Hi all

I was just wondering whether electric shavers are allowed in cabin - i used to bring them without problem but given the recent security problems, will there be any problems now?

I've had no problems with taking an electric shaver on-board recently (at least in SIN, ICN, HKG, TPE, DPS, KUL and LHR).

Neither had I in ZRH, YYZ, YVR, CDG, LHR and VIE  Smile. So you should be fine, I guess.

On the SAA safety video it says:

"Once the seatbelt signs have been switched off you may use certain laptop computers, hand held calculators, electric shavers and portable tape or CD players during the flight"

Just PLEASE go to the toilet to use it.

After Monday and Tuesday even the calendar says WTF...

In fact it seems that an electric shaver is one of the few electric devices you are allowed to use DURING take-off. With seatbelt fastened, of course.

I'll try to dig up the rule.

I scratch my head, therefore I am.

The TSA has a listing on their website:


It's come in handy for me traveling within the states.  thumbsup
