VaporFi shows how a little planning and a few e-cig accessories can go a long way on your next trip
Whether you are traveling for work, for pleasure or for the holidays, bringing along your trusty digital cigarette companion is most likely high on the priority list.
Even with all the various forms of travel – from planes to cars to cruise ships – there are some standard suggestions of how to properly store your e-cig and keep it safe during your trip.
First and foremost, here is a list of everything related to your e-cig that you should remember to pack:
Now that you know what all you should take, check out some specific suggestions for various types of travel.
Plane – You are permitted to travel with your digital cigarette on an airplane, but do not use it while on board. When flying with your device, one recommendation is to disconnect the battery and put it in another bag to avoid setting off an alarm at the security checkpoint. Also, don't make it look so inconspicuous that people may be concerned as to what it is. Be open about the fact that you are packing your most precious traveling companion!
It is also important to store your e-liquid properly when you are onboard a plane. The TSA (Transportation Security Administration) has a webpage explaining the exact rules for traveling with liquid. First, you need to make sure your e-liquid is not in a bottle larger than 3.4 ounces. Secondly, these containers must be in one quart-sized clear plastic bag. Each person is allowed only one of these bags.
Lastly, we suggest keeping all of your digital cigarette supplies with you. Do not pack them away, but rather have them with you in your carry-on bag on the plane.
If you abide by the rules of the plane, you will be fine. Just don't do anything that looks suspicious or try to push the rules, otherwise you could be without your device for the whole trip!
Car – Traveling with your digital cigarette by car is fairly straightforward. Don't forget to bring your car charger and only light up as long as everyone in the car is okay with it. Just be courteous.
Cruise Ship – It is completely up to the cruise line as to whether or not you are allowed to vape while on onboard the ship. Research each cruise line's policies before booking your trip if this is important to you. Most are fine with it as long as it is not done in the dining hall.
If you are traveling with your e-cig, the main piece of advice we can offer is to be courteous. When in doubt, always ask before vaping. Also, if other people ask questions about your device, answer them politely. Please, don't give vapers a bad rap by being rude and blatantly ignoring the rules.
