E-cigarettes have replaced regular cigarettes for many people. For travelers especially, using an e-cig, rather than carrying around packs or cartons of smokes, makes the suitcase much lighter. It is also easier to find a place to smoke e-cigarettes versus finding a place near airports, restaurants, or hotel rooms to smoke regular cigarettes. Though traveling with an e-cigarette is easier, it does not come without some challenges. Here are three items that you should always have with you when traveling with an e-cigarette.
The box for the item
Although it may seem like it takes up unnecessary space, you will want to bring the box or bag that your e-cigarette device came in. This will be especially important when going through security at airports or trains. If your e-cigarette gives the appearance of an electronic device or if it looks like a regular cigarette or lighter, you may be pulled over for extra inspection. In order to explain the item itself, you should place the e-cigarette inside of the box during travel. This act will also keep the device safe from being squashed or broken inside of a full backpack or suitcase.
Bring the liquid ingredients
If you regularly travel outside of your home country, you know that laws tend to change from place to place. In some nations, certain ingredients are banned and are not allowed to be used while in the country. In order to save yourself from having to throw out your e-cigarette liquid, you should bring along the list of ingredients. This will allow customs and border control the knowledge to know if something is legally safe or not. If customs is suspicious of the item having certain banned additives and you do not have an ingredients list, you will likely be made to throw away your liquid and not be able to find an exact replacement within the nation.
Bring the charger and adapter
E-cigarettes are easy to charge, but you will need to remember to bring along the charger and adapter. When you are in other regions, finding an exact match to a charger can be like finding a needle in a haystack. In addition, you may find yourself needing to charge in random places including hotel lobbies, inside of taxis, and more. Bring along the charger along with an adapter plug that will work for the country that you are in. Any time you are near an electrical outlet, charge your e-cigarette so that it is always ready when you are out and about.
