Travelling on planes is about to get a whole lot less convenient for photographers. Citing the risk of explosion and catastrophic fire, the United States government is advising airlines around the world to ban cameras, laptops, and other electronic devices from checked luggage. The US Federal Aviation Administration filed a paper with the United Nations International Civilian Aviation Organization urging airline companies to ban these devices from checked luggage because “ [if a] rechargeable lithium-ion battery overheats in close proximity to an aerosol spray can, it can cause an explosion capable of disabling an airliner's fire suppression system. The fire could then rage unchecked” according to the Chicago Tribune. The International Civilian Aviation Organization helps establish international aviation standards that must be further approved and ratified by member governments to have legal applicability on a per-nation basis. The United States Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) conducted tests with fully charged lithium ion batteries that were exposed to a heat source, causing a gradual overheating of the unit.
