We ship tablets/POS Computers etc. with Lithium Batteries and reading the Federal Register made it more confusing. Can you provide or do you have a book or pamphlet that I could purchase that would provide me the information I need for shipping equipment with these batteries.
Hi Ed, we recommend our 2016 A.I.R. Shipper, it is up to date with the latest and we provide addendums throughout the year to keepp up with the pace of change on shipping lithium batteries. http://www.labelmaster.com/shop/books/air-transport/a-i-r-shipper/2016-a-i-r-shipper-standard-edition-modified-air0074
I do not understand the infographic.. 3090 vs. 3480 what? 3090 cells or 3090Wh? I want to ship a 2060Wh battery pack (alone) from thailand to sweden in the end of march 2020.. is it possible??. It makes no difference if it is packed in a fire-proof box or is mostly discharged?
Hmmm…that is a great question, please give our regulatory department a call for clarification. You can reach them from outside the U.S. at +1 773-478-0900.
