Fuel cells and airport security

Samsung just showed a “fuel cell”:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fuel_cell “docking station”:http://www.engadget.com/2006/12/27/samsung-shows-off-fuel-cell-dock-with-one-month-of-laptop-power/ for their “Q35 ultraportable”:http://www.samsung.com/uk/products/mobilecomputing/ultramobile/np_q35t001suk.asp
Now, given that fuel cells typically uses methanol or other highly flammable liquids, a question arises: How does this work with the new security rules that “forbid you from bringing liquids in quantities bigger than 100ml”:http://www.tsa.gov/travelers/airtravel/prohibited/permitted-prohibited-items.shtm#1 (and I’m pretty sure they forbid any combustible liquid)? Are we going to be required to check in and leave our laptops with baggage handlers?

  1. This could be a potential problem, and in this day and age with security increasing day by day, fuel cells laptops could be dead even before being rolled out properly.
