I received a Kindle Fire HD last year and plan on taking it to Nationals with me in January. After looking through the TSA regulations I think I can just leave the kindle in its case in my carry on bag. I will of course turn the device off and don't plan on using it on the plane.
My concern is that since this is one of the smaller commuter jets my carry on bag may end up getting "gate checked" which means it ends up in the hold with the rest of the luggage. I always have to take my medications out of the carry on at that point because if they freeze they are totally ruined. Would my kindle be ok in the baggage area? I'm fairly sure with my meds in my purse there wouldn't be room for the kindle. Of course, I would be very upset if the cold damages my kindle. I've been told stuff doesn't freeze in that area, but I'm not sure I believe that.
Anyone have any experience with a tablet in the baggage hold? Thanks for any help! I'm a natural worrier so please excuse any silly questions from me
