What are the rules for transporting replacement batteries?

A spare battery may only be carried in hand baggage if it contains no more than 2 g lithium (for lithium metal batteries) and if lithium-ion batteries have a capacity of no more than 100 watt/hour. No additional request is required.

Replacement batteries must be individually protected and either be in the manufacturer's original packaging or have their terminals insulated to prevent short circuits.

If your batteries do not meet the above requirements, prior authorization is required. To confirm, please fill out this web form.
