Quitting smoking is possible!

You may think that quitting smoking is a total impossibility for you....

I'm going to tell you, that after 30 years of smoking cigarettes, not only is it possible, but I've been cigarette free for days (now over a year!), at the time of this writing!

Here are my LIVE current statistics:

4mm Wick for Wrapping Coils?

So a couple of months ago, I had this genius idea...

Everybody knows that "BIGGER is better", right?

Well that's what I'm told at least...



You can find silica wick in the following dimensions 1mm, 1.5mm, 2mm, 2.5mm, 3mm and even 3.5mm (rarely)...  I wanted to know where the 4mm was hiding!!!


Think about it... 

I rarely see anyone use 1mm...
I rarely see anyone use 3.5mm either...

It was my idea to see, if maybe the elusive and unheard of 4mm could somehow be a "magical" sized wick!  


So let's see what we've got here...

I was thinking, "Gee... Wouldn't it make life easier, if all I had to do was cut a one inch piece of wick, than to get a smaller wick and have to fold it over multiple times and cut it and throw waste wick into the garbage?"  Well that's what I was wondering...

It's concept is really just simple math...

1.0mm folded over once = 2mm
1.5mm folded over once = 3mm
2.5mm folded over once = 5mm

Or is it?

In a 2-dimensional world, it would be....
But in a 3D world, things don't quite work out that way!

Think about it...

If you take a single piece of 4mm wick you have 4mm all the way around....

If I take 2 pieces of 2mm wick, put 'em together, I'd have 4mm on the Y-axis...
If I take 2 pieces of 2mm wick, put 'em together, I'd have 2mm on the Z-axis!

So we're no longer dealing with a CIRCLE, we're now dealing with some kind of spherical-ellipse or possibly a rectangular-cube, I'm not sure!!  I've heard that "math is fun", but when it comes to Vaping, the only math questions that I want to have to think about (on a daily basis) are, "how many ml of Boba's Bounty do I have left?" and "when is the next sale?"!  :)

So what did I LEARN about using a wick with too large of a circumference?  A wick with too large of a diameter, means MORE RESISTANCE WIRE is being used to make each individual wrap.  What does this mean?  Well, it means that if you use a thin gauge wire like 32g, it's gonna take too long to heat up and it won't heat evenly (trust me, 8 tests later).  If you use a thicker gauge wire like a 28g, well.... The wire will get hot enough, but unless you WANT TO do sub-ohm Vaping (I thought I did and later changed my mind), you're going to need to make about 7-8 wraps in order to get a 1.8Ω coil!  When you're using something like a Kayfun, Squid or an IGO-S, you BARELY have enough room to do it!  And quite honestly, unless you like to Vape @ 4.1V, if you want to use a VV/VW APV (Like a VAMO 3), you're going to have to hold your button down too long in order to get a nice even burn throughout the width of your entire coil (again, trust me, 8 tests later)...

In other words, it's just not worth it...

I guess I'll have to look into making a Tiki-Candle that burns Junk eJuice!
Where's that bottle of Hangsen Vitamin A eLiquid....
