    I just ordered a 510 USB passthrough and I'm a little hesitant to plug it into my laptop. Does it work and is it safe to plug the passthrough into the USB wall adapter that came with my eGo?

    It's a 5V, so you'll want to get a wall adapter for it. It's better to be safe than sorry and it'll work better with an adapter, too.

    OK, So I checked your link:

    I have this same one, and encountered issues that i wasn't aware of, until I asked about it on here. Just like you!

    You will need a usb wall adapter with more power than you got with your Ego. You need one that does at least 1 amp I think. You can buy 2amp wall adapters on eBay etc. This will give you the full 5 volt experience. (dont use LR atomizers on this though)

    Mine does work on my computers USB port, but i dont think its working at the full 5 volts its designed to. I have a Macbook Pro though, and I think these have pretty powerful USB ports. A lot of laptop/pc usb ports dont have sufficient power. Give it a try though, if its not powerful enough, it wont harm.. it will just not work, and the end will flash every time you hit the button.

    hi guys,

    newbie here. I just bought an ego passthrough 650mah battery. It didn't came in with a wall charger. I have a couple of usb wall charger here but im just not sure if its safe to use on my ego. One of the charger's details says input: 100-240V AC50-60Hz Output: DC 5.0V 1000ma+-5% and the other charger says input: AC 100-240V 50/60hz 120mA output: DC 5.0V 500mA.

    Can i use both of these wall chargers on my ego passthtough 650mah batt?
