    So, if I understand correctly:

    I can have my equipment....IF I convince the customs official it's electronic gear for some other purpose.

    I can't buy new equipment....UNLESS see above.

    I can't bring any nicotine liquid with me.

    I can't buy any nicotine liquid, locally (despite the presence of at least one B&M in Bangkok), nor can I have it shipped there.

    So in effect - "Yes, you can own a car, but no - you can't buy gasoline."

    Am I getting this about right?:mad::confused:

    Thanks for the link - I've read similar stories, and while it makes me feel better about carrying my gear around and such, it doesn't solve the initial catch-22 - you can own it, but you can't import the liquid to put IN it.

    Legally, anyway.

    There is NO ban on personal use only commercial importation. I vape anywhere smoking is allowed.

    Hope this helps..

    Happy vaping..

    Don't sweat it. Never had a problem from anyone while there for two weeks. On my person through airports and just put it in the bin through the x-ray. No one batted an eye....
