 510 Thread Vapes

The 510 thread vapes are still high in demand. According to ADCANN (2019), vape pens are used by 15% to 30% of adult cannabis consumers in legalized states by taking samples in the United States. In Canada, the Ontario Cannabis Store (OCS) revealed that vape pens accounted for 10% of all purchases in the province. Based on the market research, the vape pen products that flooded the market are categorized into 510 thread vapes, disposables, and closed-loop systems. However, it appears that 510 thread vape is still the preferred type produced by most brands in the Canadian market. This number is expected to double or triple in the future if it proceeds into a mature market in North America. The sales volume of 510 thread vapes ranks the highest during the research (ADCANN, 2019). The statistics have proven that 510 thread vape, by far, still has a relatively high number of devotees. The manufacturers should start innovating to introduce unique and high-quality 510 thread vapes to the developing markets.
