    If you're ever in Japan, try to smuggle some of your e liquid/nic in with you....like in a shampoo bottle, unless it changed recently, it is forbidden to sell anything other than 0mg there.

    You may find resistance entering Russia. A friend got his confiscated and to this day I have no idea why....they probably had never seen one at the time.

    If i were to go i would like my nicest things with me sometimes.
    :( Does this mean you would have to take a load of rubbish just in case it gets taken?

    Also, the idea of smuggling doesn't sound great.

    You run the risk of it getting taken anywhere you go. I don't take my shinys with me abroad.

    Indeed, it's not recommended, but I've taken getting my nicotine hit to extremes. Then again, I'm not regularly travelling to Japan, so...there's that lol

    I can't wait to see what happens when I'm in Thailand in September.

    Forget that idea. If you're thinking of visiting countries where vaping is restricted or outright illegal, taking your nice, expensive mods will only guarantee their seizure.

    Great photos. Your the perfect man to answer my questions.
    How did you keep a charge on your travels?
    I notice you had pens and an istick so I take it just USB?
    I'm not a seasoned traveller and have to ask what did you do about plugging your USB in? Did you have to buy new adapters for different continents or?

    I travel for work regularly to the UK, South Africa, Canada and Australia. I have a set of travel adapters I use to plug in all my chargers. A set will cost less than 30 bucks and cover pretty much the entire planets electrical grid. So far I have had no issues bringing my own juice w/nic to countries where zero nic is the law. As long as it isn't for sale, usually there isn't a problem. My gear has passed through the TSA and comparable agencies throughout the world with hardly a second look. Use common sense and be respectful when answering questions to authorities. I've found there are more important things for these guys to look for than vape related "threats".
