Tips for Traveling with Your E-Cigarette

While switching to e-cigs has numerous advantages, traveling with them involves a little more research than flying with combustible cigarettes, which is why we’ve done some of the legwork for you. Here is what you need to know when it comes to traveling with e-cigs.

Check the destination country’s e-cigarette rules and regulations

When flying internationally, before you start packing your e-cig or personal vaporizer to take with you, always make sure to check the rules and regulations regarding e-cigarettes in the country you will be visiting. Don’t assume that the rules will be similar to your home country. For instance, while vaping is not only allowed but promoted as a smoking cessation system in the UK, their possession and use are completely banned in Thailand.

Pack appropriately-stored devices and lithium batteries in your carry-on luggage

The good news is that electronic nicotine delivery systems (ENDS) are permitted on planes. However, since the Federal Aviation Administration has deemed that lithium batteries can be a fire hazard, it is prohibited to transport them in your checked luggage. Store them, along with your powered-off electronic device, in a sturdy e-cigarette case, and pack them in your carry-on luggage.

Our compact and portable Prime E-Cigarette Case is an excellent choice, enabling you to store all of your components in convenient elastic-banded ripstop nylon pockets and hold downs. Its semi-hard shell provides a smooth fit and plenty of protection at the same time while the heavy-duty zipper allows you to open and close the case smoothly.

You are also permitted to have your e-cigarette and batteries on your person, but you are not allowed to use or charge ENDS on the aircraft.

If your e-cigarette doesn’t use a lithium battery, you have the choice of packing it in your checked luggage or your carry-on.

Pack flavor cartridges and vapor juice in a clear plastic bag

When it comes to your e-liquid, whether you use flavor cartridges or vapor juice, you can bring them through security as long as you comply with the TSA’s 3-1-1 policy that applies to all liquids. 3.4 oz containers or less are permitted as long as they fit in a quart-size, clear plastic bag with a zip top. You can bring one bag per person, and you will have to place them in the screening bin when passing through security.

Rules and regulations change frequently, so always check with the airlines if you have any questions before you begin to pack your luggage.
