Battery Travel

By Linda Tancs

Alkaline, nickel cadmium, lithium ion.  Sounds like a chemistry class, doesn’t it?  No wonder, then, that the transport of these battery-making materials is addressed by the Transportation Security Administration.  You might be surprised to learn that typical, consumer-sized batteries are allowable in carry-on baggage.  In fact, whenever possible the TSA encourages the safe packing of your batteries in your carry-ons rather than checked bags so that the items are easily accessible in the event that onboard conditions give way to potential hazards.
