    I would suggest packing as much as possible in your checked luggage (with the exception of the batteries and/or the mods, if they have integrated batteries). Since you're only transiting BKK, it's unlikely that your checked luggage will get scanned during the transfer.

    You will definitely go through security again in BKK with your carry-on luggage so it's always advisable to keep the vape gear to a minimum.

    the 2 mods is (1 sealed new aegis solo) and the used mod (1 aegis legend used without box only mod)

    the battery with hard plastic case is possible to put on checked luggage ?

    but my transit flight will transfer plane Phil to BKK (Cebu Pacific airlines) then BKK to Qatar (maybe Phil. Airlines or Qatar airways)

    Planning to flight last week of january

    Absolutely not. Li-Ion batteries may only be placed in your carry-on luggage.
    Don't know these mods...do they have built-in batteries? If so, you must carry them on. I would suggest taking them out of their boxes if you anticipate any trouble when you arrive in Qatar.
    Presume you're arriving/departing from Suvarnabhumi (new) Airport...you will go through a security check while in transit but don't think your checked luggage will be scanned again (but don't know this for certain). If you're arriving into Don Muang (old) airport and leaving via Suvarnabhumi (new) Airport, you may have to collect your bags at Don Muang, clear customs (this would be the problem area with vape gear) and then do it all again when checking in at Suvarnabhumi (new) Airport.

    What it's for doesn't matter...the import of vape gear into Thailand has been banned since the end of 2014.

    If you stay in the transit area of the airport (i.e., don't clear TH Immigration & Customs), you'll probably be ok. Again, I recommend putting as much as possible in your checked luggage. If you want to vape while you're in the BKK Airport, I would suggest a pod/AIO system...and only do that in the bathrooms. There are no longer any smoking rooms in either of the 2 BKK airports AFAIK.

    Good luck!
