Types of Vapes | Mouth-To-Lung vs. Direct-To-Lung

There are two basic styles of vaping, and the category you fit into is down to personal preference.

Mouth-To-Lung (MTL)

Mouth-To-Lung vaping is where the vape is drawn into the mouth first and then pulled into the lungs in a second motion. Vaping devices suited to this style have a tighter draw that simulates the drag of a cigarette. They also tend to run on lower power, as high power is unnecessary for mouth-to-lung vaping. The advantage of mouth-to-lung vaping is that the style more closely resembles cigarette smoking, so these devices are great for people wanting to swap to vaping but still retain the feeling of inhaling a cigarette. This style is also great if you want to be a little more inconspicuous while vaping, as the vapour production is minimal compared to a direct-to-lung style vape.

For people who are just starting out learning how to vape via mouth to lung or want to switch from cigarettes, we recommend the alt. Pod Vape Starter Kit, which can be found here.

Direct-To-Lung (DTL)

Direct-To-Lung vaping has risen in popularity since the invention of electronic cigarettes. A direct-to-lung vape tends to have much more airflow than a mouth-to-lung vape and can produce vast amounts of vapour! Because the devices produce much more vapour each time you inhale, you will need to have lower amounts of nicotine, or it will result in a harsh vape. We recommend a 6mg nicotine level max for direct-to-lung kits. An advantage of direct-to-lung vape is much better flavour from your tank and massive clouds if that's what you're into!

For beginner straight-to-lung vape enthusiasts, we recommend the VAPO Flow Kit, which can be found here.
