    You can take the glass off, makes threading easier. You might have to re-wick mid tank though.

    Some use the twisty method.

    That's exactly the video I had been following! And having zero success with :(

    Following your advice at present though, so far so good

    How would you rate the tank flavourwise against anything else? My go to is a Kayfun V5 or a Rose V3

    I've got the exact same Origen on the way from China @f1erce and I've decided to go with mesh and cotton as per this old Rip Tripper video.



    The air hole needs to be lined up with the coil.

    Well that's a whole brave new world

    How does the juice get up to the coil? Or does it not need to?

    They are capable of equaling a Kayfun5, maybe even surpassing with two coils. I would say also surpassing when used with mesh for tobaccos.

    I'm not sure about that Rip Trippers method, I tried it once wasn't amazing. I use mesh for the real cotton/coil gunkers, and reintroducing cotton seems to render that pointless.

    I use the large holes, with a 3.5mm straw-in-straw. The outer of #200 and the inner of #200sf. I cut the bottom at a 45° angle. There are two schools of thought with mesh: the tank needs to be able to breathe. That can either happen around the wick, or down the centre of the wick. I like really wide wicks that can breathe down the centre. I'm in a minority though.

    Capillary action I believe - all new to me as well.

    I tend to agree. I'm hoping eventually to do away with the need to rewick when changing juice - just a dry burn and wash and leave to dry. Is this possible using just mesh ?

    Absolutely. I've been using the same setup for 6 months in my Le Zephr

    Interesting. As well as the Origen I also ordered the SJMY Le Zephyr from Fasttech, so I'll be driving myself insane fiddling with mesh in the near future. https://www.fasttech.com/product/5992300

    I liked the look of the simple clear deck on the Le Zephyr, a bit like the AC9 that Rip was showing in the video.

    I was about to give up on mesh. Couldn't get on the the Nextgen or Nextiny. So I figured I'd use something that could use cotton if mesh didn't work out. I made my first wick using the bar that comes with it, still using it now. Never had a dry hit. Only gennie I trust out of the house. I don't think I ever put cotton in it. I did buy an ultem tank for it, so I could see how much juice I had....

    Big wicks FTW!
