New rules issued by the US government on Wednesday to prohibit airlines from lithium-ion batteries and carriers as a burden on airplanes.
The new Department of Transport, which comes next year to the next Congress, has led the new agency to adopt new regulations. No revisions will be applied to passengers or crew when they bring their aircraft electronics.
"This rule will reinforce passenger safety by positioning the special challenge of lithium batteries," said US Secretary Elaine L. Chao.
A year later, the use of lithium-ion batteries binds to fires and smashed the product's coffin, including Samsung's now-abated device, and Boeing 787 .
However, the regulation is expected to have little immediate effect. Federal Aviation AdministrationAbout 2016 batteries, airlines will analyze the risks of transporting lithium batteries as a charge, including "the risk of a casino for catastrophe". Alerts covered batteries that were transported as components and not within such devices, such as laptops, tablets, phones or tablets.
The Pipeline and the Hazardous Materials Safety Department of the Department of Transportation, from the new regulations, has stated that three aircraft accidents, which were linked to heavy-duty lithium-ion batteries, were being transported by fire.
The new regulations allow lithium ion cells and batteries to be fitted with a single charging airplanes, if the charge situation does not exceed 30 percent when packaged or in a device is exceeded. The agency also said that it would use two lithium-ion batteries for the use of medical devices for passenger airplanes, when there are more than 30 percent, when the battery's destination is not a daily cargo service.
