Can i take a rechargeable cordless Interplak toothbrush on a flight or will it be confiscated? I just bought it and don't want it to be taken from me. I read on the Federal website something about not bringing battery operated devices that could explode but it wasn't too specific. Any ideas?

From the TSA website:

If you must carry a battery-powered device in any baggage, package it to prevent inadvertent activation. For instance, you should pack a cordless power tool in a protective case, with a trigger lock engaged. If there is an on-off switch or a safety switch, tape it in the "off" position.

So it seems OK..

Cordless toothbrush, OK. But don't try to sneak a jar of frozen vegetable soup on the plane! That will be confiscated (I guess they thought I was going to launch a terrorist attack with it!)

Default thanks..

btw, can i bring prepared- at- home food (like a sandwich) to eat on the plane(no food served on this airline) or will that be suspect too?!

any advice for me, who hasn't flown since 1978 and has had constant airplane dreams (they planes actually never crash)? my doctor has offered to prescribe xanax for the round trip flights, do you really think i need it?

I've brought sandwiches and snacks on recently. I haven't had a problem at all. You might also want to bring an empty water bottle. Once you get past security, you can fill it up at a drinking fountain.

Be careful about that.. depending on your body, sometimes drugs act in a way they shouldn't... meaning that you're taking it to calm you down from fear of flight, but it can actually increase your paranoia to an unsettling level. I always find it better to avoid taking something if it's really not necessary.

Default Don't be a hater . . . . lol

Everything you need to know, except for rare circumstances, is right here:
TSA | Transportation Security Administration | For Travelers (http://www.tsa.gov/travelers/index.shtm - broken link)

Batteries are fine. There is a rumbling that a certain type of battery will not make the cut, but nothing has been announced. You'll be fine. Just make sure there the clutter of metal is minimal, no liquids or anything that shares that consistency is over 3.4 oz. Make sure all liquids are in a 1 quart zip lock bag, not a gallon.

Solid food is fine. Liquid food can be tainted with anthing. They're not going to take anyones word that something is what it is. If they do it for one person, then the next scumbag, not making eye contact, sweating, stuttering, and visually unkempt passenger that can't remember where he's going with a questionable jar of liquid slurry has to get the same pass. There's really a method to the madness there. They just can't explain the reason behind it.

But seriously, solid food alright. Batteries are alright. Read the link and have a good trip.
