    You can carry on as many as you like, or or at least as many as can fit. You can't check them in your luggage, but they're under 100wH, so you're not limited if you bring them in your carry-on. You should tape the contacts, and maybe have individual baggies handy for them, in case the TSA complains.

    The chargers can be checked in luggage if you want.

    I'd also suggest that you have a printed copy of the FAA regulations ready just in case the TSA person is unaware of them: https://www.faa.gov/about/office_or...fo/media/Airline_passengers_and_batteries.pdf

    As Graham suggests, you might also want to tape some strong plastic over the connectors (see item Q5/A5) in the above.
