MaxLife is the best at stopping leaks and usage that I have seen. I'm no big fan of Valvoline, but they are changing my mind. That said, if you don't have a leak, I like M1, SOPUS and Conoco-Phillips products.

Don't check it, carry it on. I have never had a problem with that other than simply being asked to switch it on and demonstrate it. As others have said checked baggage is wide open to theft and damage.
