Frequently Asked Questions About Power Banks for Travel

Which Power Banks Are Allowed on Planes?

According to the International Air Transport Association (IATA) guidelines, power banks with a capacity of up to 100 watt-hours (Wh) can be carried in hand luggage without approval. This usually corresponds to about 27000mAh at a voltage of 3.7V. Power banks with a capacity between 100 Wh and 160 Wh require airline approval, while power banks over 160 Wh are generally prohibited.

Which Power Bank for Long Trips?

For long trips, we recommend power banks with a high capacity, at least 20000mAh. The XtremeMac Magnetic Power Bank 20K mAh is ideal as it offers fast charging capabilities and multiple USB ports to charge multiple devices simultaneously. With its high capacity, you can ensure your devices are always ready throughout your trip.

Why Can't You Put a Power Bank in Checked Luggage?

Power banks cannot be transported in checked luggage because they are classified as hazardous materials. In carry-on luggage, they can be quickly accessed and extinguished in the event of a defect or overheating. This safety precaution is for the protection of all passengers on board.

How Long Does a 20000mAh Power Bank Last?

The duration of a 20000mAh power bank depends on the capacity and power consumption of the devices being charged. On average, such a power bank can fully charge a smartphone with a 3000mAh battery about six times. For tablets or other devices with higher power requirements, the number of charge cycles decreases accordingly.

Are Power Banks Checked at the Airport?

Yes, power banks are checked at the airport. Security checks ensure that the power banks comply with the regulations, especially regarding capacity. Make sure your power bank has the required markings to avoid delays or issues.

What Happens if You Forget a Power Bank in Your Checked Luggage?

If you accidentally have a power bank in your checked luggage, it can lead to your luggage being removed from the plane. Airport security may search your luggage to remove the power bank, which can cause delays and potential additional costs. Therefore, it's advisable always to check that your power bank is in your carry-on luggage.

What is the Advantage of MagSafe Power Banks?

MagSafe power banks have the great advantage of not requiring a cable to charge your iPhone. Thanks to MagSafe technology, the power banks magnetically attach to your device, allowing for easy and quick charging without needing to search for a cable. This makes them highly portable and ideal for travel, as you can conveniently charge your device while it's in your pocket.
