Hi

I heard that there are restrictions when it comes to travelling by air with Anton Bauer (Hytron) batteries. Is this true?

The cases that the steadicam comes in, are they good enough to check in when flying?

No that's for the large Dionics. Any high capacity Lithium battery for that matter.

I've traveled by air with AB Hytron 50's for the past 3 years 3 times a month. I never had a problem with checked bags and only once did I have a TSA worker question what it was :blink: and go get his Boss for approval when it was in my camera bag.

Thanks

Good to know.

How about the Steadicam cases? Are they good enough to check in or do I have to get a Pelican case ???
