Should You Vape On The Plane?
Vaping is the current trend common all across the world. You can see people vaping in public places everywhere you go. People who are in to vaping like having their vapes with them as they go about daily life. They have their vape juice and extra batteries packed inside their bags or kept in their pockets, where they can take them out whenever they feel the need to use it. Vapers have delighted in the fact that they can carry their e-cig even to the most public of places – well that is, until airplanes were decided to be no vape zones.
This has been a cause for celebration to people who absolutely resent smoking of any kind. But vapers have been alarmed and offended by having their favorite hobby banned during air travel. But for the understanding of both vapers and non-vapers alike, here are the reasons why vaping on planes is prohibited.
The first and probably the heaviest concern that airline companies have is regarding the batteries contained by e-cigs. Similar to the reason why traditional smoking was banished in the early years, lithium-ion batteries are believed to be fire hazards. If you’ve noticed some security restrictions regarding your gadgets, this is because lithium-ion batteries are present in them too. You’ve probably heard of some of these devices causing explosions in flights, becoming breaking news all over the world, and with these in mind, we can’t just ignore the possible risks of lithium-ion batteries. But don’t be alarmed as you can still bring you lithium-ion batteries with you, just don’t include it in checked baggage. So be sure to put those batteries in proper casing or in the mod, and remember to remove them from your bag for security checking much like you do with your phone.
Another cause of concern for those running the airline is the vapor. The majority of people see any smoke that comes from someone’s mouth as the result of a cigarette. With this mindset, the fire scare is increased and anxiety arises among passengers.
If you’re thinking about going to the lavatory to vape, then don-t even consider it as it is also prohibited. While you may not be disturbing anyone or causing anxiety to arise among fellow passengers, you’ll definitely be alarming the advanced smoke detectors that they’ve installed. You wouldn’t want to begin the blaring of alarms at 30,000 feet and face charges, now would you?
You probably are about to throw a tantrum right now, but remember that there is hope – you can vape right away when you land. Be the one to break the stereotype and represent the vaping community as best as you can by abiding by the law and not facing authorities. Hold on, soon you will see the change brought by good actions.
