Powerbank: Handgepäck oder Koffer? – Das gilt

Wenn Du mit dem Flugzeug reist und eine Powerbank mitnehmen möchtest, gibt es klare Richtlinien, die Du beachten solltest. Powerbanks haben meist einen Lithium-Ionen-Akku und stellen dadurch ein potentielles Brandrisiko dar.

Are you allowed to travel with a powerbank in your suitcase?

You are not allowed to carry your powerbank in your checked baggage. Powerbanks must always be transported in hand baggage!

If you have a powerbank in your checked baggage, your suitcase may be opened at the security check and the powerbank removed. This is because a powerbank is difficult to check in a suitcase.

Is a powerbank allowed in hand baggage?

You are allowed to carry a powerbank in your hand luggage when traveling. However, there are also certain restrictions regarding capacity. The international aviation authority IATA allows power banks up to 100 watt hours (Wh). This usually corresponds to power banks with a capacity of around 27,000 mAh.

If your power bank exceeds this capacity, you should not carry it on the plane. You may have to leave it behind at the airport when you go through security.

Differences between airlines regarding power banks

The regulations may vary depending on the airline. Most airlines accept power banks up to 100 Wh without further ado. With a special permit, power banks up to 160 watt hours are often also permitted.

Good to know: Some airlines allow powerbanks up to 160 Wh without additional approval. Check the regulations with the airline in good time before departure. However, you must still observe the airlines' individual regulations. We recommend not exceeding the 100 watt hours specified by the IATA, especially for international flights.

Battery power bank at the security checkpoint - what you should bear in mind

At the security check, you must remove your powerbank separately from your hand luggage and present it for inspection. Make sure that the power bank has no visible damage, as damaged devices may be excluded from carriage.

It should also be clear how much capacity the power bank has so that it can be checked. With most power banks, however, this is easy to read.

How many Powerbanks you are allowed to take in your hand baggage

You may carry a maximum of two power banks in your hand baggage. Each powerbank may not have more than 100 Wh. If you want to carry more than two power banks or devices with a higher capacity, you must apply for and obtain approval from the airline in advance.
