    I know what you mean bombastinator, I could only get 240 Muji pads at a reasonable price. At least they'll last me long enough to work out how to get an Ammit 25 wicked and working well, with optional flavour.

    Still got to learn the Scottish Roll technique, maybe it may help. Unfortunately it's finding the time, space and tools though.

    And sounds like you could use something like one of those Peli micro cases, just big enough to put some vape supplies and tools for times of need when you're out and about.

    I wish. Lately it’s been a legend with an aromamizer plus on it, a pair of batteries in a case, a bottle of juice, and as of today, a spare prewicked aromamizer plus deck in a little plastic box. Bulging pockets.

    If I've been somewhere where it's been difficult to get specialist stuff, I've just used ordinary cotton balls unwound/unrolled by me - and it worked just fine.

    Before I go away now, I make up 6 -12 simple 1.0hm coils ( which is what I use anyway ( and I use a 2mm crochet hook to wind them round ) and some times even prewick them - if you aways use the same things you can literally knock them out on autopilot.

    Single battery boxes are also great for carrying these with a miniature screwdriver out of an eyeglasses repair kit "just in case."

    With some squonk boxes you even have room for a spare prewicked coil in a miniature plastic baggie above the bottle and behind the feed tube.

    As you can see, I'm a great believer in cheapo simple solutions!

    bombastinator, you've got to work out a cheap solution to stuffing all your extras in your pockets. It gets uncomfortable.

    But had a look on the Pelican website and saw their G40 case, then saw the price. Nearly $40, and no comes instantly to mind.

    I don’t have a preference in terms of performance but will say Muji is my most used. The pads are consistent which can allow for a more precise cut allowing for a more consistent wick time after time. I do remove the outer layer. Also tried the Scottish Roll….see no benefit to this and feel it does ad a level of inconsistency. But that is cool if this is a technique you employ.

    Using duplicates of identical hardware, ie: mod and atomizer, along with identical settings and juice flavour, I have conducted blind tests and I have found no difference between Muji, Wotofo (for the Profile Mesh) and Rayon. Have found Cotton Bacon and FireBolt have a slight break in but once past that, flavour is identical to Muji,

    As for longevity – for a typical coil I feel Rayon takes that crown. For mesh (the Profile), I feel Rayon looses too much of its density over an extended period of time which result in voids between the wick and mesh that can lead to dry burns. So I feel cotton is the winner here.

    In the end one has to be comfortable and consistent with what they are using. Nail the consistency and you will always have a well wicked atty.

    As an "Auld Ga'in' aboot Man" as we call a Aged Traveller in Scotland, I do so love a simple solution... as Kayagm put it - "Myself when young did eagerly frequent the door of Doctor and Saint, and heard much argument about it and about, but ever I went out the door as in I went!"

    Aye - What @Mordacai said.
    Need to get the outer layers off.

    Also agree with the Scottish roll method being a tad inconsistent sometimes.
    It helps if you nail it spot on, it screws things up if you dont.

    As always, everyone's mileage may vary.
