PSA for TSA...You may want to avoid packing 'electronics, batteries & wires' in near proximity.

As it may create an 'unfavorable' image?

So true... I try to pack all my chargers and power strips in my checked bag and the batteries, camera, etc in the carry on.  A funny aside coming back from Egypt last week...


The check in agent asked if I had any batteries in my 'checked bags' and I said 'no'. They said ...good as they all had to be in my hand carry.  Fast forward to the TSA people checking us for the 3rd time (hey we are in an Arab country so I'm ok with that and the US TSA expressly requires an add'l security check on all flights to JFK... so again...I'm good with that.


But the TSA security guy wants to know why I have batteries in my carry on? He makes me 'check them' using one of carry on bags that I did not plan to check. No amount of discussion would dissuade him.


Right hand... left hand syndrome. :(
