Taking Vaping Gear & "E-Liquids" On A Plane Trip . . .

Okay - I see people still ask the question and do not know what to do when they are taking a flight somewhere, especially if they should pack their "Vape" gear into a suitcase or their carry-on luggage . . . Or be able to "Vape" while traveling from one city to another on the plane or in the airport . . . Well, since I fly every 5-6 Weeks, here is what I have learned and what "You" might want to know . . .DO NOT - I MEAN DO NOT - Pack in any "Checked" suitcase any "E-liquids" in large quantities, especially any "pre-filled" Tanks . . . THEY WILL LEAK/CRACK or "EXPLODE", especially if "You" are not very careful how "You" have packed them . . . I Speak From Experience - YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED . . .
AND - Although TSA Agents are quite aware of "eCigs"; and the like, I know they will frown at someone carrying on board large bottles of "E-Liquids", Big Huge MODS, or any APV's that they cannot recognize . . .
Remember TSA Regulations are that no liquids over 3oz in a container are allowed on the plane (and as I have mentioned not good to pack either) . . . However - That does not stop you from bringing 20 bottles with you, but under 3oz each . . . AND - If I may suggest, whether or not you are bringing that many bottles of "E-Liquids" - put each bottle in a separate "Plastic Sealed Bag" and then into a Larger 1 gallon "Plastic Zip-lock Bag" so it is easier to take out and then put back into your carry-on luggage if/when "YOU" NEED TO. . .
Just Sayin' . . .
Now - I do not Vape as much as many people (or possibly "You") do, but I bring 2 - Volt 78 Batteries (in a Personal Charger/Carry Case that also holds 6 KR808 Cartomizers), a "Bolt" (w/18650 Battery), and a Custom "SS Zmax Mini" that uses a 18390 Battery (all fully charged) along with 3 - 5ml Bottles & 5 - 3ml Bottles of "E-Liquid"; and 4 - 510 Boge Cartomizers; 2 - 510 "Drip Atties"; 1 - Bottle Buddy that holds a sm bottle of Menthol & Kolada . . . which all fits into a "Zune" Hard-sided Case (and can still be found online for less then the $5.00 I paid) that I modified just a little to hold the PCC and does fit into one of "My" Carry-on's . . .
Here is a Picture:
BTW: For those who maybe interested - here is an actual picture of what I travel with when I take a Plane or just go on any trip when I NEED to take some of "My" Vape Gear for a Week/Weekend:
Right Side - Left Side
w/Partition Cover Flipped
What's InsideAND - Only once have I been asked by TSA to take My eCig "Stuff" out of the Carry-on since I was told that they need to inspect it - after that never again . . .
TSA had more of a problem with the little "Snacks", including a couple of boxes of Tuna Fish/Crackers I have to take "Me", because of "My" diabetes . . .
BTW: When, I also leave all "My" Bottles of "E-Liquids" in the case, sometimes they have not asked to remove them from there . . .
AS - For any "Vaping" in an Airport - it depends on the specific airport and if they also have someone selling "E-Cigarettes" there or not . . . Some Will - Some Will Not Allow "You" to Vape inside and will insist that "You" go outside with the cigarette smokers . . . SO - It is important to check with the Airport Policy . . . (Personally, especially when in the waiting area at the gate, I have on occasion either "Stealth Vaped" there or quickly went into the lavatory with no problem/s since I was discreet - I know unbelievable, but still true I was discreet about it . . . )
It should also be noted, that the Major Airlines DO NOT ALLOW VAPING on the plane, some have even made announcements on the plane about passengers not using "ECigs"/"Cigars"/"Pipes" specifically too, especially given FAA . . .
One last thing - if "You" should try to "Stealth Vape" on the plane PLEASE be very careful - if caught, not only might the Plane be forced to turn around or land somewhere else - Ya' will be arrested as if "You" were smoking a cigarette . . . Just Sayin' . .
ALSO - MAKE SURE ALL "e-Cig" BATTERIES ARE
Now for the Disclaimer:
This is and has been "My" Personal Experience, I in NO WAY imply or say that this will be "YOUR" Experience at all . . .
I Just Hope "You" Are Now Informed & Have A NICE TRIP ! ! !
