- Laptop w/o battery US bound flight? 3 answers
I am traveling from the US to the UK and then to Portugal. Round trip. I have a laptop without a battery, so I am hesitant to bring it as carry-on in the plane because I had troubles already with a laptop not turning on through security.
Is there any problem with sending the laptop in the checked-in luggage? If they open my luggage and they find it, would that be a problem? Could they take it away?
