Top 5 Best Mouth-To-Lung Tanks

Features To Look For In An MTL Tank

Airflow: The airflow is one of the most important parts to a mouth-to-lung tank.  The airflow should have just the right amount of restriction, and even with the stock restriction it should still offer adjustable airflow control to allow the user to dial-in to their airflow preference.  Many believe the airflow should be comparable to the experience of one you receive from smoking a traditional cigarette.  Another feature that users look for in an MTL tank is increased throat hit.  When the airflow is restricted enough and the vapor is condensed, this creates a better throat hit for the user.

TIP: Using a higher nicotine strength will increase the throat hit.  The higher the nicotine strength, the more throat hit you’ll receive.

Flavor: Mouth-To-Lung users are also more keen to seeking out a better flavor production than a better vapor production.  MTL Tanks are known for their ability to offer the great flavor from your vape juice, but some of them do better than others as a result of airflow and coil design.  With that said, most people search for an MTL tank that presents the best features to produce the best flavor.

Tank Capacity: Though it isn’t a feature that’s on the priority list for many, it’s definitely nice to have a large tank capacity, while not compromising in size by too much.  A common tank capacity is around 3mL or greater, but there are tanks available that perform great, yet do not offer a large tank capacity.  The market is large and there are plenty of options, so do not settle for less, and make sure you seek out an MTL tank that offers a great tank capacity while still not taking up too much size.

Coils: The great thing about MTL tanks versis DL tanks is that the coils are typically less complex and take on a smaller size, resulting in replacements coils that are much more affordable.  However, since the hype surrounds DL tanks, there aren’t as many coil options available for mouth-to-lung tanks as there are for others.  This is why MTL users should search for the best features available for these tanks, as coil options are important when it comes to the experience and satisfaction you gain from a tank.  Being that temperature control has become popular throughout the industry, many MTL tanks offer temp control coils, such as Stainless Steel (SS) and Nickel 200 (Ni200) coils.

Ease of Use: The ease of use from a tank is something also worthy keeping an eye out for.  There’s nothing like the ability to quickly refill your tank with ease, so a great feature to have is a top fill design.  Other notable features that fall into the ease of use group is the ability to completely dissasemble the tank for purposes of cleaning, and others even enjoy a feature that allows them to replace the coil without having to empty the tank.

  • I seriously wonder, do you even MTL? Those tanks you mentioned are far from the best, okay maybe nautilus X is one of the better ones, but still, you failed to mention kayfun or rose, let alone the boutique vape such as kabuki. MTL is so much more than what you wrote here. I’m an exclusive MTL vapers for 4 years, and i disagree with this article.

      • I know exactly what I wrote. In fact, this article is based off of research I did throughout the vaping community, finding out what tanks MTL users prefer most. The list you see in this article is a result of that research, which included a whole list of MTL users agreeing on these products.

          • Calm your tits! If you argue with the choices I picked for this list, then argue with half of the MTL users on Reddit and other sites, as this list comes from research on what users enjoy most. Rebuildables weren’t chosen to be on this list. And, there’s nothing about me at all – I’m not an MTL user. So, uh, yea. Why would you let an article get you this mad? lol

    • Ive been hunting down all possible MTL tanks out there for years now and this list is absolute crap, the only one you got right is the nautilus which is up there but not the X and the rest on the list is just not even close. start looking at Squape, Rose, Kayfun’s, Expromizers, Pico’s thats MTL for you.

  • I personally LOVE the Kanger Toptank Mini! The coils last such a long time and I vape around 35 watts and it holds alot so I don’t have to fill it every couple of hours.I am a MTL vapor and I want flavor not vapor. I had problems with this tank initially leaking alot until I went to a local vape shop and they told me not to tighten the coils so much and I also fill the tank when changing a coil and let it sit in a small container overnight with the air flow open all of the way that way I can see leaks before putting it on my mod. Since I started doing this I haven’t had a tank leak on a mod overnight! So happy now!!! I also have a Crown 2 that is a so called DL but by restricting the airflow and using the .8 coils, it does great as a MTL tank! I wish I could find a tank that holds over 6mls and is 22mm! I HATE filling tanks and I don’t know why they don’t make them bigger as I can’t be the only person who wants a large capacity tank for the smaller mods. Sorry I rambled on lol!
