What Is Direct-to-Lung Vaping

2023-05-16 10:30:20

DTL or sub-ohm vaping uses thicker high VG e-liquid, which is available in 10ml bottles of premixed nicotine, or the more popular and economical 50ml & 100ml shortfills, that start out with 0mg of nicotine and leave room for an additional nic shot.

Here you are inhaling deep lungfuls of vapour through a kit that pumps out double or even triple the amount of power to that of an MTL kit.

You can see where we are going with this.

These high VG e-liquids can contain up to 3mg or 6mg of nicotine, but quite often people vape for the rich flavour and sheer recreational fun of blowing out massive clouds of vapour - so things can get a bit carried away.

More power means bigger clouds carrying denser & more complex flavours. So you can bet that those sub-ohm coils will be drinking up your e-liquid fast.

Saved by Technology!

The good news is that a lot of sub-ohm vape kits display their own puff counter, so you can set it to zero, top up and vape until you are empty (just don’t burn your coil) and check the number at the end.

Which is exactly what we decided to do here at Vape Superstore. Using the Drag H80S with a mid-range 0.3ohm coil and a bottle of Blow! e-liquid, we filled and vaped 3 tanks worth and found that on average we emptied the 2ml tank in 60 puffs.

This means you get, on average, 1500 puffs per 50ml and 3000 puffs per 100ml shortfill bottle. If you are adding nic shots to your shortfills it works out to about 1800 puffs per 50ml and 3600 puffs per 100ml shortfill.

Disposable Vape

1 x Disposable Vape = 600 puffs (approx.)

Nic Salts & Freebase E-Liquids

1.2ohm mesh coil + 50/50 10ml = 3000 puffs (approx.)

0.8ohm mesh coil + 50/50 10ml = 2000 puffs (approx.)


0.3ohm mesh coil @ 45W + 70/30 50ml = 1500 puffs (approx.)   / 100ml = 3000 puffs (approx.)

Which Vape is Better Value?

By now you may have realised that vaping 10ml bottles or shortfills with a refillable kit is by far better value for money than disposables. And with the deals on offer here at Vape Superstore it’s a no-brainer in terms of savings - and better for the environment too!
