While researching vaping, you will probably have seen these two particular pieces of vaping lingo thrown about. Although we go into thorough detail in ourVaping Starter Guide, it’s important to explain how it affects your choice of nicotine strength. If you’re a new vaper looking for a sensation akin to the act of smoking a cigarette, then you’re going to be an MTL vaper. When you MTL inhale, you take the vapour into your mouth, holding it in before inhaling it into your lungs. With its tighter, more restricted draw, the MTL experience is a lot closer to what a smoker would be used to.
Direct-Lung inhale is the act of inhaling the vapour directly into your lungs, without holding it in your mouth first. This style may seem alien to former cigarette smokers or new vapers, as it is more akin to shisha inhale. So why is this important? If you've gone down the MTL route and picked yourself up a mouth-to-lung vape kit, you’ll be relieved to learn that most nicotine strengths are compatible with this style.
However, if you’ve decided that Direct Lung is better for you, then we recommend that you use a lower strength (up to 6mg), as the throat hit associated with this style will be considerably harsher using high-strength vape juice.
