Is the battery removable and does it comply with airline regulations?

Yes, the battery is removable. In some cases, the airline might ask you to check in your luggage. When a carry-on bag is checked at the gate or at planeside, all lithium batteries must be removed from the bag and kept with the passenger in the aircraft cabin.
