Sometimes, it feels like you have to learn a whole new language just to buy and enjoy weed, but at Strains Dispensary, we’re here to help. Some of the most common questions customers near Hemet ask us are about dab pens and what a dab pen battery is.

What Is a Dab Pen Battery?

A “dab pen” is another term for a vape, so a “dab pen battery” is another term for a vape battery. You’ll also occasionally hear some of these batteries referred to as “510s”, referring to the threading size on most units. No matter what you call a dab pen battery, though, you can find a variety at Strains Dispensary!

Different Types of Vape Battery

Vape Voltage

Voltage represents the potential energy of an electric current or battery; for a vape battery, more voltage means more heat. Hotter isn’t always better, though – burning weed extract at a higher temperature produces thicker smoke, but it can also destroy the flavor profile of more subtle strains. Most dab pens take batteries that output 2.5 to 4.8 volts and some batteries are variable voltage, so you can adjust the burn for different extracts.

Threading and Shape

Most dab pen batteries are small cylinders with visible threading – these are typically referred to as 510s. While this is the standard size and shape for vape batteries, it’s not universal. Make sure the battery you buy can fit your favorite carts!

Vape Push-Button or Autodraw

Some vape batteries merely require inhalation to activate the heating unit, while others require you to push a button. Autodraw batteries tend to operate at lower temperatures – they’re good for beginners and for those who prefer smaller, lighter cartridges. Push-button batteries can burn much hotter, making them great for ceramic cartridges and extracts that require high heat.

Vape Battery Life

Dab pen battery life is measured in mAh, or milliampere hours, and most come in at 200-900 mAh. If you carry your dab pen with you and take occasional hits all day, you can expect a 200 mAh battery to last you 1-2 days when fully charged.
