When choosing a vape kit or e cigarette, you may come across the terms 'MTL' and 'DTL'. MTL stands for "mouth to lung" and DTL stands for "direct to lung." These acronyms define the different vaping styles used by vapers and relate to how you inhale the vapour created by your e cigarette.
What is “MTL”---Mouth to Lung Vaping?
MTL vaping is a style of vaping in which you first pull the vapour into your mouth and then into your lungs. This style of vaping is best suited to beginners as it resembles the way in which most people smoke a cigarette.
What Are MTL Vape Kits?
Vape kits suitable for mouth to lung vaping require coils (the part of an e-cigarette that turns e-liquid into vapour) with a higher resistance. This resistance is measured in ohms and MTL devices tend to use coils with a resistance of 1 ohm or above.
This essentially means that the liquid in the tank is vapourised at a cooler temperature and therefore a cooler, thinner vapour is produced. This is similar to the density of cigarette smoke and another reason why devices designed for MTL vaping are often favoured by beginners.
Our L4 600 puffs disposable vape is a popular example of an ultra-portable MTL vape. It's by far one of the most popular MTL vapes on the Global market.
What is 'DTL' --Direct to Lung or Vaping?
Direct-to-lung vaping is a style of vaping in which you pull vapour from your mouthpiece directly into your lungs. Compared to MTL vapes, DTL vapes tend to have looser airflow and a higher rate of vapour production. This is usually favoured by more experienced vapers as the vapour is more dense and can be a little overwhelming for new users.
Therefore, DTL e-cigarettes tend to be larger than MTL e-cigarettes. They sacrifice some portability for performance, but DTL vapers see that as a small price to pay. Your DTL vape won't be as compact as an MTL vape, it stands out at coulds
What are DTL Vape Kits?
Unlike classic MTL style kits and tanks, DTL hardware will need coils with a resistance below 1 ohm. The lower resistance allows the coil to heat e liquid at a higher temperature and therefore creates warmer, more dense clouds of vapour. This is otherwise known as 'sub ohm' vaping (find out more about that here).For those that don't want to put the time into researching various tanks and batteries, most DTL vape batteries have kit options that include an atomizer from the same company. Starter kits come with everything you need to start vaping, making your shopping experience a lot less stressful.
Because these kits include components that are made to work well together, the pairing usually provides a very satisfying vape session. That's certainly the case with Jomo L7 5000 puffs vape pods. The L7 model is an awesome DTL vape because it brings you the best of both worlds.
It's a lot smaller than most DTL vapes, and its superb flavour quality is more like that of an MTL vape. That being said, it still retains the attributes that define a DTL vape. For instance, it features a modular design, and the vapour production is plentiful enough for a direct-to-lung hit.
It's slightly larger than most MTL vapes, but it's a lot smaller than most DTL vapes. It's as flavorful as an MTL vape, but it's capable of vapour production that MTL vapes only dream of.
