TSA will no longer allow Cellphones and computers with dead batteries on flights to the US from overseasIf your cellphone is out of power the next time you fly to the United States from overseas, you might have to leave it behind.The Transportation Security Administration announced Sunday that on certain overseas flights to the United States, it will not permit “powerless devices” — cellphones and computers that cannot be turned on. Airport security officers may ask passengers to power-on devices during security screening, which could mean slower security lines for travelers. Passengers could also be taken out of line for questioning, TSA said.TSA already sometimes asks travelers to turn on laptops, presumably to determine if they are real rather than filled with explosives.It is unclear how TSA plans to deal with passengers without chargers whose devices are dead. The announcement doesn’t say what will happen to a phone that can’t be turned on, or how the owner will retrieve it if confiscated by airport security.

Dim bulbs do have a natural aversion to dead batteries.
