Be Prepared With Enough E-Cig Supplies

This is a guest post written by Morandir835, an e-cig enthusiast, admin on the Vapor4Life forum, and a regular on their ECF sub forum.

I recently got back from a long road trip to visit family. Flying wasn’t an option because of timing and my dogs. Before switching from smoking to vaping long road trips were torture. My wife wouldn’t allow me to smoke while I drove, so I could only light up at rest stops. I didn’t have to worry about that this time. I vaped the entire time there, on the way back, during the visit, pretty much constantly.

Don’t run out of supplies

Whenever you take a long trip, whether it’s by road, train, or plane you must make sure you have enough supplies on hand. My personal rule is to take 2 to 3 times as much as I usually go through in the same time period, especially if the trip is potentially stressful.

How do I know what I need?

Here’s an easily formula to follow: If you only use prefilled cartos, bring the amount you use in one day then times that by the number of days you’ll be gone, and double it. Use the same formula for the juice (just replace number of cartos with ml’s) and batteries.

Example: If each day you typically use 3 cartos and 2 batts, and your trip is 5

days long, you will want to bring 30 cartos, and 20 batts (plus a couple of chargers).

Don’t forget…

Always bring at lease two chargers. Heavy vapers should bring a third or fourth. If you have a mod of some sort, bring multiple batts (4 if you’re using a stacked mod, 2 if you’re using a single battery mod). A wall adapter for the passthrough, and a car adapter can both be life savers if all your batts are charging. If bringing a tank, be sure to have at least 1 extra replacement carto with you.

Here’s what I brought for five days. It was a good thing that I over packed, because by the end I only had a half a bottle of Nuport WOW 36mg left!

10 – WOW blank cartos

5 – 30ml bottles of Nuport WOW 36mg

2 – 30ml bottles of Smilin Premium 36mg

4 – 30ml bottles of Wowboy 36mg

12 – Personal vaporizers (XL King Diamond and Stealths)

3 – Shorty velvet touch Vapor Titan Diamond autos

3 – Slim Line chargers

3 – Empty tanks

1 – Filled tank

4 – 2.0ohm range dual coil replacement cartos

To some that’s overkill, but as stated before, I ended up with just 15ml’s of Nuport WOW left once we were back home.

  1. Pretty much agree….last week we took a 3-day trip over to Laughlin, Nevada. As this was our first outing as vapers, we thought it all through carefully.

    And yes, indeed….multiple chargers made ‘rotating the stock’ a whole lot easier.

  2. Thank you for yet another exceptional blog. Heck I keep my 8 or 9 bottles of liquid in a ziplock, my 12 boxes of refilled & blank carts in another bag and throw them all in my backpack
    for just a 3 day weekend trip. Keep them consolidated like that all the time for another reason….we are in tornado season and besides the obvious THE ECIGS are most important to me!

  3. I’ll be taking a train trip in October…. from the looks of that stack of luggage in the picture I’m wondering….. should I requisition an additional freight car for my vaping supplies?

  4. hi i am writing this comenmt in hopes that it helps people out a little more with the e cigarette, i was an analogue smoker a few weeks before christmas 2011 and started using the e cigarette then, i have never touched an analogue cigg since and now i barely touch the e cigarette, i have even gone to no nicotine cartriages which is mainly what i wanted to bring your attention to all i read about on any of these blogs are about e liquid, and i can’t find anything on the cartriages, which, are pretty safe, they are already loaded with the e juice, there is no handling. I don’t see what the big problem is with it. I don’t mind if you quote me in another email to the ministers, i would like to know more about the laws too!! I will end this comenmt by saying that i am now a non smoker (within 2 months of using the e cigarette) thanks to the e cigarette and i getting out there and being able to excersise without being breathless is great, i am the fittest i have ever been, I personally recommend the e cigarette to anyone who wants to quit!!! Thank you for your time
