Dear All

I'm going to Malaysia in a month or so, and I want to do spotlighting when I'm there, as I did in 1998.

However in the the new climate of post Sept 11 security I'm not going to try to take my usual spotlight and rechargeable battery.

So I have two questions:

1. As anyone had experience of taking a flashlight with an ordinary 9V battery on international flights recently (of course I will contact the airline, but often the story you get from them is different from the story you get at the airport).

2. Has anybody had any success with a spotlight running on a 9V battery for wildlife spotlighting? (if so, brand-name, model no. &c please). And how long do you get from one 9V battery?
