While most customers prefer to purchase our SOURCE orb Premium Kit, some prefer to do a build-your-own-vape pen. This is done by selecting your own attachment, battery, and pairing it with a charger. Some customers have gone as far as to buy their own SOURCE orb body parts and paired them with a five pack of atomizers.
Choosing the Right Battery
All SOURCEvapes attachments are for use with an eGo threaded battery. For clarification on the difference between eGo and 510 threading. If you already have a 510 battery, a 510 to eGo threading adapter usually works to make your battery work with SOURCEvapes attachments.
SOURCE orb variable voltage
If you are looking for a sleek and slim battery, our SOURCE orb variable voltage battery is a great choice. It is eGo threaded, has a capacity of 650mah, and a voltage range of 3.2 Volts to 4.8 Volts. The battery dimensions are:
Diameter : 14.2mm
Battery Life Cycle: 300-360 charges
SOURCE big rig has become a favorite among our build your own vape pen customers. Also 510 ego threaded, it has an enhanced capacity of 2600mah, and a voltage range of 3.2 Volts to 4.8 Volts. The battery dimensions are:
Diameter : 20mm
Weight : 100g
Battery Life Cycle: 300-360 charges
Available in Black Chrome, Royal Gold, Chrome, and Black, SOURCE big rig is 3x the weight as the SOURCE orb variable voltage battery, but most build your own customers still prefer it due to the 4x battery capacity.
A charger should also be purchased with your battery.
Choosing the Perfect Attachment
It should be noted that SOURCEvapes has made its SOURCE orb atomizers compatible over all of our vape pen attachments. This means even if you choose to purchase another attachment later, you can still use the atomizers that came with your first attachment. All of our attachments come with wickless atomizers, which is by far the preferred version based on atomizer purchase histories. Wickless atomizers are recommended for most high quality, stable essential oils. For runny essential oils, we do offer wicked SOURCE orb atomizers, available in packs of 5. All of our attachment are 510 ego threaded.
SOURCE orb v2
Our most popular attachment is the SOURCE orb. It features a nearly unbreakable, stainless steel body. It comes with four atomizers: 3x ceramic double coil and 1x SOURCE terra. There is a lifetime warranty on the body. The ceramic double coil offers the hardest hit, while SOURCE terra is a low temp, pure tasting hit. SOURCE orb v2 also offers the most direct airflow of any of our atomizers with four 2mm holes, offering 200% more airflow than SOURCE orb v1.
SOURCE globe v3
With thick, quality glass and a carb, SOURCE globe v3 gives a powerful hit that you can see. Being able to use the carb is preferred by some customers, and allows you to build up a large hit within the chamber before releasing the carb and inhaling. It comes with four atomizers: 2x SOURCE orb ceramic single coil atmoizers, 1x SOURCE orb ceramic double coil atomizer, and 1x SOURCE terra atomizer. Single coil atomizers will offer a harder hit than SOURCE terra, but less harsh than double coil ceramic.
SOURCE bubbler is a standalone water perculator attachment that includes two atomizers. It includes 1x ceramic double coil atomizer and 1x hitter atomizer. By filtering through water, the SOURCE bubbler offers a smooth hit for essential oils while still delivering volumes of vapor off of the ceramic double coil atomizer. You can buy mouthpieces here, which some customers prefer.
Most Popular Combinations
The two most popular combinations among our customers for build-your-own kits are the following:
- SOURCE orb v2, SOURCE big rig and a SOURCEvapes charger.
- SOURCE globe, SOURCE big rig and a SOURCEvapes charger.
It's really up to personal preference.
When it comes to vape pen attachments, if you are looking for durability, SOURCE orb v2 is the go-to choice. If you want to see your hit and love to build up huge hits with the carb, SOURCE globe v3 is for you. If no discretion is needed and you are at home, the water filtering on the SOURCE bubbler can be quite nice. No matter which you choose, your SOURCE orb atomizers will always be compatible with all SOURCEvapes attachments.
When it comes to vape pen batteries, SOURCE big rig packs power for the long haul, while our SOURCE orb variable battery is lighter to carry around.
