    I've had an email from a factory about ceramic wick but they're asking things like...

    "Please tell us use condition, working temperature, detail size and evaporation"

    What's the wick size for the biggest genesis?

    How hot is a dry burn?

    Wick rate?

    Condition wtf? :D
     
  2. 3mm is the biggest I think.

    Use condition would be : Heating up liquid to "boiling" point. Question them, will the ceramic hold up under intense heat. See this video.



    For reference

    a dry burn would be the heat of the coil in ohms....1.6 to 3.0 ohms I would think.

    Wick Rate = Constant

    Next to market? Ceramic wicks with embedded heating coils. It's logical: the question is who will bring it to market and my 'bet' would be one or more of the tobacco companies moving into vaping.

    Did he say "sex on the beach" ?
    sex and beach have a common smell. I thought that it would be a fish flavour, not fruits !!!

    Nah, won't melt, make sure it is away from the wire, only small amount needed = no shorts

    Ahhh didn't realise u were just gonna insulate the hole thought you wanted to put the coil over it no it won't melt if you just do the hole although you'd be just as well buying a ptfe bush for it

    Ok, next question...

    What would be the longest ceramic wick you would need for the biggest atty available?

    Width wise we need 2mm and 3mm I'd say

    Although I'm starting to have flashbacks to my titanium wire experiment :D
