Post Battery Question

This is my first post so hello all and thanks for the information.

I lucked out and ordered my Kindle on Nov 19 and had it here by noon Nov 20.

I'll be taking a trip to the Big Apple in about a month and plan to take a spare battery since my battery life is, like most, only about a day with heavy use. I live out of EVDO range and drove the necessary 25 miles to get in range yesterday and bought several books over 45 minutes which drained my freshly charged battery to half empty.

Does anyone know if the new FAA rules outlined here:

will allow me to take a spare Kindle battery along in case the installed one poops out while on the plane or waiting in the airport. I will probably use the EVDO while waiting in the airport since it's a treat for me to not have to use my Mac to buy Amazon Kindle items.

Thanks for the advice!
