Just got back from Dominican Republic, lovely people there, nice weather and magnificent vegetation, everything you expect from a tropical country! I wouldn't recommend Puerto Plata though, we never saw a beach that awful. We're never going back to that particular place. On the way back, at the airport, going through DR customs, I had my 2 ecigs that I brought with me, both the same, an IPV D2 with an IGO-L dripper atomizer on top of it (not a tank, no liquid in it) and both using an 18650 battery. I put them in the tray with my keys and stuff so that it goes through the x-ray machine. When they came out, one custom agent told me I can't bring my ecigs with me even though they were both powered down. Didn't make sense to me so I started arguing on why and he wouldn't give me an answer. I had up to 4 customs agent around me and no one could give me an answer. I wasn't going to let them go. Something was fishy. I really think they wanted to keep them for themselves. So I started dismantling them. I thought that I might as well salvage as much as possible. So I took the battery out, told them "this is just a battery, I can keep it right?", put them in my tray and they didn't say anything. Then I had the battery cover on the other hand, I said "this is just a small piece of metal, I can keep it right?", put them in my tray and they didn't say anything. I was about to remove my drip tip then my atomizer but I think they understood where I was going with this and since it was pretty much a useless machine already they just told me its ok, you can keep it, move along. And the day was saved! If DR has a law against ecigs at the customs, it's not written anywhere and no one warned us about it like the people that tag your checked-in baggage.
