    I know the FAA changed regulations on battery size. I'm planning on flying with 3 90w V Mount batteries. Can anyone confirm that those will pass TSA inspection? Their site lists 100w maximum but I wanted to double check and see if anyone had real-world experience.

    I fly frequently with these 91wh V-Mount batteries and have never had a problem. I only bring two though.

    You should be fine, but gaff tape the connectors on the battery to make tsa feel all safe and cosy. Ive flown with over the limit in a pinch and haven't had problems but it may be more of an issue if you're coming in on an international flight. It also helps to print out the airlines rules and bring it with you incase you run into an employee that is not informed.
