USPS to Resume Overseas Shipping of Lithium Batteries
Lithium batteries are included in many popular electronic devices such as iPads, Kindles, smartphones, cameras and other electronic devices.
In March 2012, the USPS banned the shipment of lithium batteries in order to comply with standards set by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) and the Universal Postal Union (UPU). The batteries can explode or catch fire in certain conditions during overseas transport.
The USPS is still prohibiting lithium batteries that are not installed in the equipment they are intended to operate. Get more info on the International Acceptance of Lithium Batteries from the USPS website.
