View Full Version : Canister light and the TSA

09-21-2013, 06:21 PM
Bought a canister light recently. We are heading out to Bonaire in a couple weeks and I am looking for advice where to pack it. The head is definitely going in my carry on but has anyone been prevented by the TSA from bringing the battery in their carry on as well? Disconnected of course. The TSA websites states they ban only spillable batteries.

print out the website where it says spillable batteries only and put the battery in your carry on... You WILL be searched no question about it...have the manual of the lite with you in case they ask...

I have flown with my canister light probably half a dozen times. Always had battery in my carry one- usually get a weird look or two - but the swab it with the explosive detector - and then laught and send me on my way
