How do I pack batteries for electronic devices?

Bringing Batteries for Electronic Devices

Due to the possibility of a fire, all batteries for electronic devices should be packed in the original retail package and wrapped in insulating tape to prevent loose batteries from coming into contact with metal objects.

Please note: Lithium batteries should be packed in carry-on, not checked, baggage to protect the battery from getting crushed or punctured during the flight.
