Hi everyone.I now have my Osmo and have ended up with 3 batteries.
I'm off to India soon with it and was wandering about flights and these Lipo batteries that I have.


They must be put in cabin bag not checkin baggage?
I've bought a lipo guard bag but I'd rather not use it as it's a bit bulky.
Different airlines do different rules, but do you think I'll be okay with 3 batteries? Any other advice?

Thanks

They have to be in your carry-on bag according to the TSA

Hello!
Thanks for your post!
I won't give you any advise about the relevant flight regulation, however, I'll suggest that you visit DJI official website for some Spec. about Osmo battery: http://www.dji.com/product/osmo/info#specs

thanks R&L and Adela. I'm still not so sure about the amount you can carry on as baggage. I'll have a dig around for more info.

Hi Spud,
I would contact your actual airline to determine what their rules are, then you will be taking no chances. Have a great trip!

The airline itself will decide on how many batteries you can carry in your hand-luggage:
(a) already in the appliance, and
(b) as spares.

They will also specify how the spares must be carried (e.g. electrical tape over the terminals, etc.).

There is usually plenty of documentation on the airlines' websites.

Some people have reported (at least at Heathrow.) that sometimes the 'security people' aren't necessary fully conversant with the airlines' requirement and make things up as they go along

As said in above posts the airline will supply info on the batteries, there are spasific regulations on batteries size, mah,voltage etc, the Osmo batteries are small enough to go through security with no problem, I fly a lot and had no problem with the Osmo batteries

I recently flew, JetBlue to Florida and had my osmo with battery and 3 spare batteries in my carry-on as well as 3 iPads and had no issues with the airline or security. The spare osmo batteries must be in a ziplock bag.

Hi guys.
Just been looking at the Air India website, very little info was given about batteries. I did start a live chat session though and the operator, basically said, I can carry the batteries but would have to remove them from the camera. I'll not take any chances and keep them in that Lipo guard bag I think, thanks again everyone
