Devices powered by lithium batteries

lithiumbatteriesPortable Electronic Devices (PEDs) containing lithium batteries carried by passengers should preferably be carried in the passenger cabin, on the person or in the hand baggage. This would enable the crew to react expeditiously in case an incident involving such PED occurs. Specific rules must be checked with your airlines.

PEDs placed in hold baggage have to be completely switched off and effectively protected from accidental activation. To ensure the device is never powered on during its transport, any applications, alarms or pre-set configurations that may activate the device have to be disabled or deactivated.

PEDs placed in hold baggage have to be protected from damage by applying suitable packaging or casing or by being placed in a rigid bag protected by adequate cushioning (e.g. clothing).

Attention: hoverboards (balance boards) are generally not allowed on board! 

Always check your airline's information on dangerous goods.
