B. Notes on the handling of lithium batteries and implied dangerous goods

"Announcement on the Regulations for Carrying Lithium Batteries in Passenger Cargo Bags"


In order to enhance the air transportation safety of lithium batteries in passenger luggage, the Civil Aviation Administration and the Civil Aviation East China Regional Administration issued the "Notice on Strengthening the Safe Air Transportation of Lithium Batteries in Passenger Baggage", requiring all relevant units of civil aviation to further improve the lithium in passenger luggage. The safe transportation management of batteries shall be carried out in accordance with the following provisions of the ICAO “Technical Regulations for the Safe Transport of Dangerous Goods by Air” for carrying lithium batteries in passenger luggage:

Passengers or crew members who use lithium or lithium-ion batteries or batteries for personal use should be boarded as carry-on luggage, and the lithium content of lithium-metal batteries should not exceed 2 grams. The rated energy of lithium-ion batteries should not exceed 100Wh (watt hours). If it exceeds 100Wh but does not exceed 160Wh, it can be installed on the equipment in the hand luggage after approval by the airline. Lithium batteries over 160Wh are strictly prohibited. The backup battery of the portable electronic device must be individually protected against short circuits (insert the original retail packaging or otherwise insulate the electrodes, such as tape on exposed electrodes, or place each battery in a separate plastic bag or protect In the box), and can only be carried in hand luggage. The 100-160Wh spare lithium battery approved by the airline can only carry two and cannot be checked.

Lithium battery mobile power (charging treasure) equipped with a start switch during flight should ensure that the switch is off. Do not use mobile power to charge consumer electronics or use it as an external power source; do not turn on other features of the mobile power source. Passengers and crew members carrying lithium-ion battery-powered wheelchairs or other similar means of transport and portable medical electronic devices containing lithium metal or lithium-ion battery cells or batteries for medical use must comply with the Dangerous Goods Safety Aviation Transport and packaging requirements for the Transport Technical Instructions are carried and approved by the airline.

(1) Why do lithium batteries and charging treasures must be carried with you when passengers take the flight?

Because if the lithium battery and the charging treasure are not properly stored in a small environment, it is easy to become a fire source, and the cabin is wider than the cargo space. If an accident occurs, it is easy to be discovered in time to avoid serious consequences.

(2) Portable lithium battery

As a hand baggage, you can carry a personal portable electronic device such as a laptop, mobile phone, camera, watch, etc., with a lithium battery of no more than 100 watt hours, and a backup battery.

Lithium batteries in mobile phones, popular camcorders, SLR cameras, and most electronic devices such as laptops generally do not exceed the 100Wh limit.

(3) Lithium batteries that are restricted

With the approval of the airline, you can carry electronic equipment containing more than 100Wh but not more than 160Wh lithium battery. Each passenger may not carry more than two such spare batteries and cannot be checked.

Equipment that may contain more than 100Wh lithium batteries includes news media equipment, film crew equipment, performance props, medical equipment, electric toys, power tools, toolboxes, etc.

(4) Lithium batteries that are prohibited

It is forbidden to carry or consign large lithium batteries or electronic devices containing more than 160Wh.

Backup lithium battery protection measures

The backup battery must be individually protected against short circuits (insert in the original retail packaging or otherwise insulate the electrodes, such as tape on exposed electrodes, or place each battery in a separate plastic wrap or protective case)

(5) Method for judging the rated energy of lithium battery

If the lithium battery is not directly marked with the rated watt hour, it can be converted as follows:

1. If the nominal voltage (V) and nominal capacity (Ah) of the battery are known, the rated energy value can be calculated by the following formula: Wh=V*Ah The nominal voltage and nominal capacity are usually marked on the battery.

2. If there is only mAh on the battery, divide this value by 1,000 to get the ampere-hour (Ah). For example, a lithium battery has a nominal voltage of 3.7V and a nominal capacity of 760mAh.

Its rated energy is: 760mAh/1,000=0.76Ah 3.7V×0.76Ah=2.9Wh

Notice on Clarifying the Regulations for Passengers Carrying Small Lithium Battery Power Vehicles

In view of the fire hazard of the lithium battery used in the electric balance car, in order to ensure flight safety, passengers are prohibited from carrying or consigning the electric balance car powered by the lithium battery. The electric balance car is a mobile auxiliary tool that is powered by a lithium battery and can carry people, single or multiple wheels.

It is forbidden to bring dangerous goods to board. If you are carrying an item with an implied risk, please consult your airline or airport customer service.

C. Checked baggage

(1) Remember that documents, air tickets, cash, and valuables cannot be placed in checked baggage; the most commonly used lithium batteries such as laptops, mobile phones, and cameras cannot be checked in baggage, and can only be removed and carried in hand luggage;

(2) Checked baggage size: regular single piece of baggage requires three sides and no more than 158 cm;

(3) Number and weight limit of baggage: The free checked baggage allowance for economy class passengers is 1 piece, no more than 23 kg; 1 business class and first class class, no more than 32 kg. Some airlines that travel to the Americas or Africa can carry two pieces of economical baggage, each of which is no more than 23 kilograms, three in business and first class, each of which does not exceed 32 kilograms;

(4) Each airline shall have different rates of overweight, oversize and oversized baggage on international flights and calculation methods, and passengers shall apply according to the regulations of each airline;

(5) The airline shall not compensate for the normal wear and tear during the consignment (such as scraping, indentation or overfilled baggage or damage to fragile items that are not properly packaged. Each airline has its own clear rules on the baggage allowance. The above information is for reference only. Please pay attention to the tips on the ticket, or consult your travel service specialist and the corresponding airline.

D. Travel List

Traveling is the same as usual, and many things are essential. Now let me introduce you to the list of essential travels. Prepare you before you leave, just follow the list.

Postscript: Depending on the travel destination, the baggage may vary. You should consider the actual situation, such as beaches that require swimwear, mountain climbing and mountaineering equipment.

E、Dangerous goods

1. Air transportation of goods containing dangerous goods must comply with national and international regulations.

2. Consignments containing dangerous goods must be truthfully declared and properly identified as dangerous goods.

3. Substances and products that are classified as dangerous goods include flammable, pyrophoric, corrosive, toxic, explosive, radioactive, infectious and moisture-sensitive substances as well as compressed gases, oxidants, organic peroxides and other related substances.
