Don’t Pack Extra Batteries
In a safety alert yesterday, the FAA urged airlines to tell passengers not to pack lithium batteries in their checked luggage. Why? Because “they can ignite and fuel fires in baggage compartments.” This is a real danger, and if should be taken seriously.
Lithium batteries are used to power many personal electronics and household items—like phones, laptops and even toothbrushes—so it’s very possible you think to pack one for a trip. Fortunately, you can still pack these batteries in your carry-on.
