    Invention from necessity...I am just trying to keep up with the Reo guys...;

    SS mesh can be a pain to set-up. The learning curve can be steep and frustrating. Ive been using ceramic mainly for the last half year and I really cant go back to SS. I can taste the metal now when I vape. So yes..cotton wicks are a good thing, very clean and flavorful. In a micro-coil, the cottony taste goes away very quickly and the change-outs are breeze..like you said it only takes about a minute to pull the old one and re-wick a new one.. I look back when I was rebuilding Vivi Novas. The cotton wick rebuild vaped fantastic, but it was a pain in xzz to do them and time consuming, This is the poster child for easy-peasy.

    So I really only just started these cotton micro coils in a genny, and I dont have a good benchmark for you. When I rebuilt Vivi Nova's with cotton, the wicks can last anywhere from 2 days to a week.

    I have 3 genny style ATA-T2’s and have been Shizzing around
    with them sense day 1. I made two super skinny ss-mesh
    wicks and had a successful life span of 10 days with them,
    dual mini-coil and then the same ole thing 10 days later,

    One hit it’s flooded, next hit it’s dry, next hit might be OK, %$#@!!%$#!!
    How can something so similar to a bottom feeder be so
    temperamental. I never know from one hit to the next
    what kind of e-cig I am puffing. My single coil Genny is more
    Stable but still only makes it down the road one week before
    It starts circling the drain. And goes to the sharts.
    Maybe a quick wick change every 2 days and leave the coil
    alone for a month is possible with your setup.

    Now only if I can change the cotton wick in a minute and not 3 hours
    and two pairs of bi-focals I may be happy.
    My disappointment in these ATA style tanks is if you look
    at a bottom feeder and look at a genny tank, their similarities
    are profound. You have juice on the bottom and a wick and
    coil up top on both. But why does the gennies have to be such
    a pile of cylindrical bile is beyond me.

    How long does your cotton wick last?
    How long does it take you to change them out?

    Stainless wicks are too finicky to carry through a work day for me. RDA's are much more forgiving for a mechanic.
    Never had a problem with sub coils on the same exact wick. I tried moving it up and down, rotating it, moving the coil up and down on the wick, nothing works except removing so much of the coil that I'm basically left with 1 or 2 wraps, then it glows even lol

    Turn it upside down, place it on something with a hole in it so the cap suts flat, put a small nail into the backside of the hole w/ the post and beat the hell out of it until it pops out

    And to stay on topic, just another boring dual micro on my cyclone

    BEEEUTIFULLL!

    Inspired me to try a dual on one of my 804s. (I hadn't wrapped a coil for a few days anyway lol.) It's a 1/16th inch dual 7/8 wrap of side be side 32ga kanthal that came in at 1.1 ohms. Wicked it with cheese cloth and set aside to soak. I figure it'll be to warm to suit me, but I wanted to go low and see what my bottom limits were anyway. I can always work up from there.

    I normally like lower wattage but it dawned on me that I'd never tried higher wattage with my 804s.

    hey gdeal, been vaping on the reo now for over a week now. this is the real deal brother. the reo along with a reomizer and a micro coil& cotton is just blowing the doors off of anything I have ever vaped.

    You should just manufacture them. I'm sure you could do it.
