This bamboo wick material is perfect for use with your rebuildable atomizer, or for those who wish to replace the silica wick material in your vivi nova tank. Very soft and easy to work with.
Come in a 3ft length and measures aprox: 3mm

Tried this out just for kicks. Had to read a lil more before getting it to work. Soaked in boiling water about 5mins, 3 times with new water each time. Wrapped a coils and let it soak up the juice, which took a lil while. Had to tinker with it a bit. Stuffed my Phoenix rda a bit too much, also coils may have been a bit too tight. The more I puff the better it's tasting. Almost right, but a bit more work compared to silica. Still a hint of odd flavor, which works well on the chai juice I'm vaping, or maybe a coffee/tobacco/bakery flavor. Then again I may have not perfected it but I think once I get it right I'll be digging this or cotton vs silica.

Bought this on a whim, having done cotton and silica and thinking this might be "better" or somehow "special"... but it's just another wick that, IMO, I can't tell it from cotton. Boiled it, rinse and repeat.
I like silica... bamboo and cotton may absorb juice a bit faster, and maybe "better"... but they both require extra steps while silica you just use it, and after a few vapes the taste is clean. Maybe it's just me and I can't taste the difference, I don't know. Hell, give it a try, it's not like it's going to break the bank to try it.

I have been contemplating an alternative to silica for the wick in my RDA Octopus. I tried it wihout boiling and regretted my purchase. Then I boiled it in a pyrex measuring cup via the microwave and did one water change - made all the differrence in the world. No scorching or burnt taste and the coils are staying clean! Huge clouds of flavor at 3v and 2ohm.
