Vape on an Airplane

Using a vaping device in a plane isn’t allowed, but that doesn’t mean you can’t bring it with you. According to, Airport authorities are quite reasonable with it as long as you follow their guidelines which are as follows:


Store your e-liquid in a small transparent plastic bottle, then seal the bottle with tape before putting it in a transparent 1-qt pouch. The bottle size should be 3.4 oz or 100 ml. E-liquid less than 100 ml or 3.4 oz is also allowed.

Avoid using a small glass bottle to prevent leakage caused by glass breaking. If you have to use a glass bottle, wrap it with a thick layer of bubble wrap or newspaper.

The e-liquid should not fill up the whole bottle. This is because the air pressure inside the plane can split the bottle by expanding it. To avoid this, the bottle should be partially filled or should have enough space at the top.

The pouch lets you bring more than one small bottle if needed and it must also have a zipper on top. Transparent bottles and pouches that are appropriate for e-liquids can be found at drugstores and travel stores.

Vaping Device

Switch off your device and take it apart. Individually wrap its components in a bubble wrap or a soft cloth, and then put them in a small transparent pouch or in a small resealable plastic bag.

You should only bring one device in the plane. If you bring more than one, the airport authorities will question you and you won’t be able to board the plane.

Ensure that your vape tank is empty. Otherwise, the e-liquid inside will expand because of the air pressure in the plane and this will cause the vape tank to leak.

If your plane trip is short, you can take a disposable vape so that you don’t need to bring a battery charger and an e-liquid.

Vape Batteries

Avoid leaving batteries in your vape, especially if it’s accidentally turned on. This will cause the batteries to start a fire from overheating.

Dry batteries like AA, AAA, C, and D should be placed in a plastic or rubber battery case.

The battery case prevents fire or explosion caused by batteries touching other metal objects like keys or coins. You can also bring a vape battery charger, but make sure that you don’t use it in the plane.

Avoid bringing batteries that have damaged or torn wrapping. They can also cause an explosion or fire when in contact with other metals.

If you have to bring lithium batteries, make sure that they have a rating of 100 watt hours to prevent fire or explosion in the plane. If you can’t remove batteries from your vaping device, just remove the atomizer from the device.

E-liquid, vaping device, and vape batteries should always be in a carry-on luggage as required by the airport authorities. Putting them in check-in luggage is quite risky because no one will be in the cargo area to check on them if something bad will happen.


Put these tips in mind to have an easy travel on the plane with your vaping devices.
