I do notice that my cotton lasts longer on a newly built coil, but only a day on a dry-burned one.

    Thanks! I can donate an extra 5 cotton balls for the top price since I kinda intruded!
    I rewick each evening before bed so I hae a fresh wick each morning. It's not uncommon......at least to me. I use unflavored sometimes, but most often a brown tobacco bland, so I rewick each day. After teh dry burn, wait 60 seconds before inserting a new cotton wick, otherwise, the hot coil will start to scorch the wick a bit.

    unflavored. 50/50 12 mg Nic.
    Sometimes to mix it up a bit I just put a couple of drops of flavoring into my 3ml juice bottle and fill. Just dry burn and try another flavor or non flavor the next fill up.

    I don't got for photo perfect coils, and I found I like a little gap also. Especially for cotton...since this contest would need to be in "hours" not "days" for me to compete. A little spacing helps me keep the center wet since I lack patience and often forget to let it wick properly.
