    really? Didnt know that. I thought it was based upon size of pack (wh)

    Looking over regulations, these can be put in carry on, as long as are taped all up.

    Although I saw somethign about 2g lithium non rechargeable limitation.

    non-rechargable lithium batteries require about 0.3 grams lithium metal per Ah.

    A 9Ah C cell thus has about 2.7gms of lithium metal in it. TSA limits each lithium battery to 2gms of lithium or less.

    Bottom line is that lithium C cells are too big to fly on a passenger aircraft. They can in theory fly freight.

    rechargable li-ion have different limitations.

    good know the specifics, thx Richard!

    I guess if I ever travel in carry on with my head, I should remove the C cells for alkalines.
