- The lithium content of a lithium metal or lithium alloy battery will not exceed 2 grams.

- The watt-hour rating of a lithium ion battery will not exceed 100Wh (Watt-hour is calculated by multiplying the nominal voltage by the rated capacity expressed in ampere-hours).

- Subject to approval of the airline company, the watt-hour rating may be greater than 100Wh but not exceed 160Wh, while the number of spare lithium batteries to be carried will not exceed 2 pieces.

- Any lithium battery exceeding 160Wh must not be carried.
