USA: An e-cigarette battery degassing at Boston Airport.

Through a statement, the US National Agency for Transport Safety (TSA) wished to make a reminder concerning the transportation of batteries in aircraft. While it is normally mandatory to carry the batteries used for electronic cigarettes in hand luggage, an incident occurred a few days ago at Boston Airport.


A DEGAZED ACCU IN A SUITCASE AT BOSTON AIRPORT


A few days ago at Logan International Airport in Boston, a lithium battery used to charge an e-cigarette began degassing into a suitcase. The visible smoke caused a temporary evacuation of the checked baggage control room.

Airport employees noticed the smoke only a few minutes before loading the suitcase onto the plane. The TSA posted a video of the bag on Twitter, the baggage owner was a man traveling to Kansas City.

Fortunately, despite the smoke, the suitcase was deemed safe after a check by the Massport firefighters. No other part of the airport was affected by this temporary evacuation.

Even if a lithium battery is packaged in carry-on luggage, it can still cause problems. However, having it in the cab facilitates the detection of a possible degassing before it causes serious damage.
