You can travel with vaping devices like vape mods and vape pen. You can put them in carry-on luggage or your pockets but never in checked luggage. This applies to any kind of vapes that have lithium batteries.
Even though nicotine e-liquid or extra pods can be packed in either carry-on or checked bags, federally regulated substances like cannabis products in small amounts, such as residue in devices—are prohibited on most flights overseas. Don’t risk it.
Since there may be some minor variations in how TSA vape rules are made and applied by numerous airlines, it is reasonable to evaluate the specific airline rules before you fly. If you are travelling to an unfamiliar country/territory, ensure that you also check for the country’s local vaping laws before you leave.
Some countries have unconditional vape bans in which case flying with a vape pen should be the least of your worries!
How to pack your e-juice, batteries, and devices for travel
Travelling by air should be very simple for vapers like vape mods and vape pen .They simply need to take a vape on a plane with extra batteries and their favourite liquid. They won’t experience any problems as long as they follow some basic rules and know the procedures.
Packing vaping devices and batteries for travel
As a result of several misgiving over fires in the cargo hold, all electronic devices and vape batteries need to be taken into the plane as you cannot put them in your checked baggage. This is an international rule, with no exceptions. If you ignore it and your luggage is x-rayed by the baggage handlers, you could lose not your devices and batteries but find your suitcase and items kept in your baggage roughed up.
They might put your luggage at the departure airport. So you should take your vape devices aboard in your cabin luggage or your pocket.
- In case you take extra batteries, protect them in safe plastic battery cases to avoid accidents
- If your mod uses external batteries, remember to take your battery charger
- If your trip is short, contemplate taking a couple of simple devices like some disposable vapes. They are easy to carry and don’t need a charger. You won’t need to pack separate e-liquid
- Fill tanks partially, or leave them empty till you arrive at your destination as the cabin pressure can make full tanks leak.
Packing vape juice for travel
All liquids carried into a plane must be in 100 mL bottles or smaller bottles and they must also fit into a single 1-quart plastic bag, due to TSA rules. This rule applies to toothpaste, shampoo, hair gel, lip balm, deodorant, and e-juice too.
In case you are bringing more bottled vape juice which is more than will fit in your 1-quart bag, you have to put it in your checked luggage. If you do that, make sure the bag is doubled to avoid getting to your week-long vacation with a suitcase full of wet-smelling clothes! Good news: there’s no size limit for liquids in checked baggage, and pods and cartridges are allowed
Try taking partially used bottles that have some unused space at the top as the cabin pressure can make full bottles expand, or even split at the seams. Carry e-juice in a higher nicotine strength than you usually use, so you don’t have to bring as much
Nicotine products for travelling
If your vape is your preferred way of consuming nicotine, there are alternative products that can make travelling easier especially if you are travelling long distances and have no option to vape.
With an exception, it is illegal to vape in airports and always illegal to vape on a plane. The exception is a designated smoking lounge.
You could break the rules and risk an ejection from the airport which would lead to you missing your flight and defaulting on the price of your ticket.
What we are trying to say is that irrespective of what product you are travelling with, ensure you check for policies regarding vapes on flights.
