4 Essential Travelling Tips for Vapers

Travelling as a vaper can be a breeze depending on where you go and how you carry yourself. It can also be a literal nightmare depending on your destination and if you don’t know how to travel with a vape pen correctly. Laws and regulations are still sporadic around vape pens, and many jurisdictions still don’t know how to take them, so it’s essential that you know some of the do’s and don’ts of travelling as a vaper before you leave. Here are a few travelling tips every vaper needs to know.

Understand Your Vape

A lot of things can affect your vape’s performance while travelling and it’s important that you understand how your vape works in different conditions before you leave. Changes in pressure mid-air for instance could cause your tanks to leak, so it would be wise to completely empty them before taking off. You should also know the basics about proper usage of your vape pen and battery safety as well. Make sure that you never store your extra batteries anywhere near loose change or magnets. And also know if there will be any outlets where you’ll be staying that will allow you to recharge your pen safely.

Know the Rules

If you want to get through airport security as easily as possible, it’s essential that you know the rules. First of all, you should know that you aren’t allowed to keep your vape pen in your checked bags. This is because poorly packed or defective li-on batteries have been known to cause fires and could be a hazard. You can, however, carry your vape pen with you as long as it is turned off. And you can carry e-liquid with you under a certain limit.

If you want to facilitate things when going through security, completely disassemble your vape’s components and keep them in a nice carrier. And if, by any chance, you can’t go through with your vape pen, it would be a wise idea to keep a self-addressed envelope with enough space in it for your pen so you can send it back home in case there are any issues with it.

Know that you won’t be able to use your vape pen in the plane or charge it either. That’s why it would be wise that you invest in a portable charger before you leave to make things more convenient so you can charge your pen in between flights and wherever you are on the road. You can find a variety of chargers on a UKEcigStore like greyhaze.co.uk for instance.

When it comes to vaping in the airport, most won’t allow it. However, many will have spots dedicated to smokers and vapers, so be aware of where they are before you leave in case you need to get a quick session off before your flight.

Know the Laws Where You’re Going

While there are little restrictions on vaping in most western countries, it isn’t the case everywhere else. In Thailand for instance, vaping is completely forbidden and they take prosecution very seriously. If you’re ever caught trying to enter the country with a vape device, penalties could go from a fine to even imprisonment.

Many Gulf states like the UAE, Oman and Qatar also have very strict laws against vaping. This is mainly due to concerns about the nicotine content of vape juices. And even seemingly very liberal countries like Brazil have also imposed a ban on vaping since 2014 because of issues with safety and the manufacturing of vaping products. So never assume vaping is allowed in the country you’re going to and get informed first.

In other cases, most jurisdictions will have restrictions on how you can use vape pens under their territory. For instance, a lot of US cities have laws regulating outdoor and indoor vaping. In California for example, vaping falls under the same set of laws as smoking. This goes as well if you wanted to visit New York city. Also, many states completely ban the use of vape pens in outdoor areas and parks, so make sure that you understand the laws and regulations wherever you go if you don’t want to get hit with fines, or worse.

Know Your Surroundings

Even if you are totally allowed to use your vape pen, make sure that you are aware of your surroundings at all times and follow some proper etiquette rules. If you’re at the pool and you see a couple next to you recoiling in disgust because of your vaping, take their concerns into consideration. Be a good example and try to be as accommodating as possible, or even take the time to explain a little bit more about vape pens instead of being antagonising so they might have a more positive view of them in the future.

These few tips will help make your next trip as a vaper as easy as possible. If you manage to follow these tips, you should be able to avoid complications and enjoy a nice trip with your pen of choice.
