    :confused: I need some advice. I have currently been using a No. 7 for nearly a month. I was happy with it until recently, and have decided I want something else, probably a 510 based on the opinions of others in this forum. So here's what I would like to know from anybody who has tried the 510 and the No.7:

    How is the throat hit in a 510? With a fully charged batt and a full cart, my No.7 has a pretty nice throat hit, but after a few puffs it dropps down to barely-acceptable. Throat hit is definitely most important to me.

    How many drops of E-liquid does a basic 510 cart hold? If I put 4 drops in my No.7 I already risk overfilling.

    In relation to the No.7, how are the 510 batts? At first, my No.7 batts were holding a charge for a good while, but about 3 weeks later its dying faster and faster. So with a 510, how long will the batts hold a charge, and also how long before the battery just needs to be replaced?

    I'm also considering a JOYE 910, since the size isn't really all that important to me. I'm also open to any other suggestions since I want the best, but don't want to spend much more than $100.

    My priority list is: 1-Throat Hit 2-Cart capacity 3-Battery quality 4-Reliability/durability 5-size(although some of those hybrids do seem a bit too big) 6-visible vapor(I'm not allowed to vape at work, so it's actually a bit of a bonus to be able to hide it easier)

    Oh, and on a related note, other than being sealed, what benefits are there to a manual battery over an automatic?

    Additional notes: First, the No. 7 is the only E-cig i've ever used so far. Second, I left out "flavor" in my priority list because I figure that is determined by the e-liquid itself much more than the e-cigarette.

    Manual batts offer more control imo, some people like autos so they can hang the PV out of their mouth an vape (look no hands! lol) but I think MORE people prefer the manuals.
    I dont have an SS micro so I cant compare it with a 510 - I CAN tell you I get good TH and vapor with my 510 and I think its good on taste as well. I have a 901 that vapes slightly cooler which I use for fruity vapes. I prefer the 510 overall though.
    Ordinary 510 batteries don't have a long life.
    They recharge fast but most people who vape a lot tend to get either a MEGA battery (for the 510) or a mod like a EGO, Bartelby etc. I use a PT as Im at home alot. That solves my battery issues lol
    I've not had to replace any batteries yet but then i dont use mine a whole lot because of the PT. I find they charge up inside of 2 hours tops btw. You can buy a PCC for on-the-go charging.

    You can get a decent starter 510 at Cignot your Midwest Electronic Cigarette store. for $35
    That comes with standard batteries not the mega ones. You can also get kits from them for a bit more that include PT or PCC. They are going to stock Egos but havent had any delivered yet.
    Also Madvapes sell 510 kits and also 510 disposables (a try beefore you buy sort of thing) for around $10. Those are obviously jsut throwaways BUT they can be recharged, jsut don't expect them to last forever.
    There are also other suppliers who sell all of these items, those I just ones Ive dealt with :)

    Thanks a lot CaptJay. I hadn't even looked at prices for the 510 and spare parts until a few hours ago and didn't realize how cheap it is. I think I'll go with that for now and see how it is for myself. I'll also take your advice and try the manual batteries. I'll probably get the PT kit and, if i like it, buy the PCC seperately.

    I'm at home a lot during the week, but on the weekends I might be out from noon until 3 am. I got a car charger for my No.7, which I've read is compatible with the 510, but the outlet in my truck doesnt work(like most things on the truck) and in my wifes car the charger gets in the way of first gear. Thus, a PCC would be a nice alternative.

    The no. 7 micro was my first pv. It doesn't even compare to the 510. The 510 with blue foam holds over 10-12 drops of juice. I didn't like the auto batts cause there to easy to flood. If you are concerned about battery life just get the Ego or Tornado. One Tornado last me the entire day vs. three to four standard 510 batts.

    Thanks for your post WIvapor. It's nice to hear it from somebody who has tried the No. 7 micro and the 510. I'm going to have my wife order my 510 tomorrow while I'm at work, so hopefully I'll have it on Monday. Going with the I'm going to go check out the Ego and Tornado right now, although I might stick with the basic starter batteries for a bit. The problem will be limping through the weekend with the No. 7.

    By the way, I've heard No. 7 micro and 510 parts, or at least some, are compatible. Have you tried mixing them at all, and did it work?

    I am using the no7 & ordered the 510. Did the no7 usb charger work with the 510?

    I disagree. I've had a 510 for a while and bought a no. 7 micro because i needed something retail. (they sell them t the local smoke shop and sometimes i just can;t be bothered with mail order) I find it comparable to a straight 510, though the juice capacity is tiny.

    the no.7 will use a RN4081 battery/charger. Incompatible with 510, though adapters can be bought.
