EUC on Airplane (logo on battery)

Ok, so yesterday I was going around in Shenzhen looking for some nice goodies with my EUC and I encountered this (see attached). I saw before that there's plenty of manufacturers for this. What struck me the most was that it had a 249.6wh battery similar to my i5 and it had a logo of an aeroplane on the battery. The sales person didn't know much English so maybe it's just a miscommunication but he said (to my understanding) it can be carried on an aeroplane. Correct me if I am wrong, I think most airlines do not allow more than 160wh right? (at least the domestic flights)

Below found some images of the battery and I see a UN38.3 standard. Would that mean it can go to cargo planes only or if so it's also permissible on passenger flights?

I was thinking that maybe EUCs can have such batteries as optional for travelling. Wouldn't that be great for most of us?

They could probably print the likeness of Marty Backe on the batteries, but that doesn't mean they are MB endorsed.  :D

You look to be correct with the 160 wh limit at least according to AirCan.
