Airport Security (TSA) & Flight Regulations

We have done our due diligence to make sure the Bluesmart suitcase complies with travel industry standards. Bluesmart suitcases use a 37 watt Lithium-ion battery, which is well within the FAA regulations on batteries. The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) follows the same rules under the FAA. Our travelers have flown throughout the world with our luggage and have not experienced issues with security.

As body scans, medal detectors and random bag checks are part of a standard security practice in airports, you may be asked to open your suitcase. All you need to do is open it via the Bluesmart app or let TSA know they hold a master key and point out the logo on the TSA approved smart-lock.

We are always working to build awareness and industry alliances to help educate security personnel about our product. If further questioned about the built-in battery, there should be a battery sticker at the bottom of your suitcase that shows all the specs.

 

Flight Regulations

The Bluesmart Carry-On uses a 37 Watt-hour Lithium-ion battery (10,400 mAh and 3.8V), which is well below the FAA threshold of 100 Watt-hours. Furthermore, the battery in the Bluesmart suitcase is not removable and considered "in equipment." This means that there is no problem with either carrying on or checking in. The regulations most relevant to Bluesmart can be found here.
