    To all electronic guys out there: 510 Adapter Section

    Question:

    So heres the goal...If I was to build a screw on 510 adapter like for example one that would fit a UFS
    how would the cross section look like?

    I did a simple section of how i think it would be, but my skills in electronics is crap.
    I would really appreciate it if someone would be kind enough to have a look at my drawing and let me know what you think.
    is it totally stupid?
    is it close?
    did i just drew a pipe bomb diagram?
    am I missing something completely?

    thanks all!


    (pardon my CAD work as ive not used CAD for years now)

    Just a quick bo-peep, but is the centre pin in the adapter electrically insulated from negative? It doesn't appear to be (assuming the M7x0.5 is metal).

    Edit: Other than that, it generally looks feasible (I take it one of the centre pins is adjustable)

    just a quick look,
    you need an insulator tound the centre pin in the 510 base to totally isolate it from the threaded section

    Again, on the same part - how are you going to assemble it?

    I'd look at machining the 510 thread as part of the base with a straight tube through for a press fit insulator and floating centre pin

    Yeah, or even as a separate part press fit into the housing if your concerned about machining it in one piece. But D1g's advice is a better solution but I'd use a sliding fit collared insulator, with the collar facing the battery..
