After months of being under a "stay at home" order -- just you and your vape -- you may be starting to feel a little stir crazy and ready to chase clouds somewhere (anywhere!) else. Before you set to the skies with your device front and center in your carry-on, there are a few precautions you should take to ensure going from Point A to B won't smack you like a harsh throat hit:
Check your airport's rules on vaping BEFORE you check-in. Some of the biggies like LAX and Sea-Tac aren't cool with you just "whipping it out" in public (sorry, that sounded wrong). Some countries (like Argentina, Hong Kong and Singapore) have entirely banned vaping at ALL airports. Boo. You can find a comprehensive list of where you can and can't "vape on the fly" here.
Don't even try to sneak a hit on the actual plane. Vaping isn't smoking, but this still isn't 1960. Keep your vape gear stowed out of sight (i.e., don't try to stealthily charge it) or risk having it confiscated by the flight attendant. Some people find it more annoying than a seat back in their lap to be forced to endure a cloud of Iced Watermelon Limeade to the face. Personally, I think those people are crazy because IWL is delicious.
Your Baton and certain other vaping supplies like batteries are precious cargo and belong in your carry-on, not your checked bag. Wouldn't want TSA assuming the worst now, would you? Be prepared to drop it in the bin with your cell phone, keys and other items that require a closer eye during the X-ray. Make sure your refillable pods aren't actually filled for the scan.
That pesky three ounce rule still applies to vape juice, too! Fortunately Baton's got you covered with its 10ml (0.34 ounce each) nic-salt bottles. You're going to want to keep them stored in a plastic baggie in case the air pressure causes them to leak en route. You can pack larger amounts of juice in your checked bag.
Once you're squared away in your rental car, keep your device stored out of your pocket and away from direct sunlight. You may be a fan of the warm beachy sun, but your vape sure isn't!
