where do I pack hair straighteners? ?

With the new security measures now in place where do I pack my hair straighteners? ? I would normally pack them in my suitcase but im sure ive recently read somewhere ( cant remember where) that ALL electrical items need to be scanned separately and I would hate to be called over the tanoy to open my case to take my straighteners to be scanned when all I need to do is put them in hand luggage???? Tried ringing newcastle airport but cant get through to anyone

Here is a link from another forum...From how I read it you should be able to put straightners and hair dryers in your hold luggage as they do not have a battery in them to charge them up..I am the same as you I always pack them in my hold luggage,its just my phone and tablet in my hand luggage..

New security measures apply to battery powered/rechargable electrical items. Things that have to be plugged in like hairdryers/straighteners/fans etc can be put in your hold luggage.

Thank you all for your fast replies.

From that link it does list hair straighteners as something that would need to be checked??

From what I can understand is they would have to be in hand luggage and fully charged so you can switch them on for security

Finally got through to newcastle airport and straightners can be packed in either suitcases or hand luggage.

They said that it would be easier in suitcases as then they wouldn't need to be tsken out etc whereas if in hand luggage you would need to take them out to be scanned etc
