A 2015 estimate suggested that Malaysia had as many as 1 million vapers and that the Malaysian vaping market had become one of the world’s largest. One side effect of Malaysia’s vaping boom is an explosion of Malaysian e-liquid companies – many of which now ship their products worldwide.

If you’re really into tinkering with your coil designs to alter the vaping experience, though, you should know that there’s a lot more to atomizer building than the coil itself. Changing your wick material can have a drastic effect on flavour, vapour production and your device’s ability to sustain long puffs – and when you move past cotton, you’ll find that there is a wide array of alternative wick materials from which to choose. Let’s learn more about the alternative wick materials for coil building and find out how they can affect your vaping experience.
