    Need Help with adapter for 808D batteries

    I have some 808D auto batteries (not the skinny cigalike ones, they look a bit like egos) which I love, but buying stuff from the US is expensive so I want to try clearomisers or tanks with replaceable coils.

    Trouble is, it's been a long time since I bought anything other than my 808D threaded stuff and I can't work out whether there are clearos that are 808D thread or whether I need to buy an adapter, and if so, what type? It used to be that 510 thread was pretty much the norm, now I see adapters that are 510 - Ego but I thought egos were 510 thread? Most of the adapters I see look male-male, rather than male-female.

    Anyone able to help me with this?

    Yes that looks like the one I used to have - I buy my stuff from V4L actually. So if 510 thread is still the norm, what are egos? The ones I had were 510.

    Ahh, so egos are just 510 then?

    Quite possibly! I did that sort of thing a lot - I had more $$ back then!
    If you still have that adapter, would you be prepared to sell to me? Buying from V4L means a couple of weeks to get here & $25 USD flat-rate shipping.

    Indeed!

    The "eGo cone thread" is just an additional external bit to the regular 510 thread.



    Although it was mainly used for "beauty rings" on narrower stick type batteries (like eGo batteries), there were a few attys that attached via only the eGo threads back in the day (the old Kanger T2 clearos leap to mind).

    It's not much of a consideration these days - eGo threading died out quite a few years ago when 22mm mods (and then later box mods) became more popular. If you're looking at having a muck about with some newer stuff - it's 99.9% 510 connections (as you've already realized ).

    Well then I am going to need that 808D - 510 adapter. I am such a vaping dinosaur - I love my full-time 5v auto batteries & cartomizer style cartridge with a stiff draw. When I tried egos and even provari with tanks I felt like I was drinking the juice because I suck so hard lol.

    Hmm.... yeah, that's a gap in the current market all right!

    There are modern clearo tanks with replaceable heads that do have a tighter draw (check out the "Mouth to Lung" thread if you haven't already)... but finding a native 510 battery that is both auto and does 5v? That's difficult.

    There are a plethora of options in all shapes and sizes that meet the 5v need (and well beyond that) but they're all manual. When the 510 connector "won" so to speak, I think "manual" batteries won by default... probably because the auto switches in the Joyetech 510's were a bit crap .
    These things.
