Does anyone know if there would be a problem taking a handful of D800 batteries in my carry-on luggage? I have to fly tomorrow and it just occured to me that I've never taken extra batteries before that werent in a checked bag. I dont see why they should care. The energy stored in them is a lot less than for example in a laptop battery. However they are loose and not in the camera, and knowing TSA there is no way to predict how they would react, irrespective of what any official policy might be. They arent cheap so leaving them behind is not an option and I'd hate to miss my flight over it.

I've had no problems including with international flights.

If a TSA officer had a concern with a spare battery I'd offer to put the spare inside the camera and turn the camera on. This will show him for a fact that it's a real battery.
