How to Properly Pack your E-Cigarette for Travel

Vaping at home or work might be routine at this point, but how about when traveling? If you have an upcoming holiday vacation or business trip on the horizon, we’re here to ensure that you and your vape gear are properly prepared.

By following these helpful packing tips and travel regulations, leaving home does not have to mean leaving your E-Cig behind.

Packing Essentials



Whether you use a Box Mod, Pen-Style, or Pod System, this is the most important item to include in your vape travel kit.

e-cig batteries


Traveling can mean that charging outlets are not as accessible as they would be at home. To avoid a drained battery and save yourself frustration, pack an extra battery to ensure your device won’t run out juice when you want to vape. Be sure that charge your batteries fully before departing. Be sure to store your batteries in a silicone sleeve or plastic case. NEVER leave batteries loose, in your pockets, near metal objects, in water, or on hot or humid / moist surfaces.

e-cig chargers


Make sure to pack a charger for when you do have access to an outlet. It never hurts to pack a few types of chargers: car, wall, or computer, depending on how you are traveling.

vape eliquid


This one depends on a vaper’s average consumption. Before heading out on vacation, take into account how much eLiquid you typically use in one day, then make sure to bring enough for as many days as you’ll be gone. Keep in mind, if you are going on vacation, you may use even more. Since finding an out of town store to restock is a waste of valuable vacation time, stock up here before your trip.

E-Cig Accessories

To make traveling easier and ensure your E-Cig stays safe, you may want to invest in accessories like a carrying case, battery carrying case, or lanyard.

How Are You Traveling?

Different modes of transportation will have different regulations and best practices for traveling with your E-Cig. Keep in mind these regulations are in place to keep people safe. Violation can lead to having your E-Cig confiscated, or worse.



While you are permitted to travel with your E-Cig, usage while onboard an aircraft is strictly prohibited. When packing your E-Cig, we recommend you separate the battery from the device. In accordance with TSA regulations, E-Cig users must store their equipment in their carry-on luggage or on their person, not their checked bag. Make sure your eLiquid is in a container that is 3.4 ounces or less to abide by the TSA liquid regulations. Having multiple containers is permitted, but they all must fit into one clear, quart-size plastic bag with the rest of your liquids. Regulations may change at any time, please make sure to check out the TSA website before you fly.

Cruise Ship

Check with the cruise line to be sure whether or not vaping is allowed onboard. Many like Carnival, Royal Caribbean, and Norwegian Cruise Line are okay with it, but only in designated areas.



Smoking onboard all Amtrak trains, Thruway buses, and stations is strictly prohibited. If time permits, passengers may smoke on station platforms as announced by the train crew. Like with planes, it is best to disconnect or remove the battery to ensure the E-Cig is turned off.



As long as you brought your car charger, you should be good to go. However, if you’re traveling with non-smokers, ask if they’re OK with vaping, before you puff.

Enjoy Your Trip

No matter where you’re traveling or how you’re getting there, remember to always be courteous of others, before vaping. When in doubt, ask an authority or do some research to ensure you’re following the most up to date regulations—preferably, before heading out on your journey. Once you know what to expect, making sure you’ve got all the E-Cig necessities we suggested will ensure smooth vaping throughout your trip.

Wherever your journeys take you, we hope you enjoy traveling with your E-Cig!
