Vapes are atomized electronics because of their special properties and structure; they are treated specially when transported.
China produces most vape in the world, because of the value of vape and the properties of fast products, China exports shipping vape mostly by air freight. Vape is built with batteries inside, which is considered dangerous, air freight and sea freight have strict requirements for it.
What Causes Vape Transportation Difficulties?
Vapes are also e-cigarettes or atomizers. Their basic components are PCB, rechargeable batteries, and various electronic circuits.
Vape liquid is an e-atomization liquid used in conjunction with vape. Heated by an e-smoke converter, it produces smoke like a cigarette. Smoke oil is a liquid, and the airline treats all liquids as suspicious, dangerous goods. They do this to prevent employee, equipment, and other goods risk. Therefore, you should know that shipping companies are sensitive to liquid products or products with liquids. They refuse to transport vape with liquid.
The vape power supply is a lithium battery which is dangerous cargo because it is flammable. Although lithium batteries are often found in everyday items, they can be a fire hazard in land and air transport. Since all lithium batteries are considered dangerous, regulations are in place to ensure their safe transportation. Most airlines list cargo with built-in lithium batteries as dangerous and banned from air freight.
In transportation, vape with built-in batteries is sensitive, so shipping companies restrict atomizers.
Because of the structure of the vape, it cannot be used as an ordinary item for transportation. That is why carriers severely restrict air transport to them. Special treatment is required when transporting. However, you still can transport these vapes by air and courier.

Failure to provide MSDS or MSDS irregularities increases the risk of trade disruption.

Lithium Battery Label
When air transporting, any shipment containing lithium batteries exceeds the requirements of IATA, and lithium batteries need to be carefully labeled on the surface of the packaging.
