    Default 901 vs 510, inquiring minds want to know.

    How come the 510 came to be the industry standard? I have used my stepson's 510, same juice, clean atty against my 901.

    901 gives better vapor. 901 gives warmer vapor. 901 gives tons more flavor. 510 gives slightly more throat hit.

    Most of the best reviewed 510 features are cartos (CE2, dual coil) and batteries (eGo, Riva) that have versions compatible with the 808, and by extension, the 901. Some, like the Riva, have direct 901 versions.

    The standard batteries that come with the kits are fairly even, with the 510 having slightly more mAh, but the 901 atty is by far superior to the 510. Both kits sell for the same average price across vendors. The carts are identical.

    So this leaves me with a burning question. What happened in the industry and at what point did the 510 become the overwhelming standard? Was it because of reviewers, availability, community marketing or is it simply that the 510 arrived to the scene earlier?

    If somebody could illuminate me about this part of PV history, I'd very much appreciate it.

    I have no real input, but a thought...

    For most all knock offs in the store I see, they are knock off 510's. Most peeps sadly start w/ a local knock off so then start with a real 510 as they work w/ the knock off parts.... ?
    I had the NLA, a cheapo 510. I was much considering a joye 510. After both seeming the same, I ended getting the 901. As in the classifieds, I could not find any 901 set-ups or parts, but a ton of 510 gear. So i figured they must be good if no one was trying to sell theirs....

    ^^^Personal opinion^^^

    Maybe due to the fact that 901s used to leak like hell? Not sure now, haven't used a 901 in 1,5years...

    Haven't had any leaking or flooding issues with mine, while my stepson's 510 floods constantly. o.o

    A 901 may be superior by far for you,but not everyone likes the same thing.Every 901 I have tried gives a cooler vapor than a 510
    (my opinion only,your results may be different.)I have yet to use a 901 that liquid don't run out the p-hole after vaping a while then set down.The flavor is a little better with a 901,but not worth the trade off.I have tried a bunch of 901's,801's,
    BE112 lr,510 cannons,hybrid bottom feed 510's.A regular 510 is what works best for me,and seems like a 901 works best for you.

    Is the threading the same on both 510 and 901?
