Does this have Stainless Steel 510 threads?
I ask because someone had to install SKU 2245601 because he said his threads got "junked up". I'm assuming he means "stripped". 510 Connector Junked Up

Makes me think it must be something other than SS because I have never had a SS 510 that got stripped - they're all still buttery smooth and most of them are at least a year old. That includes an iStick 30W

No, I think they are plated brass. One of mine is now showing a suspiciously brownish colour in one area where the plating seems to be wearing off. Completely failed to get a decent photo, will try again tomorrow in natural light.

I have had no problems with my 2 Pico’s 510. From their website…


510 Spring Connector

It also retains stainless steel spring loaded 510 connector for strong wear resistance and high adaptability

I did a scratch test. It's SS. No idea of grade. It's softer than 18/10 so it probably has more nickel and less chromium.

Hello, vapeluvr.

The 510 connector part is stainless steel.

Thank you. :)
