I have a portable 7 inch DVD player with a non removable rechargeable battery. The owners manual nor RCA gives me any info re the type of battery (ie lithium ion #'s). Airtran verbally tells me they are allowed.

reviewing Airtran's specifications for batteries, I don't want any last minute problems or confiscations because i bought this at a very low price and don't want to lose it

maybe i won't take my portable player with me (as much as i'd like to) ?

am i making too much of this?

my flight is on the 26th

Yes.

Airlines are installing wifi hotspots on their fleets. They are encouraging people to bring their own entertainment.

Yes, portable DVD players are very common carry on items, probably not far behind laptops. You just won't be able to use it during taxi, takeoff, or landing.

Next time, pay full price. Then you won't care if you lose it.

The "sarcasm" of some is amazing. Nasty really!

The restrictions on batteries are for checked baggage, not in cabin. There is no battery that powers a portable electronic device (CD/DVD player, laptop, etc.) that isn't allowed in cabin.
