Ground Only Shipments

Lithium / Li-Po Batteries

Both rechargeable and non-rechargeable power sources, common in computers, cell phones, cameras, and other small electronic devices. If dropped, crushed, or short-circuited, these batteries can release dangerous amounts of heat and may ignite, and are dangerous in fires. Special regulations, with special labeling or marking requirements, apply to shipping these batteries by Ground and Air both domestically and internationally.

Due to these regulations, certain Lithium batteries may be restricted for sale to Alaska, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, Guam, Canada, and other International locations.

Due to the Watt-hour rating of the cell or battery, certain lithium batteries may be considered a hazardous or dangerous good item. Shipments requiring dangerous goods shipping documents are shipped via FedEx. FedEx Ground hazardous materials shipments may not be shipped to, from or within Hawaii or Alaska.
