Traveling With Your E-Cig

You may have vaping down to a science when it comes to puffing at home or at work. Your routine of charging your battery, choosing your favorite e-liquid, and heading out for work can become second nature. But when traveling—specifically by air—you will need follow safety guidelines and pay close attention to where all of your vaping components are unless you want your e-cig confiscated by the TSA.

No vaper wants to have their e-liquid taken away from them at the airport only to have to buy more when they land, be stuck without juice, or worse — they’re forced to buy a pack of cigarettes. It’s important to know how to travel with an e-cig and all of the components that accompany vaping so you have have an enjoyable trip when you reach your destination.

Vaping Device

This is your number one piece of equipment to remember to bring. Whether it’s an e-cigarette, vape pen, or a mod, you’ll want to pack this. An e-cig is permitted for air travel, provided all removable components are removed. So make sure your batteries and tanks are disassembled from the device if you want to carry it onto the plane.

You can also check your vaping device if you don’t want to be tempted to vape on the plane, which is strictly prohibited. Just make sure your batteries are removed from the device when checking a vaping device.

Batteries & Chargers

Batteries of all shapes and sizes are not allowed to be in your checked bag. They are only allowed in a carry-on bag, or on your person, due to several dangers they can pose. The aircraft cabin, where batteries are allowed, is pressurized. A battery has the potential to explode in the unpressurized, cargo area of the plane.

Be sure that your batteries, as with every vape component, are in a protective case. Never travel with loose batteries, as they can short-circuit when they come in contact with metal such as keys or change. It is also important to keep your batteries away from water or moist surfaces.

Chargers are allowed to be checked or in your carry-on. You may want to bring several different chargers, depending on the way you are going to charge your device. To cover all your bases, a car, computer, and a wall charger are recommended. If you carry-on your charger, charging your device on the airplane is prohibited.

E-Liquid

When packing e-liquid, the TSA liquid rule should be observed. Along with lotions, creams, and other common liquids being carried on, e-liquids must be in a container that is 3.4 ounces or less. Containers must then be placed inside a one quart-sized resealable bag. You must check e-liquids if they are in a container that is more than 3.4 ounces.

A vaper should know their consumption rate of e-liquid to pack accordingly. Some places may not have your preferred juice, so follow the liquid rule if you don’t want to spend extra money and would rather not have your preferred e-liquid confiscated.

Choosing protective casing for your belongings is a given while on vacation. Why not for your vape accessories? For the protection and organization of the multiple components of vaping while you are traveling, carrying cases are recommended.

Clearly labeled cases will also make it easier to get through security. If security personnel are unfamiliar with vaping parts and deem them suspicious, they will be in an easy-to-open, labeled case. Not to mention cases allow the safekeeping of your delicate vaping parts, as well as keeping dripping to a minimum.

Vaping is supposed to be an enjoyable activity. Not a painstaking, time-consuming ordeal. It may seem that traveling with all of the components of vaping would be a nightmare, but it doesn’t have to be if you know the rules and you are prepared.
