It anyone aware of any problems flying with Ikelite's DS161 lithium ion strobe batteries?

 

In particular can you put them in checked baggage, considering that they are lithium ion batteries?

 

If any problems flying in or out of Mexico from the US I would like to know.

 

Thank you

Yes, thanks

 

That is what Ikelite recommended.

 

Has anyone tried to bring three strobe batteries in their carryon?
