I've read that there are some new regulations for electronic devices at UK airports. If the devices are in your hand baggage, they must be fully charged and you have to demonstrate, that they are working, or something like that.
Now what if I take my desktop computer components - Motherboard, CPU, GPU, RAM, PSU, Hard Drive (no case). I plan to wrap them with a lot of plastic bubble foil.
Would they want me to re-assemble the components and check if they are working? And would such baggage be a cause of some security freak out?
I'm flying from Istanbul to Edinburgh with Turkish Airlines.
I can't afford to waste time giving explanations to police all day for nothing on either the Turkish or British side.
Here's an article I found (http://www.deadlinenews.co.uk/2011/03/18/bomb-scare-at-edinburgh-airport/)
What do you think?
