We have recently bought a Pulsar thermal scope and are very happy with it and are planning to travel with it abroad. Now I have heard rumors that someone has had it confiscated in the security check in Singapore…
During my last trip, the security staff in Beijing were incredibly suspicious and besides binocular and cameras I had to remove all batteries and torches from the hand luggage. Another person got rid of her power bank. Luckily I hadn’t got the thermal this time.
I will go through security in Denmark, Moscow, Mongolia, Spain, Ecuador and Peru later this year and now I wonder if I really dare to bring the thermal. I really, really don’t want to loose it but of course bought it for use on trips!!
What are your experiences of travel with thermal scope??
