Android TV Box - Can I take on Plane in Hand-baggage ?

Recommended Posts

TV-Boxes are quite popular these days and I would like to take one on a week's holiday to Southern Thailand, mainly as there may not be a lot to do in the evenings (or maybe just SOME evenings). However, I've no idea if such a thing would be allowed to pass airport security - I don't really see why not, but you never know.

 

I've tried searching for info but come up blank so far. Anybody have any good info about this ?

 

Appreciated

 

Cheers 😁

Treat as a laptop i.e. when going through security take it out and put it in the box to go through the X-ray machine

An issue might be that you can't turn it on by battery. I'm under the impression that they sometimes order people to power up their laptops.

Sorry - been away! Thanks for the replies -

 

--> PR - agreed, can't see why it should be a problem (but then again TIT)

 

--> JP - Yes, I was thinking along the same lines - take out the box and accessories (batteries would be out of the remote) and put it all in another tray/box.

 

--> JT - It ain't a laptop. 😁

 

I actually don't know anybody that has taken such a box thru security. I guess Firesticks and stick-pcs look too much like a flash/thumb drive to be of any real concern to security. However, my tv box is a normal flat, square, black box.  Security ain't never too fond of small black boxes!
