Flying with E Cigarettes?
Traveling with e-cigs and e-liquid on a plane isn’t something anyone wants to really waste much time thinking or worrying about.
The Security Rules For E-Cigs
At this time, there aren’t any. You’d think there would be, but there really aren’t. However, there are rules for liquids of any type. Since you’ll likely be traveling with your Halo Triton, Apollo eGo, or another mod-type e-cigs that requires a clearomizer tank – you’re most likely going to be traveling with e-juice. You’ll have to follow their guidelines for “how much” you can take. Don’t worry though…they’ve made it a tad bit easier than you think.
- You can travel with e-cigs on a plane but lithium ion vape batteries are a fire hazard. Therefore no e-cigs allowed in checked bags. You must travel with your e-cigs as carry-on.
- You can travel with e-cigs either on your person or in your carry on bag.
- If your carry on bag has too be checked at the gate, you have to remove your e-cigs and any spare batteries before your bag can be checked.
- E-liquids are allowed in checked bags but in cabin bagge can carry small bottles below 100ML or better keep 30ml multiple bottles.
Recommendations for Traveling with your eCig
Your batteries and charger can go in with your laptop case or with your other electronics. We also recommend disconnecting the batteries from their atomizers when going through the check point. You’re bound to set off an alarm, and it’s a lot easier to just hand them something than to have them treat you like you’re a criminal trying to pull some tricky stuff. Point being – don’t make your bulky e-cig look like a pen bomb/pipe bomb or even take one that resembles anything like one. Also take it apart for the sake of getting through TSA smoothly and reassemble it on the plane.
As for your batteries, cartridges, clearomizer tanks, and whatever else – unless you’re taking an unreasonable amount, don’t sweat it. Just make sure that the e-liquids are secured in a zip-top, clear plastic bag.
In the unlikely event that you can’t take your e-cig with you, a really good recommendation is that you take a self addressed envelope large enough for your e-cig with you so that you can mail it back to yourself if you can’t take it through the checkpoint, which is very unlikely to happen. Better safe than sorry.
Don’t Use Your E-cig On A Plane!
Keep in mind though, Airplanes have smoke alarms…make sure you’re discreet about your vaping, and not creating clouds within the plane. Airplanes and airports are not the place for cloud chasing! They’ll set the alarms off, and then not only are you embarrassed, but you’ve created an environment of chaos and panic. Let’s avoid that ?
