New Restrictions On Lithium Batteries

Loose lithium batteries will be banned in checked luggage and restricted in carry-on luggage starting Jan. 1. The Associated Press has the story and the TSA has the details.

The issue is fire safety.

I still recommend using lithium batteries for electronic devices when you travel. Just be sure to carry them in the device itself, or in the original packaging in your hand luggage.
