Tips for Flying with Your Vape Gear
With airport security being quite strict, nowadays, you may be concerned about flying with your vape gear. In general, security agents do not allow any incendiary devices like cigarette lighters through checkpoints, but as long as you follow these tips for flying with your vape gear, you should not have any issues.
First of all, make sure the destination to which you are headed allows vaping. It may sound odd, but you don’t want to be held up when you land and have your device confiscated because you did not double-check whether or not it was OK to vape in a certain country or region. That can be annoying at best and infuriating at worst.
Before you get to the airport, make sure you take the batteries out of your mod (if your battery is built in no need to worry). Put the batteries in a case. You will also want to make sure your bottles of e-liquid do not exceed the limit allowed on the aircraft (3.4 ounces/100 mL or less). If they exceed this quantity they could be taken away.
Take all of your vape gear with you in your carry-on luggage. Most airports and airlines do not want vape devices stowed away beneath the plane for safety reasons. All devices and liquids must be screened as part of your carry-on items.
Empty all the liquid from your mods. Since the airplane cabin is pressurized, it can draw out the liquid from your mod causing a big mess in your bag. The last thing you need is for the remaining items you have to be covered in Key Lime or any of your favorite Element E-liquid flavors.
If your device uses a coil, take more coils than you think you will need. Although there might be vape shops where you are going, you still want to be prepared just in case you do not have easy access one, or your schedule does not permit you to visit.
And most importantly, do not attempt to vape in the airplane or on the aircraft itself. You will get into serious trouble. The type of trouble that could require a good friend and bail money.
All in all, flying while vaping does not have to be a big deal, as long as you take the necessary steps to make sure things run as smoothly as possible.
