    First off, I got a 510 kit from Eastmall, and it came with a USB passthrough that I didn't know I was getting. However it has a little inline battery box, but no battery in it. Can I use this without a battery in it? (haven't tried)

    Secondly, I really love my 901's and want to get a USB passthrough for that model. But I'm confused! I've read (or think I have) about them with and without the manual switch battery...and possibly with and without the inline battery. I know nothing about what features I should be looking for. Nor do I know where to purchase or how much I should expect to spend! I've searched the forums but haven't come across the needed info. There's so much to read! Help please :confused: Thanks

    The 510 passthrough needs the battery or there's no electrical connection. There are several good suppliers listed at the bottom of the forum page. I personally go with because he's my son but I do know he gives very good customer service and would be more than willing to help you with any questions you might have.

    Thanks for your reply, Malyden. I kind of figured that the 510 passthrough I have would not work without a battery.

    Hey, I love the honesty there! haahaa But I'll admit, your son Rob is a good supplier to deal with. He is on my preferred list! :)

    Well, he's not my son nor anyone I have ever met personally, but he has been of immense help to me twice. The first time was with my first order off of his site. He saw what I was trying to do, called me to clarify (about 20 minutes after I put in my order after normal working hours), and sent me what I was really trying to buy (2 complete kits when only one was showing as available on the site). The second time was a few days ago when I sent an email saying that my wall charger had stopped working and I was so hooked on my 510 I didn't want to vape my other ecig (LOL). He sent me a PM on this forum and had what I needed to me in less than 48 hours.

    He's definitely high on my list for anything he carries.

    I also recently ordered a 510 USB pass-through but from the Totally Wicked store, and like you it did not come with a battery which confused me at first. However, all it took was 1 quick e-mail and Louise from Totally Wicked replied saying that they would take care of it - a small jiffy bag arrived the next day containing the battery :) This is why I will continue to shop at that place, great customer service should always be encouraged/rewarded.

    Yes the 510 USB pass-through does require a battery, it is basically a glorified USB battery charger rather than an actual "pass-through". When the battery eventually reaches the end of its life, you will need to get a new one...
