PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! If you take your phone or any other electronic device on holiday, you could end up having it taken off you at the airport if you fail to comply with a simple rule. People taking their devices with them in their hand luggage will need to be able to prove your device's "function", this means that you will usually need to switch it on when requested to do so. And, if you cannot do that, then airport staff have the power to take the device off of you. So, passengers will need to make sure that all electronic devices they take on holiday are fully charged, or risk losing them for good. If your phone or other device does not have charge - and is therefore unable to be turned on - then you will not be permitted to take it on to the aircraft in your carry-on luggage. This would usually mean that you will be forced to leave it at the airport, but does not guarantee that you will get the device back.

Experts from International Citizens Insurance say this can be "surprising" to passengers who have not read up on airline rules and regulations, the LiverpoolEcho reports. The experts explain: "If you cannot turn on your devices when requested by security personnel, they can take it from you, placing your holiday snaps in jeopardy." This warning is also in place on the Gov.uk website, so Brits travelling abroad have no excuse to not abide by the rules. The warning reads: "Make sure your electronic devices are charged before you travel. If your device does not switch on when requested, you will not be allowed to take it onto the aircraft." Though not all passengers are stopped and asked to switch on their devices, random spot checks may be carried out at some airport security points. This is why holidaymakers must ensure their devices have at least enough power to turn on should they be asked to do so.

. On its website, the British flag-bearing airline explained: "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. The US was the first nation to implement this security check, with the UK following quickly behind. In 2014, American officials stated there was a “credible terrorist threat” which prompted the rule. Though nothing was confirmed, there was speculation over explosives being hidden within electronic devices. In a post on its website at the time of the rule change, the US Transportation Security Administration (TSA) said: "During the security examination, officers may also ask that owners power up some devices, including cell phones. "Powerless devices will not be permitted on board the aircraft. The traveller may also undergo additional screening.” Read more: People left confused by unusual furry animal spotted in UK park Seagull caught on CCTV stealing from shop twice is 'pushing his luck' Should the UK move to a four-day working week?
