When traveling, many people naturally want to bring their vaporizers along with them, and while flying with your vaporizer was a bit of a problem in the past, it’s a lot easier and simpler now, for the most part. Let’s take a look at some of the rules regarding flying with vaporizers, as well as tips and tricks for anyone thinking of booking a flight and bringing their vaping gear along.

Can I Take A Vaporizer On A Plane?

The short answer to this question is yes. The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has declared that vapes and vaping equipment can be taken on planes, but each airline will have its own unique rules in place, so it’s wise to consult the rules for each airline before booking your flight so you know exactly what you’ll be allowed.

In general, E-cigarettes, vape pens, vape mods, and related devices like batteries, tanks, atomizers, and more can be taken on planes, but they’ll need to be placed in your carry-on bags, rather than your checked luggage.

Can I Vape On Board A Plane?

No. Just like with smoking, vaping isn’t allowed on board planes. Even charging your device’s battery on board the plane is prohibited by TSA, so be sure to leave your device packed away in your carry-on bags until you actually arrive at your destination.

Can I Fly With E-Liquids?

You can take e liquids on board your flight in most cases, but there are a few caveats to be aware of. Due to the limitations on traveling with liquids, you’ll need to ensure that all of your individual e liquid bottles contain no more than 100ml of juice in total.

Not only that, but you’ll also need to pack your e liquid bottles separately from the rest of your carry-on items, along with any other liquids you’re planning to take on board the plane. This is so that the security staff can inspect your liquids quickly and keep the line moving at the airport.

Can I Vape In The Airport?

Smoking and vaping are both banned in airports in all common areas and restrooms. You may find some smoking rooms in certain airports where vaping will be allowed, but these areas are increasingly rare.

What About Batteries?

Lithium-ion batteries, which are the kind of batteries typically found inside vaporizers, are not allowed in checked luggage. They can only be carried in your carry-on, and some airlines may even have limitations on the number of batteries you can bring with you.

These kinds of batteries need to be stored in the carry-on bags as there have been cases in which they have caused fires or even explosions, which could be disastrous if undetected in the cargo hold.


As the vaping industry continues to grow and more and more smokers make the switch to e-cigarettes, other industries and authorities have had to adapt to this changing world. It took a little time, and there’s still progress to be made, but airlines have finally started to make it much easier to travel with your vapes. By following the information and advice listed above, you shouldn’t encounter any more issues or worries about flying with a vaporizer.
