What are Mouth-to-Lung tanks?

Mouth-to-lung (MTL) refers to a style of vaping wherethe vapour is first drawn into the mouth, and then held there briefly before being inhaled into the lungs. This contrasts to DTL vaping, when the vapour is inhaled in a continuous flow through the mouth and into the lungs. The difference is illustrated in the image below. 

Image illustrating the difference between MTL and DTL vaping.

Typically, MTL vape tanks have a more restricted airflow and produce less vapour than direct-to-lung tanks. These tanks also use higher resistance coils than tanks used for DTL vaping, and require less power. The lower power requirements also mean that batteries last longer than they do with DTL tanks.

One of the keys to MTL 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. MTL tanks work best with e-liquids with a VG:PG ratio of around 50:50, such as Halo Vapour Co.

Who is MTL vaping for?

The mouth-to-lung experience is similar to that of smoking, making it ideal for people who have recently switched from smoking to vaping. However, many experienced vapers continue to enjoy MTL vaping. Some vapers also believe that MTL is better for flavour than DTL vaping.

You Must Be Over 18 to Buy From E-cigarette Direct

Why do I have to prove my age?

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.

For more information, see our Terms and Conditions.
