What are the Shipping Restrictions for Lithium Batteries?

Lithium is classed as a dangerous good by the International Air Transport Association, the majority of international carriers will refuse to ship batteries over a certain size and weight that are not included in or with equipment.

Our Pin Batteries contain Lithium, however they fall below the regulated weight for dangerous goods, but each carrier and countries customs organisations interprets the IATA’s (International Air Transport Association) laws in their own way therefore it is difficult to predict if there will be a problem.  The majority of the time orders containing Pin Batteries get through customs without issue but wherever possible it is better to select Priority shipping so your order is trackable and sent via Fedex
