I am in the same boat. My workplace is pretty straight edge. I am the only person of the non-admins that used to go out to smoke. I got to know the admins real good over smoke breaks, all wicked nice people. The others in my department looked down on me for it. Its that kind of workplace.
I carry my 808D and cartos around at work. I do keep a 650 and 1.5 ml clearo in my briefcase though just in case I go out or something and meet up with friends. And if I'm all alone on a lunch break or something, I'll hit it before I go back to my desk.
I am in NYC and our back entrance is right next to the back entrance of a major piece of transportation hub/city landmark. So I run into the National Guard and NYPD guys back there all the time. They've seen me with my 650 setup and never said squat about it.
i used to use an itaste vv 3.0 then i changed that to a kts with a dripper. on the gulf coast people are so used to seeing them ill grab any one of my 4 devices and head out. last night it was a evic with a vision eternity also my private v2 with trident with pluid inside. same thing at work as well i just use what ever feel good for the day. the itaste is the smallest battery i have and i barely use it. the rest run 18650's
For work & just out & about its 1 of my Provari minis & a iclear 30... If I'm going to the bar & I mean just sitting at the bar & getting hammered then it's my itaste 134 wi a iclear 30 or a evod or smok aero tank cause it just looks cool & normally some hot girl will come over & ask me about it...
I ALWAYS have 2 Ego setups on me. Always 2.
They range from 900 to 1300 non-variable. Just ordered a Spinner/Twist/Winder (I forget which one).
At home, I use an SVD and a VAMO, but that stuff just doesn't carry well in a shirt or suit pocket!
On top - same thing: when out, any of a number of EVODS, T3Minis, or sometimes a MiniProTank (though with a 900 bigger Ego, that pokes out the top of a suit pocket, too. At home/office - ProTanks, MiniProtanks, and those same EVODS and T3's.
One of these days, I'll have to choose my next mod, and it'll probably be either a ProVari Mini or an MVP, either one with the thought that it MIGHT be portable...
I was self conscious the first few times I had my MVP out in public, but it only took me about a week to stop caring. I was probably the same way with my first ego, and I know way back when I first used a Blu in public it felt weird, with its obnoxious blue light. You can get used to anything. I did have someone this weekend say he thought I had an old school cell phone.
I'll take only my Twists if I'm going somewhere without a purse, and especially without pockets, but if I don't need to stash it in my bra I'm gonna take my good stuff everywhere. I'm still enough of a dork where I'm happy to explain what the hell it is, and despite the weight it fits so well in your hand.
I'm completely opposite about the questions. I love answering people about these things because it may get another smoker to convert, and if that person isn't a smoker they may tell their friends about it. KNOWLEDGE IS POWER!
With the growing trend that ecigs are making, which is a double-edged sword, I don't think that you'd run into too much trouble with the authorities unless your vaping a ... liquid.
When I first started vaping on the smoke deck of the Navy Ship I am stationed on I would get Officers and Chiefs staring at me, but now that I've gotten a huge amount of smokers to switch over it has gotten pretty lax.

I use my best kit every time, its why I upgraded. I suppose if I had a $100+ mod I might be more inclined to leave it home. For now my best piece is my MVP 2.0 and iclear30 or mini vivi and it goes everywhere I go (lol, I've only had it 2 days). I partly bought it for the durability factor, not really for looks. But, when walking around with the tank sticking up out of my pocket, it has been a conversation starter. Do what you do, if you're not doing anything wrong then no worries. just be happy and vape. Peace
