Blockbuster!carry battery: 3 basic rules

Regulations on carrying ordinary battery and lithium battery on airplanes

When flying, we often encounter various restrictions on luggage and items. Among them, the regulations on carrying battery need to be paid attention to. Because battery not only affect the electronic equipment on the plane, they may also pose a threat to the safety of passengers. In order to ensure the safety and smoothness of the flight, this article will detail the regulations for carrying ordinary batteries and lithium batteries on the aircraft.

The engineer presented a comprehensive overview of spacecraft power supply system during the pre-launch briefing, emphasizing the crucial role of batteries carried on board the aircraft.

Ordinary battery

Ordinary batteries refer to dry batteries, button batteries, etc. that are common in daily life. These batteries can be carried on airplanes, but you need to pay attention to the following points:

Carrying quantity: Ordinary batteries can carry a certain amount, but not too much. It is recommended to carry appropriate items based on your personal itinerary and the number of electronic devices you need to carry.

How to carry it: Ordinary batteries cannot be checked in and can only be carried with you or placed in hand luggage. This is to prevent the battery from being squeezed or bumped during transportation, causing accidents.

Rated energy limit: Airlines also have certain limits on the rated energy of ordinary batteries. The regulations of most airlines are that each passenger can only bring a maximum of two batteries with a rated energy of no more than 100Wh. If the rated energy exceeds 100Wh, it needs to be approved by the airline before it can be carried.

Lithium battery

With the popularity of smartphones, lithium batteries have become an indispensable part of our daily lives. The overview of aircraft transmission and distribution system provides essential insights into how power generated from batteries is carried and distributed throughout the aircraft, ensuring efficient and reliable operation during flight.When taking a plane, the regulations for carrying lithium batteries are as follows:

Rated energy limit: Lithium batteries with a rated energy exceeding 160Wh are strictly prohibited. However, lithium batteries can be carried on board as carry-on baggage if their rated energy does not exceed 100Wh. It should be noted that each passenger can only bring a maximum of two lithium batteries with a rated energy of no more than 100Wh. If the rated energy exceeds 100Wh, but does not exceed 160Wh, it can be installed on the device in checked baggage or carry-on baggage with the approval of the airline.

Power bank: A power bank is a portable electronic device, but it is considered a backup lithium battery and is subject to the same energy rating limits as lithium batteries. Therefore, it is strictly prohibited to carry power banks with rated energy exceeding 160Wh. However, power banks with a rated energy of no more than 100Wh can be carried on board as carry-on baggage.

Note: In order to ensure the safe transportation of lithium batteries and power banks, passengers need to abide by the following regulations: (1) They cannot be discarded on the plane; (2) They cannot be checked in and can only be carried with them or placed in hand luggage; (3) It cannot be placed next to flammable items in hand luggage to prevent fires caused by high temperatures; (4) If the rated energy of lithium batteries or power banks exceeds 100Wh, they must be approved by the airline before they can be carried.The basic requirements for aircraft power supply systems must be carefully adhered to ensure seamless integration of batteries onto the aircraft.

Portable electronic devices

In addition to ordinary batteries and lithium batteries, passengers may also carry some other types of electronic devices on board the aircraft, such as cameras, mobile phones, laptops, camcorders, etc. These portable electronic devices can be carried on board as carry-on baggage, but please note the following:

Quantity limit: Each passenger can only bring a maximum of two portable electronic devices. If you carry more than two, you need approval from the airline.

Comply with specifications: Portable electronic devices carried by passengers cannot be too large or heavy and must comply with the airline’s hand luggage specifications.

Charging equipment: Portable electronic devices carried by passengers must be powered off and cannot contain any liquid or flammable substances. If charging is required, you can use charging equipment that meets regulations.

Ordinary batteries, lithium batteries and portable electronic devices are allowed on board the aircraft, but they need to comply with the relevant regulations of the airline. Passengers need to pay attention to the rated energy limits and other requirements of different types of batteries to ensure safe transportation and smooth travel.
