Mouth to Lung vs. Direct to Lung: What’s the difference? – 180 Smoke Vaping Wiki

Mouth to Lung vs. Direct to Lung: What’s the difference?

Mouth to Lung Tanks

Mouth to lung tanks are categorized by their restrictive draw and two-stage inhale. With mouth to lung tanks, vapour is first drawn into the mouth, and then subsequently inhaled into the lungs. Beginners often find mouth to lung devices to feel satisfyingly familiar, but that doesn’t mean that they are the only option for beginners.

Direct to Lung Tanks

Direct to lung tanks are designed to facilitate a looser vapour that is to be inhaled into the lungs directly. Direct to lung devices normally have larger battery capacities and produce higher volumes of vapour than their mouth to lung counterparts, making them popular among shisha users or more advanced vapers.

Which Style is Right for You?

Finding the right style of device for you will ultimately come down to your subjective preferences and needs.

If you are a beginner or are looking for a lower-powered device with less vapour production, a mouth to lung tank or device might be the right option for you. Mouth to lung devices can include pod systems, pen-style devices, and even box mod vapes, so you have many options to choose from. Here you’ll find our mouth to lung tanks and mouth to lung kits.

Advanced vapers or those looking for larger clouds of vapour would be matched best with a direct to lung tank or device. These devices are also available in pen-style or box-style designs. Here you can view our direct to lung tanks and direct to lung kits.
