ego-c atmomizer wick
« on: May 09, 2013, 04:16:55 PM »
I have said e-cig, and i read on forums about making a replacement wick with 100% cotton yarn, I was wondering if i need to pull the yarn apart or just use the whole strand (diameter wise) also how long should i make it? does it need to touch the burner?

Are you sure?? making an ego-c wick with cotton yarn??
I have never heard of this, but if you're intent on giving it a go,
just dont let the wick get dry at any stage, it will burn.

And I would say use what will fit... if it doesn't fit whole, then pull
it apart till you get something that fits.

Do you think that the wick should be super snug or loose?

Well I would imagine that too loose will cause the coil to flood,
too snug and it won't wick fast enough... So you're going to need
something in between.
