(There is an error in the newly inserted 2.3.4.7 of the 56 Edition.)

Q.
There is an error in the Note of 2.3.4.7 which was newly inserted in the 56 Edition. The first sentence of the Note reads: “For spare lithium metal batteries with a lithium content exceeding 2 g and lithium ion batteries with a Watt-hour rating exceeding 160 Wh see 2.3.3.2. …” The 160 Wh printed here must be a mistake for 100 Wh as batteries in excess of 160 Wh are not permitted in baggage. (30 Nov 14)

A.
You have sharp eyes. Yes, the 160 Wh is a printing error. It should be 100 Wh. So the sentence must be corrected to read: “For spare lithium metal batteries with a lithium content exceeding 2 g and lithium ion batteries with a Watt-hour rating exceeding 100 Wh see 2.3.3.2 …” I believe IATA will add this correction at the chance of an addendum.
