E-cigarettes have grown exponentially in popularity, with people using them to help them quit smoking or cut down. In the latest blog post from Eclipse Distribution Solutions, we take a look at how to safely ship e-cigarettes via courier.
When shipping any electronic device, it is important that you follow the national guidelines for their specific rules. There have been rare cases that e-cigarettes have exploded whilst in transit, however, these cases are very unlikely most probably caused by the lithium-ion batteries that are used to power the e-cigarettes.
When shipping an e-cigarette with a lithium battery you should ensure that the battery remains inside the vape and that the trigger or power button is secured in a way that cannot be turned on by accident.
Packaging an E-Cigarette
If you have the original package of the vape, this will come in handy as it should secure the product tightly in place. Next, you will need to package the original box in a second box.
Once the box is closed, if you can hear the E-cigarette move around, you will need to wrap bubble wrap around the vape and place it securely in the box until it doesn’t move.
When placing the original box in the second box, be sure to use packaging peanuts until the box is tightly packed in place. Finally, you will want to secure the box with packaging tape and arrange your delivery.
