Travel safety tips: How to pack batteries

When you embark on your Japan vacation via airplane, it's important to be aware of the items that you're prohibited from bringing with you, as well as those that must be transported following specific safety guidelines. Some of the belongings you'll need to be wary of packing in your suitcase are batteries.

"The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has implemented safety guidelines for batteries being transported on airplanes designed to prevent fire-related incidents from occurring," states the Transport Security Administration (TSA) blog. "The TSA works closely with the FAA on potential aviation safety and security issues, and TSA security officers are trained to identify potential safety and security battery-related threats in carry-on and checked bags."

While you can visit the TSA blog to see a list of batteries that are and are not permitted, in this post we'll examine safety tips for packing batteries that are allowed:

  • Don't bring damaged batteries with you
  • Keep batteries in your carry-on baggage so they are easy to access if necessary
  • Make sure all battery-powered devices are turned off
  • Place each battery in its own separate plastic bag
