Guide - Where do I start - DTL or MTL
New to Vaping?
As the vaping market has grown vastly in the last few years there are so many different vaping devices to choose from. It can be difficult to know which one to choose when you’re starting out.
We don’t want people making the wrong choice when starting, so just like when you’re starting anything new, the best advice is to keep it simple at first.
Currently there 2 types of devices that are very popular and will suit beginners, commonly known as POD KITS or Sub Ohm Starter Kits.
Mouth to Lung
Classic inhales, also known as mouth to lung or MTL, is when you take a draw on the vape before you inhale. This action will be familiar to all smokers of cigarettes. You would use MTL devices much like you would have used a cigarette.
The Uwell Caliburn or KoKo Kits are a great choice for new vapers. It is a pod starter kit with a USB pen-esque design which allows you to easily carry it around. If your currently smoke or know someone that does, the Uwell Calburn or KOKO kit is a great option.
It is a MTL – Mouth To Lung device so its resembles smoking a cigarette by giving you a satisfying throat hit.
These devices tend to be small enough to fit in your pocket and generally have a long battery life. They are charged via USB and have been designed for simplicity of use.
Direct to Lung
Direct inhale vaping, also known as direct to lung or DTL, is when you breathe the vapour straight in, very similar to the way you be smoking shisha. Vapers who vape this way generally use sub ohm devices. This means they are vaping at a resistance of less than one ohm. This sends more power to the coils, which produces bigger clouds and more flavour.
These devices are larger than pen or pod kits. This is because they require more power, usually comes with built in batteries or can use 2, 3 or even 4 rechargeable batteries, depending on the model.
You can’t get an easier vape kit than a pod system. They work with disposable pods which contain the coil and wick and also come pre-filled with e-liquid, so there’s nothing for you to do but click your new pod in and vape away.
