So I'm heading to Vegas with the wife next month for a quick 4 days anniversary trip . Yes, I'm stoked about going, never been there before. I don't plan on checking a big bag, only a carry on. Now, if I plan on bringing my mod should I worry about not being allowed to bring it on board, especially if I'm bring e juice on board. I know liquids aren't allowed. It will be seen in the x-ray machine.

We all know how anal the TSA is.

What to do?

Thanks!

Not a big deal at all.

Just make sure your E-Liquids are in 30ml bottles or less and stored in a sealed quart Ziploc bag.

Make sure your extra batteries are in some kind of case. If you don't have a case, order one or go to your local pharmacy and get a pill bottle of the proper size. They may or may not charge you for them but if they do it will be something like 25 cents.

Do all of the above and you are golden.

Actually, bottles can be up to 100 ml, and you can have more than one of them...

I'd pull batteries out of mods and put in a battery case.
Personally, I tank any tanks empty, or off, wrapped in paper towel and in something like a film canister - with air pressure changes, MOST tanks will leak, and there's not much to do about it. This approach still gets you vaping pretty quick upon landing - slap the tank back, battery in, fill and vape.

Hey brother all the right advice above.

On another note I'm loving all the goodies you sent! Vaping the prelude with my morning coffee as I type this

Happy early anniversary!

Just got back from Vegas. I brought 2 mods 2 tanks, 3 30 mil bottles of juice, battery charger, and a spare pair of batteries. All. In my Cary on bag. No issues once so ever. Just make sure your tank is empty before you board the plane, or you will have a big mess when you land. Every tank will leak. It doesn't matter if it has juice flow control. Or not.

I was also told that liquids can be transported in 30 ml bottles. And what is beyond the norm, they throw in the trash. So my expensive perfume flew away.
@MrMontana Welcome to VU! :cheers:

To go through TSA you can carry on as many bottles that can fit in a single 1 quart ziplock bag. The bottles need to be 100ml/3.4 ounces or less. That perfume they tossed must have been in a larger bottle. If you want to bring a larger bottle, put it in your checked luggage. @Train explains this here: http://vapingunderground.com/threads/how-to-travel-by-plane-with-your-vape.315954/#post-1664195

I travel a lot for work and always bring 4 mods, 4 spare batteries, and 4 50ml bottles of e-liquid. The mods and batteries I place in a bowl or bin so the x-ray agent can see what they are without pawing through my backpack. Making their life easier makes my life easier. I use PreCheck so my liquid ziplock bag stays in my backpack through the x-ray.

When I flew in 2016:

Lithium batteries must be in carry on luggage, you are allowed the batteries in the device + 2 spare sets. So if the device takes 1 then you could take 3 (1 in + 2 out), if it takes 2 then you could have a total of 6 batteries (2 in + 4 out). This is allowed per device so you can take multiple devices to take more batteries. The security people may not even bother counting them to verify, or the airline may have it's own stricter rules so look up their regulations before booking a flight. Security people may want to look in the bag after it goes through the xray due to the batteries and mod showing up on their screen.

Eliquid is subject to carry on limits unless in checked luggage (I took 4x 240ml bottles with no issues at all). If you put it in checked luggage then make sure it is securely closed and bagged. I used vacuum sealed bags for mine. Checked luggage isn't stored in a pressurized area so you don't want the liquid to leak out and get over everything else.

Fwiw airlines now allows 12oz "hand sanitizer"
"How about that?" They let you carry improvised Sterno into a pressurized cabin. Be something if they allow the ladies carry on acetone based nail polish remover as well. Interesting times indeed.

I complained to TSA at the start of covd19.. I was "in a mood"..then a few weeks later I saw the news.

My hand sanitizer has a sugar cookies smell.. And should last me about 12 days.
