News for Traveling Photographers

The US Department of Transportation just announced new safety rules regarding the transport of rechargeable lithium batteries.  As of January 1, 2008, passengers may not pack spare lithium batteries in their checked baggage (spare = extra; if the batteries are in devices, they’re not spare).  Passengers may pack extras in their carry-on bags.  Apparently this change is due to safety concerns.

Other reminders for those who don’t fly often: When going through airport security, don’t forget to remove your shoes, take your large electronics (laptops, etc.) out of your bag, and place any liquids, gels, or aerosols in a 1 qt or smaller plastic baggie.

    I didn’t pack Frank’s hair creme because it’s a solid, right? Security told I needed to pack it into my quart size bag (which was already bulging). I said, “It’s a solid, not a liquid. The FAA doesn’t require that.” And he replied, “Actually, it’s a creme.” I was thinking, “Since when did creme become a type of matter different from solid?” Whatever. 🙂
