Planning a Flight with your E-cigarette? Here's what you need to know!
Posted by Jason Thompson on
If you're planning a flight and have an e-cigarette to bring with you, don't worry. You can definitely bring it with you with a bit of preparation!
You will want to keep anything with a battery in your carry on luggage (like all other electronics) - and always store your batteries properly. Battery cases for external (removable) batteries are the best, and safest, way to do this. If you don’t have a battery case, put each battery into an individual bag to ensure they cannot touch anything else or each other. If you have a mod with a built in (non-removable) battery, it will be fine as is.
When flying with e-liquid, the same liquid limits and rules apply as any other liquids on your carry on - 100ml per bottle limit. Store any larger bottles in your checked luggage, and only take what you absolutely need with you on your carry on, in their original packaging. Like any other liquids, you must bag them into a plastic bag with a zipper seal.
You are free to bring any other accessories on your carry on - with the exception of any sharp objects. If you have a tank filled with e-liquid, make sure you empty it first to avoid leaking. If you don’t want to empty your tank, you can store it upside down to help minimize leakage. You will also want to store any tanks or e-liquid in a well sealed plastic bag, this way any e-liquid that does leak will be contained.
Tanks and other accessories without batteries can be put into your checked luggage without issue. If you have any e-liquid in your tanks, you will want to empty them to avoid leaking. You will also want to store any tanks or e-liquid in a well sealed plastic bag or container, this way any e-liquid that does leak will be contained.
Above all, be honest about what you have with you when asked. E-cigarettes are popular enough now, airport security will likely be familiar with what they are, and not cause any problems. They are there to help you and keep you safe. If you have a question about how or where to store items, they will likely be able to help.
Have a good flight!
