I am visiting some friends next month and was wondering if I would run into any problems bringing some of my lasers and batteries packed in my carry-on bag on the flight. The flight is in the USA.
Cool, thanksI would remove the batteries and pack the lasers in your checked baggage. The batteries I would pack separate from the lasers. That way no one can fire one up to see what it is. You can say they are LED flashlights if asked unless you have some labbies which wouldn't be an isue because they need to be powered from a wall outlet.
Sorry thought stating the flight was in the USA is enough. CA to TX and on return TX to CA. Most stuff I found online says that I should be fine and like paul1598419 said, if asked say its a LED flashlight. And I'll be carrying the lasers separate from the batteries. The lasers are a 1w 520nm fom DTR's Shop, a 5w 445nm sanwu striker, and 1W 635nm sanwu challenger 2.Paul nailed it.. but if you are flying 'light' (no checked bags) you could have a prob when your 'carry' is X ray- ed. I have heard about collectors shipping the lasers to where they are headed.
well-- I see you failed to add your location into your profile!!!
We need that.. we also need to know WHERE you are flying..
WE tend to feel 'dissed' when that is done.. please consider adding it.
It does not take as much time as we have just given you...I hope you DID make an 'Intro' thread in our welcome/newcomers section. That too is kinda expected.. and just good manners.
