As many of you already know, over the past years there has never been a problem in traveling with a Batec. However, now due to the proliferation of large lithium batteries in all sorts of devices (drones, hoverboards, e-bikes, scooters, wheelchairs, etc.) here at Batec Mobility we believe that airlines are becoming stricter and stricter.
According to current IATA regulations, no batteries over 300Wh may be transported on commercial flights. The current batteries used by the Batec handbikes fall into this category, as they range from 324Wh to 396Wh depending on the model.
Here at Batec Mobility we are well aware of the problems this part of the regulations may cause our current and future users, including Batec Mobility employees, as we also use our handbikes. This is why we are workingon a new optional battery fully adapted to current airline regulations. We expect the solution to be ready in the later part of 2016.
