Oh, yep, wasn't aware of the design of that battery sorry I thought you meant a one piece battery, which inside has the cells and the controller, but in that case you posted yes it is considered an installed battery

Also I'm guessing the two top capped pieces are battery posts, they're solidly capped so good to go :)

Interestingly, the XPLOR 600 battery is under 100w/h (96.6) so it will not require any special approval to carry in your carry on.

Thanks for the correction. I'm not sure where I got my number from.

Specifically for the AD360 "battery" which is in fact not just a spare battery, but a two piece assembly which includes the Power Bank 960 and (the bottom 1/3rd) a removable/replaceable battery pack,..

QUOTED IMAGE

If one packs the PB960 one could easily argue that this is a battery installed in the PB960.

So would this be suitable to travel with? Seems like it would be fine.

Love the ability to universally control all the groups from the X1, makes it really easy to go back and forth between f8 and f2 without screwing with your ratios (I used to use ND filters). Got everything in the mail last night, put it to work first thing this morning.

I think so. The 360 itself is only a little larger than a full size speedlite. Add to that the battery pack shown above, and the reflector dish, cable, and it's still a whole lot lighter than a strobe.

I'm in San Francisco at the moment. Had 3 360s with batteries in checked baggage and they travelled without a problem.
Recently did trips to NY and Miami with same kit also no problem There were TSA inspection notices in the case each time.

I suspect, although I've not done it, that a 600 with the battery attached would also travel without a problem.

This last trip I also had 2 860II speedlites in the case with lithium batteries installed. The spare 860II batteries I had in my camera bag which is carried on.

What airline was this? I was told no lithium batteries are allowed in checked luggage because they are a fire hazard. All lithium batteries must be in a carry on. I have flown several times and when I inquired they were very specific about this. It was OK to check non lithium batteries as long as they were in a proper storage case.

See, that's your problem - honesty.

Actually, the difference is installed vs loose. No loose batteries in checked luggage - installed only. See port 1481 in this thread for links and details.

Just remember, the rules change.

Something happens and they get updated for the new threat. Batteries catching fire was identified as a problem and these rules were updated.

Some terrorist tries something and they get updated again.

Always check before you fly. :)


C&C always welcomed...
On my images, of course, and on my words as well--as long as it's constructive :).

American.
First couple of times I told the agent about the batteries and they get concerns. I had to explain to them that they are attached to the equipment in accordance with the TSA guidelines. After seeing that the TSA had looked in the bags and let them through. I 've quit telling the agents.

I fired about 1000 shots today in studio; not a single misfire, 100% consistent exposure, and from what I can tell from the back of the camera, even the colour was fairly consistent.

The TSA has nothing to do with that, it's an FAA regulation, and each airline can also have their own rules as long as they are stricter than the FAA ones.
Lithium batteries have to do with carrying Hazmat, nothing to do with terrorizers but let's not give them ideas either lol

Last night as I was testing both lights (XPLOR 600, I had just unpacked my 2nd light) 1 light was powered by the battery, the other powered by the optional AC adapter and the AC powered one was getting a LOT of misfires!! Worse in TTL then in manual, but on average it misfired about 50% of the time which I thought was unacceptable. Today I tested them outside ..... not a single misfire! Maybe I was getting some sort of interference indoors?
Anyway, for my test shoot last night I ended up just taking a few shots with a single light since I had my "model" there anyway :p
