    Show Us Your Wick

    There's a lot of talk of wattage, builds, ohms, nic & flavours but how about our old mate wick?

    Tips and tricks?

    What I do, and I'm probably doing it wrong - I make a fine thread into the coild and then i pack the cotton under & next to the coil without fussing much about covering the rest of the deck. (below is how i've been doing it...wick isn't new obviously)

    Anyone got some tips or tricks to getting the best vape and reducing surprise dry hits?

    Wicks in my 26650 Zephyr Buddha; Simple through and down into the well






    Wicks in my TOBH V2.5 clone; Very short wicks, nothing touching the deck and tails draped over the negative posts.

    Wet wicks club.

    Just wondering if anyone has a preference to a dense thread of cotton through the coil or a fine roll? Anyone noticed much of a difference in flavour or vapour?

    Uhm, different build require different amounts of wick.. I'm usually really low; 0.04 - 0.11 and at that heat cotton seems to sag and collapse much faster than the higher ohms, so I need to use much more cotton, so if and when it does collapse there's still a generous amount of cotton touching the coil.

    If you're at something higher, like 0.5 and up, then you pull the cotton through until you feel some resistance and then a bit more, or something like that.. I'm not sure, but watching Twisted420's he puts shit all in his coils..

    But main point is, the lower or hotter the coils are, the more cotton you'll need through the coils.

    Up and over for me.

    I love that you can just pull your top cap, drip right in the middle and have the juice flow down evenly onto both coils.
