Reliable sellers on eBay sell different types of replacements wicks with each type serving a distinct purpose. Your options include replacement wicks for oils lamps, table torches, and electronic cigarette atomisers. Wick size for oil lamps and burners can vary considerably with most options ranging between 3 mm and 12 mm. Most good alternatives offer loose braids and hollow centres, as this enhances capillary action. In addition to using these wicks with lamps and burners, you can use them with aromatherapy diffusers. You can also use their capillary action to water plants when you are away. If you use electronic cigarettes, it is important that you replace the atomiser?s wicks from time to time because usage causes deterioration in flow of vapour as well as flavour. Replacement wicks for atomisers take away the need for replacing entire atomisers. Whichever type you are looking for, just make sure you do not run out of stock any time soon.
