    Just traveled from CA to NV and back. TSA is primarily interested, by way of vaping gear, in the following two areas: Internal/External Batteries and liquid. Doubt TSA is interest in any vape device that doesn't have batteries.
    Internal battery built mods ok on person/carry on bag in flight. I took in two each Istick 30w in my pocket. At carry on baggage x-ray, was given a small bowl to put mods in. The bowl with batteries were sent on conveyor through he x-ray machine. No problems encountered.

    Liquid: as many bottles that will fit in a 1 quart zip lock bag. None of the bottles exceeding 100ml. in liquid size. Ok in carry on or checked bag. One 1 quart bag (2 total) in carry or checked ok. No problems encountered.
    If you had 2 checked in and 2 carry on bags, you probably would not have problems with traveling with 4 one quart bags total.

    I've heard mixed results when going through Mexico customs. Should be OK, but just be prepared if they do decide to seize the gear.

    Just back from Dubai. Brough an EGO Battery in my hand luggage and several clearomizers in my checked bag along with the juices all in my toilet bag (in ziplocks). In Dubai I bought an Istick Pico and some more juice. Traveled home with the batteries in my carry on and everything else in checked luggage. No questions asked anywhere. Several others who attended the conference brought ecigs in carry on travelling from Belgium and France and they also walked straight through. One of them was even vaping away at the luggage belt i Dubai :)

    I just had a thought, when I flew to Dubai in 2009 I made sure my hold-baggage e-liquid was in sealed unopened bottles and packaging, A small 10ml opened bottle, mod, atomisers, batteries in plastic case with contacts covered in electrical tape plus charger went in carry-on luggage. E-cigs weren't too well known then, so I took no chances.

    Perhaps its a non-issue, but for people who mix their own juice (as I do nowadays) would unlabelled bottles of liquid cause any issues? - I mean it could be anything in there.

    I've flown domestic and international with unmarked eliquid bottles many times with no issues. I use 60 ml clear squeeze bottles in a ziploc bag in my carry on.
