Mesh Wick

A mesh wick is a wick commonly seen on genesis style tanks (genny tanks). Mesh wicks are made from stainless steel mesh that has been wrapped into a thin tube. The stainless steel is generally burnt using a butane torch to before use to allow a build up of soot to help insulate it from the coil and the build deck of the topper itself and to reduce the chance of hot spots and short circuits.

Mesh wicks should only be used by experienced builder who know what they’re doing and know how to diagnose and fix the issues that may arise from using mesh.

Not to be confused with mesh coils, to read more about these, see the mesh coil entry.

Currently located in Sydney, Australia, I have been vaping since 2009 and became active in the e-cigarette industry in late 2015. Since then I’ve had the pleasure of visiting over 700 shops in 6 countries.
