Traveling Hunters Must Observe New Rules For Lithium Batteries

Lithium batteries are no longer allowed in checked luggage, but can still be brought in carry-on. Hunters should remember this when packing electronics.

Add lithium batteries to the list of hazardous products that can't be
transported freely on airlines. Effective January 1, the federal government decreed that spare lithium batteries couldn't be carried in check-in luggage, but could be taken aboard in carry-on bags.

Lithium batteries are commonly used to power cellphones, cameras, laptop computers, GPS units and the like. However, there have been instances when lithium batteries stored in planes have caused fires when they exploded due to pressure changes. Lithium batteries carried in pressurized cabins are considered safe by the Department of Transportation.

Some pre-installed lithium batteries are allowed in checked baggage, but the DOT recommends that all equipment with the batteries be carried on.
If People do their best what else is there?

Then said he unto them, But now, He that hath a purse, let him take it, and likewise his scrip: and he that hath no sword, let him sell his garmet, and buy one
Luke 22:36
