Yeah a list of friendly countries would be awesome. It would be great if there was somewhere where people could post recent experiences since things seem to change. I found that link too after I got home. I could swear it wasn't there before. It is dated 2010. My spanish is non existent but I don't think it mentions ecigs. I think rechargeable batteries are there though. I had an ecig with me 2 times before in Punta Cana and didn't have trouble. My stuff got taken in Samana (much smaller airport) but googling around I see people have been having trouble in punta cana too lately.
