Reminder for recalled lithium batteries and devices containing such batteries are forbidden for transport by air.
Recently it is reported that several consumer electronics are recalled by their manufacturer due to safety reasons of lithium batteries. The recalled electronic devices also include the devices from different major brands. Unsafe lithium batteries could cause a dangerous evolution of heat which may eventually causing fire in the aircraft. According to IATA Dangerous Goods Regulations, lithium cells and batteries identified by the manufacturer as being defective for safety reasons are forbidden for transport.
