How often do you re-wick?
Dusted off my phoenix ss from vapethings tonight after a bad run of cartos and after a year of vaping I finally get atomisers!

So while I'm sitting here enjoying this thing my mind turns to re-wicking and how long the supplied one will last, thought I would ask you good people....are we talking days, weeks, months?

Cheers, Sean.

RE: How often do you re-wick?
how long is a piece of string?

it depends on the juice you're vaping, the type of wick you're using, the wattage you're vaping at, etc etc

I generally do a dry burn every morning to clean the gunk off the coil that's left from my highbrow vapour juices and I change the wick/coil every 4-5 days on average but no real rule to it, whenever I feel like changing it I do.. it only takes a few seconds

RE: How often do you re-wick?
It usually depends on the juice , or even how much is vaped , I usually do my drippers every 2-3 days after maybe 10 ml, but there's no hard and fast rule , I sometimes just re do them for the fun of it to pass the time and have a faff about Smiling

RE: How often do you re-wick?
As a heavy vapour, once a week does it for me. But it does depend on the juice.

RE: How often do you re-wick?
I don't have what u have, but for me i grab my scissors about once a week - depending on what juices i'm currently blasting on my rda.

Re: How often do you re-wick?
It really is impossible to say... So many variables involved.

I've got a mesh wick in my clockworks RDA that has been getting daily use for almost 3 months now...

But I've also got an ERA that needs rewicking every week...

Cheers for the replies. Only asking because I've got it in my head that it will be a pain in the arse even though rationally I know it should be easy. Was also hoping the answers would be more weeks/months rather than days!

It's really easy , once you've done it you will wonder what the fuss was about

Doesn't take long to rewick an rda... While waiting for the kettle to boil... or during a commercial break! :-)
