3 Tips For Traveling With Electronics


With a custom aluminum case, you will have peace of mind knowing that your valuable electronics will arrive at your destination safely.

Traveling with your valuable electronics can be a stressful experience. If your items don’t all fit in one carry on and you’re stuck checking a bag you may have to make some last minute decisions about what will be safe and what needs to be moved. With a custom aluminum case, you will have peace of mind knowing that your valuable electronics will arrive at your destination safely. Before you hit the open road, there are several aspects to consider.

Keep Electronics Separate

While it may be tempting to try to distribute the weight of your electronics between multiple bags, it’s often safer to keep everything in one place. Not only do you lower the risk of losing any items, but when traveling by air, it will make TSA checks easier. Most electronics must be taken out of their bag to be examined, keeping them all in one place will make it easier to quickly unpack when it’s your turn through the x-ray machines.

Pack Carefully

While the first step to packing carefully is covered by using a custom aluminum case there are additional precautions to add. Make sure that all of your electronics are entirely powered down and secured in place. If you have any electronics with complex pieces, you may want to disassemble them to prevent any breaks or accidents. Additionally, some batteries may need to be removed to follow airplane regulations. If you haven’t yet purchased a custom case for your electronics, now is the time, make sure to take a look at what kind of protection you need so you can find the right IP rating.    

Review The Rules And Restrictions

Depending on how you are traveling there are very different rules for what you can and cannot do with your electronics. Lithium-ion batteries, for instance, must be kept in carry on luggage when flying while Amtrack has no such regulations. Different airlines have different rules so make sure to read up on your particular flight’s regulations before you head to the airport.
