Air Travel with Lipo Cells
I was talking with a friend who works for HP and we were talking about my trip to Snowbirds. While talking he asked about flying with the lipo cells. After our talk, I did a search and got this from Safetravel.gov with a search on Google:
Q. What kinds of batteries are allowed in checked baggage?
A. Except for spare (uninstalled) lithium batteries, all the batteries allowed in carry-on baggage are also allowed in checked baggage. The batteries must be protected from damage and short circuit or installed in a device. Battery-powered devices—particularly those with moving parts or those that could heat up—should be protected from accidental activation. Spare lithium batteries (both lithium metal and lithium ion/polymer) are prohibited in checked baggage.
Q. Is there a limit to the number of batteries I can carry?
A. There is no limit to the number of consumer-size batteries or battery-powered devices that a passenger can carry. Only the larger lithium ion batteries are limited to two (2) batteries per passenger; see “Lithium ion batteries” explanation above.
So anyone who has used airlines to travel had an issue with this?? Already have the laptop as a carry on and since I'm running two oval lipo classes at a min. I was going to carry 4 lipos.
