Taking Batteries on Planes.

If you are travelling on a plane anywhere in the world and want to carry a power bank with you, it must be under 100 Watt Hrs, to comply with safety regulations, and be clearly marked on the power bank.

Power Banks can only be carried in your carry on luggage.

As a general rule power banks around 28,000mah will just fall below the 100 wh rating and anything above will have to be cleared with the airline.
