    Hey guys, just thought I'd share how I wick my coils with cotton. I've been getting good feedback from people that are now wicking this way. Let me know what ya think!



    I'm a part of a group called Cloud Chasers Inc now and we have been doing videos like these and plan to do more. We cover everything from battery safety to battery vent tests (please do not try it yourself).

    Excellent. I wick very similar minus the cloud and U; I'll give that a shot next go. Many say cotton wicks expand but a fluffy wick can collapse; especially larger wicks like 3/32". I also pack coil fairly snug so wick doesn't collapse. If wick collapses or is just too loose, as determined by off taste or burning, I use a needle threader to pull a little more cotton through coil. I have also pulled a few strands out of a choking/burning wick w/o needing to rewick. Smaller 1/16" coils seem more sensitive to exact wick compression in coil. All about finding the perfect snugness in the coil.

    I am collecting spent batts and plan some don't do this at home batt vent tests from a safe distance. I plan to use car batt to excite the batt and check for venting. I am anxious to see your vent tests.

    Thanks for the support! We have begun doing these videos to help ease some of the irrational fear surrounding sub-ohming. We aren't trying to make it look like the safest thing in the world, rather we want to educate so people understand that it's not as dangerous as some people irrationally think. We even obtained data/test sheets from battery vendors like Sony, Efest, and LG. These sheets show us the exact specifications and capabilities of these batteries as well as the extension quality control testing that they do such as compression damage and drop tests. Fascinating stuff.

    Good job. I see thread after thread about sub-ohm fear mongering and every now and again a thread where cigalike or cigaralike batt actually exploded. Usually on the charger. People should also have a dose of respect and take safety precautions for their cigalike batts which may be a less safe chemistry.

    When do you plan to film some batt vent attempts?

    Be safe and vape.

    I used to live in 11 story apartment at corner of !-75 and 11 mile. It was east of I-75 and south of 11 mile. Wonder if it's still there and if 11 mile is still safe. 8 mile was a little rough back in the day.
