    I took Allegiant Flight 1942 from Richmond VA to Nashville, TN today.
    When I got my bag at the BNA baggage carousel, the top zipped compartment was partially open. Most items (computer cords, etc.) were inside.
    However, the battery charge (black plastic size is a pack of cigarettes) was missing.
