Mouth to lung/Sub-Ohm, what’s the difference?

What is Mouth To Lung?

What is known as “Mouth to lung” vaping is the style where you use your electronic cigarette like a regular analog cigarette. This style consists of a tight airflow that allows the user to suck the vapor into their mouth, followed by an inhalation into the lungs. The benefit of this style is that it replicates the draw and throat hit of a cigarette more accurately. Typically consumers use higher nicotine strengths in this style of vaping to get the desired throat hit and nicotine effect. Mouth to lung vaping typically uses a 50/50 blend of vegetable glycerine and propylene glycol. This is the ratio of the 2 main ingredients which causes the liquid to be thinner, allowing for more effective wicking to the coil.

What is Sub-Ohm?

Sub-Ohm Vaping is the alternative style of vaping as opposed to mouth to lung vaping. Sub-Ohm means a coil or atomizer that reads a resistance of below 1 Ohm. Why does this matter you might ask? With this layout, it allows users to produce significantly more vapour and flavour or as it is also known as “Clouds”. Typically the user will have a device/mod that allows for the power that is sent through the coil to be manipulated. This allows for a lot more flexible and tailored experience so you can find your own personal sweet spot. With this style of vaping its more common to use lower nicotine strengths as the higher nicotine strengths are commonly found to be too harsh on the throat. Sub Ohm vaping typically uses a high VG ratio of Eliquid,  for example, 70VG to 30PG. With this ratio, it makes the liquid thicker for denser cloud production as well as being less harsh on the throat when ingesting large amounts of vapour.
