Teenagers and PS4

Explorer C

Wanting to know if my teenagers can pack their PS4 leaving from Charlotte, NC headed to California?

Can they pack it?  Yes.  Would I do it?  No, not unless they plan to bring it in their carry on luggage as I feel like there is an increased risk of damage or theft of electronic items in checked baggage.  Plus, you're going to California, who needs a PS4 when there is so much to do out there!


From the TSA "What Can I Bring" page:

There are companies that sell travel insurance for game consoles.
