FYI: Flying with spare batteries

I know that the issue of traveling with spare batteries on airplanes has been brought up before, but I wanted to share a link that gives the definitive answer, at least if you're traveling within the U.S.

Safe Travel

That's all pretty good advice for general battery care even outwith aircraft travel.

If you're a AA person, Thomas Distributing makes some very nice cases. They hold 4 AA cells. If you buy batteries from them, they're generally included for free, or you can buy them a la carte for $1 each. I find them indispensable for keeping things organized (I'm planning a trip for April where I'll be packing 24 spare AAs).

I fly with spare batteries all the time and never have any problems. Can't understand the fuss!
