Can you take a power bank on plane?

When it comes to traveling with electronic devices, many people wonder if they can bring a power bank on a plane. The short answer is yes, you can take a power bank on a plane, but there are some important rules and regulations to keep in mind.

Understanding Power Bank Specifications

Most airlines allow power banks, but they categorize them based on their lithium content or their rating in Watt hours (Wh). This information can usually be found on the power bank itself or in its manual.

The standard rule is: Power banks rated less than 100Wh are permissible in carry-on luggage. Those rated between 100Wh and 160Wh require airline approval, while power banks rated above 160Wh are typically not permitted on planes.

Calculate the Wh Rating

If you only find the milliampere-hour (mAh) capacity along with the voltage (V) and the Wh rating isn't directly provided, you can calculate it by multiplying the mAh rating by the voltage and then dividing by 1000. This converts mAh to Ah (Ampere-hour), and when multiplied by the voltage, gives the Wh rating. 

For instance, let's take our MChaos wearable power bank with an actual capacity of 9600mAh and a rated voltage of 3.7V. To calculate its rated output in Watt-hours (Wh), we use the formula: 3.7V * 9600mAh / 1000 = 35.52Wh. Based on this calculation, it falls within the acceptable range for air travel, making it suitable to bring on a plane.

Carry-On Only

Power banks are a no-go in checked luggage due to the risk of potential thermal runaway incidents in the cargo department. Always keep power banks with you in your carry-on luggage during flights.

Staying Informed

Travel regulations can change swiftly. It's advisable to keep checking the current rules and guidelines regarding power banks, especially if you are a frequent traveller.

Wrap up!

In conclusion, you can take a power bank on a plane in most cases, as long as it is within the safety limits set by the aviation industry and your specific airline's guidelines. It's a great way to ensure your devices stay charged while on-the-go and you stay connected, irrespective of where your journey takes you.
