    Thanks for all of the feedback! I'm certain I could handle a rebuildable, just not sure I want to fiddle with it yet. First, I've got an iTaste MVP 2. Will the resistance meter on that be sufficient to test an atomizer on something like the igo-l or do I need a separate meter before I dive down that path? I'm also looking at the lower dollar Cisco spec atomizers, do they all fit standard 510 drip tips? I'm also curious, maybe a dumb question, but I know the 510 is a standardized threading/size, what is 306? Is it a different standardized size or does it mean something else?

    I also forgot to ask, what is up with drip shields? What do they do and do I need one if I get a non 357 Cisco spec 510 atty?

    Regardless of what type of delivery system, All coils will go bad. an RBA is pricey, but it pays for itself in the long run if you get the hang of the process. I get wire at about 8 cents a foot and wick can be bought around 50 cents a foot. I wrap micro coils and to me they are easier to wrap and also easier to maintain and clean.

    Just make sure it says 510 in the name. If it doesn't you can judge from a picture.

    I would like to know as well. Would the resistance check from an APV be good enough for a rebuildable?

    The ohm checker on the MVPv2 will work but I greatly recommend investing in a multimeter. They are not expensive and you can use it for other projects. You don't have to buy a Fluke, just a basic digital one.

    As for the 306, it has a different case but will fit on a 510 thread device. Someone will chime in case I'm missing something about them.

    The Ohm Reader on the MVP V2 will suffice for a bit, but a dedicated multi-meter is the best for checking other things like shorts and such more thoroughly. Yes the Cisco Spec drip atty is a 510 Drip atty so will fit most 510 drip tips. A 306 drip atty uses 510 threading, the differences between a 510 and 306 are 1) the 306 is just the guts of a 510 dripper without the metal cup surrounding it, it is far older than the 510, back when plastic cartridges were filled with a foam soaking in nic liquid that fit down on the over the 306, the bridge penetraded a foil seal then wicked liquid to the coil, nowadays the 306 you use a 306 drip tip that fits over the atty base. 2) The 510 drip atty has a cup that helps hold liquid a bit and is a cooler vape than the 306 for some reason, possibly to do with the metal cup helps cool the vape on the way up, though I have heard the taste from a 306 is better than a 510 by a little bit.

    Drip shields are useful, it is a sleeve with a hole under the top o-ring and can prevent leaking liquid all over the place if you overfill a 510 atty, they work really usefully when using a 306 atty though, just requires a longer 306 drip tip on a 306, 510 drip atty standard barrel, need a sealed 510-510 adapter to raise the cup up to the top of the shield to get a drip tip on it, but no, not really necessary for using a basic 510 dripper or Cisco spec dripper.

    That's not a dumb question and it has an interesting answer. People refer to devices as having "510 threading," which suggests it is a thread size, but it isn't. If you went to a hardware store and tried to find a screw with 510 threading, you would leave empty handed.

    In the beginning, manufacturers of e-cigarettes used many different styles of connectors.



    One of the first e-cig kits Joyetech came out with was called the 510. I don't know why it was called the 510, but I imagine I will someday; I'm just like that.


    Out of the field, Joyetech's 510 connector became the front-runner. I could be wrong, but my guess is because Joyetech introduced the eGo with the same internal threading which took the market by storm. The atty in the device was good, people were already using it for direct dripping, so that became the focus of its use, while the battery moved into the background and the cartridge all but disappeared. So when someone says a device has 510 threading, what they are really saying is the device has threading like the battery and atty in a Joyetech 510 kit.

    The same is true with the 306, it's not a thread size either. The 306 was a Joyetech cig-a-like kit that had the same connection as their 510 kit, but the atty was shaped differently. It was shorter and missing the outside "jacket," but had the same configuration of a steel mesh bridge over a coil, wick and reservoir cup.


    The 306 atty had a lower resistance than the 510 attys of the time, which resulted in it providing a warmer vape. Keep in mind that variable voltage devices weren't commercially available yet, so the only way to change the output (watts) was to change the resistance of the atty. The 306 atty became very popular while the rest of the kit for the most part went by the wayside. So when someone says it's a 306 atty, what they are really saying is it's the type of atty that used to come in a Joyetech 306 cig-a-like kit. You can still buy Joyetech 306 kits today.

    There will be a test on Friday.
