Direct-to-lung (DTL) refers to a style of vaping wherethe vapour is inhaled in a continuous flow through the mouth and into the lungs. That contrasts with Mouth-to-Lung (MTL) vaping, where the vapour is held momentarily in the mouth before being drawn into the lungs. The image below illustrates the difference.
Typically, DTL vape tanks have a more restricted airflow and produce less vapour than direct-to-lung tanks. These tanks also use lower resistance coils than tanks used for MTL vaping, and require more power. The coils in DTL tanks also have larger coil ports (holes in the coil) to make it easier for the coils to absorb thicker e-liquid.
One of the keys to DTL vaping is the coil and the airflow. If a tank can be used with both high and low resistance coils, and the airflow can be adjusted from tight to open, it can usually be used for either mouth-to-lung and direct-to-lung vaping. DTL tanks work best with e-liquids with a VG:PG ratio of around 70:30.
Direct-to-Lung vaping is best suited for intermediate to experienced vapers who enjoy larger clouds of vapour. DTL tanks are best used with more powerful batteries capable of higher wattages than MTL batteries.

To our website you look under 18.
So, as a responsible retailer, we need to check your age.
You'll only need to do this once and it takes less than a minute.
Our age verification system is quick and easy to complete. Simply enter your date of birth, and our system will use the information from your order to do the rest.
On rare occasions, you might find that you don’t succeed on first try. Don’t worry - our super-friendly customer service team is on hand to ensure that, as long as you are 18 or over, you can still get your vaping supplies!
Once you have confirmed your age we won’t usually need to check again. (Exceptions can occur, for example if you change your name).
(You can help us check your age by ensuring your name and address are spelt absolutely correctly in the order form :) )
How your data is used
We use as little data as possible. The only data that ECigaretteDirect keep is information needed to send your order, and your date of birth (so we only have to check once!)
Your age is checked using Experian, which will check the information you provide against information in existing records to confirm you are over 18. No credit check is performed but a record of the search will be visible to you on your credit report. This will not affect your ability to get credit.
Why do we check age?
As you may know, there has been some concern that under-18’s may try vaping.
This is against both our company policy and the law.
And as responsible retailers, we need to do everything we can to ensure that every customer is of legal age.
