[Pronunciation: wick/wɪk/]


A wick is a piece of material used to deliver e-liquid to the coil or coils in order for it to be heated and vaporized. Wicks have been made out of a variety of materials over the years, from silica and cotton to stainless steel mesh and ceramic rods. Each wicking material has it’s own characteristics as well as offering it’s own advantages and disadvantages. Many materials have come into and gone out of fashion among DIY coil builders and rebuildable users.

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.
