Can I put my Chipolo tracker in my luggage?

Expected read time: 1 min

The short answer is – yes.

The batteries in all Chipolo trackers are small enough to comply with regulations for both carry-on and checked luggage.

While electronic devices like phones, earbuds, laptops, and other electronic devices must be part of your carry-on luggage, the same doesn’t apply to smaller devices like your electronic toothbrush or a luggage tracker. When small enough, those can also be included in your checked luggage.

What batteries can I put in my luggage?

There are many different types of batteries and the same rules do not apply for carry-on luggage and checked luggage, so here’s a short breakdown of what batteries you can pack where.

Devices with batteries allowed in carry-on luggage

Bluetooth trackers are allowed in your carry-on luggage since the battery inside is part of the device and small enough to comply with the regulations.

You should also put all your electronic devices, such as smartphones, tablets, e-readers, headphones, cameras, power banks, and laptops in your carry-on luggage.

If you are carrying extra batteries for your devices that aren’t inside an electronic device, stick with AA and AAA batteries and coin batteries.

Anything bigger than that, contact the airline and check if any restrictions apply.

Devices with batteries allowed in checked luggage

You can pack smaller electronic devices with lithium batteries here too if the battery is part of the device.

Luggage trackers with lithium batteries and electronic toothbrushes will not be a problem, but when you pack personal electronic devices, such as smartphones, tablets, e-readers, laptops in your checked luggage, you will have to turn them off completely.

Even so, some airlines only allow such electronic devices in your carry-on luggage, so double-check with your airline before packing them.

Still not sure what devices you can pack?
