Can I bring it on a flight with me?

Posted by Alchemy Imageworks on

Yes. Most airlines allow devices with batteries up 100-160 Watt Hour capacity to be brought on flights in carry-on baggage. The Watt hour rating of our RG1000 is 38.9, so well within the allowable limits.

This is rare and usually only the case when the vehicle is not running and the vehicle battery is low.
