Kabuto® suitcase uses a 60 watts Lithium-ion removable battery, which is well within the FAA limit of 100 watts on Li-ion batteries.
As body scans, medal detectors and random bag checks are part of a standard security practice in airports, you may be asked to open your suitcase. All you need to do is to show the removable battery.
The battery in the Kabuto® suitcase is removable and has to be removed to check-in in order to comply with the latest airlines regulations.

Security officers have a master key to open your luggage in case of necessity: let TSA know they hold a master key and point out the logo on the TSA approved smart-lock.
Your Kabuto® has been designed in accordance to civil aviation regulation FAA. The electronic lock is normally dormant and turns on as you approach a finger to save battery life. You can safely open your luggage during a flight, as long as the signal “fasten your seatbelt” is not lit.
The Kabuto® Lite is exactly the same expandable format as the Kabuto®, it does not have a battery or fingerprint opening system. A dedicated pocket inside allows you to place your own external battery, you can connect your battery to the cable that feeds the plug near the lock.
