There are different types of vaping devices, each one suiting different user needs. For instance some people may be looking for a device that they can use in conjunction with high nicotine strength E-liquids.
Others may be looking for a more powerful device that can produce much larger amounts of vapour in conjunction with a lower nicotine strength juice. This is where the different types of vaping come into play.
The two main categories of vaping are mouth to lung vaping (MTL) and direct to lung vaping (DTL).
What’s the difference?
Mouth to lung vaping : Mouth to lung vaping typically involves using a lower power device in conjunction with an atomizer with very tight airflow.
Usually when using an MTL tank, higher nicotine strength E-juice with a higher PG content is used. Check out E-liquid informational for more info on PG, VG, ratios and how they effect your vaping experience. Mouth to lung vaping is so named for the way that you inhale your vapour when using a MTL tank. In a similar to way to an analogue cigarette you inhale the vapour first into your mouth and then down to your lungs before exhaling. Hence the name mouth to lung vaping.
Direct to lung vaping : Direct to lung vaping typically involves using a higher power device in conjunction with a sub-ohm tank or RDA/RTA
(check out atomizers informational for more info on different types of atomizer) to produce much larger amount of vapour than a standard MTL setup would usually produce. As the title suggests with direct to lung vaping the vapour is inhaled directly to the lungs in one fluid motion. This is due to the density of the vapour produced with DTL setups.
Mouth to lung vaping is typically suited to those who want their vaping experience to be as close to the experience of an analogue cigarette as possible whereas direct to lung vaping is better suited to those looking to produce maximum amounts of vapour, also known as cloud chasing.
