Air travel and Lithium Ion battery packs
Posted by: space-time
Date: February 04, 2015 03:48PM
I remember that a while ago they had some restrictions about the size of the Lithium Ion battery packs you can take in a carry-on. Do they still have such restrictions? if you have one of these listed below, can you take it in the carry on, or do you have to put it in the checked bag? Thanks

Anker® 2nd Gen Astro E3 Ultra Compact 10000mAh Portable Charger External Battery Power Bank with PowerIQ™ Technology for iPhone, iPad, Samsung and More (Black)

[www.amazon.com]

EDIT: found some info here, how do I know if that 10000 mAh has more or less than 8 grams of lithium?

I would put it in your carry on bag and not worry about it. I've carried an Air, iPad, iPhone, a couple DSLR batteries, and a 20800mAh battery pack recently.

I don't think you can have lithium batteries in your checked luggage.

USPS won't accept Lithium batteries for air transport because airlines won't carry because of fear of exploding. (They ask in the laundry list). Here is the discussion of the USPS: [about.usps.com]

Both.

Exactly this....

As long as it's in your carry on and for personal device ( as in, not your lawn mower ) it shouldn't raise eyebrows.
I carry quite a few spare batteries and I've had DSLR lenses inspected, not the batteries.

The only red flag I can imagine is a bunch of Lithium Ion battery packs and no devices to plug in to them.

Billions of carried-on laptops and smartphones can't be wrong.



It is what it is.

I was referring to a stand alone battery pack.
