International airport security is widely refusing battery packs from checked or carry-on baggage, due to fire risk when the cabin is pressurized or if ambient temperature should change quickly.

This is a major factor limiting manufacturers from increasing battery capacity. They may exceed future regulation.

Here is a good pack I own, which is being refused already.

Interesting, I have always used one when flying for my iPad or Laptop as recently as last month to Australia. Where did you travel internationally that yours was refused?

Within the USA. But American carriers outside the USA are also refusing.

The recent Hoverboard revolution has brought more attention to this issue.
