Whether you're on the short business trip, or personal vacation, some electronic devices are sure to carry with, like your phone, laptop, camera and other devices etc. You'll surely not want your devices to power off on the journey there. Right?

The rules regarding power banks on airplanes have changed over the years, but now we can usually bring our power banks along with us. Currently, you are required to bring your portable charger and power banks in your carry-on luggage.

What Power Banks Are Allowed to Be Carried On Airplane?

The following rules are according to the Civil Aviation Administration in China. These rules are standard for many airlines around the world:
1.Power bank must be carried for personal use.
2.Power bank must only be carried in hand luggage. It is not allowed to carry power banks in checked luggage.
3.If the rated power is less than 100Wh, power banks can be carried without approval; power banks with the power between 100Wh and 160Wh can be carried after approval of air carrier. However, each passenger is only allowed to carry no more than two power banks.
4.Power above 160Wh are not allowed to be carried or the power banks without identified rated power and with rated power unable to be worked out with the marked parameters. It’s heavily depend on the capacity in Wh (watt hours), and under 100Wh is OK to bring on board. If over 160Wh you have to declare it and it has to be packed in cargo under the Dangerous Goods guidelines.

Someone may feel confused about the calculation of the capacity. Here is the method to find Watt Hours:
Just take Milliamp Hours/1000 x Voltage = Watt Hours
(MAH)/1000 X (V) = (WH)

Normally the output voltage is 3.7V, so the allowed capacity would be 26800mAh. That means the capacity of power banks within 26800mAh would be applicable.
(MAH)/1000 X (V) = (WH)
26800MAH/1000 X3.7V=99.16Wh
