If you like to travel and vape at the same time, know that your vaping device may cause a few questions at the airport and other places where you’re going. If you want to save yourself from all the hassle, you need to learn how to travel as a vaper.
Here are seven tips to help you travel while making the most out of your vaping experience:
- Know the rules of the airline
Before your departure date, make sure that you take some time to learn about the rules of your specific airline when it comes to vape products. The good news is that vaping has become common, so you can easily find this information on the airline’s website.
Keep your vaping device in your hand carry
Almost all airlines don’t require vape devices to be included in your checked luggage. So, keep it in your carry-on luggage instead and make sure the device is turned off before even reaching the airport.
Pack your e-juice with other liquids
Since you’ll be adding your vaping device and products in your carry-on luggage, place them along with your other liquid items. So, when you reach the security checkpoint, you only have one package to remove from your bag that is full of liquids.
Keep your batteries secure
Know that your vaping device runs on lithium-ion batteries, which are powerful. This type of battery can cause a short circuit when a metal object touches the battery's positive terminal. Before you travel, cover the battery terminals with electrical tape and place them in a padded bag. Most airlines will require you to include your batteries in your carry-on as well.
Learn about local laws
Wherever you’re going, it’s important to familiarize yourself with the vaping laws of the land. Although vaping is becoming more common these days, you’re still travelling to a different place, so you need to be respectful of their rules. Keep in mind that some countries still ban selling e-juice with nicotine. If you’re going to any country that has this ban in place, it’s best to pack enough e-juice with you!
Furthermore, there are countries that typically ban vaping completely, so you need to be mindful of this before you take your vaping device with you. You don’t want your device to be confiscated at the airport, and potentially lose it for good!
Pack your chargers
Don’t forget to pack your chargers. It never hurts to pack various types of chargers, so grab as many as you can, especially if you vape frequently.
Turn your vape tank upside down
Know that the pressure within an aeroplane can also affect your vaping device. Vapers usually keep the tank of their vaping device up, but the e-juice may get forced downwards due to the air pressure, which will make it go into the coil head and flow out of the airflow holes. Avoid this by placing the tank upside down throughout the flight or even empty it before heading to the airport.
If you frequently travel and want to make the most out of your vaping experience, make sure to remember the useful tips given above. When you do so, you can effectively avoid going through various hassles when you’re at the airport. Most importantly, having a vaping device at the wrong place can bring serious consequences.
