The US Transportation Security Administration (TSA) says that users on some in-bound flights originating in certain overseas airports will have to prove [to the security agent] that their devices power on and work as expected.

Powerless devices will not be permitted onboard the aircraft. The traveler may also undergo additional screening.

The list of where this new rule will be implemented is not yet known so for now, make sure your devices have enough power to switch on and be used. This is another reason why you should always travel with an additional portable battery.
