Portable Electronic Devices containing Batteries,
184.108.40.206.1 Portable electronic devices (such as watches, calculating machines, cameras, cellular phones, lap-top computers, camcorders, etc.) containing batteries when carried by passengers or crew for personal use, which should be carried in carry-on baggage. Spare batteries must be individually protected to prevent short circuits by placement in the original retail packaging or by otherwise insulating terminals, e.g. by taping over exposed terminals or placing each battery in a separate
plastic bag or protective pouch, and carried in carry-on baggage only. In a separate plastic bag or protective pouch, and carried in carry-on baggage only. In addition, lithium batteries are subject to the following conditions:
(a) . each installed or spare battery must not exceed:
1. for lithium metal or lithium alloy batteries, a lithium content of not more than 2 g; or
2. for lithium ion batteries, a watt-hour rating of not more than 100 Wh.
(b) batteries and cells must be of a type that meets the requirements of the UN
Manual of Tests and Criteria, Part III, subsection 38.3;
(c) if devices are carried in checked baggage the passenger/crew member must take
measures to prevent unintentional activation.
There is also provision, with the approval of the airline, for larger lithium ion batteries with a watt-hour rating in excess of 100 Wh, but not more than 160 Wh in equipment and no more than two spare lithium ion batteries as set out in subparagraph 220.127.116.11 as follows:IATA Lithium Battery Guidance Document – 2013 IDFS/Cargo Page 13 04/10/2012
Lithium ion batteries exceeding a watt-hour rating of 100Wh but not exceeding
18.104.22.168 Lithium ion batteries exceeding a watt-hour rating of 100 Wh but not exceeding 160 Wh may be carried as spare batteries in carry-on baggage, or in equipment in either checked or carry-on baggage. Batteries must be of a type that meets the requirements of the UN Manual of Tests and Criteria, Part III, subsection 38.3. No more than two individually protected spare batteries per person may be carried.
Although the text provided above does not impose a limit on the number of lithium metal and lithium ion batteries that fall under the 2 g or 100 Wh limitation (See 22.214.171.124) being carried as spares within a passenger’s carry-on baggage it must be emphasized that the number of spares must be “reasonable” in the context of the equipment used by the passenger and his or her itinerary. Furthermore, these must
be intended to power portable electronic devices (including, but not limited to, cameras and professional film equipment, laptop computers, MP3 players, cell phones, Personal Digital Assistants (PDA’s), pocket calculators etc).
Batteries which are carried for the purpose of resale or beyond personal needs are clearly not covered.
The regulations imposed on these commodities by the United States competent authorities (Department of Transportation and FAA) match the ICAO / IATA regulations addressed in this document.
Lithium-ion battery powered wheelchairs or other similar mobility aids for use by passengers whose mobility is restricted by either a disability, their health or age, or a temporary mobility problem (e.g. broken leg), are permitted in air transport but subject to the following conditions:
(a) the batteries must be of a type which meets the requirements of each test in the UN Manual of Tests and Criteria, Part III, subsection 38.3;
(1) battery terminals are protected from short circuits, e.g. by being enclosed within a battery container,
(2) the battery must be securely attached to the wheelchair or mobility aid; and
(3) electrical circuits have been inhibited.
(c) the mobility aids must be carried in a manner such that they are protected from being damaged by the movement of baggage, mail, or other cargo;
(d) where a battery powered or other similar mobility aid is specifically designed to allow its battery(ies) to be removed by the user (e.g. collapsible)
(1) the battery(ies) must be removed. The wheelchair / mobility aid may then be carried as checked baggage without restriction;
(2) the battery(ies) must be protected from short circuit by insulating the terminals (e.g. by taping over exposed terminals)
(3) the removed battery(ies) must be protected from damage (e.g.) by placing each battery in a protective pouch. The battery(ies) must be carried in the passenger cabin;
(4) removal of the battery from the device must be performed by following the instructions of the manufacturer or device owner;
(5) the battery must not exceed 300 Wh;;
(6) a maximum of one spare battery not exceeding 300 Wh or two spares each not exceeding 160 Wh may be carried; and (e) the pilot-in-command must be informed of the location of the mobility aid
with an installed battery or the location of the lithium battery when removed
and carried in the cabin. (f) It is recommended that passengers make advance arrangements with
: most scooters have a key which can be switched to the off position, removed and given to the
passenger for safe keeping. However, most power chairs are switched on and off with a push-button
which could be reactivated in flight by the inadvertent movement of baggage or cargo. Accordingly,
further steps are required to inhibit the circuits of such devices, for example separating the power
supply between the batteries and the control mechanism by disconnecting cable plugs or connectors,
or inserting an inhibiting plug. Any exposed electrical terminals must be insulated to prevent short
circuit. Batteries should not be routinely disconnected or removed, since this is often very difficult to
do, and if not done properly can increase the risk of a fire.
To check that electrical circuits have been inhibited, prior to loading place the device into drive mode (i.e. not freewheel mode), try to power up the device be pressing the on/off switch and see if use of the joystick results in the mobility aid moving. A check should also be made that batteries are securely attached to the mobility aid and battery terminals are protected from short circuit. If it is evident that an electric mobility aid has not been made safe, it must not be loaded.
NOTE: Battery –powered wheelchairs or other mobility devices with spillable batteries will not
be accepted for carriage on B&H Airlines flights.
