    Can report that have completed my trip to Miami with my little micro and had no problems whatsoever with airport security both at Heathrow and Miami. Just put it in a little purse in my handbag and did not get searched :) and they are really strict in Miami, have got one of the new machines that can see through your clothes and everything 8-o Also my new pen style has arrived from Simon, and it is so much better than the micro, much more vapor and easier to drag. I love it so much I think I will take it to Texas on Sunday!!!

    Nice one Betty! That's good to hear! Did you smoke it in the galley? Or were you too scared? :)

    Was wondering if it would get through airport security. But I couldn't imagine that a 30 ml bottle of e-liquid would fare as well.

    Nope. I'm cheeky but I don't have the cojones to try that one on. Let's face it, you could kill 5 people with a 30ml bottle.

    I can see it now:

    Spider, the machine they have is like a virtual strip search machine, the operator can see your body beneath your clothes, I agree a bit pervy ;) Just between us all, did try it in the galley only to show another two crew members how it works!! needless to say they both wanted one and thought it was the best thing since sliced bread! As for getting liquid through, it depends how it reacts with the litmus paper they test your liquids with. It would also have to be in a branded bottle, so probably unlikely.

    Or whether they use the litmus test at all on your liquids. I've had to leave some non-aerosol hairspray and some atringents behind and buy them again at my destination.
    I would just carry cartridges and take one like the Janty that has a case.

    They only random test the liquids in your hand luggage, I have only had my checked case opened by the TSA once in the last year and that was probably because if was full of almond joys!!

    And I would confiscate your Almond Joys too cuz those danged things are GOOOOOOOOD!

    Anyway, I think I'd rather lose a $3 bottle of hairspray and a $6 bottle of astringent than risk a 30 ml bottle of jane's 555. I'd definitely be crying.
