MTL Mouth To Lung or DTL Direct To Lung Vape - You Decide!

If you're new to the vaping world, you may be a bit confused by the abundance of terminology that's thrown around. Luckily for you, we are here to help, as this article is going to be discussing the two main vaping styles so that you can grab the right hardware for your vape preferences.

When it comes to vaping, there are two methods that each boast their unique pros and cons. Mouth-To-Lung (MTL) vaping and Direct-To-Lung (DTL) vaping refer to the way in which the vapor is inhaled through the mouth and into the lungs. Once you fully understand these two styles, you should be able to purchase the right setup.


The often-preferred style for those who used to smoke tobacco cigarettes. That's because the vapor is inhaled in a similar manner. First, the vapor is drawn into the mouth. Then, it's inhaled into the lungs. 

This method allows vapers to really get a taste of their e-liquid flavor profile before the vapor is sucked into the lungs. If you're someone who enjoys the complex juice flavors at LoadUp Vape Supply, this method may be right for you. 

If you want to be an MTL vaper, it's wise to grab an e-juice that has a higher PG ratio. This type of juice delivers a stronger throat hit that provides a sensation that’s like smoking a cigarette. You're also probably going to want a higher nicotine level since it provides a more satisfying punch. 

The widely popular pod systems that you can find on our site typically facilitate mouth-to-lung vaping. If you want to use a larger box mod device, you'll want to make sure that you maintain a low wattage while using a coil that has a high resistance level. This will ensure that pleasurable hit to the throat when you draw on your device. 


Involves inhaling the vapor straight into the lungs rather than allowing it to sit in the mouth for a few seconds. This method is ideal for vapers who wants to create large, dense clouds. Because the vapor is sucked straight into the lungs, more vapor is taken in per hit, resulting in huge fog on the exhale. 

DTL often delivers a throat hit that feels harsher. Another potential drawback is that you won't experience the flavor of your e-liquid to its fullest potential. 

If you want to try DTL vaping, invest in a sub-ohm setup. You'll want a box mod that can reach a high wattage. You'll also need some sub-ohm coils and a sub-ohm tank (if it’s not included in a kit purchase) to accommodate the high wattage level of your device.

Just Remember…

As you can see, the two main styles of vaping are extremely different from each other. Each style comes with its unique benefits that can dramatically enhance each puff. Regardless of your personal style, having the right equipment for your vape preferences is crucial.
