I avoid flying through the USA because of the treatment meted out at Airports.

I have never had any issues with the batteries for my Nikon D3's which are much bigger than XP1 batteries.

They have small plastic caps that clip over the terminals to prevent shorts. I use a strip of electrical insulation tape over the terminals instead if the caps are not available (such as the XP1).

I see things like this in the same vein as the 7kg carry on limit - something to be ignored if you can get away with it.
