    Just went through customs at my local airport and they stopped my bag and took out the battery in the case and praised me in using the bag.
    No issues whatsoever and I'm still in the game

    Never thought about storing them in the lipo bags when travelling. Makes sense.

    I am going to need 4 bags as I have 4 batteries. Flying early next year to Costa Rica and want to bring the bird with us for aerial footage.

    I ordered mine from Amazon for pretty cheap and free shipping. The ones that were "fulfilled by Amazon" cost 2-3x more. The sucky thing is that the cheap ones came from China and took 4wks to arrive. They look/feel pretty good though.

    What description should I use to order them?. I want to order them soon as it may take some time to receive them, 4 wks or so. Don't want to wait until the last minute.

    I just searched for "lipo bag" on Amazon. Seeing that you're in the US, I think you have more options than us Canadians. I just ordered those rectangular, silver, single battery charge bags.

    They are awesome.
    I really don't see why everyone who travels with these drones doesn't buy them. it makes total sense to use them.

    Lipo bags can be used for the safe carriage and charging of lipo cells (as used in Phantom batteries). Just google "lipo failure" to see what can go wrong if the cells fail...this is what these bags look to contain if it all goes badly wrong. Thankfully it doesn't happen very often, but it does make you think!

    Agreed, there's no such thing as a stupid question.
