And we expect the cabin crew to know Flash Drive A from Flash Drive B?The FAA will ban that specific device if they catch wind of it, but your post was implying a blanket ban.
Well again, lithium batteries seemingly explode for no reason, but they don't outright ban lithium batteries. Yes you could probably track it down to a well known device, but how do you know that some other random battery (like a cheapo AliExpress battery bank) I have won't explode? Either way, it's likely the flash drive doesn't destroy itself by literally exploding. Just set up a buck-boost converter to feed back way more voltage than the flash chip likes and it'll sort itself out.And we expect the cabin crew to know Flash Drive A from Flash Drive B?
Or one of these with a SanDisk sticker on it?
My post was sort of in jest, but that is not too far fetched a concept.
