HAHA.. ha.. ha
I'm getting a good day out of a single wick. Others report 2 or 3 days.. it's just so fucking easy I can't not swap it out at some point at least once a day though.
Dude, rewicking and coiling genny's was fun for the first couple months when I first got into building coils, then the whole process became loathsome.. it was something I had to fucking plan time around.. time to tear down a genny and clean it up then wrap a new coil around a new wick or at least spend 15 minutes cleaning and dry burning.. it got to a point where the honeymoon was over and it just wasn't fun anymore.
New fucking ballgame with these coils and cotton. The coil in that last pic I posted in this thread will last me weeks (bullshit, I'll get bored with it and do another just for fun, but it COULD last weeks).
The process of rewicking takes about 2 minutes from the point of deciding I want a new wick to the point where I'm ready to blow off some fresh delicious steam with a new wick.
I think I posted some of this in this thread already, oh well.. a little redundancy won't hurt anyone..
Instead of thinking of the coil and wick as one unit where that you must address together this setup is two part. You wrap your coil and install it, get it all nice and tweaked exactly how you want it. Then you twist up your cotton and thread it through. Keep in mind it is REALLY easy and almost universal for first a first time micro coil user to use too much cotton. Less is more. You want the strand to slide in nice and easy, like you're the third guy to thread that wick that night.. um.. lol.
Rewicking goes like this:
- Determine it's time to rewick your coil
- Pluck out the old wick
- Dry burn your wickless coil for 2-3 seconds to clean it off
- Twist up a pinch of 100% cotton and thread it through the coil
- Trim any excess off the wick, you really don't need tails, just a bit poking out each side of the coil
- Saturate your wick and let it soak a minute
- Vape and be happy
Keep in mind the first few tokes off a new wick are gonna be muted, it passes quickly. Also keep in mind if you use too much cottonn the flavor will be muted too, but in that case it doesn't go away. Just pull it out and try again.
If you get this setup going and don't like it then please say something cause you're doing something wrong
Vapdivrr (leader of the the fc-2000 clan) recently fell for the REO and has said there's nothing like it. DWcraig1 (started the oddy clone thread) just joined the bandwagon too. There was another guy in the REO subforum that did a 48hr test and wrote up a huge, very intelligible, explanation about why he must be the oddball because he didn't think it was awesome at all.. turns out he was using too much cotton.. lol
I gotta admit, I'm really excited for you to try it. I look forward to seeing what you think about the ugly duckling. Although I'm REALLY not looking forward to witness protection, I'll miss my family. lmao
