    Do you have to boil the cotton? (Like we used to do back in the day?) :p

    Nope... Take out of bag, cut strips to suit coil width, roll end, thread through, position, snip length to suit, juice up and vape! Taste is spot on from the first toot.

    Cotton balls are a hassle man...
    Het the square pads, you just cut and wick, no extra stuff like seperating strands to roll and form a wick out off.

    I haven't noticed any taste coming off the DC pads at all, I've heard one report from someone who said the cotton has a taste but I don't pick it up. Seems to me to be even more neutral than KGD.

    It's super convenient to cut and wick, and for the price it's worth trying at least ;-)

    That stuff looks almost exactly like the DC pads - wouldn't be surprised if it's a re-badged version of something similar :p

    I now use the Jap Cotton Pads from SkyBlue....it's dirt cheap and works like a charm - as good as any other Jap Cotton out there :)

    I've tried these DC pads and they really weren't doing it for me...but since you guys have had no ill effects from using them I'm sure they're perfectly fine as well ;)

    I also use those square pads from dischem, I think the brand is softi, such a convenient size also and the price there is no comparison.
