The Difference between MTL and DL Devices

This blog highlights the differences between MTL and DL devices.

When you vape for the first time, the way that you inhale makes a huge difference, if you inhale incorrectly it could lead to coughing or a rush of nicotine.

If you are new to vaping, you may not be aware that there are two different types of devices. While both do the same job, each is used in a different way.


MTL devices work best with smaller e-cigs that have a high resistance coil, these types of devices work best with higher nicotine levels.

Most people that are trying to make the switch from cigarettes to vaping will choose a MTL device such as the Acrohm Fush Nano 10W Pod Kit.

MTL and DL devices

Purely because the sensation you get is similar to that of a cigarette.

They produce a tight draw which makes low vapor and provide a hit to the throat similar to that of smoking.

How to use a MTL device

A MTL device is very similar to smoking a cigarette:

  1. Slowly draw vapour into your mouth for a few seconds
  2. Hold it for a few seconds
  3. Open your mouth and breathe in the vapor to your lungs
  4. Exhale


DL devices work best with a low resistance coil and a lower strength of nicotine (between 0 and 6mg). This type of device will produce more vapour and you will get a harsher hit. However, the low nicotine strength will give you a smooth experience.

DL vaping is a lot more intense than MTL and some new vapers may find it a little overwhelming to begin with.

A great DL starter kit for people starting out is the Lost Vape Lyra Pod System.

How to use a DTL device

  1. Draw vapour quickly to the lungs
  2. Exhale almost immediately

Whichever device you choose is up to you and your preferences. Both MTL and DL devices allow vaping enjoyment, but they use different devices, e-liquids and nicotine levels.

It is important to note that DL vaping is more complex then MTL. If you are just starting out, it might be worth starting off with a MTL device and working your way up to a DL.

MTL and DL devices both have their advantages, which you choose purely depends on personal preference.
