RE: What is the best wicking material
I get them from local shops that make them.  I don't buy the "prefab" juices where I don't know what's in them.

Remind one liberal per day, that laws affect only the law-abiding.

I don't add sweetner to my DIY juices but I'm very picky with taste when it falls of just a little I dry burn, rinse and re-wick. I do tend to get at least a couple of months out of my coils.

Keep Calm and Vape On!

RE: What is the best wicking material
Ditto Mike. My cotton far outlasts the light settle-back that ends up driving me to re-wick. In my case, I believe it is due to my vaping style. I use builds best suited for high power because I actually prefer the longer ramp up, but this leads to a deck with more latent heat that tends to 'caramelize' the settle-back vapor left when the draw is done. I'll likely never find a solution.

But, it is 100x worse with sweetener-infused juices though.

RE: What is the best wicking material
I don't use sweeteners and I MTL. My coils last an average of 6 months - the coils in my 13/9 and Hobo3 are nearly a year old[Image: tongue.gif]. I wick about once every 3 weeks - it is not really needed but has become a habit.

Must. Be. Nice!!! I get similar coil longevity, but no way can I get weeks out of the cotton. I wish!
