    Hi Guys,

    I use a joye510, and am quite annoyed I need to recharge constantly, so I have decided to get a bigger battery, was wondering if the joye ego battery fits the joye 510 cartomizers. Is there an adapter I need to use, or does it just screw straight on?:confused:

    Would the ego voltage be different to the 510 battery and toast my juice?

    cheers

    The eGo is a 510 device so everything should work fine.

    Ego battery will take a long time to charge on a regular 510 charger. Consider getting an Ego charger for your Ego batteries only.

    510 attys / cartos WILL fit directly onto an ego battery. Voltage is SUPPOSED to be the same but to me (have both) the vapor is better from the ego in addition to the greatly increased battery life.

    Check out Liberty-Flights w/ their 20% discount, as you will want a charger made for the ego battery and they have great prices on their ego starter kits, right at 50 bucks for 2 batts, 2 atties, 2 cones (atty/carto cover), charger, and some extra carts. For the price you get some good spare parts that you will need, and the cost is definitely lower than buying the individual components separately.

    A note on charging:
    you can charge an ego batt on a 510 charger (but takes much longer)
    you cannot charge a 510 batt on the ego charger, due to possibility of overcharging and damaging the smaller battery.

    Plus, who doesn't need a couple of spare atty's anyway. Once you add in two ego batts and an eGo charger, it's less expensive to just get the whole eGo kit:

    At libertyflights they have a "Riva 510" too, it's like a knock-off eGo but it's done so well that some folks even prefer in over the original eGo...and for $34 it can't be beat:

    They're exactly the same except the eGo has a hard plastic button and the Riva 510 has a soft rubber button.

    You can use the PT as it is charging. Personally the battery life seemed small to me, but that couldve been because the PT's are 650 mah, and Ive never had a 650 mah ego..Im a 900 or 1000 mah kinda guy. But for cruisin in the truck,or trolling the web, The PT works wonders.

    I have several 510 standards, megas, eGos, and eGo-Ts. Love all of them. One of the main reasons I like 510series is their interchanging parts If you get some eGo batteries they will work on with the 510 attys. If you want to go "tank," either now or later, you can just purchase the eGo-T attys which fit the eGo batteries. Only other thing you would need would be tank tips/carts.

    I got the eGo passthrough recently. The original cord is broken, I think, but luckily my husband is a geek so he just happened to have another one -- but it's only about 8" long! hahahahaha! so I have to lean in about 4" from my computer screen to vape with it. LOL!

    As for the battery, I don't think it lasts very long either. Not nearly long enough. I wouldn't trust it to take out with me for a long drive or anything. Ok, I admit it, I guess I'm giving the eGo PT a thumbs down.

    And +1 on what Bradder said. Ego's so cool because you can....

    *cart w/ atomizer
    *cartomizer
    *tank
    *drip tip
    *clearomizer

    with just a $10 addition here or there. Nice!

    I am using an eGo cone on my Riva battery now. I also have an Ego case (8 bucks from madvapes) that works perfectly with the Riva.

    There is one difference between the Ego and Riva besides the button. The Riva is a 750mah battery, and the Ego is a 650mah.

    Riva batteries have a different button
    Gold accent instead of chrome
    A polished black finish that feels smoother compared to the matte finish of the eGo
    750 mAh instead of 650 mAh, which honestly, I don't know if 100 mAh makes a HUGE difference in how long the charge lasts, but a little longer anyhow.

    The other thing I will say is I usually have give my riva battery a very slight twist with the eGo-T atty on it to get a better, looser, draw. I don't mind doing it much myself, and have not taken a dremel tool to the atties to mod it. Also the OCD part of me doesn't like that my Atty has a different finish than my battery, but I can live with that. (sort of).

    The riva is a great kit at unbeatable price from LF. Some prefer it to eGo or vice versa, performance will be the same regardless if you have an eGo, Riva or Tornado.

    One more difference. The Riva outputs about 4.2V at full charge, and near 3.3V at the end of a charge. The Joye eGo however is regulated to give a consistent output at 3.4V.
