p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Airline travel with PCB Lithium Batteries


I am looking for advice on traveling via air with the Paul Buff Lithium Batteries.
I have read the TSA info, and am looking for what really happens when trying to fly with them; most specifically getting them thru security.

I need to carry more than the TSA allows, and you can't check them.
Shipping them is not necessarily and option.

Advice good or bad

As near as I can tell, the TSA regs allow you to travel with a total of four "medium size" (100WH to 300WH capacity) batteries:

1. one battery, installed in a device, in checked luggage
2. one battery, installed in a device, in carry-on baggage
3. two spare batteries, not installed in a device, in carry-on baggage

I don't think that the TSA permits you to travel as a passenger with more than that. You can ship more, as air cargo, but there are a bunch of requirements for special packaging and paperwork that probably make that impractical for a routine shoot.
