    how often do you swap cotton?

    using ripple for my wicks, how often are you swapping it out? i'm finding more than a couple of days and it's toast. even if i don't change juice as all.

    it's not a problem, it takes seconds to do, just sometimes i do miss the weeks i'd get out of a nice bit of ekowool.

    Change my cotton every second day. Can't go any longer. Is a little annoying pulling apart the kayfun.

    really depends on the juice your using i guess. I'm using a pretty clean juice, green apple menthol and its lasting 2-3 weeks if i keep it nice and moist.



    2x SS GGTS, 2x GGTS, 2x UFS, 2x Ody + extension kit, 2x GG Slim, GGTB, 2x Provari, Reo Grand Kicked, 2 x cyclone with AFC, ERA RBA, 2x Quasar, 2x Tohb, 2x Zenith V2, Nemesis, Hades, Supermax, Copper Black Stingray JiB box mod and so much more

    Just using cotton balls myself ( in KFL with micro contact coil ) was changing every 2 days... but forgot and when I went to change it after 3 it really was like all joined together with the coil
    Had real trouble getting it out ...Live and learn..

    I'm running cotton I'm my kayfun light and I'm changing it once a week. I have one juice that I have to change it after the second tank.

    I've started changing these after 2 - 3 days now.
    However I did have one that lasted me 2 weeks ... god knows why ?

    I am thinking it must be the thickness of the wick.

    Here's my 2 cents:
    I think the thicker the wick, it presses harder against the coil ... so in process builds up more gunk.

    now trying out making thinner wicks

    I replace the wick in my Igo-W every night. I vape sweet & gunky juices, if I don't change it in 2 days the wick will look like it's been pulled out of someone's ass.

    yeah, the coil i have in my dripper is very small. wrapped around a 00 screwdriver. the wick rarely comes out in one peice. but the dry burn takes care of anything left over...
