This is not strictly correct. It does not have to be fully charged, you just need to show it powered up, if it does not power up, it will be confiscated. This applies to tablet devices as well.

Maybe someone should post a credible news link?

About 10 years ago they always used to ask you to switch laptops on to show it had power. Presumably they want to check a battery is in place.

Just make sure your devices have enough charge to power on

Fully charged when boarding first flight, flat as a fart when arrived at first destination, confiscated before boarding second flight;-);-)

Watch out for that !!!
