Batteries pose a unique hazard during air transport and are capable of causing a fire if not transported correctly. We want to assist you to avoid carrying any batteries that are prohibited at law. Please read the information on this page and also the Safe Pack website for more information about batteries and hazardous materials.
Whether a battery can be carried or not depends on its type, configuration, the quantity and certain conditions:
- In equipment – Securely installed in the device and the device is protected against inadvertent activation – e.g. An On/Off switch that is suitably protected and cannot be accidentally turned on.
- Spare or loose batteries - Are those batteries not installed in the device, carried separately or items such as power banks/packs designed to power or back-up another device. Spare batteries must be in carry-on baggage only and must be protected against short circuit by, placing in its original retail packaging, placing each battery in a separate plastic bag or protective pouch or insulating terminals by taping over exposed terminals.
- All lithium batteries must be of a type that meets the requirements of the UN Manual of Tests and Criteria, Part III, subsection 38.3. Documentation verifying this may be required.
