A Guide to RDTL Vaping

RDTL Vaping: Restricted Direct to Lung Comprehensive Guide

When it comes to vaping, no two people are the same. So, it’s no surprise that some people prefer certain vaping styles over others. Many people, particularly beginners, favour a Mouth-to-Lung experience that mimics the sensation of smoking a real cigarette, whereas others opt for a Direct-To-Lung vaping style, which generates large clouds and requires much more power. But what if you’re looking for a middle ground between the two? Well, that’s where RDTL comes in.

In this guide, we’ll provide a comprehensive breakdown of Restricted Direct to Lung vaping, covering what it means, how it works, and whether it could be the right vaping style for you to help you along your quit smoking journey and eventually ditch the cigs for good. Without further ado, let’s dive in!

What is RDTL Vaping?

RDTL vaping stands for Restricted Direct to Lung vaping, and it’s a somewhat modern term used in the vaping community. This style of vaping sits somewhere between Mouth to Lung (MTL) and Direct to Lung (DTL), encompassing a handful of qualities from each to give users the best of both worlds.

RDL vaping is fairly similar to DTL vaping, but with a slightly tighter draw. This vaping style restricts the airflow and requires specially designed RDL-suitable coils to prevent overheating, burning, and sub-par vapour production. This vaping style also delivers all the silky smooth throat hits you’d expect from an MTL experience, but with dense clouds and more flavourful vapour.

Who is RDTL Vaping For?

RDTL vaping is perfect for anyone wanting to combine the great features of both MTL and DTL vaping. You can reap all the benefits of MTL vaping, including a discreet vaping experience and being able to take advantage of high strength nicotine e-liquid, but you’ll also get to enjoy the deep flavour and satisfying inhale that DTL vaping provides.

RDL vaping is also well-suited for those who prioritise ease of use and versatility. RDTL devices are often available in the form of a pod kit, which is known to be among the most convenient vape types on the market by keeping refills general maintenance simple and straightforward. These kits are often compatible with many different coil types, so if you’re not satisfied by your RDTL coil, you’re free to replace it with a high-resistance coil that’s suitable for MTL vaping.

Benefits of RDTL Vaping

Restricted Direct to Lung vaping has witnessed a recent surge in popularity, and it’s easy to see why. Not only does it give users the freedom to choose between MTL and DTL vaping and stitch between the two whenever they please, it also means that they’re able to use both high PG and high VG e-liquids without buying a whole new device. So, users no longer have to get their hands on a complicated sub-ohm device to take advantage of 60 and 70% VG vape juice.

Another benefit of RDTL vaping is the strong nicotine hit. As DTL vaping tends to lack that all-important, ultra-satisfying throat hit that comes along with MTL vaping and smoking a traditional cigarette, new users and particularly ex-smokers find that it doesn’t quite hit the spot. Well, RDTL vaping ensures silky smooth throat hits as well as increased vapour production, striking a great balance between the two.

You can also experience greater vapour production with RDTL kits without having to deal with the burden of carrying around a bulky sub ohm device. As most RDTL vapes are pod-style kits that can be carried around in your pocket, they're extremely portable and take up less space than a regular pack of cigarettes.

Is RDTL Vaping Suitable for Everyone?

No—as with all vaping styles, restricted direct to lung vaping isn’t going to satisfy everyone, as no two people are the same. For example, if you’re a beginner vaper and recently switched from smoking cigarettes to vaping, you may not be comfortable with the amount of vapour RDTL kits produce. Many beginners prefer to opt for a more discreet starter kit that produces very little vapour to help ease the transition from cigarettes to an e-cigarette.

Conversely, if you consider yourself a cloud chaser and enjoy the sensation of generating large plumes of vapour, an RDTL vape kit may not suffice. If you’re on the hunt for something more powerful, you may get on better with a sub-ohm vape kit that supports high-wattage vaping.
