Butane and security

I'm thinking of packing my cordless curling iron with my checked baggage. The problem is, I also will have to take the butane catridges it runs on. Is this still allowed?

FAA rules say no, with exceptions (aren't there always?)

Just took mine to Paris last month and didn't have any problems transatlantic or on flights in France.

I have flown with mine in my carryon at least six times since September. Last flight to and from Phoenix, I was selected to go through the security screening. I had to leave my half filled flask of French brandy behind (or drink it -- at 11 in the morning) and they said nothing about the curling iron.

The irons are OK - but the tanks are not allowed. Many people do get them through security - but just as many have them confiscated. (the same goes for butane lighters)
