MTL and DTL Subohm Vaping FAQ VPZ UK

If you are new to vaping you may be wondering what MTL (mouth to lung) and DTL (direct to lung, subohm) vaping is and why there are different devices suited to each type, this useful blog may help to explain this further for you and give a better understanding as to which may suit you better!


What is MTL Vaping? 


MTL vaping is mouth-to-lung vaping, what this means is when you take a draw of your e-cigarette you take the vapour into your mouth and then to your lungs much like you would when smoking a traditional cigarette, we find that almost every new vaper will choose this style of device first because it is incredibly easy to use and provides a sensation which is familiar to that of a traditional cigarette.

MTL vapes are usually run at a low wattage meaning that they do not require a lot of power to keep you going throughout the day, these tanks and devices also utilize high PG e-liquids which are available in various nicotine strengths suited to beginner vapers that may require more than what can be provided by high VG shortfill e-liquids!

What is DTL Vaping?

DTL vaping is direct-to-lung vaping which is more commonly used by experienced vapers, this is where you take the vapour directly into your lungs bypassing the mouth (you can see why this may be more difficult for beginner vapers!) this style of draw is incredibly light and produces a large amount of vapour and flavour, perfect for those that have worked their way down to a 3mg nicotine strength!

This type of vaping device consists of a variable wattage box mod so that you can truly fine tune and perfect your experience and a sub-ohm vape tank which utilizes low ohm coils that process shortfill e-liquids.

DTL vapes are usually run at high wattages with much larger coils and require thicker high VG e-liquids to ensure a satisfying vape!
