I'm from Turkey and as you may know it, USA and UK banned passengers from Turkey to use a laptop in the flights. Airlines say laptops can be given to them at boarding time and they will be returned after the flight. I don't want that. Am I entitled to carry my laptop in my checked luggage rather than handing it to the flight crew?
There is no problem with putting electronics in your checked luggage. However:
- There are typically limits on Lithium Batteries in checked baggage (e.g., a limit of 100 Wh capacity is common and the battery will need to stay attached to the device). Look this up on the website of your airline!
- There is very limited (practical) liability by the airline in case your laptop breaks.
- Your bag will be more likely to be subject to manual inspection if it has large quantities of electronics in them.
