I wonder if they would allow more than two if they were packed in the plastic battery carriers that hold 4-12 batteries?

Thanks for the "heads up", Jan. I had not heard about this change yet. cb

I bring about 40 plus Ni-MH which are in plastic boxes to keep them safe and apart. I wouldn't want them in my carry on.

Hi, I am leaving today and just checked Continental's web site regarding batteries and they say only 2 extra allowed per person. Are they kidding?? Do you know know how many rechargable batteries we bring along for our underwater camera and lights?? Anyone travel since the new regulations? Always something new, sigh.

Kim, This is a new Government ruling. If you bring more then the 2 extra batteries, and they are found, plan on tossing them at security. Remember they also need to be placed in the original packaging or in individual plastic bags.

These are"LITHIUM" Battries! Not all batteries will be limited...

Ron, Yes you are correct. I should have said, if you plan on taking more than 2 extra LITHIUM batteries and they are found, plan on tossing them at security.

I just quickly read the Gov notice referred to in the initial post above. It lists various limits based on the lithium content. Does anyone know how much lithium is in a AA battery? Maybe this does not apply to them. The notice said something about large batteries. I don't have any with me at the moment so I have no idea of the lithium content. I need to do more research but maybe someone has the answer. If this does not apply to AA's it would still be a good idea to take a copy of the notice with you, "just in case".

"For personal use, there is generally no restriction on the number of spare batteries allowed in carry-on baggage. That includes cell phone batteries, “hearing aid" button cells, and AA/AAA batteries available in retail stores, as well as almost all standard laptop computer batteries. However, you may carry no more than two larger batteries, in the range of 100 – 300 watt hour rating. These include some extended life laptop computer batteries, such as the “universal” lithium ion battery pictured below."
