The Kids’ Carry-On by AWAY is a suitcase ideal for every kid's journey. l It is durable enough to stand up to anything and lightweight enough for them to pull themselves, thoughtfully designed, and made to last through childhood, or even more.
It has an electable battery which is compliant with all airline policies, TSA-approved, and safe to fly. R
Some Away Carry-Ons have a removable 37-watt lithium-ion battery located underneath the handle. The battery is allowed in the cabin and can be carried onto any flight.
We know that plans (and airline policies) are subject to change, which is why we designed the battery to be quickly removable from the start, making it compliant (and convenient) at any airport in the world. As more people traveled with our Carry-Ons and told us about their experiences, we learned that many of our customers wanted to be able to remove the battery even faster, so we developed a battery that could be instantly ejected.
If you have a Carry-On with our original battery module and would like to install an ejectable battery module in it, we have 3 free ways for you to make the switch. Learn more here.
Our current Carry-On has an ejectable battery—just open the port, press down on the battery, and release. It will pop right out.
If you have a Carry-On with our original design, the battery doesn’t eject but it can still be removed in seconds. Just unzip the interior lining and use the included TSA-approved screwdriver to open the port and slide the battery out. If you need any help or a new (free!) screwdriver, let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org
Want to get an ejectable battery installed in your Carry-On for free? We have three ways for you to make the switch, so you can instantly remove your battery anytime for any reason.
Yes! If you purchased a Carry-On with our original battery module, we have three free ways to switch out the module in the Carry-On you already own and love with a new ejectable one (and two options for non-US customers too). Click here to pick the one that works best for your travel schedule.
All the way. Every Carry-On is approved to be carried on to any flight (with the battery in place) or to be checked (with the battery removed) and complies with all regulations from individual airlines, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), Transportation Security Administration (TSA), International Air Transport Association (IATA), and Department of Transportation (DOT), and meets UN/DOT 38.3 requirements.
Since these policies are still new, everyone at the airlines (or in line at security) might not be as up-to-date as you. If an employee ever has a question about your bag (or the rules), you can find the policies of the major US airlines below.
"You can travel with these bags as a carry-on bag. If the bag needs to be checked or valeted you must remove the battery and carry it with you."
From American Airline's policy page as of February 1, 2018.
"Customers checking a smart bag with a removable lithium-ion battery must remove it and take it with them into the cabin. Customers carrying-on a smart bag containing a removable lithium-ion battery must remove it from the designed enclosure prior to boarding the aircraft. This is consistent with Delta's policy today requiring customers to place spare lithium-ion batteries in their carry-on luggage."
"Pack spare batteries in carry-on baggage."
From Delta Airline's official statement and from their policy page as of February 13, 2018.
"Effective July 9, lithium batteries that are installed in any checked or carry-on baggage must be removed by the customer. Once removed, these batteries can be transported on board."
From United Airline's policy page as of July 9, 2018.
