The Joye 510 e-Cigarette - one awesome little cig!

Has the Joye 510 replaced the DSE901 as my favorite e-Cigarette? I think it has.

We hardly ever get and replacement requests for the Joye 510 products. Out of several thousand untis sold I think we have replaced maybe 5 batteries and a handful of atomizers. These things are just rock solid all around. The 510 atomizer is just about bullet proof and part of that I believe is because of the secondary wick under the atomizer bridge. This helps keep the atomizer coil wet. A dry atomizer coil is a recipe for disaster and this is where many new users run into problems.

The Joye 510 batteries are also solid built. The button is high quality and the connector is well attached. The battery life on the 510 isn't the greatest but that is purely because of the battery cell size and not related to a quality issue. A Joyetech 510 PCC (Personal Charge Case) takes care of this problem and gives you a sturdy box to carry your 510 e-Cigarette parts around with you.

We carry the matte black with blue LED 510, the matte white with orange LED 510 and soon will have metallic blue with blue LED 510 in stock. Other colors of the Joye 510 will also be on order soon! We also stock a good variety of Joyetech accessories. You can always count on us to let you know exactly what you are buying. We NEVER sell non-Genuine products as the real thing.

Some people often get the model/name mixed up. It's often referred to as the Joye 501, Joyetech 501 or DSE501. There are also clones of the Joyetech 510 on the market so be aware of what you are buying and make sure it is a Genuine Joyetech 510 e-Cigarette! We do carry clone replacement atomizers and some people prefer these over the real Joye 510 atomizers because they produces a lighter/smoother vapor.

Some of the new items we've added recently

Some of you may have noticed that we recently added larger 30ml bottles of our top 5 selling e-Liquids. Those flavors are Menthol, Kamel, Red & White, 555 and Ry4. Strength available are medium 18mg and high 24mg.

We have more flavors on order in 30ml sizes and will also be adding some in low strength.

Other new flavors in 10ml will also be available soon.

We also have some flavors available without nicotine. We like to encourage our customers to enjoy vaping with e-Cigarettes but also try to remember to reduce your nicotine intake. Your smoking addiction may not be the nicotine as much as you might think.

If you have friends or family that are curious about the e-Cigarette but are afraid to spend $50-60 for one, might I suggest the Boge 510 disposable trial kit. For around $10 you will receive a rechargeable battery, USB charger, atomizer and three cartridges. The battery is rated to be recharged 3 times but we are finding it lasts much longer than this. Even better is the fact that if you decide to upgrade to a true Joye 510 e-Cigarette starter kit, the atomizer from the disposable set can be used with it. These trial kits can also be great as inexpensive back up units. Keep one in your desk at work or home in the event your normal equipment fails unexpectedly. We don't recommend storing them in a vehicle because of the potential high temperatures that may damage the e-Cigarettes' batteries.

We now have Joye 510 e-Cigarette starter kits available in white with orange LED tips. Metallic blue with blue LED tips are on the way. We also stock Joye 510/306 PCC (Personal Charge Cases) in several colors.

Other new items will be on the way soon!

Big battery mods - a quick primer

This blog post will attempt to educate consumers a little more on "mods" and why you might want one or why you might even NOT want one. I'm not going to go super in depth in order to try to keep this post short.

First I must say if you are new to e-Cigs, this is definitely one reason you DON'T want one. You need to learn the basics before jumping up into a fancier device so please resist the temptation. A nice inexpensive DSE901 or Joye 510 e-Cigarette starter kit will give you a general idea if e-Cigarettes are your thing. It also is a good learning experience on how the parts work and learning to use them correctly so they will have a decent life span.

If you are experienced then here is a short list of why you might want one:
  • Extended battery life by using larger and inexpensive li-ion batteries
  • Some devices offer multiple voltage capabilities which can enhance (or complicate) things
  • The mod devices are often much more reliable than regular e-Cigarette batteries
  • Many mods come in different designs/form factors which you may find appealing
Most regular e-Cigarette batteries are 3.7v DC (nominal, or normal) but are often 4.2v DC or a tad higher right off the charger. This is their "peak" voltage. mAh ratings, which are important, are usually between 150mAh and 380mAh depending on the brand/model.

Please don't let anyone fool you that one mod smokes better than another using the same batteries and atomizers. 3.7v DC at around 1600mAh with a Joye 510 atomizer is going to be the same on pretty much any device. Period. The subtle differences that may be caused by airflow will hardly be noticed by you the end user. Many people will tell you about the plumes of vapor mod A makes over mod B and how much better the vapor tastes, etc. It simply isn't true. So when shopping for a mod or watching mod review videos, keep this in mind. Pick the unit that is pleasing to your eye and has the features you desire.

What we recommend you look for:
  • Solid construction without any breakable joints or connectors
  • Avoid mods with wires or solder joints that can heat up and break and/or short
  • Mechanical type switch with a locking mechanism for safe pocket/purse carrying
  • Vent holes in the tube, preferably the bottom - if not used properly, li-ion batteries CAN vent or explode and a non-vented device is a potential bomb in your hand
  • A "well" in the atomizer cap that can collect any liquid that may leak from atomizers
  • Ability to use multiple atomizer models with or without adapters
  • Can use various battery types (we do not recommend unprotected or CR2 batteries)
VaporKings.com carries the Greek made GG line of e-Cigarettes. These are made from high quality 7075 aircraft aluminum and are virtually indestructable. They feature all of the recommendations listed above and are the most classic yet elegant looking units available on the market today.

The GG Telescopic Storm fitted with a 18650 high mAh battery and a 510 atomizer can provide many hours of enjoyable vaping. Some customers report 1 or even 2 days between recharging their batteries. This does however depend on how often you use the device and the condition of both the atomizer and the battery. Older atomizers will draw more current from the batteries and shorten their life between charges.

Higher voltages can deliver a better vaping experience but also bring on more challenges and complications. I'm not saying it isn't good, but it definitely isn't for the beginner.
