Any holidaymaker could be asked on the spot to prove their device's function, usually by turning the device on. Experts from International Citizens Insurance say this can be "surprising" to passengers who have not read up on airline rules and regulations. They say: "If you cannot turn on your devices when requested by security personnel, they can take it from you, placing your holiday snaps in jeopardy."

. British Airways urges passengers not to let their devices run down. On its website, the airline explains: "You can generally take electric and electronic items in your hand or checked baggage, but need to follow specific safety instructions. "Airport security staff may ask you to turn on electronic or battery-powered devices, such as phones, tablets, e-books and laptops, to demonstrate their function. If you're not able to do this, you will not be able to take your device with you. "Please ensure that any items in your hand baggage are fully charged and switched on before you arrive at the airport. If your device is not charged, please place it in your checked baggage. If you are connecting, make sure that you do not deplete power in your devices during the first part of your journey as charging points at airports might be very limited and you may need an adapter." British Airways provides plug and USB sockets on aircraft to allow passengers to charge devices while in transit. If you cannot switch on an electrical device when requested, the item could be seen as a security risk.
