The e-cig unit itself should be brought in with you on board as part of the carry-on luggage.
This is because Vape batteries are now banned worldwide in checked luggage, meaning units and extra lithium batteries should be placed in carry-ons.

Just make sure to follow the protocol and put the E-liquid in a clear plastic bag alongside your other liquids.
For bigger batteries, include them in your checked in luggage. It’s also a really good idea to empty your tank before you get on the plane.
