From January 1st 2009 IATA changed its regulations relating to the transportation of Lithium Ion batteries. These regulations do not affect NiCad and most other popular videographer battery pack types.

First, the process for identifying the capacity of a battery cell or battery pack has been simplified. Prior to these new rules, lithium-ion batteries were regulated based on their lithium equivalent content.
The second important change in regulation limits the maximum capacity of a lithium-ion battery being transported aboard a passenger airliner to 160 watt-hours, and requires the airline operator's permission to carry a lithium-ion battery with more than 100 watt-hour capacity. And as with the prior rules, spare lithium-ion batteries can only be transported in carry-on luggage.
