Travelling Abroad Soon? Make Sure Your Camera is Charged!


If you are planning to travel to the US or UK anytime soon, make sure your electronic devices are completely charged, or you may have to say goodbye to them.

In a statement released by British Airways, a representative said,

“Customers may be asked to turn on any electronic or battery powered devices such as telephones, tablets, e-books and laptops in front of security teams and/or demonstrate the item’s functionality.

If, when asked to do so, you are unable to demonstrate that your device has power, you will not be allowed to fly on your planned service.”

As far as security measures go, this seems a bit too severe. But then again, shouldn’t you power up your devices before you go on a trip? Think of all the clouds that will miss being photographed because of your cameraphone’s battery dying!
