Vape Travelling: A Guide for Vaping On-the-Go
Traveling is an exciting adventure that allows us to see the world, experience different cultures, and to view life in a different perspective. You can say that exploring new flavours can be similar, as it is a different setting for your taste buds. However, traveling with a vape comes with its own set of rules and considerations. To help you embark on your vaping adventures without any hiccups, we've gathered essential tips from reliable sources on how to pack e-juice, batteries, and devices for your next flight. So let’s get right into it!
Take Off! - Flying With Vape Devices and Batteries
Pack Them in Your Carry-On: Always keep your vaping devices and batteries in your cabin luggage or your pocket. Avoid packing them in checked baggage to prevent the risk of losing them or having your luggage mishandled. This can be very stressful if done improperly, so try your best to have your devices on you!
Use Battery Cases: If you're carrying extra batteries, ensure they are safely stored in plastic battery cases to prevent accidents or short-circuiting. You don’t want to be the one responsible for bringing the plane down!
Don't Forget a Battery Charger: If your mod uses external batteries, remember to bring a compatible battery charger. This is crucial for keeping your devices powered throughout your journey. A dead vape is an unhappy camper!
Consider Disposable Vapes: For short trips, consider using disposable vapes. They are convenient, require no charger, and eliminate the need to pack separate e-liquid containers. Nice and simple!
Partial Tank Filling: Due to cabin pressure, full tanks can sometimes leak during flights. To avoid this, either fill your tanks partially or leave them empty and fill them when you arrive at your destination. A pocket full of juice is the last thing you need!
Packed Up and Ready to Go! Important Tips for Packing
When it comes to packing e-juice for air travel, it's essential to adhere to regulations set by the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) and other relevant authorities. Here's what you need to know so you can enjoy your trip, while still enjoying your favourite flavours:
Bottle Size, Packaging and Max Liquid Limit: All liquids, including e-juice, must be in bottles of 100 mL or smaller. The maximum liquid you can bring is up to 1L. So you can bring up to 10 bottles if you are carrying them all in 100mL bottles! Regulations then mention that these bottles should fit into a single 1-quart plastic bag. Be sure to include your e-juice in this bag along with other liquid items like toothpaste, shampoo, and deodorant. Make sure it is sealed tight, as you don’t want your toiletries to smell like e-juice!
Consider Checked Luggage: If you’re carrying more e-juice that exceeds the 1-quart bag, you can place it in your checked luggage. However, it is best to double-bag your juice to prevent potential leaks that could ruin your clothes. E-juice stains are hard to clean off your clothes!
Be Mindful of Pressure: Cabin pressures constantly change during flights. If you have full bottles of e-liquid, it can potentially expand or even split at the seams. To avoid this, consider carrying partially used bottles with some empty space at the top. A bag full of loose e-juice is not considered fun to clean!
Adjust Nicotine Strength: For convenience, you may want to consider carrying e-juice with a higher nicotine strength than your usual preference. This can help you reduce the amount of e-liquid you need to bring along. This can make your travels smoother and stress free!
Know International Limits: If you're traveling to European Union countries or other regions with nicotine strength limits, double check what their nicotine cap is. Ensure your e-juice complies with their regulations, which often limits nicotine content at 20 mg/mL. You don’t want to rid your e-juice once you have landed!
