Can I Take Camera Batteries on a Plane
If you are planning on travelling on Airplane with spare/replacement batteries for cameras in the near future, there are some rules you should know about.
Spare (uninstalled) lithium ion and lithium metal batteries must be carried in carry-on baggage only. When a carry-on bag is checked at the gate or at plane side, all spare lithium batteries must be removed from the bag and kept with the passenger in the aircraft cabin.
The rule is essentially a proactive step to prevent disasters caused by potential lithium battery combustion from taking place in the cargo of a plane.
Battery terminals (usually the ends) must be protected from potential short circuit (i.e., the terminals must not come in contact with other metal) by keeping the batteries in their original retail packaging, placing tape across the contacts to isolate the terminals, using a battery case, using a battery sleeve in a camera bag, or putting them snugly in a plastic bag or protective pouch.
Batteries must be protected from damage. Keep each battery away from other batteries and metal objects such as coins, keys, and jewelry.
Pack your batteries carefully to avoid crushing, puncturing, or any high degree of pressure on the battery, which can result in an internal short-circuit and risk overheating and fire.
