    Hi folks, I'm a newbie from Germany (= six years behind in vaping, but not vapo-politicking, oh no). The e-cig or "e-shisha" has only recently entered public conciousness over here, as a side effect of fearmongering over its health effects. So as a long-time smoker, I absolutely had to get one.

    Most starter kits over here are sold as eGo/EVOD, and I'd like to know what's what.

    As to all ancient history that I missed, the Wikipedia article is pretty clear who invented the eGo series, but they left out the 510/Kanger(?) affair, if it's Kanger that they left out.
    -- Did Kanger(tech) invent the term "EVOD", and what does it stand for - electric voiding device odd design? ...if anything? What are its features?
    -- Who invented the 510 threading, and is it older/younger than eGo, or does eGo mean both inner + outer (510) thread? Is/was there a purely inner-thread eGo device?

    Everybody always tries to sell you things, almost nowhere do I find decent info on their history/evolution (with pictures, please). The Wikipedia article reads like after the Zeppelin age of "e-cigars" the slim cigarette-lookalikes came first (510 thread = ~ 7mm), but these are rather underpowered affairs and the 14500-sized eGos followed.


    Sideline question:
    -- Who introduced the five-click safety feature and the blinkenlights (charge status indicator)?

    I could try and tell you what I *remember* but it would take too long.
    Yes... as far as I know, Kanger invented the word EVOD and it started with a tank (clearomiser). Then they sold EVOD kits with an eGo battery and that's how that started.
    The evod battery is mis-named, as it's just an eGo battery.
    510 has been around quite a long time. It's been there and been getting more 'regular' than anything else. There were clearomizers that looked like eGo fit, but they were just 510's in disguise with a skirt.
    These days, 510 is THE only sensible option. You can use eGo thread (what is left) with an adapter.

    It's ironic how larger mods & atomizers use puny 510 threading...


    ... while an eGo would probably break at the battery cover, not the battery/atomizer junction.

    Well, inner threads need no "skirts".

    I agree. The stability of the eGo thread was better, in a way.
    Still doesn't solve the issue of non-connection to the 510 pin on the mod/battery.

    Just get an iStick30 and a decent tank with 510 will be much better off than you would with the Ego/Evod (although that's what I started with). Forget about who invented the 5-click and all that stuff...ancient history.

    If you cannot get it locally, can you order from outside Germany? If so, go to and start browsing the "ecigarette" section.

    A 1/4 turn bayonet mount would be more stable,,with adaptors for the 'old' 510 batt, would have been low cost turnover. Probably won't happen due to world wide bans & restrictions,, I expect very little in technical innovation..
