    devices ok. liquid ok (put liquid in checked baggage). make sure batteries are safe and packed nicely in hand luggage.
    good luck and welcome.

    sorry for my bad grammar.
    amount saved by not smoking: $lots
    amount spent on vaping: $not enough

    Bring Nicotine !! - Can't buy in Australia - suggest you find a large bottle of 36+ mg Nic liquird to bring with . . . then you'll be able to dilute down with local doublers. . .

    All batteries need to be in cabin (carry on luggage). Put batteries in a container, or tape the ends. Devices in carry on or checked.

    I would not. it may be classed as a food product or derivative when you enter and you may lose it. check in your liquid to be sure.

    Here's what the Australian customs site has to say: Alcohol/Cig/Tobacco2

    The important paragraph is this (my emphasis):

    E-cigarettes (and/or their components) are not prohibited imports under Customs law. However, they may be subject to control under the Therapeutic Goods Act 1989 if the packaging makes a claim about any form of therapeutic benefit.
    So make sure you don't have any packaging that says it's an aid to quitting smoking.

    Wouldn't matter whether you had it in carry-on or checked at this point.

    Either way it should be fine. Nothing to declare.

    put your liquid in your checked baggage, in your bag with shaving shampooing and general bathroom stuff and will be fine.
    Batteries, I generally bag each one individually unless I have a plastic carry case that holds them separately. You need to make sure that they cant touch anything that is likely to short them out.
    I travel to many countries every year and as long as I do the above I do not get any problems
    Quit date : 10/5/2011
