GH1 Batteries on a plane

The batteries are Lithium and have been banned by the over zealous air industry security so what can I do if I want to take my GH1 overseas? Has anybody here encountered airports confiscating batteries for cameras?? Any ideas pleasse?

Re: GH1 Batteries on a plane

The batteries for a GH1 are small and fine on domestic flights in the United States.

It is possible regulations at Indonesian airports are different. But if notebook computers are allowed, surely a small digital camera is allowed. Check these threads:

Besides the battery in the camera, how many additional batteries are you taking?

Re: GH1 Batteries on a plane

I've had it with all these mudpuckin' GH1 batteries on this mudpuckin' plane!



I've flown with GH2, HVX, and AF100 batteries in carry-on. Plus cell phone and laptop batteries (which are also Li-on). Never had a problem.
