I got this e-mail late evening 1/7 from our of our divers who works for the TSA and who gave me permission to share it with you:

"Just wanted to give you and other diver's some inside info on TSA rules. I work for TSA and the Lithium Battery regulation came out this week. We were told to stand down on the situation and do NOT enforce the rule. You were right in the fact that it is a DOT rule not FAA or TSA. If anybody is still worried about there lithium batteries, it only applied to checked baggage and if you have them in the device it's no problem. If you have spare one's throw them in a plastic bag by themselves individually so it cannot make contact with metal. Anyway, just wanted to clarify that TSA would not be enforcing that rule."
