I am off to Florida in the near future flying with Virgin Atlantic from Gatwick and was wondering if anyone knows the general policy for carrying vaping kit on the plane. From what I gather I have to keep it in my hand luggage and all liquid has to be in a zip lock bag. Does anyone know if I can take 18650 batteries in my hand luggage (I was planning on taking 4) and also what is the max eliquid I can take, (I was planning on taking 3 x 50ml bottles). finally what are the rules when coming back to the UK from Florida

Virgin Atlantic state that e-cigs are permitted in carry-on hand luggage, but may not be used onboard. Liquids, creams, pastes and gels in a single clear ziplock bag (for carry-on baggage), with each bottle being less than 100ml and total less than 1 litre. Other liquids can be in checked baggage. If your e-liquid bottles have toxic skull and crossbones warning... re-bottle/re-label them. Spare lithium ion batteries also appear okay, these should be in hand luggage or on person and in battery boxes to avoid the risk of short circuit. The rules appear the same both to and from the USA.
