RE: Cotton Wick and Coil life
Welcome to The Vaping Forum Rob!

Congrats on getting your tank buddy, here's a very handy coil calculator to give you a helping hand. http://coiltoy.ermeso.com/ you might find it useful.

Depending on the wire you should get a decent life out of a rebuildable coil. Thicker wires generally last longer, and the great thing about DIY coils is that you can just pull out the wicking, dryburn them and rewick and you're good to go again.

If you're going to be using the replaceable coils I'm not too sure how long they'll last but from seeing the design characteristics and the sheer size, I think you'll get a really decent life out of them. Also if you want to go down the route of attempting to re-coil one yourself, it doesn't look like it would be hard to do at all. 

Let us know how it works out for you Good
