US bans shipments of Li-Ion batteries with passengers


The US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and the Department of Transportation (DoT) has banned the transport of lithium ion cells and batteries in the cargo bellyhold of passenger aircraft. The government also introduced a 30 per cent charge limit on lithium ion batteries shipped as air cargo that have a non-negligible chance of exploding.
The new rule change was mandated by the UN's International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) for all member countries in 2016, and the updated regulations serve to codify that directive into US aviation rules, New York's Gizmodo Media reported.
But the new rule doesn't affect passenger's ability to carry lithium ion devices on flights since they are one of the most common battery types used in consumer electronics.
