“Can you bring your vape on a plane?” is one of the most googled questions about vaping devices. There are a lot of rules and regulations about the matter. Here are some tips and tricks to have a nice trip and enjoy vaping experiences anywhere you go.
Traveling with vaping products
Firstly, you need to know that you can travel with your vape only if it comes in your carry-on bag, not in checked baggage. Why? Because of the lithium batteries.
When you travel with vaping products, you bring into the airplane two kinds of components: e-liquids and lithium-ion batteries. These are considered dangerous by airline regulations because they can set on fire alarms, or the heating element of the devices can be activated while traveling. So, if you are planning on bringing vapes to an airplane, you must abide by the security guidelines to avoid any on-air incidents.
Something to consider is that batteries must not exceed 100Wh, and if we’re talking about lithium batteries, the maximum amount of lithium is 2gr.
The TSA, Transportation Security Administration of the United States states that you must follow these guidelines if you want to travel with your vaping device.
However, some advice we can give you is to check the rules of your chosen airline about vaping and electronic cigarettes. Also, if you’re traveling internationally, check the destination country’s regulations for vapes because these devices might be forbidden in some places.
And last but not least, it’s important to clarify that vaping and charging your batteries on planes is prohibited.
Traveling with vaping juices
TSA rules remark that liquids, sprays, gels, and creams must be contained in 100mL bottles or less. They also have to fit into a single quart bag. If you are planning on packing more than the forenamed amount, you should bring it in your checked baggage. Another piece of advice: double pack it to avoid any leaking in your luggage and clothes.
How to pack your vaping products?
To avoid the risk of fire in the cargo hold, as we said, all airlines forbid you to carry your vaping devices in your checked bags, only in your carry-on bags. If you bring your vaping devices in your checked bags, don’t be surprised if airport security takes them away!
Extra tips for packing vaping products
- If you carry extra batteries, wrap them in something plastic (bags, for instance) to avoid accidents.
- If your vaping mod needs batteries, don’t forget to bring them charged.
If it’s a short trip, travel with disposable vapes (HAVE YOU TRIED OUR BLAZE VAPE?).
- Air pressure can cause tanks to leak, so fill them partially or travel with them empty.
