Security checks at airport and batteries
I use #10, tiny batteries. The first couple times I put my purse with them in it through the x-ray at airport I noticed my batteries would last only a couple hours before that dreaded "beep beep beep" then dead. I tried getting them through just handing them to TSA, went through a world of hassle (and a moment of realizing that I might not get on the airplane), finally they hand inspected the unopened package clearly marked "hearing aid batteries", looked at my aids (took out of my ear), then x-rayed than and said I was good to go.

Now I put them in my pocket and walk through the human scanner and have not had a problem.

Wondering if anyone else has had problems like this with either batteries going DOA or hassles with TSA.
