What is this I read about taking batteries out of everything? Why do you have to take batteries out of your Camera? Do you have to throw them away or what is the deal? Thanks for your help, leaving in two days and want to be prepared.

Batteries or no batteries? Go figure. On flight from Atlanta to Canada some time back, was told to remove all batteries from carry-ons. On return flight, almost "lost" my digital camera to Canadian security because there were no batteries in the camera so as to demonstrate it's operation. Had to reclaim (lucky to do) an already checked bag and place camera in checked luggage. My plan next time: call airport security and/or airline and get definitive read-out on battery regulations. No sure cure but it *might* help.

I brought the batteries for the digital camera with it on the arguement that I would have to prove it is a camera as I would with a laptop. Nobody said nutten.

The battery thing appears to be something that some security people or airlines have taken upon themselves. The rules about what you are allowed and are not allowed to take on board can be found at:

Is this an american thing? Because my handluggage consisted of a clearly recognizable photo-backpack with 2 camera's in it, both with batterypacks attached. No trouble at all between Amsterdam - Curacao - Bonaire.

Marc, we travel in and out of the US once, sometimes twice a year. We have never been asked to remove batteries, only film (at Miami).. At Dulles, well, we boarded a flight there approx three days after the shoe bomber incident(Dec 23 2001). Our shoes were not checked, and I boarded the plane with Hugh's lighter in my hand luggage.
