Should newbies start with something with 510 threads?

    Im a newbie myself. I've been vaping for about two months but I'm not completely off analogs yet. Making progress which is great. I'm about 75% off analogs but keep a pack around for security when my devices fail me in some way.

    One thing I wish I knew was the fact that 510 threads seem to becoming more or less the standard. I bought a Halo k808 set as my first rechargeable set. It's fine but I wish I had gone with something 510 instead. Every other device I have bought since (Ego, Vamo) can use 510. My Halos are kind of orphaned now. I still use them but can't put the cartos on the ego battery which would be nice since I do enjoy a carto vape.

    My my progress was fairly normal, gas station disposables, rechargable cig-a-likes, Ego, Vamo.

    510 for sure give you more options of toppers. Add to that that a lot of devices now come with 510 inside and ego threads outside and you pretty much have 85-90% of all the toppers for sale covered. I personally would always recommend a 510 / ego threaded device to all new vapers.

    A lot of the other thread types are now proprietary - meaning you have to buy that particular carto / tank for refills.

    Saying that, you can usually find adapters for virtually all thread types. So if you don't want to buy a new battery, but want to use a different topper, then you can do a quick google search for an adapter and you'll probably find one for a few bucks.

    Simplest means to progress.

    Like universal vs proprietary, do you wish to be able to expand or be locked in?

    My Volcano Inferno has 510 threading but a lot of tanks etc don't work with them because they do not have the ego threading as well. I would recommend something with the 510/ego threading because that is pretty much the standard threading now on most delivery devices (tanks, cartomizers, clearomizers etc).

    I think its a natural progression for a lot of smokers wanting to quit to start with ecig a likes. So they end up getting those with 808 threading. (I think that is what they are call) So there is a use for them. :D But with the natural progressing I would suggest getting a battery with both 510/ego threading so it is not limited in the many various tanks/cartos out on the market today. For me, I still have my Halo G6 starter kit. I actually use it once in a while and I will not get rid of it for when I travel on a plane. I like to keep my tanks empty so not to crack under pressurization, and having the G6's with cartos filled with my favorite flavors will get me through until I get to my destination.

    I remember when the 510 was the new thing and you needed adapters if you wanted versatility. Now I would just recommend 510/ego threading for the pure versatility. Things sure have come a long way from the RN4081

    510/ego is the way to go! Works with almost everything! :)

    How it vary from one to other. I did not intend to quit cigarettes. But within a few days I quit.(After 40 years hand rolling and some years ready cigarettes) No fuss about it. I see here some people going on smoking for a long time which amazes me. Because I know if they had chosen higher nic level juices they should not be able to smoke. Even if smoking less can be considered as a wanderful achievement you can do better my friends go to it dont deny your lungs from the benefit of pure air.

    510 is the industry standard, places like Halo and a few others use off size connections in an attempt to keep customers from leaving. Your better off dumping them and moving on to stuff that's universally compatible.

    You can buy an adapter for about 3$.

    Your progression does seem normal.... we keep wanting better so we keep buying new mods. 510 is one of the more popular threads so starting with them allows you to keep using your same tanks when you move up to new devices.
