    bring in rechageable ones

    As I recall, the restriction only applies for US flights.. The restriction is by the TSA..

    If your ballhead fits in your tripod bag, I suggest you leave it on.. It will look weird if you bring a stand with no head.. They may think its suspicious.

    Max weight you can carry is by airlines. 7KG on SQ.

    According to SQ on this page http://www.singaporeair.com/saa/en_U...strictions.jsp

    Spare Lithium Batteries are restricted.. Leave in your checked in bag.

    Oh yar, max I carried on was like 10 kg =x Chocolates from switzerland

    So far, I had no issues with everything, except I don't bring tripod... If I do, it's going into my check-in luggage... Too heavy to carry on board... So far some managed to get tripod onboard, some don't. But seriously, Australia, I would suggest check in the tripod... and try not to go beyond 7 kg... Everytime I am there, they ask to check my carry-on bag (by putting on the belt to see what is the weight...)
