    Hi Ecigssa members, In this review i take a look at my cotton of choice Jellyfish from VAPJOY.

    [​IMG]

    Why A Cotton Review?

    I have tried many brands of cotton and really would buy what ever was on offer as they pretty much all performed the same. Then i got a packet of Jellyfish and since i wouldn't buy anything else so i thought it was worth giving my opinion in a little review.

    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    The Benefits of Jellyfish

    With other cotton it gives off a taste, more so when you first do a build but some of the better cotton i have used you do lose the taste after a short time but with Jellyfish i don't get any cotton taste whatsoever which means i'm getting better flavour from my juice in a build from the off.

    [​IMG]

    Another benefit is the flavour seems to last longer than when I've used other cotton.
    Jellyfish seems to wick very well.

    [​IMG]

    The last benefit I have found is that dreaded dry hit when i don't notice my juice is low, with other cotton after just a couple of dry hits i get a burnt taste from which there is no recovery. Jellyfish seems to withstand more dry hits before getting a burnt taste and the couple of times i did get a bit of a burn't taste once liquid was applied the taste made a full recovery with no lasting burnt taste.

    [​IMG]

    Why I Will Stick With Jellyfish

    Because i test a lot of RDA's and RTA's with fresh builds and one of the most important things is giving my opinion about the flavour you get from the product, finding a cotton that gives no taste is a godsend to me.
    When i'm vaping for pleasure and not testing product i'm just like any other vaper wanting lasting flavour, i get far better results since using Jellyfish cotton.

    [​IMG] [​IMG]
    The Geekvape Zeus with a build using Jellyfish equals long lasting great flavour.

    Pros

    No noticeable taste
    Wicks well
    Withstands more dry hits
    Have known it recover from burnt hits

    [​IMG]

    I get my Jellyfish from Chinese vendors, last time it was from Gearbest and i know Fasttech and Everzon also sell it but i do have some links to UK vendors and people from other countries obviously can check for availability or get from China or the UK.

    I think the category Wicks and Wire might be the right place..

    Anyway, I bought this wick a long time ago from a Chinese vendor.. It was on special so I grabbed a few and have just a bit left, I do use other wicks too.. Having used quite a bit of it, I found it to be one of the best available.. There's lots of new brands around and many are hard to work with or don't work well in all types of applications, but this worked great with everything.. I did see it at a local vendor, cannot recall which one though..

    Great review, I hope it becomes easily available locally, but if the pricing is out then $30 for 10 packs from a Chinese vendor at their next sale will keep me wicked for a while..

    So it's not my imagination? i just found it streets ahead of what I've used in the past, i put it here because it's a review, they should really have wick and wire or accessories as a category in the review section.

    Thanks @Timwis

    Sorry about no categpry for this. We need to do some work on the subforums within hardware. Since you are such a champion with these reviews, feel free to PM me with your suggestions of what we should add and I will then discuss it with the team.

    Ok, and here I thought it was only me, my packet has been finished for about a month now and I have been trying everything else out there. The nearest I got was with Royal Wick, but I am going to go look for this again now. Other cotton seems to do very well in the RDA's, but at low wattage where I live, it takes a while for the taste to go.

    Winner in my eyes.

    I have got to agree with your review @Timwis. Like @M5000 I picked a bag from eFun.top pretty much just to round off an order.
    Since then I've bought 3 more packs and don't use any other cotton besides this and Streaky.
    The best part I found is that this cotton requires zero break-in, no cotton taste from the first toot until a rewick.

    You would think cotton's just cotton but yes it definetly gives no taste when other cotton does with a fresh build i also find i get better efficient wicking and flavour on builds last longer (maybe i'm just that impressed the longer lasting flavour is just placebo, but it does seem to last longer).

    It's not a placebo, I thought I was the only one using this cotton and also wondered if the better taste was all in my head.
    Thank you for confirming my sanity :p
    I've tried them all from Kendo Gold to Royal to CBv2 and this beats all for me..

    To put it plainly, when I'm down to my last bag, I will order 3 more without hesitation....

    Are you able to get it in South Africa or do you have to buy it from China?

    You definitely piqued my interest with this as I am always up to trying some new cotton and with the comments above this seems like something I would really like to try.

    Now seeing as I do not import much and the few times I have our wonderful customs have kept my parcel waayy longer than I hoped, I searched and found that Vapers Corner stocks it:

    Guess where I will be stopping off this afternoon. :)

    Dammit, I'm going to have to raid their stock as well, so don't buy everything please. I thought I was a head case but a lot of things are slowly making sense to me now:)

    and I posted something in the thread overrated about not getting the hype about cotton because it all seemed to be the same to me and others worse.
    I will check out this cotton as I have been using a no name brand that worked out better for me than the hyped ones
