  • Lithium batteries of more than 160 Wh: not allowed in any luggage (e.g., in electric and hybrid bikes, hoverboards, airwheels, small segways, etc.).
  • Spare batteries with exposed terminals are not permitted in checked luggage. In cabin luggage, they must be protected from short circuits (terminals covered with sticky tape, and carried in individual plastic bags or in their original packaging). Spare batteries of less than 100 Wh must only be for personal use, and only two spare batteries of 100 to 160 Wh are allowed per person.
