I need to travel next week via Delta Airlines for a family funeral. Has anyone traveled in USA lately that can tell me the eact travel restrications involving the number of batteries I can put into my carry on camerra bag. I have the batteries (what Iwould call bnattery packs since they are not AAs) that go into a Sony A200. I would like to be able to have 1 in the camera and 2 in the bag that way I can leave the charger home. Can they be loose or should I but each in a seperate ziplock bag.

I never had an issue when traveling before but then gain I was using a Fuji with AAs.

I tired the TSA website but could fully underatand the restrictions.

the best way to carry the extra battery is to put electrical tape over the contacts, then put the battery in a plastic, see-thru bag. I use a colored tape so it shows up on the battery. Never had a problem getting thru the airport.
