E-Cigarette Laws and Travel

E-Cigs are often thought to be the safe cousin of traditional cigarettes, yet as time passes it has become clear that they have many risks of their own.  Stories have surfaced of e-cigs catching fire and that clearly poses a danger during air travel.  In efforts to eliminate this issue, the Department of Transportation has banned electronic smoking devices from checked baggage and now prohibits charging the device in-flight.  “Passengers may continue to carry e-cigarettes for personal use in carry-on baggage or on their person but may not use them on flights.”  Get more information here.
