e-cigs how to pack them??

Hi all

Hubby is trying to give up smoking and has bought e-cigarettes, but we are unsure wether to pack them in the hold or hand baggage??? They have a charging case, which holds about 4 "cigs".

We don't want to cause a security issue by packing them in hold baggage, but worried they may get confiscated if their not to be in hand baggage??

Anyone know??

I always pack electrical and essential items in my hand luggage. As these fulfill both catergories, that's where I'd put them.

I've never been stopped for electical items. But I was stopped last week for a large bar of soap !! Funnily enough many years ago I was stopped for a large round candle- must be something in the shadow they show on the screen.
