    I am packing for my first flight and business trip since I started vaping and quit smoking, and it is stressing me out a little bit. I am headed to Vegas for 5 Days which is indoor smoking capital of the world, and I want to make sure that I have plenty of back ups to help me though this. I am trying to make sure that I pack all of the gear that I will need.

    I am leaving behind all of my rebuilding tools and supplies.
    • 2 Kbox Minis
    • 2 Subtank Minis - freshly rebuilt RBAs
    • 1 Spare Subtank Mini RBA - built and ready to go
    • 3 Factory OCCs
    • 1 Pack of STM o-rings
    • 1 Snapdragon RDA
    • 1 Blue Screw Driver
    • 4 18650 batteries charged up
    • 1 Nightcore D2 charger
    • 1 Charging cable for emergencies
    • 60ml e-liquid
    I know that this may sound silly, but can I please get help with my list to help me make sure that I pack everything?

    I know that I will need to put my e liquid in a zip lock for security, and that I should carry everything in my carry on bag. I have also heard that I should leave my tanks empty for the flight. Any other travel tips?

    Everything fits in my little electronics case below.

    Looks good! One thing that can help is doing a search for Las Vegas ecig and vape shops and printing a map of the ones near where you are staying. A little more peace of mind. Have a great trip!

    That is a fantastic idea!!!! Thanks!

    That brings up another question that I have. Does anyone have any recommendations for shops on the Strip? I will be spending most of my time in or around Caesar's Palace.

    I'd probably put the screwdriver in my checked luggage. It's a "pointy" object and you might get a TSA agent having a bad day. (I once had a 1/4" socket T handle taken by TSA. :confused:)

    Other than that, you shouldn't have any problems.

    I have some personal experience with vaping in Vegas. I've done two separate week long trips with my gear. The first trip was years ago with less advanced gear at the time, the more recent trip was last August...had a mech, few drippers, a 50 watt device, a tank, charger, 4 batteries...and no problem. I could vape where I wanted with no one to give me a hard time about. I did end up burning through the liquid that I brought with me so I ended up buying a few bottles on the strip. There were two places on the strip, one in front of planet Hollywood..they were OK, kind of a strange place..it was a little kiosk. Juice was so so..to much PG for my tastes. The second place was in the shopping plaza in front of planet Hollywood. Much more traditional shop that focused more on the high power/authentic crowd but a decent selection of juice. You'll be good to go.

    I have traveled a lot with my gear. Even with the carry on ability. I separated some items. Mods were in computer bag and knapsack, same with juice and RTAs. Just in case something happened to one of the bags that I was carrying on.

    :sleep:

    Silicone sleeves or case for all you 18650's. When I get on a plane the atomizer is removed from the mod. The mod is disabled with 5 clicks and/or the battery is removed to it's silicone sleeve and everything is in carry on. The airline would like us to do everything possible to minimize the chance of overheating a battery.

    You got all the right advice, and lucky you, you're going to vape mecca. You might want to bring more juice! Glass bottle in a ziplock, checked bag. I've taken weeks of juice with me that way.

    Oh and 60ml's for 5 day's ?, I brought 8 - 30 ml bottles for a 7 day trip, came back home with full bottles but it was Puerto Rico were I didn't want to have to rely on ever needing to search for a vape shop but if your one that enjoys spending your time in vape shops ( there pretty much all the same, overpriced everything ) then enjoy that and I wish you safe travels ..........
    Pack your juice in a separate baggie, same with cotton

    Since the coils on an RTA lasts so much longer than Coik heads, i woukd take a subtank mini and your favorite RTA.

    Thought I'd add something that I thought about. If you don't want to take building supplies with you, you could wrap up some coils and put them in one of those medicine containers for the week. You could get one for a few days wroth of pills, and in each day pop in a separate coil or if you do dual coils, pop each pair into one. That way you have some spare coils just in case and don't have to carry everything you need to rebuild, just a bit of cotton, the screwdriver you already got, some small scissors and maybe another tool to help mount the coils.

    Definitely more juice if you don't want to have to buy any. You can never take too much juice with you lol.

    Thanks for all of the wonderful advice!!!

    I have added a an extra coil for each atomizer and cotton.

    I typically only use about 6ml of e-liquid per day. I was thinking that doubling that would be sufficient, but another 30ml will not take up much room, so will have 90ml. Better safe than sorry!

    If i had an RTA i liked as well or better than a tank

    I would takd tge RTA.

    Get a Ziploc of cotton, a few coils and two screwdrivers.

    One to tighten tge screws and another yo hold the coils in place as you tighten thr leads.

    Put this bag in the checked baggage

    I spent 3 of the last 6 weeks away on business/pleasure and I brought the following:

    2-3 mods (a Provari tube, a SX Mini and a Provari Radius)
    A 2 battery charger (just a cheap SODA)
    Batteries in all mods but 2 extras
    45-60ml of juice
    A 5 pack of extra coils

    I didn't bother with drippers or RBAs. Also, I don't like subohming in hotels as you can set off the fire alarm. I prefer to use my Provari @ 12-13w in hotels and rental cars.

    I also check where the nearest vape store is relative to my hotel.

    I got worried I cut my liquid too close when I was in Vegas just a few weeks ago, and WHILE googling for a vape shop, BOOM, I walked by an NJoy-stand. RIght off the "strip". Got a bottle from their "Artist collection".
    Yuck. I can't vape it - too used to my DIY I guess...

    Anyway - your list looks pretty extensive.
    You need your liquid in a baggie for YOUR security - I actually never bother pulling it out of my carryon, and in at least 50 flights, no one's ever asked me to. Tanks are bound to leak if full due to air pressure change.
    And CARRY ON for batteries (I carryon all of it but the charger, and sometimes the rebuild kit) - you're not allowed batteries in checked luggage.
