Vapes On A Plane

As the snow begins to melt and give way to warmer weather, more and more people will be taking vacations around the world. For anyone who vapes, that begs the question: “Can I bring my vape on a plane?” We covered this topic a bit a few years ago, but TSA travel restrictions for e-cigs have changed since then, so a refresher is in order.

The biggest change to travel restrictions for e-cigs is that battery-powered devices cannot be packed in checked luggage. This is a safety measure in case a device catches fire mid-flight. This doesn’t impact carry-on luggage, however, so you can still carry your vape on your person or in a carry-on bag.

Electronic cigarettes and vapes are treated the same way as tobacco products when it comes to onboard use, meaning you aren’t allowed to vape in your seat or in a lavatory.

Your vape’s batteries cannot be charged while onboard. When it comes to packing your vape into your carry-on or leaving it in your jacket, make sure the batteries are separated from the device itself for the duration of your travel. This makes going through security checkpoints faster and eliminates the chance of the battery and the device malfunctioning.

Store your e-juice like you would your toiletries—in a sealed plastic bag. Don’t store it in your setup’s tank!

If you’re ever uncertain as to whether or not a component of your vape is allowed on a plane, check with the TSA. They update their prohibited items listings so you know exactly what is and isn’t allowed. If the TSA’s restrictions don’t answer your question, the airline itself will always have a list of prohibited and allowed items for carry-on and checked baggage.

  1. I got back from London a few weeks ago and had no problems at all with my e cigarette, or my eliquid, I kept it on me too, only kept my 15ml Fairy Dust Elixir and they looked at it and said it was fine.

  2. Just spent 80 bux on 5 premium 30ml bottles. Stocked up for a while now. Maybe next time I'm ready to spend my money maybe this site will have a sale/discount code.

  3. Well, I had six dollars in Rewards and it didn't get deducted from my order. Contacted them immediately after placing order and got an email saying it was too late to edit my order to reflect the six dollars in Rewards subtracted from my total. Everyone knows this can be adjusted with a few keystrokes, but this customer service smells of "barn yard aroma". I hope they fix this. I'll put it out everywhere in my circle of influence if it isn't handled fairly.
