If you’re someone who got into vaping at the start of 2023, then you probably don’t know much about the lingo. We’ve got a lot of vaping terminologies, so figuring out what it all means can be a headache for the new smoker. Two terms we think you need to know about are Mouth to Lung vaping (MTL) and Direct Lung vaping (DL).
Knowing the difference between the two will impact your vape experience, so let’s talk about what you need to know and teach you all about each form of vaping and how to pick the right one for your needs and your device.
MTL and DL – The Differences
So, let’s talk a little bit about the difference between MTL and DL vaping, so you know which is which.
MTL vaping is mouth-to-lung and is the traditional form of vaping that you’d do most of the time. With MTL vaping, you take a drag of your vape, hold the vapour in your mouth for a minute, and then inhale, letting the vapour pass into your lungs.
Contrastingly, DL vaping works by skipping the mouth part of your vape. You inhale straight into your lungs – no holding vapour in your mouth at all.
What Difference Does MTL or DL Make?
Once upon a time, when vaping technology was still young, everyone would have focused primarily on MTL vaping because it was all you could do. However, as technology has evolved and we’ve made more sustainable vape devices, we’ve started to see an increase in the number of people who can smoke using DL vaping.
A lot of modern vapes have sub-ohm vape coils or wide airflows, which produce a lot of vapour very quickly. Your typical MTL method can’t handle this, which is why you need to use DL vaping.
So, essentially, the kit you’ve got will play a role in it. Those who want to get more vapour will shift towards DL, and it’ll be normal for them. However, those who want a more traditional vape experience will naturally head back to MTL vaping.
The only real difference between the two vaping methods is a personal preference. You can get the flavour and nicotine hit from either method; it’s just whichever you prefer. It’ll influence the devices you buy too, but that’s part of finding your vaping style.
Ultimately, it’s up to you to choose the right vaping method for your needs, but you can have either MTL or DL. It’s largely down to personal preference and how you like them – try both and pick for yourself to see what works best. We’d recommend a degree of experimentation for anyone who’s still learning about vaping.
