So I just magnetised a gans 356 air, and I will be going overseas in a few weeks time and want to bring it on board my flight. I have been reading the baggage restrictions of my country's airlines (Singapore), and its said that magnetic materials are prohibited. Not even allowed in check in luggage!
The magnets I used in my cube are the n35 neodymium ones, and they pretty much do not attract anything outside of the cube.
What I am asking is if anyone has experience in bringing magnetic cubes onboard planes without the authorities confiscating it, either in carry-on or check-in luggage. Would be even better if you are from Singapore too and brought these cubes overseas

By the way, I know there is a thread about cubes in an airplane, but that was in 2009 and magnetic cubes weren't a thing back then. I dont wish to necro that thread again.

You should just call the airline's help desk. They should be able to figure it out.

I was actually wondering this to, because Im boarding a plane to florida tomorrow morning lol. I wrote yes, because the magnets in a cube dont attract to anything outside of the cube, like @toastycubes mentioned.

If you just bring the cube in they should stop you or anything

I had no issues bringing my DIY Valk M with fairly strong magnets through security. For reference, we flew Southwest from Columbus to Orlando and back again.

Was it in your carryon or check in baggage?

I've carried 10,000+ magnets with a garbage bag full of pieces and a rag doused with gasoline.

I've also flown all over with magnetic cubes with no issues.
Domestic, International, checked, carry-on, etc etc.
No issues whatsoever!

However, try to carry a microphone with tangled wires, and it's a bomb check

Carry-on. It was a bag full of only cubes.

I am also from Singapore, and I don't have any problems on bringing magnetic cubes abroad and back. I have brought my Gan 356 Air UM, Valk M, WuQue M, Moyu Magnetic Skewb and Pyraminx, Weilong GTS2M Lite, basically any magnetic cube you can think of, all in one hand-carry bag. I had no problems. Maybe you had bad luck that day.

Note quite sure if you're serious... If so, tell us more...

I'm also VERY scared that my cube will be taken away. $45.00 for a GAN 356 AIR UM?! bruh.. But I'm going overseas soon on a small trip and also want to bring a cube lol. I'm just afraid the magnets would look weird on the security screen and the lube might be a problem. #### LegendaryMJS ##### Member I'm also VERY scared that my cube will be taken away.$45.00 for a GAN 356 AIR UM?! bruh..

I think the best is that you check-in the magnetic cubes and bring a non-magnetic cube with you on the plane.

I have emailed TSA about the problem, and it seems like you can! If the security guards think it is a bomb threat, they have the right to take it away or confiscate it. In general, magnets are allowed on a plane, (dried up lube, too...) and if you don't believe me, go to tsa.gov and see for yourself. Lube can't be brought I guess.

I think it will be okay because if you look think about how many people took flights to nationals and worlds and a lot of people had magnetic cubes so i think you will be alright.

I think yes!

I am currently travelling over seas at the moment from Canada, and I've had no troubles going through "luggage checks" with my magnetic cubes inside of my luggage in Canada.
