Standard 510 Threaded Vape Pens

Basic Vape Pen for Cannabis Oil

Need a cheap vape pen? Want something that works with all vape cartridges?

We recommend going with a standard vape pen battery like this auto draw vape pen. This vape pen battery is as cheap as they come.

Nothing fancy. It’s simple, and it works.

These vape pens are perfect if you’re new to vaping or just need a cheap backup vape battery.

The most basic vape battery is completely fool-proof. No buttons to press, no volt settings to adjust – screw on any cannabis vape cartridge, and puff puff!

You can find these standard vape batteries for usually around $10-15.

There’s endless options available when it comes to basic vape pen batteries. You will find that many vape cartridge brands, cannabis oil manufacturers, and dispensaries offer their own branded versions of pretty much the same standard 510 threaded vape pen.

Although most of these vape pens look the same, they can vary in technical specs like battery storage capacity, power output, charging time and ability to adjust voltage among other features.

Similar to the auto draw battery mentioned earlier, the more advanced model is an adjustable voltage battery. This allows you to tune in to the optimal vape temp that’s best suited for the thickness of your cannabis oil cartridge.

Basic vape batteries with adjustable volt presets can be found for around $20-40.

If you feel comfortable spending a few more bucks, it’s worth buying from a reputable brand name, like KandyPens, that backs their products by warranty.

We like to keep these vape pens handy as an extra 2nd or 3rd battery in case there’s no time to re-charge!

Technical Details

Many basic vape batteries, like the standard vape pen, have a storage capacity of 280 – 300 mAh and operate at voltage a range of 3.3 – 4.2 v.

These batteries will usually last for an entire 500 mg cannabis oil cartridge (may require one or two additional charges depending on vape cartridge efficiency). Most batteries can typically be recharged between 200-300 times before they start to fail.
