How to Travel With Your Vape Gear
Headed out of town for work or pleasure? Regardless, you're going to want to take some vape gear to keep you company! Here are some helpful hints to make your journey a pleasant one.
If traveling by land:
Packing is all up to you on this one – you're probably going to want to bring some spare batteries, your charger, and at least one mod and a tank (though we always recommend backups, and backups for your backups!). The biggest concern here is making sure that you've got at least one change of batteries handy if you'll be able to vape as you travel, allowing you to change out on the fly. Make sure to keep everything securely packed – e-liquids go in secured, waterproof containers, batteries NEED to be in cases that will prevent them from accidentally contacting other metal objects or one another, as this could create a fire hazard – see our previous post on this one.
If traveling by air:
The TSA has recently banned e-cigarettes from traveling in checked luggage, largely due to fire/explosion concerns from "wheeled hoverboards" and batteries improperly stowed. That doesn't mean, however, that you're out of luck.
First, your mods and batteries need to be in your carry-on – take your batteries out of your mod and put them in an appropriate carrying case. You may be asked to take these items out of your bag for inspection, but don't worry – TSA has seen plenty of these devices by now.
Next, for your vape juice – like anything else liquid, you need to keep your e-liquid in bottles 3 oz. (90 ml) or smaller, and all of your bottles (including your shampoos, soaps, or whatever else you might be packing) need to fit in a quart-size plastic zipper bag. You can take as many bottles as you can stuff in, but remember the size limit, and if you're going to be gone for a while you may need to visit a local shop, have Breazy send a juice delivery to your hotel, or settle for using the hotel's shampoo brand for a few days.
In summary: keep your batteries safe, don't try to hide your gear (follow the rules and all will be fine), and don't worry. Bon voyage!
