So much of our vape experience centres on mods and coils, batteries, and atomizers etc and the debate has always been on what the best wicking material is.
Generally the trend has stabilised now and pretty much the best all rounder and value for money is cotton.
And Cotton is Cotton yeah?
Well yessssss and No! The fact is, in all walks of life there are different types of cotton which do different jobs, and different grades of cotton within those types.
Native wicks took a good long hard look at things and have settled on a PIMA cotton, which is an older style that is categorised by being an ELS cotton. ELS stands for Extra Length Staple. This mean that each actual cotton fibre is longer than many more modern varieties, it is also harder to process, and has to be roller gilled ( a textile process) which brings all the fibres into alignment. This is crucial for spinning fine strong cotton yarn for textiles, and for vapers brings with it the added better wicking characteristics we all seek. Now I could get all “sciencey” on yer arse and give you a lecture on capillary action etc but that would just bore you to death.
Suffice to say its that capillary action that transfers all that juice to the hot bits … if your wick has fibres that go round ‘n’ round or are short and terminated, then the juice gets “lost” on the way. A pack of cotton balls from the chemist might be cheap, but the cotton in them hasn’t been selected for any other quality apart from the fact it is cheap and bleached!
