Dear fellow traveler
Just an update to inform smoking travelers (I am not one of them) : This has been rumored for quite some time but it is now Official : It is now forbidden to check-in electronic cigarettes or any other vapor device in your check-in luggage. There has been some incidents proving that such vapor devices can be hazardous in the check-in luggage compartment.
You can still bring an e-cigarette as a carry-on although you cannot, of course, vape on the plane.
Since we are on the subject on forbidden items to check-in when traveling by plane, I would like to take this opportunity to remind fellow photographers that batteries also can only be carried-on and not checked-in, not that it would be a good idea anyway to leave extra batteries in your checked luggage. Technically there are in some countries some limits on how many batteries you can carry with you but in all my worldwide travels I have never had an instance when this was checked
