There are several different types of vape cartridges that one can use in reusable vapes. These cartridges allow the user to try out different flavors and to easily swap out an empty cartridge for a new one. For those new to vaping, here are some of the different types of cartridges and how they differ.
510 Cartridges vs Magnet Pods
The 510 cartridge is standard for most vapes. They get their name from the 510 thread on the bottom of the cartridge. This is a screw thread that connects the cartridge to the battery that heats it. Many vapes use 510 cartridges, so it is very easy to find them.
The other main option is a magnetic pod or cartridge. Some vape pens are designed for magnetic pods, but there is an adaptor that can be used on a 510 pen to allow users to use magnetic pods with them. As the name suggests, these cartridges have a magnet instead of the screw thread. They simply snap into place.
Pre-Filled and DIY Cartridges
Another decision users need to make when it comes to cartridges is whether they want to buy pre-filled ones or DIY ones. The pre-filled cartridges are, of course, much easier to use because they are already filled and can simply be plugged in to the vape pen. DIY cartridges, on the other hand, need to be filled before they can be used in the vape pen. This is more work, but some people do prefer to fill their own cartridges with their favorite strains.
