That’s right, the Department of Homeland Security now says ink and toner cartridges larger than 16 ounces cannot be packed for a flight. The ban applies to both carry-on and checked luggage.
It’s all because of a terrorist plot discovered last month to hide explosives in the cartridges.
Now I, for one, have never packed, nor thought about packing, a printer ink cartridge for a flight. But I suppose the situation does come up from time to time. I know that there are portable printers for photos and documents that some people may carry when flying.
Will this new rule inconvenience you? We’d love to hear about it in the comments.
