Hey John,

Maybe, I wasn't reading carefully enough but what are you using the Black & Decker Power to Go for?

I plug it into my wireless mic receiver for "wireless on the go"

You can also use the two 9 volt battery setup to power the wireless receiver.

Okay. Got it now. I made a AA battery pack for my receiver. It uses 8 AA batteries but lasts quite a while. I haven't used one set completely up but I estimated that it would give me 8 - 12 hours of use on 8 AA's.

I don't want to get behind you two trying to get through airport security. Does it tick? LOL

I thought about that when I flew from Reno back to Knoxville a couple of years ago. I had just picked up my iCue Duo from Kelly Duro at the I.B.M. Convention and I didn't want to leave it in checked baggage so I put it in my carry on bag. I was afraid security would be concerned about this small black box with an LED readout that looks like a timer!

Fortunately, they didn't look at it.

Or UN "Fortunately" Michael. The fact that they do not knwo what something like this is should have had them look at it or ask. While I do not wish you delays it just shows you that we are no safer now then were there then as the chuckle head on captial hill keeps trying to justify is actions and waste. I better put a :) in there so as not to think I was being overly serious.

Too many things are slipping buy screeners. It would be all too easy for another disaster.

On a lighter note, I wonder if anyone has still been able to sneak their birds on the plane in their dove pockets. IT used to a popular way around issues of quarantine.
