How to Pack Electronics For Air Travel

The holidays are proving to be the perfect opportunity to use electronic devices far from home. But last year, the U.S. government banned the use of lithium-ion batteries in checked luggage. So how should you pack your laptop?

This is not just a matter of TSA compliance; This is a convenient question. If you plan to take a bunch of large electronics with you on your next vacation, you'll need to be able to pack them in smart backpack or carry-on luggage. Otherwise, your flight will be even more annoying.

Lithium ion battery is a relatively stable power supply. However, if you try to puncture or overheat a lithium-ion battery, it will explode. The U.S. Department of Transportation knows this poses a safety risk to aircraft and has banned the use of lithium-ion batteries in cargo areas on all passenger flights.

This is not just a precaution against bombs and deliberate lithium-ion fires. Remember when Samsung phones exploded in people's pockets? Yes, it turns out that malfunctioning or damaged lithium-ion batteries can accidentally ignite. A dark, cluttered cargo area on an airplane may be the last place you'll catch a fire.

What does this mean for you? Well, you'll have to keep all your Lithium-ion electronics in your carry on backpack (or pocket).For a phone or tablet, it's not a big deal. However, if you try to carry a laptop, Bluetooth speaker, portable battery or other large lithium-ion electronic devices, it may be a big inconvenience.

Usually, you can carry any number of lithium-ion batteries with you. Some airlines have their own limitations, but if you carry only a small number of devices, you may not have to worry too much.
