What Are the Benefits of Using a Mouth-to-Lung Vape Tank?
If you’ve been vaping for a while, you’ve probably noticed that mouth-to-lung vaping equipment has experienced a major resurgence in popularity over the past couple of years. The pod system movement has been so huge that many dyed-in-the-wool mod users have “downgraded” to the smaller and more fashionable devices. Meanwhile, after years of virtually ignoring mouth-to-lung vaping, practically every top-tier manufacturer of vape gear has at least one premium MTL tank available.
In the past, mouth-to-lung vape tanks were strictly beginner-oriented products. They were the tanks that came with the blister-packed eGo e-cigarettes that so many new vapers selected as their first e-cigarettes. People used those types of vaping setups until they discovered the wide world of mods. Upgrading to a mod invariably resulted in a transition to the direct-to-lung inhaling style.
Today, though, it’s a completely different situation. Vape shops like Simply E-Liquid report that MTL tanks are some of their best-selling products, which might lead you to ask the question: Should you consider switching to a mouth-to-lung tank as well? You may find that the answer largely depends on why you started using the direct-to-lung vaping style in the first place.
Mouth-to-Lung Vaping No Longer Requires You to Compromise Your Satisfaction
If you started vaping before nicotine salt e-liquid and pod-based vaping devices hit the market, there’s a good chance that you didn’t start using a more powerful mod simply because you wanted to chase clouds. In fact, you might have switched to direct-to-lung vaping because it was the only way for you achieve the level of satisfaction that made it possible for you to completely eliminate your cravings for cigarettes.
That’s simply the way it was during the early days of vaping. Before the invention of nicotine salt vape juice, most people couldn’t stand higher-nicotine e-liquids because the high alkalinity made them irritating and unpleasant to use. Even if nicotine salt e-liquid had existed in those days, the mouth-to-lung vaping equipment available at that time was severely lacking in flavor quality, vapor production and usability.
Today, higher-quality hardware and nicotine salt e-liquid have combined to make it possible to be a mouth-to-lung vaper without having an experience that’s less satisfying than smoking. In short, if the main reason why you switched to a direct-to-lung mod was because it was the only way for you to feel like you were getting enough nicotine for your needs, you won’t have that problem if you use a mouth-to-lung tank today.
Mouth-to-Lung Vaping Means Longer-Lasting Coils for Fans of Sweet E-Liquids
Switching from a direct-to-lung vaping setup to a mouth-to-lung tank isn’t simply a matter of enjoying a bigger nicotine hit from a smaller device. It also means that you’ll enjoy greatly reduced maintenance requirements in the form of fewer tank refills and fewer coil replacements. Although a pod system or a mouth-to-lung tank might store a bit less e-liquid than a direct-to-lung tank, that isn’t going to matter. Since you’ll be getting more nicotine with each puff, you’ll find the experience more satisfying and will end up vaping less often as a result.
The real maintenance benefit of using a mouth-to-lung tank, though, is the fact that you won’t need to replace your coils as often as you do with a direct-to-lung tank – even if you prefer to use heavily sweetened e-liquid. As you’re likely aware, the sucralose that gives e-liquid its sweetness leaves a residue behind that causes coils to die before their time. Many vapers love sweetened e-liquid so much, though, that they have trouble giving it up even though it leads to almost daily coil replacements.
Here’s the thing about sweetened e-liquid, though: the speed at which sucralose kills your coils depends on how much of it you use. If you switch to a mouth-to-lung tank, the fact that you’ll be using less e-liquid means that your coils will last longer than they currently do even if you use the sweetest vape juice on the market.
Mouth-to-Lung Vaping Is the Cheapest Way to Vape
The fact that using a mouth-to-lung tank means that you won’t need to refill your device or replace your coils as often isn’t just a matter of convenience; it’s also a matter of expense – particularly when it comes to coils.
How much more complex and powerful have high-end vape coils gotten over the years? Before the mesh coil craze began, a high-end cloud chasing coil would have as many as 12 individual heating wires working in tandem. The switch to mesh coils slowed the arms race for a while, but that was only temporary. These days, you can find mesh coils with as many as five individual mesh strips.
Meanwhile, coils cost more than ever. It used to be that you could expect a box of vape coils to contain five coils. These days, you’re lucky if you get more than two. As we’ve just mentioned, greater vapor production means more frequent coil changes if you use sweetened e-liquid. Today’s coils are extremely powerful and extremely costly to replace – not a good combination. Switching to a mouth-to-lung tank means that your coils will last longer regardless of the type of e-liquid that you use, and that’ll translate to enormous savings.
Mouth-to-Lung Vaping Is the Most Discreet Way to Vape
Have you ever found yourself walking on a sidewalk behind a vaper? Did you find yourself smelling that person’s gigantic cotton candy-flavored clouds and thinking that the experience was just a bit obnoxious? If you’re wondering whether others think the same thing about you when use a high-power mod in public, the answer is unfortunately “yes.”
There’s a reason why vaping is now included in bans on public smoking almost everywhere, and the reason is that, during the early days of vaping, some vapers simply didn’t care about who they were annoying. People continue to cast sideways glances at vapers today, and if you’re tired of dealing with that, a mouth-to-lung tank is exactly what you need. It’ll make it possible for you to vape in complete discretion; you won’t even exhale a visible cloud if you hold the vapor in your lungs for a few seconds.
