RE: The tariff classification of a powerbank unit from England.

Dear Ms. Johnson:

In your letter dated August 9, 1989, you requested a tariff classification ruling, on behalf of Quokka International, Northbrook, IL.

Your letter describes the powerbank unit, identified in the submitted literature, Cat. No. PB001 as a device that can be used to start car engines, as a 12 volt battery charger, or as a totally independent power supply. Your letter states that the principal use in the United States would be as a charger.

The applicable subheading for the powerbank, PB001, will be 8504.40.0025, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for "[s]tatic converters, [r]ectifiers, [o]ther." The rate of duty will be 3 percent ad valorem.

This ruling is being issued under the provisions of Section 177 of the Customs Regulations (19 C.F.R. 177).

A copy of this ruling letter should be attached to the entry documents filed at the time this merchandise is imported. If the documents have been filed without a copy, this ruling should be brought to the attention of the Customs officer handling the transaction.
