The Joyetech eGo 510 is somewhat of a hybrid pod kit that covers the refillable and disposable vape side of the market.

The device features a 510 thread and can be used with either a refillable pod or two pre-filled disposable pods (2ml/4.5ml).

The eGo 510 features an 850mAh battery and can be charged via USB-C.

The refillable pod has an ml capacity, utilizes a top fill method, and contains a 0.8Ω mesh coil.

The pre-filled pod range comes in 18 flavors (see below), with some interesting offerings in the mix.

The Joyetech eGo 510 comes in 5 colors, lime green, cyan blue, red, black, and white.

Design & Style

If you’ve been in the vape industry for a while, there’s a good chance you will remember the ‘eGo’ name. It was a name that started the 510 threading on vape devices that we still use today.

Joyetech was also one of the most prominent players when it came to vape starter kits. So it’s good to see them back to their roots but in a more modern way.

The eGo 510 is quite a different little pod kit. It utilizes a 510 thread on the top so that it can be used with any 510-threaded atomizer. 

Joyetech eGo 510 Thread

It comes with either a refillable pod or pre-filled pods that are both attached via the 510 threading.

The device itself is lightweight and compact and is 22mm in diameter. It’s also a straightforward device with only the fire button, an LED light, and a USB-C port for charging.

I can’t knock the device for not feeling particularly premium in its materials because that’s not its target demographic. On the other hand, the eGo 510 is an incredibly affordable kit that’s set to come in cheaper than most pod kits on the market.

The eGo 510 can be purchased with either the refillable pod or with pre-filled pods. We have a complete kit with both, but I’m sure whether it will be available to consumers.

Joyetech eGo 510 USB Port

The 2ml capacity refillable pod features a 0.8Ω mesh coil. It has a nice top-fill method where you twist the top toward the unlock symbol, and the cap lifts off to reveal the fill port.

I noticed you could also do the same with the pre-filled pods. However, instead of the coil inside, you see the large sponge/cotton that soaks up all the pre-filled juice. You would also have to fill it with the same flavor; otherwise, it would taste a bit funny.

The refillable pod and the pre-filled pods do not feature a removable drip tip. Instead, it’s completely integrated into the pod. 

There is also no adjustable airflow on the device or pods, and it is very much tailored to MTL vaping. 

Joyetech eGo 510 re-fillable Pods

Another thing to note is due to the nature of using a 510 thread for the connection; there is also no auto-draw firing. The only way to use the device is through the fire button.

There’s not much else to say about the design and style of the device. It’s very simple and easy to use, but sadly so are its looks. However, for such an affordable device, I certainly have no complaints.

There are 20 flavors in total for both the 2ml and 4.5ml pods. Below are some quick notes on each flavor in the range:


Joyetech eGo 510 Lemonade Kiwi

Lemon Kiwi

A slightly weak Lemonade flavor with no real Kiwi coming through.

Joyetech eGo 510 Strawberry Kiwi

Strawberry Kiwi

The Kiwi is definitely present in this one, even more so than the Strawberry.

Joyetech eGo 510 Blue Raspberry

Blue Raspberry

A very light and subtle Blue Raspberry vape.

Joyetech eGo 510 Vitamix


This one tastes like Vitamin C tablets or an orange vitamin drink. It has that slight medicinal taste. However, I really quite like it.

Joyetech eGo 510 Energy Drink

Energy Drink

Not as sickly as some Energy drink flavors, but it’s okay.

Joyetech eGo 510 Pineapple Ice

Pineapple Ice

I may have had a bad pod here because this tasted like burnt Pineapple with no ice whatsoever.

Joyetech eGo 510 Coffee Ice Cream

Coffee Ice Cream

Another one I enjoyed. It’s a good mix of Coffee with creamy Ice Cream that reminded me of a light Tiramisu.

Joyetech eGo 510 Guava


Another one that may have been a bad pod. I couldn’t taste any real Guava. It just has a weird, not very pleasant taste overall.

Joyetech eGo 510 Double Apple

Double Apple

This took a while to get going, but eventually, Apple came through – Okay. 

Joyetech eGo 510 Peach Mango

Peach Mango

This was another quite pleasing fruity vape. A little difficult to distinguish the individual Peach and Mango, but a nice fruit vape.

Joyetech eGo 510 Cherry


Another that took a few puffs to get going. Eventually delivered a subtle Cherry flavor.

Joyetech eGo 510 Grape


Another very subtle one with the Grape coming through, but not enough to satisfy.

Joyetech eGo 510 Cotton Candy

Cotton Candy

Another strange one that’s very nondescript. Didn’t really taste like Candy or Sweets. Just has a bit of a ‘Meh’ taste really.

Joyetech eGo 510 Mint


A decent Mint flavor that was more flavorful than most others in this range and quite refreshing.

Joyetech eGo 510 Virginia Classic

Virginia Classic

Not the best Tobacco I’ve tried. It’s very subtle and leaves you with a weird aftertaste.

Joyetech eGo 510 Watermelon Ice

Watermelon Ice

Disappointing. There’s a slight Watermelon taste, but it also has a strange earthy quality to it.

Performance & Verdict

I’m a little disappointed with the overall performance of the eGo 510, but it’s not all bad.

The device itself is easy to use, compact and lightweight. The battery fires relatively instantly and does a decent job of lasting with the 850mAh capacity.

Its charging times are a little slow as it’s only 1A charging and takes about an hour to charge fully.

My main issues with the kit come with the lack of adjustable airflow and power adjustment.

Joyetech eGo 510

I’m not saying a kit like this requires both. However, it seems like the eGo 510 fires toward the top of its 14-18W range, but the airflow is a little too tight to make the most of it.

I would’ve preferred slightly less power with the tight draw or a more open draw with that power.

I like that there are two capacity options for the pre-filled pods, which covers the TPD areas (2ml) and everywhere else.

However, I must be honest; the flavor delivered from most of the pods was only okay, and certainly not as exciting and moreish as some of the best disposables on the market.

There were some good ones in the range, like the ‘Vitamix,’ ‘Mint’ or ‘Coffee Ice Cream.’ However, they took a good few puffs to really get going and for the flavor to start coming through.

Joyetech eGo 510

There were also some pretty bad ones in there. I’m putting that down to bad pods. Either way not really the best experience with the pre-filled pods. 

The experience is much better when using your own e-liquid in the refillable pod. In addition, it delivered a better quality vape experience with the 0.8Ω mesh.

I also think the top-fill method is great, and there’s no leaking whatsoever. I just wish I could adjust the airflow or power when using this pod.

I’m not saying the eGo 510 is a bad device. In fact, it’s perfectly fine for beginner vapers, especially at such a low entry point. 

However, if like me, you have found memories of eGo devices but are used to vaping today’s best pod mods and disposables – it sadly falls a little short.


The eGo 510 is a versatile pod kit that can be used with pre-filled or refillable pods. It's a simple device that's easy to use and highly affordable, so it would suit beginners. However, there are far better-performing devices on the market.
