• The following information is taken from the current edition of the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) Technical Instructions for the Safe Transport of Dangerous Goods by Air.

    Please note that current UK aviation security regulations forbid the carriage of liquids (including aerosols and gels) in hand baggage through the passenger security point in containers larger than 100ml. Larger containers may be placed in hold baggage or purchased after the security point, provided they comply with the dangerous goods limits in the links below.

    Restrictions implemented by other countries in the interests of aviation security may further limit or forbid the carriage of some of the items listed in these pages. Additionally, airlines and security screening agencies have the right to refuse the carriage of certain items.

    Passengers must contact their airline in advance for clarification of the regulations, or when planning to travel with dangerous goods that require the airline’s approval when indicated in the tables below.

  • The term "lithium battery" refers to a family of batteries with different chemistries, comprising of many types of cathodes and electrolytes. They are separated into:

    • Lithium metal batteries  
      generally non-rechargeable batteries that have lithium metal or lithium compounds as an anode.
      Lithium metal batteries are generally used to power devices such as watches, calculators and cameras.  
       
    • Lithium-ion batteries (sometimes abbreviated Li-ion batteries) 
      a type of rechargeable battery commonly used in consumer electronics. Also included within lithium-ion batteries are lithium polymer batteries. Lithium-ion batteries are generally found in mobile telephones, laptop computers, etc.

    The watt-hour (Wh) rating is a measure by which lithium ion batteries are regulated. Since 2009 and 2011 respectively, manufacturers have been required to mark lithium ion batteries with the watt-hour rating.

    You can arrive at the number of watt-hours your battery provides if you know the battery's nominal voltage (V) and capacity in ampere-hours (Ah) using this calculation - Ah x V = Wh.

    This information is often marked on the battery.

    If only the milliampere hours (mAh) are marked on the battery, then divide that number by 1000 to get ampere-hours (Ah). For example, 4400 mAh / 1000 = 4.4 Ah.

    Non-spillable batteries are also known as wet filled with acid or alkali or gel-type batteries.

    Prior to travel, passengers must advise the airline of the type of batteries fitted to the mobility aid and how the device can be protected against inadvertent operation (e.g. certain actions being taken with the joystick, removing a key or turning a deactivation switch). Application of the brake is not sufficient; unless the motor is rendered inoperative, the motor can still be activated and overheat.

    At the airport, the airline must verify that the:

    • battery is securely attached to the mobility aid;
    • battery terminals are protected from short circuits (e.g. by being enclosed within a battery container); and
    • electrical circuits have been isolated.
