What wicking material are you now using now that the company closed down?

I have all exhausted my 40-pack strips that I bought back in 2016.

I'm out of wicks now and is just using Koh gen do organic cotton, it has a terrible break in period of maybe 5ml to 15ml(varies per flavor profile, fruity has the shortest break in).

I actually do one or two wettings of a apple or pear juice on Koh gen do (like 0.25ml or so) to break it in. Then I turn to the juice I want.

But I mostly use cotton bacon V2 or rayon.

I switched to rayon/viscose and never go back to cotton again. I had to buy 1Kg so I'm never going to run out of wick material. :)

I've tried CelluCotton, and it indeed wicks even faster than cotton. However, there is a slightly more pronounced "taste" that goes away quickly.

Good for rdtas, and CelluCotton comes in a handy dispenser box in a good precut size for vaping! Check out your local Beauty Supply store, it's worth checking out..

However, it is synthetic, not all-natural like cotton. Some would argue natural is always better, but it does wick well.

I haven't tried Cellucotton, I might try one of these days... The pads I use has that earthy and seedy(something the same taste of those boiled peanuts or beans).

What code on the top right of the cellucotton box is the most suitable for vaping use?

I couldn't tell you anything like that, as I use cotton again and my experimenting days with wicking is long over. As to my recollection, there was only one option to purchase. I don't remember thinking "which one?, ya know?"

Sorry I cant be of more help, but honestly, cotton is better overall. If you even get close to a dry hit, cellucotton melts inside the coil, separating it into two pieces and causing immediate flooding/poor taste. At least with cotton, you get burning taste before the cotton burns in half.

Thanks, I've searched on the forums - the numbering doesn't matter so long as I get 100% Rayon.

This is the one to use.

Bought a large box at a beauty supply place about 3+ years ago and still only 1/5th the way though, IF that!

Think I paid...hmm, if I recall correctly, about $15 then? If even that?




If you even get close to a dry hit, cellucotton melts inside the coil, separating it into two pieces and causing immediate flooding/poor taste. At least with cotton, you get burning taste before the cotton burns in half.



Never had a dry hit, never had it separated in two pieces, flooding, poor taste, etc.
I used Fibre Freaks beforehand and honestly, its the same to me other than the style of roll.

Only atomizer I use whereby I believe cotton might have been a better choice is the QP Fatality 25. I find on that one unlike all others i own, that i must change the cellucotton a bit more often. I feel it thins out a bit after a period of time unlike cotton but all other atomizers I own I prefer it to cotton.
