510 Dab Cartridge
Dab Cartridges & Wax Vape Pen 510 Cartridges
510 thread cartridges have become the standard for electric vaping pens. Sometimes called dab cartridges, oil cartridges, or vape tanks, they are critical components of your vaporizer pen, giving you a great way to enjoy smooth vaping of juice, and oils with minimal effort.
Dab cartridges are one of the easiest ways to smoke concentrates. They offer an unprecedented level of convenience and discretion, which has taken vaping to new highs in the past decade.
What Is A 510 Thread Cartridge?
A 510 thread cartridge is a container with a mouthpiece and heating element that can be filled with concentrated extracts such as wax or oil.
It fits onto any 510 thread batteries allowing you to vaporize the concentrate through the heated coil.
All the Lookah 510 cartridge/coil packs on this page use quartz coils. These coils can be used for wax, concentrates, and other extracted plant products.
There are four options, each with a different color pack for easy identification. Each pack comes with 1 tip and 4 coils.
A-model 510 thread carts (Red): 1 x tip+ 4 x Tunnel quartz coils
B-model 510 thread carts (Green)：1 x tip + 4 x Column quartz coils
C-model 510 thread carts (Yellow) ：1 x tip +4 x Flat quartz coils
D-model 510 thread carts (Blue)：1 x tip + 4 x Double quartz rod coils
Or you can choose a mixed pack that includes one of each coil wax cartridge and a single tip.
All the vape carts offer 1.2 Ohms resistance. They each have a slightly different coil design. So you can choose the one that tastes best for your concentrate.
How do 510 Dab Carts Work?
A dab pen cartridge or vape tank connects to the battery component of your vaporizer. The most common size fitting is a 510 thread, hence why these are often called 510 cartridges. Once connected, the battery provides electricity to an atomizer/coil in the cartridge. This will heat the wax or oil to the correct temperature to turn it into vapor. This vapor is then inhaled through the mouthpiece.
Advantages of a 510 Cart
There are two main reasons people use vape pens. Firstly, as there is little to no smelly smoke, you can vape inconspicuously. Secondly, vape pens are small and compact, perfectly portable, allowing you to vape almost anywhere.
Thirdly, cartridges (carts for short) often come as a sealed unit. This brings excellent convenience. It's a hassle-free way to vape as you screw it onto your 510 battery, and you're good to go. It really couldn't be any simpler than that.
Using cartridges to vaporize oil can result in a better flavor. When vaping, you can taste terpenes, and the fuller flavor profile is an additional advantage of using cartridges.
Pre-filled versus Refillable Cartridges
510 thread cartridge: prefilled cartridges and refillable cartridges.
Refillable vape cartridges offer a cost-effective way to vape your own concentrates, such as ejuice. They fit any 510 thread battery, although its best to use one which allows you to adjust the temperature.
With more control, you can specify the temperature you would like to vaporize in degrees, fully optimizing the experience and setting the best temp for your concentration.
510 threaded oil carts are available at just about every dispensary and headshop. When buying cannabis products make sure you get high-quality cannabis oil or THC oil products by going with known brands and double check labels to verify products have been tested and are not fakes. There have been incidents of fake vaping oil being sold in pre-filled cartridges in the past so make sure you buy from a licensed and accredited source.
While effortless, prefilled cartridges will start to add up costing more than refillable cartridges in the long run. However, pre-filled cartridges are hassle-free and a great way to dip a toe into the oil vapes before investing in more specific equipment. If you start with a good 510 battery, you can easily upgrade to refillable cartridges once you're ready.
What to Look for in a Refillable Cartridge?
Cart tanks can vary in capacity, which will affect the actual fill capacity limiting how much oil or concentrates you can load in each fill. Different materials like quartz, ceramic, silica, titanium, nickel, and kenthol affect your vaporized concentrate's flavor profile. These different materials will also influence the peak volts or watts you can power them with. This, in turn, will limit the size of the rip you can get.
Rather than maintaining a set temperature, most vapes will try to regulate the wattage or voltage. This allows a more consistent burn and is easier to control because when the vapes components heat up, the resistance can easily change, greatly affecting the output temperature.
