Lithium Batteries


Basic aim of this information is to develop awareness of passengers about danger related to lithium batteries and portable electronic devices which use lithium batteries.


Lithium Batteries


Therefore, and for security and safety reasons, ICAO/IATA Provisions for Dangerous Goods Carried by Passengers or Crew define limitations which are applied in air transport:

  • Faulty and damaged batteries are forbidden for any air transport;
  • Passenger must carry spare batteries in his hand baggage, and they must be individually protected to prevent short circuits;
  • Objects used as primary energy sources, e.g. “Power Banks”, are considered spare batteries;
  • Portable electronic devices with lithium batteries installed must be protected from damage and accidental activation;
  • Lithium batteries limitations for portable devices and medical portable devices allowed to be carried on board of aircraft by passengers, are expressed in watt-hours (Wh) for lithium ion batteries, or in lithium content in grams (g) for lithium metal batteries.

Lithium Ion Batteries:

  • Watt-hour rating up to, but not more than 100 Wh do not require airline’s approval;
  • Watt-hour rating exceeding 100 Wh but not exceeding 160 Wh do require airline’s approval;
  • Watt-hour rating exceeding 160 Wh is forbidden for passenger air transport.

Lithium Metal Batteries:

  • Maximally 2 g of equivalent lithium content do not require airline’s approval;
  • Over 2 g, but not more than 8 g of equivalent lithium content do require airline’s approval;
  • Over 8 g of equivalent lithium content is forbidden for passenger air transport.


Air carriers, as well as some states, reserve the right to deny transport of certain dangerous goods, in the interest of security and safety of air traffic.

For any further information, please contact your air carrier, at least one day before the date of travel.

Passenger Warning

In order to protect air traffic passengers, EU introduces a limit concerning amount of liquids allowed to be carried in hand baggage, in the year 2006. These protective measures are applied at all EU, Norway, Iceland and Switzerland airports, and are also mandatory at the Republic of Croatia airports.
The liquids include: beverages, oils, perfumes, lotions, gels, mixtures of liquid and solid contents, containers under pressure such as shaving foams, gels, deodorants, perfumes and other items of similar content.

Only liquids in individual packages of up to 100 ml or 100 g volume, put in transparent, resealable plastic bag, may be carried inside hand baggage. Maximal bag volume is 1 litre. Bag must be completely closed (see picture).

Passengers are still allowed to:

  • Carry above mentioned liquids if they are packed in hold baggage and if they are not dangerous goods. New regulations apply to hand baggage, only;
  • Carry inside hand baggage liquids used during flight for medical purposes, or for special nutritional needs, including baby food. At request of person in charge, passenger shall prove the need to use them.
  • If passenger flies from any EU airport to Republic of Croatia destinations, on direct flight or with transit at some other EU airport, he can carry on board liquids (drinks, perfumes …) bought in shops which are behind Boarding Pass Control and / or Security Check. Liquids purchased in that manner must be put in transparent plastic bag (STEB). In the year 2008, EK 820/2008 Regulation came into force, according to which air traffic passengers, flying from Croatia and with transit at some EU and Switzerland airport, are again allowed to carry liquids into aircrafts, provided that they are bought in airport Duty Free Shops, after Security Check and Boarding Pass Control. This Regulation refers to Dubrovnik, Split, Zadar, Rijeka, Pula and Zagreb airports. Stated permission is valid for goods purchased within 36 hours of transfer and packed in transparent plastic bag (STEB). Bag must be sealed, so that any attempt to open it and affect its content must be visible.

Passenger and Hand Baggage Security Check

At passenger and hand baggage security check, the passenger is required to:

  • Report all liquids;
  • Separately present laptops and other electronic devices (mp3 players, mobile phones etc.);
  • Take off coat and / or jacket that will be checked as a separate piece of hand baggage.
